Rams have plenty of cap space in 2019, and they’ll need it

The Rams are building a team designed to go for broke in 2018, with the offseason acquisitions of players like Brandin Cooks, Ndamukong Suh, Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. But can they afford to keep all of those players in 2019?

The good news is, the Rams are in great salary cap shape for 2019: According to Spotrac.com, the Rams have $81 million in 2019 cap space, the second-most of any team in the NFL.

The bad news is, the Rams are going to need every penny of that cap space in 2019 to keep their top players in Los Angeles.

Peters, as the Chiefs’ 2015 first-round draft pick, has an affordable salary of $1.7 million this year. But that salary will skyrocket to $9.5 million when the Rams pick up his fifth-year option for 2019. Ditto for the Rams’ own 2015 first-round pick, Todd Gurley, who whose salary likewise skyrockets from $2.3 million this year to $9.6 million next year.

Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner is on the franchise tag this year, which means he’s not under contract in 2019, which means the Rams are either going to lose him or pay him a whole lot of money a year from now.

After a full medical evaluation, it became clear that Cravens was dealing with head trauma.

“The Redskins brought me in, they told me they wanted me to get checked out, make sure I was all right,” Cravens said. “I go to a doctor and he tells me I’m going through something I didn’t even know I was going through. He said this is the reason why you feel this way and you’re in no condition to be making these decisions because of this and I guarantee if you rehab and get yourself better, you won’t be feeling this way.

“Once I got cleared in December, it was like I was a completely different person. Looking back at myself I’m thinking, that’s crazy. I thought I was just messed up but come to find out, I was going through something I wasn’t even aware of.’’

His former team wasn’t willing to wait for Cravens to get healthy; Washington placed him on the reserve/left squad list before Cravens could return from a four-week leave. His new team wanted him, obviously. And Cravens is now preparing to make an impact on the Broncos defense; he says that he’ll play strong safety in the base package and linebacker in third-down packages.buccaneers_044

SN sources: It’s decision time for Peyton Manning Jersey and TV

It’s decision time for Peyton Manning.

Said a source: Thursday is more appealing [to Manning]. It’s only 11 weeks . It should have a better game schedule than Monday Night Football. It leaves his weekends free too 鈥?which is important.

Fox and Manning’s representatives declined to comment. Manning is represented by super-agent Sandy Montag.

Fox and ESPN are willing to pay Manning $10 million or more a year, said sources. That’s an unheard of sum for an NFL game analyst (Gruden made $6.5 million as ESPN’s highest-paid employee).

Just overran it, Hosmer said. I put my head down trying to make up some ground. By the time I looked up, it was past me. It’s on me.

A single by Brian McCann and a steal by pinch runner Derek Fisher — ruled safe after a video review flipped the call — set up the unusual ending.

Alex Bregman hit the pop, and Hosmer, signed to a rich free agent deal by the Padres this offseason, ran in to make the play.
Erik Walden Elite Jersey
But with reliever Phil Maton and third baseman Christian Villanueva staying out of the way, Hosmer suddenly realized he was in trouble and had no chance to catch it. The ball plopped onto the grass a few feet behind him, between the plate, mound and first base.

Fisher scored without a throw on what was scored as a single.

That’s one Authentic Brad Marchand Jersey of the good things about this team — we don’t take anything for granted, Bregman said. He was busting his butt from second base. He could have easily jogged and said whatever, but that’s not how we play here. We play hard and Derek did a great job.

Now, Barrett must prove himself all over again to NFL scouts just to get a chance.

The conversations I had with scouts, I feel like a lot of them have said they’ve been scouting me for three years or whatever the case might be, Barrett said. Basically everything they need to know about me, they mostly know. It was good conversation, nothing negative or bad and so with that, to continue to improve and show that I’ve got better through this time I’ve had being out of school.

Jameis Winston says he will make better use of DeSean Jackson Jersey in 2018

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers invested a lot in wide receiver DeSean Jackson last offseason. He didn’t have the best season, and his quarterback seems to believe he’s at least partly to blame.

On Friday, Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston vowed to do better by Jackson, responding to an article questioning Jackson’s Dave Winfield Jersey future with the organization with a defiant pledge.

After the Caps grabbed a 2-1 lead in the first period, they added to it to open the second. Kempny threaded a slap shot from the point through traffic and under the crossbar 3:44 into the second for a 3-1 advantage.

