Jerry Jones wants Dez Bryant with the Cowboys next season

Jerry Jones wants Dez Bryant back with the Cowboys next season, but does he want the receiver back with a $16.5 million cap figure?

The reason we don’t discuss contract is that it is implies there is an issue with the contract, Jones said Saturday, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. That is not fair to imply that there is anything until we sit down and announce we have done something one way or another. It takes two. It takes him and us to do anything with his contract. I’m going to leave it at that. You have asked me as I sit here do you want him on the team next year, and my answer is yes.

The Cowboys owner has made no secret of his affection for Bryant. Bryant has made no secret of his desire to play his entire career in Dallas. But the sides likely will have to find a middle ground to continue their relationship.

The Vikings checked off their two biggest needs in free agency by signing quarterback Kirk Cousins and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson. Fortifying the middle of the offensive line is logical to maximize Cousins’ effectiveness.

Nate Solder left a 6’8, 325-pound-sized hole in the Patriots’ lineup when he decided to sign with the Giants and become the NFL’s highest-paid offensive lineman.

Solder’s exorbitant deal pointed to a pair of issues. First, NFL teams are far more comfortable paying established veterans instead of waiting to draft incoming blockers, many of whom may not be ready to slide into lineups right away. Second, this year’s offensive tackle class appears to be poor overall.

Eric Ebron has signed with the Colts after being released by the Lions on March 14. The tight end’s two-year deal has a maximum value of $15 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Slauson, 32, suffered a torn biceps in a Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos last year, forcing him to the injured reserve list and ending his season.

In his first season with the Chargers in 2016, Slauson solidified the center spot by starting all 16 games and playing 964 snaps there. The Chargers moved him to his more natural position of left guard last year, where he made seven starts and played 402 snaps on offense.

Then came the signing of Jordy Nelson, and after that, the team started to bring in players who can help them next season, and in the future. However, as players began to sign on the dotted line, two very evident truths began to rear their ugly heads.

Make it 600 goals and counting for Alex Ovechkin, and give the Washington Capitals two more points for the tough playoff race in the Eastern Conference.

Ovechkin scored twice in another historic performance and Evgeny Kuznetsov had the overtime winner as the Capitals returned to first place by beating the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Monday night.

The 32-year-old Ovechkin scored during a 5-on-3 power play in the first period and then put back a rebound past Connor Hellebuyck for No. 600 in the second. The Russian winger became the 20th player and fourth-fastest in NHL history to the milestone and is on pace to lead the league in goals for the seventh time with 42 on the season.

Since he signed a two-year deal in December, the reliever has been pushing Jake Arrieta to follow him to Philadelphia. Mission accomplished.

Arrieta and the Phillies agreed Sunday to a $75 million, three-year contract, a deal that could be worth up to $135 million over five seasons.

This is an exciting day for the Phillies organization and our fans, general manager Matt Klentak said on Monday. Jake is among the best pitchers in baseball and his list of accomplishments is exceptional. He is an elite competitor, a tireless worker and a winner, and I am confident that he will be a great addition to our talented young team and the city of Philadelphia.

Best prospect fits: My top-ranked quarterback is Wyoming’s Josh Allen, but that doesn’t mean he’s No. 1 on general manager John Dorsey’s board. There’s still a lot of time for the Browns to continue their evaluations, and Allen’s pro day is March 23. Penn State’s Saquon Barkley is the best back in this class, and he’s the No. 1 prospect on my Big Board. He’s a game-changer who can help out a young quarterback. Alabama’s Minkah Fitzpatrick and Ohio State’s Denzel Ward are the best defensive backs in a deep class. — Kiper

What’s next after moving on from Cousins: Signing Cousins has not been a realistic option for the Bills, who will have about $32 million in cap space in 2018 once their trade of Tyrod Taylor becomes official later this week. They are more likely to find their quarterback of the future in the draft. Signing a short-term starter in free agency is also possible. — Mike Rodak, ESPN Bills reporter

After two years on the Rams’ franchise tag, Johnson finally has the opportunity to hit the market.

He’ll be arguably the best cover corner available, which means a big payday, even if he has never made a Pro Bowl. — Seifert

The Tigers aren’t in position to start trading the prospects they’ve already gathered for their burgeoning rebuild. Even a season of soft contention would likely see Detroit remain in sell mode, though it might make it that much harder to swing a big deal involving Fulmer.

