Seahawks expecting a lot from Chris Carson after great offseason

The Seahawks drafted Rashaad Penny in the first round, but Chris Carson hasn’t let them forget about him.

Carson, a seventh-round pick in 2017, had 49 carries for 208 yards in the first four games before fracturing his leg and finishing on injured reserve.

Antonio Brown is the league’s highest paid receiver at $17 million annually, the result of a deal he signed in February 2017 after seeking a raise during the 2016 offseason. –Young quarterbacks are a hook for HBO’s Hard Knocks documentary series, and Baker Mayfield happens to be the hottest commodity in the rookie QB market as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, even though the Browns had previously acquired their intended starter — Tyrod Taylor — in a deal with the Buffalo Bills.That subplot figures to be a key storyline, and from Mayfield’s perspective, additional eyeballs on the Browns should be a positive.

I think he’s on schedule, Wilks said, via the team’s website. He feels real confident right now with how his knee feels. Again, we are doing a great job in-house with the trainers and strength and conditioning coach and getting him where he needs to be. I think from a mental standpoint, he’s feeling pretty good.

Wilks also said that they plan to ramp up Bradford’s work in the final week of the offseason program and identified different looks from a blitz standpoint and two-minute offense as areas that they hope to focus on with the veteran quarterback.

As for 49ers defensive end Cassius Marsh, I’m told he pitched a fit over playing time at halftime of the Patriots-Raiders game in Mexico City (he was in on two snaps that week), which contributed to his release days later.

Herbstreit: UM’s Maurice Hurst a ‘steal’ in NFL Draft

The way ESPN’s college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit sees it, Michigan All-American defensive tackle Maurice Hurst will be a steal in the upcoming NFL Draft.

It’s almost as if (players like Hurst) get forgotten, Herbstreit said. People better remember. Just turn the film on. He is a quick, he’s a little undersized but makes up for it with his quickness, and he’s a playmaker. We’ve got these big guys, inside guys, and I’m telling you, Mo Hurst will be one of those guys.

I don’t know where he’s going to go — my guess is somewhere in the first round — but he’s gonna be a guy next year everybody’s watching and he’s making plays in the backfield, and people are going to be going, ‘Who’s this guy?’ I think he’s slipping through the cracks and hopefully somebody, if he’s healthy and everything is OK, somebody is going to get a steal in my opinion with whoever picks him up.

A current player said Bryant told him, speaking of the Cowboys: They are going to wish they never let me go. 

NFL fans, and especially Cowboys fans, are going to find All or Nothing, the Amazon series on the Cowboys’ 2017 season, pretty fascinating. It comes out April 27, but I’ve watched the review copies.

Not to get too deep into this, but the best thing about it is access. Most teams hate these types of shows. The culture of football is still secretive, and teams want to shut down access instead of granting it.

These series are the opposite and give us a rare, and actually not too polished or phony, look at the Cowboys.

As you might guess, owner Jerry Jones is the star of the show.

Pat McAfee almost retired a year earlier than he did

Colts punter Pat McAfee surprised everyone a year ago by retiring early from the NFL. In a visit to Friday’s PFT Live, the Barstool Heartland personality explained that he nearly retired a year earlier.

Coach Chuck Pagano talked McAfee out of leaving after the 2015 season, during a flight back from an overseas USO Tour. After 2016, McAfee left even though his mortal enemy, G.M. Ryan Grigson, had finally been fired.

He just said that my tape from last year, the last game till now, that I’ve improved a significant amount, he said. Even from the last time he saw me in person till now, I got a lot bigger, faster, stronger, stuff like that. So they are gonna watch my tape as a staff and reach out tonight.

Devera already holds offers from five mid-majors — BUffalo, UMass, Old Dominion, Miami (Ohio) and Howerd — of which Miami of Ohio and Old Dominion stand out most. But there are other school also barking up the tree.

UNC, coach Baker from Rutgers wants me to come down there, Devera said. He says I’ll love it down there. Air Force too. Air Force is really close, and Kent State.

The end result is that the Eagles have their first-round pick (No. 32), a fourth-round pick from the Vikings in the Sam Bradford trade (No. 130), their fourth-round pick (No. 132), their fifth-round pick (No. 169), their sixth-round pick (No. 206), and three seventh-round picks (one from the Seahawks, their own, and a compensatory pick).

Absent further trades for example, a deal to send Nick Foles to another team, the Eagles will see 98 players drafted from when they’re on the clock to end Thursday night until they’re back on the clock on Saturday afternoon.

Apart from the fact that the Eagles need more draft picks is the reality that Foles, through his agents, may soon be clamoring for a chance to play this year, and to be paid accordingly. When the Eagles traded Bradford two years ago, the Eagles otherwise intended to put him on the field. Foles is slated to be the backup, and to make a mere $7 million; surely, he’s interested in not being a backup and not making only $7 million.

KAT hit in face, scores 37 to lead Wolves past Wiz 116-111

Karl-Anthony Towns recovered from a shot to the mouth that left him down on the court and finished with a season-high 37 points and 10 rebounds, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 116-111 victory over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night.

For those wondering about the trends, well, they are myriad. Arrieta averaged 94.6 mph on his fastball when he was arguably the best player in all of fantasy. In 2016, that fastball slipped to an average of 93.7 mph. Last season it was at 92.1. That is a very big deal. Let us not blindly presume he is heading the way of fallen Seattle Mariners king Felix Hernandez, but being purely objective, when a pitcher sees such a stark decrease in velocity that quickly, it tends to be worth worrying about for either statistical or health purposes.

