He gave me a little juke

ATLANTA - Colts owner Jim Irsay is handling pro football business again, leading Indianapolis bid for the 2018 Super Bowl. Tanoh Kpassagnon Womens Jersey . Irsay underwent treatment after he was arrested for having $29,000 in cash and bottles of prescription drugs in his car. The NFL owners meetings are Irsays first public appearance since the arrest. Irsay, 54, said Monday he is "feeling decent," but would not say if he would address his personal situation with the owners on Tuesday, insisting he is in Atlanta representing the bid committee. "Im here, if you want to talk about the Super Bowl bid or the Colts, Im here to answer that," Irsay said. "Im not going to really say anything beyond that." Irsay faces four felony counts of possession of controlled substances. He likely will be disciplined by the league at some point. Asked if his arrest could affect the Indianapolis bid, Irsay was evasive. "Im excited about the bid and the job weve done in the past," he said. "I know in terms of trying to intertwine questions, that is your job, but Im not really addressing those issues. Im here like always to try to get this Super Bowl for Indianapolis." He said hes kept informed on team affairs, although the Colts are being run by his daughter, Carlie, and general manager Ryan Grigson. "I havent been in a coma or anything like that," Irsay said. "Ive been clued into everything thats been going on the last few months. Its good to be at this meeting, really kind of focus on the Super Bowl bid. Im really not going to talk about any personal medical issues or that sort of thing, but just grateful to be back, and certainly have a lot of appreciation for the support Ive received. Im all in. "It feels good to be back and Im excited about our chances tomorrow." Indianapolis, which hosted a highly successful Super Bowl in 2012 when the Giants beat the Patriots, is competing with New Orleans and Minneapolis for the 2018 game. Irsay sounded eager to get back into the daily work of running his franchise, although he admitted he is not finished with his rehab. "Its a love. The league is dear to me," he said. "Family business, youre blessed to be part of something like that. Its a great privilege to be part of the NFL; you dont take for granted ... you just treasure it. I kind of feel like were getting ready for a big game. Its one of those win-lose situations." ___ AP NFL website: and ;Patrick Mahomes II Jersey. However, the 38-year-old is in no hurry to sign with another team. "Im not in a rush.

New video, though, shows Tomlin inching closer to the field before Baltimore kickoff returner Jacoby Jones nearly collided with him in last Thursdays 22-20 win by the Ravens. KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh released video Monday indicating Tomlin took a sizable step toward the field as Jones broke into the open, and didnt move until Jones was nearly on top of the coach. Tomlin actually put his right foot on green grass as part of a stutter step move out of harms way. It wasnt early enough to stop Jones from moving to his right just before being tackled by Pittsburghs Cortez Allen after a 73-yard return. Tomlin was not penalized, though he is facing disciplinary action. Tomlin said following the game he was watching the play unfold on one of the scoreboards and lost his "placement" on the field. "I do it quite often, like everybody else in the National Football League," Tomlin said. "I was wrong, I accept responsibility for it." Steelers safety Ryan Clark defended Tomlin, saying being on the field is common even though rules require players, coaches and support staff to stand behind a large white strip of grass that separates the field from the benches. Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey. "Im always on the field. I sit on the field, but I try to sit on it away from anything," Clark said Monday. The 12-year veteran said he stepped onto the field while Pittsburghs offence tried a potential tying 2-point conversion against the Ravens in the final minutes "so I could see." Clark added there was no malice in Tomlins actions. "There was no intent at all," Clark said. "When he noticed he was in the way, he got out of the way. If he tripped (Jones), tackled him, itd be a different story." The NFL fined the New York Jets $100,000 in 2010 when cameras caught strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi tripping a Miami player on the sideline. Alosi was suspended by the Jets and eventually resigned after the season. Jones said after the game that "if I was (Tomlin), I would do the same thing" and didnt blame the coach for Jones inability to score. That doesnt mean Jones is ruling out the idea Tomlin knew what he was doing. "Before I got to him, he was halfway on the field," Jones said. "He gave me a little juke, and I tried to juke him." ___ AP NFL website: ;Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
