Kyle Williams back with Bills after getting advice from close pal Andrew Whitworth

Was there something in the water when Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams and Rams offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth were growing up just 12 miles apart? Nah. Try something else. “We joke around that there’s something about this red dirt of North Central Louisiana,” Williams said with a laugh. “It grows them a little bit differently […]

It’s difficult to imagine Brees and the Saints parting ways, especially with the team again competitive and without his heir on the roster.

Landry, meanwhile, heads to Cleveland following a four-year stint with Miami in which he was targeted 563 times (sixth-most in the NFL) while catching 400 passes (No. 3 in the league). Primarily a short-area asset, Landry’s career 6.3 average depth of target is higher than only Cole Beasley (6.2) and Adam Humphries (6.2) among wide […]

Hold on a second, did the Mets just win the offseason?

Laugh it up, Sandy. It’s a cold day in Port St. Lucie. On paper, that’s a pretty good lineup. There’s lots of power between Frazier (111 career OPS+), Cespedes (125 career OPS+) and Bruce (110 career OPS+). Should Conforto rebound from his shoulder injury (he will return in May, according to reports), he adds more […]

Shohei Ohtani perfect at plate in first spring training game as Angels’ DH

If first impressions are any indication, Shohei Ohtani will indeed be able to contribute to the Angels at the plate as well as on the mound — or better. The two-way superstar from Japan reached base in all three plate appearances Monday in his spring training debut as a hitter. Obviously, I couldn’t directly communicate […]

In addition to Hyder, the Lions also re-signed long snapper Don Muhlbach .

Ian Rapoport reported earlier Saturday Sherman has an affinity for the West Coast, which makes plenty of sense and helps explain such a swift signing. The Southern California native is a Stanford graduate and is familiar with Niners defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, who was Seattle’s defensive quality control coach from 2011-2013, Sherman’s first three seasons […]

Draymond Green, Klay Thompson joke about consequences if not picked by All-Star captain Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry better be careful with his All-Star picks, or else a potential Warriors dynasty could fall apart — OK, not really. The Thunder have rattled off seven wins in a row, and they are right behind the Timberwolves and Spurs in the Western Conference standings. OKC was coming together and showing signs it would […]

Danny Salazar injury opens up rotation spot for Mike Clevinger

Cleveland Indians pitcher Danny Salazar will be sidelined at the start of the regular season because of a shoulder injury, opening a rotation spot for Mike Clevinger. Indians manager Terry Francona confirmed Monday that Salazar is “not going to be ready” for the start of the season as he deals with inflammation in his pitching […]

Jackson has not used one of the major pre-draft workout centers that many of the draft-eligible players have used.

Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen and USC quarterback Sam Darnold have trained together, with several others players, in California. Jackson said he instead has used private training” in his native South Florida and has spent much of his time leading up to the combine working on my accuracy, because I feel like that’s why they’re down […]
