Richard Sherman takes aim at Pete Carroll in war with Seahawks

Richard Sherman’s war of words against his former team wages on.

Following a social media exchange Wednesday with the newly retired Joe Thomas, the 49ers cornerback took the former Brown up on his offer, appearing on the ThomasHawkpodcast, where he suggested the Seattle brass lost their way a little bitin terms of evaluating players following a mediocre 9-7 campaign last season.

I’m vengeful in that way,Sherman told MMQB.com.

Sherman isn’t the only member of the vaunted defense who was forced to flee the coup this offseason. Defensive end Michael Bennett was traded to the Eagles, whereas cornerback Deshawn Shead signed with the Lions.

As for the fate of Carroll, Sherman noted the Seahawks’ 2018 performance could factor into 66-year-old Carroll’s decision on the future.

I think that it depends on how this season goes for them. If they do great, get to the playoffs and continue to have the success, then I think he continues to go. But if things don’t go as planned and they don’t get to the playoffs and they have a rough year, then I think that’ll weigh into his decision. The legacy begins to get tainted at that point,Sherman said.

What is the most important thing in life is to be happy,McDonough told WEEI in Boston on Thursday. As much as it was a great honor to be the voice of ‘Monday Night Football’and you guys know me well enough, and certainly a lot of my friends and family do it wasn’t a tremendous amount of fun the last two years. When I took my ego out of it, when the conversation about a reboot of ‘MNF’ came up, when I took the ego part of it out, and rationalized it, I really could be fine with not being the voice of ‘MNF,’ then it became easy.

The nationally coveted gig was built for his sidekick, Jon Gruden. The event-television had been conceived around the longtime, personable head coach, with McDonough serving more as a straight man to Gruden’s X’s-and-O’s shtick.

And McDonough had a back-seat role for games that were not what they once were. Despite the $1.9 billion ESPN pays the NFL annually for the primetime package, the games that have gotten the billing have gotten increasingly worse.

Browns continue to support Josh Gordon

Browns receiver Josh Gordon is an exclusive rights free agent. Which mean he isn’t a free agent at all. Which means the Browns have dibs on whether to offer him a one-year contract for the minimum salary for a player with his level of experience.

Based on comments from Browns G.M. John Dorsey to PFT Live at the Scouting Combine, it sounds like the Browns will.

The Phillies’ offseason work extended well into spring training and might not be finished yet, as they still look like a good fit for one of the remaining veteran free-agent starters. Yes, that’s true even after last week’s splashy signing of former Cubs ace Jake Arrieta . The signing allowed the Phillies to jump over the threshold between sellers and buyers into what could turn out to be what Scott Boras — Arrieta’s agent — likes to call Playoffville. If the Phillies ended up in the seller group, it wouldn’t have made much difference, as they have virtually nothing in the way of expiring contracts to be moved. Maybe that’s as good a sign as any that the slow-burning rebuild is finally coming to fruition. Indeed, things seem to be percolating in Philadelphia.

Hamels, 34, is coming off an uncharacteristically poor season in Texas. The lefty posted a 4.20 ERA, 6.4 SO/9 and 1.98 SO/BB. The ERA was Hamels’ worst since 2009. The strikeout and walk numbers represented the worst figures the 12-year pro has posted in the majors.

Still, there’s reason to believe Hamels can bounceback and reinvent himself as a viable starter for years to come. Hamels owns a 3.37 ERA in over 2,300 career innings. We’re looking at a veteran that will likely figure it out and pitch well again soon.

It was a crazy process but obviously for me to be able to come back, I’m excited about that,McCown told The Post in a phone interview. I’m just looking forward to being able to continue to build with these guys and the chemistry and all that. I’m excited about being back.

For McCown, he had to wait for Kirk Cousins to pick a team before knowing where he would go. The Jets had a strong interest in Cousins but he chose the Vikings, where he will reportedly get a fully guaranteed three-year, $84 million deal.

I just knew that he was kind of the prize, so to speak,McCown said. Everybody was going after him. I was just kind of waiting and being patient. It seemed like everybody kind of had their order of what they were going to do if they got Kirk and if not what would they do, what was Plan B. It was a matter of waiting that out.

Flu could keep Ohio State DL Tyquan Lewis out of drills

Center Billy Price and defensive lineman Tyquan Lewis are two of three players to play 55 games in their careers at Ohio State. That durability has been replaced by bad luck at the Scouting Combine.

Nobody in the NFL has a larger contract relative to the other players at his position than Juszczyk. The Harvard product is in line to make $15.5 million in the first three years of his deal when no other active fullback deal calls for more than $6.6 million over the same time frame. Given that the fullback continues to be de-emphasized in offenses in favor of a third wideout or a second tight end, it’s unlikely that we’ll see many enormous contracts at the position anytime soon.

