Quinton Jefferson signs exclusive rights tender with Seahawks

Defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson found out he’d be playing for the Seahawks or no one in 2018 once the Seahawks tendered him a contract as an exclusive rights free agent, so the only choice he had to make this offseason was whether he wants to continue playing in the NFL.

Jefferson’s made his choice. The NFL’s daily transaction report brings word that he’s signed his tender from Seattle.

Drury, who came to the Yankees in a trade at the start of spring training, said he isn’t scared of what the final prognosis will be concerning his migraine and vision problem. He’s energized by the fact that he is finally addressing this.

I’m excited because I want to get it figured out, he said. I’ve been playing ball like this, and I don’t want to feel like that’s the player I am.

Giants safety Landon Collins may end up missing much of the 2018 offseason as a result of the same injury that ended his 2017 season.

Collins’ broken arm isn’t healing as quickly as hoped and he might need another surgery to put a plate in his arm, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

That surgery would have a recovery time of six to eight weeks, which would mean Collins would miss the offseason but be ready in time for training camp.

The news comes as a surprise because Collins told reporters this week that he was 100 percent healthy and good to go. It now appears that he’s not ready to go, even if he should be well before the season starts.

Collins has started every game for all three years of his NFL career, with the exception of the final game last year after he broke his arm.

The pink colorway is simply dubbed the Gloria edition. Fewer than 100 pairs were made more than a decade ago for friends at the request of LeBron’s mom, Gloria James, making it one of the rarest sneakers of the season.

After months of speculation, general manager Dave Gettleman confirmed Thursday that the Giants have released Marshall with a failed physical designation.

The move will save the organization $5.1 million against the salary cap.

Signed to a two-year, $12 million deal last March, Marshall lasted just five games before an ankle injury sabotaged his 2017 season.

Following an Indian-summer career year at age 31 in 2015, Marshall’s play fell off a cliff in 2016, leading to his Jets release. He was even less effective in those handful of games with Eli Manning last year, hauling in just 18 passes for an anemic 154 yards (8.6 yards per reception) and zero touchdowns.

The one thing you can’t tell him is, ‘You can’t do that,’ because if you tell him that, then hell is coming with him, Chinander said. If anybody else had his numbers, if anybody else had the tape that he has, they’d be a first-round pick, no question. He’s just going to have to do it in the NFL like he’s done it everywhere else — he’s going to outwork everybody.

I told some NFL scouts, ‘If you let him in your building, you’re going to have a hell of a time getting him out of there.’ 

When Chinander’s comment was relayed to Griffin, he laughed over the phone and told The Post, He’s right.

Although Barkley’s reps would reportedly prefer Barkley slip past No. 1 overall and go No. 2 to the New York Giants, Barkley has no plans to force the Browns to pass on him.

Baskin added that Barkley has told friends he has visions of bringing a championship to Cleveland and becoming a beloved figure in much the same way LeBron James did by leading the Cavaliers to an NBA title.

Kim Miale, Barkley’s agent, later denied the report to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com in a statement:

I can say on behalf of our entire team that we would be thrilled for Saquon to go to whichever team drafts him. We know he will be a resounding success for any team fortunate enough to select him.

Sports Illustrated would release a statement to A.J. Perez of USA Today defending the report, SI continues to stand by its reporting and story in the current issue.

Barkley is widely viewed as the best all-around prospect in the 2018 NFL draft, but his reps may not have to worry much about him going No. 1 overall.

The NFL and ESPN can’t control each otherand it’s getting ugly

One task on James Pitaro’s to-do list should get a big circle.

The newly named ESPN president must assume responsibility of the network’s longstanding relationship with the NFL, which has reached its nadir in recent months, according to a SportsBusiness Daily report, as negative NFL storylines have made their way into ESPN’s coverage. Pitaro, who took over last Monday after a search that began when John Skipper stepped down in December, has made it one of his top priorities to patch up the points of contention that materialized under Skipper’s leadership.

Day 1 of the free-agency negotiating period did not produce much news on free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins and where he might play in 2018. The Jets are one of the top suitors for Cousins, ready to break the bank for the 29-year-old, but they have competition from the Vikings and Cardinals.

Teams were permitted to contact Cousins’ agent Mike McCartney on Monday. He cannot sign anywhere officially until 4 p.m. Wednesday. Cousins surely was sifting through the offers from teams Monday, trying to figure out what his first choice would be. He is the biggest quarterback domino that the NFL is waiting to fall. Once he indicates where he likely is heading, other quarterbacks such A.J. McCarron and Teddy Bridgewater can start finding homes. Case Keenum, who had a career year for the Vikings, reportedly intends to sign with the Broncos.

