Brent Musburger’s sports betting company has message for N.J. gamblers

You are looking live at legalized sports betting coming to New Jersey.
Youth Limited Matt Moore White Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Road #8 NFL Miami Dolphins Nike
And the Vegas Stats and Information Network – founded by legendary broadcaster Brent Musburger and his family – wants to make sure Garden State bettors know what the action is on their NFL teams once sports books officially open in the coming weeks following Monday’s Supreme Court ruling a federal ban preventing states from regulating sports betting is unconstitutional.

I’m still kind of bothered that he hasn’t corrected some of the same issues he had last year. I think he’s going to be a really good NFL player, and his issues are all correctable鈥攈e just needs to do it, one NFC scout said of Vea, per Zierlein.

K.J. Wright Authentic Jersey Vea should be part of the defensive tackle rotation immediately, but he isn’t polished enough to be a three-down player out of the gate. Expect him to have much more of a consistent presence in Years 2 and 3.

The Washington Redskins didn’t have the worst defense in the NFL, but they did have the worst run defense (134.1 yards rushing per game). This is why they didn’t hesitate to grab former Alabama defensive tackle Da’Ron Payne.

In its first statement issued in the aftermath of Monday’s landmark ruling paving the way for nationwide sports betting, the NFL makes clear its intention not to lobby individual states but to lobby Congress for a law that protects the NFL’s interests.

The NFL’s long-standing and unwavering commitment to protecting the integrity of our game remains absolute, the league said. Congress has long-recognized the potential harms posed by sports betting to the integrity of sporting contests and the public confidence in these events. Given that history, we intend to call on Congress again, this time to enact a core regulatory framework for legalized sports betting. We also will work closely with our clubs to ensure that any state efforts that move forward in the meantime protect our fans and the integrity of our game.

In other words, the NFL would like there to be federal guidelines to which states would have to adhere. That way the NFL wouldn’t have to deal with the headache associated with 50 states having 50 different sets of laws. That could throw a wrench into how quickly change arrives. PERRY – Are Authentic Louis Domingue Jersey Patriots dealing with a culture change?

Astrology apparently telling former NFL great Ricky Williams to invest in Bitcoin

We have to set the scene for you. It’s the only way this is going to work. Shortly after his marijuana-themed Super Bowl party, former NFL great Ricky Williams had a reckoning of sorts. It had to include some high-grade wacky tobacky and an astrologist.

There’s no telling if this is how it went down, but we’re here for suggestions.

Either way, Williams — known to be a bit of an odd duckling — just recently indicated that he’s studying astrology. Not only that, astrology itself told Mr. Williams to invest in Bitcoin.

Fast forward to 2017, and West was basically an afterthought in Kansas City. Rookie Kareem Hunt took the NFL world by storm, while West logged just 18 carries and 27 receptions.

That could make West a cap casualty this offseason, as his contract features an easy out for Kansas City. While he is due to earn just over $2 million in 2018, only $333,000 is guaranteed. If backs like Spencer Ware, Kerywnn Williams and undrafted rookie Darrel Williams impress in the offseason, West could be out.

Ware would be a nice complement to the speedy Hunt if he’s back to 100 percent after last year’s knee injury. He’s a big back at 229 pounds, but is a capable runner and receiver who averaged 4.3 yards per carry and had 33 receptions in 2016. If Ware is healthy, West would be the Chiefs’ No. 3 back at best, and the team may want a cheaper option in that role.

Free-agent running back Adrian Peterson told NFL Network on Thursday that he is healthy and ready to roll as he looks to sign with a new team for the 2018 season. Peterson, who spent last season with the New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals, turned 33 years old in March but told the network that he still believes he can be a very productive running back in the NFL. I’m ready, Peterson told NFL Network.

He brought in safety Damarious Randall and cornerbacks E.J. Gaines and T.J. Carrie. He drafted Ohio State product Denzel Ward with the fourth overall pick and also shipped Jason McCourty off to the New England Patriots.

Taylor could be following McCourty out of Cleveland. According to Terry Pluto of the Plain Dealer, the Browns are looking to trade him.

If the Browns are unable to move Taylor and aren’t happy with his performance in the offseason, they could opt to release him. While he has two years remaining on his contract, only $1.5 million of it is guaranteed.

