    With enticing free agent Odell Beckham Jr. now signing to NFC West rival the Los Angeles Rams, the Seattle Seahawks need to make moves to combat L.A. When the Los Angeles Rams stole away Odell Beckham Jr. from the league, the hope of an uplifted offense went with him. That’s true for several teams who were reportedly courting the eight-year veteran, including the Seattle Seahawks, whose roster gets real thin after D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Beyond their starting three wideouts, which include Metcalf, Lockett and Freddie Swain, the Seahawks only have one healthy wide receiver on their roster: Penny Hart. Dee Eskridge and John Ursua are on IR, making their wide receiver situation perilous should the team sustain even one more injury. With the trade deadline passing on Nov. 2, all the Seahawks can do is add available players in free agency or upgrade players from their practice squad. Here are three possible moves the Seahawks can make to bolster their offense and rival the Rams.3. Sign Dez BryantAfter an impressive comeback season with the Baltimore Ravens in...
    SAN FRANCISCO — After a 107-win season and the franchise’s first National League West title since 2012, Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi isn’t changing his approach to acquiring potential difference-makers. Zaidi has supplemented the Giants’ core group of players by adding value on the margins of the roster and his quest to do so continued Friday as the club made three waiver claims. The Giants announced they added outfielder Austin Dean from St. Louis, right-handed pitcher Hunter Harvey from Baltimore and left-handed pitcher Joe Palumbo from Texas on waiver claims that add immediate depth to a roster that lost nine players to free agency and the face of the franchise, Buster Posey, to retirement. Zaidi indicated Thursday the Giants intend to have a dialogue with a significant number of their free agents such as Brandon Belt and Kevin Gausman, but in the meantime, the organization has plugged holes on the roster with players who may have an opportunity to win jobs with the team during spring training. The Giants have frequently added players on...
    SAN FRANCISCO — At the not-yet-ripe age of 19, Jonathan Kuminga can already say he’s conquered a former team. A couple days after making his NBA debut, Kuminga was back in blue and gold at Chase Center on Wednesday, only he suited up for the G League Santa Cruz Warriors. With 16 points, Kuminga helped Santa Cruz to a 110-88 exhibition win over the G League Ignite, the Walnut Creek-based club designed to develop young talent before the NBA draft. The two Bay Area developmental league teams hosted a closed-door exhibition at Chase Center before the NBA’s Warriors faced off against the Charlotte Hornets. Golden State coach Steve Kerr was able to observe his young lottery picks in starring roles for a half, before he had to go prepare for that night’s game. “I was really pleased that both guys got minutes and got reps,” Kerr said. “Such a big part of their development is just reps and getting to play.” Kuminga, an inaugural member of the Ignite last season, successfully used the new format as...

    Getty Taco Charlton at Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium After the Pittsburgh Steelers kicked off NFL trade deadline day by sending linebacker Melvin Ingram to the Chiefs, the team continued to roll with additional roster moves. The only way the Steelers would’ve traded away a former Pro Bowl player like Ingram is if there was a sufficient option to replace him. Right now, Pittsburgh sees Taco Charlton as that man. Charlton, signed to the Steelers practice squad on September 21, was added to the 53-man roster on November 2. The defensive end was selected 28th-overall by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2017 NFL draft.

    Sep 19, 2021; Baltimore, Maryland, USA; Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo before the game against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports After being embarrassed by the Titans, it is time for the Chiefs to be looking for how to right the ship next season. The 2021 Kansas City Chiefs are not a good football team. The defense is one of the worst in NFL history, the coaching has been suspect, and the offense has fallen well short of its potential. Even the redeemable parts of the Kansas City Chiefs roster have shown some reasons to be concerned. The playoffs are not unachievable for the Chiefs, especially with three wild card spots, but the window is starting to close for the red and gold. The Chiefs have the talent in place to continue to be Super Bowl contenders, but the areas where they lack talent hold the rest of the team back. The Chiefs’ 2022 offseason should be focused on filling the holes, however, that may require some rather drastic changes.5 moves...
    The Green Bay Packers officially placed star cornerback Jaire Alexander on the injured reserve on Saturday. The Green Bay Packers are preparing what could be an offensive duel with the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon. Not only will they be without their top cornerback for the Week 5 matchup, but at least the next couple of games. On Saturday, the Packers officially announced that they have placed Jaire Alexander on the injured reserve due to a shoulder injury suffered in their Week 4 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. With that, Alexander is scheduled to miss at least three games.

