Zach Ertz: Just like old times with Carson Wentz

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz’ return from last year’s torn ACL clicked forward this week as Wentz began taking part in 7-on-7 drills during the team’s practices.

Wentz isn’t getting the lion’s share of the work, but he is getting enough to make one of his favorite targets feel it’s just like old times for the quarterback. Tight end Zach Ertz even thinks that Wentz may be throwing the ball harder than he did in those old times.

McPhee has said that the Wild were one of a handful of teams that he knew he had in a bind. They had to expose defensemen Matt Dumba and Marco Scandella but didn’t want to lose either. So McPhee agreed to draft Haula, a fourth-line restricted free-agent forward, if the Wild surrendered one of three prospects. They settled on 21-year-old power winger Alex Tuch, the 18th overall pick in 2014, with Minnesota getting a 2018 third-round pick. Haula had a career-high 29 goals and 55 points in 76 games. Tuch had 15 goals and 37 points and was a physical menace for Vegas. It was robbery at the time, and it became worse than expected for the Wild, as both players skated meaningful minutes for Vegas in its postseason run.

The rumors were so thinly sourced that ordinarily they wouldn’t even be worth mentioning. But after a pending Julian Edelman suspension showed up on Reddit one day and on ESPN the next, everyone is wondering what the next big Patriots story to get spilled on social media will be.

Furthermore, a Gronkowski trade isn’t totally unthinkable: There have been reports that Gronk isn’t happy in New England, that he and Bill Belichick don’t see eye to eye, and that he wants a new contract. All that adds up to sound like a player that could be traded.

But just because Gronk could be traded, that doesn’t mean he will be. This is one rumor without a lot behind it.

Cain had the second-best season of his career by WAR in 2017, posting 5.3 WAR (he had 7.2 in 2015). He was one of four primary-position center fielders to hit.300 or better in 2017, along with Charlie Blackmon (.331), Mike Trout (.306) and Ender Inciarte (.304). Cain hit.300. — Langs, ESPN Stats & Information

NFL Draft 2017: ECU’s Zay Jones states case as top receiver in his class

The record-setting ECU receiver fielded some punts after running routes and retreated to catch a booming punt down the right sideline from ECU punter Worth Gregory.

As Jones tracked the ball, the kick led him toward some tackling dummies that were lying on the field. Jones tripped over a couple of the pads and crashed into a standup dummy as scouts and trainers ran over to check on him.

Allen should fall in the draft past the top-five picks, but the Saints shouldn’t be picky when it comes to adding to their defense. Allen, Sheldon Rankins and Cameron Jordan are three great defensive linemen to build around.

The Bengals lost their two best offensive linemen, and it’s unclear whether they trust in Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher as their bookend tackles. Robinson could play guard to start before replacing one of the two in 2018.

It’s likely that a quarterback goes before 10, and my money is on Trubisky being the first quarterback taken at this point. The Bills have interest in Trubisky, and if he doesn’t go in the top-three picks, I’ be surprised if the Bills don’t draft him.

Obviously, reigning MVP Kris Bryant and All-Star Anthony Rizzo are the core of the Cubs’ lineup, as both are in their primes and form potentially the best offensive duo in baseball. But Chicago needs to get some return on its investment in Jason Heyward, particularly with the departure of Fowler. Baseball Prospectus’ PECOTA projections predict an uptick for Heyward. The right fiedler is still elite defensively, but the Cubs need him to hit closer to his .257/.336/.410 Baseball Prospectus projection than his .230/.3016/.325 actual line from 2016.
