Washington Redskins Elite Jerseys

The Browns parted ways with one veteran cornerback this offseason when they traded Jason McCourty to the Patriots and they could move another one this week.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Jamar Taylor could wind up on the trade block during this week’s draft. The impetus for such a move by the Browns would be the addition of another cornerback in the early rounds.

The Browns currently own the first http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/kelvin-benjamin-jersey , fourth, 33rd, 35th and 64th picks. There hasn’t been much talk about using either of the first-round picks on a corner, although there’s always the possibility of a trade that brings players at that position onto their radar.

T.J. Carrie, E.J. Gaines and Terrance Mitchell all signed with the Browns in free agency and 2017 fourth-round pick Howard Wilson is coming back from a knee injury that wiped out his rookie season. Briean Boddy-Calhoun is also on Cleveland’s cornerback depth chart.

Taylor joined the Browns in a trade with the Dolphins in 2016 and signed a three-year extension before the year was out. He’s played in 31 games over the last two seasons and intercepted three passes.

Amid chants of "Nova! Nova!" Villanova students and fans loudly welcomed their men's basketball team back to campus Tuesday night, a day after the Wildcats claimed their second national championship in three years.

 

Players were treated like rock stars as they made their way into the ancient Jake Nevin Field House for a celebration.

"What's better than this?" coach Jay Wright said as the crowd roared.

Behind Donte DiVincenzo's career-high 31 points off the bench, Villanova routed Michigan 79-62 on Monday in San Antonio to win the school's third national title.

Junior forward Eric Paschall held the championship trophy and the bleary-eyed players wore hats lodged with strands of the nets they cut down a night earlier. Jalen Brunson Authentic Jared Goff Jersey , the national Player of the Year, led the fans in a chant of "Di-vin-cenzo" before he was introduced last among the players.

"The chances of a red-headed Italian with Rollie Massimino 'RVM' on his chest, coming off the bench to score 31 points in the national championship game," Wright said before the crowd drowned him out, referring to the late Wildcats coach who led the school to the 1985 title.

The top-seeded Wildcats (36-4) won all six of their NCAA Tournament games by double digits, bucking the trend of upsets thanks to depth, buzzing offense and improved defense.

Go Cats!" junior guard Phil Booth yelled.

Rain forced the celebration to be moved inside from the football stadium Mattias Janmark Jersey , but it didn't dampen the enthusiasm at the Catholic school of about 6,500 undergraduates in suburban Philadelphia.

The tributes began immediately as the Wildcats landed, when the Philadelphia fire department delivered a water cannon salute as their plane taxied.

On their Main Line campus, fans, many of whom had a blue "V'' painted on their cheeks, stood in the rain in a line that snaked around the corner waiting for the doors to open.

Included in the crowd was Ron DiPietro, class of 1972 Shilique Calhoun Jersey , who said he turns 68 Wednesday. DiPietro clutched a gray 1985 Villanova national title T-shirt on a coat hanger.

"Too much firepower, well-disciplined, wonderful team," DiPietro said. "They blew everybody out, let's face it."

The pep band and cheerleaders entertained the crowd before the team arrived. The balcony seats in the 1,500-seat arena were nearly full, with hundreds more on the floor crammed near a barrier to the stage. A banner hung that read "Congratulations 2018 men's basketball national champions."

Fans yelled "One more year!" to both Brunson and Mikal Bridges as they were introduced by Wright. Neither player wanted to comment on their futures Nicklas Backstrom Jersey , but Wright indicated returning to school was wishful thinking.

"We're going to talk about it this week with those guys," Wright said. "But both of them are going to graduate and both of them have a chance to become first-round picks."

Next up, a parade Thursday in Philadelphia that will end with a rally outside City Hall as the region basks in its recent sporting success. The Eagles won their first Super Bowl two months ago.

"I'm proud of the Eagles and I'm proud we're even part of it with them," said Wright, an Eagles season-ticket holder. "I'm really happy for the city of Philadelphia."