Ranking Rutgers’ top all-time NFL Draft picks

Alexander Radulov Authentic Jersey
He actually was on the verge of wanting to switch numbers, as well, McCourty told reporters on Tuesday, via The Boston Globe. So, just in our Rutgers way, we were able to work it all out and everybody walks away happy.
Fanatics Branded NHL Men's Oliver Ekman-Larsson Burgundy Red Home Breakaway Jersey - #23 Arizona Coyotes
It’s common for players to work out side deals to free up certain numbers, with the player giving up the number coming away with some form of compensation. There’s no indication that happened here, although such a transaction would likely fall under the Patriots’ omerta.

Tyrell Crosby, the team’s fifth-round selection, was one of the surprising draft slides before the Lions stopped his descent. Similar in size to Cowboys All-Pro Tyron Smith, and with arms nearly as long, the Lions are hoping Crosby can start his career at offensive tackle. Lacking the elite athletic traits that made Smith so dominant, Crosby appears destined for a move inside to guard, either as depth or an eventual successor to T.J. Lang.
Tampa Bay Rays Authentic Jersey
Crosby bears some athletic similarities to Panthers Pro Bowl guard Trai Turner, with both posting the same shuttle time and Crosby putting up a somewhat better time in the 3-cone. Explosiveness is more of a strength for Crosby, and his vertical and broad jumps were each within an inch of those scored by Pro Bowler Zack Martin.

It was obvious who was coming in to replace righty Heath Hembree when the Red Sox bullpen door opened and the ballpark buzz instantly transformed to deafening boos.

Coming in to face Judge was Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly, the new Bronx villain who ignited a bench-clearing brawl on April 11 at Fenway Park by drilling Yankees first baseman Tyler Austin with a pitch that was retaliation for a hard slide into second base.

Never one to lose focus, Judge concentrated on this moment instead of last month’s, and once again big No. 99 Authentic Nikolay Kulemin Jersey delivered.

The University of Alabama put 12 players in the NFL this season, breaking their own record of 10 from last season.

Many NFL coaches routinely speak to Nick Saban to pick his brain. Patriots coach Bill Belichick is practically a Saban groupie. There’s no question that the greatest college football conduit to the NFL, possibly ever, is Alabama.

Report: Curtis Fuller’s departure tied to texts, emails to female Panthers employees

Panthers defensive backs coach Curtis Fuller abruptly resigned this week for reasons that were not made completely clear, but a new report indicates that his resignation was a result of workplace misconduct with female Panthers employees.

Youth Eddie Lack Jersey Braves fans have to be thrilled with how the team’s young players are faring so far. Dansby Swanson and Ozzie Albies have maintained early OPS marks over .900. Mike Foltynewicz and Sean Newcomb are each striking out at least 11 batters per nine innings. And as the season progresses, Atlanta should continue to draw talent from its top-rated farm system. — Woolums

The Mariners were reminded last week that the Astros still are the class of the AL West for the time being. Seattle lost three of four to the reigning Chandler Jones Authentic Jersey champs, scoring a total of six runs in the four-game series. Edwin Diaz has been lights-out at the back end of the bullpen, but Felix Hernandez isn’t showing many signs of a bounce-back season, and James Paxton hasn’t been nearly as effective as he was last season. — Casella

The usual suspects keep hitting for the Rockies, with both Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon off to hot starts this season. On the mound, it has been Chad Bettis, not Jon Gray, who has pitched like the staff ace so far. Gray, the club’s Opening Day starter, is 1-4 with a 6.75 ERA in five starts. Bettis has helped pick up the slack, spinning a 1.44 ERA over his four starts this season. — Casella

Allen shares a name with a Hall of Fame running back and is the godson of another 鈥?Curtis Martin 鈥?but will be trying to make his mark on defense with the Steelers. Allen had 320 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, three sacks and an interception in 49 games over four years at Penn State.

Frazier used his big body 鈥?6’3鈥?and 321 pounds 鈥?as a reserve on Alabama’s defensive line and will be trying for a similar role with the Steelers.

Youth Brian Orakpo Jersey What you have to appreciate is his unseen production, Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman said the day the team took Carter. If he is flying off the edge, he is creating pressure.

