TAMPA, Fla. Brian Orakpo Jersey . -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed first-round pick Doug Martin to a five-year contract. The Boise State running back was the 31st selection in the draft and is expected to share the workload as a rookie with third-year pro LeGarrette Blount. Martin rushed for 3,431 yards and 43 touchdowns while averaging more than five yards per carry. He also had 67 receptions for 715 yards and four TDs. He ran for 1,290 yards and 16 TDs as a senior at Boise State, capping his career with a school-record 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Arizona State in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas. Blount rushed for more than 1,000 yards as a rookie two years ago but has yet to develop into the type of every-down running back that first-year coach Greg Schiano seeks for his offence. Russ Grimm Womens Jersey . Williams made helmet-to-helmet contact with Jimmy Graham when the Saints tight end was defenceless with about three minutes remaining in Sundays game at New Orleans. Mays did the same to Baltimore tight end Ed Dickson in a Monday night game. Robert Griffin III Camo Jersey . Rosario was claimed from the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. In four games for them this season, he gave up six runs in three innings. He has pitched in 10 major league games, all with Miami during the last three seasons. http://www.shopnflredskinsgears.com/nike-ryan-kerrigan-pink-jersey/ . Hiroki Kuroda has been the man for the job. Kuroda pitched a two-hitter and the Yankees got consecutive homers from Nick Swisher and Mark Teixeira in a 3-0 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night. Alfred Morris Black Jersey . "That guy is incredible. I saw this guy when he was in Milwaukee," Sanchez said. "I know what hes got, so its really good being on the same team. Cedric Griffin Jersey . Orton completed 24-of-34 passes for the Bears (3-2), who have won two straight games to take over first place in the NFC North. Rookie Matt Forte had 36 rushing yards on 15 carries and scored on the ground and through the air, while Rashied Davis finished with six receptions for 97 yards.LONDON - Quebec athletes make up just under a quarter Canadas Olympic team, yet they won all of the countrys first four medals at the London 2012 Olympic Games. A pair of bronze in synchronized diving, another bronze in judo and yet another bronze in womens weightlifting came from athletes from that province in the first four days of competition. Parti Quebecois leader Pauline Marois was quick to make political hay out of the development in Quebec City, citing it as another reason the province should be independent. "We could continue to win our medals," she said. "Im sure of that." Politics aside, Quebec can toot its own horn when it comes to Olympic sports. The province financially supports its athletes more than any other province. Montreals sports facilities are approaching world class, thanks to a multimillion-dollar renovation already underway to create a sport institute with the Montreal 1976 venues. The only other two Canadian centres with sport infrastructure of similar quality are Calgary and Vancouver/Whistler, B.C. Whats on offer in those places is geared towards winter sport because of the 1988 and 2010 Winter Games. Toronto will be able to cater more to elite athletes once the 2015 Pan American Games are held there. Quebec athletes stepping up for Canada in the opening days of the Games was also a function of the schedule. Diving and judo competition fell on the opening days. The national diving and judo centres are based in Montreal, drawing athletes from the local population. Canadas geographic imbalance of medals will likely even out over the next couple of days as rowers and trampoline gymnasts from outside Quebec are expected to produce medals. But give Quebec credit as a sport powerhouse when it comes to producing both summer and winter Olympians. Under the Team Quebec program, the government will spend $65 million in 2011-2012 on its athletes and the construction of the sport institute. "The culture in terms of the passion and commitment to high-performance sport in Quebec is quite profound," says Own The Podium head Anne Merklinger. "Quebec, to this point in time, they are a leading province in terms of investing in high-performance sport. They provide direct financial support to coaches and athletes on the national team and no other province does that." Weightlifter Christine Girard, one of Canadas three bronze medallists Tuesday, can vouch for Quebecs superior sport support. She grew up in Rouyn-Noranda, but now lives and trains in White Rocck, B. Rex Grossman Jersey. C. "I know what Im talking about because I have lived in both systems and I can definitely say athletes are better supported and better served in Quebec than elsewhere in Canada," she said. "Personally, my funding was $15,000 less when I decided to move out west with my husband a couple of years ago. The support were getting in Quebec is better, not only financially, but the services we get from professionals are free. We have to pay for all of that in B.C." An aquatics centre of excellence was established at Montreal Olympic Park in 2007, but Quebec was a diving hotbed long before that. As often happens, when an athlete rises to the top of the world, those who train with them often follow. Current Canadian team assistant chef de mission Sylvie Bernier won springboard bronze at Los Angeles 1984, serving as a role model for Annie Pelletier (bronze, Atlanta 1996) and Anne Montminy (silver, bronze, Sydney 2000). They were followed by Emilie Heymans, a St-Lambert diver who earned a medal at each of the last four Olympic Games. Her first was a synchronized silver with Montminy. Now, its Jennifer Abel picking up the torch. The Laval native won synchro springboard bronze with Heymans on Day 2 and is a contender in the individual springboard later this week. Roseline Filion, who won synchro tower bronze with Meaghan Benfeito on Tuesday, says it was Pelletier who inspired her at age nine to start diving. Alex Despatie of Laval, Que., has two Olympic silver medals in mens diving on his resume and looks to add a third here in springboard. When the Institute du Sport is complete at Olympic Park, it will have synchronized swimming, diving, swimming, water polo, judo, gymnastics, fencing and short-track speedskating among its resident sports. With Olympic medallist Nicholas Gill coaching Antoine Valois-Fortier to judo bronze in London, a similar cycle could start in that sport. Filion dives in an environment where all her competitive needs are met. She looks forward to sharing that environment with other athletes from her province. "From the weight room, to the dryland (training) area, we have psychiatrists, nutritionists, fitness coach, massage, physio, we absolutely have everything we need," she said. "Theyre just going to build it more and more to get everybody at Olympic Stadium, so we get to see the short-track speedskating training at the same time as us in the weight room. Were really grateful because we have that much support in Quebec." ' ' '
