Aston Martin releasing ‘Tom Brady’ version of Vanquish S

New England lost one of its top corners hours after it signed Gilmore. Ryan’s departure should make it easier for the Pats to keep restricted free agent Malcolm Butler. Tennessee desperately needed this kind of corner and got a good value on Ryan.

San Francisco needed receivers of any kind after it moved on from Torrey Smith. Garcon is on the other side of 30, but he’s a solid route-runner and blocker with good hands who’ll be a good No. 2 glue guy for whoever the 49ers anoint as their true go-to, big-play guy outside.

Tom Brady has agreed to an endorsement deal with Aston Martin that will have him driving around in a DB 11 that is worth some $211,995.

Elite Womens T.J. Carrie Jersey Brady has already been one for unique endorsements as he is signed up with UGG Australia and has a meal service with Purple Carrot, but this one has another brand of exclusivity that only the five-time Super Bowl Champion could merit.

Womens Eric Decker Jersey We’re looking for partnerships that make the brand resonate and to make sure people know who we are, Aston Martin’s North American president Laura Schwab told ESPN’s Darren Rovell. Tom and Aston Martin are similarly aligned in their path to excellence.

Aston Martin will also be releasing Brady’s own exclusive line of Vanquish S models that the New England Patriot customized for himself. Only 12 of those will be made and sold.

That was just me, young and dumb, is how I say it, Mauk told Sporting News. I made some mistakes. I was viewed as one of the best in the SEC, doing all that. I wish I could go back, surround myself with better people 鈥?people who want to see me succeed and not just get something from me.

Kevin Durant doesn’t ‘give a damn about no damn Drake Night’

Kevin Durant and Drake are friends. Drake even talked about how glad he was that Durant’s free agency decision made him happy. None of that matters when it comes to the results on the court, however.

The Toronto Raptors hosted the Warriors on Michael Jordan Authentic Womens Jersey Wednesday, and Drake was there to celebrate “Drake Night,” a now-annual tradition. That led to some friendly trash talk during the game. Or at least it seemed friendly.

First, Drake bumped into Durant during the middle of Durant’s interview. It didn’t seem like a coincidence. Durant certainly didn’t seem to think so judging by the death stare he shot at Drake.

The real kicker came later, when Durant was asked about the interaction he had with Drake on Drake Night.

The Rockets now sit at a cool 7-5 record, trapped in a four-way tie for fourth place in the Western Conference. And Harden is on pace to seriously compete for that coveted NBA Most Valuable Player award.

Jabari Parker does his best Kobe Bryant impersonation
Remember when Kobe wore No. 8 and was dunking all over people like a maxed-out NBA 2K17 MyPlayer with the game sliders on 100? If you don’t, here’s a friendly reminder as to why he’s a first ballot Hall of Famer.

Well, Jabari Parker certainly remembers these days. And as a tribute to the retired Mamba, Parker brought the house down with silky smooth transition finish Bryant would approve of.

Maybe Parker was trying to one-up his teammate, Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had his own Mike Dunleavy Authentic Womens Jersey highlight-reel jam Wednesday night.

Somehow, with all that talent, the Bucks (5-6) lost to a Miami Heat team (3-8) lacking a go-to option on offense.

Harden notched his third triple-double on the season, continuing to chase Hall of Famers Oscar Robertson and Tiny Archibald, the only players to average 30 points and 10 assists in a season. Through 12 games, Harden is at 28.7 points, 12.6 assists and 7.8 rebounds per game with a Player Efficiency Rating of 30.3.

Did we mention he can dance, too?

“I don’t give a damn about no damn Drake Night.”

Carson Wentz did enough to beat the Bears 29-14 and get the Eagles to 2-0

Carson Wentz followed his exceptional Week 1 performance in Philadelphia’s win over the Cleveland Browns with another solid showing as the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Chicago Bears with a final score of 29-14 on Monday Night Football.

Since 2012, each rookie Jeremiah Attaochu Jersey quarterback who started an NFL game in Week 1 regressed at least somewhat in their Week 2 performance. The same was true for Wentz, but he still played well enough to help the Eagles secure the victory.

