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] […]
The 49ers announced the signings of two more undrafted free agents.
San Francisco came to terms on three-year deals with Washington offensive lineman Coleman Shelton and North Texas running back Jeff Wilson.
Altogether, well over 1,000 moves were made during the first half of the 2018 NFL offseason.
It’s mostly quiet now. A time to reflect. And judge, of course.
Here are 25 trades, signings, hirings and draft decisions from 20 different teams that will go down as the best moves of the 2018 offseason.
There are no guarantees in the draft, even at the top. No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield could turn into Peyton Manning or JaMarcus Russell, Cam Newton or David Carr, John Elway or Tim Couch. Let’s not pretend we know how his career will pan out.
Although Richmond is far from a football factory, he was a very productive passer as a three-year starter in the Colonial Athletic Association. He’s the kind of developmental prospect the Giants will hope can blossom while backing up Manning.
The Giants seem likely to keep two young quarterbacks, Lauletta and Davis Webb, behind Manning. They’ll hope to see one of them develop into Manning’s successor.
After all, the Honey Badger is just two years removed from a five-interception season in which he recorded 17 passes defensed and was named a first-team All-Pro. He can cover the slot or play either safety position, and he should have a chance to play multiple roles in a Houston secondary that needs him.
Sometimes, you just have to be in the right place at the right time. And when you’re in that place at that time, you have to avoid overthinking. That’s what gets the Los Angeles Chargers on this list.
Eagles executive V.P. of football operations Howie Roseman is right; no altercation happened between the Eagles and running back Derrius Guice during his visit to Philadelphia. It happened in another city in another state.
Per a league source, the incident (reportedly a shouting match) happened at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
Davis and Kristan Ann Ware, a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader, recently filed gender-discrimination complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against the Saints, the Dolphins and the NFL.
With their legal action, the NFL cheerleading industry, which to this point has operated outside the realm of the #MeToo movement, is now forced to recognize and confront its unfair treatment of the women it employs.
Geragos also represents Kaepernick.
Reid has had just one free-agent visit, a fruitless meeting with the Bengals last month. Kaepernick almost had a meeting — the Seahawks postponed a planned workout to find out more about Kaep’s position on the national anthem, his collusion lawsuit and his other stances against social injustice.
Are there any teams willing to give Kaepernick or Reid — both very capable NFL talents — a chance to continue their careers?
The result was her very first six-pack, a tangible sign of her discipline.
She hoped that six-pack would help her make the cut—her own month on the calendar.
Davis arrived at New Orleans’ Royal Sonesta Hotel with her teammates, all dressed in black cocktail dresses for the formal event.
They greeted team sponsors and Saints employees, but mostly they whispered about who might get a month this year.
One of the most bizarre stories that came out after the NFL Draft came last week when Browns executive Alonzo Highsmith was asked about the top quarterbacks in the draft.
During an interview with the Canton Repository, Highsmith had some very reasonable explanations for why he liked certain quarterbacks and why he didn’t really care for a few other ones. For instance, Highsmith was high on Baker Mayfield because the former Oklahoma quarterback lost two receivers in 2017 and was still productive. That makes sense.
Well, for one, we now know that Highsmith didn’t take the volleyball coach’s advice and speak to Rosen’s girlfriend. During an interview on The Rich Eisen Show this week, Rosen revealed a twist to the story: Highsmith didn’t try to get a single detail about Rosen from the quarterback’s significant other.
I thought it was interesting that he didn’t talk to my girlfriend, Rosen said. Maybe he was scared of someone actually saying something good about me? I don’t know, I thought it was funny.
Also, Rosen was just as befuddled as everyone else by the entire situation.
I will not talk about him after this interview, OK? Bradshaw said in the NFL Network’s A Football Life: Chuck Noll documentary. Did I respect him? Of course I did. Like him? No, I didn’t like him.
One of the best quotes that applies to Brady-Belichick actually comes from a Cowboys player in the 1970s who was asked to describe the relationship between Tom Landry and Roger Staubach. Landry was a stone-faced Belichick before Belichick.
Tom punches the computer, calls the play, does everything but hand the ball off, said guard John Niland in 1978. And Roger is a great lieutenant.
