Aas Pas Hai Khuda is a song from the movie Anjaana Anjaani, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopda. This song is brilliantly sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and the composition by Vishal-Shekhar is also great. This song is in F major chord. So the chords to this song goes like this : [F] […]
He’s got an edge to him; I like that, McAdoo said of Mayfield. He’s gonna lead; they’re gonna follow him. I didn’t see a lot of pro-style football in his college tape, and if you’re short you have to be able to make up for it some way, somehow, and personality doesn’t do that.
McAdoo rated Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen and Mason Rudolph ahead of Mayfield.
I didn’t think he was a great athlete, McAdoo said. This guy is kinda like a pocket quarterback that is short and with small hands. That’s what I worry about.
I love that the producers open up with a blocked shot—Williams just destroys some poor Arizona guard. He does the same thing to a poor kid from Auburn later on in the clip. We also to see Williams just taking it to Penn State in a matchup that would be a lot more exciting if they were playing football. There might be a few too many alley-oops in here … we get it, dude can finish in the paint. We saw that in the Tournament. Based on the highlights, Williams seems like he might have gone higher 15 years ago … like fellow Louisiana product Stromile Swift, who went No. 2 overall in 2000. But even if the NBA doesn’t value his skill set as much he’s a solid highlight player.
Conklin, who has lost 10 pounds, down to 310, is learning patience.
You don’t want to come back too early, and hurt it again, Conklin said. You want to make sure you are full health and ready to go. If I come back too early, I am not only hurting myself, but I am hurting the team. If I can’t play at the level I need to perform at, there’s really no reason I should be out there playing. I think I need to earn my way back health-wise and practicing and that is something I am working toward and something I am excited to get back to.
In the draft on April 18, Dallas, the team many pegged as Moss’s landing spot, took linebacker Greg Ellis out of North Carolina at No. The Tennessee Oilers at No. 16 took the draft’s first receiver, Kevin Dyson. Linebacker Brian Simmons went to the Bengals at 17, running back Robert Edwards to the Patriots at 18, Vonnie Holliday to the Packers at 19 and Terry Fair to the Lions at No. 20.
Fun fact I stumbled into a few weeks ago: There are only three 30-somethings on the Cowboys’ roster. For a team that just a few years ago relied on aging stars like Tony Romo and Jason Witten and DeMarcus Ware, it sure happened quietly.
The 10 highest-paid players on the roster by APY are DeMarcus Lawrence (26), Zack Martin (27), Tyron Smith (27), Travis Frederick (27), Tyrone Crawford (27), La’El Collins (27), Sean Lee (31), Tavon Austin (27), Ezekiel Elliott (22) and Allen Hurns (27). Dak Prescott is 24. And the two guys over 30, aside from Lee, are kicker Dan Bailey and long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur.
That shouldn’t be the case in 2018; this team is favored to win the AFC West. Head coach Anthony Lynn even recently lamented to The MMQB’s Albert Breer that someone had told him the Chargers had the second-most talented roster in the league. While maybe a tad hyperbolistic, the notion is not ridiculous. Rivers is a bona fide field general, and his receiving corps is loaded, even with tight end Hunter Henry out with a torn ACL. The backfield and offensive line are improving, and the defense has what every team covets: perimeter cover corners (Casey Hayward and, if healthy, Jason Verrett) and dominant edge rushers (Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram). The interior of the D was addressed in the draft, with safety Derwin James in Round 1, linebacker Uchenna Nwosu in Round 2 and defensive tackle Justin Jones in Round 3.
Nowadays, when we say sleeper what we really mean is undervalued. No matter how much information is available, there will always been undervalued players. Given that player valuation is an imperfect exercise, the fantasy community at large is going to miss on handful of players every single season. Here, we try to help you identify those undervalued players early in your draft prep. Below are our top fantasy football sleeper candidates for the 2018 season.
Everyone in the fantasy football universe likes Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham Jr. and Evan Engram. If you like all three, how can you not also like their quarterback? Either they’re overvalued or Manning is undervalued, and I believe it will be the latter. Barkley looks set to carry on the recent trend of dominant rookie backs, taking the torch from Ezekiel Elliott and Kareem Hunt. Engram is a prototypical tight end in the modern game who made a seamless transition to the game as a rookie. Beckham has never been a bust in anything in his life. Remember, too, that Manning spent most of last year without Beckham, and a good chunk of it without Sterling Shepard, as well. Don’t overthink this one. If you like Barkley, Beckham and Engram—and who doesn’t—you should be targeting Manning in every draft and auction.
