The Dallas Cowboys began their offseason program Monday with a noticeable void.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant is no longer a member of the organization. Defensive backs Byron Jones and Jeff Heath each spoke of how the Cowboys will miss Bryant’s passion and competitive spirit in the locker room.

Him being out here all the time, always fired up about something. We’ll miss that, Jones said. You can’t replicate that. I am sure he’s going to do well wherever he goes. Added Heath, That was probably line one with [Bryant], just his love for the game. He really demonstrated that when he was out on the field. In games, when he’d get going, I think the whole team fed off that. We’ll definitely miss that about him, but I’ve been in this league long enough to not really be surprised by any move. Jones and Heath spoke to reporters after going through a few lacrosse drills with members of the Dallas Rattlers, the new professional team in town that calls Ford Center home.

But the storyline with the Cowboys remains Bryant’s departure. Jones described his reaction as shock when he heard that the Cowboys were parting ways with their all-time leader in receiving touchdowns last week.

The Jaguars unveiled new uniforms and helmets Thursday, switching to a no-nonsense style that matches the team’s blue-collar identity.

The franchise showed off their new duds at the team’s annual state of the franchise presentation.

True to our current identity and what we want to represent for years to come, our new uniforms are no-nonsense, all business and unmistakably Jaguars, team owner Shad Khan said.

The official unveiling actually came a day after workers at Jacksonville International Airport inadvertently put up life-size posters of current players wearing the uniforms.

The Nike Vapor Untouchable uniforms feature much cleaner lines, which some might consider plain. They have three jersey and pants options — black, white and teal. The all-teal combination, including matching socks, can only be worn during Thursday night games.

The high-gloss black helmets replace the two-tone widely mocked the past five years.

The Giants released veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall on Thursday, GM Dave Gettleman confirmed.

NFL schedule 2018: Chiefs, Falcons lead 6 contenders with toughest schedules

NFL schedule 2018: Chiefs, Falcons lead 6 contenders with toughest schedules More The 2018 NFL schedule is not created equal for all teams. While every NFL fan likes to think his or her favorite team got a raw deal from the league, in some cases, it’s actually true. The quality of opponents from one season to the next is the biggest factor, but when and where games are played can combine to further stack the odds against teams with playoff aspirations.

The 34-year-old Marshall may have taken issue with the omission, or perhaps recognized that he could potentially be a casualty if the Giants were to sign Bryant.

The Giants, who currently have just $4.8 million in cap space, signed Marshall to a two-year, $11 million deal last offseason. Marshall recorded 18 receptions for 154 yards in five games before missing the remainder of the 2017 season with an ankle injury. He has 959 receptions for 12,215 yards and 82 touchdowns in 172 career contests for the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, New York Jets and the Giants. While Bryant is still sorting it all out, Bovada gave the Baltimore Ravens 3-to-1 odds of being the next team to sign the wide receiver.

Oct. 7, 8:20 p.m. Not only is this a battle for bragging rights in the Lone Star State, it involves two of the game’s most exciting, young quarterbacks in Dallas’ Dak Prescott and Houston’s Deshaun Watson, who’s coming back from reconstructive knee surgery. The Cowboys should also enjoy a full season from Ezekiel Elliott, while the Texans will be get J.J. Watt back from another injury-shortened campaign. 

Jaguars vs. Eagles

Oct. 28, 9:30 a.m. Finally, the fans in London can feast on a savory matchup. The Jags are the UK’s unofficial team, and with their trash-talking swagger and 2017 trip to the AFC Championship Game, there has never been a more exciting time to watch them. Some questions linger about whether Jacksonville’s rise was a fluke, but a test against the defending Super Bowl champs at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 28 should serve as a fine measuring stick.

Going back to early March, an NBC Sports report claimed Howard was involved in trade talks for ex- Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

To sit here and say a feature back, yeah, he’s going to be the guy who lines up and gets the ball. But at the same time, we’re crazy if we use [just] one back. That’s not going to happen. We’re going to use multiple backs.

That report further suggested Nagy and his staff have concerns about the drop-prone power back’s inefficiency as a pass catcher.

At the same time, however, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport rejected the notion that Howard was on the trade block:

A Pro Bowler in his first season in Detroit, Lang battled multiple injuries during the year and turns 31 in September. If durability continues to be an issue, the Lions could consider moving on after this season. He carries an $11.7 million cap hit in 2019 with just $2.7 in dead money.

And while the focus is understandably on the interior, with tackles Decker and Wagner each under contract for multiple years, Robinson’s rookie deal expires at the end of the year, leaving room for adding a developmental tackle anywhere after the fourth round. That need might be difficult to address, given the overall dearth of talent in this pool of prospects.

At Michigan State for three seasons, McDowell racked up 7.5 sacks, 24.5 tackles for a loss, an interception, two forced fumbles, and 50 solo tackles. Entering the NFL Draft, McDowell was projected to be a first-round pick and NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein compared him to Lions Pro Bowl pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah. But before his first NFL training camp, McDowell was injured in a vehicular accident. NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo reported at the time that McDowell got hurt riding an ATV, and suffered a concussion and injuries to his face.

He missed the entire 2017 season and according to Rapoport, he still hasn’t been cleared to play. At the time of the crash, McDowell said that his injury is not life or career threatening as some have speculated and that you will see me back on the field in the near future. Hopefully, regardless of where he lands, McDowell can eventually experience a complete recovery. For the Seahawks, who find themselves in the middle of a reset (not a rebuild), McDowell is yet another early miss in the draft.