Wentz completed 21 of 34 passes for 190 yards and one touchdown, which was a statistical decline from his Week 1 effort of 278 yards and two touchdowns. Still, Wentz’s performance was enough to get the job done despite taking a couple of Joe Barksdale Jersey big hits from Chicago’s defense.

Unfortunately, Minnesota’s defensive aggression also showed in the number of penalties it committed, which was a disadvantage for the Vikings. In the first quarter, Minnesota cornerback Terence Newman was flagged for a defensive pass interference penalty that gave the Packers 40 yards. Just one play later he was penalized again for defensive holding.

The Vikings kept rolling despite injuries to quarterback Sam Bradford, who returned to the game with a bruise on his non-throwing hand, and running back Adrian Peterson, who was ruled out of the game with a knee injury. Green Bay had been very successful in containing Peterson, limiting him to just 19 yards on 12 carries.

Despite the injury, Bradford finished the game with 286 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. It was the most passing yards by any starting Vikings quarterback in their debut with the team.

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs was also fundamentally important to Minnesota’s offensive success. Diggs contributed 182 receiving yards and one touchdown.

If the Vikings keep playing like this, especially on defense, they’ll certainly be able to hold their own.

Lindbohm earned his first NHL point

Menu Los, CA – Jeff, Muzzin and each scored the third period, as the Los Kings rallied to beat the St. Blues 6 on Thursday night. The Kings surrendered four goals the third period of Tuesday’s 5 loss at St., but Ed Davis Jersey earned a split the home-and-home set with their own third- period surge. Anze Kopitar had a goal and four assists for a career-high five points against the Blues. registered three assists and Gaborik scored twice and set up another one for the Kings, who put an end to a three-game losing streak. Jonathan Quick finished with 24 saves the Kings’ 11th straight win over the Blues at Staples Center. Backes, Dmitrij Jaskin and Shattenkirk scored a 2 span the first period for St., which had a five-game winning streak snapped. We were careless at times and that’s a big part of it, said Blues coach Hitchcock. We did a really poor job of managing the puck as the game went on we turned it into a track meet. Martin Brodeur was beaten six times on 37 shots. scored off a feed from Kopitar on a 2-on-1 seconds into the third to tie it up at 4. It was his first goal 14. The Kings, who earlier erased a 3 deficit, grabbed the lead on a power play. Muzzin lined up for a shot but pulled Elgin Baylor Jersey it back when Blues defenseman Bouwmeester went down to block. He then skated around Bouwmeester and fired a wrist shot from the left circle past Brodeur at 8. Los went up 6 when ‘s dump- from center ice hopped over Brodeur with 7 remaining. Some other teams would probably pack it after the 3, but not this team. We have a lot of character, Kopitar said. Backes opened the scoring with 6 remaining the first when he deflected Bouwmeester’s point shot on a power play. Jaskin, who was recalled from Chicago of the American Hockey League on Wednesday, used his stick blade to alter the path of Petteri Lindbohm’s shot 71 seconds later. Shattenkirk one-timed Alexander Steen’s pass behind Quick for a power-play goal with four minutes left. Los began the comeback with a power-play goal of its own. Gaborik scored with 2 to go the first after Brodeur poked checked the puck away from. Kopitar came as a trailer on a rush, collected Gaborik’s pass and fired a wrist shot under the blocker of Brodeur at 6 of the second period. Gaborik scored six seconds into a power play to make it 3. Gaborik went to the front of the net after a faceoff and was struck by Drew Doughty’s deflected point shot. He gathered the puck and swept it past Brodeur with 4 remaining the second. Just 36 seconds later, Jori Lehtera took a feed from Vladimir Tarasenko and beat Quick with a backhand. Game Notes Gaborik has five goals the last three… Los hasn’t lost at home to St. since 17… Kings forward Trevor played his 300th career game… Jaskin filled the roster spot created by Jaden Schwartz’s placement on injured reserve. Schwartz is termed as week-to-week with a right foot injury suffered against the Kings on Tuesday… Lindbohm earned his first NHL point.