The two nine-figure contracts handed out to wide receivers under the current CBA are long gone, as Calvin Johnson has retired and Larry Fitzgerald is on a one-year, $11 million extension. Brown once had one of the biggest bargain veteran contracts in all of football, but after making $37.3 million over five years on his second deal, Brown got a huge raise to $17 million per year after the 2016 season.

Wilkerson was released by the Jets after a dismal 2017 season that saw him have little impact on the field before getting benched in Week 15 as a result of a missed team meeting. That was the latest in a string of missed meetings or late arrivals and Wilkerson did not play again for the Jets.

In Green Bay, Wilkerson will have the chance to renew acquaintances with defensive coordinator Mike Pettine after the men worked together with the Jets in 2011 and 2012. He’ll also have the chance to make his case that he’s a more committed player than he appeared to be at the end of his run with the Jets.Titans will release Matt Cassel, Eric Weems

The Titans announced on Thursday that running back DeMarco Murray will be cut loose and they added three more veterans to the discard pile on Friday.

In addition to confirming the release of safety Da’Norris Searcy, the Titans also announced that they’ve told quarterback Matt Cassel and wide receiver Eric Weems that they will be dropped from the roster as well.

Same case as Robinson, but probably at a higher number. Watkins didn’t put up big numbers in the Rams’ offense but is still viewed by many as a top talent. — Graziano

The leaguewide demand at quarterback could obviously lead to a long-term deal, but Bradford’s knee is enough of a concern at this point that he might have to pick a spot (Arizona?) where he can prove himself healthy for a year before hitting the market again for one more big payday. — Graziano

Injuries have defined his career so far, but when he has been on the field, he has shown himself to be a strong option in the red zone. The tight end market should be interesting, and a lot of teams are looking, but Eifert has a lot to prove before he can get his long-term deal. — Graziano

He was aware of what I was doing and obviously I was aware of what he was doing, Olson said. His name was plastered everywhere. We just talked to each other and he asked if I was getting hounded by the media. I was like, ‘Uhh, honestly, no.’ I feel like nobody knows. It was good. I told him, ‘Stay healthy, keep it up, and good luck the rest of the way.’

Hoskins went on a riveting run with 11 homers in 79 at-bats in August before Olson topped it with 13 long balls in 79 ABs in September. For the season, Olson averaged one homer every 7.88 at-bats — the fourth-best ratio ever for a hitter with at least 200 plate appearances. Only Barry Bonds (in 2001), and Mark McGwire (in 1998 and 2000) have surpassed it.

My wife and I talk about my struggles, Bosh says. You have to have those conversations. A lot of guys in this league don’t talk to their wives. They go on the road, do what they want to do, they figure, ‘This is basketball, she won’t understand.’ It’s easy to keep that divide when you are playing. But when you are in the house 24/7, it’s a whole different world. It’s a sensitive topic, but it’s important. My wife and I are one person. I’m very lucky to be able to say that.

She has helped me realize I have to move on, create a new life. I’m a husband, I’m a father, and I’ve got to dive into that now.

In the meantime, Bosh says he’s navigating bills, doctor’s appointments and his financial portfolio. The next big thing has yet to materialize in his mind.

I have millions of dollars and I don’t know finance, Bosh says. I’ve had some bad things happen in my career. I’ve got to educate myself. I sit down with my finance guy once a month and go over everything, line by line.

Ekman-Larsson, Kuemper lead Coyotes past Canucks, 1-0

The Canucks know they need to step up the offensive pressure early in games.

Jusuf Nurkic racked up 27 points (12-18 FG, 3-5 FT), 16 boards, 3 dimes and 3 swats against the Miami Heat on Monday. We’ve seen big nights like this from him before, but consistency has been an issue. What do you think the long-term ceiling is for this 23-year-old big?

After a night where almost all of the on-court action was incredibly one-sided, and without much in the way of individual standouts, AndrĂ© Snellings tries to figure out a way to cut through all the chaos of March’s NBA action to identify fantasy value.

AndrĂ© Snellings: The ceiling for Nurkic, as in the highest possible outcome, would be to average the kind of numbers that he put up on Monday. Nurkic has that kind of talent, as a huge man with great skills in the paint and a comfortability to face-up some, even from mid-range. However, there have been questions about his attitude in both of his stops so far — in Denver, and occasionally with Portland — that raises some uncertainty as to how close to his ceiling he can get.

Will the Jaguars re-sign Allen Robinson, or will the wide receiver suit up elsewhere in 2018? NFL Nation reporters take their best guess on what happens with every team’s biggest free agent.

