Bills Release RB Fred Jackson

Bills Release RB Fred Jackson

For fantasy football freaks, you know that, while not a huge name, Fred Jackson is a solid performer. He’s been that way forever in fantasy and in real life as well. Granted he’s a 34 year old running back (which is unheard of), but he’s not an every down guy, which is how he has [...]

Joey Dawejko Proving to Be a Slippery Stepping Stone in the Heavyweight Division

Philadelphia heavyweight Joey Dawejko doesn’t exactly look like what most people would expect a boxer to look like, even in the heavyweight division, where physiques can often be flabby.

Verlander Loses No-Hit Bid in Ninth Inning

Justin Verlander has two no-hitters to his credit in his career and flirted with a third this evening vs. the Angels. It’s one thing to lose a no-hitter and it’s another thing entirely to lose one in the ninth inning. Heartbreaking. He had to settle for a complete game shutout. Justin Verlander lost a bid [...]

Mike Vick to Meet with Steelers

Mike Vick to Meet with Steelers

There are quite a few big names from yesteryear still on the free agent market. Michael Vick tops that list. If he finds a team, he definitely won’t be a starter, but he would be a more than serviceable backup at this stage in his career. Might that be the case for him and the [...]

Charlotte Hornets Agree to 4-Year Extension with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Charlotte Hornets Agree to 4-Year Extension with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is worth more than Kemba Walker. Sort of. The Charlotte Hornets took care of their impending restricted free agent point guard ahead of last season, electing to lock him up on a four-year, $48 million extension rather than allowing him to test the semi-open waters. Walker remains one of the most inefficient floor [...]
