and son bet dinner on the outcome of their Week 7 ga

CARMEL, Ind. Tyson Ross Jersey . -- The man who has been most closely tied to Tiger Woods as a rival over the past two decades was thrilled to hear Wednesday that Woods is hoping to return to competitive golf next month.Phil Mickelson wasnt aware of Woods announcement until told during the BMW Championship pro-am at Crooked Stick Golf Club.Woods announced Wednesday that he hopes to return at the Safeway Open in Napa, California, which is two weeks after the Ryder Cup. Mickelson is also playing the Safeway tournament, which is the first event of the PGA Tours 2016-17 season. Additionally, Woods said he hopes to play a European Tour event in Turkey as well as the Hero World Challenge before the end of the year.I think its great; I dont know the state of his health. I havent seen him, Mickelson said. Im looking forward to spending time with him at the Ryder Cup. I think thatll be great motivation for him. Plus, hell have a week off.Im hoping we can get paired together (at the Safeway Open.) That would be really fun. I would love it. Its great to have him back, and hopefully hes physically able to practice the way he needs.Woods, 40, will be a vice captain for Davis Love III at Hazeltine National, site of the Ryder Cup where Mickelson, 46, will be a member of the U.S. team for the 11th consecutive time.Mickelson feels the experience will be good for Woods and likened it to what Sergio Garcia did in 2010 when he didnt make the European team but was named a vice captain by Colin Montgomerie at a time when Garcias game was in decline.Just like it did for Sergio years ago when he was a vice captain, it was kind of a motivating factor for him, Mickelson said. Hopefully itll be the same for Tiger when he comes back out.Mickelson, who finished second at The Open to Henrik Stenson in July, is ranked 13th in the world. All but nine of his 42 PGA Tour victories -- and each of his five major championships -- have come during the Woods era.Were always going to have high expectations because the guy is arguably one of the two greatest players in history, if not the greatest, said Mickelson of Woods, who has 79 PGA Tour titles, including 14 majors. Our expectations of him will always be high. It doesnt mean given all the health issues and challenges that hes faced ... it doesnt mean thats fair. Hunter Renfroe Jersey . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. Jose Pirela Jersey . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. Topics this week include players who could move at the trade deadline, Matthew Staffords resurgence under Jim Bob Cooter, Teddy Bridgewaters prognosis of a full recovery, and more.Will any teams make deals at the trade deadline?Coming up Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET is the NFLs trade deadline, where theres usually more speculation than action.Some of the names likely to come up between now and then include San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley and wide receiver Torrey Smith, Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, and maybe even Cleveland Browns cornerbacks Joe Haden and Tramon Williams.But coach Hue Jackson stomped on any speculation the Browns would be willing to move offensive tackle Joe Thomas.We are not going to trade Joe Thomas, Jackson said this week. Joe Thomas has a lot to do with what were trying to accomplish here in the future.As usual, players whose names emerge as available are on struggling teams. It makes sense for those teams to try to recoup compensation now. The truth is, these players can be traded after this season as well, giving teams an avenue to receive compensation while still getting the players services for the remainder of this season. It is one of the many reasons NFL trades are difficult to consummate.Another factor is that a wide receiver would have to come in and learn another teams offense and playbook at midseason, which isnt an easy task.Then there are the salary-cap issues. Even though the Vikings could use more help along the offensive line, they only have more than a half-million worth of salary-cap space, making a deal for an offensive tackle financially challenging.Just last week, a 49ers official insisted the team would not trade Staley. The Browns have adopted the same stance with Thomas and other players, even though some teams believe there are Cleveland players available in a trade. Teams trading players typically want a lot back in return, as they should. It all makes deals rare and challenging.Theres a new breed of NFL general managers who are young, aggressive and daring. The hope would be that they will stimulate the usually dormant trade market. But the chances are, beyond a potential trade of Smith, it wont. There usually is more talk than action.