RENTON, Wash. Sheldon Rankins Jersey . -- After two days of watching players leave, the Seattle Seahawks finally made an addition, agreeing with former Jacksonville wide receiver Taylor Price on a one-year deal. Seattle also reportedly re-signed defensive tackle Tony McDaniel on Wednesday. NFL.com reported McDaniel agreeing to a two-year deal to return to Seattle. The team had not confirmed McDaniels deal and messages for his representatives were not returned. Price missed most of the past two seasons with foot injuries. Prices representatives confirmed the one-year, minimum salary contract. The additions came after the Seahawks released defensive end Chris Clemons earlier on Wednesday and saw unrestricted free agents Golden Tate (Detroit), Clinton McDonald (Tampa Bay) and Chris Maragos (Philadelphia) leave for new destinations.

Marshon Lattimore Saints Jersey .Y. -- Sore nose and all, Sidney Crosby had a goal and three assists to help Pittsburgh beat Buffalo 5-3 on Friday night, snapping the Penguins mini-slump and slowing the Sabres late-season surge.CANTON, Ohio - Andre Williams ran up some big numbers at Boston College. The fourth-round draft pick is showing glimpses that can do it for the New York Giants, too. Williams had seven carries for 48 yards and scored on a 3-yard run in a 17-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night in the preseason-opening Hall of Fame Game. "It gives me confidence. I feel like Im supposed to be here," said Williams, who led the nation with 2,177 yards rushing last season. "Im part of the team now." And a more important part with David Wilson sidelined after sustaining his second neck injury in less than a year. Filling the No. 2 spot behind newly acquired starter Rashad Jennings, the Heisman Trophy finalist helped provide the Giants re-tooled backfield a 1-2 punch. "I though he played well, and that was encouraging," coach Tom Coughlin said. "David Wilsons injury not-withstanding, its very important to us no matter what, because you need a natural rotation." Williams score, which came after a 21-yard scamper off left tackle, put the Giants up 7-3 late in the first quarter. Rookie receiver Corey Washington scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 73-yard pass up the right sideline from backup Ryan Nassib with 13:18 remaining. Washington reached back to catch the partly under-thrown pass, then stepped around flat-footed defender Kamaal McIlwain. Nassib, competing for the backup spot, went 7 of 12 for 139 yards. Starter Eli Manning played three series, and finished 6 of 7 for 43 yards, but lost a fumble. For Buffalo, starting quarterback EJ Manuel had several lapses during two series. He completed just 2 of 7 attempts for 19 yards, and nearly had a pass intercepted by linebacker Jacquian Williams inside the New York 10. Manuel never looked off his intended target Sammy Watkins and was fortunate to have Williams bat the ball down. "I would have liked to throw a touchdown pass or to score a touchdown while I was in, but its our first game," said Manuel, the second-year player who has been inconsistent through the first two weeks of training camp. "We goot our feet wet, and were looking forward to moving on to playing Carolina. Bobby Hebert Youth Jersey. quot; Coach Doug Marrone didnt sound as positive regarding the play of any of his quarterbacks. "Obviously, the performances were not good for a win," Marrone said. "Weve got to get better, all of them." Bills backup Jeff Tuel hit Robert Woods for a 2-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-goal to put Buffalo ahead 10-7 early in the second quarter. Tuel finished 12 of 17 for 74 yards and an interception. Watkins, the Bills first-round pick, was held without a catch after being targeted three times. Two passes from Manuel directed Watkins way were tipped. Manuel also was late in finding Watkins flying up the left sideline, and overthrew him by a few yards. It was a disappointing debut for Watkins, who had made numerous highlight-reel catches during the first two weeks of training camp. Dan Carpenter made two field