OBJ reports to Browns, will practice after skipping workouts

By Tom Withers, Associated Press BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Odell Beckham Jr. reported for Cleveland's mandatory minicamp and will practice Tuesday after missing most of the team's voluntary workouts. The star wide receiver has been training in California, and missed nine of 10 practices. But he'll take part in the Browns' three-day minicamp, where he'll try to catch up and develop rapport with his new teammates. Last week, first-year Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said Beckham missed "a lot" during his extended absence. Kitchens' comment was a change in tone after he defended Beckham's decision to be away. The Browns acquired Beckham in a March trade with the Giants. Also, running back Duke Johnson is expected to be on the field after demanding a trade and sitting out OTAs. He's upset with a reduced role after the team signed free agent Kareem Hunt. While Beckham and Johnson are back, receiver Jarvis Landry will likely be held out with an unspecified injury......»»

Gruden challenges Antonio Brown during Raiders offseason

By Josh Dubow, Associated Press ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Antonio Brown's credentials were well established long before he arrived in Oakland as the Raiders new No. 1 receiver. Brown posted six straight 100-catch seasons for the Steelers with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and was the NFL's most prolific receiver before he forced his way out of Pittsburgh to join the Raiders in March. Those impressive credentials mean little to coach Jon Gruden, who is pushing Brown as hard as any of his other receivers as Oakland begins preparations for the 2019 season. It's a similar approach to the one Gruden took during his first stint in Oakland, when he inherited future Hall of Fame receiver Tim Brown and then added the game's most productive receiver ever in Jerry Rice. "He challenged me from the meeting room to the field," Brown said Tuesday of Gruden. "Lining me up at all kind of positions, hurrying up the offense's tempo to see if I'm able to mentally pick up what I'm doing, where I'm lining up really fast. So, it's never a dull day with coach. Always challenging, always high energy and always detailed and fundamental in regards to our assignment." While Gruden is holding Brown to a high standard, Brown does the same to his fellow receivers on the roster. He has instituted a fine system for dropped passes in practice and wants to set an example with his strong work ethic for the rest of the players in the receivers' room. Gruden had been enamored with Brown since his days as an announcer, calling him the hardest working player he had ever seen. Now the rest of the Raiders are seeing what Gruden meant. "He's showed that when he's been out here," offensive coordinator Greg Olson said. "If you're in that group, especially if you're in that wide receiver group, you're going to have to jump in and follow his lead. Again, he doesn't ask them to do anything that he doesn't do. That's what's real impressive about it. He hadn't backed off a bit even though his experience in this league has been so long, he still practices at a very high level." Brown has been one of the league's most prolific players. He was an All-Pro four straight years from 2014-17 and is the first player with at least 100 catches and 1,200 yards receiving in six straight seasons. His 686 catches and 9,145 yards since 2013 are the most for any player in a six-year span. But despite that production, he wore out his welcome in Pittsburgh and was acquired by Oakland in March for picks in the third and fifth round of the 2019 draft. Brown was benched by coach Mike Tomlin for the regular-season finale last year after the receiver went radio silent in the final 48 hours before the game. Brown arrived in a fur coat, hung out for a half and then disappeared from view until well after his teammates had cleaned out their lockers following a 9-6-1 finish that left Pittsburgh on the outside of the playoffs for the first time since 2013. He then publicly criticized Tomlin and Roethlisberger, eventually forcing his way out in the trade. He then got a new three-year contract worth $50.125 million from Oakland. "I'm extremely excited to be here," Brown said. "Obviously, it was a challenge. I'm embracing the new. Excited about opportunities to put my condition on display, work on my mentality with learning the plays and take it all in." Carr has worked hard to build a rapport with Brown and the rest of an almost entirely new receiving group. There are only three wide receivers on the roster who even got a single pass from Carr last season in Marcell Ateman, return specialist Dwayne Harris and Keon Hatcher. Those three combined for only 22 catches last season and don't figure to have a major role on the offense this season. Instead, Carr's main targets will likely be Brown, big-ticket free agent Tyrell Williams, Ryan Grant, J.J. Nelson and rookie Hunter Renfrow. Carr held many offseason throwing sessions in local parks with some of his new wideouts this offseason and tried to build a rapport off the field as well by hanging out in his free time. That was appreciated by Brown. "It's tremendously important to have a relationship off the field because playing football you get mentally tired, you get frustrated," he said. "You always want to have that respect for a guy, to know where he is coming from, know what he stands for and know what is important to him, so you guys can be on the same page and do what you desire to do. You desire to win.".....»»