    SAN FRANCISCO — Brandon Belt isn’t returning to the field anytime soon, but one of the sluggers tasked with replacing Belt’s production in the Giants’ lineup is back in action. The Giants activated first baseman and corner outfielder Darin Ruf ahead of Thursday’s series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The club also activated right-hander Johnny Cueto to pitch out of the bullpen, placed left-handed reliever Tony Watson on the 10-day injured list with a moderate left shoulder strain and designated reliever José Quintana for assignment. Left-hander Scott Kazmir is starting for the Giants against the Diamondbacks, but Cueto is expected to be available out of the bullpen and could throw multiple innings against Arizona if needed. Ruf has been one of the Giants’ most consistent offensive players this season and while he earns most of his starts against left-handed pitchers, he’s also been a valuable presence against righties too. Ruf’s first start back from the injured list comes against Arizona southpaw Madison Bumgarner, who is making his first appearance in front of fans at Oracle Park since signing...

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians confirmed the team has been in contact with Sherman and also noted they will explore some other potential signings as well. “I think Jason’s [Licht] reached out, we’ve gotta see, he’s [Sherman] got other things going on, too,” Arians told reporters. “It’s just a matter of, I coach the ones that we got, and let him [Licht] handle the rest of that.

    Getty New York Jets safety Jarrod Wilson jogs onto the field with the Jacksonville Jaguars on October 13, 2019.

Left tackle Mekhi Becton was the big name on the list, both literally and figuratively. The 2020 first-round pick is set to miss four to six weeks with a dislocated knee cap and an MCL sprain.

    Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse Cutting Cam Newton is the latest in a long line of unpopular — but ultimately successful — moves by the Patriots head coach/general manager Bill Belichick. When news broke that Bill Belichick cut quarterback Cam Newton in favor of Mac Jones, the NFL world buzzed with the implications this has for the two quarterbacks and the future of the Patriots franchise. The decision was shocking: Belichick was “raving” about Newton back in March, and the Patriots made it clear they wanted to give him a fair chance at starting after a lackluster 2020 season. However, the discrepancy in performance between Newton and Jones widened into a gulf during the preseason, with the latter demonstrating capability in a more dynamic, pass-oriented offense. If anyone will ignore popular opinion or veteran deference, it’s Bill: it’s what’s made him hated and doubted by analysts until his teams make the playoffs. Over three decades, the infamous Patriots head coach has made a name in unpopular roster decisions since he first had hiring and firing...

    Getty Tampa Bay signed Jonathan Hubbard on Monday to aid offensive line depth.

The recently-signed offensive lineman wore No. 68 at Monday’s practice, which belonged to tackle Chidi Okeke at the time according to Greg Auman of The Athletic. Okeke didn’t practice on Monday, and Auman speculated that the former Tennessee State standout “might be the corresponding move” to get the roster down to 80 players by Tuesday’s deadline.

    OAKLAND — An already short-handed Giants rotation lost another starter to the injured list Sunday as the club placed right-hander Anthony DeSclafani on the 10-day IL with right ankle inflammation. DeSclafani left his start against the Mets on Wednesday after just 1 1/3 innings when he felt pain pushing off the rubber, but the Giants were initially optimistic he’d be able to make his next scheduled start in New York on Tuesday against the Mets.

Yes, you read that correctly. Beamer, in his first year as head coach, told reporters Tuesday that Zeb Noland, one of his offensive graduate assistants, is now suiting up during preseason practice. Noland isn’t without college football experience. He started his career at Iowa State and played in nine games, throwing for 1,255 yards and six touchdowns. He later transferred to North Dakota State, where he was the backup behind NFL first-round pick Trey Lance. And when Lance decided not to play during NDSU’s spring season in order to go pro, Noland became the Bison’s starting quarterback. In seven games, Noland threw for 721 yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions. Coincidentally, Beamer was in attendance for Noland’s best college performance.

Payton said New Orleans also waived rookie running back Stevie Scott, cut linebacker Noah Spence, placed offensive lineman Kyle Murphy on injured reserve and placed defensive back KeiVarae Russell on the club’s COVID-19 reserve list. While the Saints did not disclose Maher’s injury, it became apparent he was hampered in the club’s preseason opener at Baltimore because he did perform any kickoffs. Maher only kicked extra points after New Orleans’ two touchdowns in a 17-14 loss. Nolan Cooney, one of two punters on the Saints’ preseason roster, handled kickoffs against the Ravens.

