Broncos waive kicker Taylor Bertolet, defensive end Jhaustin Thomas

As rosters churn in the wake of the NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos trimmed a pair of players from their roster on Monday.

The Broncos waived kicker Taylor Bertolet and defensive end Jhaustin Thomas.

This draft is teeming with speedy, undersized cornerbacks. I have a friend whose shtick is to approach every bartender like it’s his first time in a bar and say, I’d like to try a beer. Ozzie Newsome still reaches draft weekend and says, I’d like to sample one of your Alabama defenders, please.

Kyzir White is a high-effort, high-character defender who played the Spur position for the Mountaineers. The Spur is basically a nickel linebacker or box safety, so you know what that means: White is a tweener, a hybrid, a specialized matchup defender, someone who doesn’t fit our outdated 3-4/4-3 positional nomenclature, even though he fits just fine on the modern football field where defenses are in nickel or dime personnel groups about 70 percent of the time. White throws his body around in run defense and can use his long arms and quickness to stick with tight ends in pass coverage.

Stave signed with the Vikings as an undrafted rookie in 2016 and has spent time with the Seahawks, Chiefs, Redskins and Jets as well over the last two years. He has not played in or dressed for a regular season game.

The Browns also announced that they have waived wide receiver Matt Hazel, defensive back Kai Nacua and wide receiver Kasen Williams. The Browns drafted two wide receivers and two defensive backs over three days in Dallas.

I profiled Kyle Lauletta in early April. He’s an exceptionally bright individual who actually majored in Leadership in college—don’t snicker, you communications majors; it sounds like a really cool, challenging program—and earned Senior Bowl MVP status after an impressive week. He’s a great decision-maker and short passer, but deep outs and long throws tend to die on him.colts_033

Like Kipnis, Fowler is slow out of the gate.

Sam Darnold is projected by some to be the first guy taken in the draft, but regardless of when he’s picked, he’ll be the fifth USC quarterback selected since the 2008 draft. Darnold is expected to be the first USC quarterback taken in the first round since Mark Sanchez was drafted fifth overall in 2009. If Darnold goes No. 1, he’ll be the first Trojans quarterback selected first since Carson Palmer in 2003.

Dexter Fowler (B), 48 percent, St. Louis Cardinals at Pittsburgh Pirates (LHP Steven Brault): However, he also has a history of success to rely on. Brault has struggled with control throughout his career, including a 4.4 BB/9 this season. He also sports a low 5.6 K/9. Fowler as the patience to take advantage of Brault’s wildness, not to mention benefiting from a good chance to put a strike in play.

Friday poses a standard schedule, with the typical afternoon game at Wrigley Field when the Cubs are hosting a weekend series. Postponement and off days have scrambled rotations such that each slate has a little of everything. Corey Kluber headlines Friday’s games with the marquee matchups pairing off Stephen Strasburg and Zack Godley along with Dallas Keuchel entertaining Sean Manaea.

Drew Pomeranz (L), rostered in 44 percent of ESPN leagues, Boston Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays: Pomeranz’s initial start of the 2018 season drew mixed review. He fanned seven but allowed five hits, two walks and three runs to the Athletics. His follow-up won’t be a cakewalk as the Rays tote an above-average .332 weighted on-base average (wOBA) versus southpaws into Fenway Park. Still, with strikeout upside, a rested bullpen and good run support, Pomeranz is in play.

San Diego Padres skipper Andy Green stated he’ll use closer Brad Hand when most needed, as opposed to strictly ninth-inning duties. This begs the question, “Who will vulture the saves when Hand is deployed earlier?” Usage patterns and early-season numbers suggest Kirby Yates, but don’t overlook what Adam Cimber has done so far, fanning 22 with just three walks in 17 innings.

Leonard Fournette is the only LSU back to be taken in the first round (No. 4 to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2017) in the past 10 years, but the Tigers could get another one this year with junior Derrius Guice making the early NFL leap. Guice, who battled through injuries in 2017, rushed for 1,251 yards and 11 touchdowns while averaging 5.3 yards per carry. ESPN NFL draft guru Mel Kiper lists him as his No. 2 running back on his final Big Board.orioles_017

Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence calls franchise tag ‘a blessing’

Albies, who roped a ground-rule double and his third homer of the season, provides more power than his 5-foot-9, 165-pound frame would have one believe.

“I would probably say he and (Astros second baseman Jose) Altuve are probably pound-for-pound, might be the two strongest guys in the major leagues,” Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. “He’s not tall but he’s strong, big.”