Menu Jimmy is emerging as one of the best two-way players the. Chris Humphreys USA Today Sports Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy had an extremely rough childhood, and during his rise to stardom, he’s made a point of not dwelling on it or living the uncomfortable past. a recent interview with, claims to have much distaste for his past that he physically removed the rearview mirror from his vehicle just to make sure he never looks back. Still, he loathes reliving the past — much that he has removed the rearview mirror on his car as a symbolic reminder to never look back. His coach at Marquette University, Buzz, says was sensitive about his upbringing that he swore to secrecy while playing for him. When I ask why he hates talking about the past much, shifts uncomfortably on the sectional the grand San Diego house. It’s because I don’t ever want that to define me, he says. I hated it whenever it came up because that’s all anybody ever wanted to talk about. Like, that hasn’t gotten me to where I am today. I’m a great basketball player because of my work. I’m a good basketball player because of the people I have around me. And if I continue to be stuck the past, then I won’t get any better. I won’t change, I’ll get stuck as that kid. That’s not who I am. I’m far ahead of that. I don’t hold grudges. I still talk to my family. My mom. My father. We each other. That’s never going to change. fact, the day I visited, his father was staying with him. There’s a strong possibility was joking here, and trying to make a point about just how focused he is on the present and the future. After all, is it even legal to drive around the Chicago area without a rearview mirror firmly place? Either way, it’s clear that has emerged as the Bulls’ best player by focusing on the here and now.

He’s familiar with us. We’ve not had a discussion

PHOENIX — With the recent hiring of Molitor as manager, the Twins are looking for a bevy of coaches to fill out the staff. As it turns out, general manager Terry have a pitching coach right under the club’s own umbrella: fellow Hall of Famer Bert Blyleven. The always funny and loquacious Blyleven has been a Twins broadcaster since 1996. He entered the Hall 2011, his 14th year on the ballot. And during his 22-year League career, Blyleven played 11 seasons two stints for the Twins, inclusive of the 1987 team that defeated the Cardinals a seven-game World Series. Talk about homegrown talent., who is looking for everything except a hitting Wayne Gretzky Jersey coach at this point, wouldn’t discount the possibility of examining Blyleven. Everybody is fair game, I think. I ‘t think I should eliminate anybody, frankly, said on Tuesday during a media session at the General Managers Meetings.

He’s familiar with us. We’ve not had a discussion, but I’m not saying we won’t. We have a lot of guys who are interested this job. But there Amir Johnson Jersey is only one Blyleven. The only native of The Netherlands the hallowed Hall, Blyleven has been the pitching coach for the the last two World Baseball Classics — 2009 and ’13. The last time, his squad surprised many and advanced as far as the semifinals at San Francisco’s &T Park where they lost to the eventual champion Dominican Republic. Blyleven also managed the World the Futures Game this past during All- Game activities at Target Field — a 3 loss to the U.S. Blyleven loved both experiences and said last July that, at 63, he’d love to jump out of the booth and regularly offer his expertise on the field. God bless you, he said. I’ve never been offered that, I enjoy what I do on the broadcast side, but I also enjoy the teaching part. I feel like I have a lot to offer, but I offer it on the air right now, that’s fun. We’re talking about something that’s not there. Perhaps the opportunity now be there. How often does anyone baseball management have the chance of pairing a manager who smacked out 3 hits 21 seasons for three teams, including the Twins, with a pitcher who struck out 3 batters, fifth on the all-time list? is bringing back hitting coach and another former Twin, Brunansky, but like long-time manager Gardenhire, pitching coach Rick went out the door after last ‘s disappointing 70 finish. The Twins haven’t had a winning or made the playoffs since 2010, averaging 96 losses a year since then., who survived last year’s very serious bout with throat cancer, is intent on recapturing the old glory of six playoff slots nine seasons from 2002 through 2010. He knows that filling these coaching jobs are important to that task. Even though we’ve struggled of late there’s a lot of interest being with this club, said.