Make no mistake, the Giants had serious interest in Norwell and not getting him is a setback. They knew the price would be steep and when it exceeded the value the Giants placed on Norwell, new general manager Dave Gettleman did not raise the ante and assign a greater value to the player.

Gettleman, the Giants’ first-year general manager, ran the show for the Panthers when he signed Nowell as an undrafted free agent in 2014, but that connection did not overcome the pursuit of Norwell by the Jaguars and Tom Coughlin.

The Giants now must look elsewhere, for less-accomplished players who will cost less money. Their great need is to find a starting-caliber offensive tackle, but the pickings are slim in free agency. The best of the bunch is Nate Solder, a mainstay at left tackle for the Patriots, but he is coming off a down year and would be costly. Cameron Fleming, a backup tackle in New England, started 20 games in his four years with the Patriots and could be the type of under-the-radar player Gettleman prefers to uncover as one of his hog mollies for the offensive line. Fleming is 25 years old.

Inside DRC’s move to safety with ex-Giant who knows best

He understands the logic, believes it can work but, if he had a voice in the decision, Antrel Rolle would not move his friend Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from cornerback to safety.

I think DRC can do whatever he wants to do,” Rolle, the former Giants safety, told The Post on Monday. I think he’s gonna buy into it. I personally like DRC better at corner. In my opinion he can be one of the better cornerbacks in the league, without a doubt. Can he make the transition to safety? There’s no doubt about it he can.”

It is a big and bold move the Giants are attempting. Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, is entering the fifth and final year of the $35 million contract he signed in 2014 and there was plenty of speculation he might not survive the front office and coaching regime change.

DRC’s been somewhat making a transition, him playing the nickel slot will also further his intellect as far as understanding the entire defense, because now he will be asked to understand what the linebackers are doing, what the defensive linemen are doing, their stunts, their gaps. It’s a lot more cerebral than being out there on a corner island.”

Rolle knows what he is talking about. He was a first-round pick out of Miami as a cornerback and after three years with the Cardinals he was moved to safety, a position he manned for five for the Giants, winning a Super Bowl, before spending his final season with the Bears in 2015.

The Penn State running back put on a show at the Combine and planted himself firmly in the discussion to be drafted No. 1 overall in April. He would be the first running back to go No. 1 overall since the Bengals picked fellow Nittany Lion Ki-Jana Carter in 1995.

The 5-foot-11, 233-pound Barkley — who could be an option for the Giants at No. 2 if the Browns pass with the top pick — ran the 40 in 4.40 seconds, racked up 29 reps at 225 pounds in the bench press and leaped 41 inches in the vertical jump.

Those marks rank right up there with some of the NFL’s best. Barkley benched more than Joe Thomas, ran faster than Devin Hester and jumped higher than Julio Jones.

Barkley ran for nearly 4,000 yards and scored 51 touchdowns from scrimmage over three seasons at Penn State

Jerry Jones: Eagles’ championship puts pressure on the Cowboys

The Eagles did in 2017 what the Cowboys couldn’t do as the NFC’s top seed in 2016: They won it all.

Dallas went 13-3 in 2016, but home-field advantage didn’t help as the Cowboys lost to the Packers in the divisional round. The Eagles’ ability to finish puts more pressure on the Cowboys.

I think it raises the bar. I think it puts pressure on the Cowboys, Jones said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. They’ve took it down to the bone and brought it back up and have a world championship, and we’ve been doing the same thing. Where is ours? That’s fair. That’s fair.

That probably isn’t going to change between now and the start of the new league year on March 14.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said last week that he would hope not to be starting a rookie at quarterback in 2018 and Peter King of SI.com reports that Jackson’s preference for a starter is McCarron. Per King, the team would also like to select a quarterback in the draft under that scenario and groom him behind McCarron.

One need only look at Mike Glennon’s experience in Chicago to see that such an arrangement offers little security for the veteran half of such a tandem, but it seems unlikely that McCarron will find a team that wants to sign him and isn’t also planning to take a young quarterback in this year’s draft. Given that, playing for Jackson who was once McCarron’s offensive coordinator in Cincinnati might be the preference for McCarron as well.

Yes, absolutely, Veach said. This was a football decision. Again, dialogue that Coach and I had. This wasn’t just one game, wasn’t a month, this was three years of body of work, and we look for consistency. We felt that this was in the best interest of the team. When you process all the information, they’re tough decisions but what you do is you just go. There’s no second guessing. You make a decision you believe in, you have foundations and core philosophies that you believe that yield success. You take all the information and then you go in that direction and you don’t look back.

Veach also was asked whether Peters’ eligibility for an extension was a factor.

