Jermaine Gresham goes viral for being nice to stranded traveler

When a football player becomes famous on social media in the offseason, it’s generally not a good thing.

But Cardinals tight end Jermaine Gresham’s an even brighter star than he was previously, for all the right reasons.

The lawsuit, filed in Houston federal court, accuses the franchise of paying the women less than the $7.25 per hour they were promised, not compensating them for making public appearances or performing other tasks related to their jobs and creating a workplace where the women were threatened with being fired for voicing any complaints.

I and my fellow cheerleaders were treated as the lowest of the low, Hannah Turnbow said at a news conference. The Houston Texans were paid thousands of dollars to have us show up at appearances at locations all over Texas with no security, no transportation and where our safety was not guaranteed.

Grant only played 49 offensive snaps in the regular season, but made the most of them by averaging 8.3 yards per carry and 13.7 yards per reception. He also caught three passes for 59 yards in Jacksonville’s playoff loss to New England and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett suggested he’s in line for more action this time around.

I thought Corey — once again, he’s a guy that stepped in [last season] and did a great job there at the end — and he’s just a guy we’ve got to get out there, Hackett said, via First Coast News. There’s all these guys we’re talking about and it’s a long ways away from that first game to see what we’re going to get but I’d love to put him out there because he’s a major change-of-pace back.

T.J. Yeldon is also on hand in Jacksonville so Grant won’t be the only option for a change of pace from Fournette, but his knack for hitting big plays makes it easy to understand why Hackett would be interested to see what happens if the ball’s in his hands more often.

NFL schedule 2018: Chiefs, Falcons lead 6 contenders with toughest schedules

NFL schedule 2018: Chiefs, Falcons lead 6 contenders with toughest schedules More The 2018 NFL schedule is not created equal for all teams. While every NFL fan likes to think his or her favorite team got a raw deal from the league, in some cases, it’s actually true. The quality of opponents from one season to the next is the biggest factor, but when and where games are played can combine to further stack the odds against teams with playoff aspirations.

The 34-year-old Marshall may have taken issue with the omission, or perhaps recognized that he could potentially be a casualty if the Giants were to sign Bryant.

The Giants, who currently have just $4.8 million in cap space, signed Marshall to a two-year, $11 million deal last offseason. Marshall recorded 18 receptions for 154 yards in five games before missing the remainder of the 2017 season with an ankle injury. He has 959 receptions for 12,215 yards and 82 touchdowns in 172 career contests for the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, New York Jets and the Giants. While Bryant is still sorting it all out, Bovada gave the Baltimore Ravens 3-to-1 odds of being the next team to sign the wide receiver.

(All agents participated under the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the questions.)

Oct. 7, 8:20 p.m. Not only is this a battle for bragging rights in the Lone Star State, it involves two of the game’s most exciting, young quarterbacks in Dallas’ Dak Prescott and Houston’s Deshaun Watson, who’s coming back from reconstructive knee surgery. The Cowboys should also enjoy a full season from Ezekiel Elliott, while the Texans will be get J.J. Watt back from another injury-shortened campaign. 

Jaguars vs. Eagles

Oct. 28, 9:30 a.m. Finally, the fans in London can feast on a savory matchup. The Jags are the UK’s unofficial team, and with their trash-talking swagger and 2017 trip to the AFC Championship Game, there has never been a more exciting time to watch them. Some questions linger about whether Jacksonville’s rise was a fluke, but a test against the defending Super Bowl champs at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 28 should serve as a fine measuring stick.

Going back to early March, an NBC Sports report claimed Howard was involved in trade talks for ex- Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

To sit here and say a feature back, yeah, he’s going to be the guy who lines up and gets the ball. But at the same time, we’re crazy if we use [just] one back. That’s not going to happen. We’re going to use multiple backs.

That report further suggested Nagy and his staff have concerns about the drop-prone power back’s inefficiency as a pass catcher.

At the same time, however, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport rejected the notion that Howard was on the trade block:

A Pro Bowler in his first season in Detroit, Lang battled multiple injuries during the year and turns 31 in September. If durability continues to be an issue, the Lions could consider moving on after this season. He carries an $11.7 million cap hit in 2019 with just $2.7 in dead money.