-- Adam SchefterLions wont break up the Stafford-Cooter relationshipDetroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford entered the NFL with a golden arm but a ton of skeptics. Before ever throwing a pass, he had signed a six-year, $72 million contract as the top pick of the 2009 draft. That included $41.7 million in guarantees.The same skeptics cringed when the Lions, looking for salary-cap relief, renegotiated Staffords rookie deal and signed him to a three-year extension for $53 million and an additional $41.5 million guaranteed in 2013.Maybe its time to get over it. Stafford will be just 29 years old when the current contract expires at the end of the 2017 season. It is very?realistic to expect Stafford has at least two mega contracts yet to be signed.And, yes, earned.On Sunday, Stafford punctuated his 100th game with an 18-yard strike to Anquan Boldin to beat the Washington Redskins 20-17. It was his 24th game-winning drive since entering the NFL.Stafford also has thrown for more yards (27,890) than any quarterback in his first 100 games. That might not earn him the highest accolades, but there is newfound respect around the league as he thrives in his first season without Calvin Johnson, one of the dominant receivers of this era. Stafford is arguably having his best season, and it is well documented that everything has clicked with offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, who got the job after the team fired Joe Lombardi 16 games ago during the 2015 season.Cooter is?only 32 years old, so he will probably remain as Staffords playcaller for a few more years. Talk of Jim Caldwell being replaced as head coach has quieted since the team has put together a three-game winning streak, but even if he is, most league executives believe Lions general manager Bob Quinn probably would consider Patriots?defensive coordinator Matt Patricia over Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniel as the replacement. There is no rush to break up the Stafford and Cooter partnership.Stafford will have to win more games and have playoff success to earn universal praise, but in an era when many of the leagues best quarterbacks are aging (see Tom Brady, 39, and Drew Brees, 37), Stafford should have ample time to build a compelling portfolio by the time he is done playing.-- Chris MortensenNo guarantees on Bridgewaters return to the fieldNearly two months after he dislocated his knee, Minnesota quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is making strides in his recovery, and Vikings officials are pleased with his progress. But other doctors around the league know there are no guarantees Bridgewater will be able to return to the type of quarterback he was, if he makes it back to the NFL at all.If he didnt make it back, it wouldnt surprise me, one doctor who has worked with NFL teams said last week, echoing the sentiment of other medical officials in and outside the league. This is a bad injury, about the worst knee injury a player can have.It is an injury that prematurely ended the NFL careers of former Patriots running back Robert Edwards, former Raiders running back Napoleon McCallum and former 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore.Bridgewater does not play running back, and he does have other advantages. He did not suffer nerve damage in his knee, he did undergo successful surgery, he is only 23 years old and he has a great attitude and fighting spirit. Bridgewater also has an awful lot of people pulling for him and hoping he can make it back.-- Adam SchefterDont expect more change in NFLs overtime rulesSeahawks coach Pete Carroll understood where his quarterback, Russell Wilson, was coming from after the 6-6 tie between Seattle and Arizona on Sunday night, a game in which the Cardinals?Chandler?Catanzaro and the Seahawks?Steven Hauschka?left everyone scratching their heads with horrible missed field goal attempts in overtime.Wilson proposed that the team that wins the coin flip gets one shot at a 35-yard field goal. Make or miss, the game is over. Make it, you win. Miss it, you lose.?I dont think that one will fly, Carroll said, chuckling. Russells point is lets not have tie games. Its weirrd to play that hard and that long in a meaningful game and walk off the field without winning or losing. Craig Stammen Jersey. .Wilsons idea might have been birthed in the teams competitive practices. Carroll explained, Well end a standoff where we have our nose tackle will kick for our defense and the center will kick for the offense. Or, we have a lot of shoot-offs that are fun and competitive like that. We always want a winner or loser.Carroll himself did not have a specific proposal for overtime. When the league was debating a solution to the former overtime rule at the owners meeting a few years back, Carroll told his peers behind closed doors that he did not like college OT rules. He had just?returned to the NFL after a successful run at USC.?I cant even remember now why I didnt like the college rule, Carroll said. I just know I do like a sudden-death aspect in overtime.The NFLs modified overtime rules come with exceptions to sudden death. Each team gets the opportunity to possess the ball unless the first possession results in a touchdown or a safety. Otherwise, after the first possession, any score ends the game.?Carroll wonders why teams cant just keep playing until one side wins the game, but concerns about player safety are a higher priority. