The Chargers and running back Melvin Gordon continue to be at an impasse Trysten Hill Jersey , with no end in sight to the tailbacks holdout. But a window could be sliding open for a face-saving conclusion to the dispute.Im disappointed it has lasted this long, G.M. Tom Telesco recently said, via Eric D. Williams of I pride myself in having solutions to problems, and I havent solved this one yet. We know what he means to our team, and even bigger than that what he means to our organization. But the other side is we have a big game coming up this week with the Colts, and Im confident in the players that we have on the field right now will play well.A potential solution, short of a new long-term contract, could come in the form of dangling to Gordon a full waiver of the fine he has racked up during his holdout. Gordons status under the fifth-year option means that his daily fines were $30,000 (not $40 ,000). However, the Chargers also have the express ability under the rules applicable to the fifth-year option to fine Gordon the amount of a regular-season game check for each preseason game he missed.At $5.605 million for the full season, thats a weekly fine of $329,000 throughout the preseason. In all, he owes $1.31 million for skipping the four exhibition games, along with daily fines that will push the final amount due toward $2 million. So if the Chargers offer to wipe the slate clean if Gordon reports this week, hell avoid the fines and collect his weekly salary. Then, after the season, hell become a free agent barring application of the franchise tag or the transition tag.That may not be enough to get it done, but with the Chargers not budging and no one showing serious interest in trading for Gordon Tony Pollard Jersey , his best play could be to do what former Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew did in 2012: Surrender.Because Gordon is so close to free agency, chances are he wont stay away for more than six weeks of the regular season, in order to ensure that the final year of his contract is satisfied. But hell give up roughly $2 million in pay if he does that, and the fines will still be on the books.So if the Chargers want to take a crack at ending the holdout before Week One without giving Gordon the long-term deal he wants, the best move could be to offer a full cancellation of the fines, along with a threat/promise to collect every penny if his holdout lasts into the regular season. Jets coach Adam Gase navigated his way through a hostile press conference on Thursday, countering an at-times withering cross examination from reporters in the worlds top media market. And at one point, he made a critically important point regarding whether and to what extent the current drama in the front office ultimately matters to the fans of the team.While being grilled regarding whether the circumstances surrounding the termination of G.M. Mike Maccagnan will cause fans to not trust Gase, Gase interrupted with one of the truest things any football coach can ever say.I think our fans care if we win or lose, Gase said. If we win games Noah Fant Jersey , nobodys going to remember this, I know that. Our jobs to win. Our job is to win. Thats it.And that was the end of the press conference, an ideal message that made mostly everything said before that irrelevant. If the Jets win games, none of this will matter.That said, a perception/reality of dysfunction makes it harder for fans to tolerate losses. And Gase seems to realize that when he says, If we win games, nobodys going to remember this. If they lose games, people will remember it, because people will look for anything/everything to help understand why the team once again stinks. The lingering stench of dysfunction will become a prime candidate for scrutiny and, potentially , the catalyst for change.So the stakes are high for the Jets. But theyre always high. Football leagues present a zero-sum proposition, with every good team necessarily balanced by a bad team. Even if every team had a Bill Belichick and a Tom Brady, someone would end up 12-4, which means that someone will end up being 4-12, due to injuries, weather, untimely miscues, bad calls, and the bounce of an oblong ball.