Given his age, production and position, catcher J.T. Realmuto should bring back another welcome jolt for the Marlins’ rebuild if (or when) he is finally traded.

I list Anderson as the prospect, but in reality, it’s exceedingly unlikely that Miami would move a cost-controlled player for a veteran contract. But if Miami is close to the wild card and one pitcher seems like he could make the difference, you never know.

The agreement is worth about $5 million, according to ESPN and multiple reports, and is pending a physical.

The agreement with Walker at that price will raise the Yankees’ projected luxury tax payroll to approximately $182 million, about $15 million below the luxury tax threshold.

The move could signal that highly touted prospect Gleyber Torres, who has been competing for the Yankees’ starting second-base job, will start the season in the minors.

Torres, who recently was rated as baseball’s No. 5 overall prospect by ESPN’s Keith Law, is hitting 3-for-23 this spring. He has been competing with Tyler Wade and Ronald Torreyes for the open spot at second base.

He is among the victims of a historically slow free-agent market and will take a huge cut from the $17.2 million he earned in 2017, when he accepted a qualifying offer from the Mets.

Harden is expected to play tonight though, and he will likely return to his usual lead role. Since Paul needs to also remain fresh for the playoffs, it seems natural to me that he may be rested a bit more than usual in this game, especially with Harden back at the reigns.

The Spurs find themselves in this foreign territory because they’ve been frankly terrible for the past six weeks.

I’m therefore likely to wait as long as possible for the right catcher to fall into my lap at the proper price, and in a shallow enough format, such as our ESPN 10-team standard with one starting catcher, I’ll dabble with the idea of making my catcher my last pick and streaming the position in-season.

The approach here depends on your draft. Entering standard-sized one-catcher leagues, my plan is to wait forever on filling the position, but I’m open to adjusting based on the flow. More specifically, if Perez falls as a result of everyone following the I’m not paying for a catcher mantra, I’ll happily invest. I’ve yet to see any of the top three catchers fall to a point where I’m ready to pounce, so my strategy is simple: Perez at a discount or Mike Zunino late. — Kyle Soppe

Not at any time in any year did we mention, ‘This is where we are in the playoffs’ or ‘This is where we want to be,’ Popovich said pregame. We just don’t do that. … You don’t think they know where we’re at? Do you think they’re idiots? C’mon.

The Spurs are 3-11 since the start of February, giving them fewer wins than every NBA team except for the Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks, Suns and Memphis Grizzlies.

It’s a lot to ask Leonard, who has been limited to nine games this season due to right quadriceps tendinopathy and a recovery timetable that has frustrated the Spurs, to come to the rescue. But a former Finals MVP and two-time Defensive Player of the Year with a pair of top-five MVP finishes is a pretty rare species. And certainly not one even the NBA’s best team would want to see to start the playoffs.

Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said Radulov, who also played three seasons in Nashville for the Predators, has performed well against his old teams. He played against the Canadiens Nov. 21 in Dallas.

Neil Walker reaches one-year agreement with Yankees

The New York Yankees have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran second baseman Neil Walker.

A Silver Slugger winner at second base in 2014, Walker is a career .272 hitter with 130 homers in parts of nine seasons with the Mets, Brewers and Pirates.

He had been working out at the camp for free agents in Bradenton, Florida, organized by the players’ association.

To make room for Walker on the 40-man roster, the Yankees have designated for assignment outfielder Jake Cave.

The Yankees also released infielder Danny Espinosa from his minor league contract.

But he’s played in just nine games all season. So nobody’s expecting imminent rescue by Leonard, even though his elite skill set suggests he probably could save San Antonio’s season.

I saw the reports that say he wants to come back Thursday, Parker said. So it’ll be 14 games left. It is what it is. We’ll try to do our best. I know everybody wants to keep fighting. There’s a lot of character on this team. If Kawhi comes back, hopefully he can help us. We know it’s not going to be easy. He didn’t play for like two months. It’s going to be a tough situation regardless, but we’ll try to do the best we can.

