House returning to Green Bay, Elliott signs one year deal

Other than Cook - who visited Seattle and has Minnesota and Oakland on the docket - Green Bay's unsigned unrestricted free agents are running back Christine Michael and long snapper Brett Goode.

He has played in 38 regular-season games with the Packers over the last three seasons, recording 33 tackles (27 solo), four sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, ... Read More

Tatum, Duke swat away Troy

Tatum, Duke swat away Troy

Wesley Person Jr.is pretty much exactly what you would expect the son of former National Basketball Association sniper Wesley Person Sr.to be like. His draft stock has taken a hit, and the 6-foot-5 guard is now a fringe first-rounder at best. Sophomore guard Joel Berry II's athleticism allows the Tar Heels to run in transition, similar to Roy William's previous national title teams. Read More

Sizing John A Golden First For Harrington

The 7-1 shot, who was tipped by City A.M.to prevail, capitalised on errors by the frontrunners on the second to last fence.

Dont'a Hightower not going to be a Lion

Dont'a Hightower not going to be a Lion

Hightower's new contract is for four years and $43.5 million, with $19 million guaranteed, according to multiple reports. The Patriots could probably match, if not raise, whatever the Jets were offering and it's fair to assume Hightower would rather return to the Patriots and try to win another ring than join a rebuilding effort in NY.

Steelers told Dont'a Hightower offer off the table if he leaves

The Jets mostly seem like a leverage play on Hightower's behalf, but La Canfora has been adamant their interest is real. The report also states "several" other teams also are keeping close tabs on Hightower. While Dont'a Hightower is scheduled to meet Mike Tomlin, Kevin Colbert and Keith Butler, the one thing fans are closely watching is whether the Pittsburgh Steelers would offer Dont'a Hightower a contract or Dont'a Hightower would leave without signing one.

Former Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson signs with Raiders

One of his five career return touchdowns was 109 yards. "Trust me I want to", Patterson had written. "You're nine yards deep in the end zone and you have those 10 guys in front of you who are going to block and give you their all".

Koeman confident Barkley will return to England fold

Koeman confident Barkley will return to England fold

Barkley has always been touted as one of the country's finest young talents but his trajectory since making his Everton bow six years ago has not quite met those expectations. "The boy is so strong, so good on the ball". 28' - LUKAKU MISS: Davies' cross is blocked for a corner. In being the first to reach 20 in all competitions in successive seasons since Bob Latchford, he brought echoes of their past on a day when Everton paid tribute to another former Goodison great, the late Alex Young.

Pedro Caixinha cleared by Qatari club to take post as Rangers manager

Pedro Caixinha cleared by Qatari club to take post as Rangers manager

Under Brendan Rodgers, Celtic have been mighty impressive, and the former Liverpool manager, despite their form, is aware that this derby is going to be tough. 'We aim to win every game and if you can't win then you take a point and my only disappointment is that it was a penalty at the end. The 46-year-old now looks set to quickly agree a deal with Rangers but he is unlikely to be in the dugout for Sunday's clash at Celtic Park. Read More

Grayson Allen Throws Tantrum and Gets A Technical

Kennard, Jayson Tatum and Frank Jackson each scored 20 points apiece for Duke, which led by 13 with 8:30 remaining in the second half before a furious Clemson rally trimmed the deficit to just one with 2:51 left. "So that play I'll live with, but you take your best player and put him to the bench on plays that I believe weren't fouls". "He really head fakes well, he passes well and he has a great feel for the game". Read More

Patriots trading with Colts for TE Dwayne Allen

The Colts re-signed tight end Jack Doyle on a three-year deal Tuesday, while the Patriots are set to lose Martellus Bennett to free agency on Thursday. Bennett didn't exactly light up the stat sheet for the Patriots, catching 55 passes for 701 yards with seven touchdowns, but he played through numerous painful injuries and was valuable insurance when Rob Gronkowski went out with a back injury.

Hype For Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg At WWE WrestleMania 33

Owens never looked or carried himself like a real champion. With Jericho expected to depart WWE for the summer to tour with his band Fozzy, Owens presumably wins the title.

The pay-per-view will cost £14.95 for viewers in the United Kingdom and €21.95 for customers in the Republic of Ireland. Read More

Hawks get Ersan Ilyasova, trade Tiago Splitter to Sixers

He also will become a free agent after the season. The 29-year-old Ilyasova isn't fit for the rebuild process, but at 15 points per game on 36 percent 3-point shooting, is a solid floor-stretching pickup for the Hawks. They will return from the All-Star break in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, a half-game behind Toronto. It becomes the second time this season Ilyasova has been traded, as he was acquired by Philadelphia from the Oklahoma City Thunder on November 1. Read More
