Kenny Stills is learning system, getting comfortable at Dolphins OTAs

DAVIE, Nike Kobe 12 Fla. –It’s not often that a young, up-and-coming wide receiver changes hands in the NFL before his rookie contract expires, but such was the case for Miami Dolphins wideout Kenny Stills.

He had a breakout season with the New Orleans Saints in 2014, catching 63 passes for 931 yards and three touchdowns, but was dealt to Miami earlier this offseason in exchange for linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round pick.

The move initially came as a shock to Stills, who is entering his third professional season, but any uneasiness he may have had with the transition has long since dissipated.

It’s been going great, Stills, 23, Nike Mercurial BHM said after Miami’s first day of organized team activities. Just learning as much as I can every day and trying to make improvements on my season last year. I’m learning the system and getting comfortable with all of the guys.

The first day of OTAs can be much like the first day at a new school for a player embarking on their first season with a new team. There are new faces, new teachers, new books and a whole new curriculum to learn in a short period of time.

For Stills, though, it was just another day on the job.

I think the biggest difference is just being in a new setting and having new teammates and seeing new faces, he said. It’s work, and I treat it that way. It’s great and I love being here.

Stills wasn’t the only new receiver to take the field at Doctors Hospital Training Facility on Tuesday afternoon as veteran Greg Jennings, rookie DeVante Parker and tight end Jordan Cameron rounded out a group of talented pass catchers.

Miami Dolphins news

  • — Suh’s impact felt early and often at Dolphins OTAs
  • — Receiving corps, defensive line make mark in OTAs
  • — Coming off ACL injury, Delmas feeling 100 percent

    I’m excited about the guys that are here, Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said of the team’s revamped receiving core. I was excited about the acquiring of every single one of them that is here. They walk in the building every day with enthusiasm, they walk on the field with energy.

    Jennings, 31, is entering his 10thNFL season and is viewed as a potential mentor for Stills and Parker.

    Asked what he could learn from Jennings, a two-time Pro Bowler and Super Scarpe Nike Kobe Bowl champion, Stills paused before delivering an emphatic answer.

    Everything, he said. From on the field to off the field to how to carry yourself as a man, just anything and everything you can learn from Greg. It’s a blessing for him to be here. I love picking his brain every day.

    While both Stills and Jennings were slightly overshadowed by Parker’s outstanding play throughout the two-hour practice, the duo showed enough during their first team activities to leave a positive impression on their new signal caller.

    Kenny’s is just a great athlete, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. He’s smooth, gets in and out of his cuts extremely fast and he moves a lot faster than it looks like he’s moving. It’s been really fun to work with both of those guys.

    Arguably the fastest players on Miami’s roster, Stills has a chance to become Miami’s No. 1 deep threat this season, replacing Mike Wallace, who was dealt to the Minnesota Vikings earlier this offseason.

    In the mean time, though, Stills is doing whatever it takes to appease his new coaches.

    Whatever they ask me to do, I’ll do, he said with a smile.

    West questions whether Phil can succeed in NY

    It sounds Free Flyknit 4.0 like NBA legend Jerry West has some serious doubts about Phil Jackson’s ability to turn things around for the New York Knicks.In an interview on Sunday, West, who wasn’t on good terms with Jackson when both men worked negozi scarpe running for the Los Angeles Lakers, took a few thinly-veiled shots at the Zen Master. West questioned the Nike Air Force 1 Prezzo trades Jackson has made with the Knicks and wondered about his ability to succeed in a front office role.“It’s a little easier for (Heat president and former Knicks and Lakers coach Pat Riley)," West said in an interview on Sirius XM Bleacher Report Radio’s “NBA Sunday Tip” co-hosted by Howard Beck and Ethan Skolnick.“He’s had a lot more experience on both sides in coaching and now in the front office. With Phil, it’s going to be interesting to see what happens back there. They didn’t have the kind of year I’m sure they wanted to have. Everyone in the league feels like they made two trades that helped Cleveland tremendously and one that helped Dallas this year."Jackson sent J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to Cleveland in early January in a 3-team trade that gave the Knicks two second-round picks, two trade exceptions and two players they would cut and later re-sign.Smith and Shumpert have been key contributors in the Cavs’ run to the NBA Finals, leading some, including West, to question the deal.

    AFL rucks key as Pies look to fell Giants

    Collingwood’s young rucks will lock horns with imposing GWS big man Shane Mumford on Sunday, with the outcome of that tussle set to be a key factor in the result.