In June, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said that workouts with wide receivers are part of his pre-training camp plan without saying when those workouts will take place.
It appears they will be taking place in California this week. Wide receiver Chester Rogers said in a tweet on Sunday that he was on his way to Stanford, where Luck played his college ball and spends time during the offseason.

This is the Wimbledon of a lifetime for Isner. The only hitch in the fairy tale is that it’s the same thing for Anderson — and only one of them will know the thrill of being a Wimbledon finalist.
I wouldn’t call them methodical or organized, and the aggressiveness comes and goes,” said one team official who has dealt with the Orioles recently. There is a lot of stop-and-go to the process.”
Will a deal come to fruition before or after the All-Star break? Barring the mother of all trade-deadline shockers, Machado will be gone soon enough and the other position-player dominoes will start falling. One intriguing Plan B name making the rounds: Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier.
In recent years, suspensions have been imposed on multiple front-office employees who were arrested for DUI. In 2010, the league suspended former Lions CEO Tom Lewand for 30 days, with a reduction to 21. The NFL also fined Lewand $100,000.
In 2013, the Broncos suspended executives Matt Russell and Tom Heckert after separate DUI incidents. Russell, who crashed into a police car, was absent from work 60 days. He later received a seven-month prison term, but he missed no further employment due to a work-release allowance. Heckert received a 30-day suspension.
The following year, the NFL suspended Colts owner Jim Irsay six games and fined him $500,000 for driving while impaired.
Multiple assistant coaches have faced no suspension after DUI incidents in recent years, including Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards and Packers safeties coach Darren Perry. In 2006, then-Lions assistant Joe Cullen was suspended one game and fined $20,000 after a pair of vehicular arrests — one of which happened after he showed up naked at a Wendy’s drive-through.
His Saints were anchored by Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham, who led the team in targets, and Cooks was flanked by a versatile one-two combo at wideout between Kenny Stills and Marques Colston. In Moore’s case, he’ll settle in behind top target Greg Olsen, a veteran in Smith, and a high-potential youngster in Funchess. He’ll even have a former MVP throwing him passes — though there’s a significant downgrade from 2014 Drew Brees to 2018 Newton.
Newton was in Bradenton, Florida for a 7-on-7 youth football camp when a kid asked him Hey Cam, can I get a fumble? and What happened in the Super Bowl? The Panthers QB wasn’t having it, choosing to get into it with the kid instead of brushing it off.
Don’t try that shit with me, little boy, Cam claps back before saying You’ll do what?! as he responds to a challenge, which can’t be heard on the video.
If you’re a Panthers fan: It’s nothing. He’s already fired up, which is awesome to see. This is just his competitive fire and I’m all about him be fired up before the season.
The snap was a little shaky, but the Rams still nailed the reveal on Father’s Day.
Fans could never forget Steratore after this season, when he made waves by using an index card to measure a first down for the Cowboys against the Raiders in Week 15. It was a Dak Prescott quarterback sneak on a crucial fourth-and-1 that was close — too close to call without a prop.
Steratore said after the game that he didn’t need the index card to make the first down call. He just used it to confirm that he had judged the position of the ball correctly.
Didn’t use the card to make the final decision, Steratore said, via Mac Engel of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The final decision was made visually. The card was used (as) nothing more than a reaffirmation of what was visually done.
After the game, the league asked officials to not use anything other than markers and the good old eye test to measure first downs. But what Steratore did was within the rules.
Steratore isn’t the only referee in his family. He isn’t even the only NFL official in his family.
The only rule is that I’m not allowed to kick it hard, Gano said in the Tweet.
He kicked it hard.
Judging by the distance on that ball and what I personally remember kickball being like in elementary school, Gano PROBABLY was holding back some. Those balls are easy to kick far. But also judging by Gano’s hilarious celebration (Home run baby!), he didn’t pull back nearly as much as he probably could have.
Bush’s primary claim was that the MCL injury he sustained hurt his future earning potential. He played one year with the Buffalo Bills the following season, and announced his retirement in 2017. Bush claimed throughout the process that the entire lawsuit was about player safety.
Did he have to go get the ball himself? Schoolyard rules say he should have.
Kickers are under-appreciated in the NFL, but it’s safe to say that Graham Gano’s family has a full understanding of his prowess when it comes to kicking sports balls far, and not just footballs.
