Le’Veon Bell backs Jamal Adams’ contract demands; says Jets shouldn’t trade Adams

New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell had a “great talk” with disgruntled teammate Jamal Adams on Thursday, and he came away with the impression the All-Pro safety wants to remain in New York — if he gets a new contract.

“I think he wants to be [with the Jets], I just think he wants to get paid,” Bell said Friday in an interview with Peter Rosenberg on Hot 97 radio in New York. “I think he’s in the same situation I was three years ago. He’s a young player. He’s been at the top of the game, playing at a high level and feels like, ‘Dang, I just want to get compensated.'”

Adams, upset by the lack of progress in contract talks, formally requested a trade last month. He submitted to the Jets a list of seven preferred destinations, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported. In the meantime, Adams has criticized the team on social media, also saying he’s “trying to” orchestrate a trade to the Dallas Cowboys.

He has two years remaining on his rookie contract and is making $3.6 million this season and $9.9 million in 2021 via the fifth-year option. Adams is believed to be seeking more than $15 million per year, which would make him the highest-paid safety.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

The Jets say they want to make Adams a “Jet for life,” but they haven’t put a timetable on a potential contract extension. Adams wants it before the start of the season.6

Bell doesn’t see Adams going anywhere.

“Me, personally, I hope he doesn’t get traded,” Bell said. “But I don’t think he’ll get traded. I do think he’ll be playing with the Jets. That’s just me, personally, because I don’t think he’s going to get traded. Honestly, why would you trade him? I wouldn’t trade him.”

General manager Joe Douglas hasn’t commented on Adams’ contract dispute since late April. Coach Adam Gase said recently that he wants Adams on the 2020 roster.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

In a wide-ranging interview, Bell also addressed his own disappointing performance last season. He rushed for a career-low 789 yards and averaged only 3.2 yards per carry, the lowest in franchise history for a back with at least 150 carries.

After sitting out the 2018 season in a contract dispute with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bell said he felt great physically in 2019, but he added, “That wasn’t the best me.”

“Everybody talked about the offensive line and everybody talked about me not getting the ball, but, damn, Le’Veon, were you at your best?” he said. “I can literally look at myself in the eye and say, ‘No. No, I wasn’t.'”

Bucs pass-rusher Shaq Barrett accepts franchise tender, files designation grievance

Buccaneers pass-rusher Shaq Barrett has notified the NFL that he has officially accepted his franchise tender, but he is filing a grievance with the NFLPA to be tagged as a defensive end and not a linebacker, agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Barrett, 27, registered a league-leading 19.5 sacks in his first season with the Bucs, playing on a one-year deal for $4 million.cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys

The franchise tag amount is calculated by taking the average of the top five players’ cap percentages for the current season, or 120% of the player’s previous salary — whichever is higher. If Barrett is tagged as a linebacker, he’d earn $15.8 million for 2020. If he is tagged as a defensive end, he’d earn $2 million more — $17.78 million — due to new contracts inked by DeMarcus Lawrence, Frank Clark, Trey Flowers, Yannick Ngakoue and Cam Jordan all last year.5

The NFL does not distinguish between inside and outside linebackers when determining franchise tag amounts, meaning it does not make a distinction between linebackers serving as pass-rushers — whose primary job is getting to the quarterback, and perceived to be higher value — and those dropping into coverage.

The highest-paid outside linebacker, Khalil Mack, signed a new deal with the Chicago Bears in 2018, and the second-highest paid outside linebacker, Von Miller, signed his current deal in 2016. The third and fourth highest-paid linebackers, Bobby Wagner and C.J. Mosley, did sign new deals in 2019, along with Za’Darius Smith, but multiple players — Barrett, Matt Judon and Bud Dupree — are still awaiting new contracts.nike jersey nfl cheap

The Bucs could try to argue that Barrett is more of a 3-4 outside linebacker given the number of snaps he plays standing up rushing the quarterback versus having his hand in the dirt. Or they could follow what the Baltimore Ravens did with Judon this offseason, by coming up with a compromise — $16.8 million — since Judon plays a hybrid linebacker/defensive end role. If Barrett and the Bucs cannot find a solution, a neutral arbitrator will make the call.

Ings double seals Southampton victory over struggling Watford

Watford were dealt a major blow in their bid to avoid relegation as a Danny Ings double and James Ward-Prowse’s stunning late free kick condemned them to a 3-1 defeat at home to Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

Saints started strongly and took a well-deserved lead in the 16th minute when Ings glided past the challenge of two Watford defenders before curling a low effort into the far corner.8

The striker added a second goal in the 70th minute after intercepting a wayward throw from goalkeeper Ben Foster before Jan Bednarek’s own goal handed the Hornets a lifeline.

