Third-year review on Lions’ 2015 draft: Not good

It’s often said you don’t know what you have with an NFL draft class until three years have passed. With that in mind, and sticking to an annual tradition, I’ve re-evaluated the Detroit Lions’ draft from three years ago, prior to the upcoming round of rookies being added to the roster.

After another disappointing training camp last year, he was traded to the San Francisco 49ers for a fifth-round pick in 2019.

Abdullah’s best season was his rookie year, when he led the team in yards from scrimmage. Working in tandem with Joique Bell, Abdullah averaged 4.2 yards per carry, caught 25 passes and was one of the league’s better kickoff returners.

He appeared primed for a breakout in 2016, but a Week 2 foot injury prematurely ended his season. And when he returned last year as the featured back in the rotation, he struggled in the role. Despite flashing some big-play ability, his efficiency bottomed out at 3.3 yards per attempt. Even if given the benefit of the doubt because of inferior blocking and play-calling, the results weren’t good enough.

The game was preceded by a moment of silence to remember the lives of Erin Popovich, the wife of San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich, and former first lady Barbara Bush. 76ers coach Brett Brown is a former a Spurs assistant who has remained close with the Popovich family, and said Erin Popovich was a star, like a real star. A very strong woman, and somebody that will be missed.

Among those in the sold-out crowd were former Heat point guards Mario Chalmers and Jason Williams, the starters on Miami’s three NBA championship teams. Both got warm ovations when shown on the videoboards around the arena.

That message was underscored by the Seattle Seahawks’ decision to sign a quarterback with no experience instead of keeping a scheduled meeting with Kaepernick after he reportedly didn’t declare he would no longer protest. The former 49ers quarterback, who led the team to the Super Bowl and came within a play of winning the title, has not been in trouble with the law.

The Wisconsin product was just that Saturday, however, as he scored a career-high 30 points while making the start for ill Ryan Anderson.

Brandon Jennings admits Carmelo Anthony trade rumors ‘took a toll’ on Knicks

A few months ago, Brandon Jennings asked the Knicks to release him because he wanted to play for a contender. Shortly after, he signed with the Wizards, and it’s been a great move. He’s averaging about 10 fewer minutes in Washington, but he was able to walk away from the dysfunction in New York and he’s now on a playoff-bound team.

Thursday night, he faced the franchise that he played for earlier this season and won. Now that he’s gone from the Knicks, he is able to speak candidly about what went wrong. On Thursday, he blamed Phil Jackson and the front office for putting trade rumors out there about Carmelo Anthony.

“Everything was hitting your phone about Melo leaving,” Jennings said, via the New York Times. “It definitely took a toll on the team, too. Because it wasn’t even about basketball anymore. It was more about what’s going on with Melo.”

The NCAA noted in announcing that decision earlier this week that it was doing so “reluctantly,” as it considers the replacement measure signed last week by new Gov. Roy Cooper “far from perfect.”

Silver’s aim appears to be turning the issue on its head via the international spotlight the NBA All-Star Game brings with it.

“An All-Star Game in Charlotte could be a powerful way to display our values of inclusion,” Silver said Friday, via the Charlotte Business Journal. “It’s not a done deal yet. We now need to go back to Charlotte Nike NFL Jerseys Supply бн and develop an anti-discrimination policy as part of our festivities.”

The 2017 game was relocated to New Orleans and the 2018 edition is Personalized Cheap Jerseys slated for Los Angeles, so 2019 is the next opportunity for Charlotte, but all signs point to it getting done and Silver indicated a decision would be coming soon.
