Ryan Tannehill: Mobility will still be a weapon for me

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has suffered a pair of knee injuries since he last took a meaningful snap for the Dolphins, which has led to some questions about whether he’ll be able to make the same use of his mobility that he did when he was healthy.

Tannehill is not one of the people questioning that ability, however. Tannehill believes that his ability to make plays with his legs will remain an asset he can use to his advantage moving forward.

From 2015 to 2017, no player in the majors had more defensive runs saved than Kiermaier’s 89. In that time, the second most belonged to Andrelton Simmons (75). It’s the most defensive runs saved in a three-year span since Simmons had 94 from 2013 to 2015 (note — Kiermaier injured his thumb Sunday and could miss 8-12 weeks). — Matt Willis, ESPN Stats & Information

Since the start of 2016, only four players in the majors have hit over.300 and stolen more than 50 bases — Segura, Trea Turner, Mike Trout, and José Altuve. The latter two have been named American League MVP in that span. — Foreman, ESPN Stats & Information

(It’s admirable that an anonymous person would be careful enough to protect his/her good unknown name by ensuring accuracy.)

Redditlover1981 has decided to accept guesses (and that went exactly how you think it would go), hinting that the news is negative and it’s about a current multi year patriot.

Taking that description literally, it include anyone who has been with the team for more than one year. So we’ll wait to see what the anonymous person/possible burner account has to say, and whether it comes to fruition.

Spring in Foxboro is for teaching, so most of the work the players are doing is individual anyway. And having Brian Hoyer, who’s 32 and in his second stint as Brady’s backup in New England, has helped assure that things wouldn’t fly off the rails. Ideal? No. But the work that got done for the others hasn’t changed much, because the competitive phase of the Patriots’ offseason really starts in July. In essence, the absences of Brady and Gronkowski up until this week were treated as if those players were unavailable with an injury.

Things were clearly different on Wednesday at the NovaCare Complex.

From the extra security, to the close to 100 media members waiting to get into the team’s locker room, it was clear that the Eagles ‘ now very public battle with President Donald Trump and the White House was hitting a crescendo.

It was great. Feels good, Gronkowski said. A lot of excitement obviously. . . . Jitters, too.

We’ll see. Some talent went out the door, to be sure. The Dolphins need young guys like Fitzpatrick and 2018 second-round linebacker Raekwon McMillan—players Miami loved in part because they already have hints of the intangibles of Amendola and Gore—to grow up fast. Tannehill, who got full clearance from his Texas surgeon the week before OTAs began and didn’t even wear a brace the last few weeks at practice, has to re-acclimate quickly, too.

Romine’s work behind the plate combined with his improved bat has some fans and even a few scouts thinking the Yankees are better off starting him ahead of 2017 All-Star Gary Sanchez, a tremendous talent who is hitting close to.200 and remains a work in process at blocking balls.

I’ve heard that, but that’s not what’s going on right now, Romine said. Now my job is to back up Gary. I spent a lot of years early worrying about all that and thinking I should be here, I should be there. Well, I’m here and I have to take care of business.

To ultimately win, Beckham may need to show that the Chicago Park District, which owns and operates Soldier Field, had a role in the team’s decision to prevent Beckham from wearing Packers gear on the sidelines. Which means that NFL players may need to show that local stadium authorities had a role in the rule that requires players to stand for the anthem.

Or maybe not. In Grimm’s article, one legal expert compares the situation to hosting a private birthday party in a public park. NFL games represent a private business endeavor that plays out in a public arena that anyone who pays the appropriate fee may attend.

30 cities under consideration for XFL franchises

The XFL has its new Commissioner, and he was Tuesday’s guest on the #PFTPM podcast.

Oliver Luck, the former West Virginia A.D. who will leave the NCAA to join the XFL, chatted for roughly 20 minutes regarding a variety of topics. The full interview appears below.

Among 2017-18 All-Stars, no one gets back in transition faster than Minnesota’s Jimmy Butler.

It’s hard to believe a team that hasn’t made the playoffs in 14 years could make the postseason and still have its season considered unsuccessful, but that is the tightrope the Timberwolves are walking. After so much optimism early in the season, Towns, Wiggins & Co. were not able to pick up the slack when Butler went down. The only way the Wolves’ season can be considered a success is if they claw their way into the second round.

That might seem like a bad look for a player who was acquired in a trade that sent a third-round draft pick to the Giants, not to mention for a player who’s costing the Buccaneers $12.5 million this season. But Bucs coach Dirk Koetter didn’t sound particularly concerned about Pierre-Paul deciding not to participate in voluntary work.