A two-season layoff following an August 2016 knee injury naturally depresses Bridgewater’s value. But in a best-case scenario, a team could acquire a quarterback who — after knocking the rust off — could start for 10 seasons or more. At the very least, Bridgewater will bring supreme professionalism and attitude to any role he receives. — Seifert

Teams don’t step out much for linebackers unless they are also pass-rushers, but Brown can make a big difference relative to what he is likely to be paid. He’s a tackling machine (512 in four seasons) who hasn’t missed a game in the NFL. — Seifert

Veteran running backs are usually bargains on the open market, considering their short shelf life. But whoever signs McKinnon will get a player who fits well into today’s incarnation of NFL running backs. He is equally fluent in the running and passing games, and offers value as a returner as well. — Seifert

If Fulmer is healthy, he could be as attractive a trade target as will exist on the in-season market, with the stuff to be a No. 2 or 3 in a contending rotation and four years of team control remaining. That combination should command a hefty price in another team’s prospects.

76ers rally to beat Hornets 110-99, 13th straight in Philly

Ersan Ilyasova’s return to Philadelphia came in time to key a comeback against the Hornets.

The “Trust the Process!” chants rang out in the final minute and the 76ers — who won just 10 times in 2015-16 — won the type of game that proved why they might make some noise in the playoffs.

Ilyasova scored 11 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter in his first home game since he rejoined the Sixers, Joel Embiid had 23 points and 15 rebounds, and Philadelphia beat Charlotte 110-99 on Friday night.

Hill, also acquired at the trade deadline, scored a season-high 26 points and Cleveland placed six in double figures.

Russell led Brooklyn with 25 points. Caris LeVert scored 18 while DeMarre Carroll had 16. Brooklyn broke an eight-game losing streak Monday by beating Chicago.

James took a strong stance on the NCAA in light of the FBI’s investigation into recruiting in college basketball.

“The NCAA is corrupt, we know that,” he said. “Sorry, it’s going to make headlines, but it’s corrupt.”

Smith, who missed Cleveland’s 108-97 loss to the Philadelphia Sixers on Thursday, is expected to start against the Nuggets. He declined to speak to reporters Friday at practice.

“I had a little discussion with him,” Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said, declining to disclose any further details on Smith.

The Cavs are just 2/3 since the All-Star break. All three losses have come at home, and they failed to score 100 points in any of those contests.

With four new players added and six sent out in trades on Feb. 8, Lue has decided to simplify the offense until everyone is on the same page.

“I feel good about this team,” Lue said. “No doubt about it. We got a lot of young talent. We got a lot of good pieces. We’re just trying to figure it out, put it together. I think we’ve only played seven games right now and those guys are still trying to figure it out.

“Our coaching staff, we’re just trying to stay Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China positive and just try to make it as simple as possible Cheap Kids Jerseys for those guys until we’re able to catch on.”

The Nuggets (34-28) beat the Memphis Grizzlies 108-102 on Friday to start a stretch of 11 of 15 games in March on the road.

Lakers say they won’t rush rookie Josh Hart back after surgery

Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Josh Hart will undergo surgery Friday on a fractured metacarpal bone in his left hand.

The Lakers said there was no timetable for the rookie’s recovery, but head coach Luke Walton did not rule him out for the season. The Lakers have 21 more regular-season games after Thursday night’s game in Miami.

Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy took his starting five to task for their offensive failure at the end of regulation and in overtime.

“We didn’t play very well,” Van Gundy said. “Those are the guys that are supposed to win games for us. We just stand around. Clearly if we had answers, we would have won.”

Fournier’s scoring burst gave Orlando a 110-104 lead going into the final two minutes of overtime. That proved to be plenty of cushion against a Detroit team that went from shooting 52.4 percent in the first three quarters to making just one of their last 17 shots in regulation and overtime.

Kemba Walker made his first eight shots and led Charlotte with 23 points. Dwight Howard had 21 points for the Hornets, who were coming off a victory over Chicago on Tuesday night and couldn’t keep up with the Celtics after halftime.

“That’s a product of how we started the game. We’ve got to do a better job of starting and making sure we don’t allow guys to get in a rhythm early,” Howard said. “We didn’t start the second half the right way. We started it like we did in the first half. They capitalized on it and they didn’t look back.”

Boston led 67-59 at halftime and opened the third quarter on a 12-3 run, followed by an 8-0 spurt a few minutes later as the Hornets continued to wilt.

“What we got was what we deserved. Our defense was Baseball Jerseys For Sale embarrassing,” coach Steve Clifford said. “The things that have made us the Hornets over the years … none of it was there.”

