Steelers move Ryan Shazier to PUP list

It was made clear some time ago that linebacker Ryan Shazier would not play during the 2018 season as he continues to recover from last year’s spinal injury, but he remained on the team’s roster until Wednesday.

That’s when the Steelers announced that they have moved Shazier to the reserve/physically unable to perform list. Shazier’s salary of $8.5 million for 2018 is guaranteed.

The move comes less than a week after Shazier walked on the stage in Dallas with the help of his fiancee to announce Pittsburgh’s first-round pick.

In Brady’s case, he would be able to be on the field with head coach Bill Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, and he’d be allowed to throw to teammates but he would not be working against any defensive players. In Phase Two – as is the case during Phase One – teams can specify two hours for players to be at the facility. The maximum time for a player to attend offseason activities is four hours per day, leaving players two hours to choose to workout however they see fit.

Teams need to make decisions on whether to exercise fifth-year options on 2015 first-round draft picks before Thursday and Bengals tackle Cedric Ogbuehi won’t be getting his picked up.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that the Bengals have opted not to go that route. The option, which is guaranteed for injury only, would set Ogbuehi up to make $9.625 million for the 2019 season.

When we picked him back in ’08, our feelings were we had to have a quarterback that could help us move in the right direction, coming off everything that went wrong with Vick, the GM continued.

And we felt like you could build around Matt Ryan, not thinking about him being around for three or four contracts, into his 30s. But it had to be a player like that, a player with his makeup on and off the field.broncos_087_2333ef8cbe0b56ff-180x180

Report: Free-agent RB Terrance West visiting Eagles

The Super Bowl champions haven’t finished reshaping their roster for the 2018 season.

Free-agent running back Terrance West visited the Eagles on Tuesday, per The Baltimore Sun.

This is West’s first known visit since free agency opened two months ago.

They’re going to go in the direction of Alvin Kamara anyway, clearly going to be their featured guy on offense, Rapoport said. But, obviously Mark Ingram is a nice one-two punch for Kamara and now they will not have him for the first four games of the 2018 season.

The Saints bolstered the running back group with the selection of Boston Scott in the sixth round (201st overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft. Daniel Lasco, Jonathan Williams and Trey Edmunds are also on the offseason roster.

His first solo shot left in a hurry, when turned around a 3-2 pitch into a screaming line drive into the left-field seats for his eighth of the season to lead off the second inning.

The designated hitter then went to right field in the bottom of the fourth inning for his ninth of the season and a 2-0 Yankees lead.

Stanton grounded out sharply to third base and walked in his final two plate appearances.

The Chicago-based company has been incorporating technology and performance-based data with its Wilson X Connected Football, which debuted two years ago. Now, Darnold and Palmer are helping develop the next-generation version that will enhance film sessions and, possibly, on-field production. I think it’s really cool to come out here with Wilson and give them my feedback on what it really takes to be a quarterback and what I’m looking for in this data, Darnold said in a video provided by Wilson, and help kind of build the prototype that is going to push this game to the next level.sharks-028
