McCourty joins twin brother on Patriots after being traded from Browns

He’s expected to draw a strong market for his services. He’ll now join his brother, who has played for New England his entire career since being drafted in the first round of the 2010 draft.

“This latest action by Russia fits into a pattern of behavior in which Russia disregards the international rules-based order, undermines the sovereignty and security of countries worldwide, and attempts to subvert and discredit Western democratic institutions and processes,” Sanders said in one of the administration’s most comprehensive critiques to date. “The United States is working together with our allies and partners to ensure that this kind of abhorrent attack does not happen again.”

The United States and two major European allies on Thursday called the toxin attack the “first offensive use of a nerve agent” in Europe since World War II.

The joint statement from the leaders of France, Germany, the United States and Britain signaled a further ratcheting of international pressure on Russia that has been mounting since former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, were found comatose on March 4.

Lynch has spent the first four seasons of his career with the 49ers, who picked him in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of South Florida. He missed just two games through his first two years, collecting a combined 12.5 sacks. The 25-year-old has made just three starts while collecting 2.5 sacks over the last two seasons, compared to 16 starts through his first two seasons.

The Bears have been busy since the opening of free agency and Lynch is their third addition to the defensive side of the ball, along with the re-signing of linebacker Sam Acho and cornerback Prince Amukamara. They’ve also added wide receivers Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel, tight end Trey Burton, kicker Cody Parkey and quarterback Chase Daniel.

We watched Mayfield tape with Darrell Bevell, Wilson’s former offensive coordinator in Seattle, to learn how the undersized QBs stack up. Mayfield went into the throwing sessions wanting to prove a handful of things: (1) That he could throw from under center after taking three- and five-step drops; (2) That he could throw the deep balls and out-breaking routes more accurately than he did at the combine; and (3) That he could do it all while winded.ravens_070