In letter to NFL, lawyer for Chiefs Hill disputes abuse

By Dave Skretta, Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The attorney for Tyreek Hill sent a letter to the NFL on Thursday disputing child-abuse claims made by the wide receiver's fiancee, offering a point-by-point response to a secret recording of the couple that was made public last week. In the four-page letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, attorney N. Trey Pettlon also said Hill was willing to cooperate with the league's investigation. "(Hill) categorically denies he has ever 'punched' his son in the chest or anywhere on his body, or otherwise touched him in the chest in a mean-spirited manner," Pettlon wrote, adding that the audio was recorded while Hills and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, were considering separation. The NFL has declined to comment on the case. The Chiefs also have declined additional comment. The Chiefs suspended Hill indefinitely last Thursday, shortly after KCTV aired the recording in which the couple discusses injuries to their 3-year-old son. The following day, prosecutors in Johnson County, Kansas, reopened an investigation of Hill that had been closed just 48 hours earlier. On the audio, Espinal asks why the boy "kept saying, 'Daddy punches me,' which you do when he starts crying. What do you do? You make him open up his arms and you punch him in the chest." Pettlon wrote there have been times that Hill has "tapped his son gently" and told him to "Man up, buddy," or "Don't cry, my man." Pettlon also said Hill has always done so in a "calm voice" and that he has never punched or used his fist as a form of punishment. "The only thing Tyreek does with his son that is close to what she is describing as 'punching' is when they are playing," Pettlon wrote. Espinal also claims during the recording, made as the couple was walking through a Dubai airport, that Hill's son is "terrified" of him. Hill responds, "You should be terrified of me, too, bitch." "Instead of denying that his son was terrified of him a second time, something that has bothered him a great deal, he became frustrated and said she should be terrified, too," Pettlon wrote. "That comment is inexcusable, of course, and he wouldn't ask me to defend that here. That comment is also inconsistent with Tyreek's conversations with Ms. Espinal over the past several months." Pettlon said a forensic examiner has looked through extensive text messages between the couple and that never once does Hill call Espinal a derogatory name. In one exchange, according to Pettlon's letter, Hill tells Espinal after their trip to Dubai: "Crystal you know I didn't cause any bruising or harm to (our son) but for some reason I still may be charged." Espinal replies: "I know you didn't. I did. I hurt (our son). I'm the one that did it. I was hurt and mad you so I blamed you for everything." Pettlon also said that Hill is currently engaged in both family and individual counseling, "and he is committed to improving his life and becoming the best parent he can be." The Chiefs are in the midst of voluntary offseason workouts, and Hill has already been barred from attending, which is one reason why the NFL has not placed him on the commissioner's exempt list. Hill was drafted by the Chiefs despite a domestic abuse case in which he attacked Espinal while he was a student at Oklahoma State. Hill was kicked off the team there and wound up at West Alabama, and the Chiefs said at the time of the draft that he was undergoing counseling. That background, combined with the audio revealed hours before the start of last week's NFL draft, generated a substantial outcry that Hill should be released by the Chiefs. Some have even said Hill, one of the league's best wide receivers, should never play in the NFL again. Pettlon said Hill and Espinal continue to cooperate with investigators, and that District Attorney Steve Howe's office has reviewed the audio tape and has yet to prosecute either party. "It should be clear by now that there is a lot of information, including other compelling evidence that points to Tyreek's innocence, that is not a matter of public record and cannot be addressed in this letter," Pettlon said. "All indications are that the criminal investigation is over and Tyreek still maintains his innocence.".....»»

