Almost every parent has a child with a friend that the parent would prefer the child avoid. For the Falcons, they’d apparently prefer that Julio Jones steer clear of T.O.

But Jones could do a lot worse than spend time with a 44-year-old Hall of Famer who continues to be in excellent shape. A guy who returned prematurely from a broken leg to be the best player on the field in Super Bowl XXXIX. A guy who, despite his flaws (and we all have them), always gave everything he had.

Remember 2005, when he tried to get the Eagles to cut or trade him by being such a disruptive force? He still averaged more than 100 receiving yards in Kenny Stills Womens Jersey each of the seven games he played.

If Jones does indeed holdout, the Falcons will need help at the receiver position. With T.O. recently running a 4.43-second 40-yard dash, maybe they should call Owens.

Kershaw’s average fastball velocity Thursday was at its lowest ever, and it was his worst start by 1.4 mph. Kershaw’s previous low came in a 2012 start when he was pitching through the flu, so if we wipe that off the board. Thursday night was Kershaw’s worst start in terms of fastball velocity by 2.6 mph a gap large enough to span Kershaw’s average fastball velocity from his previous worst non-flu game (91.7 mph) to his 232nd worst game (94.3 mph). Kershaw has pitched in exactly 300 games, so that span accounts for 78 percent of Kershaw’s games pitched.

That stat alone should be enough to set off sirens in the Dodgers’ front office. Kershaw’s velocity declined steadily through 2017, but Thursday’s start was beyond what anyone could have expected. And it wasn’t just back tightness; Kershaw said his back tightened up in the middle of his start, but his pitch velocity was down from the start. The chart below shows his pitch velocity on Devin Hester Jersey all pitches during Thursday’s start.
