METAIRIE, La. Air Max 270 Sale Cheap . -- The New Orleans Saints?and six-time Pro Bowl guard Jahri Evans agreed to a contract on Wednesday, a fitting signing bonus to go along with quarterback Drew Brees contract extension.A league source told ESPNs Adam Caplan that Evans received a one-year deal.To make room, the Saints are releasing second-year quarterback Garrett Grayson, according to a league source.Evans was already participating in practice with his Saints teammates Wednesday afternoon.The Saints deemed Evans, 33, expendable because of age and salary issues when they released him back in February. But their young guards havent progressed as well as expected and struggled mightily in the preseason. So they brought in Evans for a visit Tuesday after he was released by the Seattle Seahawks.His preseason in Seattle was, we thought, pretty good. Hes in good shape, hes big, he knows our system, Saints coach Sean Payton said Wednesday. Those would be some of the traits that draw us to a move like that or the potential of bringing him in.Evans signed with the Seahawks in early August but was unable to crack the roster since they liked their young starting guards and opted for backups with more flexibility.Evans started at right guard for all 10 of his years with the Saints after being drafted in the fourth round out of Bloomsburg in 2006. Its unclear if he will resume that role immediately, or if the Saints will stick with projected starters Tim Lelito at right guard and Andrus Peat at left guard.Evans established himself as one of the NFLs premier offensive linemen during the past decade. He was named first-team All-Pro four times and signed a seven-year, $56.7 million contract in 2010 that was the richest for a guard in NFL history at the time.Evans started the first 114 games of his career before he began battling a series of nagging injuries in recent years -- including knee and ankle issues that sidelined him for five games last year.Grayson was drafted in the third round out of Colorado State last year, but the Saints apparently didnt see enough progress in Year 2. Its possible they will re-sign him to the practice squad, but its likely they will seek a new developmental QB in next years draft regardless. Authentic Air Max 270 Wholesale . Supported by three-run homers from Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos, the young right-hander went seven strong innings in the Washington Nationals 8-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. Air Max 270 Cheap Online .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. . Tracey comes to the Blue Bombers after spending over a decade with Queens University. Most recently he was the schools assistant football coach.ROME -- Former 100-metre world-record holder Asafa Powell, Jamaican teammate Sherone Simpson and their Canadian physical trainer were formally placed under criminal investigation for allegedly violating Italys doping laws, police said Tuesday. The move came a day after Italian police confiscated unidentified substances in a raid on the hotel where the trio was staying in the northeastern town of Lignano Sabbiadoro after the athletes tested positive for banned stimulants. The trainer is Christopher Xuereb of Toronto. Udine prosecutors believe the trio violated Article 9 of the doping laws, which calls for punishment for whoever administers or consumes banned substances. Police were still analyzing the substances seized to determine if they were legal or not. Being formally placed under investigation is a step up in the Italian justice system from someone simply "informed of the facts," which is how someone can be questioned by police. That occurred after the raid early Monday, when the trio was brought to a local police station. Police told The Associated Press that the raids were executed following a tip from the World Anti-Doping Agency. Paul Doyle, the agent for the two sprinters, said they worked in conjunction with WADA on the raid after becoming suspicious that Xuereb, their newly hired trainer, might have given them supplements laced with a banned substance. Doyle also said that Powell and Simpson were aware of the impending raid, but Xuereb was kept out of the loop. "Asafa and Sherone have been tested more than 100 times each through their career ... and never turned in a positive test," Doyle told The AP in a phone interview. "Now they change their supplements and the first time they get tested, they have a positive test? It has to be something in those new supplements that has caused it. Chris is the one that provided those. "Were not trying to throw Chris under the bus and blame him for anything. We know it has to be something in the supplements he gave them. Were not saying he did anything deliberate, but its in those supplements. We need to figure out what it was that caused this and from there move forward." An email to Xuereb by The Canadian Press seeking comment wasnt returned. It appeared that a Linked In profile belonging to Xuereb had been removed from the popular networking website. The profile, accessible on Monday, said Xuereb is from Toronto and "coaches elite and Olympic athletes (past and present) from Canada, U.S.A. and the Caribbean." The profile said that Xuereb specializes in track and field and soccer and is also a speed/power coach, soft tissue massage and treatment specialist and health and nutritional adviser. Under accomplishments, he lists 2009 World Track and Field and the "2012 Olympics (part of winning gold and silver medals)." WADA director general David Howman likened this case to the doping scandal involving the Austrian cross country skiing and biathlon teams at the 2006 Turin Olympics, when Italian police raided athletes residences following a tip from WADA and the IOC. "Theres nothing new in relation to the way we operate," Howman added. Doyle said Tuesdday the athletes had left Lignano but declined to say where they went. Air Max 270 Wholesale. A hotel receptionist said late Monday that Xuereb had checked out. Powell and Simpson tested positive for the stimulant oxilofrine at the Jamaican championships last month, Doyle announced Sunday, and the agent welcomed the investigation. "That must mean they found something. Thats good," Doyle said. "The whole purpose of the raid was to see what products there were there and hopefully find whatever it was that caused this positive test. Asafa and Sherone were under the assumption and led to believe everything they were taking was completely legal." However, Doyle acknowledged that he and the athletes should have been more responsible about what supplements they used. "In hindsight, we shouldve been given a list, made sure we got a list," Doyle said. "The extent of what I did, I said to (Xuereb) in a text message, that all supplements have to be cleared by me first. He never cleared them with me. He did send them in an invoice that had the names of supplements in there that he had purchased. But that was it. I didnt have the ingredient list. "Just looked at it this morning, 19 different supplements (Powell) was given." Tara Playfair-Scott, Powells publicist, said in a statement that the runner handed over to police one bottle of Aleve containing 50 capsules and one bottle of 5-hour Energy, berry flavoured. Doyle added that the athletes would ask for a backup B sample to be tested. Jamaican athletes have made Lignano their in-season training base for years. A local athletics meet was scheduled for later Tuesday in Lignano and Jamaicans had been scheduled to compete as they do most years. However, neither Powell nor Simpson was on start lists released Monday. The news of the positive tests for Powell and Simpson came the same day that American 100-metre record holder Tyson Gay revealed that he also failed a doping test. Also Monday, discus thrower Allison Randall acknowledged that she was one of the five Jamaican athletes who tested positive for a banned substance at the Jamaican championships last month, along with Powell and Simpson. Randall holds the islands record for the discus throw and competed at the London Olympics. Her statement says she was "shocked and surprised" at the findings and hopes her backup sample will clear her name. The Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association issued a brief statement Monday saying an anti-doping management process has started for the athletes. It did not identify the two other athletes who tested positive. Powell was the last man to hold the 100-metre world record before Usain Bolt broke it in 2008. He also helped the Jamaicans to the 4x100-metre relay gold medal at the 2008 Olympics. Simpson won Olympic gold in the womens 4x100 relay in 2004 and silver in 2012, along with an individual silver in the 100 in 2008. The findings come a month after another Jamaican Olympic champion, Veronica Campbell-Brown, tested positive for a banned diuretic. ------ AP Sports Writers Pat Graham in Denver and Stephen Wilson in London and reports from The Canadian Press contributed. Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball JerseysHockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
