The Browns are trying to start an auction for No. 1 pick

New Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey called this a pivotal offseason for the franchise and is open to all possibilities with the team’s top picks in the draft next month.

That includes potentially trading the No. 1 or No. 4 overall picks the Browns currently hold.

It’s been a busy offseason already for San Francisco. The Niners signed Garoppolo to a five-year deal last month before he even hit free agency, signed cornerback Richard Sherman after he was cut by Seattle, re-signed defensive lineman Cassius Marsh and offensive lineman Garry Gilliam and gave an extension to receiver Marquise Goodwin.

Rod Langway Limited Jersey These moves have addressed many of the team’s most glaring needs although San Francisco still could be in the market for another cornerback, a pass rusher, help at linebacker and a big receiving target.

After losing their first nine games last year, the 49ers underwent a remarkable turnaround. They Kevon Looney Youth Jersey went 5-0 after Garoppolo took over as starting quarterback and finished the year with a 6-10 mark and plenty of optimism they hope to carry over into 2018.

He simply hasn’t done much since signing a six-year, $56 million contract in 2016. He caught just 13 passes last year, and the Rams made the move for Sammy Watkins which made him surplus to requirements

The former eighth-overall pick could still draw some interest, but he was never worth the original investment of draft currency or the contract.

Although many are casting doom and gloom on the Pats, I’m not overly concerned. However, the loss of Nate Solder is a bit disconcerting, I believe trader Bill will find an adequate replacement. With that said, what do you think about the Pats making a trade with Cleveland for the rights of Joe Thomas Of course the Pats would have to coax Thomas out of retirement first. Cleveland has been a friendly trade partner and Thomas has made past positive comments about Brady and the Pats.

It would also give Thomas a chance of winning, which he has never experienced. Sounds like a perfect fit for both sides to me. Thanks for all the great coverage of the Pats, whom I’ve been a fan of for 32 years.

Replying to a tweet from Sports Illustrated’s free agency coverage Tuesday, in which the publication posted, The Packers are surrounding Rodgers with Super Bowl-caliber talent, starting with Jimmy Graham, NFL Network’s Rich Eisen denounced the headline, given Graham, 31, has not competed for the ultimate title.

Interesting headline since Graham has never played in a Super Bowl while Jordy Nelson had 9 catches for 140 yards and a TD in one, Eisen tweeted of the Packers’ 31-25 Super Bowl victory over the Steelers in 2011 a message that Rodgers liked on Twitter.

Rodgers later penned a heartfelt tribute to Nelson on Instagram.

Hard to find the right words today to express what 87 means to me. No teammate exemplified what it means to be a packer quite like him, Rodgers wrote. From living in GB full time, his incredible contributions to the city, state, and region, to his consistent, reliable play on the field. Definitely a sad day and the toughest part of this business. There will never be another quite like white lightning.

This is the second time in recent weeks Rodgers has seemingly vented about a friend’s departure from the organization. After Green Bay let go Van Pelt in January, Rodgers later griped about the decision on ESPN Radio.

McKnight’s mother testified Thursday during the sentencing hearing. Jennifer McKnight left the courtroom sobbing after angrily telling Gasser: You didn’t have to do that.

Authentic Kids Joseph Blandisi Jersey Witnesses at the trial said McKnight had been weaving in and out of traffic at high speed before the shooting. Prosecutors acknowledged to the jury that he was, in the words of Assistant District Attorney Seth Shute, driving like a jerk. But they argued that Gasser escalated the conflict, following him down an exit that he would not ordinarily have taken moments before the shooting.

Shute acknowledged that McKnight had a hand on the open, passenger side window of Gasser’s car before he was shot. But he said physical evidence proved Gasser lied during extensive police questioning when he claimed McKnight lunged at him.

McKnight had been a high school football hero at Louisiana’s John Curtis Christian School. He signed with the University of Southern California in 2006. In the NFL, he played three seasons for the New York Jets and one with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Now Fuller will go from a one-year contract to being one of the highest-paid cornerbacks in the NFL.

Teams are allowed to use one tag — either franchise or transition — per offseason that keeps a player from reaching free agency. With both types of tag, a team has the option to match any offer sheet given to a tagged player.

Trumaine Johnson received a five-year, $72.5 million contract from the Jets and Malcolm Butler got a five-year, $61.25-million deal from the Titans. Fuller is two years younger than both players and had the highest 2017 grade of the three on Pro Football Focus.

His new deal puts him right in the same group with Johnson and Butler. He and Johnson are two of just five cornerbacks with contracts that average at least $14 million per year.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the offer sheet from the Packers was the second received by Fuller in free agency but the first that he accepted.

The Packers can desperately use cornerback help after struggling at the position for several seasons. The team’s best cornerback in 2017 was Damarious Randall, who was traded to the Cleveland Browns earlier in March.

