The Lions have some depth on the offensive line antworten

The Vancouver Whitecaps have sent the rights to midfielder Daigo Kobayashi to the New England Revolution for a fourth-round pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft. wholesale jerseys from china . The 31-year-old Kobayashi had come over to the Whitecaps from J-League side Shimizu S-Pulse. He scored three goals and added four assists in 32 appearances for the club last season. Following the season, the Whitecaps declined to pick up his 2014, but still maintained his MLS rights. Kobayashi was currently on trial with the club in preseason training. "Daigo is a good person and player but we just didnt see a spot for him on the team moving forward," said Vancouver head coach Carl Robinson in a statement. "We wish him the best of luck in New England." The Whitecaps are currently in Portland competing in the preseason Rose City Invitational tournament. cheap jerseys nfl . "I just want the playoffs to start," he said in a moment of refreshing truthfulness. Hes not alone. He cant be. They can see the light at the end of the tunnel, a tunnel that has led to darkness so many times before for the bulk of this Toronto roster. cheap jerseys free shipping .S. Olympic hockey team. Dustin Brown had a goal and an assist and Jonathan Quick made 25 saves as the Los Angeles Kings made it back-to-back wins Thursday night with a 2-0 victory over the Flames.The Saskatchewan Roughriders didnt wait long to make their intentions known on CFL Canadian Draft Day. Team president and CEO Jim Hopson announced Thursday morning that they would be selecting offensive lineman Ben Heenan first overall - and they did. Heenan, at 6-foot-four and 310 pounds, is expected to bolster the Roughriders offensive line even if he doesnt earn a starting job right away. "I saw Ben Heenan last year at the East/West game and I told people he will be the first pick overall last May," said Jeff Cummins, coach of the Acadia Axemen and one of TSNs draft analysts. "He has great feet and moves like an athlete 100 lbs lighter than he is. He can be a plug in and play guy right now for Saskatchewan." TSN Football Insider Dave Naylor said that getting offensive line help was not Saskatchewans biggest need, but taking a local prospect who could potentially play well for the Roughriders for 15 years was a "safe" choice. TSN Football Analyst Duane Forde agreed, saying Heenan will provide great value for the Roughriders. The TSN panel was not unanimous, though, as Chris Schultz said the Riders should have targeted a player who could provide more impact, saying Heenan is a good player but receiver Shamawd Chambers of Wilfrid Laurier would have been his pick. Heenan sent a message to supportive Saskatchewan fans on his Twitter account, saying, "Thank you everyone!! I look forward to joining #ridernation". The B.C. Lions traded with Edmonton to get the second pick and selected defensive tackle Jabar Westerman from Eastern Michigan, a player that TSNs Farhan Lalji said the Lions had rated head and shoulders above all the other defensive lineman in the draft. Forde said scouts were really impressed with Westermans game tape and having a need on the defensive line prompted the Lions to trade up. Edmonton, who has good players on their defensive interior, was comfortable trading down to the fourth spot and picking up extra picks later in the draft. Winnipeg traded two second-round picks to Hamilton to move into the No. 3 slot and selected offensive lineman Tyson Pencer from Washington State. "Tyson is an extremely talented lineman who has experience playing the tackle position," said Bombers GM Joe Mack. "We look forward to him becoming a member of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for many years." Forde, who had Pencer ranked sixth among offensive linemen, considered the pick to be "off the board" but said if he can play tackle it could be a good pick. Schultz loved the selection, saying the 6-foot-7 Pencer looked very fluid at CFL E-Camp despite being 330 pounds and could be a differnece maker on a line that needs help. The Bombers had five picks in all. Hamilton used that newly acquired second-round pick (eighth overall) to take defensive back Courtney Stephen from Northern Illinois. Stephen will be returning to school next season and wont be in the Ticats lineup until at least 2013. After trading down, Edmonton selected Virgina offensive lineman Auston Pasztor fourth overall. Pasztor has a camp invvite from the Minnesota Vikings, but the Eskimos were comfortable taking the chance that he will head north sooner than later. wholesale jerseys. With the fifth pick, the Calgary Stampeders selected defensive end Ameet Pall of Wofford. "Ameet Pall is a consistently hard worker on the football field, in the classroom and in the weight room," said Stampeders head coach and GM John Hufnagel. "He is a good leader both on the field and off the field. He will contribute to our special teams and compete at the defensive line position." Edmonton made its second pick at No. 6 overall, taking wide receiver Shamawd Chambers from Wilfrid Laurier. "Chambers in unique in terms of his combination of size, speed and athletic ability," Forde noted. Chambers has a tryout booked with the Philadelphia Eagles, but Naylor said the Eskimos expect him to be in the CFL this season. Schultz said Chambers was the best athlete available in this draft. B.C. made its second pick of the first round at No. 7 overall, closing the round by taking offensive lineman Kirby Fabien of Calgary. The Lions have some depth on the offensive line, but Fabien should compete for a starting spot. "Were very pleased with our results so far today," said Lions GM Wally Buono. "We believe that we have selected two young men so far that enable us to remain strong on both sides of the line of scrimmage." Stefan Ptaszek, coach of the McMaster Marauders, told TSN Fabien has a great first step and should be able to play tackle in the CFL. The Toronto Argonauts finally got on the board in Round 2, taking lineman Cleyon Laing from Iowa State with the ninth overall selection. "Cleyon is a strong, physical presence inside," said Argonauts GM Jim Barker. "Hes a big man with great athleticism and these types of players dont come along every year." The Montreal Alouettes first pick - 11th overall in the second round - was running back Patrick Lavoie from the Laval Rouge et Or. Heenan was ranked second on the CFL Central Scouting list - behind defensive end Tyrone Crawford of Windsor, Ontario. Crawford was was taken in third round of the NFL Draft last weekend by the Dallas Cowboys. The CFL draft position of other Canadian prospects could also be affected by the NFL. Defensive lineman Christo Bilukidi of Georgia State, an Ottawa native, was chosen in the NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. Austin Pasztor of Virginia, a native of Langton, Ontario, signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted rookie free agent and Wilfrid Laurier wide receiver Shamawd Chambers of Markham, Ontario will be attending mini-camp with the Philadelphia Eagles next week.
