Boston needed a win, and they got back on track for a game at least.

We will have no 3-0 leads coming from Friday's games, with both teams who trailed by two games picking up a win. First came Boston, who shifted Gerald Green into the starting five and found their offense once again. It was a panic move, because anything happens in a panic when a top seed goes down two games to none against the No. 8 team. But Green scored eight points, and it reinvigorated the Celtics enough for the win. It's not quite the same situation, but the Thunder also won Game 3 to pr...

The NFL might finally be easing up in its War on Fun

Last night I had a dream. In that dreamland, I watched a wide receiver catch a 38-yard pass and run it all the way into the end zone. As soon as the ref threw his arms up in the air, the player put the ball on the ground and thrusted his hips, once, twice, three, and four times. Fans watching in the seats gave their own joyous gyrations in return. An orgy of fun. Youth Sam Koch Jersey In another dream a cornerback rudely g...

they weren’t in operation for three of those seasons.

New York has had Boomer Esiason, Vinny Testaverde and Brett Favre pass through as all-stars in their twilight years. Heck, Sanchez didn't make the Pro Bowl, but he had a couple of strong playoff runs after the 2009 and 2010 seasons. And here's a reminder that Cleveland had current Carolina backup Derek Anderson go to Honolulu only 10 years ago. Since Ken O'Brien in '85, the Jets have had only 25 starting QBs. Since Bernie Kosar in '85, the Browns have had 37 starting QBs, and they weren't i...

Cowboys’ Randy Gregory reportedly fails 7th drug test

If Randy Gregory had any hope of playing football again, that chance is now certainly blown. The Cowboys' troubled defensive end recently failed a drug test for the seventh time and has prompted genuine concern for his well-being from those close to him, TMZ Sports reported Saturday. Though he was a full-time starter just one season, Charlton was a first-team All-Big Ten selection after collecting 9 1/2 sacks and 13 tackles for loss. At 6-6, 277, Charlton has superior length with 34-inch a...

Rockies, All-Star 3B Nolan Arenado agree to 2-year, $29.5M deal

Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado, a Gold Glove defender and strong presence in the middle of Colorado's young batting order, agreed Friday to a two-year deal worth $29.5 million, The Denver Post reported.

Nolan earned his contract, and the Rockies treated him right, Arenado's agent, Joe Wolfe, said. Arenado batted .285/.331/.520 with 41 homers a...

Chad Kelly has the physical skill, size and toughness required to play in the NFL.

By eliminating what would have been a fascinating drama over when, or if, Kelly would be signed after the draft, Elway also added more than one unique twist. Kelly, as most know, has the bloodlines as Jim Kelly's nephew. The Hall of Fame Bills quarterback took to Instagram two weeks before the draft to vouch for Chad and his character, and Chad showed his appreciation on Twitter. Elway, as observers noted immediately after the pick Saturday, was a draft mate of Kelly in the famous 1983 firs...

J.J. Watt asks Antonio Brown to haze brother T.J. ‘a little extra’

Clady, who has missed 37 games in the last four years, simply is never healthy. He had a chance to jumpstart his career with the Jets last season but played poorly and once again finished the season on IR. Teams are desperate for left tackles, and he may follow the Jake Long career path, playing for $1.5 million or so per year and hoping to put together one last quality season. T.J. Watt may have been the Steelers' top pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, but that likely won't keep him from the usu...
