Tom Brady’s new teammate Stephon Gilmore names baby daughter ‘Gisele’

There should be few boobirds in Philadelphia after the draft when it comes to the home team.

The Bears’ drafted started awful with the expensive and questionable trade-up for Trubisky, and with only four more picks to compensate, things didn’t get much better. Shaheen and Jackson fill needs, but more based on upside than solidity. Really, the diminutive dasher Cohen was the standout best pick. It’s atrocious the Bears didn’t take a […]

NFL Draft 2017: Browns go all-in on Jabrill Peppers, and it will pay off

The Browns landed a good football player in Jabrill Peppers. Peppers has to be good; Cleveland is full of Ohio State fans, and now they will have to root for the former Michigan standout and Heisman Trophy finalist.

We selected Moss in the first round at pick No. 21

Let’s start where everybody likes to start with the 34-year-old: Cutler’s negatives. Right or wrong, the impression of Cutler as a player was that he was disinterested, just not that into football. No. 6 was never a fiery leader like Tom Brady. He was passive and subdued; Eli Manning without the Super Bowl rings. TV […]

Conley released a statement calling them “completely false.”

That’s news to Cutler’s agent, Bus Cook, who told ESPN’s Adam Schefter just last week that his client wants to play football and hasn’t mentioned retirement. But Cook only Philadelphia Eagles Cheap Jerseys handles football contracts for Cutler and has evidently been left out of the loop by the quarterback’s pursuit of another job outside […]

Isaiah Thomas credits teammates for lifting him up during an emotional time in his life

Through four playoff games, Thomas is averaging 25.5 points on 45.8 percent shooting from the field and six assists. Boston’s coach couldn’t believe how well his star point guard has played. “(Given) what he’s been through, it’s unfathomable the way he has performed on the court,” Brad Stevens said. “Really incredible.” The Celtics’ first-round series […]

Warriors vs. Blazers, 2017 NBA playoffs: Start time, TV schedule and live stream for Game 3

Kevin Durant is still questionable to play in Game 3 against the Golden State Warriors, but that might be the only thing that could hold this series from being a sweep. Golden State won Game 1 by 12 points — despite two sensational showings from Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum — before crushing the Portland […]

Jonathan Allen selected by Washington at No. 17 in NFL draft

At 6’3 and 285 pounds, Jonathan Allen looks every bit a run-stuffing defensive lineman. With 67 quarterback pressures in 2016, he also has the kind of power to collapse pockets from any position where he lines up. That versatile combination made him one of the safest prospects in the 2017 NFL draft. On Thursday night, […]
