In each of his first two seasons as Rutgers football coach, Chris Ash oversaw an open competition for the right to kick field goals. The results were average at best. While he also backed up Harte, Davidovicz averaged 62.2 yards on 46 kickoffs and tallied 14 touchbacks. As a whole, Rutgers’ kickoff-coverage unit was much […]
Again, some of this was inevitable. Some was avoidable. Much of it involved players whose skills and personalities can’t be duplicated, cap hit or on-field production notwithstanding. What’s certain is that the Seahawks we all knew are no more. What’s also certain is that they look more like one-out-of-32 than they have in a long […]
ESPN’s Jenna Laine first reported Curry’s agreement. Curry established himself as a reliable interior rusher in his first full year as a starter in Philadelphia, registering 42 tackles and three sacks. The performance merited the $5 million guaranteed contract trigger he would have received if he remained on the Super Bowl champions’ roster on Sunday. […]
He indicated an agreement with the Patriots on Instagram on Friday afternoon, posting the team’s logo with the caption: Dope.
Clayborn began his career as a first-round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a rookie in 2011 and he posted 7.5 sacks — his previous benchmark. However, he battled injury issues during his four seasons with the Bucs, playing in just one game during the 2014 season and playing just three games during […]
The final moments of the Philadelphia 76ers’ 108-97 win over the Cavaliers on Thursday took an unexpected turn when Cavs guard Jordan Clarkson threw a ball at Sixers forward Dario Saric’s back and was summarily ejected. With Philadelphia up by eight points and having an opportunity to run out the clock with the game already […]
To hear the Utah Jazz tell it, the All-Star break couldn’t have come at a worse time, even if it did seem like it took forever to get there. “The biggest thing for us,” Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell told the Salt Lake Tribune earlier this week, “is we have to get back to the way […]
Revis played during the Chiefs’ loss to the Titans in the wild-card playoff in addition to five regular season games, in which he made 11 tackles.
Listing the NFL’s highest-paid players is an inexact science. Jimmy Garoppolo’s reported contract with the 49ers, for example, makes him the league’s highest-paid player … in terms of average annual salary. Some might argue total guaranteed money at signing is the only number that matters in an NFL contract. For the purpose of this list, […]
To borrow loosely from the late former NFL coach Dennis Green regarding Week 3, some of the things we knew about the NFL were what we thought they were, but a lot of them weren’t what we thought they were. Among those that weren’t included the Bears beating the Steelers, Redskins whipping the Raiders, Bills […]
The Eagles have a chance to put a stranglehold on the NFC East with a home game Monday night against the 3-2 Redskins.
They enter the game with an NFL-best 5-1 record, including 4-0 in the conference and 2-0 in the division. An Eagles win would give them an even more commanding lead over the Redskins, who they’ve already defeated once this season, as well as Dallas and the Giants. In last Sunday’s win over the Falcons, Newton […]
However, during the last month, Williams has averaged 30.2 points, 5.5 assists, 4.1 3-pointers, 2.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals while shooting 46.8 percent from the field on 19.7 shots and 92.1 percent from the line on 8.4 free throw attempts. He is rated second on the ESPN Player Rater for the month, behind only Karl-Anthony […]