The Seahawks’ ineffective drafting in recent years is partly to blame for their recent decline.

NFL Draft dream trades: Imagining an ideal three-team swap involving Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts, New York Giants

NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah, bucky Brooks and former UCLA head coach Jim Mora imagine a three-team draft trade between the Indianapolis Colts, New York Giants and Buffalo Bills.

In 2014, members of the Raiderettes, the cheer team for the Oakland Raiders, sued the team in a class action lawsuit, claiming the team was committing wage theft. It turns out that the Raiderettes were not being paid for their many hours of practice, and they won $1.25 million. The next year, the state of California passed a law requiring that professional cheerleaders be paid minimum wage and receive benefits. Cheerleaders for the New York Jets also sued their team in 2014, and in 2016 won more than $320,000. The suit claimed that the cheerleaders were being paid less than minimum wage.

The NFL has had flexibility with moving games to and from the Sunday Night Football window as well as between the early and late windows on Sunday afternoons. However, the league has not made a habit of moving games to different days than they were originally scheduled. The NFL saw a full slate of games on Christmas Eve in 2016 and had four games over two weekends on Saturdays last year.

The Chicago Bears faced the Detroit Lions and the Los Angeles Chargers faced the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 15, and the Indianapolis Colts played the Baltimore Ravens and the Minnesota Vikings faced the Green Bay Packers in Week 16. The NFL doesn’t play Saturday games while the college football regular season is ongoing, but a few games are generally scheduled on Saturdays in December.

Kraft said the right things while discussing Mill’s predicament, but it’s odd to see him come to the defense of a rapper he can do little for while refusing to use his status to speak on behalf of someone he can help: Colin Kaepernick. It makes it clear to me we have to do something with criminal justice reform, Kraft said outside the prison. He called Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, an amazing young man who is very intelligent. It’s just sad, he said. This guy is a great guy. Shouldn’t be here. He’s right, Mill shouldn’t be in prison for what amounts to technical violations of a parole that stretched more than a decade, an uncommonly long time.

He realized they only granted him a scholarship so they could ink Shaquill.

The way coaches would tell me,’You’re not going to be nothing but a shadow of your brother,’ or,’You’re always going to be on scout team.’ I had to hear that all the time, Griffin says. They can’t dictate how hard I work. They can’t dictate what I’m going to do for myself. I had to remember that. Obviously, for any player, it’s hard to have that negativity from coaches who are supposed to push you to be better than anybody wants you to be. But from that old coaching staff, I didn’t have that feeling that the coaches wanted me to be good.

Not every single day, he says. Obviously, that’d be unhealthy. But I threw up a lot. It was usually on the hot days where it’d get me.

Many nights, before his senior season, he even slept at the team facility. He needed to eat, sleep, breathe this game.

As a result, habits were created. Everything, he says, became second nature. Griffin points to one sack against UConn that was the direct result of his maniacal practice habit to chase quarterbacks back side. UCF went undefeated in 2017 with Griffin as the face of the program.

He’ll be firing passes to receivers against the Houston Texans. Brady isn’t quitting the game after losing a Super Bowl. That’s not him. So he will be there on opening day. He’s also why New England games are always must-see TV. That’s why I have three Patriots games among my top-10 games for the 2018 NFL season.

Borland led the 49ers in tackles as a rookie and was named to the all-rookie team and was a Pro Bowl alternate before stepping away for a post-playing career that includes a company he started, T Mindful, to help bring meditation into sports.About 10 percent of the time, I miss 3 to 5 percent of the game, Borland said.I look back and I’m happy that I played. I’m not wistful. You miss big games. I miss the locker room camaraderie. Sometimes I miss the lifestyle. It’s great to get around old players because in a society where people like to dance around topics, it’s good to be around like-minded people who cut the BS and are able to rib one another. I enjoyed that. But I don’t long for it or reminisce daily.

He recovered in time to appear in all 16 games with 11 starts as an NFL rookie.

Kids these days, man.

We used to do 1,500 up-downs! Griffin announces. Nice and hot. When you hit the ground, there’s sweat. A pool of sweat. Now they have that AC blowing there. We liked it nice and hot!

It was different.

I can’t imagine that any of the on-air YES crew would enjoy sitting down to watch a ballgame only to be accosted by a steady roll of stat graphics and discussions of stats, stats and more stats, now including projected distances, launch angles and exit velocities.

As for YES’ capitulation to the foolish fad in posting that computerized strike-zone box over live pitches, placing any artificial element over live play is anathema to sensible television.

That these single-dimension boxes are frequently misleading, often demonstrably wrong and always irrelevant apparently doesn’t dawn on the gimmick-headed shot-callers.

And if a network claims that its survey shows fans love the box, I have several hundred readers who would like to be surveyed. They find it needlessly distracting, annoying, intrusive and insulting.

Sherman, who joined the San Francisco 49ers this offseason after the Seahawks released him coming off of a ruptured Achilles, said that Four years, guys rotate in, rotate out, and so we had kind of heard all his stories, we had kind of heard every story, every funny anecdote that he had. And honestly because he just recycles them. And they’re cool stories, they’re great for team chemistry and building, et cetera, et cetera. But we had literally heard them all. We could recite them before he even started to say them.

Right now it’s unfair to give a timeline as well with him, Licht said. We’re very fortunate that it wasn’t life-threatening for him or the [driver]. We’ll probably hold him he’ll be out of OTAs, and in training camp we’ll have a better idea of how far along he is.

Due to an ACL tear late in LSU’s 2016 season, Beckwith fell to No. 107 in last year’s draft.