And while the focus is understandably on the interior, with tackles Decker and Wagner each under contract for multiple years, Robinson’s rookie deal expires at the end of the year, leaving room for adding a developmental tackle anywhere after the fourth round. That need might be difficult to address, given the overall dearth of talent in this pool of prospects.

At Michigan State for three seasons, McDowell racked up 7.5 sacks, 24.5 tackles for a loss, an interception, two forced fumbles, and 50 solo tackles. Entering the NFL Draft, McDowell was projected to be a first-round pick and NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein compared him to Lions Pro Bowl pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah. But before his first NFL training camp, McDowell was injured in a vehicular accident. NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo reported at the time that McDowell got hurt riding an ATV, and suffered a concussion and injuries to his face.

He missed the entire 2017 season and according to Rapoport, he still hasn’t been cleared to play. At the time of the crash, McDowell said that his injury is not life or career threatening as some have speculated and that you will see me back on the field in the near future. Hopefully, regardless of where he lands, McDowell can eventually experience a complete recovery. For the Seahawks, who find themselves in the middle of a reset (not a rebuild), McDowell is yet another early miss in the draft.

The Seahawks’ ineffective drafting in recent years is partly to blame for their recent decline.

Even Odell Beckham’s mentor is turning on him

Hall of Fame receiver and Odell Beckham’s mentor Cris Carter said he was disgusted with the Giants star on Monday morning, days after a video surfaced of him in bed with a French model, a brown cigarette and a white powder.

It will be interesting to see which players we can potentially line up first for initial visits, general manager Mike Maccagnan said at the scouting combine two weeks ago. Obviously we’ll be very active on the first day in terms of the higher profile guys. I think the one thing I’ve noticed in the NFL this year or in the past years, I should say, is free agency moves very quickly. If you have guys targeted and you have your range how you value them, we’ll be very active.

We may sign a big-ticket guy. We may sign a small-ticket guy. It will be very interesting to see how it plays out. Everybody is well aware we have quite a bit of cap space to work with. There are quite a few players we’re interested in.

The move saves the Giants $1.025 million against the salary cap but money was not the determining factor here. This was a performance-based decision. Wing was last in the NFL in net-average punting at 36.7 yards this past season. His gross average of 44.1 yards was 24th in the league. He helped contribute to the horrific 0-5 start to the season with terrible short punts in losses to the Eagles and Buccaneers.

New general manager Dave Gettleman has a history of valuing specialists. With the Panthers, he selected Harrison Butker in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

The most recent to go is Rodgers-Cromartie, the veteran cornerback, who will not return to complete the fifth and final year of his contract. The Giants asked him to take a significant cut in pay from the $6.48 million salary he was scheduled to receive in 2018. Rodgers-Cromartie balked at that and Sunday his contract was terminated. Suddenly, the locker room is devoid of one of the team’s most popular players, especially to younger defensive backs who came to view him as a super-cool older brother.

Last year, Facebook streamed 20 MLB games one local TV broadcast each Friday night during the regular season.

The deal is worth between $30 million and $35 million according to Bloomberg, which first reported the news.

Simms believes that New York Giants are in cat bird seat

The NFL Draft runs through Cleveland again this year, and unfortunately, the Browns still deal with the after-effects of draft mistakes of the past.
What that means for the New York Giants is that the Cleveland Browns cannot get cute. The Browns have outsmarted themselves over and over again. To put things in perspective, the Browns have drafted eight quarterbacks since the G-Men acquired Eli Manning.

Right now, Josh Rosen (UCLA) is the most polished signal-caller, while Josh Allen (Wyoming) has the most natural talent. A third quarterback, Sam Darnold (USC), splits the difference between finished product and talent. He would seem to be the wise choice at No. 1.

Former New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms had some pointed thoughts about where that leaves his old team. Simms gave his opinion when he was a guest on Adam Schein’s SiriusXM show on Mad Dog Sports Radio. Per NJ.com:

If you are looking anything into the future, if Josh Allen is sitting there and [Cleveland doesn’t] take him, I would think [the Giants] will get a ransom for Josh Allen. If Cleveland takes Sam Darnold or [Saquon] Barkley, and Josh Allen is sitting there, that will be interesting.

If Giants general manager Dave Gettleman trades the No. 2 pick, that means Barkley gets bypassed. Clearly, that will upset many New York Giants fans, who believe that the Penn State running back is a no-brainerpick.