In the more than three decades since, all but Memphis have welcomed an NFL franchise. Even Baltimore got its Colts replacement in 1996 when the Cleveland Browns became the Baltimore Ravens.
Memphis was an extreme long shot at landing the Colts from the start, and its chances weren’t much better again when it bid for an expansion team in 1993. The Oilers’ move from Houston to Nashville in 1997 — and subsequent rebrand as the Tennessee Titans — has since dulled talks of Memphis’ NFL dreams.
Los Angeles didn’t come close to getting the Colts either, with the Rams already in the city and the Raiders becoming the second tenant in 1982.
But Jacksonville and Phoenix were real candidates. What would the NFL look like today if the Colts didn’t relocate to Indianapolis?
In 1972, Robert Irsay purchased the Los Angeles Rams for $19 million and immediately gave the deed to the team to Carroll Rosenbloom, who traded away his ownership of the Baltimore Colts to Irsay.
Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is signed through the 2019 season, but he knows he isn’t certain to be in Denver that long.
There’s no more guaranteed money on Sanders’ contract, which led to some discussion early in the offseason about the team possibly moving on without him. They didn’t go that route, but did draft a pair of receivers and Sanders said no one knows what situation might play out over the next year.
I always play like that, like it’s always year-to-year, Sanders said, via Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic. I got something to prove this year and if I don’t prove it to the Broncos, then I’ll be proving it to some other team. But at the end of the day, God willing, I stay healthy, I’ll be in the NFL next year as well. That’s the goal. I don’t worry about what team. I’m working for the Denver Broncos this year and I’m going to do my best to try to bring a Super Bowl to this city.
Kershaw pitched a 1-2-3 first inning, then worked around leadoff singles in the second and third. The red-hot Javier Baez led off the fourth with a double, then came around to score on a two-out RBI single by Addison Russell. In the fifth, Kershaw struck out Ian Happ looking with a 90-mph slider, struck out Kyle Schwarber swinging with a curveball in the dirt and retired opposing starter Jose Quintana on a weak comebacker.
For the most part, Kershaw said, there’s definitely some things to be encouraged with today.
Washington, Scandrick said on NFL Network, via the Dallas Morning News. I know Dez can still catch touchdowns. I know he can still be a great red zone threat, and I would love to play with him again.
Bryant’s fit in Washington was discussed following his release as Bryant said he’d like to play the Cowboys twice during the 2018 season, but the presence of Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Paul Richardson at receiver doesn’t make adding a receiver an obvious need for the team.
A report last month indicated that Bryant, who turned down an offer from the Ravens, is willing to wait until the start of training camp to find the perfect fit, a winning organization and a team willing to do a one-year, prove it deal.
With the market set to open Sunday, we sort the players available into four groups: best bets, smart gambles, boom or busts, and bad investments.
As the No. 1 goaltender, of course. But for how long?
In the great goalie carousel of 2018, Hutton was viewed as the top prize. That meant he likely wouldn’t consider anyone not offering a third year on the contract. But let’s remember: Hutton is a 32-year-old backup. He’s cycled through three organizations in the past six years. For the Sabres to expect for Hutton to suddenly transform into a true No. 1 is aspirational — at best.
Overall grade: C-plus
Congrats to the Sabres for getting the most coveted goalie available on the market this season. But the price and term both seem high for a 32-year-old who has never been able to cement himself as a No. 1.
Of course, the Sabres had the cap space to make it work, so why not go for it? This makes the team better, but not by much. The Hutton acquisition doesn’t elevate our season prognosis for the Sabres — still bottom-dwellers — so we can’t grade this signing higher.
Avila said Bosio made the comments recently, and they were brought to Avila’s attention Tuesday. Avila decided Wednesday to terminate Bosio’s contract after the team investigated the situation and spoke to all of the people involved.
Avila said that what Bosio said violated team policy and his contract, although the GM otherwise spoke highly of Bosio’s job performance.
He definitely was a good pitching coach, Avila said.
Tigers right-hander Alex Wilson said he and teammates heard rumors of what had happened.
We’re sorry to everyone that it affected, Wilson said. It’s not a good day here. It’s a sad day. But we’re going to move forward, and hopefully this brings us closer than we’ve ever been.
Bosio, a former major league pitcher, was in his first season as Detroit’s pitching coach after serving in the same role for six years with the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs didn’t renew Bosio’s contract after last season and hired Jim Hickey to replace him, reuniting manager Joe Maddon with his former pitching coach in Tampa Bay.
That’s tough, Maddon said when asked for his thoughts on Bosio’s dismissal. That’s potentially a career-ending situation.