But Ward-Prowse’s free kick in the 82nd minute sealed the victory for Southampton, who rose to 13th place with 40 points, while Watford remain in 16th with 28 points, one point ahead of third-bottom Bournemouth, who have a game in hand.cheap nfl jerseys from china nike

Solskjaer: Angel Gomes likely to leave Manchester United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he is expecting midfielder Angel Gomes to leave the club.

The United boss had been hopeful Gomes would sign a new contract but with no update on the situation and the 19-year-old’s deal due to expire on Tuesday, he now looks set to leave Old Trafford.

“I’ve got no news, nothing, so it doesn’t look like [he will stay],” Solskjaer told a news conference on Monday.

“I’ve not heard from them last night or this morning. It seems like they haven’t managed to agree so the answer is probably short and yes [he will leave].“cheap nfl jerseys from china nike

United travel to Brighton on Tuesday looking to extend their unbeaten run to 15 games and put more pressure on the top four places.7

With seven games remaining, Solskjaer’s team are sixth in the table, five points behind fourth-place Chelsea.

“I think there are many teams in that battle for third and fourth — Leicester, Chelsea, us, Wolves are doing really well, ” Solskjaer said.

“Tottenham, Arsenal and Sheffield United want to put a run together and put a challenge in there. It’s exciting for fans

“The players are working really hard and want to do as well as they can.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

“For me as a team we’re trying to implement our ideas. When you go into the next game knowing you’ve won the previous game it’s a good place to be in.”

Brighton are still in relegation trouble but have been in good form since the restart with a win over Arsenal and a draw at Leicester.

United have lost on both of their last two visits to the Amex Stadium and Solskjaer is expecting a tough game even without Brighton fans in the stadium.

“They’re a good footballing side, play football and make it hard for you,” he added.

“I’ve not been down there myself and fans, of course they matter and have an impact on games and football.

“We have to deal with the situation as it is and as an away team, sometimes it helps you but then again when you’re at the bottom pressure of fans can get to you and give an extra edge.”

Rays’ Wander Franco one of many top prospects picked for 60-man player pools

Top prospect Wander Franco is part of the Tampa Bay Rays’ 60-man player pool, and the Detroit Tigers are including their most heralded young pitchers as baseball gears up for its abbreviated season.

Sunday was the deadline for teams to submit player pools, although additions can be made later. Many teams announced pools well below the 60-player limit.

Franco, a 19-year-old shortstop, is ranked as the No. 1 prospect in baseball by MLB Pipeline. He spent last season at Class A, so it would be quite a jump for him to contribute in the majors in the immediate future, but putting him in the player pool makes him an option for the Rays — and could help his development in a year when the coronavirus shut down the minor leagues.

Pitcher Brendan McKay and infielder Vidal Brujan, two other top Tampa Bay prospects, also made the pool.nfl nike jersey cheap

“They are some of our more advanced prospects,” Rays general manager Erik Neander said. “Certainly on the position player side that’s where things went and why Wander was a leading candidate for a spot.”8

The Tigers are rebuilding around pitching prospects — including Casey Mize, the No. 1 pick in the 2018 draft. He’s in their player pool, along with Matt Manning, Tarik Skubal, Alex Faedo and Franklin Perez.new nike nfl jerseys cheap

A majority of teams took at least five catchers, and the defending champion Washington Nationals included a whopping 36 pitchers in their pool. The Baltimore Orioles announced only 44 players total at this time — not counting outfielder Trey Mancini, who was listed on the 45-day injured list and is likely to miss the season following colon cancer surgery in March.

The Nationals included infielder Ryan Zimmerman in their pool, although he said recently he was still deciding whether he would play.

The New York Yankees listed Miguel Andujar and Tyler Wade as infielders/outfielders, a sign they could see more outfield time if Aaron Judge (broken rib), Giancarlo Stanton (strained right calf) and Aaron Hicks (Tommy John surgery) aren’t sufficiently healed. New York put right-hander Luis Severino (Tommy John surgery) on the 45-day IL, agreed to minor league contracts with infielder Matt Duffy and catcher Max McDowell and released right-hander Dan Otero, then re-signed him to a minor league contract.

The Pittsburgh Pirates’ player pool was without reliever Edgar Santana, who will miss all of the 2020 season after being suspended 80 games for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. MLB announced Sunday that Santana tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

The Pirates did not include right-hander Quinn Priester or shortstop Nick Gonzales, their top draft picks from 2019 and 2020.

Kings’ Jabari Parker, Alex Len test positive for the coronavirus

Forward Jabari Parker and center Alex Len of the Sacramento Kings said Wednesday that they tested positive for the coronavirus.

“Several days ago I tested positive for COVID-19 and immediately self-isolated in Chicago which is where I remain,” Parker said in a statement released by the team. “I am progressing in my recovery and feeling well. I look forward to joining my teammates in Orlando as we return to the court for the resumption of the NBA season.”

