Rico Gathers' chance to carve out a role in Dallas, where Dak Prescott can improve this season

David Moore, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the team in a recent live chat. Here are some highlights: What kind of role do you see Rico Gathers having with this year's team?Moore: Injuries to tight ends Geoff Swaim and James Hanna open the door for Gathers to get a lot more snaps this offseason and early in training camp.

The Buffalo Bills do a poor job of keeping draft picks on their roster

Almost two thirds of the players they picked from 2011 to 2016 aren’t on the team anymore. The Buffalo Bills released Cyrus Kouandjio yesterday, the culmination of a rough offseason for the young offensive tackle. It’s also the continuation of a bad trend for the Bills, who have been shedding their draft picks from the last few seasons at an alarming rate. Of the 46 players the Bills drafted from 2011 to 2016, only 16 remain on the team after Kouandjio’s release. Their draft pick retention rate over that time of 34.8% is dead last in the NFL, well behind runner-up Indianapolis and...

Cubs 5, Giants 4: Anthony Rizzo’s big day

The Cubs first baseman slugged two homers and the team held on to win. Anthony Rizzo is a noted streak hitter, always has been and likely always will be. He’s now hitting 10-for-27 (.370/.500/.926) over his last eight games with five home runs (and only two strikeouts!). Streak, begun! Hopefully this will continue when the Cubs finally get out of this miserable Chicago cold weather and to warm southern California for the next week. Two of those home runs came against the Giants Wednesday night, helping lead the Cubs to a 5-4 victory. The Cubs needed both of Rizzo’s blasts (it was his...