We should be on the upside. Hopefully our worst days be behind us and we’ll move forward. Ironically, we have some pitching that we’re encouraged about that’s on the surface. So whoever is, it’s going to be important. pitching has been ‘s clarion call since he returned to replace the dethroned Bill Smith after a 99-loss 2011. This past, had great success re-tooling former Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes, a free-agent signee who went from a 4 for New 2013 to a 16 this past. How did Hughes do it? His dipped from 5 to 3 and his WHIP from 1 to 1. His control became impeccable. Hughes walked only 16 batters 209 3 innings. At first glance, the change of home venues from hitting-friendly Yankee Stadium to pitching-rich Target Field would seem to have been a huge contributing factor, but take note that Hughes’ splits were a shade better on the road then they were at home. Hughes had a nice year, there’s no question, said. Out of the people we went out and signed from the free-agent market, he certainly did everything on his part to help us get better. We’ve got to do a few things with a few others. Pitching is always our problem. We scored enough runs. Our defense is pretty decent. Around the diamond we have almost everybody back. Our starting rotation is a problem again. It’s put us a hole too often we need to take a look at that rotation. The question then becomes simple: is Blyleven the guy to help put Humpty Dumpty back together again? His resume is impressive: 287 wins, 242 complete 685 starts — 60 of them shutouts — over 4 innings. If anyone understands the nuances of teaching the of starting pitching, Blyleven does. He’s got a great personality and a great sense of humor, said. But he knows exactly when to put his thumb down on things as well. I talk to him? I ‘t know about that. I’m open to anything. I’ve got a lot of other guys who want, too. Ultimately, I have to make a decision on how fast to move forward.

Hillman is the latest prospect out of High

From on Hillman Comments: Hillman is the latest prospect out of High, which has produced big leaguer, supplemental first-round picks Winker and Weickel and first-rounder the last seven Drafts. is the half-brother of 2014 League stolen-base champion and of former All- closer, who also serves as Hillman’s guardian. Hillman has a live, athletic frame with a quick arm and projection remaining.

He has more feel than Clinton McDonald Jersey the typical prep pitcher and the potential for three solid-or-better pitches. The Central recruit show 89 mph fastball with some armside run early his outings. His curveball has nice shape and depth, and his changeup has some fade and deception. Once he fills out, he should add more power to his pitches and do a better job of maintaining his velocity deeper into. Round 3B MATHIAS AGE DOB: 19, Aug. 2 College: Cal Poly San Obispo BATS THROWS: R R HEIGHT WEIGHT: 6 185 Signed 6 Mathias, 19, recently completed his campaign at Cal Poly San Obispo, where he hit.356 with 7B, 3B, 1HR & 28RBI 47. The Fremont, California native had a banner sophomore year, hitting a team-leading.386 average on his way to Big West Conference Field Player of the Year honors. The right-hander’s preseason honors included first-team All-, second-team Baseball Preseason All- and second-team National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association All-. The 6 200-pound second D.J. Moore Jersey baseman underwent labrum surgery early December 2014 after injuring his shoulder playing for USA Baseball’s Collegiate National last. He was ranked as the 103rd best draft prospect by Baseball. From on Mathias There are a good amount of college middle infielders who can hit this year’s Draft class. While Mathias’ progress the field was held up by a labrum injury, he showed this that his ability to swing the bat generated plenty of interest.