You think of everything, Peters said. You think of games, practices, certainly cap. We’re all aware that he was one year, [$]1.7 [million and] an option of [$]9 [million]. That’s two years, [$]10.7 [million], potential of a franchise tag. All those factors. I think the moves that we’ve made over the last year shows that we’re very cap conscious and we know what we want to do in regards to building a roster and maintain flexibility throughout the course of a year, two years, three years. I think everything we do isn’t done for just one year. Even the deals we’ve done I think if you really look into the structure, everything provides flexibility. Every factor is taken into consideration.

Stars’ Radulov returns to Montreal

The Canadiens, who are without top defenseman Shea Weber (out for the season after foot surgery), captain Max Pacioretty (knee) and goaltender Carey Price (concussion), have lost five games in a row (0-3-2).

Just 2 1/2 weeks after being acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings — and one night after being worked over in a 5-2 loss at Colorado — the goalkeeper earned his 11th career shutout with a 1-0 victory over Vancouver on Sunday night, his and Arizona’s second win over the Canucks in four days.

The Sharks made it 3-1 early in the second when Labanc poked in a rebound after Howard stopped Tierney on a breakaway.

“We’ve played I don’t know how many games in about eight days or 10 days, but it’s a lot of games it seems like,” coach Mike D’Antoni said. “And to have the legs to be able to do what they’re doing and put the game away is pretty good.”

The Spurs, who were without leading scorer LaMarcus Aldridge, got 14 points each from Bryn Forbes and Derrick White. They lost for the fifth time in six games as they fight for a playoff spot.

The Coyotes kept their recent surge going as defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored the game-winning goal Sunday at 15:07 of the second period, his 10th goal of the season. His 27 game-winning goals since he broke into the NHL in 2010-11 are the most among NHL defensemen during that time.

“I’d rather be battling for a playoff spot than scoring goals,” Ekman-Larsson said. “At the same time, it means I’m doing something good out there. I’ve been getting some good looks lately and it’s nice to see them go in.”

Kuemper, acquired from the Kings last month, seems to be getting a good look at opposing pucks these days. He’s started the last four Coyotes games due to starter Antti Raanta’s lower-body injury. He gave up only one goal in the two Coyotes victories against Vancouver, though he was also in net for a 5-2 loss at Colorado on Saturday.

“Every start, I feel more and more comfortable with the team,” said Kuemper, who Cheap Custom NFL Jerseys was 10-1-3 with Los Angeles before the Kings traded him.

If Raanta can’t go again Tuesday night, Kuemper could oppose Jack Campbell Cheap Bruins Jerseys, who replaced him as Quick’s backup.

White Sox prospect Luis Robert out 10 weeks with thumb injury

Chicago White Sox outfield prospect Luis Robert is expected to miss approximately 10 weeks because of a sprained ligament in his left thumb.

The White Sox announced Saturday that Robert, 20, will have his hand immobilized for six weeks. The Cuban-born center fielder suffered the injury while sliding into second base Wednesday during Chicago’s spring training game against Cincinnati.

Oklahoma City led 46-40 at halftime. George had 14 points and Anthony 13. Temple’s tip-in in the closing seconds of the third quarter gave Sacramento a 79-78 lead.

The Thunder led 88-85 in the fourth quarter when Westbrook checked back in after a brief rest. He got his 10th assist on a pass to Jerami Grant for a layup and his 10th rebound with just over 3 minutes to play. Westbrook’s lob to Grant for a dunk put the Thunder up 102-92 with just under 3 minutes to play.

Sacramento cut its deficit to 104-101 on a pair of free throws by Bogdanovic with 23 seconds left, but Oklahoma City’s Corey Brewer made two free throws with 17 seconds left to put it out of reach.

Throughout the season, the Spurs have used 23 different starting lineups with players sitting out a combined 182 games. In fact, San Antonio has had 15 players lead the team in scoring this season (outright or tied), which qualifies as the most in the NBA, according to research from ESPN Stats & Information. The Spurs have had literally only one game with their entire roster available.

Still, the Spurs remain undaunted in the face of the current circumstances.

“Everybody tries to be the best they can be by playoff time,” Popovich said. “That’ll Cheap Baseball Jerseys China be our goal, too — to be in the playoffs and be as good as we can possibly be no Cheap Authentic Jerseys matter what the circumstances are.”

Zuccarello added an empty-netter at 17:23 for his 14th of the season and the 100th of his career, and Vesey capped his hat trick with an empty-netter in the final minute for his 15th goal this season.

Preds beat Stars 2-0 for franchise-record 9th straight win

The Nashville Predators talk about everything and shy away from nothing.

Right now, they have an awful lot to discuss.

Pekka Rinne stopped 26 shots, Ryan Hartman scored at 5:33 of the third period and the Predators beat the Dallas Stars 2-0 Tuesday night for their franchise-record ninth straight victory.