    Brodie Grundy and Jarrod Witts are talented youngsters who are still finding their way in the AFL, while Mumford has been praised for the way his physical play has transformed the Giants.

    Pies assistant coach Scott Burns says the young ruck tandem will learn a lot from their battle with Mumford and he has backed them to hold their own.

    "Everyone knows how good Mumford is – it’s going to be a great test," Burns said.

    "He’s been giving their mids a fair bit of quality supply – with their speed and run on the outside, it Adidas 11Pro can cause a few headaches for opposition teams.

    "But we’re really happy with the development of our two boys. They’re still young and they’re really still in the novice category in terms of experience, so any time they can play games against quality ruckmen is going to be beneficial for them and, hopefully, accelerates their development."

    Grundy sent a scare through the Pies’ camp when he suffered Chaussure Nike Flash Pack a blow to the head at training on Friday and was taken to hospital in a neck brace. While cleared of serious damage, doubt remains over his availability.

    If the 21-year-old fails to get up for the clash, Burns has backed Jesse White, who will be playing his 100th AFL match, to partner Witts.

    "Jesse’s incredibly important to our structure," he said.

    "Whether we’ve gone with one ruck or two, the role that he plays is really important. His athleticism helps us in a variety of ways up forward and in the ruck – when he does go in there, he does quite well for us. He competes well."

    Witts, rested last week, comes back into the side along with Taylor Adams, who will face his old team for the first time.

    Paul Seedsman, winner of the Anzac Medal in Collingwood’s win against Essendon earlier this season, finds himself out of the line-up in what Burns Adizero F50 Online says is a sign of the club’s growing depth. Jarryd Blair is out with an ankle injury, while the Giants have brought in Nick Haynes at the expense of Aidan Corr.

    Nathan Buckley’s side sit fourth going into the encounter with the fifth-placed Giants, but the seven teams they’ve defeated this year occupy the bottom seven spots on the ladder.

    "It is a bit hard to tell where we sit, but we know that we’ve improved as a collective," Burns said. "And we also know that there’s a massive amount of improvement to come."

    NY school board approves changing district’s Redskins nickname

    LANCASTER, N.Y. — A western New York school board has unanimously voted to approve changing the nickname of the district’s athletic teams from the Redskins to the Legends.

    The Lancaster School Board officially adopted the new team name, mascot and logo during Monday night’s meeting.

    Last week, Lancaster students voted to choose the Legends nickname from a list of seven candidates.

    Is it time for the NBA to shorten the playoffs-

    By Vincent Frank

    The first game of the 2015 NBA Playoffs tipped Nike Free Flyknit 4.0 off in the Nouveaut��s Nike Kobe X early afternoon hours of April 18 when the Toronto Raptors hosted the Washington Wizards in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. If the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers goes a full seven games, it won’t end until June 19.

    That means that this year’s version of the playoffs could last a full two months.

    To put this into perspective, half of the NFL regular season takes up about two months. And even with a week off between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl, the NFL Playoffs last five weeks.

    Major League baseball, which now has four rounds to cover in the playoffs, took exactly a month to complete. That’s insane considering the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals went a full seven games.

    How can the NBA fix what is perceived to be a drawn-out playoff season? If it doesn’t, will fans start to lose interest? Heck, is two months of postseason basketball fair to the players?

    These are Nike Kobe 10 Silk Road three big questions we need to look at here.

    The Options

    The most logical step for expediting the playoffs would be to eliminate a round, but that’s never going to happen. The NBA gains too much revenue for this to be anywhere near a remote possibility right now.

    The second option would be to eliminate four or five games from the regular season and give playoff teams a full week off before entering the postseason, at which point games would be played every other day. No off days for travel. No three-day breaks in between games. No extensive rest in between rounds. And most definitely, no week off in between the conference championship round and the Finals.

    The third option is a little bit out there. Lower the number of teams that earn a trip to the playoffs to 12, at which point the NBA would seed the top-12 teams in the Association without taking into account the conferences. Four teams would have a first-round bye, while the other eight would play four best-of-five series. This would shorten the playoffs by at least five or six days, especially if the games are played every other day. It would also improve the product we see during the playoffs.

    Why is a Change Needed?

    With three full rounds until the Finals, it’s hard to shorten the playoffs too much. Teams can’t be asked to play back-to-back days after a grueling 82-game regular season. But the Association should be more flexible. It has to take into account the fact that certain rounds — this year’s conference finals being an example — won’t go the distance.