In this case, Belichick is the computer, and Brady is the lieutenant. They are the best duo in NFL history.
And it doesn’t matter if they don’t always get along.
By Saturday, the officials said, Haspel had agreed to continue with her nomination.
Report: NFL May Allow Individual Teams to Decide Policy on Anthem Protests More The NFL is now considering allowing individual teams to make their own decisions on this policy, according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post .
Although the league has said that players can protest during the anthem, many teams and owners have expressed their displeasure with their players’ form of social justice. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, one of many owners against the protests, said in October there was no question the league is suffering negative effects from these protests. He also said any player who disrespects the flag would be benched. The league has also discussed allowing players to stay in the locker room or keeping all the players in the locker room until after the anthem.
It’s just one of multiple changes to NFL broadcasting we’re going to see this upcoming season. In the NFL as an assistant for the better part of the past three decades, Arians finally earned a full-time head coaching job with the Arizona Cardinals back in 2013.
He would ultimately go on to lead the team to two playoff appearances in five seasons before retiring.
A second-round pick in 2011, Franklin was an instrumental tackle for one of the game’s greatest offenses the Peyton Manning-led Broncos from 2012 through 2014.
It’s tough to gauge what Belichick and Brady’s relationship is now, though I figure anyone who has been attached to another person for 20 or so years is going to have their moments when they’re sick of the other’s stupid face. Belichick hasn’t said anything about it publicly, though apparently President Trump has chatted with him about it. If Belichick did say something, it would probably be some variation of, It is what it is.’’
Brady’s perspective is more compelling, because he’s let us in on what it is to some degree. He spilled some unexpected weariness and candor in the final episode of Tom vs. Time, with his wife Gisele saying he would like to be more appreciated and have more fun at work.
The Steelers put Shazier on injured reserve, officially ending his season.
From the outside, it is difficult to assess how much cash the Trump Organization has on hand.
Eric Trump, a son of the president who helps manage the company, told The Washington Post that none of the cash used to purchase the 14 properties came from outside investors or from selling off major Trump Organization assets.
“First time I put a helmet and pads on was Grade 9 and I didn’t know anything about the game or the rules, so when I did start watching football it was 2009, the same year that T.J. Lang got drafted,” Shepley said. “I just remember looking up offensive lines and it was always Green Bay’s.
“I identified with T.J. Just from a body-type standpoint, we were kind of the same. And as it turns out this past combine training, with the gym I’ve been going through, I was training with T.J., who was a regular there. From two days a week of punching the bag, no pads, no cleats, you learn a lot based off technique. I’m a visual learner, so seeing him work was pretty huge for me.”
Another NFL lineman who was a huge inspiration for Shepley was countryman Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff.
Duvernay-Tardiff played college football at McGill college in Quebec and was a 2014 sixth-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs. He has started as the team’s right guard in 31 games since then and inked a five-year, $42.5 million deal with the team in 2017.
Alas, there’s a sticking point: According to the Daily Mail, the stadium-owning Football Association agreed not to sell Wembley for 50 years after receiving millions from the British government to finance construction of the new stadium, which was completed in 2007. So Khan would have to wait until 2057 to buy it, and he’s 67 years old now, and you do the math.
In essence, the Daily Mail explains, the clause was put into the contract to prevent the FA from scoring a windfall from the sale of a stadium partially financed with public money. It also prevents the FA from selling a minority share of the stadium without government approval until this year and limits the size of any minority share to 15 percent until 2022.
The Daily Mail says Khan was aware of the protections. Along with the Jaguars, he has owned Premier League club Fulham since 2013.
What could have been: Instead of hanging on to Anderson, Mangini brought in veteran Jake Delhomme and drafted Colt McCoy in the third round before his second season with the Browns.
Does it matter? Not really. Delhomme and McCoy combined for 8 TDs and 16 interceptions in a 5-11 season. The three quarterbacks drafted ahead of McCoy were Sam Bradford, Tim Tebow and Jimmy Clausen. Mangini was gone after the 2010 season.
The 49ers didn’t draft a pass-rusher, which inspires the question: Could they bring back their most effective pass-rusher from 2017?