The Predators extended the NHL’s longest active winning streak. The defending Western Conference champs also lead both the conference and the Central Division by six points, and Nashville topped last season’s point total of 94 with 16 games left.

Sheary gave the Penguins a 3-2 lead with his first of the night, finishing a 2-on-1 break with Crosby with 5:35 remaining in the period. Mrazek made a good pad save on Crosby’s initial shot. But the rebound went right to Sheary, who backhanded it in for his 13th of the season.

Sheary’s second goal from a sharp angle with 49.3 seconds left in the period put Pittsburgh ahead by two goals. Guentzel’s shot from the high slot deflected off Flyers defenseman Brandon Manning to a wide-open Sheary to the right of the net, and Mrazek couldn’t recover in time. Crosby got a secondary assist on the goal, his third of the night.

Kessel, playing in his 900th NHL game, opened the scoring with 1:25 left in the first period on the power play on assists from Malkin and Crosby. Malkin set the goal up with a perfect pass across the crease, and Kessel converted the easy finish with a forehand shot for his 28th goal.

Swiss No. 1 pick Nico Hischier and the Devils will wrap up training camp in Europe and tune up against SC Bern in Switzerland on Oct. 1. Homegrown star Leon Draisaitl and the Oilers will face Kolner Haie in Cologne on Oct. 3, Germany Unity Day.

The games at Helsinki’s Hartwall Arena showcase two Finnish stars: Jets winger Patrik Laine and Panthers center Aleksander Barkov.

In addition to the games in Europe, the NHL is expected to again play exhibition games in China after going there with the Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks last year.

That sounds nice in theory. Position the franchise in the same way as the Celtics by competing Cheap Baseball Jerseys Kids now and building for later. But things are going to get worse before they get better, and the trade deadline sale might not be over. That cannot be what head coach Doc Rivers wants to Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China hear.

Jared Goff, Thomas Davis, Jason Witten among Pro Bowl replacements

As you can see, Jaguars safety Tashaun Gipson (No. 39) was in the middle of two Patriots players, so the official comes over to break them up before anything happens. Patriots offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (No. 71) appears to say something along the lines of I wasn’t talking trash, so the official didn’t throw a flag on him.

The officials did play a big role in the game, though. The Jaguars received six penalties for 98 yards while the Patriots escaped without a penalty on offense or defense. We’re not saying there was anything nefarious going on, but the Jacksonville players definitely took notice.

The good news for him is the Birds are going to the big game in Minneapolis against the Patriots. They routed the Vikings 38-7 in the NFC championship game.

The day I signed, I get a call from the owner — and they don’t have to do that. That’s really cool. And from the top down, that trickles down, just the attitude and the character, and just the culture they have around here is awesome.

Winning makes any culture better than most, especially for a career backup who becomes the one leading the surge of success. There’s no guarantee, even with Keenum’s 2017 — 325-of-481 passing, 3,546 yards, 22 touchdowns, seven interceptions — the quarterback is even wanted back in Minnesota, especially after Sunday’s disaster.

The Eagles last appeared in the conference title game following the 2008 season, when they lost to Kurt Warner’s Cardinals. The Vikings are in the playoffs for just the third time since Brett Favre led them to the NFC championship game in 2009.

If there’s one thing Bill Belichick and his Patriots coaching staff do better than any other team, it’s putting together a solid game plan. Jacksonville’s 45-42 victory in Pittsburgh was certainly an eye opener.

Tion Green hopes to emerge as Lions reshape backfield

The Lions are in need of backfield help, that much was obvious this season as they just missed out on the playoffs.

Former second-round pick Ameer Abdullah hasn’t developed into an every-down back and the team could look to move on this offseason. Third-down back Theo Riddick is among the best pass catchers out of the backfield in the NFL, but he struggles between the tackles.

Going into this year, I just want no excuses. I want to show guys that I’m trustworthy. That on third-and-1, fourth-and-goal, goal line or whatever the case may be, first down, second down, third down, that they can leave me out there.

The Lions looked elite at times this season, while other games left something to be desired either offensively or defensively. One thing that never looked right was the run game. Some of that can be attributed to the myriad of injuries suffered across the offensive line, but the Lions need a quality starting running back in order to reach their full potential.

I was really surprised that it lasted that long, the older brother of Raiders quarterback Derek Carr told San Francisco’s 95.7 The Game on Monday. They had some success two years ago, so I think that really helped. But their defense had been struggling for the last couple years. He was brought in to fix that. And I think what Derek and what the offense probably bought that staff and bought those guys a little bit of time.

Derek Carr had a great season for the Raiders in 2016, but the team regressed the next year and it was clear his development was at a crossroads. He needed someone to take him to the next level and Oakland decided new head coach Jon Gruden was its man.

Oakland’s 23rd-ranked defense made the decision even easier.
