Jay Ajayi wants to return to workhorse role

Running back Jay Ajayi joined the Eagles in the middle of the 2017 season and split time in the backfield with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement on the way to a Super Bowl title.

Blount left as a free agent this offseason, but Clement is still around and the Eagles brought back Darren Sproles after last year’s torn ACL. Recent draft picks Wendell Smallwood and Donnel Pumphrey are also on the roster and former Washington starter Matt Jones recently joined the team, so the pieces for another committee would certainly seem to be in place.

Always wanted to play in front of these fans, Marshall wrote in a post with a picture of him in a 12th man shirt.

The 34-year-old Marshall is a six-time Pro Bowler, but the Giants cut him in April with a failed physical designation. He was coming off ankle surgery after playing five games last year for Big Blue.

While players were discouraged by the league’s decision, they were happy that Jets CEO and chairman Christopher Johnson publicly said he would not impose punishment on any player who protested, and would pay any fines the Jets, as a team, incurred from the league for their players staging a protest.

We’ve been actively in conversations with Christopher, on how we can go about it, and other ways to make change, Kearse said. I’m very appreciative of him. I think he kind of gets it, the fact that he has taken ownership, to support us and be actively involved.

We’ve spent an awful lot of time, I think this is our fourth day in the red zone, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, via Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I think it’s just important we get a lot of work in there. We put a big emphasis on it last year. We’re going to continue to do so.

While Cousins has found some early rapport with tight end Kyle Rudolph, the rest of the passing game is a work in progress. With new coordinator John DeFilippo putting in new things, there’s a big emphasis on installation this time of year, with a new set of basics like snap counts and play calls.

That’s why we’re doing it. It’s not easy, Cousins said. It is condensed. You have to be on the screws. Your throws have to be that much more accurate. The routes have to be that much more perfect in terms of the depth, the cut and the timing. That’s why we’re practicing it right now. . . .

Timberwolves working to sign Andrew Wiggins to $148M extension, report says

Acquiring guard Andrew Wiggins in 2014 was the first step the Timberwolves took to relevancy, jumping them to the top of the NBA’s up-and-coming teams.

By adding Karl Anthony-Towns the next year in the draft and Jimmy Butler via trade a month ago, the Timberwolves are now a force to be reckoned with. And they apparently want to remain that way for years to come by signing their talented young players for the foreseeable future.

Wiggins is the first up for an extension, and the Timberwolves have plans to get that done soon, according to ESPN.

Wiggins averaged a career-high 23.6 points in 2016-17 and added 2.3 assists per game.

While Beasley is often viewed as a draft bust considering he was taken No. 2 overall behind Rose and ahead of 2016-17 MVP Russell Westbrook and four-time All-Star Kevin Love, the former Kansas State one-and-doner has stretched out a productive career and serves as a low-risk, (somewhat) high-reward signing. Beasley averaged 9.4 points per game for the Bucks last season on 53.2 percent shooting (41.9 percent from 3-point range), finishing with the second-highest player efficiency rating (17.8) of his nine-year NBA career.

At 28 years old on a veteran’s minimum contract ($2.1 million), Beasley provides a scoring punch as a reserve for a team that finished 25th in the league in bench scoring (31.9 points per game). And that’s assuming he comes off the bench — if Carmelo Anthony does eventually get traded, Beasley might need to step into the starting lineup. As one scout told The New York Post’s Marc Berman, He can flat out score — isos along the right baseline. He could be a perfect replacement for Melo, if he’s traded.

NBA referees condemn LaVar Ball for his sexist rant towards a female official

The NBA Referees Association is not happy with LaVar Ball’s sexist rant about a female referee after an AAU game on Friday in Las Vegas.

She’s a woman who’s trying to act get that she’s trying to break into the referee thing, Ball said. But just giving techs and calling fouls, that’s no way to do it. I know what she trying to say: I gave LaVar, I gave him a tech, I’m strong.’ That ain’t got nothing to do with it. Just call the game.

If you’re going to be qualified, you better be in shape, and you better know the game. And she’s bad on both of them. She’s not in shape, she’s not calling the game right, and she don’t understand, so now she’s trying to make a name for herself. So she’s walking around like, I’m the only woman in here.’ Yeah, we get it, I don’t care if you a woman or a man or whatever, just be good at what you do.

The NBA Referees Association posted a series of tweets on Sunday, sharing their disappointment in Ball’s behavior and how Adidas, who had the female replaced, handled the situation.

This appalling story about the female referee removed during an AAU game warrants serious discussion, read a tweet from the NBA Referees Association Twitter account. First, the misogynistic comments and intimidation by the coach have no place in basketball – or anywhere. The actions by Adidas show what happens when an organization does not support those tasked with protecting the integrity of the game. We support the referee community. This offensive behavior cannot stand, & hurts all those involved in basketball.
