It’ll be Hunker Down D time tonight in Game Three of The Finals in Boston. For all of their 3-point pyrotechnics, both the Warriors and Celtics are all about defense.
Sold, for $4.65 billion! That’s what the Walton-Penner ownership group has agreed to pay for the Broncos. Don’t worry, that’s Walton as in Walmart. They’re good for it.
Just when you thought the Deshaun Watson stench had at least maxed out…
I’m telling you. Watson will not play a down this season.
Oh, and it sure looks like the Texans were enablers in this mess.
Colts All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard underwent back surgery Tuesday and will miss the start of training camp. Details of the procedure have not been disclosed. Both Leonard and Colts coach Frank Reich say the 5th year star should be ready for the start of the regular season. Leonard has earned All-Pro honors in three of his four years, and has compiled spectacular stats, including 11 interceptions, 15 sacks and 17 forced fumbles.
Titans rookie first round draft pick Treylon Burks is battling asthma, a condition that has slowed the former Arkansas receiver’s progress in OTAs and minicamp. Tennessee is counting on Burks to fill the void created when A.J. Brown was traded to the Eagles.
D.K. Metcalf did not attend the first day of the Seahawks’ mandatory minicamp. The athletically gifted receiver wants an extension to his rookie contract. He’ll get one. But in the meantime, his absence could cost him up to $93,000 in fines.
Aaron Rodgers now says he will “definitely” finish his career with the Packers. Aaron Rodgers says lots of stuff…
Raiders QB Derek Carr says he’d be fine if the club decides to sign Colin Kaepernick as a backup. Kaepernick worked out for the Raiders coaching staff a couple of weeks ago, but no decision has been announced. “Announced” is the key word. The club no doubt has decided, one way or the other.
Hey, Cam Newton. You’re starting to sound pretty pathetic. Actually, this process is not just “starting.” Cam says there are not 32 NFL quarterbacks better than he is. Cam is wrong. This is not 2015. That cape doesn’t fit anymore.
Twelve Ks for Verlander in the Astros’ 4-1 win over the Mariners. And Alvarez hit another homer, his 17th.
A 12-game losing streak can get even high-profile managers fired. Adieu to Joe Maddon in Anaheim. We also bid goodbye to any remaining integrity Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson had.