When approached by the Daily News, Rams general manager Les Snead and head coach Sean McVay would not comment on the trade rumor. However, an unnamed Rams executive asked, “where did you hear that?”

Beckham already lives in Los Angeles during the offseason, so the Rams are likely using the idea of him living there full time as a tactic.

If the Rams give their first-round pick for the 2018 draft, the Giants would have the 23rd overall pick on top of having the second overall pick.

Beckham, who said he would not play unless he received a huge contract extension from the Giants or elsewhere, had at least 90 catches, 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of his first three seasons but fell short this past year due to injury.

Beckham is set to earn $8.5 million in 2018, the final year of his rookie contract.

For the campaign, Watson played a different game of catch with go-to Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Turns out, Watson and Hopkins can still connect on big passes when trading laced footballs for uncracked eggs.

Anderson, 24, had faced nine charges, including two felonies felony fleeing and eluding police with lights and sirens active and felony threatening a public servant or family member after police alleged he was clocked in his Jaguar SUV driving 105 mph in a 45-mph zone.

The arresting officer detailed in his report that Anderson verbally threatened the officer’s wife while in the back of his cruiser.

Anderson still could be subject to potential discipline under the NFL’s personal-conduct policy.

This offseason, a troubling video surfaced in which Beckham had what appeared to be a brown cigarette in his hand while a woman used a credit card to arrange lines of a white powder. The video was taken after a night of partying in France. It’s one of several incidents that have irked Giants ownership since he was drafted. Giants co-owner John Mara was also unhappy when Beckham pretended to urinate on the field like a dog after a touchdown last season in Philadelphia.cardinals_036

Jerry Jones doesn’t see big gap between Cowboys, Eagles

Jerry Jones is having a hard time distinguishing his team from its rival.

When asked how Philadelphia managed to win its first Super Bowl title in two years time while Dallas has strived for its first championship since 1995, the Cowboys owner felt the need to amend the timeline.

“I’d like to think that Philly closed the deal of where we had an opportunity to do it the year before.”

The Cowboys went 13-3 in 2016, while the Eagles finished 7-9 for second in the division and missed the playoffs. But that all changed in 2017 as Dallas went 9-7 and Philadelphia finished 13-3 for first in the division before beating the Patriots in Super Bowl 52.

The Giants signed Mauro, 27, to a one-year deal reportedly worth $880,000. The defensive end spend the past four seasons with the Cardinals and compiled a career-best 32 tackles in 2016. He finished the 2017 season with 22 tackles, starting seven games.

“I want to thank the entire Giants organization for believing in me and giving me an opportunity to compete and help bring another championship to such a storied franchise,” Mauro said. “I look forward to overcoming this adversity I’ve ultimately brought upon myself and will do everything I can to contribute to this team winning football games.”

Yu Darvish also bounced back from a rocky debut with the Cubs, striking out nine over six crisp innings. Maddon felt the right-hander got into a rhythm.

“Everything becomes sharper,” Maddon said. “I’m certain it’s a feel thing for him.”

The following day, Apple denied that the conversations ever occurred.

“There’s only just one corner that … needs to grow, and we all know who that is,” said Collins, one of the more popular players in the locker room. “That would be the only person I would change out of our secondary group. Besides, the other two guys, [Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie] and [Jenkins], I love those two guys. They play hard. They love what they do.cardinals_097

MLB says percentage of black players highest since 2012

The percentage of black players from the United States and Canada on opening-day active rosters rose to 8.4 percent, its highest level since at least 2012.

Major League Baseball attributed the increase at least partly to its efforts to increase baseball youth participation with programs that include Urban Youth Academies and Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI).

It’s been a huge investment for us, Renee Tirado, MLB’s chief diversity and inclusion officer, said Monday. Obviously growing the game amongst our players is a priority, so that uptick has definitely been from a concerted effort.

About 150 players who attended the Compton Academy have been drafted and a dozen have reached the major leagues, including Aaron Hicks and Khris Davis. Pitcher Hunter Greene, selected by Cincinnati with the second overall pick in last year’s amateur draft, started at Compton when he was about 7.

We have all these players that have made it to the major leagues on our outfield wall at the Compton Academy, said former Los Angeles Angels general manager Tony Reagins, now MLB’s executive vice president of baseball and softball development.

Twenty percent of first-round draft picks from 2012-17 were African-American. In another effort to increase participation in more than a dozen youth programs, MLB launched a Play Ball initiative for young players three years ago, shortly after Rob Manfred succeeded Bud Selig as commissioner.

It’s translating, Tirado said, but it’s a marathon, not a race.