Maliek Collins needs surgery after breaking his left foot Thursday

Maliek Collins takes one step forward and two steps back. Or something like that.
#2 Nike Kyrie Irving Ash NBA - Backer Cleveland Cavaliers T-Shirt
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told some season ticket holders earlier Thursday that Collins injured his foot. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media since has reported that the defensive tackle broke a foot while participating in the team鈥檚 offseason conditioning program Thursday.

In order to keep the streak alive, the Patriots sent the No. 193 pick to the Eagles Joe Mullen Womens Jersey for the No. 194 pick.

Limited Mens Vincent Lecavalier Jersey The 2011 draft featured two talented players with names similar enough to confuse teams like Cleveland 鈥?USC tight end Jordan Cameron and California defensive end Cameron Jordan. The Browns, on the clock with the 102nd pick, dialed the wrong number when trying to call Jordan Cameron.

Jimmy Walker, the first overall pick in the 1967 NBA Draft, was also the final pick of the 1967 NFL Draft. The Saints selected him in the 17th round despite no college football experience.

Walker made the right decision and went on to a successful basketball career 鈥?two NBA All-Star appearances and 11,655 career points.

No surprise: He鈥檚 the only athlete to be the first pick in one pro league and the last pick in another.

This means that Peter鈥檚 popular, informative, and comprehensive Monday morning column will appear here, at NBCSports.com, starting in July. It鈥檚 a football tour de force, the culmination of hours and hours of phone calls and elbow grease, and it鈥檚 the first thing I read every Monday morning 鈥?typically providing the basis for 3-4 or more blurbs at PFT.

But there鈥檚 more. Peter will contribute once per week to PFT Live, in the Chris Simms role. Simms will continue to appear on the show for two hours per day, three times per week, and Peter will be with us for one of the other two days. Peter also will make ongoing contributions to NBC鈥檚 Football Night in America.
Limited Mens Nelson Agholor Jersey
For six years, Peter and I spent every Sunday during football season at NBC, and he has become a generous mentor and a great friend. His insights on PFT Live during his periodic visits to the show have been valuable, and I very much look forward to having him add to the overall experience on a regular basis.

Celtics guard Terry Rozier cheated over to help when Morris was slow to react, but that left Malcolm Brogdon wide open in front of the Boston bench.

“It was like, ‘Well, my role just changed,'” Larkin said.

Despite being a healthy scratch in Boston’s home opener, Larkin got an extended second-half run two nights later in Philadelphia and put up 10 points and four assists over 19 minutes as Boston rallied for its first win of the season.

“Sometimes I think they’re at their best when those things happen, you know? I think it’s just a resilient group of kids. Not kids — men.”

Carlos Asuaje (L), 0.9 percent, San Diego Padres at Colorado Rockies (RHP Jon Gray): He homered in the series opener at Coors Field, so why not ride it? With three two-knock games in his last five, he’s cementing at least the top-side platoon role at the keystone. Deep players could do worse than trying to capitalize on Gray’s early issues.

The Celtics were clinging to a 96-93 lead with 15 seconds to go after a pair of Al Horford free throws (he scored 13 of his team-high 24 points at the line), and the Bucks called timeout to draw up a play. Antetokounmpo inbounded, took an immediate hand-back and accelerated down the middle of the floor.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens’ pained reaction after Brogdon connected told the story of a broken defensive series.

Malcolm Brogdon, Bucks guard: “It was really for Giannis to come off and make a play, find somebody or shoot it. And he found me, so I shot it with confidence.”

Brad Stevens, Celtics head coach: “We could’ve done better. That one we could’ve done better.”

In the afternoon, he quarterbacked the Red squad to an overtime win over the White squad in Oklahoma’s spring football game at Memorial Stadium. Shortly after, Murray dashed less than two miles over to the baseball stadium, where the Sooners were set to clash with rival Texas in the second game of a crucial series for conference supremacy.

“I’m feeling it in my legs,” Murray said late Saturday night while scooping oranges out of an oversized jar. “Not so much mentally, but obviously physically. I’m not too tired yet, but I’ll feel it, I’m sure, in a couple days.”

Khan, whose team has played a game overseas each season since 2013, recently placed a multimillion-dollar bid to purchase the world famous sporting arena.