Originally a shortstop, Mathias had to DH for much of 2015 as he recovered from his shoulder issue. His return to the field has come at second base, where he has the to be a fair defender. His arm continues to come back, but likely play no better than average. It be Mathias’ bat that get him drafted and him up organizational ladder. He has a very good approach at the plate, making consistently hard contact. of extra-base hit guy now, there is enough strength for some power the future. As he’s gotten bigger and stronger, he’s slowed down to average runner. College bats who perform always tend to do well, and a team seeing Mathias as everyday offensive-minded second baseman could take him the top few rounds. Round 4 SS KRIEGER AGE DOB: 21,. 16 College: Clemson University BATS THROWS: S R HEIGHT WEIGHT: 6 170 Signed 6 Krieger boasted the 2nd-highest average for the Clemson Tigers his, batting at a.339 clip, with 14 doubles, one triple, one home run and 41 RBI. The Johns Creek, native was a second-team All-ACC selection and a Shortstop-of-the-Year Award Watch List member as a sophomore, as he hit.338 with 49 runs, 18 doubles, 2 homers, and 32 RBI. Krieger was named a team co-captain for 2015 and was named a preseason first-team All-ACC by Perfect Game. The switch-hitter was also named the 11th-best preseason ACC prospect for the 2015 draft by Perfect Game. The switch-hitter was previously drafted the 35th round of the 2012 First Year MLB Draft by the Seattle Mariners. From on Krieger One of the better college hitters the Southeast, Krieger sprays line drives to all fields from both sides of the plate. He’s extremely patient and has some wiry strength to him, though his approach doesn’t lend itself to much power. A club that thinks Krieger can stick at shortstop could be tempted to pop him as high as the second round. But he spent almost the entire 2015 at DH, with only a handful of appearances at second base, as he recovered from offseason surgery to repair the labrum his throwing shoulder.

Justin Forsett says he’s still Ravens’ starting RB after ‘trial separation’

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens running back Justin Forsett said he will start in Sunday’s opener against the Buffalo Bills after coming back from what he humorously described as a trial separation.

Forsett, the Ravens’ leading rusher the past two seasons, confirmed Wednesday that his brief release from the team was part of a roster maneuver and said he has returned to his spot with the first-team offense.

“I’ll be lining up there as the starter as of now,” Forsett said. “It’s my job to go out there and try to dominate and make it clear for them.”

“I tried not to follow it, just because it was everywhere for so long,” Palmer said on a conference call with Patriots reporters. “I go back and you follow what the rule book says and you go about your business and you work, and if they tell you not to do it and then you get busted, and what happens happens, then you suffer the consequences.

Palmer and the Cardinals host the Patriots on Sunday night in the season-opening game for both teams. Jimmy Garoppolo will start at quarterback for the Patriots, with Brady serving a four-game NFL suspension as part of Deflategate penalties.

When Palmer was asked on the conference call if it was his perception that rules were broken, he said, “I don’t know, to be honest. Supposedly the balls went somewhere when they weren’t supposed to go there. There was humidity, or not enough humidity, or altitude or whatever it was. I don’t know. I didn’t follow the story. As soon as it came on, I just turned it off because I was so sick of hearing about it.

“Whatever the league comes down upon, and whatever ruling they make is what they make. You don’t have much of a decision after that. You can fight it for a little bit, but after a while, you just have to abide by what they say.”

Mularkey said he’s pleased with Henry’s work.

The fragile relationship between police and African-Americans is in deep crisis, anecdotally and statistically, and when Kaepernick expressed his awakening by refusing to stand for the national anthem, he and any peers considering similarly expressing themselves learned how society will respond to their citizenship and dissent: by using a playbook of distortion and misdirection as old and predictable as the Packer sweep.

Trevor Siemian named as Broncos’ starting QB

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Trevor Siemian will start at quarterback for the Denver Broncos in the Sept. 8 season opener against the Carolina Panthers, coach Gary Kubiak announced in a team meeting Monday morning.

Kubiak made the announcement just before the players broke off into position-group meetings.

“I think he’s earned the right to be our guy,” Kubiak said. “I go back and look at the body of work throughout the course of the offseason, watch training camp, throughout the preseason, how far he’s come. I watch how much he’s improved in my opinion, the grasp that he has with what we’re doing, to me he’s earned the right to go out there and be our starter.”

It is the next step in Siemian’s staggering offseason journey. The 2015 seventh-round pick — whose lone snap on the field last season was a kneel-down just before halftime in the Broncos’ Dec. 20 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers — will now succeed Peyton Manning.

