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.

Galloway looked for a special edition for the occasion, breaking out a rare white-and-pink colorway of James’ debut Nike shoe, the Air Zoom Generation, originally made in 2004. 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

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.

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.

Tony Romo insists he’s retired for good

Tony Romo can’t avoid the question of whether or not we’ll ever see him on the playing field again yet he insists any future playcalling will be coming from the broadcast booth only.

Romo appeared on NFL Total Access Wednesday where he jokingly said he would give it one last chance. Oh yeah, probably a good chance. We’ll see how it plays out. I think you’ll find I’m joking, Romo said while laughing. Like I said before, I’m done.

The veteran cornerback has not missed a single game in his career and is coming off a year in which he graded very highly by most advanced metrics, despite just one interception and seven passes defensed. His release from the Buccaneers had more to do with his salary and the progression of rookie cornerback Vernon Hargreaves than it did Verner’s level of play.

Over his seven-year career, Verner has tallied 15 interceptions, 70 passes defensed, five forced fumbles, and a defensive touchdown. While he’s never been the prototypical shutdown cornerback, Verner has been a reliable cover man despite having played under four different head coaches in a variety of different defensive schemes.

The Dolphins worked out Verner and Tony Carter just before training camp, according to the Sun-Sentinel’s Omar Kelly. Darrelle Revis reportedly reached out to the team to gauge its interest, and the team also considered veteran Brandon Flowers, per Kelly

During Verner’s time with the Tennessee Titans, he was a regular contributor to SB Nation’s team site Music City Miracles. Perhaps The Phinsider should give him a call.

Terrell Owens Actually Had Good Advice For Odell Beckham

Terrell Owens would probably be the last person New York Giants fans would want giving advice to Odell Beckham Jr. Appearing on Adam Schefter’s ESPN podcast, though, Owens said he reached out to Beckham when the wide receiver was struggling early in 2016.

Owens, a great player who bounced from team to team and most likely had his career end before it should have because of his propensity for finding controversy actually had good advice for Beckham.

The discipline is stronger than NFL policy that sets a baseline suspension of one game for a player’s first DUI charge. The big question was whether mitigating circumstances would force the league to come down even harder, which they did. Floyd’s 0.217 blood-alcohol level surpassed regular intoxication levels and earned the extreme label that carries harsher legal penalties. He spent three weeks in jail for it this offseason.

However, while Floyd’s DUI was his first since joining the NFL, the 2016 arrest wasn’t his first drunk driving charge. He was suspended indefinitely by Notre Dame in 2011 for driving with a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit. His suspension was lifted in August 2011, and the Cardinals selected him in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft.

Minnesota signed Floyd to give the team some extra depth at receiver. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen emerged as legitimate scoring threats last fall, each gaining more than 900 receiving yards and helping Sam Bradford regain his value as a starting quarterback. Floyd will battle second-year player Laquon Treadwell for the team’s No. 3 wideout role. But now that he’s going to miss the first month of the season, that’s going to become a much more difficult task.
