Post ich has expanded to thre
With the majority of NFL training camps underway, the league is abuzz with position battles, injury news and rookies making an immediate impact. Each day, TSN.ca provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NFL beat. Johnny the Sub? In an interview with ESPN Cleveland, Browns head coach Mike Pettine said the team has already discussed having quarterback Johnny Manziel run set package plays in order to get him on the field in his rookie year. "We ran some of the zone-read stuff in practice and Kyle (Shanahan) incorporated some of the mobile quarterback elements of what he did in Washington," Pettine said. Were still going to go back to the beginning in pads, but as we get going, some of the stuff thats more game plan-specific that we dont want to show, we might work on in our walk-throughs as opposed to a public practice." Pettine noted that the strategy has been successful for other quarterbacks, and therefore he wont rule out the possibility. "Ive seen that work, so Im not close-minded to that," Pettine added. "Thats how Colin Kaepernick got his start in the NFL, as a package quarterback. On the other side of the ball, Ive seen that give defenses some trouble. I think theres positives and negatives to it. Youre taking your starter off the field. You have his rhythm and continuity to take into account, but at the same time defensively youre now forcing a team to basically come up with two game plans. I mean, there are pluses and minuses to it and its something Im sure will be discussed at some point. Im willing to say that the starter will be against it and the backup will be for it." Pettine reiterated that the Browns starting quarterback will be named by the teams third preseason game on August 23, but said he has not decided whether both Manziel and quarterback Brian Hoyer will each start a preseason game before that. Hoyer will start the Browns first preseason game. Andres Arrival After requesting a trade this offseason and skipping several team workouts, Andre Johnson reported to training camp on Friday. Johnson has spent all 11 of his NFL seasons with the Texans after being selected by the third-overall in the 2003 NFL Draft. The 33-year-old hauled in 109 passes last season for 1,407 yards and five touchdowns. Johnson was reportedly unhappy the Texans refused to use the first-overall pick in Mays draft on a quarterback. The team used the pick on defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick is listed as the Texans starter under centre this season. Gronk Playing it Safe New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski practiced on Thursday with a brace on surgically repaired knee and a protective sleeve on his twice-broken right arm. Gronkowski underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL on January 9 and has yet to take place in any team drills at training camp. However, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston, Gronkowski was running, cutting and planting without reluctance on Thursday. He also spent time catching passes from quarterback Tom Brady after practice. In seven games with the Patriots in 2013, Gronkowski had 39 catches for 592 yards and four touchdowns. Stephen Hauschka Jersey . They are back to a game above .500 on the year and back to .500 on the road. It was their 10th extra time game of the year, and only the second one that did not got to a shootout. Zay Jones Jersey .J. -- Pete Carroll said it was the suspension of linebacker Bruce Irvin last spring that finally got the attention of the rest of the Seattle Seahawks that they needed to be taking their commitment to the team more seriously. http://www.authenticbillsfanatic.com/c- ... ersey.aspx. Pospisil, whose season-ending goal is to improve his ATP Tour ranking enough to qualify for one of the 32 seedings at Januarys Australian Open, dominated Karlovic in 59 minutes. The world No. 40 never faced a break point and limited the big mans threatening ace count to a mere eight, while striking five key aces of his own. Marcell Dareus Jersey . The punch happened in the fourth quarter of Milwaukees 116-102 loss to the Kings on Wednesday when the two players became entangled while battling for rebounding position. Cordy Glenn Jersey . The Kings paraded the Stanley Cup through downtown Los Angeles on Monday to celebrate their second NHL title in three seasons.LONDON - In the NBAs efforts to grow its popularity in Europe, it may have picked up a way of also boosting revenues back home.Commissioner Adam Silver said Wednesday it is inevitable that the league will one day take after European sports and have sponsor names on team jerseys.Thats standard practice for international sports teams, for which selling advertising space on their shirts is a main source of income.With the NBA back in London this week for its annual regular-season game, Silver said thats something the league could copy — even if some fans would find it jarring.Exactly when its going to come, Im not sure, but I do think its inevitable in our sport, Silver said ahead of Thursdays game between the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks at Londons O2 Arena.Mainly because I travel so much and I see the model work so successfully here. I think that as we look to generate other forms of revenue and also as we listen to the marketplace, the companies that are involved with the NBA want to get closer to the game, want to get closer to our players.It could be a while before it happens, though, as its still unclear how the financial details of such a system would work. For instance, the league would want to spread the revvenue fairly equally, even though some teams could probably charge more than others.ddddddddddddIts less a function of purists who oppose it and say the shirt should be clean, he said. Its more a function of figuring out the right economic model.While the NBA is still only playing one game a year in London — unlike the NFL which has expanded to three — Silver said the leagues ultimate vision remains the same: to have a division of four full-fledged franchises in Europe one day. Such plans were first voiced by his predecessor, David Stern, and Silver said any expansion is still years down the road.The NFL has long discussed the option of having a London-based franchise, but Silver said an NBA expansion into Europe would require several teams because of the travelling logistics. That way, visiting teams could play a number of games on one road trip overseas.We would have to in essence put both feet down in Europe if we were going to expand, and that would mean probably having four franchises in Europe, he said.But were not there yet. As much as growth as weve seen, we have a long way to go before we can sustain four franchises in Europe. ... On the other hand, I believe its our manifest destiny to expand.
