The annual draft serves as an unofficial deadline for players languishing on the trade block since the start of the NFL's league year. Once the draft gives way to offseason minicamps in May and June, there's little incentive to unload a proven veteran for future draft picks unable to contribute during the upcoming season. It's worth noting, however, that April is the league's smokescreen season. Posturing takes precedence over action. While rumors run rampant throughout the month, the players swapping teams on draft weekend are typically on the fringes of the roster, such as Jamar Taylor, Zac Stacy, Bryce Brown and Tim Dobbins. Going back to 2010, the "marquee" draft-day trades have involved Jason Campbell, LeGarrette Blount and Stevie Johnson. That's not to say blockbusters are unheard of leading up to the draft. The Jets traded All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Buccaneers for the draft's No. 13 overall pick during the week of the 2013 draft. The Eagles traded their own Pro Bowl cornerback, Asante Samuel, to the Falcons the day before the 2012 draft kicked off. In order of most likely to least likely, below are 10 candidates to be traded before the end of the 2017 NFL Draft (April 27-29 in Philadelphia). 1. Marshawn Lynch, retired running back: As NFL Network's Michael Silver and Mike Garafolo reported last Friday, Lynch is nearing an agreement to come out of retirement as the power back in Oakland's high-octane offense. Once he irons out a contract, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is fully expected to work out a minor trade with his counterpart in Seattle, John Schneider. The two executives have a friendly relationship going back to their shared time in Ted Thompson's front office with the Packers. By the time the Raiders open their draft's war room on the 27th, they should know whether or not running back remains a position of need. 2. Sheldon Richardson, Jets defensive lineman: The 2013 Defensive Rookie of the Year was dangled at last year's trade deadline, with Gang Green reportedly seeking a first-round pick as compensation. Still in shopping mode, Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan will likely have to settle for a mid-round pick if he's intent on dealing the "odd man out" of his defensive-line rotation. Although Richardson has been linked to another player on this list -- Bengals backup QB AJ McCarron -- in unsubstantiated rumors https://www.shopsenatorsonline.com/6-andrew-hammond-jersey, it's hard to make sense of that swap from the Jets' point of view. Will any team roll the dice on a Pro Bowl-caliber defensive lineman at $8 million with a chance to recoup a compensatory pick in the 2019 draft? 3. Mychal Kendricks, Eagles linebacker: Kendricks hasn't been on the trade block since the day he entered the league as a second-round pick in 2012 -- it just seems that way https://www.shopsenatorsonline.com/16-cody-ceci-jersey. Following 2015 pre-draft trade reports, the former Cal star openly questioned his own future in Philadelphia only to sign a four-year extension later that summer. "The sky is the limit for Mychal," former teammate DeMeco Ryans raved at the time, "but I think before it's said and done, he could be the best inside linebacker in this league." A year later, Kendricks fell out of favor in new coordinator Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme. Now two years later, the Eagles are once again shopping the 26-year-old linebacker. He's available on the cheap for a 3-4 defense in need of an athletic inside linebacker capable of hanging with tight ends in coverage. 4. Malcolm Butler, Patriots cornerback: NFL rules mandate Butler was ineligible to be traded until he signed his first-round tender, which finally happened Tuesday. His agent exchanged proposals with New Orleans' management last month, but coach Sean Payton made it clear he was unwilling to part with the No. 11 overall pick as compensation for signing the cornerback to an offer sheet. Now that Butler has signed his tender, will the Patriots entertain the idea of flipping him to the Saints in an effort to recoup the No https://www.shopsenatorsonline.com/58-thomas-chabot-jersey. 32 overall pick which changed hands in last month's Brandin Cooks trade? 5. Richard Sherman, Seahawks cornerback: The disconnect between the three-time All-Pro and the Seahawks is real. Sherman has confirmed that both sides are listening to offers. Garafolo reiterated Tuesday that Seattle is open to a trade, with an asking price that remains first- and third-round draft picks. "We're talking Darrelle Revis Jets-to-Buccaneers type of deal," Garafolo originally reported last week. "That's what's going to get this thing done." As of early this week, Garafolo added, no team has come close to satisfying those demands. For what it's worth, the Saints and Titans -- each in need of an impact cornerback -- are the two teams with multiple first-round draft picks. 6. Alfred Morris, Cowboys running back: The Cowboys re-signed Darren McFadden to operate as Ezekiel Elliott's backup, which means Morris is on borrowed time in Dallas https://www.shopsenatorsonline.com/22-david-dziurzynski-jersey. Due to collect $1.2 million this season, he might just be untradeable at this stage of his career. Perhaps owner Jerry Jones can use him as a chip to flip draft spots with a running-back needy team and move up a few spots in the same round. 7. AJ McCarron, Bengals quarterback: Director of player personnel Duke Tobin made it clear that the phones are open, but the Bengals aren't serious about dealing McCarron if reports of a first-round asking price are true. "He plays a very valuable position: backup quarterback," Tobin explained at the scouting combine in early March. "And you're always one play away from going to your backup quarterback. We view our team as a team that can challenge." The problem with paying an exorbitant rate for the services of McCarron is that he's likely to be exposed as a high-end backup ideally suited for the role of premium starter insurance. 8. Jimmy Garoppolo, Patriots quarterback: Whereas the Bengals are willing to unload McCarron at an inflated price, the Patriots are treating their own backup quarterback as if he's untouchable, according to a chorus of NFL insiders singing in unison. Cleveland has the draft-pick ammunition and the inclination to make one more, last-ditch run at a gifted signal-caller who dazzled in his first two career starts, but the Browns "do not seem to believe there's any hope there," NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport recently explained. The Patriots firmly believe Garoppolo has franchise-quarterback potential, which is why they view him as a viable candidate for the franchise tag next offseason. For what it's worth, VP of player personnel Nick Caserio did not rule out a Garoppolo trade when he spoke at Tuesday's pre-draft news conference. "Whatever we think is best for our team for 2017, for that season, then that's what we'll do," Caserio said. "However that manifests itself not exactly sure, but that's where the focus is -- trying to put together the best team possible for the 2017 season." 9. Eric Decker, Jets wide receiver: It didn't bode well for Decker's future in Florham Park when a pair of veteran beat writers predicted within 24 hours of one another in early March that the veteran receiver isn't long for the roster David Legwand Jersey. If Decker is such an obvious candidate for the discard pile, why isn't he higher on this list? It's rare to see a player traded when he's months away from passing an NFL physical. Decker is no sure bet to be ready for training camp after undergoing major shoulder and hip surgeries last fall. Unless the rebuilding Jets are prepared to waive him with a failed physical designation, Decker might just stick around for a few more months. 10. Kirk Cousins, Redskins quarterback: If a trade was going to happen, the most logical time would have been early in free agency when new 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan was looking for his next quarterback. Rumors were running wild, Cousins was enjoying unprecedented leverage and the Redskins had to be concerned they would be left holding the bag when their quarterback exits stage right in 2018. Since then, however, the ice has thawed. Cousins feels "very much supported" by the front office, and team president Bruce Allen views the 2018 franchise tag worth nearly $35 million as an "option year" if the sides can't reach agreement on a long-term deal by the July 15 deadline. At this point, a draft-weekend trade would come as a surprise. "I'm not expecting anything to happen," Cousins said last week. More trade candidates: Brock Osweiler, Browns quarterback; Carlos Hyde, 49ers running back; Nelson Agholor, Eagles wide receiver; Matt Jones, Redskins running back; Stephone Anthony, Saints linebacker

