The Ravens have signed restricted free-agent wide receiver Willie Snead of the Saints to a two-year, potential $10 million offer sheet, ESPN.com reported, citing an unidentified source.
It appears the Saints aren’t likely to match the offer during the five-day window, thus not only making Snead a Raven but also likely ending the chances that Baltimore would sign Dez Bryant, in whom they expressed interest when he was released this week by the Cowboys.
Snead’s offer is worth $7 million with $3.4 million in incentives and includes a $2 million signing bonus, ESPN’s source said.
An underrated slot receiver in 2015 and ’16, Snead, 25, had 141 catches for 1,879 yards and seven touchdowns in that span, but he had only eight receptions in limited time in 2017 as he was suspended three games to start the season because of a DUI and then sustained a hamstring injury.
“This guy’s good. This guy’s going to show it. He’s going to show up,” Maddon said, “and the thing (is) as a manager, as a coach, I’m just trying to get him to respect this pitch and then respect that next pitch, but don’t try to over-evaluate it or make it more complicated than that because your stuff, I don’t know, top 10 in baseball probably.”
Brent Suter (1-2, 5.68 ERA) pitches for Milwaukee. The left-hander is 0-2 with a 5.75 ERA in his last four starts.
It was the Sharks’ worst loss in playoff history. Detroit blanked San Jose 6-0 in the 1995 Western Conference semifinals.
“We had a laundry list of issues today,” San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said. “It’s obviously not pretty, we know we have to do better across the board. It’s on us to respond now.”
Eakin started the scoring barrage when he deflected Brayden McNabb’s wrist shot from the point past Jones 4:31 into the game. Before the public-address announcer could trumpet the game’s first goal, Haula finished Tuch’s rush to the net 26 seconds later with a sniper past Jones to double Vegas’ lead.
Marchessault made it 3-0 when he fired a shot from inside the circle past Jones, notching his first career playoff goal. Tuch capped the scoring in the opening period when he sliced through four defenders, made a swift move to his forehand for a wrist shot that beat Jones for a power-play goal.
Jones’ night ended 3:28 into the second when Smith threaded a pass to Theodore, who promptly tipped it into the twine to give Vegas a 5-0 lead.
While Kane was called for a game misconduct, Joe Pavelski went off at the same time for slashing, giving Vegas a 5-3 edge on the ice. The Golden Knights took full advantage, as Miller’s one-timer blazed past Dell to make it 6-0 at 4:32 of the third.