In a story post on Instagram, Len said he was tested Tuesday in Sacramento, California.7

“I want to thank the Sacramento Kings for their great care and the NBA for putting the protocols in place to allow me to catch this early,” Len’s statement said. “I have immediately entered isolation and look forward to being cleared and rejoining my teammates for our playoff push.”nike nfl cheap jerseys

The Kings (28-36) are one of the 22 NBA teams scheduled to resume games on July 30 in Orlando, Florida.

Parker, 25, has appeared in one game with the Kings. He was traded to Sacramento in February after averaging 15 points in 32 games with the Atlanta Hawks this season.nike jerseys nfl cheap

Len, 27, also was part of that trade involving the Hawks and Kings. He has averaged 6.6 points in nine games with Sacramento.

Dak Prescott plans to sign franchise tag by Monday, source says

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott plans to sign his $31.4 million exclusive franchise tender by Monday, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The two sides still have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. The Cowboys had placed the franchise tag on Prescott on March 18.

By signing his franchise tender, Prescott will be contractually obligated to report to training camp on time, whether or not he and the Cowboys can figure out a long-term deal.

Prescott’s decision to sign the franchise tender is not an indication that a long-term agreement is close, league sources told ESPN’s Ed Werder.cheap nfl jerseys nike china

The fact that Prescott will be one of the highest-paid players in the NFL — and the potential his franchise tag increases by a mandatory 20% next season to $37.7 million with a flat or lower cap in 2021 — is incentive for Dallas to secure a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline.8

Said one source of the pressure on the Cowboys: “Their problem is the second year, because this salary cap is going to crash unless there’s an intermediate deal. They would have to gut their team to keep him then. So there’s even more incentive for the Cowboys to do a long-term deal with Dak because of the coronavirus and where the cap might be next year.”

This offseason, the Cowboys made a long-term offer to Prescott that would put him among the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL, ESPN’s Todd Archer previously reported. Seattle’s Russell Wilson is the highest paid at $35 million per season, followed by Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger at $34 million.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones have repeatedly expressed their belief that Prescott is the team’s quarterback of the future and capable of leading the franchise back to a Super Bowl. Prescott, who turns 27 on July 29, has said on multiple occasions that he never wanted to leave the Cowboys.nfl cheap nike jerseys

The Cowboys had hoped to sign Prescott to an extension last offseason that would have guaranteed him nine figures, but the quarterback bet on himself, willing to play for $2.02 million in 2019.

Prescott completed 388 of 596 passes for 4,902 yards and 30 touchdown passes last season. Despite career highs in yardage and touchdowns, Prescott had his worst record as a starter (8-8) as the Cowboys missed the playoffs. His growth as a passer, however, was obvious as the Cowboys had two 1,000-yard receivers in Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup.

The Cowboys took Prescott with their second pick of the fourth round in the 2016 draft — a compensatory pick at No. 135 overall. When Tony Romo went down in the 2016 preseason with a back injury, the Cowboys were forced to turn to Prescott, and he has started each of Dallas’ 64 games since.

Patriots’ Devin and Jason McCourty cautious of NFL’s return

New England Patriots defensive backs Devin and Jason McCourty described the possibility of returning to work as nerve-wracking and “scary” due to the coronavirus pandemic.cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys

“I think everybody’s nervous, because the norm is that we just go to work — we put in a lot of work, we bond together, we lift, we’re in close quarters. It feels like that’s all being taken away from us, so I don’t know how to react. I don’t know what’s it’s going to be,” Devin McCourty said Sunday night on the “Double Coverage” podcast.

“I love how a lot of players’ attention has been on what’s going on outside of football, and I think we’ll continue to do that. But figuring out football, to me, seems to be the hardest thing right now. We hope, but I don’t know if we’ll figure it out, honestly.”

“For me, there would be no coming together to do any type of practice with teammates, because I just think we can’t dismiss with corona and everything going on,” Jason said on the podcast he shares with Devin. “I’ve been out here in Nashville, and I actually go run at the high school where I think a lot of the 49ers players were doing their team-practice ordeal. They just had a player or two test positive, [according to a NFL Network report].

“It’s kind of scary because something like that, I think it was probably just offense, so they probably had maybe 10 guys out there. When you think about the future, if it’s hard for 10 guys just to get together to do little passing drills or anything of that nature, to think about somewhere between 53 and 90 guys in a training camp, it’s going to be insane. So I don’t know how that’s going to turn out.”

One possibility would be to emulate plans by the NBA and MLS for a “bubble” format. In a CNN interview last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that is what the NFL would need to do to give itself the best chance to have a season.

Both McCourtys expressed doubt on how that would work.7

“I think it’s very different for football. You think about training camp, there’s 90 guys on the team. Not only are there 90 guys, but there’s a coaching staff usually made up of maybe 15 to 20 … and there are so many other football-essential personnel that are in the building. You’re talking about 32 teams with over 100 members that you have to house; I don’t know if it’s really fathomable for the NFL to be able to go in a bubble,” Jason said.