Look at his film, Mayfield said. He gave up zero sacks last year.

Mayfield laughed off Brown’s 5.86-second 40-yard dash, noting that Brown is never going to run 40 yards in a game. The workout numbers were unimpressive, but Mayfield was very pleased with last year’s sack number of zero.

Bell will make $26.7 million between 2016 and 2017 by virtue of the franchise tag, which contextualizes just how difficult it is for the Pittsburgh Steelers and their star back to find fair value on a long-term deal. If Bell were to sign a deal guaranteeing him $15 million per year, he would make $45 million over three years, nearly $18 million more than what McCoy racked up over the first three years of his extension.

Westbrook’s 20th triple-double leads Thunder past Kings

Russell Westbrook got the help he needed from co-stars Paul George and Carmelo Anthony.

It was a rough shooting night for the season scoring leaders on both teams. Westbrook made just 7 of 19 shots. Zach Randolph scored 10 points on 5-for-18 shooting for the Kings.

Hield, with advice for Oklahoma star Trae Young ahead of the Sooners’ NCAA Tournament opener Thursday against Rhode Island: Trae’s got to be the player that we need to play well. Make plays for teammates, make shots and score the ball efficiently.

After launching his first two KT shoes, just as Thompson rose to All-Star status and the Warriors became a championship team, the two sides tore up his contract early and signed a new decade-long extension that could run through 2026.

Knowing that I could be really big in China — that was really cool to me, he said. The shoe market sometimes is overflooded in the States, and I thought, ‘Well, why not branch out and be global?’

Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored on a power play for the only goal Kuemper needed. Ekman-Larsson is now two shy of 100 career goals.

Kuemper, in his fourth straight start for the injured Antti Ranta since being acquired Feb. 21 from Los Angeles, stopped 27 shots.

It’s nice to get these consecutive starts like this and just kind of get in the rhythm out there, he said. Every start I feel more and more comfortable with the team and how we play. Tonight was just a gutsy effort from everyone.

Kuemper’s previous shutout was Feb. 3 for the Kings against the Coyotes.

Fehr gave the Sharks the lead for good during a long delayed penalty in the first period. With San Jose having the extra attacker, Fehr got in front of the net, where he deflected Brenden Dillon’s point shot past Howard for his first goal in eight games with the Sharks since being acquired from Toronto last month.

Mission accomplished: Tommy Hunter helps Phillies land Jake Arrieta

The option prices would increase to $28 million if he is among the top five in Cy Young Award voting in 2018 or 2019, and to $30 million if he is among the top three in either year.

Arrieta will join Aaron Nola atop the Phillies’ rotation on a team that finished last in the NL East. Jerad Eickhoff and Vince Velasquez are expected to be in the rotation, and Nick Pivetta is the leading candidate for the fifth spot. The team has a slew of young pitchers who could fill in.

Veteran point guard Tony Parker leaned back against a grease board in the postgame locker room and let out an uneasy laugh.

Been winning for a lot of years, he said. Since I’ve been in the league, I’ve made eight conference finals, five NBA Finals. We’ve been winning a lot. But this year, there’s been a lot of injuries. We just have to find a way to try to qualify for the playoffs.

Not an easy proposition for the Spurs, who find themselves now out of the postseason picture and out of the top eight in the Western Conference standings this late in the season for the first time since before they drafted Tim Duncan (1997), with matchups on tap at home Tuesday against the Orlando Magic, followed by a trio of minefields in the New Orleans Pelicans, Minnesota Timberwolves and the Golden State Warriors. It’s expected that by the time the Spurs host the Pelicans on Thursday they’ll have Leonard back in the lineup.

DeSclafani also suffered a strained left oblique before the 2016 season and was sidelined until June. The right-hander finished that season with a 9-5 record with a 3.28 ERA. He missed all of last season with a sprained elbow.

The Reds were counting on DeSclafani, Homer Bailey and left-hander Brandon Finnegan to recover from injuries and anchor a rotation that struggled without them last year. Instead, they’re heading toward Opening Day with questions about two of them.

Finnegan was removed from his appearance on Sunday after only two batters because of a sore forearm. It’s unclear how long he’ll be limited. Finnegan was limited to four starts last season because of back and shoulder injuries.

DeSclafani won’t be allowed to do any baseball activities until the injured muscle is healed, which makes it unlikely that he’ll be ready to start the season.