We’d love to have everybody here. That’s a perfect world, and we don’t live in a perfect world, unfortunately, said Koetter.

The 29-year-old Pierre-Paul had 8.5 sacks last season for the Giants, and the Bucs are hoping to get similar or even more production out of him in Tampa. Even if he’s not in Tampa just yet.

The NFL is trying to top last year’s fantastic draft experience in Philadelphia by getting more than 400,000 people out this week in Dallas.

Former Bucs quarterback Jeff Garcia had a strange Twitter exchange with Tampa Bay Times writer Greg Auman, who correctly pointed out that if Garcia wanted to announce Tampa Bay’s third-round pick, the team would first need to acquire one.

Colts waive Kolby Listenbee from injured reserve

The Colts waived wide receiver Kolby Listenbee from injured reserve Thursday.

The team waived him with an injury designation May 18. After passing through waivers, Listenbee was placed on Indianapolis’ injured reserve list.

The Colts signed Listenbee to their practice squad December 13. He spent nine weeks on the Dolphins’ practice squad.

He originally entered the NFL as a sixth-round pick of the Bills. Listenbee has not played in an NFL game.

Gesicki is a pass-catching athlete. His 57 receptions and nine touchdowns in 2017 were both single-season school records for a tight end. He was the New Jersey prep football player of the year as a senior, finished as his school’s all-time leading scorer in basketball (1,867 points) and won the state slam dunk contest.

Wilcox, 27, was actually signed by the Buccaneers last spring, but traded to the Steelers before the start of the regular season. He’s a solid special teamer if nothing else.

The 49ers are looking at Jimmie Ward at cornerback, and have Jaquiski Tartt and Adrian Colbert working with the ones at safety at the moment.

Kirk shows the suddenness scouts want to allow separation in route running. He should contribute in the slot quickly and averaged a double-take-worthy 22 yards per punt return in his career with seven return touchdowns (six punt return, one kickoff return).

Wynn had shoulder surgery following the Senior Bowl, so his pre-draft work has been limited. He started at both left tackle and guard for the Bulldogs. He understands hand placement and has the athleticism and ability to finish blocks.

He was a 1,000-yard receiver in 2017 — 1,033 yards, 12.9 yards per catch and eight touchdowns — despite catching passes from four different quarterbacks. Moore has some rough edges, but his desire to win every battle for the ball and run-after-catch ability are a good start.

NFL wades through murky waters without a senior P.R. exec

As Memorial Day weekend approaches, the NFL has had a week to forget.

Things started to go off the rails on Tuesday, when some fans reacted strongly to a revised kickoff rule that could be a precursor to getting rid of the kickoff altogether. Later that day, NFL V.P. of officiating Al Riveron made it clear that the new helmet rule applies in the trenches, enhancing concerns that the prohibition against lowering the helmet and initiating contact will change the game dramatically.

The sooner the NFL hires a new Lockhart, the better off the NFL will be. But the asking price may be going up, and the extra money could be justified by regarding it as hazard pay.

Sam Hinkie was the 76ers General Manager when they dismantled their roster and pinned their hopes on coming up with stars in the draft that would provide the foundation for a winning team. Hinkie left the team in April 2016, so he wasn’t around when the plan started bearing fruit this season.

Hinkie put the pieces in place, though, so the Broncos picked his brain this week, however. Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports Hinkie spoke to members of the scouting, analytics, football administration and conditioning departments about how to best use the influx of data that teams collect in order to see benefits in all areas of the organization.

The Sixers spent five years out of the playoffs as they put their trust in a process that ultimately yielded phenoms Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons and this season’s 52-30 record. The Broncos would surely prefer it doesn’t take that long to get back on the right track.

He just told us where he stood at, said tackle Kelvin Beachum, who is part of the Players Coalition that has talked to the league about this issue.

Beachum said he wished the players had been more involved before the league’s decision was made.

Bills wideout Zay Jones has knee surgery

The turbulent offseason of Zay Jones has hit another bump.

Via Vic Carruci of the Buffalo News, Bills coach Sean McDermott said Jones had undergone knee surgery, and would miss the rest of their offseason workouts.

The 33-year-old Miller was playing in the final year of a contract last season, so as a free agent, he could not collect injury protection.

Giants defensive end Avery Moss fell victim to a cyber attack on Monday, as many revealing pictures and videos were published of the 2017 fifth-round pick.

Several of Moss’ accounts were hacked, ESPN confirmed, including his Twitter, where nude photos and videos were published. After NFL security got involved, the posts were deleted less than 30 minutes after the hacking.

Moss’ Venmo account was also hacked, according to ESPN.

