wo seasons with the Boston Celtics. The 6-fo from love520's blog

GREEN BAY, Wis. Carlos Sanchez Moreno Colombia Jersey . -- Not long after they were drafted this spring by the Green Bay Packers, Kenny Clark and Dean Lowry got a call from the fiery leader of the defensive line.Mike Daniels was on the phone, and he needed them to get ready quickly.The Packers will be down a veteran up front early in the season because of the four-game suspension of Mike Pennell, so Clark and Lowry must be ready to play right away. That means there is no time to waste in training camp for the rookies.Im not going to lie to you, Daniels said. We need them ready like yesterday.After Daniels and Letroy Guion, the Packers will be short on experience up front to start the season.Veteran B.J. Raji is on a one-year hiatus from football. Pennel emerged as a competent backup in 2015, but the third-year player will miss the first four games for violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy. Datone Jones has been moved to a hybrid pass-rushing role in which hell line up more like an outside linebacker.Clark, the Packers first-round pick out of UCLA, could emerge as a starter right away. Lowry, a fourth-round pick from Northwestern, could see significant snaps as a backup.Coach Mike McCarthy doesnt seem concerned, at least this early in camp. He said he has been satisfied with the progress of his rookies so far since the offseason program. There are five preseason games and to get the young guys in shape.Its part of the annual shuffling in Green Bay anyway, which surrounds a talented veteran core with a healthy complement of younger players.Two years ago, the youth was concentrated in the receiving corps; last year, it was cornerback.This training camp, the defensive line is front and center.Lets face it, this games about big men and the big men have to control the balance of what (happens) on the field and frankly in the locker room, too, McCarthy said. So the consistency of our young D-linemen will be critical to how that group grows.In Daniels, McCarthy has an ideal mentor for the rookies. A fourth-round pick in 2012, Daniels has turned into a stabilizing and energetic presence up front.The Packers held their first practice with pads on Thursday. It had barely started when a brief scuffle broke out during a drill. Not surprisingly, Daniels was right in the middle, mixing things up with an offensive lineman.Hes naturally aggressive like that, four-time Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton said. Hes got that leadership quality too where he wants to get other people going. Get other people fired up, too.For Daniels, the tutoring of Clark and Lowry started months ago, in phone calls to the rookies a day or two after they were each drafted in late April.Theyre not putting any kind of pressure on me. Theyre just making sure, like, `Man, you need to be solid by Game 1 and we want you to be good, Clark said. Im taking all of that in. Im excited for it. I love it.Game notes House Speaker Paul Ryan, a lifelong Packers fan, attended practice with his family. The Wisconsin Republican talked football with team president Mark Murphy; met his favorite player, quarterback Aaron Rodgers; and addressed the team at midfield. Look, Im used to giving a lot of speeches, I was actually pretty nervous talking to these guys, Ryan said. As just a lifelong Packer fan, it was just a pretty cool experience, just to meet the team. ... The Packers signed WR Harvey Binford on Thursday. Binford played for the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League in 2015-16. ... The team is off on Friday and returns to practice on Saturday.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Felipe Aguilar Colombia Jersey . R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. Carlos Sanchez Moreno Jersey .

He was traded to Orlando a year ago, and averaged 3.7 points and 1.8 assists in 55 games last season.Shabazz is a talented young player that we are pleased to add to our program.

He fits into our culture in how we want to play, both on and off the ball.Turner told reporters he had admired former Blazer Brandon Roy.I was a big B-Roy fan back in the day in college, Turner said. If it worked for him, itll work for me.Portland was one of the biggest surprises of last season, advancing to the second round of the playoffs with one of the youngest rosters in the league after losing four starters in the offseason.---AP Basketball Writer Jon Krawczynski contributed to this report.
