Hargove.“I’m honored Antworten

The Dallas Cowboys are placing the franchise tag on DeMarcus Lawrence for the second straight year. Their star defensive end doesn’t appear to be in any rush to sign the lucrative one-year contract this time.Two people with knowledge of the decision said Monday the Cowboys had decided on another tag while the sides keep working on a long-term deal. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the decision hasn’t been announced.The move means Lawrence has a one-year offer for $20.5 million http://www.cardinalscheapstore.com/zach-allen-jersey-cheap , 120 percent more than he made under the tag last season. Even if the 26-year-old signs it, Lawrence and his representatives have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal with Dallas.Last year, Lawrence signed a $17.1 million contract the same day the Cowboys placed the franchise tag on him. He seemed happy to try to prove a career-best season with 14½ sacks in 2017 wasn’t a fluke.Not long after another Pro Bowl year and double-digit sacks with 10½ last season, Lawrence took to Twitter to indicate he’s now looking for a long-term deal. If he doesn’t sign the one-year tender under the franchise tag, Lawrence can skip offseason workouts without being fined.Two-time All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell missed the entire 2018 season with Pittsburgh after refusing to sign under the franchise tag.The Cowboys have plenty of incentive to get a deal done with Lawrence. He’s the centerpiece of a defense with several rising stars, including linebackers Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch.Defense was a liability for Dallas in Lawrence’s injury-filled early years. But that unit helped the Cowboys and their sluggish offense recover from a 3-5 start to win the NFC East for the third time in five years. The Cowboys beat Seattle in the wild-card round before a divisional playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams.A happy and healthy Lawrence could be one of the keys to the future of coach Jason Garrett as well. Owner Jerry Jones decided not to extend Garrett’s contract beyond 2019 after his second playoff win in his third postseason appearance in eight seasons.The Cowboys haven’t reached the NFC championship game since the 1995 season, when they won the last of their five Super Bowl titles.Dallas also ended up getting burned by the last long-term deal connected to the franchise tag. Receiver Dez Bryant refused to sign under the tag in 2015 before the sides finally reached a five-year deal just hours before the July deadline.Bryant, the franchise leader in touchdown catches, had three subpar seasons under the $70 million contract that included $45 million guaranteed. He was released in a cost-cutting move before last season.Lawrence has 34 sacks over five seasons. The Cowboys moved up in the second round to draft him in 2014, believing he was the last pass rusher on the board with difference-making skills. He was the first defensive end Dallas drafted after releasing franchise sacks leader DeMarcus Ware earlier that offseason. CLEVELAND (AP) — Baker Mayfield stepped onto the stage and took a handoff from former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar.At least he got one postseason trophy.Mayfield, who finished second to New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley in voting for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, was named Cleveland’s top professional athlete at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards on Wednesday night.Following a season in which he broke the league’s rookie touchdown record and made the Browns relevant again, Mayfield was selected over Indians All-Stars Corey Kluber and Jose Ramirez and Browns cornerback Denzel Ward.LeBron James was not a finalist despite leading the Cavaliers to their fourth NBA Finals last June — a month before the superstar left for the second time as a free agent.If James crushed the feelings of Cleveland fans Hakeem Butler Jersey , Mayfield helped soothe them by leading the beloved Browns to a 7-8-1 record following an 0-16 season.The No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, Mayfield began the season as a backup to Tyrod Taylor before coming off the bench in Week 3 and leading the Browns to a win over the New York Jets to snap Cleveland’s 19-game winless streak.His performance last season has Browns fans convinced a first Super Bowl visit isn’t far away.“That should be the expectation,” Mayfield said backstage. “It shouldn’t be that the whole town goes crazy over one win on a Thursday. It should be the expectation that we need to be competing in the playoffs every year.”He was introduced by Kosar, who didn’t even bother opening the winner’s envelope.Last week, Mayfield finished as a runner-up to Barkley, who received more votes from a panel of 50 media members for the AP’s rookie award.“I’ll use it as motivation, but the more important thing is winning football games,” Mayfield said. “Yeah, it’s more frustrating than anything because Saquon, that’s my guy, and he’ll hold it over my head forever. But you know what? I’ll use that as motivation, and I’ll be better in the long run.”Mayfield owes Barkley a chain necklace for winning the award, and said he’ll use the jewelry to make fun of Barkley’s massive quadriceps.“It’ll say ‘Quads’ on it http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/jonah-williams-jersey-cheap , not ‘Sa-quads’ but just ‘Quads,'” Mayfield said. “The two extra letters in there cost a little bit extra money, so we’ll stick with just ‘Quads.'”Mayfield was featured along with numerous football Hall of Famers in the NFL’s 100th-anniversary commercial, which aired during the Super Bowl.In the spot, Brady handed Mayfield his Super Bowl rings, which Clevelanders hope is a symbolic passing of the torch.“Obviously, being a part of something like that is very special,” Mayfield said. “Some of the names in that, if you told me last year that I would be a part of a commercial like that, I would’ve told you you’re absolutely lying. So to be able to be a part of a commercial with legends like that and actually be next to Tom Brady, no matter what you think about it, that’s the greatest of all time.“To be able to actually hold those rings — and they are heavy, those were the real rings Drew Sample Jersey , it’s something fun. Getting to talk to him a little bit and just get to know him and just be around like that, his presence is something that you feel as soon as he walks into a room. That’s the kind of stuff you admire and I want to have when I finish playing.”The annual black-tie event at the downtown Renaissance Hotel brought out some of the city’s biggest sports celebrities, including new Browns coach Freddie Kitchens, general manager John Dorsey and Cavaliers legend Austin Carr.Former Indians All-Star catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. received a lifetime achievement award. A six-time All-Star, Alomar, who currently serves as the team’s first-base coach, got choked up when talking about his manager, Mike Hargove.“I’m honored to be a part of Cleveland,” said Alomar, who was traded to the Indians from San Diego in 1989. “Cleveland has been the best thing that ever happened to me. Cleveland is about humble people. And I love to make a difference here. That trade changed my life forever.”