That lead held until the Devils answered in the final minute before intermission. Maroon picked up his second assist of the night when he dropped a pass to Miles Wood at the crease, allowed Wood to punch in his 19th of the season.

Jenkins agreed to terms with the Bears in March of 2017 but did not make the initial roster out of training camp. However, the Bears re-signed him prior to Week 1.

The sixth-year veteran could be in line to serve as nose tackle depth behind starter Eddie Goldman. Jenkins played in eight games for the Bears last season.

Opening Day for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders was a fun experience Friday night for Jace Peterson, who joined the Yankees organization in January on a minor-league contract and then had a miserable spring training.

Kids Darren Sproles Jersey A second baseman who plays pretty much everywhere, Peterson started the opener in center field because, like the Yankees, his Triple-A club was in a big-time crunch for healthy outfielders.

The highlight of this chilly evening at PNC Field in Moosic, Pa., was the RailRiders staging a five-run rally in the bottom of the ninth to pull out a 6-5 International League win over Syracuse.

Hogan was selected in the fifth-round of the 2016 draft by the Kansas City Chiefs but failed to make the opening day roster. He signed to the Browns’ practice squad before being called up to the active roster in October of that season. For his career, the 25-year-old Stanford product has appeared in eight games, making one start in 2017. While the dual-threat quarterback has shown some flashes in relief, he struggled mightily to move the offense in the lone start of his career.

Given that the Browns received a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick for Kessler (just about the lowest compensation you can get), who had eight starts, it’d be surprising if a team were willing to part with any draft pick for Hogan.

As a Raider, King has punted plenty in Denver’s mile-high altitude and while it’s one thing to punt here once here, he may have to make adjustments over an eight-game season.

There is a lot more you can do with the altitude,” King said. I’ve always enjoyed punting out here in the altitude just because the ball travels further. It’s something I’m going to have to get used to. I definitely have to get a feel for my leg when it comes to putting the ball inside the corners and everything. Denver is a punter’s paradise. While I’m competing, I’m going to see if I can take advantage of it.

As Jeffery continues to recover from his shoulder injury, the Eagles will likely spend most of the off-season with their No. 1 quarterback (Carson Wentz) and No. 1 wide receiver (Jeffery) in recovery from major injuries.

If I had to do it again, I’d do it again, Jeffery told NJ Advance Media. The pain comes and goes, he added, but you gotta be tough for it… you gotta be Philly tough.

Jeffery said he anticipates returning to action sometime in late-July or early-August, but regardless will for sure be back in time for Week 1.

Watkins’ chances of turning back into the guy who looked like a budding superstar at the end of 2015 will depend on that foot, and while the upside is still theoretically there, he comes with an enormous amount of risk.

New catch rule passes unanimously

The NFL’s owners voted 32-0 to approve a new catch rule, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports.

But when we look ahead to 2018 and the uptick in snaps McKinley should see after defensive end Adrian Clayborn left in free agency, I expect the former UCLA star to elevate his game as a pass-rusher with more technique at the point of attack.

For the majority of edge rushers in the league, that developmental jump comes in their second seasons. With tape to study, and game reps to lean on as teaching tools, this is when we see real growth in counter moves and the ability to set up offensive tackles. McKinley already has displayed the burst to get off the ball — and his motor never stops. Now, add in the core fundamentals to pair with that 4.59-second 40 speed on the edge Look out. McKinley is in a spot to boost his profile as one of the top young edge defenders in the NFL.

Butler, entering his sixth NFL season, played the past three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and totaled 43 catches for 794 yards and six touchdowns while serving mostly as the No. 4 receiver behind Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley.

Butler was selected by Oakland in the seventh round out of San Diego State in the 2013 draft and played his first two seasons with the Raiders.

Overall, the 28-year-old receiver has appeared in 61 games, with 73 catches for 1,177 yards and eight touchdowns.

When free agency opened, the Chiefs surprisingly paid a premium price to land wide receiver Sammy Watkins. But when we look at the Kansas City offensive system under coach Andy Reid, Watkins is yet another weapon — in an offense loaded at the skill positions — to build around Mahomes. And the young quarterback brings the big-time arm, the ability to make off-schedule plays and the movement skills that mesh with Reid’s playcalling.patriots_089