Super Bowl 52: Are Bob Costas’ anti-football remarks the reason he’s off NBC broadcast?

Bob Costas will not be part of NBC’s coverage of Super Bowl 52, news that has surprised the sports media world since it’s a departure from plans Costas outlined about a year ago.

He continued, The whole thing could collapse like a house of cards if people actually begin connecting the dots.

NBC made no mention of that discussion, however, in a pair of statements issued in response to questions about Costas, one of which was attributed to Costas himself.

Dan and Liam have served as hosts for our NFL pregame/studio shows on Sunday nights and Thursday nights, respectively, throughout the season and will continue on Super Bowl Sunday, an NBC spokesperson said.

Costas’ statement, written solidly along the company line, read, Dan and Liam have done the job hosting NBC’s NFL coverage all season. It wouldn’t be right for me to parachute in and do the Super Bowl.

The Patriots went 13-3 and won the AFC East this year thanks to elite play in all three phases of the game. Even the defense, which struggled early, finished the season fifth in the league in points allowed.

The highlights include a 64-yard Tom Brady touchdown pass to Brandin Cooks. Dion Lewis returned a kickoff 103 yards for a score. As a team, the Pats forced 10 fumbles and recorded 12 interceptions. In the kicking game, Stephen Gostkowski made 37 of his 40 field-goal attempts, including all four from 50-plus yards.

He called me and said, ‘Coach, this isn’t right what they’re about to do, but (they) are gonna let you go,’ Kidd said.

Kidd says he told Antetokounmpo that I had a feeling that was gonna take place.

To which Antetokounmpo replied: What can I do? I’ll call the owners, I’ll call my agent.

Meeting Alex Ovechkin dream come true for UAE women’s prodigy

Meet Fatima Al Ali.

She’s from the United Arab Emirates and is a hockey prodigy at age 26. Her favorite team is the Washington Capitals and Alex Ovechkin is her idol.

On Tuesday night, the phenom met the Russian superstar as part of Hockey Is For Everyone month in the NHL.

Her reaction to meeting Ovechkin is the kind of thing that makes you a sports fan:

The Washington Post reports former Caps great Peter Bondra met Al Ali during on a November trip to Abu Dhabi, where she plays for the national women’s team.

Crosby joined very rare company when NHL commissioner Gary Bettman announced the Penguins captain as the 2017 playoff’s most valuable player. Following the Penguins winning their second consecutive Stanley Cup, Crosby was again awarded the Conn Smythe, making him one of three players ever (Mario Lemieux, Bernie Parent) to win the award in consecutive years.

Canada’s recent dominance atop the hockey world has coincided with Crosby’s reign as the game’s best player. Most recently, he captained Canada to gold at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, the rebooted best-on-best tournament that featured perhaps the most talented pool of players in an international tournament in hockey history.

Crosby scored three goals and added seven assists in six tournament games, including two assists in Canada’s gold medal victory against Team Europe.

Should the Rangers buy, sell, or stay at the MLB trade deadline?

If the Rangers wanted to blow it up, they could blow it up spectacularly. Yu Darvish to the Dodgers for all of the prospects. Cole Hamels and money to the Brewers for most of the prospects. Adrian Beltre to the Red Sox for a plurality of the prospects. They could sail into August with a fortified farm system, and all they would have to give up are their hopes and dreams.

However, this brings us to the Greater Theory of Rebuilding and a comic-sans chart that I made a couple years ago for the White Sox.

The answer to this depends entirely on one thing: How much money are the Tigers sending along with Verlander? The 34-year-old is owed $28 million in each of the next two seasons, plus whatever he’s still owed from the 2017 season. If the Tigers want to chip in after determining that owing, say, two-thirds as much money while getting a prospect back is better than watching Verlander’s trade value potentially fall lower, then hey, there’s your answer. If the Tigers’ response is that they want all of the money taken care of by Milwaukee but in return they’ll reduce their expectations for a prospect return, then that’s probably something that could work, too!

If the Tigers want to play that in-the-middle game they’re so fond of in other areas of team development, and demand that they pay nothing or very little while the Brewers give up a major prospect in exchange for a Verlander who doesn’t look like anything like the Verlander who signed this deal to begin with, then, well, we’re all wasting our time a little bit here, aren’t we?
