Wes Welker to Visit With the Dolphins

Because Wes Welker elevated to NFL prominence with the Patriots, we seem to forget that he has a career before landing in New England. He began his career with the Dolphins (after a very brief stint with San Diego) and was so successful against division-rival New England, that they traded for him in 2007 But [...]

LaGarrette Blount Suspended For Week 1 of 2015 NFL Season

LaGarrette Blount Suspended For Week 1 of 2015 NFL Season

The New England Patriots picking up LaGarrette Blount midway through last season paid off big for them down the stretch. Bill Belichick implements a multi-back system and Blount fit right in. But they’ll have to do without him when the 2015 season rolls around. Blount has been suspended by the NFL for one game for [...]

Unrest in Blues Locker Room? Allen Assumes Starting Role, Elliot Vocal About Benching

Ken Hitchcock is sticking with “the hot hand” down the stretch. Jake Allen gets the nod for Tuesday’s pivotal showdown with the Winnipeg Jets… and will likely be the guy for the remaining games against Chicago and Dallas. This also means (obviously) Brian Elliot has been benched. And he’s not happy about it. No doubt, [...]

Tom Thibodeau Hopeful Derrick Rose Can Return This Week

Derrick Rose recently returned to contact drills in practice and his return could be soon. At least, Tom Thibodeau hopes so. With the playoffs beginning in less than two weeks, having Rose in there to get his timing and wind back would be crucial. But of course, the ball is in Derrick’s court at this [...]

Dikembe Mutombo Headlines List of Hall of Fame Inductees

If he played today, Dikembe Mutombo would probably be regarded as a top 2 or 3 center in the league. But because he played in an era that included David Robinson, Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon, Alonzo Mourning and others, he sometimes becomes an after thought.

Hall of Shame: HHOF Appoints Former Toronto Crack Mayor Rob Ford to Board of Directors

The Hockey Hall of Fame has announced that it has elected Rob Ford (yes, that Rob Ford) to its Board of Directors. I’m not one for sanctimonious browbeating, and Ford has no doubt suffered enough under the suffocating media coverage that enveloped him many months ago. He’s also enduring rehab and abdominal cancer, so I’m [...]

Michael Crabtree Turns Down Offer From Dolphins

Free agency has been a slow go for Michael Crabtree. There hasn’t been much talk about him visiting other suitors aside from the Dolphins several weeks ago. Miami reportedly offered him $3 million per year, but Crabtree turned that down as he’s looking for a bit more than that. If history is any indicator, Crabtree [...]

Yasiel Puig OK After Colliding With Teammate in Spring Training Game

The Dodgers and Angels squared off in one of the final spring training tune-ups last night. On a pop-up to shallow right by Mike Trout, Yasiel Puig and Howie Kendrick collided.