Ideally, Rex Burkhead would have been a nice consolation prize, but he’s back in Foxborough. The market still boasts some versatile players, though. The Colts could buy low on a returning-from-injury Darren Sproles or try again with Christine Michael.

Either way, adding a versatile back now and starting to form a deep committee is key, because there are plenty of other roster holes to fill through the draft.

Tthe Jacksonville Jaguars have once again been aggressive on the open market.They splurged in free agency a year ago and it resulted in a playoff run.

This year’s adds include cornerback D.J. Hayden, wide receiver Donte Moncrief, Andrew Norwell and the return of wideout Marqise Lee.

It’s impressive the Jaguars even keep finding cap space to use, honesty, though the next priority should probably be an inside linebacker after Paul Posluszny announced his retirement.

Free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is planning to visit with the Los Angeles Rams, reports Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports, citing the player. Suh has reportedly already met with the New Orleans Saints and Tennessee Titans. The 31-year-old has not discussed money with the Saints or Titans thus far, using the meetings to assess the organizations themselves, reports Schultz.

The key to this rebuild is the front office and coaching staff finding better talent than they have since 2013. The last solid draft Schneider had was in 2012, and there have been far too many misses since then. Sitting out free agency wasn’t ideal, as there’s still enough in Seattle for the team to try to compete this year, but this was the right time to jump start the long-term plan.

Michael Wilhoite Game Jersey Bridgewater was let loose into free agency by the Vikings after spending the entire 2016 sidelined with a torn ACL. He was deemed fully recovered by the middle of the 2017 season, but was only used in one game.

There’s also Carl Lawson who the team still lists as a linebacker even though he’s more of an EDGE guy.

However, with the addition of Shohei Ohtani and the desire to use him in the designated hitter spot, the Angels wanted to free up some space on the roster and get Pujols back to the position. Luis Valbuena can play first as well.

Sanchez, who will turn 34 later this month, was 3-7 with a career-worst 6.41 ERA last season. Since leading the American League with a 2.57 ERA in 2013, when he went 14-8, the righthander’s numbers have diminished significantly. His ERA has increased each year and he was just 7-13 with a 5.87 ERA in 2016.

Sanchez’s issue has been giving up home runs, leading the league with 29 homers allowed in 2015. He is expected to compete with Adalberto Mej锟斤拷a, Fernando Romero, Stephen Gonsalves, Phil Hughes and Trevor May, who underwent Tommy John surgery last March, for a spot in the bottom of Minnesota’s rotation.

Immediately following the ceremony, Texas senator Ted Cruz told ESPN: We are ensuring that those who are impacted by the three horrific storms that happened in 2017 receive the relief they need. I worked very closely with the governor of Puerto Rico to ensure that the relief was there.

Cruz was among a couple hundred spectators that filled the East Room to watch the ceremony, which marked the first time since Trump took office that a World Series champion has made its official trip to the White House.

The Stars will play the second game of a big six-game road trip against the Canadiens (25-32-12) after starting the trip with a 3-1 loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Yu Darvish to make Cubs debut Tuesday against Dodgers

Yu Darvish is finally ready to make his debut.

The ace is set to play his first game in a Cubs uniform Tuesday against his former team, the Dodgers.

“His last workout, on the day he wasn’t feeling well, was outstanding,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Monday, via ESPN. “I know he wants to get out there and give it a run. I’m eager to watch the whole thing.”

I can look back at myself when I first came to the majors and, based on experiences that I had, give advice that would apply to me. But I don’t know if that advice would apply to him. It’s hard to say because he’s a different type of player. He’s not just a hitter, he’s also a pitcher. There are things I learned looking back that I wish I had known, but I don’t know if that sort of advice would apply to him. There are things that even though people tell you about it, you really won’t understand and have a feel for it until you experience it.

Age and injuries can be unforgiving at cornerback — a position that relies heavily on athleticism. But Sherman’s greatest attributes have been his film study, instincts, and size, so he may be a player who is able to overcome a lost step.

But Sherman brings more than just the ability to close down a receiver. Despite being labeled as a selfish distraction for much of his career, Sherman has drawn rave reviews for his role as a leader and great teammate.

Clippers reportedly believe they have shot to land LeBron James

The Clippers are making moves ahead of the NBA’s Feb. 8 trade deadline with an eye on the greatest prize of all: LeBron James.

While the Clippers agreed on Monday to trade Blake Griffin to the Pistons, they may not be done dealing. Multiple reports says the Clippers are also looking to unload DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams .

The moves are part of the Clippers’ long-term strategy to make a run at James, who is expected to become a free agent this summer.

Coming off a 4-3 overtime loss at Pittsburgh on Monday, the Flames improved to 1-3-1 in their past five. With 76 points, Calgary jumped into 10th place, a point ahead of idle St. Louis, and within one of Los Angeles and Colorado.