“Beyond that, I don’t really know — me, personally, I don’t want to ever say never, but I can’t anticipate me being away from the family for that long throughout the entirety of the season. That would be insane. It would feel like forever.”cheap nfl jerseys nike china

Added Devin: “I just can’t see me stepping away from my family for that amount of time. When you sign up for different jobs, you kind of discuss it as a family, the hardship of that. For us as players, we never had to think about that. We have training camp kind of in a month and a half, so we haven’t heard until now. The days start counting down. You might be telling your wife with a week’s notice that you’re gone for six months. To me, that would be very tough. If that is on the table, I think that needs to be discussed sooner than later for guys to be able to make that decision.”

At one point in the podcast, Jason was asked the biggest obstacle the Patriots face in 2020, and he said any specific X’s and O’s are overshadowed by the bigger picture.

“[Similar] to every other team in the league, is figuring out how to get into the building. I know that’s kind of the cliché answer right now, but everything that’s gone on with COVID, I think it’s hard at this point to even think about the individual team obstacles that you’re going to have go through because there’s so much going on out of our control right now,” Jason said.

Liverpool stumble on Premier League title march with draw at Everton

Liverpool’s march to the Premier League title took a slight wobble as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side went into the game, their first competitive match in 103 days, knowing a victory would allow them to secure their first league title in 30 years on Wednesday with a win at home to Crystal Palace.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

Both teams showed rust in a lacklustre first half that saw James Milner make way for Joe Gomez just before the break as the teams headed to the dressing room goalless after the opening 45 minutes.

It was more of the same in the second half, with Liverpool dominating possession and going close on several occasions but continuing to lack a cutting edge on their finishing.8

“It was very intense,” said Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk. “Both sides created small opportunities, they had the big one against the post. Everyone is just happy to be back, we didn’t lose and it is another point towards our goal.”

With 10 minutes remaining Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s clever flick from a low Gylfi Sigurdsson cross was pushed out by Liverpool keeper Allison and Tom Davies’ follow-up shot hit the post.

Liverpool, who left Mohamed Salah on the bench, lacked their usual potency in attack with their best opening coming in the 35th minute when Roberto Firmino screwed a shot wide from a promising position while Fabinho went close late on with a curling free kick.

Both Klopp and his Everton counterpart Carlo Ancelotti handed players first league starts with Japan’s Takumi Minamino in the Liverpool attack and 19-year-old Anthony Gordon up-front for the home side — although neither were able to make much impact.

“We didn’t have enough chances. Most of the time we were dominant but they had the biggest chance,” said Klopp. “I liked a lot of things about our game but we didn’t have those moments in attack, we didn’t have the rhythm.cheap nike nfl jerseys free shipping

“Everton defended really well and we were not smart enough to use the space. That is normal when you start to play again.

“It was a real fight. Both teams showed they understand it is a derby. Intense, physical, all players were all in.

“The point is one we deserve. When I think of all the derbies here, they looked pretty similar. Everton were well organised so we had to run a lot but we looked fit and ready.”

Liverpool host Crystal Palace on June 24 at Anfield and can seal a first Premier League title in 30 years with a win if Manchester City lose or draw with Burnley on Monday.

Christian Pulisic goal for Chelsea ‘inspiration’ in fightback win – Frank Lampard

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard praised Christian Pulisic, as the American forward scored an equaliser five minutes after coming off the bench to help his team earn a 2-1 comeback win at Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

Pulisic levelled on the hour after Kortney Hause had given Villa a 43rd minute lead, and Frenchman Olivier Giroud netted the winner two minutes later, tightening Chelsea’s grip on fourth place.

Lampard also singled out midfielder Ross Barkley and right-back Cesar Azpilicueta, who set up both Chelsea goals — one with a superb cross from his flank, and the other with a sublime pass to Giroud from the opposite side.7

“The individuals who make the difference should always take all the credit, so with Christian and Ross Barkley, who came on at the same time, they’re both players who have trained well and had cases to start this game,” said Lampard.

“We knew that fitness would play a part, so the idea of bringing on Christian and Ross early in the second half was always something that was in my mind.

“The way it was going, we needed a bit of inspiration, and Christian gave it with his goal. I thought Ross did really well, too. I keep saying to the players how important subs could be in this period, and they showed that.”nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

“I thought Azpi was really good in the game. Obviously, he delivers the ball for Christian’s goal and got really high up in areas.”

The result left Chelsea on course for a Champions League berth next season, five points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United and sixth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Lampard praising his team’s character.

“We showed great character and quality in the second half to win the game, so I’m pleased. I thought we moved the ball pretty well for most of the game and dominated possession clearly.”