And the billionaire owner now has an eye on utilizing the stadium to host two high-profile events, according to a report from BBC Sport.

[Smart’s return] means a lot for our team, Horford said. I think I said it earlier in the year that he was kind of like the soul of our team. Just everything that he brings — his toughness, unselfishness, just a hard-nosed player, and we fed off his energy tonight.

I felt like the crowd fed off of it, we fed off of it, and it’s just good to have him back. It’s just been genuinely a really nice surprise for our group, because I didn’t think he was coming back. I didn’t want to get our hopes up even when I heard it was a possibility. We’re just happy to get him back, and he just had a huge impact on our team tonight.

Smart was expected to miss six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery in mid-March. His return date slowly crept up in recent weeks, and Smart made a dash to New York on Monday to gain final clearance from his physician to resume contact activities.

I Dave Robinson Authentic Jersey don’t believe we’re on Hard Knocks, Dorsey said Wednesday on Browns’ radio partner ESPN Cleveland 850. I don’t think there’s anything good that comes out of Hard Knocks, but we’ll see.

Asked about rumors that they’re on the docu-series, he said, No, I really don’t know.

And if the NFL forces the Browns to be on?

You know what? They’ll do that, but it’s OK, he said. I’m OK with it. I mean, you know what? It is what it is, but I’m OK with it.
Bob Lilly Jersey
So your preference would be to not do it?

I can go either way, you guys, he said. I mean, it’s the way football is, and, you know, I’m OK with it either way.

The Browns are one of six teams that could be compelled to appear, because they don’t meet any of the exemptions: 1. A first-year head coach, 2. A playoff appearance in the previous two seasons, or 3. They’ve appeared on Hard Knocks in the past 10 years.

One team has already campaigned against it.

Lauletta was the belle of the ball as a sleeper quarterback at the Senior Bowl but may have seen his stock artificially inflated leaving Mobile.

Daniel Sorensen Authentic Jersey He’s still a nice developmental prospect at quarterback but isn’t game-ready.
Men's Calgary Flames #24 Travis Hamonic Adidas Green Authentic Salute To Service NHL Jersey
Falk might not be a fit in every scheme, but in a West Coast system he has the tools and smarts to step in and play right away. He doesn’t compare favorably to the trait-based quarterbacks in this class but is a natural passer.

As a developmental prospect, Allen has the traits that make coaches drool. His arm talent, athleticism, football IQ and personality are all ideal. The question every front office will ask is if it can get the most out of him.

Many will make excuses for Allen’s struggles (two-year starter at Wyoming, poor supporting cast, etc.), but evaluators are taught to see Allen’s strengths, and he has plenty of those.

As the talent at USC took a dip in 2017, Darnold’s turnovers rose, but he never let it affect his demeanor. He’s poised, smart, tough and incredibly coachable. Darnold projects as a starter in his second season and has a high NFL ceiling given his mental and physical skills.

Ronald Leary Authentic Jersey A writeup last week by Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports noted that Rodgers desired more input into major personnel decisions, but the quarterback later went out of his way to quell the drama, by saying: I know my role, and that’s to play as well as I possibly can at quarterback.

Gutekunst on Monday refused to rock the boat, talking about his first offseason in the role as a group effort in Green Bay.

Ultimately, at the end of the day, it’s my job to do the task at hand, which is make decisions for the Green Bay Packers on our roster, Gutekunst said. But I’ve always felt like I was a good listener. I’ve been listening a lot the last couple weeks and will continue to do so.

Ben Roethlisberger is another example of an enduring starting passer who was openly Authentic Marquise Goodwin Jersey miffed to see some of his teammates and coaches — Bruce Arians, for example — jettisoned from Pittsburgh without his buy-in. It’s part of the job for these longtime blue-chip signal-callers.

Another black player compared Allen to Riley Cooper, the former Eagle who was videotaped using a racial slur at a concert.

Mayfield has long drawn comparisons to another former Browns quarterback, Johnny Manziel (a bust in the NFL) because of their lack of height and because both had some off-field issues. But Mayfield has insisted that the comparisons are false.