Mr. Kelly continues to make solid progress in his recovery from extensive surgery for his oral cancer, Urken said. He has been moved out of the intensive care unit and made that transition by walking, on his own, from the unit to the inpatient floor where he will continue the next phase of care. He is still several days away from resuming swallowing and taking nutrition by mouth.

Kelly, 58, underwent a 12-hour procedure March 28 to remove oral cancer and reconstruct his upper jaw. He was first diagnosed with cancer in his jaw in 2013, and had surgery, then underwent a second surgery in 2014 when doctors found the cancer had spread to his nasal cavities. He announced last month the cancer had returned.cardinals_130

Colts sign Najee Goode

The Colts announced they have signed free agent linebacker Najee Goode.

Goode, 27, spent the past five seasons in Philadelphia. He started three games last season and played in the other 13.

In the team’s three postseason games in 2017, Goode made two solo tackles and four special teams stops.

The Broncos, Cravens said, are getting a player with both a new perspective and the same potential Washington once saw. Sitting out the season and getting well, he said, “wasn’t really about what I wanted, it was about what I needed to do. So now that I have a chance to play football and give it my all, it’ll never be taken for granted.

“I wanted a fresh start just because I didn’t like the way things happened. It wasn’t part of my plan. I never thought that at 22 years old I’d be at the house watching football instead of playing football. So the fact that the Broncos gave me this fresh start, this chance to basically create a new image of myself, I just can’t wait, and I’m thankful for the opportunity.”

“Everything is good, man,” Davis said, via the Buffalo News. “I’m making tremendous strides, tremendous progress. I’m on schedule to go, we’re going into OTAs next week. There’s no limitation, I’m able to do everything.”

Davis is expected to join Tre’Davious White in the starting lineup for the Bills, who were able to nab Davis despite interest from several teams in signing the two-time Pro Bowler.

The Grizzlies would match the franchise’s worst record (22-60) since the move to Memphis if they lose their final game.

“It’s disrespectful to say that guys are tanking and trying to lose, because those guys that are on the floor every night have something to prove,” interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said, adding: “Every single night they’re giving their best effort. So you’ve got to give the guys that are out there on the court more respect than I think people give them credit for.”texans_125

Marquette King visiting Broncos

The agent for free agent punter Marquette King said this week that his client wanted a chance to visit with the Broncos because playing in Denver’s thin air “is a punter’s dream.”

King is getting that chance to make his case to the Broncos that signing King would work for them as well. According to multiple reports, King is in Denver for a visit with the team on Thursday.

All of this presumes that Beckham currently has problems. Where’s the proof of that? He’s never gotten in any trouble away from football (including but not limited to never pleading guilty to obstruction of justice in connection with the investigation of a double homicide), and Beckham has associated with non-athletes from the moment he first rose to prominence in 2014. Apart from choosing to avoid the bulk of the team’s voluntary workouts last year and wanting to be paid for the value he brings to the team, what has he done differently in the past year than what he has done since his rookie year?

“If (the Jets) find a guy they fall in love with, I think that’s a team’s job to go get them if they feel that’s the future of their program,” Allen told co-host Gil Brandt and me on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “They only traded three second-round picks for it …”

The big-city arrival of a California farm boy via (Wyoming) Cowboy country is an even stronger possibility now, provided:

1: Allen isn’t chosen first overall by the Browns or targeted as Eli Manning’s heir apparent with the Giants at No. 2.
2: The Browns and/or Giants don’t trade out of their respective slots with teams seeking QBs. The Broncos and Bills are the most likely candidates but such moves currently seem unlikely (at best).
3: Allen is preferred over other members of this year’s “Big Four” QB class: USC’s Sam Darnold, UCLA’s Josh Rosen and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield.

The evaluation process to help create separation between the quartet continues Friday at Wyoming’s Pro Day.texans_102

Falcons bringing quarterback Tanner Lee in for a visit

Each NFL team gets to bring 30 players in to its facility for pre-draft visits. Each NFL team gets to pick, on average, seven players.

So while it’s easy to overstate the importance of each of the individual visits, some of them are at least worth filing away for future consideration.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Falcons are bringing in Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee for a visit.

From a categorical rotisserie head-to-head standpoint, Ohtani is now absolutely worthy of the No. 73 overall ADP (75.5) that represented his preseason high point on March 7, which is roughly where he’ll move this week in my rankings. He’s a top 20-capable fantasy starting pitcher you should slot in for all of his mound assignments, and assuming you don’t have a clearly superior utility option on the dates that he’s slotted at DH, he’s worth activating at DH, especially against right-handers.