The Eagles are still working on trying to re-sign Robinson, but he might want to parlay his surprise big season into a trip to the free-agent market. If he does, he’ll wait for the bigger names to sign their eight-figure-a-year deals, then pitch himself as a solid nickel option for a team looking to spend $5 million or $6 million per season. — Graziano

With every team I’ve been on, I’ve wanted to be a guy that people look at as a leader or say, ‘That guy is doing things the right way. I want to be like him,’ Chapman said. I haven’t dug too much into it. I don’t know if there’s a specific role where somebody gets a thing on their jersey. But I want to be there for anybody on our team, just like I’d expect them to be there for me and help us to be the best, most successful players we can.

Not that I dislike the guy, but I can’t envision Realmuto winding up on many of my fantasy teams.

The Miami Marlins’ competitive weaknesses are going to hinder Realmuto’s runs/RBIs chances, which makes up a decent chunk of his value, and since I think some fantasy managers are going to get fooled into getting caught up in a midround position run fearing they’ll be left with the position’s scraps, I anticipate he’s going to frequently go in the Rounds 12-14 range in standard leagues, which is simply too soon for my tastes considering his production. — Tristan H. Cockcroft

I could really talk about any of the top three at this position and call it a day, but I do believe Sanchez and Posey will end up being among the best at catcher, even if they don’t necessarily earn back value given the round they are selected.

There really is not a building block at catcher, unless it is Sanchez. He is getting the Rob Gronkowski treatment as the obvious, safe, top option at his special position for his sport but we have only about a year and a half of proof there. I think Molina or Castillo 15-plus rounds later is a better block. — Eric Karabell

Ovechkin was at ESPN to film his This Is SportsCenter Russian spy spot in late 2009, and I asked him about the possibility of catching Gretzky. He was surprised at the question and didn’t know what to say. I don’t think he had been asked about it before, which is understandable. I also think he was nervous about working with Steve Levy (he’s only human), and he was a tad rattled.

Which teams have the best shot at locking up a playoff spot? Who’s earning a better shot at the No. 1 overall pick? Here are the latest projections for both, along with critical matchups to watch today and much more.

Alex Ovechkin has reached 600 career goals, but how well do you know the details of the Washington Capitals star’s scoring dominance? Test your knowledge here!

Ovechkin told Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet in Canada in September about the possibility of passing Gretzky’s total: In this hockey right now, in this league, I think it’s impossible. I don’t think somebody will beat this record.

To restate what I told you yesterday, the final month of the NBA season can look a lot like chaos. This is also the time of year when the fantasy playoffs get into full swing. For those playing DFS, the action will continues hot and heavy right on through the NBA playoffs. Speaking personally, I’ve actually had relatively more DFS success during this chaos period than at any other time of the season, perhaps because I’m able to find some order in the chaos.

As I’ve said for the past two seasons: The Capitals need someone to clear the Pittsburgh Penguins off the road to a championship. Washington is 0-and-3 against Sidney Crosby in the postseason, with Pittsburgh winning the Stanley Cup each time it has thwarted the Caps. I don’t believe that the Capitals can beat Pittsburgh, and whether it’s against the Philadelphia Flyers, New Jersey Devils or Columbus Blue Jackets in round one, I think the Penguins will advance. Which means the Capitals’ season will probably end in the semifinals — again.

He was averaging a team-leading 22.7 points and an NBA-high 2.4 blocks per game at the time of the injury, which occurred when Porzingis landed on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s foot after converting a dunk during a loss to Milwaukee in early February.

His injury had a ripple effect for New York this season. Before Porzingis went down, the Knicks remained hopeful of making a playoff run. With Porzingis out, the Knicks recalibrated and have been playing younger players such as Frank Ntilikina, Emmanuel Mudiay and Trey Burke more over the remainder of the season.

They had lost 15 of their past 16 games entering Tuesday’s game against Dallas and hope to add an elite player in the 2018 NBA draft.

Karlsson put the Golden Knights ahead 2-1 six minutes into the third period with their second power-play goal. Mrazek made a pad save on Shea Theodore’s deflection, but the puck went right to Karlsson and he fired into the open net for his team-leading 36th goal. Jonathan Marchessault picked up an assist, upping his team-best total to 66 points.

Rockets face Celtics with revenge on their minds

Their losses have been so few and far between that the Rockets are rarely in position to circle a game on the schedule and set out for revenge against a particular opponent.

However, the Rockets (48-13) on Saturday will have the opportunity to make amends for one of their small handful of ugly defeats when they host the Boston Celtics at Toyota Center. Houston blew a 26-point lead in falling 99-98 at TD Garden on Dec. 28, the fourth setback in what would develop into a season-long five-game losing skid for the then-shorthanded Rockets.

Houston played that night without starters Chris Paul and Clint Capela and reserve swingman Luc Mbah a Moute. The Rockets nevertheless led 64-38 early in the second half before coming undone, their stellar offense unraveling against the Celtics’ suffocating defense soon thereafter.