Thursday night, however, he said he will not exert energy trying to prove to people that he’s not Manziel 2.0.
Karl Joseph Kids Jersey
Johnny and I are two completely different people, he said. It’s nothing against him. But What I’ve been able to do is be up front with these coaches in these meetings. I’m going to be myself. I’m not going to prove I’m not Johnny. The rest will take care of itself.

There was also the case of former NFL quarterback Kerry Collins, who was initially alienated by teammates after he was taped using a racial slur.聽What happened to Collins is instructive for Allen. Collins was eventually forgiven by most players.聽

One team executive noted that Allen wasn’t truly using a racial slur. The executive said the quarterback was saying n—a instead of n—-r, and that there’s a difference. (Yep, that was said.)

Franklin was getting a haircut Tuesday afternoon, saying he planned to go home to the Chicago area to watch the first two days of the draft on television in Tinley Park before making his way back to Kalamazoo for graduation day.

I’m a lot more excited than words can describe right now, Franklin said. I’m not only excited for the draft, but I’m about to graduate here on Saturday so I’m going to close up this whole entire collegiate book and open up the next one.

Game Mason Crosby Jersey Franklin is 6 feet and 230 pounds, runs between the tackles and has the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.

Franklin was among four WMU players who participated in the NFL Combine last month in Indianapolis, joining offensive tackle Chukwuma Okorafor (Southfield), cornerback/kick returner Darius Phillips (Detroit/Dearborn Heights Robichaud) and tight end Donnie Ernsberger (Battle Creek Lakeview).

Corey Davis was the highest-picked player in Broncos history, getting drafted No. 5 overall by the Titans last year.

I think I did above average at the combine, gave it my all, Franklin said. I woke up early and just went all out. I’m 6 feet and 230 pounds, clocked at 4.6 at the combine, but for the Pro Day I got clocked at 4.45 and that’s usually my speed right there.

Franklin plans to make the same type of impact Toledo running back Kareem Hunt did last year when he was picked Sharrif Floyd Jersey in the third round by the Chiefs 鈥?No. 86 overall 鈥?then led the NFL in rushing (1,327 yards).

NFL Draft 2018: Christian Kirk, Courtland Sutton headline Round 2 WR group

It took 24 picks for a wide receiver to finally come off the board in this year’s NFL Draft, but the floodgates opened in Round 2.

With just two wide receivers selected in the first round, six went Friday in Round 2. The Broncos got the run started by selecting SMU star Courtland Sutton, a 6-4 lengthy weapon to help Denver stretch the field.

The 49ers then traded up to select Dante Pettis from Washington, and the Cardinals added Christian Kirk. Arizona took the Texas A&M star after selecting quarterback Josh Rosen in the first round.

Making a big splash, the Bears moved back into the second round to take Memphis wide receiver Anthony Miller, who is known as a great route runner.

Neal, who had a goal overturned in the second period, extended the lead to 7-0 when he took Perron’s pass and wrapped it around past Dell on the power play at 8:09.

Vegas’ four goals in the first period marked the fifth tim1e this season it netted four in one period. … It was the third time this season the Sharks allowed four goals in a period. … No. 1 UFC featherweight contender Brian Ortega, who fill fight champion Max Holloway for the title on July 7, was in attendance.

Hendricks’ defense also turned in a couple of nice plays. Albert Almora Jr. chased down Lorenzo Cain’s deep drive to center in the sixth, and second baseman Javier Baez robbed Braun of a hit with a leaping catch for the first out of the seventh.

Baez and Almora each extended their hit streaks to a career-best nine games. Baez is batting .429 (18 for 42) during his surge, and Almora is hitting .385 (15 for 39) during his streak.

Brewers: Thames was examined by team physician Dr. William Raasch and plans to see another doctor in Phoenix on Friday. The slugger likely will have an operation. “The injury, it’s a surgery, I think you’re looking at a minimum of six weeks and then you’ve got to see how the individual feels,” manager Craig Counsell said.

Cubs: INF/OF Ben Zobrist (back tightness) ran the bases before the game. He could come off the disabled list when he is eligible to return on Saturday.

Yu Darvish (0-2, 6.86 ERA) starts for Chicago on Friday afternoon. The Japanese right-hander is off to a slow start in his first season with the Cubs, and Maddon said he had a conversation with the pitcher while the team was in Cleveland this week.steelers_106