In March, general manager John Lynch acknowledged Elvis Dumervil could return after the 49ers didn’t pick up the option on the second year of his contract.
Should the Broncos stay put and not trade down, they need to take the best player available who can help them now. Moving on from both Anderson and Talib leaves the biggest void for immediate impact at their positions.
Should the Giants, Jets and Browns pass on Barkley, he’s a no-brainer for the Broncos. At worst, Ward is all but guaranteed to not be picked in the top four. Elway might not want to sit still, but it could work out well.
Overview: The Worldwide Leader in Sports was the sole network showing the draft for decades. Its hope is that viewers believe ESPN is still the best as rival Fox Sports gets its nose under the tent for the first time. ESPN will televise all seven rounds. Sister Disney network ABC will simulcast ESPN’s coverage of rounds 4-7 on Saturday.
Key players: Trey Wingo will serve as main host for the second straight year, following in the footsteps of Chris Berman, the face of ESPN’s draft coverage for 37 years. Joining Wingo will be draft guru Mel Kiper Jr., front office insider Louis Riddick and “College GameDay” analyst Kirk Herbstreit. Kiper is the “GOAT” of draft gurus, according to Seth Markman, ESPN’s NFL czar. The telecast wouldn’t be the same without him.
Other key contributors: NFL Insiders Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen, analyst Todd McShay and host Suzy Kolber.
As for those top non-QBs from which the Giants could choose in Round 1, the running back vs. defensive end debate is interesting.
Cowboys tight end Jason Witten announced his retirement on Thursday, and plenty of stories about him referred to him as a future Hall of Famer. He may be, but no one should pencil him in for the class of 2023, which is his first year of eligibility.
Evans not only would provide a third ‘Bama option, but he also carries a little more position versatility than Edmunds and Smith do. He also would come with a little less cost if Dallas needs to trade up to get him. With linebacker being the team’s most glaring need for 2018, it’s not crazy for Jones to be aggressive in finding a special player for the position.
The best argument for a defensive tackle in Round 1 is the fact that the values in Rounds 2 and 3 are not as desirable. In contrast, with pick Nos. 50 and No. 81, there are solid Cowboys-type wide receivers to target in LSU’s D.J. Chark and Washington’s Dante Pettis. At linebacker, Ohio State’s Jerome Baker and Iowa’s Josey Jewell present appeal for Dallas’ scheme.
The Jets drafted Herndon in Round 4. Of their six draft picks, he probably has the best chance of starting in Week 1, since he is competing against Jordan Leggett, who missed his entire rookie season last year with a knee injury.
But when will Herndon be able to fully participate in practice?
Depending on how he feels, it’ll be week by week, Jets coach Todd Bowles said. We’ll take it slow with him. We’re trying to get him ready for training camp. If he’s ready earlier, then he’ll play earlier.
Don’t expect Herndon to be a full participant this weekend at rookie minicamp. When the Jets drafted him last week, general manager Mike Maccagnan said Herndon was about four to six weeks away from being able to fully participate in practice.
Left guard: The Cowboys have locked up center Travis Frederick with a lucrative long-term deal, and they soon will have to do the same for right guard Zack Martin. But now that the team has signed former Patriots standout Cameron Fleming to start at right tackle, the interior status of La’el Collins, signed through only 2019, is iffy. Don’t be surprised if Dallas lands an immediate starter between Frederick and left tackle Tyron Smith.
Again, though, does he win? And shouldn’t it matter how his teammates see him, since they’ll be the ones spending every day with him in-season?
Former teammates we spoke with who asked not to be named said it might have taken a while to warm up to Rosen, but by the end of this last year, we loved the guy.
And that matches with what one senior-level executive for an NFC team told me.
Should we judge a man by how he acted as an 18-year-old? Is that predictive of how he’ll be in the pros? Perhaps…if the same characteristics persist in his game.
At the end of the day, your teammates will like you if you win, one scout said. Period.
Philip, he’s still playing like a young man , Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said, per Chargers .com. This is going to be his squad. If we bring in another quarterback, it’s definitely a guy we feel like can sit for a couple of years and play behind Philip and learn, and maybe be the future.