goals, including a 51-yarder. New Yorks Brandon McManus hit a 47-yard field goal The Bills are coming off a 6-10 season in which they extended their playoff drought to 14 seasons — the NFLs longest active streak. The Giants (7-9) had a busy off-season attempting to restock a team that has missed the playoffs in four of the past five seasons. The NFL unveiled a few new wrinkles that will run through the first two weeks of the preseason. New Yorks Josh Brown hit two and Carpenter hit his extra-point attempt, all of which were snapped from the 15-yard line rather than the 2. NOTES: Giants TE Daniel Fells left because of a sprained knee. ... Coaches and players on the sidelines also had the opportunity to view pictures of plays on tablets and in colour — an improvement over the black-and-white still photos that were printed off on paper. Marrone said his tablet initially didnt work. The problem was fixed and he used the technology in the second half. ... The game was played a day after the seven-member 2014 class was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The group included former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan and former Bills receiver Andre Reed. ' ' '

    Edmonton, AB (SportsNetwork. Joe Montana Youth Jersey .com) - The Edmonton Oilers fired head coach Dallas Eakins on Monday. Eakins was in just his second season with the perennially rebuilding Oilers, who reside in the Western Conference basement with a 7-19-5 record. They are tied with the Carolina Hurricanes for the fewest points in the league at 19. TSN is reporting that general manager Craig MacTavish will take over the coaching duties on an interim basis. He coached the Oilers for eight seasons from 2000-09. Eakins dismissal comes as the Oilers are in a free fall, having lost 15 of their last 16 games (1-11-4). Edmonton went 29-44-9 last season under Eakins, who landed his first NHL head coaching job on the strength of a four-year stint directing the Toronto Marlies, the top minor league affiliate of the Maple Leafs. Eakins was the Oilers fourth head coach since MacTavishs run. Edmonton hasnt reached the playoffs since losing to the Hurricanes in the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals. Y.A. Tittle Jersey .

    ISTANBUL - Aaron Ramsey and Lukas Podolski each scored twice to give Arsenal a 4-1 victory over Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday, but the London side came short of its aim of finishing top of Group D. Jason Dickinson Jersey .Arsenal had already qualified for the last 16 of the competition and was playing for a chance to overtake Borussia Dortmund to top spot in the group, but the German side drew 1-1 with Anderlecht to secure top billing in the group.Galatasaray — already eliminated from the last 16 after finishing bottom — was playing for pride.There was a little bit of frustration ... we knew at half time we needed to score six without conceding, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. Unfortunately it wasnt enough. We finished with 13 points and did the job tonight.Podolski opened the scoring two minutes into the game, shooting high into the top left corner. Eight minutes later, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain drew two defenders before passing to Ramsey, who powered the ball into the bottom left corner. A fierce volley by Ramsey from 25 yards out in the 28th gave Arsenal its third goal.Ramsey described the goal as one of the best of his career.The ball came to the edge of the box and I thought why not, Ill have a go ... And I had a go, Ramsey said.In the first half, Galatasaray found it hard to cope with Arsenals quick and accurate passing despite the fact that the London side had left many of its first-choice players behind. The Turkish side improved in the second half, but many of its chances lacked finish.Galatasarays consolation came from a free kick by Wesley Sneijder in the 86th minute from just outside the penalty area.In the final minute of added time, Podolski made it 4-1 when he rounded the goalkeeper to slot the ball into the bottom right corner.