Charlotte didn’t have much luck, either, in the third period. Irving barely beat the shot-clock buzzer with a turnaround jumper that put Boston up 86-67 with 6:29 left Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal in the third, and bounces continued to fall for the Celtics.

Burnett’s 24 points lead Mississippi over Alabama 78-66

It’s no secret that Mississippi’s basketball team is built around a quartet of veteran guards.

The first half of the game featured wide swings in momentum with Ole Miss taking an early 18-9 lead.

Alabama responded with 18 straight points before Ole Miss came right back with 14 in a row. The Rebels ended the first half on a 23-4 run to take a 10-point lead by halftime.

I’m really proud of our guys to take that punch and then finish the half strong, Kennedy said.

Ole Miss’ Burnett led all players with 16 points in the first half, making 6 of 8 shots from the field, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range.

Alabama was led by Donta Hall’s 14 points. Dazon Ingram scored 10.

Burnett’s 24 points gave him 1,020 for his career. He’s scored 825 points during three seasons at Ole Miss and also had 195 points during his freshman season at Miami.

Alabama: It was a tough night for Alabama, which came into Oxford on a roll, but struggled with its shooting touch. Sexton was a little rusty in his return after missing two games, but the Tide will certainly need him during the rest of the season.

Ole Miss: The Rebels are a handful to deal with on their home court and shot nearly 55 percent in the second half to pull away for the win. Ole Miss has some big games over the next week, traveling to Texas before a crucial SEC home game against No. 19 Auburn.

Philadelphia and New England were the best teams in the league all season, and they have backed it up with strong playoff runs. The Eagles and Patriots match up well with each other, offensively and defensively.

NFL senior VP of officiating Al Riveron will return in 2018

Alberto Riveron will return as the NFL’s senior VP of officiating in 2018, according to ESPN.

The 58-year-old was the NFL’s first Hispanic referee spending and started calling games at the highest level in 2004. He was eventually made a referee in 2008.

I am, in my heart of hearts, a better driver today than I was at 35, Johnson said Tuesday at the NASCAR media days at the Charlotte Convention Center. There’s just a lot of pieces of the puzzle to get it right.

That [talent piece] is not it. If you look at the car count I went through [because of crashes], it showed I was taking more chances and [driving] on that ragged edge a lot more.

Or all those crashes could mean that Johnson has lost that edge, that advantage that made him virtually untouchable.

Doleman was picked fourth overall by the Vikings in the 1985 NFL Draft. After eight years in Minnesota, he spent two seasons with the Falcons and three with the 49ers before returning to the Vikings for his final season in 1999. He was elected to the Pro Bowl eight times and was the NFL sacks leader in 1989.

Doleman was elected to the Hall of Fame five years ago and was also inducted to the Vikings’ Ring of Honor.

Kevin Knox got things started with his jumper, PJ Washington created opportunities at the foul line and other Wildcats chipped in as needed to get it done.

Washington had a career-high 22 points, Knox scored 19 with four 3-pointers and Kentucky pulled away late for a 78-65 victory over Mississippi State Tuesday night to end a two-game losing streak.

NFL launches ‘Let’s Listen Together’ campaign focused on social justice

The NFL announced Tuesday they are launching a joint program between players and coaches with a commitment to focusing on social justice.

The Let’s Listen Together campaign will focus on supporting programs and initiatives that reduce barriers to opportunity, with a priority on supporting improvements in education and economic development, community and police relations, and the criminal justice system.

We are pleased to have developed a new initiative that focuses on creating meaningful solutions to improve our communities, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. In developing this plan, we have taken the lead from our players and are honored to join them in this work. Their work has deepened our understanding of the unique platform we have to help advance progress in a profound and unifying way.

Running back Jordan Scarlett, receiver Rick Wells and linebackers James Houston and Ventrell Miller are enrolled in school and rejoining team workouts.

The four entered a pretrial intervention program in late October that could result in the dismissal of felony credit card fraud charges. The players needed to make restitution and comply with probation protocols over a 12-month period to get the charges dropped without any legal findings.

A source told ESPN that the four players will go through workouts, spring practice, summer workouts and fall camp, but there is no promise that they will play in the first game of next season.

A fifth player, defensive lineman Keivonnis Davis, also remains enrolled in school but is recovering from a non-football injury.