Carroll: Sherman played 2nd half of season with knee injury

TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer br /> RENTON, Washington (AP) — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman played the second half of the season with an injured knee, although he was never listed on any injury report. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Sherman had an MCL injury in his knee, similar to the ones suffered by quarterback Russell Wilson and wide receiver Tyler Lockett earlier in the season. Carroll called the injury 'significant' on his weekly radio show on KIRO-AM Monday morning and expanded on the situation later in his end-of-season news conference. 'He never missed anything. Just like Russell never missed anything. Tyler. They all happened over the course of the season and they all just made it through it,' Carroll said. 'They never complained, they didn't want to miss a practice and they basically didn't miss anything. But they were legit, those were legit injuries, they showed up in the whole thing. That's a challenge. Guys all over the league are going through the same thing, but our guys just happened to be doing it as well.' Carroll did not specify which knee Sherman injured and Sherman never appeared to miss any game time due to an injury in the latter half of the season. Yet the disclosure raised questions of whether the Seahawks circumvented the NFL's injury reporting policy. Sherman was not listed on any injury or practice report this season with a knee injury. Sherman typically sat out at least one practice per week starting around midseason, but each of those was given an 'NIR' — not injury related — designation on the practice report. The only time Sherman was listed as having an injury designation came in Week 12 against Tampa Bay when he was listed with an ankle injury. 'I'm feeling like I screwed that up with not telling you that because that happened, but he was OK,' Carroll said. 'So I don't know. He never missed anything, which is probably why.' Carroll said he had a 'big meeting' with Sherman after the season-ending 36-20 loss to Atlanta on Saturday in the NFC divisional playoff game. It was a tumultuous season for the cornerback that included two sideline blowups during games, conflicts with local media and an undisclosed injury. 'I just wanted to make sure we left on really good terms,' Carroll said. 'We talk a lot, I talk with him all the time. I just wanted to make sure to touch base one more time because it was a difficult year for him. The media thing was a big deal and all that. He made it through it. It was hard.' .....»»

Texans have QB questions again after 24-17 loss to Titans

TERESA M. WALKER, AP Pro Football Writer br /> NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — The Houston Texans are going into the playoffs with their quarterback situation unsettled once again, this time a combination of injury and improved play by Brock Osweiler. Tom Savage wound up sidelined by a concussion on Sunday and Osweiler played well enough after coming off the bench in Houston's 24-17 loss at Tennessee that coach Bill O'Brien said the Texans will be evaluating who starts their AFC wild-card game. The Texans (9-7) will host Oakland (12-4) next weekend. 'We will talk about that as a staff,' O'Brien said. 'We will talk about that tomorrow and the next day.' Savage started for the AFC South champions, left in the second quarter to be evaluated for a concussion and was cleared. He took a snap to kneel down on the final play of the first half and O'Brien told team radio Savage would play in the second half. But Savage was diagnosed with a concussion after being re-evaluated at halftime. O'Brien said he did not know what happened. That left Osweiler, benched during a win over Jacksonville on Dec. 18, running the offense. He threw for 253 yards and a touchdown and also ran for a 1-yard TD on fourth-and-goal in the fourth quarter. Osweiler had one final chance to tie with Houston getting the ball with 53 seconds left. But he was sacked and threw incomplete on fourth down as Tennessee held on. 'He did a good job,' O'Brien said. 'He competed. Guys got open for him. He threw the ball. Did a nice job for us.' Osweiler, the quarterback signed away from Denver for $72 million, said he absolutely wants to start in the playoffs. 'You play this game to be a starter,' Osweiler said. 'You play this game to contribute positively to your team, so I would absolutely love to start this playoff game. But at the end of the day I don't make those decisions.' Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins said nobody panicked when Savage left the game. 'We hate that Tom went down the way he did,' Hopkins said. The guy's just getting his chance in this league. But this is the NFL and it's next man up.' DaQuan Jones recovered a fumble for a touchdown in the first quarter and the Titans never trailed to finish with their first winning season since 2011. Matt Cassel also threw for a touchdown in his first start this season in place of an injured Marcus Mariota and Derrick Henry ran for a TD. The Texans had little at stake except sweeping the AFC South for the first time in franchise history. They deactivated six starters before kickoff and had just one starter in on defense by midway through the third quarter. Undrafted rookie Joel Heath had two of the Texans' four sacks. .....»»
