Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett echoed a similar sentiment.

He’s simply the best example I know of, of what you want a football player and a person to be—on and off the field, Garrett said, per David Helman of the Cowboys’ official site.

Witten is the franchise leader in receptions (1,152) and receiving yards (12,448), and his 68 touchdowns are third all time among Cowboys players.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen first reported April 27 that Witten was retiring and transitioning to a broadcasting career, so Thursday’s press conference confirmed what many already expected.

So it goes when a middling team with a quarterback drought has a pair of first-round picks and three selections overall in the top 100. The new faces have to come in and make an impact right away. 

There is about $2.4 million in cap savings if the Giants can trade Flowers, as they reportedly tried to during the draft. ESPN reported the asking price was a mid-round pick, which is too high given the established market rate.

Here’s what Hall of famer Namath says should happen to ex-49ers Kaepernick, Reid More Joe Namath doesn’t do equivocation. So when he was asked about Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid on the FOX Business show Varney & Co., the Hall of Fame quarterback cut loose with one of his famed quick releases. I think in Eric’s case and even Kaepernick’s case they’re good enough players to be out there and having a job, Namath said, according to TMZ Sports. Kaepernick and Reid, both ex-49ers who were in the forefront of the social injustice protests in 2016, have been unable to find NFL jobs. They have received limited interest, which has evaporated when they decline to give assurances they will discontinue their high profile advocacy. Both players have filed collusion grievances with the NFL.

NFL to look into Russ Brandon’s departure from Buffalo Bills, Sabres More The Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys NFL is planning to look into the circumstances that led the Buffalo Bills to part Cheap China NFL Jerseys ways with managing partner and president Russ Brandon, the Buffalo News reported Thursday.

No-brainer: Eagles pick up Doug Pederson’s option; how long is his contract?

The Astros scored four in the seventh on Tanaka and reliever Chad Green, and that was looked like it would be the difference in the game, especially when Carlos Correa homered in the eighth to make a 5-3 game.

But the Yankees never quiet and pulled out the win to finish off a tremendous 6-1 roadtrip that began last weekend with a three-game sweep in Anaheim last weekend

Rehabbing in Tampa from March right ankle surgery, first baseman Greg Bird is scheduled to return to action on Monday by hitting in an extended spring training game.

MLB will announce next Tuesday that the Yankees and Red Sox will play two games in London in June 2019, the Associated Press reported.

It’s by far the most important task for a rookie in Cincinnati a year removed from Dalton looking skittish while stumbling to a 59.9 completion percentage with 25 touchdowns and 12 picks. 

The rest of Cincinnati’s 11 picks have it much easier. 

Second-round pick Jessie Bates III will rotate in with two starters. Third-round pick Sam Hubbard will rotate in along one of the league’s deepest lines. Running back Mark Walton out of the fourth round sits third on the depth chart. 

Also interesting is third-round linebacker Malik Jefferson, who will have to see some time right out of the gates as Vontaze Burfict serves a four-game ban. Darius Phillips, a fifth-round corner and superb FBS return man, could take over primary duties. 

For the most part though, a roster as talented as Cincinnati’s doesn’t need major contributions from rookies, simply a strong showing from the first-rounder tasked with compensating for mistakes by the front office. 

The Giants did not win a championship in California until their dynasty of the last decade, but Willie helped take the team to the World Series in 1962, and came up just short.

A few years ago, I ran into Willie again in Cooperstown at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Like me, he has gone blind. He told me he was like me now. In 2008, Willie was one of many legendary ballplayers who stood at their respective positions prior to the All-Star Game at Yankee Cheap Baseball Jerseys Stadium. Some people criticized Willie for not shaking the hand of Josh Hamilton, who Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys took center field to start the game.

Browns Exercise Damarious Randall’s Option

The Browns have exercised the fifth-year option for defensive back Damarious Randall, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. The Browns acquired Randall from the Packers via trade earlier this offseason.

The fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only, so the Browns will have the option to bail for any non-health reason. Assuming he remains with the club through 2019, Randall will earn $9.069MM, as shown on PFR’s fifth-year option tracker.

The New England Patriots have been to three of the last four Super Bowls and seven straight AFC Championship Games. They’ve won 14 of the last 15 AFC East titles.

The one time they didn’t win the division over the past decade-and-a-half (2008), they still finished 11-5 even though future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 1.

After losing key defensive pieces like cornerback Richard Sherman and defensive end Michael Bennett this offseason, Seattle’s defense figures to be a step behind the Legion of Boom of years past.

Despite needing offensive line help for years, Seattle drafted a running back in the first round of the draft. Its most significant addition to the line may be fifth-round selection Jamarco Jones, although he isn’t a lock for playing time (or a roster spot, for that matter).

While San Francisco gets to clean out a fourth-place schedule and the Rams try to make the most of their window while Jared Goff is still on a rookie deal, the Seahawks will be the Russell Wilson Show. Wilson hasn’t missed a game since entering the league in 2012, but the Seahawks might not win a game in his absence if he does this year.

However, the Patriots were a wild card in the process. 

Another team had said,’You may get a big surprise on draft day, at No. 2, if he’s available.’ And it was the Patriots, Mills said.

They had 23 and they had 31 and they had two seconds. We thought,’That’s gonna be a heck of a move, to get up that high from where they are.’ And of course he wasn’t available Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China so we never knew if that was a reality or not.

The Browns selected Mayfield with the first pick, while the New York Giants Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike took Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at No. 2.
