Mark Ingram, Saints teammates turned away by London nightclub for being ¡®too urban¡¯

The biggest assets, though, might be up front. As with a lot of units last year, injury forced some shuffling on Rice's offensive line, but the Owls bring back seven hosses with starting experience, including honorable-mention all-conference performers Calvin Anderson (left tackle) and Trey Martin (center) and two-year starting guard Peter Godber. There is meat here, too: the 12 linemen I list on Rice's preview data page have an average size of 6'4, 306. With a stable starting five, this co...

Six free agents who could be overpriced this offseason

No general manager would say, "We prefer to build our team through veteran free agency," but the first few weeks of the free agency period are still some of the most important on the NFL schedule. With a handful of moves -- adding Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in 2014 and Damon Harrison, Janoris Jenkins and Olivier Vernon in 2016 -- the New York Giants transformed themselves from divisional also-rans into playoff contenders. Kelechi Osemele turned a very good Raiders offensive line into the league...

The Dodgers will again feature baseball’s highest payroll

The Dodgers' staff has it all. There is star power in Clayton Kershaw, Rich Hill and Kenley Jansen. There is tremendous upside in Julio Urias. There is a human filibuster in Pedro Baez. And there is depth galore with, by my count, at least 10 quality options to start games. That gives Dave Roberts the ability to manage his starters' innings carefully and keep them primed for October. And all these hurlers will be working in front of an above-average defense. The Dodgers will again feature b...

Ducks’ Antoine Vermette faces 10-game suspension for slashing referee

In the middle of a tight 1-0 game in Minnesota, Anaheim Ducks forward Antoine Vermette took himself out of the game after hitting an official with his stick. That slap earned him a game misconduct penalty for abuse of an official, a NHL rule that doesn’t often get enacted. One of the last times it came into play? When Dennis Wideman blindsided an official last season in Calgary. The NHL’s rules on abuse of officials is long, but the section pertaining to Vermette’s situation is as follows:...

Durant has seen how that movie ends on far too many occasions. He needed a change.

The constant disconnect on the court with the Thunder, particularly on the offensive end, began to wear on Durant mentally as early as their second season together, league sources told ESPN. Throughout his OKC tenure, Durant asked for more ball movement. At times, it looked like the Thunder might have turned the corner, but it was never sustained. Elite Mens Preston Brown Jersey On sheer talent alone, Duran...

Curt Fraser was the Thrashers¡¯ pick in another case of being on the inside track with management

¡°He¡¯s not playing a lot, and when he does play he¡¯s not getting a ton of minutes and he¡¯s way down in the lineup. So any time that comes up, you start to hear talk and conversation. And I think they are being asked. ¡®What are you thinking here? What are you doing there? What¡¯s your future plans?¡¯ I have no doubt teams are calling and asking them that.¡± Fernando Valenzuela Mens Jersey ¡°He¡¯s f...

C.J. McCollum spoils a vintage clutch display by Dirk Nowitzki

As the American Airlines Center crowd wildly celebrated the legend¡¯s vintage moment, C.J. McCollum had a simple thought: 3.9 seconds is plenty of time. Limited Bo Jackson Jersey Dirk Nowitzki, one of the league¡¯s great closers of the past generation, gave the Dallas Mavericks a one-point lead with less than four ticks on the clock by drilling his second go-ahead 3-pointer of the final minute. The Portland Trail Blazers...

Denver became the first double-digit underdog to win the Super Bowl since the Chiefs in Super Bowl IV

As a Patriots fan, this may be the greatest Super Bowl ever and not just because Goodell has to swallow his bile and hand the Lombardi to Tom Brady. I¡¯m no fan of the NFL¡¯s overtime format, but to those complaining that Atlanta¡¯s No. 1-ranked offense never got the chance to answer the Patriots¡¯ opening overtime drive: Yes, it did. John Matuszak Mens Jersey The Patriots finished the game with 31 unanswered point...
