Chad Henne will visit Titans

The planned defense of linebacker Vontaze Burfict to an alleged PED violation, as leaked to and explained by Adam Schefter of ESPN, doesn’t hold water. We’ve since tracked down some more details about the apparent effort to avoid the suspension (and to prevent the voiding of all remaining guarantees in Burfict’s deal). While he still has serious problems with his case, there’s at least a little possible merit to his position, even if it was previously not leaked and/or not fully explained by the recipient of the leak.

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that the Cowboys have informed Scandrick he will be released.

The 31-year-old Scandrick is still capable of starting when healthy, but he’s coming off a season in which he missed five games with back and hand injuries. He hasn’t ed all 16 games in a season since 2013.

Now Scandrick will be a free agent, and he’ll hope to convince some team he can stay healthy and get one more contract worthy of a starting cornerback.

The Jets have the largest offer out to free agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link). Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports was the first to report (via Twitter) that New York had expressed interest in Suh.

Gang Green hadn’t been previously mentioned as a suitor for Suh, and his potential destinations were though to be narrowed to the Rams, Saints, and Titans. The Jets have the most cap space of any of the teams involved in the bidding, and while they haven’t yet set up a visit with Suh, they have explained how they would deploy the veteran interior defender.

Fiedorowicz joined the Texans as a 2014 fourth-round pick and turned in his biggest NFL season with 54 catches for 559 yards and four touchdowns in 2016. He missed 11 games because of concussions last season, however, and the team will have to make other plans at the position for the 2018 season.

The transaction report also brings word that the Texans have signed defensive end Angelo Blackson. He had nine tackles in nine games for the Texans last season.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone added some intrigue into Friday’s 5-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox by changing his mind about throwing slugger Aaron Judge into the leadoff spot.

It was fun watching big No. 99 start the Yankees’ first by working the Real Cheap Jerseys count to 2-2 before being rung up on an outside fastball by Red Sox left-hander Sports Cheap Jerseys Brian Johnson.

This was the story of the day.

At 70 and as a paroled felon, O.J. Simpson can’t stop being O.J. Simpson

From the moment he and his lawyer walked into the room at his Nevada prison for his parole hearing, until he walked back for good nearly two hours later after his parole was granted, O.J. Simpson never stopped being O.J. Simpson.

He is 70 years old, he has been embedded in the public consciousness for more than 50 years — as he told the Nevada parole board commissioners himself Thursday, he’s been a big name since he was 19 — and it feels like everybody in America knows every possible thing about him.

In fact, it feels like we know too much, and if one image stuck after an end date for his nine-year prison sentence was set, he is what he is, and what he always has been.

Cabrera, a 10-year veteran, has had an up-and-down 2017 campaign. The 31-year-old got off to a hot start before leveling off. Playing through nagging injuries, Cabrera currently boasts a .257/.340/.405 batting line with nine home runs and 29 RBIs. His range is limited at short, and his bat is a little light for third base, so a team looking for help at second may be the best fit for Cabrera.

Unhappy with his playing time and a move to second base, Cabrera requested a trade at the end of June and it seems like a foregone conclusion he will be dealt.

Who could be interested: Several teams are looking for infield depth. The early Tom Brady Cheap Jerseys favorites are the Mariners and Indians, Cabrera’s original team, but others could be interested. The Sports Cheap Jerseys Red Sox could be an option even after calling up top prospect Rafael Devers to man third base.