One of the common arguments raised regarding on-the-job NFL anthem protests relates to the notion that, for most people, this kind of behavior would not be tolerated in their workplaces, and that the First Amendment rights the players hope to exercise on the sidelines don’t restrict private employers from establishing workplace rules that prohibit it. Regardless of whether those arguments have any real merit (especially when the anthem is being played in stadiums built in whole or in part by public money), the President’s latest words on the subject apply far more broadly than to the players at an NFL game.

You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or . . . you shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.

This applies to anyone and everyone who is attending the game. All 70,000-plus people. Every last one of them. It applies to the fans in the stands who aren’t taking off their hats and aren’t standing at attention and aren’t ignoring their cellphones and aren’t not eating hot dogs and aren’t not screaming profanities and other insults at players from the visiting team.

It applies to the fans who are in the rest room or in line to get there. It applies to fans in concession lines. It applies to the concession workers.

It applies to everyone in the press box. It applies to everyone in the luxury suites. It particularly applies to the owners and their family members, friends, sponsors, and other assorted muckety-mucks who are schmoozing in the back of the box while the anthem is playing. (This year, there could be some interesting fan-made videos of what actually is happening in the owners’ suites during the anthem.)

Chiefs mum on whether they’ll discourage home of the Chiefs refrain to cap anthem

The broad insistence on respect for the national anthem by the NFL, coupled with the President’s suggestion that anyone who fails to stand proudly for the anthem maybe . . . shouldn’t be in the country, fairly should bring unprecedented attention to the behavior of everyone attending an NFL game, including the fans.

Crews specifically declined to address the question of whether drowning out the last word of the song with a word that isn’t part of the song constitutes respect for the anthem. At some point, however, the Chiefs likely will have to cross that bridge, because the NFL’s latest effort to close the door on the anthem issue has opened plenty of others, as fan behavior during the anthem becomes a belated focal point in the effort to determine whether the respect that the league and the President demand from the players is being demonstrated by anyone and everyone who is in the venue.

The team announced on Wednesday that they have signed undrafted rookie tight end Austin Roberts. Roberts left UCLA after playing in 24 games and catching 35 passes for 500 yards and three touchdowns over the last three seasons.

Roberts joins Virgil Green, Braedon Bowman and Sean Culkin at tight end for the Chargers. Long snapper Anthony Kukwa was waived in a corresponding move.

It seems like Smith will probably live freed from the burden of feeling too devastated by his brain-lock moment the other night, when he clearly thought the Cavaliers were ahead after he snared a key late-game rebound (though he foolishly insisted otherwise later, after a nation of lip-readers had already seen him indict himself).

In truth, it’s probably the best way to be, because being able to laugh at yourself is one way to walk out of such an embarrassing moment with your self-esteem somewhat intact.

Take Garo Yepremian, the Dolphins kicker who made the ill-fated attempt to throw a pass after he had a field goal blocked late in Super Bowl XII, saw his wounded duck intercepted and brought back for a touchdown by Washington’s Mike Bass, and briefly imperiled Miami’s perfect 1972 season.

Colts wear shirts supporting Noblesville school shooting victims at practice

School shootings have become an all too common occurrence in our country and Noblesville, Indiana was the site of one last week.

Thanks to middle school teacher and former Southern Illinois defensive lineman Jason Seaman, the shooting ended with a limited number of casualties. Seaman tackled the shooter while the attack was in progress and before anyone could be killed. Seaman and 13-year-old Ella Whistler were injured and the Colts have helped in the effort to raise money for their medical care.

In the statement, the Trust said it had communicated this with her.

Although Beth has declined our invitations to discuss her qualifications for the last two years, we will continue to proactively engage and meet with any of the Bowlen children who express a desire to earn the right to succeed their father, the statement said. We will vigorously defend Pat’s plan in responding to these and any statements that are contrary to Pat’s words and intentions.

Although Clowney played in all 16 games for the first time in his career last season, he had arthroscopic knee surgery after the season. Clowney has been at the Texans’ facility, but he’s focusing on rehabbing his knee, not doing practice drills.

Clowney is heading into the final year of his rookie contract and set to make $12.3 million this season. The Texans have indicated that they’re hoping to get a long-term extension done with him this year, which would suggest that they’re confident he’s going to be able to get healthy and stay healthy. Even if he’s not ready to go just yet.

Johnny Manziel was content with his first time in a game in more than two years.

Manziel was 9-of-12 passing for 80 yards in his CFL debut as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats lost 36-18 to the Toronto Argonauts in an exhibition game Friday night.

I felt like I was able to get in there and handle the situation well, get some completions and get the guys some balls, Manziel said. I really wasn’t nervous going into it, I was just kind of going out and letting the ball rip.
