Stephen not worth a Hill of beans

Stephen not worth a Hill of beans

A total of 26 players were claimed on waivers Sunday, and not one of them was named Stephen Hill -- a rather stunning downfall for the former New York Jets' starting wide receiver. It wasn't a money issue. Any team that picked up his contract would've been responsible for only $718,394, his 2014 base salary -- non-guaranteed. That Hill cleared waivers is somewhat surprising. The NFL is all about size and speed, and Hill is a size-speed player, sans the production.

Revisiting Gronk's post-injury '13 snaps

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski declared that he is ready to play in the Sept. 7 season opener against the Dolphins, while also adding that a full workload isn't a realistic expectation. “Definitely not [playing] every single snap. But just get out there, get my feet wet, whatever coaches have, whatever we game-plan this week, will be good," he said. With this in mind, here's a look at how the Patriots gradually brought Gronkowski back upon his return to action last year (including penalties): at Jets: 51 of 79 vs.

[VIDEO] Serge Ibaka Flies Over Egypt

Witness Serge Ibaka harness a power that not even pharaohs could dream of having.... Serge Ibaka didn't get to play in the first day of FIBA Basketball World Cup action. He missed Spain's opener against Iran due to a sore hamstring. We don't know how severe the injury was, but his absence may have been purely precautionary, as Spain cruised to victory that night. Anyway, Serge Ibaka finally got some legitimate action yesterday, when Spain faced off against Egypt. Egypt is basically the 16 seed of this tournament, barely qualifying through a miracle run in FIBA's weakest region. So this...

Pregame notes and lineups: Mariners at A's -- Seven players added to the roster, Jesus Montero placed on suspended list

Greetings from scenic and lovely  O.Co Coliseum. (Italics is thew new sarcasm font.) It's September 1 meaning rosters have expanded and anyone on the 40-man roster can be called up to participate in the last month. First bit of news .... Jesus Montero has been placed on the suspended list and won't play baseball the rest of the season. This isn't a big surprise since general manager Jack Zduriencik said as much the other day. But by being on the suspended list, Montero isn't getting paid for the last month. It also creates a spot on the 40-man roster for the Mariners, which is needed for...