Oh, but if he’s pitching in a National League park and therefore slotted into both roles and forcing you to choose, take the pitching stats … they’re still his ticket to stardom.

The Dolphins had just upset the Patriots on a Monday night in Miami, a win that seemed to potentially get a rocky season on track. The loss at Buffalo sparked a three-game slide that sealed the team’s fate for 2017.

Gase’s comments represent a more specific twist on a concept he seemed to agree with during a conversation at the league meetings in Orlando. The adversity that the Dolphins faced throughout the 2017 season made it easier for Gase to determine who is and isn’t fully on board. Moving forward, Gase surely wants more of the guys who will be all in no matter what, and fewer of the guys who won’t be.

Warner quarterbacked in the Arena and NFL Europe leagues, honing the skills that forged what became a Hall of Fame career. Vinatieri’s induction as just the third HOF kicker is a given once he’s done playing.

Indians have Tigers by the tail

The Cleveland Indians have dominated the Detroit Tigers in recent years, and they will attempt to continue that domination Tuesday night in the second game of a four-game series between the American League Central rivals.

Cleveland has won eight games in a row over Detroit, a streak that started last season and continued Monday night with the Indians’ 2-0 win in the first game of the series. Since the start of the 2016 season, the Indians are 28-10 (.737) vs. the Tigers.

Indians right-hander Josh Tomlin will make his second start of the season Tuesday night. It would be almost impossible for Tomlin not to improve on his first start.

Tomlin’s first start of the season, on April 3 vs. the Angels, was a disaster. He gave up more home runs than innings pitched.

In pitching eight scoreless innings in the Indians’ 2-0 win on Monday night, Corey Kluber held Cabrera hitless in four at-bats. On Tuesday night, the challenge falls to Tomlin.

Francona is more than mindful of the fact that Cabrera has a history of punishing Indians pitching.

He battled injuries last year, and I know he doesn’t get a lot of infield hits, so when he hits .300, he hits .300, Francona said. He’s certainly one of the better hitters of our generation.

The Tigers will go with Matthew Boyd, who will also be making his second start of the season on the mound. His first start was as good as Tomlin’s was bad. Although Boyd wast tagged with a 1-0 loss to Kansas City on April 3, he pitched six strong innings, allowing one run and four hits with a strikeout and no walks.

Last year, Boyd made four starts vs. Cleveland and was 1-2 with a 2.28 ERA. In nine career appearances vs. the Indians, Boyd is 1-4 with a 4.99 ERA.

Troy Vincent, the league’s executive vice president of football operations, told the Post the new rule would only require a player to control the football, and any slight movement of the ball detected via official review would not necessarily overturn the catch.

Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we’ll reverse that, Vincent told the Post. Going to the ground, it looks like that’s going to be eliminated. And we’ll go back to the old replay standard of reverse the call on the field only when it’s indisputable.cardinals_019

Man shot at pool party promoted by Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie isn’t cooperating with police

Cornerback Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie, cut by the Giants last month, decided to wait to sign with a new team. While waiting, he hosted a celebrity pool party on Sunday night. A man was allegedly shot at the party.

Via Will Kennedy of the Tampa Bay Times, Hillsborough County deputies arrived at roughly 7:45 p.m. local time after a report of shots fired at the Clarion Inn and Conference Center in Brandon. No injured persons were discovered at the scene, but man later went to a local hospital with non-life threatening gunshot wounds. The man has refused to cooperate with the authorities.

It was a play Oklahoma State ran 70 times last season.

“I crushed it,” Rudolph said, “because it was basically the same play we ran except for different verbiage, different way to call it. So they understand that. People that watch film understand that. And I think the media’s going to catch up soon enough.”

Another prevalent criticism facing Rudolph is that, for all his measurables, he lacks elite velocity and arm strength. But he says those worries haven’t come up much in meetings — and that arm strength apparently isn’t as coveted in the NFL as many think.

East has never played a regular-season game.

He was with the team during the 2016 offseason program and training camp, appearing in three preseason games before being waived August 29. He spent time with the Chiefs in 2015 and the Seahawks in 2016.

Davillier said the lawsuit was filed after Temple demanded a payment that Beckham wouldn’t make, according to NFL Network.

The entire statement from Beckham’s lawyer can be read below:

This is getting old. The filing is full of falsehoods and misinformation, and Mr. Beckham’s legal team is fully prepared to vigorously defend against these outlandish and unsubstantiated claims. Mr. Beckham denies any business or other relationship with plaintiff, and further denies any wrongdoing whatsoever.texans_025