The 55-year-old Bosio was 94-93 over an 11-season career, mostly as a starter, with Milwaukee and Seattle. The right-hander threw a no-hitter in 1993 for the Mariners against the Boston Red Sox.
Michael Beasley could have multiple options in free agency.
The 29-year-old forward, who spent last season with the Knicks, is drawing interest from the Trail Blazers, Hawks and Bucks, according to a report from the New York Post. New York also wants to re-sign Beasley, the report says.
Our client would have preferred Dallas. Heck, he told Jason Garrett as much late last season. And the state income tax hit in California versus Texas (where they don’t have one) is a tough pill to swallow. But the Chargers look like they have a potentially special situation with that defense, he likes Gus Bradley and it’s not as if he has to get used to Pacific time. So let’s talk deal.
Flowers, who came in hitting .248, left due to a right hamstring cramp, the team announced.
Kurt Suzuki replaced him behind the plate to start the bottom of the sixth.
LeBron James, Cavaliers: We’ll hear plenty about James for the next two weeks or so, and his decision will have more impact on the league than any other free agent’s choice. We’ll hear about Philadelphia, Houston and the like, but it probably will come down to the Lakers or a return to the Cavs.
Kevin Durant, Warriors: Durant averaged 26.4 points, was the Finals MVP again and has been told the team will pay him whatever they can, so clearly, the Warriors are intent on keeping him in town. He’s not going anywhere.
But situationally, third-year linebacker Yannick Ngakoue is much better as a pass-rusher than as a run defender at this point in his career.
Over the last two years, only two players in the NFL recorded both 13 sacks and five or fewer tackles at or behind the line of scrimmage on the ground: Ngakoue and Miami’s Cameron Wake. Ngakoue’s 20 sacks and five tackles at or behind the line look like a typo next to the likes of New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan, who has 33 tackles at or behind the line to go with his 20.5 sacks since 2016.
Ngakoue is one of the NFL’s last true pass-rushing specialists. If he can round out his game by the time his second contract comes around, he may be a $50 million-plus player.
Next year, under tackle Corey Liuget is slated to cost $9.5 million against the Los Angeles Chargers’ salary cap. This year, he will begin the season with a four-game suspension for PEDs. While most third-round picks don’t get an immediate shot to start in the NFL, especially in the trenches, Justin Jones of North Carolina State may win the Week 1 starting job and run away with it.
He had X-rays this afternoon, Yankees manager Aaron Judge said in his pre-game presser. Came back clean. A little more peace of mind.
Judge hurt himself in the first inning of Friday night’s 4-1 win over the Mets sliding into second base on a doubleplay groundball hit by Greg Bird, but he played all nine innings.
After the game, Bird said, It’s sore, (but) it’s not too bad right now.
Boone was worried initially.
I was concerned when it happened just seeing his reaction, the manager said. The fact that he was able to stay in the game and go up and hit in the cage and go through it…
Two weeks ago, former Cowboys defensive back Deion Sanders pleaded for Dallas to re-sign Bryant.
Following Sanders was former Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who pleaded for someone to sign Bryant, per the Dallas Morning News :
The greatest thing about Dez is he is a fierce competitor. I think he is now more driven and more competitive than he has ever been. We wish him nothing but the best.
Tony Romo, his former quarterback, is endorsing Bryant for future employment, based on comments he made on May 1st, per ESPN :
If I was talking to any of the GMs or coaches, I would tell them he’s not going to hurt the locker room in any possible way. He’s going to come out and he’ll be a great teammate when he gets there. I think he’ll have a couple options here soon.
Jason Witten, his former tight end, tried pumping up Bryant by speculating he would be a good fit for the Green Bay Packers.
Deveney is Rutgers’ third commitment of the day, following St. John Vianney (Holmdel, N.J.) offensive lineman C.J. Hanson and Worcester (Mass.) Academy safety Zukudo Igwenagu.
Rutgers’ new offense also had something do with his pick.
It was Coach (John) McNulty’s offense, he said. He always has one tight end, two tight ends or even three tight ends on the field. He also coached Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry and those are some good tight ends. And I hope he can develop me like those guys.
Could the most iconic franchise in North American sports be joining forces with the Worldwide Leader?
It’s possible, if the proposed Disney- Fox merger goes through as outlined.
Shareholders for the two companies have started receiving literature detailing the deal.
Disney and Fox stockholders will vote on the deal at special meetings on July 10.
