Van Gundy sits down with Jennings, says injured point guard 'on board' after Jackson trade

Jennings was having a career year before injuring his Achilles. Stan Van Gundy has been as unequivocal about his plans for the future as he has been effusive when discussing recently acquired point guard Reggie Jackson. Since the moment the deal became official, Van Gundy has talked about Jackson as a piece for the future who will be running the team for the rest of this season and beyond. Jackson, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, seemingly isn't going anywhere. Which makes you wonder about Brandon Jennings, the man he replaced. Which is why Van Gundy had a face-to-face sit...

Red Sox never made offer to James Shields, Max Scherzer

The Red Sox were apparently never serious suitors for two of the offseason's best free agent pitchers Speaking on the Dennis and Callahan show Thursday morning, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington revealed that, while they engaged in conversations with Max Scherzer and James Shields, the team never made formal offers to either pitcher. As far as Max Scherzer is concerned, it's not terribly surprising that the Red Sox never made an offer. Given that the Nationals eventually handed him a seven-year, $210 million deal, it shouldn't have taken more than a quick conversation for the Sox to...

It's been well over a week since Josh McCown made a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills, but the team is reportedly working on a contract with the veteran quarterback - and could have a deal wrapped up this week. Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News is reporting that the Buffalo Bills and free agent quarterback Josh McCown are working on a contract, and that a deal "could be wrapped up by Friday." The report does not, however, specify whether or not McCown prefers the Bills among the teams he has visited, or if other teams are in on the bidding, too. McCown, 35, made a free agent visit...

Redskins Might Have the Cash to Sign Durant in 2016!!

Finally, the Redskins have a problem that they can literally spend their way out of!!! It would appear that based on spending figures obtained from the NFLPA, the Redskins are clearing cap space to make a run at Kevin Durant in 2016. Before I lead you further down the path of incredulity, let me say that salary cap penalties levied on our beloved team made it very difficult to spend the money that the Collective Bargaining Agreement mandates. I have spent an extra day processing this story before putting it up here, mostly because my initial reaction was, "You have to be f@#king kidding...

Packers to let Randall Cobb test market, focused on signing Bryan Bulaga and Letroy Guion, per report

Green Bay could retain one of its biggest free agents and an important defensive contributor. The Green Bay Packers have plenty of cap space after releasing A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones. That doesn't mean GM Ted Thompson is about to deviate from his frugal, long-term approach to team building, however. According to Jason La Canfora, the Packers believe Randall Cobb's market is "likely to get out of hand" and have focused their efforts on retaining other key free agents. Reports surfaced last week that Cobb and his camp desire a deal worth an average of $9 million per year. While less annually...