    Getty Carmelo Anthony is teaming up with LeBron James for the L.A. Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers are barely into free agency, but LeBron James has already heard the criticism about the team’s recent roster moves. The Lakers now have the oldest roster in NBA history, but James took to Twitter to make sure the critics know he heard them loud and clear. “Keep talking about my squad, our [personal] ages, the way they play, we’re past our time in this league, etc etc etc!!” James said before deleting the tweet two times. “Do me one favor PLEASE!!! And I mean PLEASE!!!! Keep that same narrative ENERGY when [it] begins. That’s all I ask. #ThankYou” James deleted the tweet within minutes after venting about the Lakers critics then reposted the message only to delete it for a second time. With the exception of Kendrick Nunn and Malik Monk, the Lakers signed free agents that are all entering the tail-end of their careers. The Lakers clearly had no reservations about signing older players with the goal of surrounding...
    SAN FRANCISCO — Mike Tauchman, the Giants outfielder responsible for a pair of dramatic home run robberies and a go-ahead grand slam this season, has been designated for assignment. The Giants announced the transaction Thursday as part of a flurry of roster moves that included activating shortstop Brandon Crawford, reinstating pitcher Aaron Sanchez from the 60-day injured list and optioning reliever John Brebbia to Triple-A after a rough outing in Wednesday’s 8-0 loss. The decision to cut Tauchman comes three months after the Giants acquired him in a trade that sent reliever Wandy Peralta to the New York Yankees. The Giants had high hopes that Tauchman could play a significant role in the team’s outfield this year, but struggles at the plate and an uncharacteristically high strikeout percentage forced the club to part with him only a day before MLB’s trade deadline. Tauchman made three of the Giants’ top highlight reel plays this season including a leaping catch at the outfield wall at Dodger Stadium to rob Albert Pujols of a potential walk-off home run on May...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – On the first day of training camp, the Miami Dolphins announced that offensive lineman D.J. Fluker, wide receiver DeVante Parker, and linebacker Elandon Roberts were placed on the active but physically unable to perform list. Wide receiver Preston Williams was put on that list Tuesday.

On the upside, the team announced they have signed guard Tyler Marz. Marz has played in six NFL games with one start, all coming with Tennessee during the 2018 season. He has spent time on practice squads for Carolina (2019), Tennessee (2016-18) and the L.A. Chargers (2017) and also spent time on the Chargers’ active roster in 2017.

    Getty Jordan Whitehead had two forced fumbles in 2020. Tampa Bay returns all 22 starters from its Super Bowl-winning team, but one of those key Buccaneers will have to wait to take the field. The Bucs moved safety Jordan Whitehead to the COVID-19 reserve list on Friday amid several more roster moves announced on Saturday before training camp, which begins on Sunday. Greg Auman of The Athletic reported the news about Whitehead on Friday as the safety notably didn’t go to the White House on Tuesday and the Bucs Super Bowl ring ceremony on Thursday. Bucs have placed safety Jordan Whitehead on the COVID-19 reserve list.