(ADDISON GEORGE / SPECIAL TO THE MORNING CALL) Stephen MillerContact ReporterOf The Morning Call Whitehall hopes Monday s victory over Nazareth starts the winning streak it needs. With more than half its regular-season schedule complete, Whitehall was still seeking a win to change the direction of its season.The Zephyrs hope Monday represented a breakthrough. Matt Dobeck's sixth-inning RBI single gave Whitehall its second lead against Nazareth. He protected this one to the finish by retiring the final four Blue Eagles he faced to give the Zephyrs a 5-4 Eastern Pennsylvania Conference Skyline baseball win at Nazareth Boro Park.Dobeck earned the victory with 2 2/3 shutout innings of relief. He struck out four, walked none and allowed just two hits to earn some personal and team-wide redemption. Nazareth (7-6 overall, 6-3 EPC) beat Whitehall 7-5 last week when Cade Stoneback cracked a game-winning three-run home run off Dobeck.

Dobeck added three hits, one run scored and an RBI.Whitehall finished with 12 hits, a welcome sight for coach Shaun O'Boyle. Many EPC coaches pegged the Zephyrs as an EPC Skyline contender heading into this season thanks to their core of returning players. Whitehall hasn't hit well enough to stick with the top teams in the division. I just got done telling these guys, we're far from our potential right now, O'Boyle said. We've got to use this win as something to get us rolling. If we [hit like] that, we're going to win a lot of games, he added. At this point, it's just being consistent hitting, being more selective at the plate. Most of us did a better job being selective https://www.shopfornyrangers.com/38-joe-kocur-jersey.

They followed a five-error game Saturday against Northampton by making four errors Monday.Nick Skirtich had two hits and two RBIs to lead Nazareth's offense Monday. The Blue Eagles couldn't overcome their defensive miscues. This is the EPC, Wolf said. You can't be giving them four, five extra outs a game and expect to win a baseball game https://www.shopfornyrangers.com/31-james-sheppard-jersey. It's tough because we didn't execute.