The last time Siemian started a game, it was for Northwestern on Nov. 22, 2014 at Purdue.

“I need to get my ass out there on that field,” Ebron said Monday in his first comments since suffering a right ankle injury Aug. 6. “‘Cause I’m not a huge person that’s [into] watching. I like action. I like to be in action. It just sucks being on the sideline, man. It’s not my lifestyle. I wasn’t born for this. I wasn’t bred to do this, but I got to right now.”

Ebron said he and the Lions are taking things slowly as he recovers. That includes Ebron likely not playing in the preseason finale Thursday against the Buffalo Bills. Asked whether he would be out there in a game primarily used for backups and those trying to make one last roster push, he said, “Is Matt [Stafford] going to play on Thursday? You ain’t going to see Ebron if you don’t see Matt Stafford.”

The Panthers had been trying to hold Scifres out as he rehabbed offseason surgery on his left knee.

The Browns traded Lee three days after coach Hue Jackson jumped the 13-year veteran on the sideline for a lack of effort on trying to stop a return that went 73 yards for a touchdown.

“[It was] his pursuit. Let’s be very honest,” Jackson said after the game. “We’re out there to play. If there’s another guy that has the ball, your job is to go get it. The second time [on a long return] he did that, so that was improvement.

“That’s something to build on. The first time he understood in his conversation with me that’s not how we pursue it, and he made amends for that. So on we go.”

On Monday, the Browns moved on from Lee. And the Panthers found a huge missing piece to a puzzle they hope will result in a second straight trip to the Super Bowl.

Lee ranks sixth in the NFL all time in gross punting average (46.2 yards), eighth all time in net average (39.5) and ninth all time for punts inside the 20 (325).

He set Browns single-season records with a 46.7-yard gross average and 40.1-yard net average in 2015.

In 2011, Lee recorded the NFL’s second-best single-season net punting average (44.0). In 2007, he had 42 punts inside the 20, tied for third-best season in NFL history.

Lee also has ties to the Carolinas, growing up in Westminster, South Carolina, before playing collegiately at Pittsburgh.

U.S. Bank Stadium will elicit oohs and aahs, but at first, maybe some sighs

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins is expected to make his preseason debut Friday at the Washington Redskins, coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday.

Using the light rail was a sticking point for many of you who went to the initial events, and there figures to be plenty of foot traffic going to and from the light rail platform. Metro Transit will release its plans for Vikings game later this week, and it also plans to provide buses to several light rail stops other than the one outside the stadium. The Vikings app also has information on how to use Metro Transit on game days. Should you want to wait out the crowds somewhere other than a bar, the Downtown East Commons park to the west of the stadium has alcohol-free, family-friendly events on game days.

It’s also a good idea to reacquaint yourself with the NFL’s stadium baggage policy, which limits fans to clear tote bags or one-gallon Ziploc bags inside the stadium. And while we understand the glass doors make for a good photo opp, maybe you should limit the selfies for a few weeks to help with traffic flow. Your Instagram followers will still love you.

Ryan also expects outside linebacker Manny Lawson (pectoral) to make his preseason debut Friday.

The Bills could be without wide receiver Marquise Goodwin in Friday’s game after he left Tuesday’s practice with trainers and was placed in the NFL’s concussion protocol. Starting right tackle Jordan Mills (knee) and cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman (quad contusion) also left Tuesday’s practice, putting their status for the game in doubt.

Preseason game or not, that’s impressive.

Perhaps more impressive is that Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott didn’t even play in the game.

That changes Thursday against the Seattle Seahawks.

“I love him,” Dallas receiver Dez Bryant said of the Cowboys’ first-round pick. “I love the swag. He’s fierce, and I know he seems like he’s all chill and stuff, but he’s ready to get out there. He’s ready to go. He’s fired up. I’m ready to see him play. I’m ready to block for him because I know he’s going to do some amazing things for us. I’m ready to see that boy do his thing.”

Perhaps that is why Elliott has not been available for comment Sunday or Monday.