    Getty Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy, owner/GM Jerry Jones The Dallas Cowboys have been mentioned as possible fits in the trade market to acquire a star cornerback like Xavien Howard or Stephon Gilmore. For fans hoping for a late blockbuster trade, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones indicated the team feels comfortable about their current cornerback rotation. “No, we made a major commitment to the corner position in the draft,” Jones told reporters. “I know a lot of people felt like maybe we should have come away with a corner with that first pick, but philosophically we felt like the corners that were worthy of that first pick in that area we were in were not there. Obviously, we feel great about Micah [Parsons], but then went ahead to address the corner position as the draft went on. I think the coaches feel good, we feel good about the corners that we picked to go along with the veteran corners we have in Diggs and Brown and J-Lew [Jourdan Lewis]. You know, I think it’s a great group...
    Carolina traded its playoff starting goaltender to Detroit to avoid arbitration. Philadelphia sent a high draft pick to Arizona to take on a pricey defenseman. The New York Rangers gave a back-to-back Stanley Cup champion a contract Tampa Bay never could have afforded. The moves made Thursday when the NHL’s roster freeze for the Seattle expansion draft lifted were all consequences of the salary cap remaining flat at $81.5 million because of pandemic revenue losses. The Hurricanes dealt rookie goalie Alex Nedeljkovic to the Red Wings for the No. 94 pick in the draft this weekend and the rights to pending free agent netminder Jonathan Bernier. Detroit signed Nedeljkovic to a $6 million, two-year contract — just under what the 25-year-old might have been awarded in an arbitration hearing. Nedeljkovic, who had a 2.01 goals-against average and .928 save percentage last season, gives the rebuilding Red Wings the young presence in goal they’ve been looking for. The Hurricanes can turn their attention to re-signing Petr Mrazek or finding help elsewhere. The Flyers can now go free agent shopping when...
    One of the best batteries in baseball is back in action. The Giants activated right-hander Kevin Gausman from the Family Medical Emergency list and reinstated catcher Buster Posey from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday’s series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Gausman was expected to open the second half on the mound for the Giants in St. Louis, but missed the three-game series after his wife Taylor was hospitalized with pregnancy complications. He’ll now take the ball for the first time since the All-Star break and face Dodgers right-hander Tony Gonsolin on Monday. The right-hander was named an All-Star for the first time with one of the best first half performances of any Giants pitcher in franchise history. In 18 starts, Gausman posted a 1.73 ERA with a 0.820 WHIP while striking out 133 batters in 114 2/3 innings. The Giants had hoped Posey would be available to return from the injured list to play against the Cardinals, but a left thumb contusion and bone bruise he suffered on July 4 required a few...
    Giants ace Kevin Gausman was scratched from his scheduled Friday start in St. Louis and placed on the Family Medical Emergency Leave list. The Giants announced the transaction hours before the team is set to open the second half with a three-game series against the Cardinals. Right-hander Logan Webb, who was expected to pitch for Low-A San Jose on Thursday, did not make an appearance in the minors and will instead start in Gausman’s place at Busch Stadium. The club made several other roster moves Friday as the Giants reinstated outfielder Mike Tauchman from the 10-day injured list, optioned infielder Jason Vosler to Triple-A Sacramento, transferred Evan Longoria from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list and selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Jay Jackson. The club did not provide immediate details regarding Gausman’s absence on Friday. The pitcher was in his home state of Colorado this week for All-Star Game festivities at Coors Field as the right-hander was selected to his first All-Star team after posting a 1.73 ERA in 18 starts during the...
    SAN FRANCISCO — Tyler Beede’s long road back from Tommy John surgery has finally led to 24 Willie Mays Plaza. More than 15 months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn UCL in his right arm, the former first round draft pick has been reinstated to the 40-man roster and joined the Giants at Oracle Park on Tuesday. To clear a roster spot for Beede, the Giants designated reliever Jimmie Sherfy for assignment. The club also made another transaction Tuesday as outfielder Jaylin Davis was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain and recalled infielder Jason Vosler from Triple-A Sacramento. Davis injured his hamstring while running out a groundball in Monday’s 5-3 loss to the Cardinals. Beede began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento in May, but like many pitchers returning from Tommy John surgery, the righty has struggled with command and issued 32 walks in 35 1/3 innings over 12 starts. The Vanderbilt product has walked at least three batters in five consecutive rehab outings, but has also averaged more than...
    In the days following the 2020 season, Farhan Zaidi admitted he had a regret. The Giants’ president of baseball operations considered trading for a veteran left-handed hitter at the deadline, but was unable to execute a deal. In the final week of the regular season, the Giants had several chances to secure a spot in an expanded postseason field, but failed to do so. The frustration the Giants’ top executive felt is understandable, but considering the unique circumstances of last year’s season, many teams were reluctant to shake up their roster or part with prospects in exchange for major league contributors. In 2021, the Giants can’t look back and think about what might have been. Gabe Kapler’s club has proven that a hot start was hardly a fluke, that it has the depth to compete with the Dodgers and Padres atop the National League West and that a playoff berth is well within reach. Nearly halfway through the season, the Giants are still the best team in baseball. And while their roster is loaded with...
    Getty The Seahawks made two moves as minicamp begins. The Seattle Seahawks made a pair of roster moves ahead of the start of minicamp. The Seahawks signed former Packers cornerback Will Sunderland after releasing safety LaDarius Wiley to make room for their new addition. Sunderland represents another tall cornerback at 6’2″ and 196 pounds in the mold of what Pete Carroll prefers at the position. The Seahawks moved away from this prototype in the most recent draft by selecting Oklahoma cornerback Tre Brown who is listed at 5’10”. After the draft, Seahawks general manager John Schneider refuted the notion that the team will only explore adding tall corners. “I think you said it perfectly. The landscape is what it is,” Schneider explained, per Seahawks.com. “I’m sure Tre Brown would love to be 6 foot 2, and if he was 6 foot 2 he would be picked in the Top 10, right? You can see him every weekend running all over the place in the Big 12 with all these receivers and all the speed that’s out...

    The Giants’ top catching prospect is healthy again and posting impressive numbers at Triple-A Sacramento, but when the big league club needed to replace injured catcher Curt Casali on Tuesday, the team’s decision-makers opted to recall Chadwick Tromp instead of Joey Bart. Casali was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left wrist strain, which is an injury that manager Gabe Kapler acknowledged has been impacting his performance in the batter’s box. “We planned out what the next 10 days or so will look like to get that wrist fully strong and ready to go,” Kapler said. “I don’t anticipate it being much longer than that. We’re going to get him doing baseball activity here shortly and doing strength training work as well as working through things with Tromp to get him ready to perform.” Casali had surgery to remove his left hamate bone last offseason and dealt with wrist soreness that kept him out of Game 2 of the NLDS in 2020 with the Cincinnati Reds. It’s unclear how long Casali’s wrist has been bothering...