    For the players, it’s unfair to have a two-month long postseason slate. As we noted above, the NBA Finals might not wrap up until June 19. If that’s the case, both the Warriors and Cavaliers will only have until late September until training camp opens for the 2015-16 season. That’s absolutely ridiculous.

    Fans might not complain too much about an extended postseason, especially in years when it’s been exciting. We are all ready to see who comes out on top between MVP’s LeBron James and Stephen Curry. Ratings will still be there. Fan interest will peak. That’s not the biggest issue. Instead, the NBA needs to focus on how to expand interest. If you were to tell the casual fan that the NBA Playoffs could last two months, what reaction would you receive? Pure conjecture here, but it probably wouldn’t be too positive.

    New NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is an innovator. He’s not afraid to try new things. But at the end of the day, there’s no reason why the playoffs should last two months. This is something the league office must take up this summer. It’s that simple.

    Darren Lehmann going back to where it all began in Ashes two years ago

    England won’t need to be told that it will be a very different Australian squad landing there from the one beaten 3-0 last time around, having surrendered the Ashes to them since then.

    Steve Smith, it seems hard to believe now, hadn’t even scored a Test hundred when he was a late addition to the 2013 tour party. Now he has eight. David Warner hadthree tons and a radar for trouble. Now he’s got 12 and is a cleanskin. Mitchell Johnson wasn’t Mitchell Johnson and didn’t even play in that Ashes series.

    They’ve grown as players, on and off the ground, which is important, Lehmann said.They’re enjoying their cricket, which is what we’re about. We’re playing a brand of cricket that is pretty exciting, I think. That’s important for us as a group. Onand off the field, we’ve performed. We’ve grown but when we get to England it’s going to be tough. We know that.

    I’m proud of how they’ve grown as people, on and off the cricket ground, to be perfectly honest. And how they’re enjoying the game as a group. Whether you’re a player, support staff member, we’re really close and we’re trying to perform at the level we need to day in and day out. That’s really important to us. What can we improve on? We can improve on all areas. We’re going to make mistakes. that’s just part and parcel of cricket. Hopefully we learn all the time. We’re getting better at that as well. We’ve just got to improve in all facets.

    Lehmann, of course, has a new direct opponent in the England camp and knows Trevor Bayliss well. When he had a break during the Twenty20 leg of Australia’s limited overs series against South Africa last November,it was Bayliss who stood in for him. They are also former opponents in the Sheffield Shield.

    He used to whack ’em. He used to slog ’em at three for NSW, Lehmann said.He’s a good appointment and a great young man. Well,not Chaussure Nike Flash Pack a young man … he’s older than me. He looked after our boys in the T20 and zapatillas de baloncesto baratas he knows our boys really well. It’s going to be a great challenge to come up against him.

    All that is, fascinatingly, ahead of Australia but there is one more flight �Ca charter to Jamaica on Monday to take on the West Indies again �Cbefore boarding that jet for London. Once they’re in the aireveryone canmention the Ashes as much as theywant.

    One Adidas 11Pro of the things you can’t do is look too far ahead, Lehmannsaid.For us it’s about Jamaica and playing the West Indies there. They’ve got a good record there so for us it’s going to be a challenge. We try not to look too far head. Obviously there’s an eye on the Ashes and everyone is speaking about the Ashes but all we can do is worry about our next Test match. It will be bloody important for us.

    With 2018 in his eyes, Tim Cahill is on track for World Cup number four_1284

    When Tim Cahill blows out the 36 candles on his birthday cake this December, some might think it impossible that he can keep going at the top level much longer –least of all with the nation he has carried to, and through, three World Cups.

    About to enter his fourth and final campaign, which begins with the Socceroos’ opening qualifier against Kygyzstan in Bishkek on Tuesday,the prospect of going to Russia in 2018 would ordinarily idlebetweenimprobable and impossible.

    But if you still haven’t figured it out by now, Cahillis the master of defying expectations. And for those who urged the coaching staff to look for alternatives, the nation’s all-time leading scorer has a message for you, too.

    Realistically, did people think I was going Zoom Hyperrev 2015 to play in the last World Cup? Probably70 per cent said ‘no’ and only 30 per cent backed me and said ‘yes’. It was the same with the Asian Cup.Don’t get me wrong, it’s totally understandable and everyone has their opinions,he said at the Socceroos’ team hotel in Dubai, that unmistakable glint in his eye in full sheen.