“There’s always things we’d like to tinker with, we just don’t want to go crazy thinking we can solve everything,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said. “Some of it is you just make shots (or) you miss shots and we’re in a period now … after the All-Star break we’re not going to be as sharp as we were before. But we’ll give it another couple weeks and we’ll see.”

The reigning MVP had 43 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 56 seconds to play, and the Thunder scored the final 10 points of the game to escape with a 124-116 victory over the Suns on Friday night.

“They always play us tough, especially here,” Westbrook said. “We stayed with it and made big plays down the stretch.”

Paul George scored 20 points for Oklahoma City. Westbrook also had 14 rebounds and eight assists.

“His passion, his energy that he brings every night is Cheap Kids Football Jerseys unbelievable,” Phoenix guard Devin Booker said.

Booker scored 39 points, his career high for a home game. At 21 years, 123 days old, he became the third-youngest player in NBA history to reach 4,000 career points. Only Cheap Jerseys Wholesale LeBron James and Kevin Durant were younger.

Booker said he’s grown to admire Westbrook more and more.

Curry tweaks ankle, has 28 as Warriors top Hawks

Golden State coach Steve Kerr wasn’t going to gamble on leaving Stephen Curry in a close game, even after Curry’s dramatic proof of how well he could play after turning his right ankle.

Curry scored 28 points, including 15 in the final seven minutes of the first half after returning from the ankle injury, and the Warriors beat the Atlanta Hawks 114-109 on Friday night for their fifth straight victory.

Jonas Valenciunas and reserve Fred VanVleet added 12 points apiece for Toronto.

Otto Porter Jr. led Washington with 24 points on 9-of-12 shooting and Bradley Beal rebounded from an eight-point effort Wednesday against Golden State to finish with 23.

But 18 Washington turnovers — including six by point guard Tomas Satoransky — led to 27 Toronto points.

“I think it was bad decision-making, especially on my part,” Satoransky said. “I think I have to do a much better job. Especially the first half. I felt like that kind of had an influence on my game There were some bad mistakes I usually don’t do.”

Invariably, when looking for the moment when a young player is ready to fulfill his full potential, I look to 3-point production. Volume usually arrives a little before efficiency, especially for top players such as LeBron and Antetokounmpo. Big expectations beget volume.

“Basically their call,” Curry said. “Frustrating, but big picture, I understand. … I don’t think it’s going to be anything that will keep me out.”

Kerr said Curry was “limping a little bit” in the third quarter, leading to the “precautionary” decision to take him out of the game for good.

“He wanted to stay in but we didn’t want him to stay in just because of the potential to make it worse,” Kerr said.

Kevin Durant also had 28 points for the Warriors, who are unbeaten since the All-Star break.

Atlanta’s Dennis Schroder, who had 27 points, sank three free throws with 19 seconds remaining to cut Golden State’s lead to 111-109. Durant made only one of two free throws to Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike push the lead to three points before Andre Iguodala’s steal from Kent Bazemore and layup clinched the win.

“Kent lost the ball and it just fumbled to me,” Iguodala said.

Kerr said the steal was “a hell of a play, an attacking, defensive Baseball Jerseys Custom play. Pretty impressive basically just to take the ball from Kent and go down and finish the game. … That was amazing.”

Bazemore led the Hawks with a career-high 29 points.

Former OC Don Treadwell rejoining Spartans in variety of roles

Former Michigan State offensive coordinator Don Treadwell is returning to the Spartans’ staff.

The school announced Monday that Treadwell will help coach defensive backs and special teams while also serving as an offensive consultant. He’ll also be the team’s freshman head coach — a new role created to support the growth and development of first-year players.

It was defense, coach Luke Walton said. Our defense was awesome tonight. That was the challenge all day to the guys. It doesn’t matter who’s out, how many guys are out, if we defend the way we’re capable and compete on that end of the floor.

The Lakers held Indiana to 38.1 percent shooting, including a miserable 2 of 25 from 3-point range.

We missed shots, turned the ball over and they made shots, Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. That was really the game.

The Lakers first grabbed control in the second quarter. Players took turns aggressively slashing through the lane and then Clarkson got hot, scoring nine points as Los Angeles outscored the Pacers 29-14 in the period.

After discussions with my family and the UM medical staff we have determined that my football career should come to an end, Young said in a statement released by the school. I look forward to getting healthy, working towards my degree and continuing to support my teammates, as I know they will continue to support me.

Young started the last three games of his true freshman season in 2016 and blossomed into one of the ACC’s better defensive backs as a sophomore, recording 43 tackles and picking off two passes.

Young tweeted Saturday suggesting that the injury, which he suffered in the first quarter of the Orange Bowl, would be career ending, and the school confirmed it Sunday, noting he will undergo surgery at the Miami Medical Center.