Mike Modano Stars Jersey . Rodgers was ruled out on Friday by Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. Matt Flynn will make his second consecutive start for the Packers.PRETORIA, South Africa -- As the girlfriend he shot in the head lay dead or dying in his home, a weeping, praying Oscar Pistorius knelt at her side and struggled in vain to help her breathe by holding two fingers in her clenched mouth, a witness testified Thursday at the double-amputee runners murder trial. "I shot her. I thought she was a burglar. I shot her," radiologist Johan Stipp, a neighbour, recalled Pistorius saying. The worried neighbour had entered Pistorius home after hearing screams. By that time, the celebrated athlete had carried Reeva Steenkamps bloodied body downstairs following the fatal nighttime shooting in his bathroom. A few minutes after he arrived, Stipp said, Pistorius went back upstairs -- the area where he had shot the 29-year-old model -- and returned. At that point, Stipp said he was concerned that the gun used in the shooting had not been recovered and that a distraught Pistorius was going to harm himself. The testimony did not address what Pistorius did when he went upstairs. Stipps account in a Pretoria court was the first detailed, public description of the immediate aftermath of the shooting in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year. Pistorius is charged with premeditated murder after shooting Steenkamp three times out of four shots through the toilet door, with prosecutors trying to build a case that the Olympian intentionally killed Steenkamp after a loud argument. At his bail hearing last year, Pistorius said in a statement read by his lawyer that after he realized he had shot Steenkamp, thinking mistakenly that she was an intruder, he pulled on his prosthetic legs and tried to kick down the toilet door. He said he finally gave up and bashed the door in with a cricket bat. Inside, he said he found Steenkamp, slumped over but still alive. He said he lifted her body and carried her downstairs to seek medical help. On Thursday, as Stipp recalled the sometimes grisly details through questioning by the prosecutor, Pistorius bent forward on the wooden court bench and put his hand over his face. Clutching what appeared to be black rosary beads, Pistorius then moved his hands to cover both ears as Stipp described the scene at the athletes villa sometime after 3 a.m. Pistorius stayed that way for a while in the courtroom, even when one of his lawyers reached back and touched him on the head in an apparent gesture of reassurance. "Oscar was crying all the time," Stipp continued. "He was praying to God, Please let her live." "Oscar said he would dedicate "his life and her life to God" if she would live, Stipp said. The chief defence lawyer, Barry Roux, asked Stipp if he thought Pistorius emotions as the ruunner knelt next to Steenkamp were genuine. Blake Comeau Stars Jersey . Stipp said he thought they were. "He looked sincere to me," Stipp said of observing Pistorius minutes after hed fatally shot his girlfriend. "He was crying. There were tears on his face." Prosecutors contend that a person who has just killed someone might immediately feel remorse. Stipp, whose house is behind Pistorius, said he had initially been woken by what he described as a womans screams. After calling private security at the gated community, he said he decided he should go and try to help. When he arrived at Pistorius home, he saw that two other responders were already there -- a man standing outside and a woman near the front door as he walked in. He said he rushed right past them and went inside to see if he could be of assistance. "At the bottom of the stairs ... there was a lady lying on her back on the floor," Stipp said of his first observations. "I went near her and as I bent down, I also noticed a man on the left kneeling by her side. He had his left hand on her right groin, and his right hand, the second and third fingers in her mouth." "It was obvious that she was mortally wounded," Stipp said. "She had no pulse in the neck, she had no peripheral pulse. She had no breathing movements that she made." As a radiologist, Stipp is a medical doctor with years of study, and he said he used his expertise to try to save the woman -- even though he was fairly sure his efforts would be in vain. He noticed a wound in the womans right thigh, in her upper arm and in the right side of the head, and there was brain tissue around the skull. Stipp didnt know the man was Pistorius until later, he said. He had mistakenly thought Pistorius lived in a different house in the gated community. Echoing the assertions of two other state witnesses in the trial, Stipp also maintained that he heard a womans screams before and around the time of the gunshots. That is a significant issue in the case. Prosecutors say there was a fight between Pistorius and Steenkamp and that she was screaming before and perhaps during the shooting. Pistorius says he was the only one to scream, mainly after realizing hed shot his girlfriend by mistake. Roux, the defence lawyer, described the head wound as "terrible, serious, devastating," arguing that Steenkamp could not have screamed during the gunfire because she would not have been able to. "What Im saying to you, when you heard screams, it could not have been the deceased," Roux said to Stipp. "Its medically impossible." It is unclear, however, which of the four shots struck Steenkamps head. ' ' '
