Ray Allen Jersey Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said he thinks he will be back for the 2018 season and has had positive and productive talks with owner Bob McNair about signing a contract extension during this offseason.

O’Brien reiterated that he enjoys being the head coach of the Texans and said he and the McNairs are having positive meetings about any changes that the organization will make in Smith’s absence. O’Brien repeated that the discussions are ongoing and that he is not yet sure how the organization will approach the upcoming season in the front office.

From what I heard, he said we were talking trash during the game, and he felt bad about what happened during the game, and he tried to contact me, said Brown, who had a tackle and a pass breakup in Alabama’s win. It didn’t happen. That didn’t happen at all. … That was a complete lie. But like I said, I appreciate it. I love it.

Brown also referred to the tombstone Clemson placed near its football complex to commemorate the win over Alabama in last season’s title game. Clemson displays similar tombstones for its top victories.

Cowboys TE Jason Witten says he’s ‘coming back’ for 16th season

Over the final few weeks of the season, Jason Witten kept the possibility of not returning to the Dallas Cowboys for a 16th season open.

After Sunday’s 6-0 win against the Philadelphia Eagles, Witten ended any doubt.

“Oh, I’m back,” Witten said. “I’m coming back. I love playing this game too much and I know that I can play it at a high level.”

By returning in 2018, Witten will have more service time with the Cowboys than any player in team history. Ed “Too Tall” Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei each played 15 seasons with the Cowboys. Witten is already the team leader in most games played (239), most consecutive games played (235), most games started (229) and most consecutive games started (179).

“You take that player that has this big history of addiction and you put him in a locker room with a bunch of 20-year-olds and early 30-year-olds, let’s be honest, pro football players like to party, they like to go out and drink and that’s powerful and it’s difficult and it’s going to take a lot of self-control and discipline on Josh’s part to not slide back into that lifestyle.”

When we looked at it, rather than take a on it being still there and lingering or exacerbating training camp, we thought go ahead and get it done,” owner Jones said.went Canaan.There is no clear halfway point of the season anymore, of course, so I went with the first and last eight for each player.Maybe their scouts think he’ll become a right-handed Hernandez at first.

Coming into 2017, expectations had never been higher for the Atlanta Falcons.

They just came off of a Super Bowl loss that you might have heard something about 锟斤拷 a blown lead of some sorts, but shook it off with a 3-0 start. Then the struggles returned.

The offense looked stagnant under the team’s new offensive coordinator, Steve Sarkisian. Julio Jones wasn’t getting much action, losses to the Bills and Dolphins at home made frustrations grow, and a Super Bowl rematch shellacking against the Patriots brought that panic to a boil. The struggles left fans wishing for Kyle Shanahan back.

However, the Falcons have cooled off that boil the past couple of Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey weeks. They beat the Seahawks on Monday night in Week 11 on the road, and handled the Buccaneers 34-20 this past Sunday. While they’ve shown flashes of 2016 in their offense, there’s still that sense of a game never being over in the air. That’s typical Falcons, and fine.

Jared Goff, Carson Wentz ‘excited’ to play each other for first time

Jared Goff and Carson Wentz will forever be linked as the top two picks in the 2016 NFL Draft.

They’ll share the field for the first time on Sunday when the Eagles take on the Rams at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Sam Hubbard, DE, Ohio State — Michigan linebacker Mike McCray is one of the nation’s best linebackers and had 10 tackles Saturday against the Buckeyes, but Hubbard might have been the best defensive player on the field at Michigan Stadium. The 6-5, 265-pound junior had 2 1/2 sacks and 2 1/2 tackles for loss to lead Ohio State’s defense in a 31-20 win over the Wolverines.

Steve Ishmael, WR, Syracuse — Despite a 42-14 loss to Boston College, Ishmael had a huge day. The 6-2, 209-pound senior caught 11 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown to go over 100 receptions on the season. Ishmael has had a great season in spite of inconsistent quarterback play and his skill set should translate to the NFL.

Riding an eight-game winning streak, the Vikings head to Charlotte this week to face a hungry Panthers team fresh off a loss against the Saints.

Minnesota (10-2) joined the Eagles atop the NFC standings last week when Philadelphia struggled against the Seahawks. Case Keenum has been a revelation for the Vikings since taking over for Sam Bradford, and the elevation of wide receiver Adam Thielen into true No. 1 status has helped the offense improve.

Not only have the Vikings won five straight road games, but they have also won eight of their 13 meetings all-time with the Panthers (8-4).

Colts’ Chuck Pagano says uncertain job status ‘all I’ve known’

Said Cardinals chairman and CEO Bill DeWitt Jr.: “We had an agreement to acquire Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins, subject to him waiving his no-trade clause. While we are disappointed in his decision, we will continue to make every effort to improve our club for the upcoming season.”

“My foot is only getting better,” Griffen said. “My plantar fasciitis is going to heal after three weeks, I played after three weeks, so it heals over time. I’m just getting better.”

One key to bouncing back so quickly is the defensive end’s weekly rehabilitation routine, which appears to have the demands of a full-time job. Griffen uses a hyperbaric chamber, acupuncture, cryotherapy and massages to help his body recover from a game while preparing for the next week.

Cooper suffered a concussion and an ankle injury on the same play in Week 12 and sat out the following week as a result. There was good news early this week when Cooper was cleared of the concussion protocol, but he remained limited in his return to practice on Friday. Cooper did not speak to reporters after practice, and coach Jack del Rio was not offering any hints as to his status.

Amari Cooper’s return to action was short-lived.

The Raiders wide receiver left Sunday’s game against the Chiefs and is questionable to return with an ankle injury, the team announced.

Cooper suffered the injury when his left ankle got rolled up at the end of a play during the second quarter.

Cooper was listed as questionable entering Week 14, and the team spent most of the week suspecting he would sit out Sunday’s game. He missed last week’s win over the Giants with a concussion and a sprained ankle, but cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol Wednesday and practiced on a limited basis Friday.

Cooper, 23, has 42 catches for 499 yards and five touchdowns this season. He did not have a catch in Sunday’s game as the Chiefs held a 16-0 halftime lead. orioles_043
