The Broncos have made it clear they’re willing to use the fifth pick in the draft on a quarterback, despite signing Case Keenum in free agency.
And they’re going to take a look at one candidate for that spot this week.
For those seeking out easy defensive targets and differentiation when streaming, it helps to reference the league’s defensive rating index (points allowed per 100 possessions) in April. The Clippers, Grizzlies, Warriors, Hornets and Bucks are among the six worst defenses this month.
Speaking of the Grizzlies, MarShon Brooks’ career revival has been fun to watch unfold; he’s earned a two-year deal, thanks to somehow averaging 23.3 PPG in four NBA games this season. Getting shares of Brooks and, well Dillon Brooks, could prove helpful for fantasy managers in need of reinforcements this week.
He’s the second potential buyer to visit, after Canadian steel magnate Alan Kestenbaum was there last week.
The Charlotte Observer reported that Steelers minority partner David Tepper is scheduled to see the place later this week.
The Panthers are hoping to settle on a bidder in the next few weeks, so that person can be vetted by the league and voted on at the next league meeting in May.
49ers sue Smith in an effort to recover more than $300,000 the linebacker owes the team. Under the terms of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, Smith was ordered to repay $1,186,027 of his original $8.9 million signing bonus after he was suspended for the first nine games of the 2014 season for violating the league’s personal conduct policies. According to documents filed in federal court, Smith repaid the team $844,396.82 between August 2014 and March 2016, but the team still hasn’t seen the remaining $341,630.18.
On March 27, 2017, Bernhard was at the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix, site of the NFL owners meeting that included the Raiders’ relocation vote. He was asked by Badain to be on site in case any gambling questions came up.
Bernhard waited around the hotel, expecting a text message. Nothing ever came. There were no questions regarding sports betting from the owners. Either the UNLV report comforted all the fears or maybe gambling just wasn’t as big of a concern as the NFL had made it out to be.
“I wouldn’t say (sports gambling) was an out-sized concern,” said Mark Lipparelli, one of the report’s co-authors and a longtime Nevada gaming official and state senator. “I didn’t get that impression. I think [the Raiders] were responsible, careful and open-minded. To me, they were doing the right thing.”