Yes, Lynn also gave the obligatory mention of the backups on the roster — Cardale Jones and Geno Smith — adding I wouldn’t look past those two right now. Eventually, though, a replacement must arrive for Rivers, whether its Jones, Smith or a draft pick. Rivers knows this, but he’s also not conceding his job anytime soon.
I’m on the board of New Jersey-based Write on Sports , which promotes writing, critical thinking and self-esteem in mostly at-risk middle-school students. The students are encouraged to become better writers by interviewing athletes and sports media people and writing stories about sports (which theoretically would interest them more than some other topics) in both after-school programs and in 11 summer camps.
The Devils signed forward prospect Joey Anderson to a three-year entry level contract on Sunday.
The 19-year-old Anderson is in New Jersey and will join the NHL team on Monday. The first year of Anderson’s contract will count toward the 2017-18 season, so he will have two years left on his deal starting next season.
Anderson is eligible to play in the postseason with the Devils, who play Game 3 of their first-round series against the Tampa Bay Lightning at 7:30 p.m. on Monday at Prudential Center.
When Anderson played with the U.S. National Development Team prior to being drafted, he shared a line with Clayton Keller and Kieffer Bellows — two players taken in the first round of the 2016 Draft before Anderson. Keller just finished his first NHL season, and his play earned him consideration for the Calder Trophy.
When those three played together, Anderson showed the ability to play with high-quality skill and speed, and it was one of the appealing things to the Devils about getting him in the middle of the Draft. Now the Devils will see if he can make an impact at the NHL level.
Anderson possesses the speed and offensive ability that could help make the Devils a deeper, more dangerous team, if he shows he is NHL-ready. The Devils have used several left-handed shots on their opposite side during the 2017-18 season, so Anderson would add another righty to line up on that side down the line.
Dak, who was thrust unexpectedly into the starting lineup as a rookie and who built confidence with a great running game and an offensive line that allowed him to work through his progressions until a receiver was clearly open, possibly never developed the comfort level during two NFL seasons to consistently throw what looked like a 50-50 ball, but that may have had a higher chance of success.
The Panthers also have an immediate need at cornerback following the Daryl Worley trade and the Bashaud Breeland free-agency fail. But Wynn and/or UTEP’s Will Hernandez need to be play with this pick as potential replacements for left guard Andrew Norwell, who left for the Jaguars. Wynn is the better overall prospect.
Jones has long championed Bryant and went out of his way to support him this offseason, but team executive VP Stephen Jones — in a crafty bit of father-and-son good cop/bad cop — emphasized in February that keeping Bryant around at his current cost would be “a tough one.”
In many ways, the Cowboys have made it clear this was a possibility, but it remains a stunning move for fans to digest. Bryant has been the lively, volatile, loyal beating heart of the Dallas offense since the start of the decade.
The Timberwolves, who won despite 12 lead changes, blew a nine-point lead the final minute of regulation last Saturday’s overtime home loss to. Both players have options free agency.Hartline seems bitter that Pryor is having some degree of success after just now switching from QB, something Hartline did high school.-‘s World Baseball participation is more difficult for the Twins than they initially believed.
Appeared seven playoff as the Indians advanced to the SHL semifinals before falling to Vaxjo.But its association with the progression of ALS inspired us to increase our efforts this field the past years.We did some walk-throughs, got some reps there and went against the defense warm-ups.
Dallas is sitting on 10 total draft selections as they try to rebound from a 9-7 season that kept them short of a return to the NFC playoffs. Although they are not too desperate at any one position, the Cowboys need to keep getting a jump on the eventual changes tied to age and expiring contracts.
We take a deep dive into what Jerry Jones and Dallas will and should be thinking come NFL Draft weekend.
Wide receiver: Dez Bryant, who turns 30 in November and has seen his play fade, was cut. Terrance Williams, a shaky No. 2, anyway, turns 39 in September and is coming off a broken right foot. With Cole Beasley, Ryan Switzer and newcomer Allen Hurns, the Cowboys have plenty of options in the slot, so the focus should be on a big-target replacement for Bryant and a big-play upgrade from Williams on the outside.
