Teams have to make decisions about exercising options on their 2015 first-round picks by May 3 and some calls are easier than others.
One of the easiest is the one that the Titans have to make. Quarterback Marcus Mariota was their top pick that year as they tried to find a long-term answer at starting quarterback. Mariota’s had some ups and downs in his first three seasons, but the Titans made the playoffs last year and he’s shown enough signs of future success that keeping him for a fifth year likely didn’t require much contemplation.
The Bruins outshot the Maple Leafs 42-30 but their top line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak, so dominant in the first two games, did not get a point in Game 3.
I don’t think they’ll be frustrated at all, Boston coach Bruce Cassidy. They’ve been through — Pasta not as much, the other two have been through — a lot of playoffs. Sometimes it’s going to go your way. Sometimes it’s not. Pasta had a lot of good looks that he’s going to finish. We saw it in the first two games. Clearly, it’s going to give them motivation. It should. When you Authentic David Rundblad Jersey keep them off the scoresheet, it’ll be talked about. At the end of the day, I don’t think it’ll bother them one bit.
I understand it happens, Pouncey said, via Greg Beachem of the Associated Press. It was just the way it happened. I was there for seven years, and for them to not bring me in, sit me down and let me know what was going on, especially the fact that me and my brother (Maurkice) worked out there every single day this offseason, sat down and met with the coaches every single day 鈥?it just didn’t sit well with me. Guys come in and get cut all the time, but I was there for seven years. They could have at least brought me in, instead of texting my agent and ignoring my phone calls and texts all day.
Elite Kids Jon Merrill Jersey Pouncey said the experience will provide some added motivation for him as he joins the Chargers and seeks a playoff appearance for the first time in his career.
Elite Kids Ronnie Lott Jersey I’m a guy that doesn’t need much fuel to add to the fire, but when you do stuff like that and add fuel to the fire, it just makes you want to prove everybody wrong. So I’m excited for it, Pouncey said.