Chargers running back Melvin Gordons holdout could soon be coming to an end , though no final decisions have made when to report. Schefter adds that Gordon had planned to return at some point in October, but could soon be moving up his reporting date.Three days ago, we reiterated the basic facts and rules that apply to the lingering Gordon holdout. Under the Joey Galloway precedent (which as far as we can tell has never been mentioned by ESPN in this context ), Gordon needs to be on the roster for eight games to satisfy the final year of his contract and become a free agent.Coupled with the teams ability to utilize a roster exemption of up to three weeks, and given the timing of the teams bye, this puts the ideal target at the period between Week Five and Week Six.Thats what we wrote on Sunday morning: Gordons safest play will be to report after the Week Five game against the Broncos and before the Week Six game against the Steelers.Maybe Gordons camp is finally getting their arms around the Galloway precedent. Maybe they were listening to the erroneous assessments of when he needed to report in order to become a free agent in 2020. Maybe they finally read the Galloway grievance ruling and realized that Ryquell Armstead Jersey , as applied to the teams schedule, he needs to show up in 12 days.Regardless, it sounds like someone is finally waking up to the reality that, if Gordon wants to avoid having his contract toll for a year, the safest play will be to show up before Week Six. The Giant surprisingly didnt keep safety Landon Collins after the 2018 season. Even more surprisingly, they traded receiver Odell Beckham Jr. , only months after signing him to a long-term deal.Was I shocked with Odell? Collins told No, honestly, not. They felt like he was a problem the whole time. Ever since Odell stepped into the league with them, they felt like he was a problem, I felt like from the outside.In this case, the they is the front office. The players felt differently.We loved him Nick Bosa Jersey ,�? Collins said of his teammates. Odell is my brother. He is not that kind of guy, or what people think he is about or what the organization did. I dont know why.Collins perception makes the decision to sign Beckham and then to trade him even more confusing. They could have traded him before signing him to a long-term deal. They also could have left him finish his rookie contract, applied the franchise tag, and traded him from under the tag, like the Chiefs did with Dee Ford and the Seahawks did with Frank Clark.Of all the bizarre decisions the franchise has made in the past few years, the decision to pay more than $20 million to a player about whom the front office was ambivalent at best is by far the most confusing. Especially if they could have gotten compensation close to what they received from the Browns (first-round pick Dwayne Haskins Jersey , third-round pick, and safety Jabrill Peppers) without having to give Beckham so much money.Meanwhile, why did the Giants have a problem with Beckham in the first place? He never created any issues away from the field, and he always produced at a high level. He ultimately wasnt happy in New York, possibly because he sensed the organizations hesitation toward him.All in all, it was a strange chapter for the Giants. If Beckham thrives in Cleveland or elsewhere , it will make New Yorks failure to make things work with Beckham even more strange.

Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks , the veteran left tackle did play a part in selling Jadeveon Clowney on Seattle as a potential destination.Clowney credited Brown and his relationship with his former Texans teammate as being one of the big selling points on wanting to follow Brown to Seattle as the Texans looked to trade him last week. Brown said he just told Clowney about what his experience had been with the Seahawks since being dealt to Seattle and that it could be a great fit for him as well.I had just been keeping in touch with himself throughout the offseason because Id been in a similar situation with my contract dispute and just checking in with him, making sure his head was good and he was in good spirits and working hard without any knowledge that this could even take place, Brown said.I just told the truth. I just told him how I felt here, my experience here about the culture, about the staff, about the team, the locker room. From there he just said man, that sounds like somewhere I would love to be. And I was like you would love it. From there things just started to progress and I just gave people my input on just my experience with Clowney.Brown and Clowney spent three-plus seasons together in Houston before Brown was traded to Seattle in October 2017. Brown had held out in seeking a new contract from Houston and ended up having disagreements with owner Bob McNair over anthem protests and McNairs comments in an ownership meeting about not letting the inmates run the prison. After returning to play a game against Seattle, Brown was traded to the Seahawks.Brown has felt embraced in Seattle and signed a contract extension with the team in July 2018. He sold his experiences to Clowney, which helped pave the way for the two to become teammates again over the weekend. Brown believes Clowney will be a big boost to Seattles defense in pairing with Ziggy Ansah at defensive end.Its scary Andy Isabella Jersey , man, Brown said.. Its scary. Obviously Clowney and Ziggy on the edge. Poona Ford I think is going to be a star in this league. We get (Jarran) Reed back. Bobby (Wagner) and K.J. (Wright) have been staples on this defense and in the league for a long time playing at a high level. (Mychal) Kendricks is a very, very great athlete. Also someone that can rush the passer when asked to.I think it just got real. It just got real for other offenses, you know what I mean? Im looking forward to it. Were going to do our part on offense to try to be as equally dangerous, but watching those guys is going to be fun. ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Dak Prescott saw single coverage by a linebacker on Ezekiel Elliott with the Dallas Cowboys trying to get in position for a winning field goal against the Detroit Lions.So did the 2016 NFL rushing leader.I lined up in the slot. I was excited, said Elliott, who was face-to-face with leading Detroit tackler Jarrad Davis. I was excited. I got them one-on-one with me. He made a perfect throw. One pass, we won the game.Prescotts 34-yard toss on a deep throw to his star running back set up Brett Mahers 38-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the Cowboys to a 26-24 victory Sunday and once again spoiling Matthew Staffords homecoming.Mahers fourth field goal came after Elliott got a step or so behind Davis and made an over-the-shoulder catch on his way to a career-best 240 all-purpose yards. Elliott had 152 yards rushing and 88 receiving Clelin Ferrell Jersey , also highlighted by a 38-yard touchdown on a screen in the second quarter.Anywhere you got him the ball, anywhere he had the ball in his hands, he was dominating the game and setting the tone, from the screens to the check-downs to that last play right there, Prescott said. It was just a dominating performance for him.The winning play came after Stafford had put the Lions (1-3) in front with 2:17 remaining on a 38-yard touchdown to Golden Tate , their second TD connection of the day.The best day of the season for a previously struggling Dallas offense 414 yards handed Stafford his third straight loss at the home of the Cowboys (2-2), seven years after his only win in his first trip to AT&T Stadium. The former Dallas-area high school star threw for 307 yards.I would much rather be the guy with the ball last, said Stafford, who lost a playoff game in his hometown almost four years ago. But I think all of our players on defense are probably sitting out there going, I want to be out there to make the stop. Thats just what we do.Trailing 20-10 Josh Oliver Jersey , Stafford led the Lions 75 yards to rookie Kerryon Johnsons first career touchdown , an 8-yard run that started a back-and-fourth final quarter. Johnson ran 32 yards on the first play of the game and finished with 55 yards.After the Cowboys settled for Mahers third field goal on an 85-yard drive, Stafford found Tate for 35 yards into Dallas territory before Tate easily beat zone coverage down the sideline and strutted toward the end zone, just as he had on a 45-yard score in the first quarter.Prescott had an answer while throwing for at least 200 yards for the first time this season. The Dallas quarterback saved the final drive by picking up his fumble when he was hit on the arm and scrambling before throwing the ball out of bounds.Prescott then converted a third down and two plays later hit Elliott in stride on the decisive play. The Cowboys killed the clock to set up Maher, the kicker they chose over Dan Bailey the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history at the end of the preseason in a cost-cutting move.My craft is same every time I step on the field, no matter what, said Maher, who has made all eight kicks since missing the first of his NFL career in an opening loss at Carolina. I was going out there trying to be 1 for 1 again.Elliott had a season-high 25 carries for his 152 yards, and Prescott was 17 of 27 for 255 yards with two touchdowns, including tight end Geoff Swaims first career score .Stafford was 24 of 30 with the two scores to Tate http://www.jacksonvillejaguarsteamonline.c...liams-ii-jersey , who had eight catches for 132 yards.ROUGHING THE PASSERThe touchdown screen to Elliott was set up by a roughing-the-passer penalty against Romeo Okwara. The question was whether the whistle had blown when he hit Prescott, who was trying to escape pressure when he stumbled out of an attempted tackle and went to a knee. Prescott popped up but had stopped moving, anticipating that he was down, when Okwara knocked him to the ground.CAREER FIRSTDallas receiver Terrance Williams was a healthy scratch for the first time in his six-year career. The Cowboys have struggled for consistency with their pass catchers in the first season without Jason Witten and Dez Bryant. They have seven receivers on the 53-man roster. Williams was the odd man out this week, and was a no-show at practice Friday.SACK MASTERDeMarcus Lawrence matched his career high with three sacks after Stafford came in having been brought down just three times combined in the first three games. Those were all three Dallas sacks. Lawrence has at least half a sack in all four games and 5½ for the season.INJURIESLions: RG T.J. Lang didnt return after sustaining a concussion in the first quarter.Cowboys: DT Antwaun Woods left in the first half with a calf injury. Woods was questionable before the game because of a groin injury.UP NEXTLions: Green Bay at home next Sunday.Cowboys: At Houston next Sunday.

Broncos locker room after Sundays loss to the Jaguars Germaine Pratt Jersey , which was a message that didnt call for much interpretation beyond noting that Harris is an impending free agent.On Monday, Harris pushed back at the notion that hes checked out on the Broncos. He posted on Twitter that hes as motivated as ever to help the Broncos win and said he was frustrated after a fourth straight loss.<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="500" data-dnt="true">I love being a Bronco, and the only thing I am unhappy about is losing. Anyone who suggests otherwise is flat out wrong #Strapharris Chris Harris (@ChrisHarrisJr) September 30, 2019</blockquote>Harris made similar comments , via Troy Renck of, at a charity event on Monday night. Head coach Vic Fangio was asked about Harriss postgame remark and chalked it up to just frustration.Thats just common, Fangio said, via KUSA. I think hes obviously a free agent at the end of this year. I dont worry about it too much. Ill ask it about it.Should the season continue to fly off the rails in Denver Renell Wren Jersey , Harris is the sort of veteran they might look to trade in order to amass assets for the future but it doesnt seem like an accelerated departure is in the offing right now. Hall of Famer Dan Fouts likes the offense he sees in the NFL these days, saying the league is both more exciting and safer because of rule changes to protect quarterbacks.Fouts, who played 15 years for the San Diego Chargers, said that even while not all games are high scoring , fans are enjoying games that are more exciting and less predictable than in the past.Fouts also tells PodcastOne Sports Now co-hosts Jim Litke and Tim Dahlberg that dynasties are not a bad thing, and said what Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have accomplished in New England is nothing short of remarkable.The podcast hosts also talk to AP sports writer Eddie Pells about his most recent story, which shows that NFL rosters are getting younger despite changes to the collective bargaining agreement in 2011 that were supposed to give players finishing their first contracts a better chance to keep playing in the league.Pells said players will likely be seeking a lot of changes in the agreement when it expires in two years, and said he wouldnt be surprised if there was either an NFL lockout or a player walkout.Litke and Dahlberg share memories of great Super Bowl moments you likely didnt see on TV T.J. Hockenson Jersey , and discuss the proper way to prepare avocado toast rather than spend $12 in a restaurant for the trendy dish.

Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson has a knack for making big plays Chris Lindstrom Jersey , whether its with his arm or his feet.But after the quarterback took a few too many unnecessary hits in a 19-16 overtime win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, his teammates wondered if maybe he should dial things back a bit.I be in the huddle telling him to get down, receiver DeAndre Hopkins said. I need him. Dont take those hits unless you have to. But hes a warrior. He wants to get in the end zone every time the ball is in his hands.Watson threw for 375 yards with a touchdown and an interception and ran 10 times for 40 yards for the Texans, who won in overtime for the second straight week.Houston coach Bill OBrien agreed with Hopkins that Watson is taking too many blows but added that he doesnt want to cut down on the hits at the cost of changing the way he plays.Weve got to do a better job of making sure that he doesnt take as many, OBrien said. At the same time, its a fine line because thats part of his game. Thats the way he plays the game.He enjoys that part of the game to be honest with you, OBrien continued. I think its something that we continue to coach and obviously, its something we dont want an abundance of him getting hit, but sometimes it does happen.The Texans were driving late in the fourth quarter when Xavier Woods intercepted Watson , who threw under heavy pressure, with 10 seconds left and returned it 15 yards to give Dallas the ball at its 47. Watson was taken down hard by two defenders on the play and was slow to get up. He was checked out in the medical tent after that, but returned to throw a 49-yard pass to Hopkins in overtime that set up the game-winning field goal.He took a huge hit earlier when he tried to scramble for a touchdown near the goal line.I try to do whats best for the team, he said. I know sometimes whats best for the team is protecting myself, but when we are down there at the goal line and Im trying to get in the end zone, thats my mentality. Im built to take those hits. Im going to give all my will and all my guts to try to get the ball in the end zone.Some things to know about Houstons win over the Cowboys.WATTS WORKHouston defensive end J.J. Watt had a sack on Sunday night to give him six this season, which is tied for the NFL lead with Cincinnatis Geno Atkins and Watts younger brother, Pittsburghs T.J. Watt.Watt has been great in his return from missing most of the last two seasons with injuries and was named AFC defensive player of the month for September last week.The three-time Defensive Player of the Year said hes feeling pretty good but still has work to do.Im still working back from everything and still getting back, Watt said.NOWHERE TO RUNDallas running back Ezekiel Elliott finished with a season-low 54 yards rushing on 20 carries. It was the third-lowest total for Elliott Kendall Sheffield Jersey , who entered the game leading the NFL in yards rushing.Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Houstons defense made it difficult for Elliott to get anything going.They loaded it up in there and did a good job loading up the front, he said. We werent consistent running the football inside, really throughout the game Zeke ran hard, a couple of times, he almost came out of there, but it was not as consistent as wed like it to be.100-YARD HOPKINSHopkins finished with 151 yards receiving for his third 100-yard receiving game this season. His 594 yards receiving this season leads the NFL. Coach Bill OBrien raved about what he brings to his offense.Hes a playmaker, hes a great player, OBrien said. Were always trying to get the ball in his hands. The Packers will honor one of their all-time greats this season.Quarterback Bart Starr, a Half of Famer and two-time Super Bowl MVP who would later coach the team , died last month. According to the Ryan Wood of the , the Packers could announce as soon as Friday plans for celebrating Starrs life.CEO Mark Murphy said last week that a celebration will be planned in connection with an early home game in 2019. The commemoration could be in the form of a halftime ceremony, a Saturday event, or both.A public memorial for Starr will be held at Samford University in Birmingham tomorrow. Earlier this week, current Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he recently attended a private memorial, along with former Packers quarterback Brett Favre.Rodgers told reporters that Favre read a humorous letter from Starr regarding the way that Favre was wearing his hat on the sideline at games. Favre said in the aftermath of Starrs passing that Favre received a letter from Starr after every game.
