Reports out of Arizona are that Cardinals second year defensive back Tyrann Mathieu is doing a remarkable job rehabbing from his torn ACL/LCL.
According to Kent Somers of AZ Central, Mathieu is giving a valiant effort to try to get back, but all signs point to him starting Cardinals training camp on the PUP list.
“I think Ty is going to up to the wire,” Arians said, via Kent...
The NFL will do it’s best to ensure that we avoid dreadful primetime games earlier than normal. According to Around The League, games can now be flexed into “Sunday Night Football” as early as Week 5, according to reports.
In the past, “flex scheduling” did not start until Week 11.
The potential flex games between Week 5 and Week 10 come with a stipulation. The NFL can’t...
UFC President Dana White is never done tweaking and the latest example is his addition of Daniel Cormier vs Dan Henderson as the UFC 173 co-Main Event.
This fight was in discussions for a UFC 175 co-main event slot but that was recently occupied by Ronda Rousey. It only makes sense for Cormier to take the fight on shorter notice so he doesn’t have to be an understudy on that...
Ron Harper won championships playing for Phil Jackson and now he sees himself winning rings for him as a coach. The New York Post is reporting that the former NBA guard says he expects to get an interview for the Knicks head job as well.
Harper said he has texted with Jackson a few times since he got the Knicks job.
“I would expect so,” Harper said of interviewing for a coaching...
Any success Phil Jackson has with the New York Knicks is likely to come as the teams highest ranking executive. According to Al Iannazzone of the New York Daily News, Jackson has ruled out moving down to the bench to coach the Knicks.
Phil said he "made up his mind" and he will not coach. Also cited physical reasons.

Josh Freeman signed with the Giants so he could learn how to be the consummate professional under Eli Manning. Freeman believes that a solid year as a backup behind Manning can put him back into position to start for another franchise next season.
According to the Star-Ledger, Freeman still sees himself as a starting-caliber quarterback.
“I still view myself as a starting-caliber...
Matt Harvey bid the social media world adieu after deleting his twitter account Tuesday.
Harvey posted the above photo to mark the 6-month anniversary of his Tommy John surgery, and well it appears the fun police came upside his head and the photo was then taken down…followed by his entire account.
Was the photo PC? Of course not, but I think certain exceptions can be made for...
The Knicks new mantra is all about hope and change. Well Nike is going in the opposite direction by reminding both sneaker & Knicks fans of the last time the team was relevant.
The ‘Knicks’ Nike Air Flightposites were worn in the late 90s by Allan Houston and they’re still just as dope now.
The sneakers will be in stores on May 3rd and will retail for $210.

Athletes and their tattoos have always been an interesting topic. And we’ve definitely seen our fair share of, well questionable decisions athletes have made when getting tatted up.
J.R. Smith famously got the Young Money logo tattooed on his neck, while DeShawn Stevenson was famous for having Abe Lincoln tatted on his neck, and Kenyon Martin got then-girlfriend Trina’s lips...

Roger Mayweather may be the only person more confident in Floyd’s skills than Floyd Jr. himself. When asked yesterday about the possibility of a Floyd vs Manny fight Roger said, “I hope the fight goes on.”
The fact that this fight didn’t occur 3 years ago while both fighters were in their prime is an atrocity. Mayweather is a smarter fighter today but he doesn’t have the...

This College Football season seems to truly be the summer of drug arrests. Particularly weed arrests. The latest one comes from TCU WR Brandon Carter who got popped for weed possession while driving a Lexus:
Fort Worth officers were on routine patrol in the 1600 block of Calhoun Street in downtown Fort Worth about 5:12 p.m. when they ran the license plate of a 2010 Lexus and found...
This of course would be my dream scenario.
Johnny Football as a Dallas Cowboy would make the world explode and I would love every minute of it.

No way to verify if Arenas is a mini-Floyd Mayweather or not, but the Sports Grid caught Gilbert arguing with some fans on Instagram when he dropped this nugget.
Seems a bit off because I don’t believe the Wizards were 10-1 underdogs, but you never know with Agent Zero.
It seems Chane Behanan has had a change of heart. After announcing that he’d be transferring to Colorado State for his senior season, Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog is reporting that Behanan will now enter the NBA Draft.

Right or wrong, a lot of blame falls on the Head Coach when things go south for a team. The Indiana Pacers have been entertaining but the unsteady play, off the court issues, and team fights could have Frank Vogel coaching for his job in the playoffs:
Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that Vogel, despite a 56-win season that secured the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference...
For the last couple of NBA seasons, Joakim Noah, has been the heart of the Derrick Rose-less Chicago Bulls. When he’s playing at, or near his best, he is literally unstoppable…Well almost.
His bouts with plantar fasciitis are well known, but for the first time it’s being reported that Noah’s foot issues may have been caused by sneakers he’d been playing in since 2007....
Kentucky fans are getting some good news today. Alex Poythress will be returning to school for his junior season.
“Playing in the NBA has always been a dream of mine, but I want to make sure that I’m NBA-ready before I make that jump,” Poythress said. “By coming back, I’ll be so much closer to earning my degree in business and it will give me another year to prepare my...
Melo has said on several occasions it is not about the money, it is about winning. It looks like he has told Phil Jackson that as well.
Phil says Carmelo talked to him about taking a pay cut to help the club. Hopes that he "is true to his word."

But, why take a pay cut with the Knicks when he can take a pay cut with another...

A lot of casual boxing fans ask what exactly is the COLD WAR?
There is a lot of background on this, but here is what it means in its simplest form.
Top Rank and Golden Boy won’t do business together, which makes it impossible for the best fights to be made. It is why you can’t get an Adrien Broner vs. Manny Pacquiao fight for example.
After Floyd Mayweather switched from HBO...
Things are going so poorly for Roy Hibbert lately that he was put up for sale on a fake Amazon page at the low, low price of $143,000, which equates to a 90% discount. With savings like that, you’d be crazy not to buy a lightly used, 7-2 NBA center in bizarre decline.
Funny because it’s true.