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said his players were spent to the point where they would not have been able to play anymore after the 15-minute overtime.There have been only six ties since 2000. Thats probably not enough to generate real change.-- Chris MortensenChicago, Cleveland are baseballs best but among footballs worstThe Cubs and Indians have lost a combined six games this postseason -- including two while facing each other in the World Series -- which is as many or less than the number of games the 1-6 Bears and 0-7 Browns each have lost seven weeks into this NFL regular season.Chicago and Cleveland are celebrating their baseball achievements, which allows those cities to overlook their football disappointments.Chicago is a team in transition at the most important position in sports. Jay Cutler injured his thumb, Brian Hoyer broke his wrist and is expected to miss the remainder of the season, and now it looks as if Cutler will get another turn Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings, which amounts to an audition for another NFL team.The Bears are widely expected to move on from Cutler after this season, one way or another, whether that means trading or releasing him. Moving on from Cutler will free up $13 million in salary-cap space, though Chicago will have to use a good part of that to find another starting quarterback.?As for the Browns, while they are not winning, what they are accomplishing actually is impressive. Despite having 19 rookies on the 53-man roster, despite having six players attempt passes this season and deploying four starting quarterbacks, despite playing five of its first seven games on the road this season, Cleveland has been a tough out for every team except New England. Each week the Browns play tough, smart and feisty, no matter whos at quarterback.Rookie quarterback Cody Kessler, who has battled shoulder injuries and a concussion, has been productive. Clevelands running game has been powerful. The team has been very well coached, even if its record doesnt reflect it.Even though the Browns are back home Sunday to play the New York Jets, there are other obstacles on the horizon. Clevelands bye does not come until Week 13, the latest bye of the season, a challenge for a rookie-laden roster. By then, those players have been used to having their football seasons over. Clevelands rookies will have to re-program their bodies for one final stretch in a lost season.It will be the final challenge in a season full of adversity for the great baseball cities but struggling football cities.-- Adam SchefterEmptying out the notebookESPNs fantasy football domain adapted this week to make?Ty Montgomery?of the Packers eligible as both a running back and wide receiver as he takes backfield snaps while the Packers work through injuries. Some real football inquiries even surfaced as to whether Montgomery would?have to change his jersey number 88 to a running back number (20-49). Thats not the case. The rules that govern player jersey numbers do not require a change if an offense-eligible player has participated at his position at?least one season.?Montgomery did that as a rookie receiver in 2015.Midway through the NFL season, most people would not be able to name the NFLs leading tackler. Carolinas Luke Kuechly? Arizonas Deone Bucannon? The New York Giants Landon Collins? How about Buffalo linebacker Zach Brown, who now is the leagues leading tackler and a player who once again will need to come up big Sunday against the New England Patriots. A former Titans linebacker, Brown signed a one-year deal with Buffalo in April, and it has looked like one of the top offseason acquisitions.In case you missed it, ESPN NFL analyst Bill Polian, who once was the driving force on the NFLs competition committee, said he expects more discussion in the offseason to enable teams to bring more than one player back from their injured reserve list during a season. There has been some concern expressed about teams?stashing young players on the list, but a current competition committee member says that further expansion of practice squads with safeguards could be one component to more liberal IR rules.After the Lions 20-17 win last week, Washington offensive line coach Bill Callahan now owes his son Brian, who is Detroits quarterbacks coach, dinner at this winters scouting combine in Indianapolis. The father and son bet dinner on the outcome of their Week 7 game. Detroit won, which means dads buying again.Yes, some teams were concerned about Jay?Ajayis knee when he was coming out of Boise State, which is part of the reason he fell to the Dolphins in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. After Ajayi rushed for his second straight 200-yard game, a veteran scout who had a higher grade on Ajayi offered a reminder: Anyone who worries about longevity in a running back is ignoring the obvious -- running back is not a position where longevity can be expected.-- Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter Youth NFL Jerseys CheapWholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys White NFL Jerseys Cheap Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys ' ' '