I am not going to get into a long statement here, but only point out the obvious .
* Being out in the woods all the time does not make you a researcher - One who is observant but yet takes notice of the world around them and seeing life physically is real.
Knowing the patterns & behavior of wildlife will teach us a lot
All living creatures are living organisms that are flesh & blood . Nothing is beyond that fact.
Ask any professional photographer who does take a photos of nature & wildlife - There photos will not lie but only reveal what is truly there.
If your photos are no more than trees & bushes do not try to convince people of what's not there.
If you are the only one who can see what others can not - sorry but there is nothing in it.
Your nothing special compared to anyone else - what makes you a researcher ?
A real Researcher does not lie or hoax to gain attention or popularity .
A real Researcher provides real conclusive evidence. And does not fake it.
A real Researcher has real photos of clear images .
A real Researcher takes notes and observes nature & changes .
WHAT ARE YOU ?
ARE YOU POPULAR BECAUSE OF ALL THE PHOTOS YOU SHARE THAT YOU SAY HAS A BIGFOOT IN THEM & OTHERS BELIEVE THEM TO BECAUSE YOUR SAYING SO? YOU GAINED FALSE RESPECT BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY GULLIBLE BIGFOOT ENTHUSIASTS OUT HERE THAT WILL BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU TELL THEM.
MY OWN FRIENDS IN THIS COMMUNITY ARE DECEIVED AND ITS A SHAME BUT I WILL SPEAK OUT AGAINST ALL FALSEHOOD .

Why would the Government keep the existence of Sasquatch/Bigfoot a secret ?
* This a good question!
Well first of all a few simple facts and to keep this straight and to the point ;
The Government is simply a bunch of control freaks and strive and live off of secretacy.
For years they have been with holding information that can change the world & put them into a panic of fear and confusion.
The Government may be protecting the people but at the same time they are punishing us.
Yes they would be the few that couldn't handle the truth but there are the ones who have that sense of already knowing or know because them have witnessed the obvious .
The other issue is the Economy:
How would the public existence effect this?
* Well back in 1980 when the "SPOTTED OWL" was discovered it was immediately put on the endangered species list and all logging came to a cease and therefore being a big part of the economy it put workers out of work and businesses crashed.
What would happen in today's Economy if a mass published alert be released to the world that We truly do have an unknown primate living among us!
* This would possibly create a great disturbance among the American people and the economy with become effected .
Although you have Organizations such as the ECBRO out researching and working at trying to provide proof & solid evidence to protect such species so they may live in peace & harmony.
This is something to consider but I am convinced that is more that meets the human eye and more that the common mind can comprehend.

Well, Bigfoot Bounty just finished airing. We just got done with the After Show, and the reviews are coming in from left to right. And, it seems that they are mixed. Well, I going to hopefully explain to you why I like the show.
I think the main reason why people was sketchy about the show was the name "$10 Million Bigfoot Bounty" Which cause people to think that they are going to give the contestants 12 gauge shot guns and go out into the woods and shoot at everything that moves; like I stated in the after show. Well it's not. Yes, they were given guns tonight, but there were DNA extractor type guns, that doesn't harm the animal at all it just extracts DNA form the animal so that they can give it to Dr. Disotell for examination.
The format of the show is just like any reality game show. Basically it's the Bigfoot version of Survivor. The first challenge was called the Field Test, where Dean Cain give a certain type of task for them to do. Which was the DNA extract.
Before they went to the other task, they did a group meeting around the campfire and Dr. Disotell ask if anyone has seen a Bigfoot, a few people raised there hands. But, they mainly focus on Justin Smeja's alleged Bigfoot account. Where he claimed to have shot and killed two Bigfoots. And he claimed that he choke out one of the Bigfoot's to put it out of his misery. Which, if his report is true, then I don't agree with that. However, we brought up in the SU (Squatch Unlimited) chat-room that claim was contradicting his other claims which was: It choke on it's own blood. So, I'm not for sure if he said just to bring drama to the show, or if Spike TV did some editing.
Then the other task was for them to go out into the field can collect any evidence that they can find. But, before they do that they did a night investigation, which yielded some pretty interesting results. They heard some vocalizations. Now, since Rictor appeared in the After Show, please go and watch that cause he explained in quite of bit of detail of what he heard.
So, then we get to the evidence portion of the show. Now, one team found prints, another found pine cone seeds in a cave, some alleged hair, one team didn't bring nothing to the table, another brought elk poop, another brought a bone with teeth marks, some more scat, more scat, even more scat. Now, this was the portion that I liked very much. The reason being is that Dr. Disotell and Dean Cain really went hardcore on this evidence.
The tracks were bear prints, the pine-cone seeds didn't really come up with anything, the alleged hair was actually moss, they really didn't care about the bone, the scat didn't "indicated primate DNA", there wasn't much to go on the elk poop, they couldn't test the scat, the other scat test they took off the wrong end, the pine-cone wasn't much to go one. Now, for the part I like, they actually grilled them individually on why there evidence was acceptable or not.
The last segment was the elimination and the people that was eliminated was a couple, for not bring evidence to the table.
And, basically that was a summery of the first show. The reason, why I like the show is that it actually focus on the DNA aspect of Bigfoot. I don't see anything wrong with the show, the reason being I looking at this show from an entertainment aspect. Which people is not seeing, if you look at this as entertainment just like Finding Bigfoot, then I sure that you will enjoy this show.
Now if there is something that I am missing please tell me because I would like to know.