    But regardless of whether you’re 20 or 35 years old, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know whether you’re up for it or not.

    There’s going to be no easy way for coach Ange Postecoglou to guide Cahill into international retirement, should that day ever arise. But while others of his vintage inevitably dropped their standards with age, Cahill has become frenzied about upping his.

    When I was playing at the Asian Cup, I was at a certain level. My levels are a lot higher now than what they were at that start of that[tournament], he said.

    I could be on holiday now for seven days because my team’s on a break. But at this stage of my career, I want to keep working.I have the appetite to still be involved.

    Whether I’ve been playing for the New York Red Bulls or now in China, what I’m striving for is the next level of professionalism. That’s what gives you the appetite to keep playing. The new regime of the last year, especially working with Ange, has kept me motivated.

    Since joining Shanghai Shenhua at the beginning of the calender year, Cahill hasn’t quite hit his straps in the Chinese Premier League –scoring justoncein 13games –but admits the opportunity is about much more than football.

    It’s such educational experience.I think I’ve seen everything in four months that I’ve seen in my whole career, he said.

    It’s an eye-opener. You have to embrace what the league gives you, the elements of surprise and also the lifestyle. For me, it’s a new club, with a new manager and a new system. You can’t have the best of everything. ButI have to admit to you – Shanghai is a pretty amazing city with a lot of opportunity, both on and off the park.

    You can go to any country in the world and be negative, but I find it very difficult to be negative. I love football and when I first went to New York, there were elements that really surprised me as well, but it helped me to play in another World Cup and win an Asian Cup. It’s the same with China.

    Back with the Socceroos, Cahill accepts that his position in the starting side is no longer agiven, especially now that others have arrived on the scene ready to challenge for his spot.

    Besides,Tomi Juric, Mathew Leckie, Robbie Kruse, Nathan Burns and Chris Ikonomidis are between nine and 15 years his junior.

    If you think you shouldn’t come into camp and you think you should be on holiday with the rest of your teammates, then you shouldn’t be here. But I don’t think that, he said. I think ‘how do I create a problem’at selection. I don’t have to start, but if someone isn’t going to take the opportunity and I get given it, I’m going to try and grasp it.

    With the World Cup campaign now about to start, there’s no afterglow for Cahillfrom January’s memorable triumph on home soil, either.

    The Asian Cup is gone. Now it’s about momentum and upholding standards. OK, we had a great Asian Cup, we lifted the trophy as a group, but now how do we get organised as a group to qualify for a World Cup? It’s on a whole different level, he said.

    A few players might not have experienced this, travelling to these sorts of countries and are expecting result and performances. But we can’t have three players with a six-out-of-ten. We need 15 players at eight-out-of-ten.

    The work rate can’t Adizero F50 Online drop just because you’re playing Kyrgyzstan. For us, there has to only be one way, and that’s at 100 per cent. That’s going to be our motto, because these boys will go the extra mile for each other.

    Tim Cahill runs the rule over the three newest faces in theSocceroos squad:

    Chris Ikonomidis (20, Lazio, attacking midfielder/winger): He’s a Cronulla boy, similar to my story, and I told him how I admired him for going about it properly. He’s learning his trade. He’s just signed a five-year deal and I told him don’t worry about anything outside of football – the newspapers and probably not getting the accolades you deserve. I said it will come. As soon as you hit the international scene properly, and see the results after, it will naturally progress. I never really played internationals until I was 24-25 until I learned my trade at Millwall, playing 250 games. I said to him: ‘You’re on the scene nowand,like it or not, you’re playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world’. I admire him for that.

    Danny De Silva (18, Perth Glory, attacking midfielder): Danny is going to be a great little player that’s going to develop. He’s got skills, he’s a jinky little player and coming into camps, they’ll put a program into him to make him stronger and develop him as a better player.

    Tomislav Mrcela (24, Lokomotiva Zagreb, central defender): I’ve been texting him and speaking with him in the past month, before anyone even knew his name. I’m really impressed by Tommy because he’s a big boy: he’s a natural defender, he’s good with his feet. I look at some of his [training] results, and I tell him that as camps go on, things will get better. So when you go back to Croatia, you have to lift your intensity,which means you have to take melhores sapatilhas Running the program back with you, so at the next camp, you’re exceeding expectations.