Unfortunately, there is more. Arrieta permitted 26 home runs over 64 starts in 2015-16. Last season, Arrieta permitted 23 blasts in 168 1/3 innings, as his hard-contact rate spiked, left-handed hitters had far less trouble with his stuff and/or deception, and his ground ball rate continued its predictive descent along with it. Arrieta’s FIP was 4.16, which is below average and likely more reflective of how he pitched, rather than his ERA. Now, we can all live with an ERA even in that somewhat bloated range, in theory, if it comes with a decent WHIP and strikeouts and wins and … this just is not as sure a thing anymore.

Butler entered free agency in a weird spot following his mysterious Super Bowl benching, and the buzz in Indy was that he wouldn’t find the deal of his dreams in free agency. I could see him taking a one-year deal for $9 million or so plus incentives, then hitting the market again in a year, perhaps under better circumstances. — Graziano

His résumé makes him one of the top two wideouts on the market, but he’s coming off a season lost to a Week 1 torn ACL. Robinson could find himself following the 2017 Alshon Jeffery model. Remember, Jeffery couldn’t get the long-term deal he wanted on the market, so he signed with the Eagles for one year and $9 million plus incentives that could push the deal to $14 million. He got his extension from Philly late in the season, and obviously things worked out well there for everyone. — Graziano

Davis has another year of arbitration eligibility left on his deal. Oakland has a lot of under-25 big leaguers, or others close to that, to replace him in the lineup and avoid that expense. For a contender looking for some middle-of-the-order pop, Davis would be attractive, and the cost in prospects likely wouldn’t be prohibitive.

Cunningham scores 22, No. 11 Missouri women beat Arkansas

Sophie Cunningham scored 22 points to lead five Missouri players in double figures and the No. 11 Tigers beat Arkansas 88-54 on Sunday.

Kayla Michael and Lauren Aldridge had 13 points apiece, while Jordan Chavis and Jordan Frericks each scored 12, for Missouri (17-2, 5-1 SEC).

Mazzant found that Elliott did not receive a fair hearing before league-appointed arbitrator Harold Henderson, in large part because Henderson did not force NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Elliott’s accuser in a domestic violence case to testify at Elliott’s appeal hearing. Henderson, a former labor executive for the NFL, upheld the six-game suspension imposed by Goodell.

The league’s request for a stay of the injunction technically is made first to Mazzant. Assuming that the judge does not reverse his own decision, the request then is made to the appeals court. NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said the league will seek expedited action on its request for an emergency stay on the injunction.

After UMBC’s Daniel Akin made a layup to make it 8-4 with 15:24 to go before halftime, the Retrievers didn’t score again until the 6:52 mark of the first half, missing nine shots during that stretch.

Albany led 36-12 at the break, and continued the one-sided affair after intermission with a 13-0 run as Nichols made a pair of 3s. UMBC (13-8, 4-2) didn’t score until 16:37 left with Joe Sherburne’s layup to make it 49-14.

Clark added 12 points for Albany which shot 33 of 57 (58 percent) compared to 17 of 54 (31.5) for the Retrievers. Jairus Lyles led UMBC with 14 points.

Part of those kick-ass plans will involve Eli Manning’s future with the team. Gettleman, for his part, wasn’t quite ready on his first day back in New York to make clear predictions regarding the two-time Super Bowl winner’s future.

I haven’t had access to tape and I’m not avoiding the question, but, obviously, you got to look at the film, see what’s cooking, Gettleman said about Manning. Eli’s won a lot of games, he’s a great competitor, he’s very intelligent and he and I are going to talk, and if what I saw in Philadelphia was not a mirage — which I don’t believe it was — then we’ll just keep moving.

No. 9 Cincinnati looking to keep streak alive vs. Temple

When a reporter asked Mick Cronin on Monday to comment on his team being ranked in the top 10 of this week’s Associated Press poll for the first time in three seasons, the Cincinnati Bearcats head coach was having none of it.

Somebody texted it to me, Cronin said. I was going to describe that person with an adjective. I’m trying to get over vomiting all day Sunday over our performance Saturday night.

Unlike the first matchup against the Bearcats, Temple finished strong with a 12-0 run to close out a 60-51 win over Penn on Saturday. This was in contrast to several other games this season, including Cincinnati, where the Owls squandered leads late.

We’re equal opportunity on bad plays, said Temple coach Fran Dunphy of his team’s struggles down the stretch. We take bad shots, we throw it away … we cover the gamut. But, to survive and move on to the next challenge, we’re grateful for it.

Cincinnati leads the all-time series with Temple 20-9, including three straight wins. The Bearcats own an 8-2 advantage over the Owls at home.

Kent State led 38-31 at halftime, but Ball State (12-8, 3-4) grabbed the lead, 42-41, on a Trey Moses free throw with 3:20 gone in the second half. The Golden Flashes trailed 49-45, but Walker nailed 3-pointers to begin and end a 10-0 run and forge a 55-49 lead. From there, Ball State got seven points from Sean Sellers and five from Tayler Persons, including a 3-pointer with 24 seconds left in regulation, to send the game to overtime tied at 71.

Ishmael El-Amin’s layup gave the Cardinals a 75-74 lead with 3:18 remaining, but Pippen hit a jumper to ignite a 10-0 run to seal the win for Kent State.

Persons tallied 19 points and seven assists to pace Ball State. Sellers added 15 points and nine rebounds.

So we’re going to enjoy and embrace every single second of it, you know? We get obsessed with completion. That’s what successful people do, they get obsessed with completion. And we need to complete this season. And no better way to go out than with a win.
