SANTA CLARA, Calif. Air Max Outlet Danmark . -- The San Francisco 49ers signed wide receivers Austin Collie and Lavelle Hawkins to one-year deals Friday after both veteran free agents worked out for the team earlier in the day. The 49ers made the moves to help bolster a receiver unit that has been decimated by injuries. San Francisco began training camp last week without top wideout Michael Crabtree -- out for at least half the season after tearing his Achilles tendon in May -- and three other receivers have missed time this week. Collie played the past four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, but appeared in only one game last year due to injury. He had 173 receptions during his first three seasons with the Colts. Hawkins was released by New England on Wednesday after playing five seasons with the Tennessee Titans. Hawkins had 47 receptions for the Titans in 2011 and 71 overall with Tennessee. Mario Manningham, who started 10 games at wide receiver for the 49ers last season, has yet to practice this summer while he continues to rehabilitate a knee injury suffered in a Dec. 23 game. Kyle Williams -- who like Manningham tore knee ligaments last season -- and receivers A.J. Jenkins and Kassim Osgood each have missed practices this week because of apparent hamstring injuries. To make room on their roster for the two newcomers, the 49ers waived rookie centre Sherman Carter and rookie punter Colton Schmidt. Air Max Dk .

With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills head to training camp facing numerous concerns despite Rex Ryans rosy proclamations regarding the state of his team.A rash of bad news -- injuries, suspensions and legal issues -- persistently overshadowed the coachs suggestions that the Bills won the offseason, and were a zillion miles ahead of where they were a year ago after Ryan took over.Last season was no picnic for Ryan, who failed to deliver on a vow to build a bully. Instead, a high-priced and under-performing defense contributed to Buffalos 8-8 finish that extended the NFLs longest active playoff drought to 16 seasons.This year is already off to a tumultuous start.The troubling headlines began in February, when running back LeSean McCoy was investigated -- but eventually not charged -- for his alleged role during a nightclub brawl involving off-duty police officers in Philadelphia.More bad news came last week when Karlos Williams, McCoys primary backup, was suspended by the NFL for four games for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. And that was after Williams created a stir in June for being overweight upon reporting for mandatory minicamp.Then there are the injuries.Starting receiver Sammy Watkins had surgery on his left foot in April and is expected to miss the start of camp. Two weeks after drafting Shaq Lawson 19th overall, the Bills had the defensive end undergo surgery to repair a shoulder injury that nagged him at Clemson. Initially pegged as a starter, Lawson will instead miss at least the first month of the season.Even the media policy the Bills introduced in May was widely panned for being far too restrictive.Ryan countered the distractions with upbeat defiance following the teams final practice in June.I thought we had a good offseason last year, but not like this. Its so much different, Ryan said. I will challenge any team. I think weve won the offseason. But we need to win July.A number of things to look out for as the Bills open camp in Pittsford, New York, on July 30:TESTED TAYLOR: Tyrod Taylor is Buffalos unquestioned No. 1 quarterback after winning a three-way competition a year ago and delivering with a promising 8-6 record as a first-time starter. Strong-armed and mobile, Taylor oversaw an offense that led the league in rushing and scored 24 touchdowns of 20 yards or longer.The 26-year-old also showed signs of asserting himself as a leader. Nike Air Max Tilbud. Taylors not even swayed by the potential distraction of having to prove himself while entering the final year of his contract.Very easy for me to stay positive, Taylor said. Im here to work. Thats what I came here to do. Were preparing for the 2016 season and Im looking forward to it.RUNNING OUT OF RBS? The Bills might be suddenly short on running backs with Karlos Williams four-game suspension and with rookie fifth-round pick Jonathan Williams facing potential discipline after being arrested in Arkansas on a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated.The Bills plan to be cautious in how much practice time McCoy gets after he was bothered by a foot injury in June, and after he hurt his hamstring in camp last year. Mike Gillislee, recently re-signed Boom Herron and James Wilder will compete for the primary backup spot to open the season.O-LINE: Four of five offensive line spots are set after the Bills re-signed left guard Richie Incognito and left tackle Cordy Glenn. The only position in question is right tackle with Seantrel Hendersons status uncertain as he recovers from offseason intestinal surgery to relieve the effects of Crohns disease. Jordan Mills, who took over for Henderson last season, and Cyrus Kouandjio will compete for the job.WHOLL CATCH ON? The Bills have holes to fill at receiver after losing Chris Hogan to free agency and following Percy Harvins retirement. Among those in contention are Greg Salas and Leonard Hankerson, two late-season additions last year, as well as free-agent addition Jarrett Boykin. Also in the mix are 2015 seventh-round pick Dez Lewis and Marquise Goodwin, who failed to make the U.S. Olympic team as a long jumper.TWINBILL RYANS: Ryan addressed concerns about his defense by hiring twin brother Rob Ryan as assistant head coach. Though Dennis Thurman retains the defensive coordinator title, Rob will hold an unspecified role involving the defense.Rex Ryan also shuffled other staff positions by hiring John Blake (defensive line) and adding former star safety Ed Reed (assistant defensive backs). Kathryn Smith takes over as special teams quality control assistant in becoming the NFLs first full-time female coach.---AP NFL website: and ' ' '
