The New York Jets need an edge rusher. Badly. And Jets general manager Joe Douglas on Wednesday said that the team has been in contact with Clowney's representatives. "We're going to do our due diligence on everybody that's out there, especially at the edge rusher position," Douglas said in a conference call with reporters. "I'm not going to get into the details of the conversations we've ...

If the NBA ever resumes this season, it will be operating in an unprecedented time crunch. That has led to wide-ranging ideas about how it can possibly crown a fair champion, with a single-elimination tournament being floated as a potential solution. Mark Jackson, the former All-Star and current ABC analyst, is entirely against that format. "I'm not with that at all. Not a single-elimination ...

PHILADELPHIA - There was nothing particularly surprising last week when Josh Harris and David Blitzer, the majority owners of the 76ers and New Jersey Devils, brought down a storm of bad publicity on their heads by announcing salary cuts for employees during the coronavirus pandemic. It wasn't surprising that private equity investment bankers would make that kind of decision. It wasn't ...

Major League Baseball is now playing a waiting game. The owners and the MLB Players Association have mapped a plan for the 2020 MLB season, and, most importantly to them, how everyone in their circle is going to make the most money possible.

PHILADELPHIA - Temple center Matt Hennessy expected to meet with a number of NFL teams in preparation for next month's entry draft.

There were a lot of impressive elements to this Heat season, but here's one of the remarkable revelations that crystallized over the past six months: The Heat ended up getting incredible value with their draft assets. Over the past three years, the Heat had two first-round picks late in the lottery and one second-round pick. And yet, of all the players eligible for the 2017, 2018 and 2019 NBA ...

The New York Jets just let one of their most dangerous weapons walk away. Wide receiver Robby Anderson, the team's only deep threat and one of their few experienced wideouts, has agreed to join the Carolina Panthers. It's a two-year, $20 million deal according to ESPN, which first reported the agreement. The Jets are now in a precarious situation as they move forward in general manager Joe ...

The Jaguars have not had a big-play threat at tight end in 10 years when Marcedes Lewis made the Pro Bowl. They expect to get more consistency this upcoming season, though. The Jaguars took a big step toward making it possible Tuesday night when they reached an agreement to sign former Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert to a two-year contract, according to the NFL's Network. Eifert has ...

The Jets replaced Robby Anderson with a reclamation project, agreeing to a one-year, $6 million deal with former first-rounder Breshad Perriman Tuesday hours after Anderson bolted for Carolina. The 6-2, 215-pound Perriman was a bust for 3.5 seasons before coming alive in the final five games for the Buccaneers last year. He lasted just two years with the Ravens, who spent the No. 26 overall ...

Not so. Maybe a baker can't make bread without flour or a trucker can't haul without gas. But somehow, the bookie carries on without sports. How about putting a few bob on the contestants correctly answering two of the three daily doubles on today's episode of "Jeopardy!"? Or just a small wager on Wednesday's low temperature in Vancouver - the over/under is 3 degrees Celsius? Those are real ...

A strong spring had followed a ...

Does Alexander Pope have any poems about summer? Because I don't think hope will be "springing" eternal this year. Thursday was supposed to be baseball's Opening Day. The A's were supposed to be hosting the Twins at the Coliseum. The Giants were supposed to be in Los Angeles, playing the rival Dodgers. It was supposed to be marked with a ceremony, like every other year. Afternoon baseball, ...

It happened for them the same way it happened for everybody else: They first wondered whether the looming threat of the coronavirus would mean they would have to do events without an audience. They were worried mostly about travel at first and making sure crowds were smaller than 250 people, as initial recommendations suggested. The world of eSports was just like everyone else. For weeks, the ...