The Flames won at Buffalo for just the second time in 14 trips (2-8-3 and a tie), and first time in regulation since a 3-1 win on March 15, 1996.

The way Calgary dominated a game it outshot Buffalo 41-26 had coach Glen Gulutzan believing the Flames might be heating up just in time to mount a late-season playoff push.

“You need traction,” he said.

Duncan alleged Banks of conning him into a $1.1 million investment in a now-defunct cosmetics company and $13.5 million into the Banks-led sports merchandising company Gameday, which folded last year.

Adebayo is strictly a facilitator in those situations for now, but the hope is he will eventually be able to make plays for himself when the defense anticipates the pass. He certainly has the potential to do so, as he displayed on this possession against the Mavericks:

Adebayo has showcased the ability to make the right reads on short rolls and out of the post, too, which are two things he struggled to do consistently at Kentucky. It makes him an easy player to integrate into a motion-based offense because he can find open cutters and shooters when the defense collapses.lions_080

Royals sign free agent Jon Jay to 1-year deal

raiders_001-223x223The Kansas City Royals have signed free-agent outfielder Jon Jay to a one-year deal for the 2018 season, it was announced Tuesday.

According to The Associated Press, Jay’s deal is worth $3 million and he can earn an additional $1.5 million if he meets performance incentives. He would get $100,000 bonuses for 250 plate appearances and each additional 25 through 600.

Eric Karabell: I have a rough time targeting the low batting average power hitters, but later in a draft, it would make more sense if I had a strong base in batting average. That said there is a difference between investing in a clear and obvious .240 option — or worse, like Joey Gallo and Chris Davis — and someone at least capable of hitting .270. I think that might be where the differences are in our rankings.

I am also more likely to invest in a hitter who has shown he can sustain power for a full season, like Justin Smoak, Logan Morrison or even Lucas Duda. They have proven it. The question is will they fail to hit their respective weights. There is no correct answer there. Morrison hit .258 in the first half with major power last season. Why are so many people looking solely at his more disappointing second half?

Reggiana has fallen on hard times since it was relegated from top-tier Serie A in 1997. The club no longer owns its stadium and pays rent to Serie A club Sassuolo, whose owner purchased the title to the stadium. This relationship with Sassuolo is a sore subject for Reggiana and its fans, as noted in a larger profile published last year by the New York Times.

“I have a lot of respect for what Sassuolo has accomplished,” Piazza said. “But guess what? Sassuolo is not bringing the New York Times to Reggio Emilia for publicity. I am — we are.”

Piazza noted that one of his previous partners negotiated Reggiana’s agreement with Sassuolo and said the rent is “double” the league average for that type of arrangements.

“We want to pay what is fair,” he said. “We are not looking for charity. We want to pay the league average. We want to pay what’s fair.

“We want them to come back to the table, and we want the mayor to help. That’s the bottom line. If not, the mayor, the city [of Reggio Emilia] needs to find us a place to play.”

Piazza, 49, was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame in 2016.

Marc Gasol led Memphis with 22 points and nine rebounds, Jarell Martin had 16 points, and Dillon Brooks 13.

Harris was 11 of 18 from the field to help the Nuggets shoot 55 percent in the game. Paul Millsap added 15 points as Denver sent the Grizzlies to their 12th straight loss, the longest losing streak in the NBA this season, leaving Memphis with the lowest winning percentage in the league at 29.5 percent (18-43).

“You can’t say enough good things about the way these guys continue to battle in tough circumstances,” Memphis interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. “Results, we come up short at the end, obviously. But, I couldn’t be more proud of the way these guys fought.”

Memphis trailed by 15 early in the fourth, but clicked off a 16-6 run to significantly cut into the Denver lead. Eventually, Memphis would get to within 104-102 with a pair of free throws from Gasol with 1:38 left.

But Harris nailed a 20-foot jumper with just under a minute left as the Nuggets scored the game’s final four points.

For most of the game, Smith stood out against Markkanen in a matchup of 20-year-old rookies. Markkanen entered fourth in rookie scoring (14.8 points per game) and Smith fifth (14.6).

Antetokounmpo, 22, said he was poked in the right eye as he leaped to attempt a tip-in with 10:08 remaining in the contest. He went down and was attended to by a team trainer. He then left the game and did not return.

Antetokounmpo said afterward that the vision in his right eye was blurry.

“When I look straight, it’s cleared up. When I look down, things are moving,” said Antetokounmpo, who also was hit in the left eye in the third quarter. “Hopefully, when I sleep tonight and wake up tomorrow morning it’s [better]. Right now, I’ll be fine.”

Antetokounmpo finished with 11 points, three rebounds and two assists.

“Nah, that’s what Anthony is for,” Holiday said jokingly about his missed free throws. “I was never worried.”

Davis made two free throws to give New Orleans a 119-116 lead.
