Giants’ Nate Solder avoids knee injury after fight scare

Imagine this: It’s a balmy late-spring (June 14 is technically still spring) day. Your team’s rookie guard and veteran defensive tackle get into a bit of a tussle, a good old-fashioned offseason scrap.

In the process, the same team’s high-priced left tackle gets rolled up on.

Few more frivolous reasons for injury exist in this game than a nightmarish situation such as that. Instead, Solder is unharmed, and both Hernandez and Harrison are cleared of fault. No harm, no foul.

We’ll have to wait to see if the latter two are chummy entering training camp.

Take a look at what the team’s Super Bowl rings look like, and players posting their new bling to social media.

The Eagles’ Super Bowl LII win was the franchise’s first NFL championship since 1960.

Fair or silly for Jets’ RBs coach to compare Eli McGuire to LaDainian Tomlinson?

The Jets drafted running back Eli McGuire in Round 6 last year, and he carried 88 times for 315 yards and one touchdown as a rookie. He gained 3.6 yards per carry. He caught 17 passes for 177 yards and one touchdown. A solid enough start to his career.

But Jets running backs coach Stump Mitchell Orioles Cheap Jerseys thinks McGuire can do so much more. Mitchell on Thursday actually compared McGuire to Hall of Fame ex-Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson Super Cheap Jerseys Fans which was unexpected, to say the least.

Against college offensive tackles, that style of play works. In the NFL, pass rushes are either predicated off speed and inside counter moves. If Barnett can prove to the NFL that he can cross the face of tackles as a pass-rusher, giving him a shorter distance to the quarterback as a slower straight-line edge defender, that could go a long way for his career. Barnett is basically the only defensive end in Philadelphia promised any long-term money, meaning that his emergence could save the Eagles a lot of cap space should he command a starting role.

Kevin Durant taking a discount to help the Warriors is another form of player power

Kevin Durant took a sharper discount than expected upon agreeing to a new deal with the Golden State Warriors this week. Reports indicate he’ll sign for two years and $53 million, a good deal less than the $63 million over two years he was expected to take. Even that is a haircut on Durant’s natural max of two years and $72 million, which any team with cap space (which the Warriors do not have) could offer.

The Kings continue their quest to make Basketball Twitter swoon — sign Vince Carter to a one-year deal.

Speaking of former Grizzlies, the franchise’s front office wrote a beautiful letter about Zach Randolph in which they announced Memphis would retire his jersey.

Nathaniel Friedman on the ripple effect caused by the Warriors’ dominance.

The Wizards and Nets are getting rather petty over Otto Porter’s offer sheet. Washington will end up matching, but now his contract is going to be way messier than it needed to be. Just pay your very good restricted free agents, people!

The most exciting news of the day? Lob City is back, and it doesn’t need Chris Paul. The Clippers won the Milos Teodosic sweepstakes, bringing the Serbian highlight machine over on a two-year Super Cheap Jerseys Fans deal. He’s instantly the flashiest passer in the NBA and maybe one of the five best. The downside: You Wholesale Jerseys China and I both know he’s going to come off the bench behind Austin Rivers.

Three reasons Falcons suffered colossal collapse

The Falcons had the Super Bowl won. At least that’s what everyone thought when they entered the fourth quarter up 28-9 against the Patriots.

Unfortunately for Atlanta, a city that has never won a Super Bowl, a number of things led to a colossal collapse and a fifth championship for Tom Brady.

Here are three reasons why the Falcons lost:

Thus, Berry could, in the narrowest, most short-sighted of senses, be content with the expected tag for safeties this season. Depending on the source (because the actual numbers won’t be determined until this week), he’s due to make between $11 million and $13 million, a raise over the $10.8 million he made last year when the Chiefs tagged him the first time.

Everybody who lines up this time of year and lectures the Super Cheap Jerseys China players about not being grateful for the fat one-year salary they’re guaranteed through the tag just doesn’t get it. No matter how many times that notion is debunked by the players themselves, collectively and individually, the public remains willfully clueless about what the players clearly prefer.

Security and leverage. The less they have of the latter, the Super Cheap Jerseys Fans less they’ll have of the former. And the NFL being what it is, they don’t Basketball Jerseys For Sale have all that much of the former in the first place.
