SANTA CLARA, Calif. Nike Air Max 97 Aanbieding . -- The San Francisco 49ers moved on from one veteran wide receiver on Saturday by releasing Jerome Simpson. The 49ers made another move Sunday to fill the void, trading offensive lineman Brandon Thomas to the Detroit Lions for wideout Jeremy Kerley.The teams announced the trade Monday.The 49ers are thin at wide receiver and, after releasing Simpson, have only Torrey Smith on the roster with substantial experience and production among wideouts.With Bruce Ellington (hamstring), DeAndre Smelter (hamstring) and Bryce Treggs (knee) battling injuries, Kerley at worst gives the 49ers some depth and at best gives them a veteran option capable of playing in the slot and helping on special teams.In five NFL seasons with the New York Jets, Kerley has 182 receptions for 2,225 yards and 9 touchdowns.The Lions initially signed Kerley during free agency. He seemed to be headed toward the teams slot receiver job before they signed Anquan Boldin before training camp.Boldin immediately took over the starting role, leaving Kerley to battle TJ Jones, Andre Roberts and undrafted rookies Jay Lee, Quinshad Davis and Jace Billingsley for a roster spot.On Saturday against Baltimore, Kerley did not receive a rep on offense and was replaced as the slot receiver with the No. 2 unit by Billingsley.The 49ers picked Thomas in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft, but he did not appear in a game for the team.ESPN NFL reporter Michael Rothstein contributed to this report. Nike Air Max 97 Nederland .

Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. Nike Air Max 97 Bestellen .

Traditional contenders Brazil, Greece and Turkey drew the other three spots to complete the 24-team field for this summers tournament in Spain, basketball governing body FIBA announced Saturday at its meeting in Barcelona. PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have sent pitcher Shelby Miller to Triple-A Reno, a move that he said he saw coming.Ive been struggling up here for a while, Miller said in the Arizona clubhouse Thursday. Im surprised I stayed up here this long.Miller has been a major disappointment after the Diamondbacks got him in an offseason trade with Atlanta for outfielder Ender Inciarte, 2015 No. 1 overall draft pick Dansby Swanson and top pitching prospect Aaron Blair.We just have to find a way to get him back to pitching the way he can, manager Chip Hale said.The right-hander is 2-9 with a 7.14 ERA. He was on the disabled list with a finger injury and worked in the minors to find his form. After some progress in is return, Miller had another rough night last week in a 13-6 home loss to San Diego. After blanking the Padres for three innings, he gave up five runs in the fourth when Arizona had a 4-0 lead.His stuff was good at times, good enough to win here, Hale said. He just couldnt put it together, so hell go down there, work on it and pitch his way back to the big leagues.Immediately after giving up so much to get Miller, the Diamondbacks penciled him in as the No. 2 starter behind Zack Greinke. But the team stumbled out of the gate and finds itself in last place in the NL West (38-52), 19 games behind first-place San Francisco.I told him were not going to be the team that we envisioned without him being who Shelby Miller can be, Hale said. That was my message.Hale said left-hander Edwin Escobar would be called up from Reno to take Miillers roster spot. Nike Air Max 97 Goedkoop. Escobar will work out of the bullpen, Hale said, and Zack Godley will be recalled from Reno to start Tuesday against Toronto.Miller said he pored over videos of his pitching during the break and said he saw some differences between this year and last.The biggest thing is to get back to maybe a little bit simpler and not so much forcing things and trying to make a perfect pitch, he said. I think thats when mechanics come easier and everything kind of flows and feels free. Hopefully I can get to that point and get back up here.Hale said Millers mechanics seem the same as they were last season.The mental side of it is just really hard to deal with, Hale said. When you dont have success, it festers and it gets worse.Hale called it a disappointing move for us to make as coaches.We feel like were here to make them better, make them better ballplayers and pitchers, he said, and weve dropped the ball with him.Miller said he had no idea how long hed be gone.It could be the rest of the year, it could be a couple of weeks, who knows, he said.Hale said Miller would have to earn his way back, like any other player.Its a performance-based game, Hale said.The Diamondbacks also dont have Greinke, who they signed to a six-year, $206.5 million contract in the offseason. Hes on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique.Arizona is home against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. ' ' '
