Patriots reportedly had interest in trading up to get Baker Mayfield

Patriots reportedly had interest in trading up to get Baker Mayfield

Enamored with Mayfield but at least 20 spots away from realistically being able to draft him, the Patriots' attempts to interview the Heisman Trophy victor were considered pointless, and thus rejected by Mayfield's camp. "They went Mayfield; we were taking Saquon", he said. "So I asked one of the volleyball coaches, 'What's Rosen like?' He said, 'Aaaaa, you should probably ask his girlfriend". Read More

Roberto Firmino signs new five-year contract at Liverpool

Roberto Firmino signs new five-year contract at Liverpool

Since joining Liverpool in the summer transfer window, Mohamed Salah has pretty much become that elusive replacement to Luis Suarez that the club was looking for. However, Firmino also had two goals and two assists to his name on a night that will go down in an already storied history of famous European nights at Anfield, and the important role the Brazilian plays in knitting together a prolific front three, also including Sadio Mane, is becoming harder to ignore.

Mourinho regrets 'little negative episodes' with Wenger

There's always an edge to Arsenal-United clashes despite the fact the pair haven't been fighting for titles as regularly in recent seasons. The dreamy send-off of one more Premier League trophy will be sadly unfulfilled and a severely lacklustre season plagued by disappointing performances sits in the way of the kind of flawless goodbye that Sir Alex Ferguson so festively enjoyed in his retirement.

Shea Patterson ruled eligible for MI in 2018

Shea Patterson ruled eligible for MI in 2018

With this decision behind us, my family and I are fully focused on the upcoming season. Without the waiver, Patterson would've had to sit out a year due to transfer rules. Friday, the NCAA approved that waiver, granting Patterson the immediate eligibility he - and the Wolverines - coveted. It was clearly written by a team of lawyers trying to be as uninteresting and corporate as possible, and it consisted of nothing but NCAA buzzwords. Read More

Ricciardo flying in Baku as Hamilton labours

Ricciardo, who won the last race in China , was just 0.069 seconds clear of Raikkonen as championship leader Sebastian Vettel struggled. "We were quick today", said Ricciardo.

Titans trade up to draft 'Bama backer

Every draft pick will come in and compete, but a late-round pick overtaking an incumbent starter is pretty rare.

Boston to change Yawkey Way back to Jersey Street

The street was originally called Jersey Street before it was renamed to honor Yawkey in 1977, a year after he died. But for me, personally, the street name has always been a consistent reminder that it is our job to ensure the Red Sox are not just multicultural, but stand for as numerous right things in our community as we can-particularly in our African-American community and in the Dominican community that has embraced us so fully.
