That’s exactly what the Dolphins became three years ago when they gave Suh the largest contract ever for a defensive player.

When the move becomes official Wednesday so the Dolphins can clear $17 million in salary-cap room, I’m waiting for another Twitter post in which Suh says, “So long, suckers.” In hindsight, the comments from Suh’s introductory news conference back then are almost comical unless you’re a Dolphins fan having just endured a 6-10 season with […]

Raiders close to deal with Tahir Whitehead

After making a major splash on the offensive side of the ball, the Raiders are nearing a deal to help shore up their defense with Lions free-agent linebacker Tahir Whitehead, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. The Raiders already made some noise Thursday by signing former Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson to a two-year, $15 […]

Jets keep Morris Claiborne with one-year, $7 million deal

Morris Claiborne is returning to the Jets. The 28-year-old cornerback agreed to re-sign with Gang Green on Thursday night, according to a source. The deal is for one year and $7 million, according to NFL Network. That receiving corps affords Chicago the flexibility to avoid reaching for a pass catcher at No. 8, while bringing […]

Thomas is coming off a season-ending foot injury and turns 30 in June.

He is too expensive for his return in production and will be cut. Stewart averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per carry in 2017, and the 10-year Panther will turn 31 in March. His saving grace might end up being his nose for the end zone (7 more TDs) and more sentimentality from the team. This […]

NFL quarterback market is anybody but Colin Kaepernick again

As NFL free agency officially begins and teams grab every available quarterback off the market, one notable free-agent quarterback keeps going largely unrecognized as “available.” A few observers here and there point out that, along with the likes of Josh McCown and AJ McCarron, teams could also sign ex-49er Colin Kaepernick, who was a free […]

Not sure how “sneaky” this is, since at this point it seems everyone knows the Dolphins are trying to trade their franchise player.

The Giants were loathe to spend money on coverage linebackers under the reign of general manager Jerry Reese, who never adequately replaced Antonio Pierce in the middle of the field after the playoff hero finished his career in 2009. Draft picks like Jonathan Goff and a bevy of free agents — everyone from Jon Beason […]

Yankees’ Giancarlo Stanton excited for change; ‘It sucks not being able to win’

The Marlins are unrecognizable from the team they fielded a year ago, and arguably no player will benefit more than new Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton told USA Today he never put a hard deadline for the Marlins to trade him, but now that he’s in New York he’s excited to hit in a championship-caliber […]

MLB 2018: Four pitchers who could bounce back after disappointing seasons

Every MLB club and fantasy baseball owner is looking for the next reclamation pitching project. Whether it be because of a mechanical tweak, a change in role or a better defense behind them, a new season brings new opportunity for some pitchers to put a disappointing 2017 behind them. Here are four pitchers who are […]

Landry has plenty to offer the Browns , who also agreed to trade deals for Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor and Green Bay Packers cornerback Damarious Randall .

It is expected that the Jets will use their league-leading cap room to make a serious run at free-agent darling Kirk Cousins , who is said to be interested in the Jets , but also in the Minnesota Vikings , Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals . Early whispers suggested that the Jets could offer Cousins […]

Rockets’ Mike D’Antoni named coach of Stephen Curry’s team at All-Star Game

Now that the 2018 NBA All-Star Game teams have been selected by captains Stephen Curry and LeBron James, Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni has been named coach of “Team Stephen.” “Played with great players,” said Marchand, who also had two assists to help Boston win its fourth straight. “It makes it a lot easier.” David […]
