The CFL has a unique system for allocating players John Randle Jersey , a highly-sophisticated process that is akin to calling “shotgun.”
As to former Jets and (blink and you missed it) Raiders quarterback Christian Hackenberg, the Edmonton Eskimos have secured dibs. More specifically, and according to 3downnation.com, the Eskimos have added Hackenberg to their negotiating list.
Hackenberg, a second-round pick in the 2016 draft, hasn’t played in a single NFL regular-season game.
Since being released by the Raiders, who acquired Hackenberg from the Jets for a conditional seventh-round pick, Hackenberg has visited the Patriots but otherwise drawn no interest.
It’s unclear whether Hackenberg is willing to play in Canada. With no NFL team willing to give him a job John Brown Jersey , it could be his only option — other than waiting for the AAF to launch in February.
Edmonton also recently added receiver Terrell Owens to the negotiating list. He entered the NFL in 1996, when Hackenberg was one year old.

RAC–BELMONT-JOCKEY CONCUSSION PROTOCOL
Horse racing is years behind other sports in concussion education, evaluation, diagnosis and return protocol for jockeys, who often suffer them when they fall off. Doctors have spent the past two years developing a protocol Vonn Bell Jersey , but progress has been slowed by the industry’s lack of continuity from state to state and track to track. Riders who are on the Triple Crown trail from the Kentucky Derby to the Preakness and the Belmont see different rules and care along the way as horse racing seeks to catch up with the NFL, NHL and NBA on brain injuries decades after developing better treatment for horses than riders.

PHILADELPHIA – Carson Wentz was having an MVP season before a torn ACL forced him to the sideline where he watched Nick Foles lead the Philadelphia Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory. Wentz has a mission to return for Week 1 but his return comes with interesting circumstances: He’s got no pressure to return right away because the Eagles can lean on the Super Bowl MVP to start the season. And that’s not necessarily a threat to Wentz, whose friendship with Foles appears without the strain seen in other famed NFL tandems like Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers or Joe Montana and Steve Young. That has allowed Wentz to pursue other interests while rehabbing, like building a sports complex during a mission trip to Haiti, with the comfort of knowing his job is reasonably safe if he plays well once he comes back.
