James Harrison wants to play, hopes to sign somewhere after draft

The oldest defensive player in the NFL isn’t ready to hang up the cleats yet. James Harrison, the outside linebacker who ended last season with the Patriots, is planning to keep playing and looking to sign with a team that needs a player like him after the draft, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. Stanton […]

Donte Jackson runs fast at Pro Day but doesn’t get under 4.3

LSU cornerback Donte Jackson wanted to run lower than 4.27 at the Scouting Combine and thought he might have a chance to challenge John Ross‘ record 4.22. Jackson was fast but not that fast. So instead of standing on his 4.32 from the combine, Jackson ran again for scouts at LSU’s Pro Day on Wednesday. […]

Baseball’s got talent, but how much, at which positions and how far into the future?

One bit of conventional wisdom in baseball is that talent tends to be evenly distributed among the different positions. This is more myth than rule because shortstops and first basemen aren’t born; the people running baseball teams choose whom to play and where. David Ortiz probably would have been a terrible shortstop, but there was […]

Marquette King eyes punting for the Broncos

The Raiders cut him abruptly, and the Broncos could be giving him a landing spot. Punter Marquette King has spoken to the Broncos about a possible alliance with the obvious goal (at least collateral goal) of tormenting the Raiders. “Marquette would love an opportunity to come visit there,’’ King’s agent, Wynn Silberman, told Mike Klis […]

Corey Sanders makes NBA Draft decision | What it means for Steve Pikiell, Rutgers

Corey Sanders is making the jump, and this time for good. Open scholarships : Pikiell and his staff now have three scholarships open for this coming season after previously releasing Matt Bullock and Souf Mensah. They were hoping to use one on three-star recruit Tai Strickland, but he committed to Wisconsin several days after his […]

Ravens: RGIII signing doesn’t impact chance of drafting QB

Super Bowl participants like the Eagles and Patriots don’t enjoy that head-start luxury. They actually become victims of their own success, because the focus must remain on the task at hand — winning a championship — rather than looking too far ahead. It’s a curious decision, since he was already replaced at his old job […]

Bill Belichick, Patriots Brass Reportedly Frustrated with Rob Gronkowski

While Rob Gronkowski mulls retirement, the New England Patriots may be getting fed up with the star tight end. ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported on Saturday that Gronkowski is likely to play football if Tom Brady remains with the team. However, that same report includes a tidbit that suggests tension between the five-time Pro Bowler and […]

Lions re-sign Ringo

The Detroit Lions have re-signed defensive tackle Christian Ringo, addressing a need by adding depth on the defensive line. Ringo has five career tackles and has forced one fumble. He played in six games for the Lions last season. He was a reserve in eight games in 2016 with Green Bay. The Packers drafted the […]

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 […]
