Arguably one of the best teams in the NFL over the past decade or so has been Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots. With three Super Bowl titles and one of the best quarterbacks of all-time behind center in Tom Brady, the Patriots have just dominated the AFC East division and the AFC Conference for that matter, but they have struggled as of late as teams around the league have gotten younger and better over time.

Heat Signs Free Agent Eddie House

Would you turn down your opportunity to play with Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, and LeBron James if you had the chance?  Probably not.  Neither would Eddie House – one of the best free agent shooters still left on the free agent market…or at least he was.

Thursday, House’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, released a statement that House has agreed to rejoin the Miami Heat.  The contract will be for two years, with the second year of the contract being a player option, and worth almost $3 million, which isn’t as rewarding as other offers he had received but the other offers also couldn’t match one of the NBA’s best trio – Bosh, Wade, and James.

Washington Redskins Albert Haynesworth fails first conditioning test

The one team in the NFL that has made more drastic moves than any other team in the league this offseason is the Washington Redskins. Not only were they able to hire one of the best NFL head coaches of all-time in Mike Shanahan, but they were also able to make a deal for six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb which without a doubt is huge improvement for this struggling offense. The Redskins are predicted by many sports betting sites to finish last in the NFC East. Continue Reading…

Kinsler to DL; Rangers Recall Moreland

The Texas Rangers and the Oakland Athletics go head-to-head today in Arlington but the Rangers will be without second baseman Ian Kinsler who landed on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain on Thursday.  The move is retroactive to Wednesday and came just a day after Kinsler sat out Wednesday’s game against the A’s, which the Rangers lost 3-1.

Kinsler is batting a .298 average with 6 homeruns and 38 runs batted in.  He started off the season on the disabled list due to a high ankle sprain, which resulted in Kinsler missing out on the first 22 regular season games this year.  As for Kinsler’s current injury, it hasn’t proven to be series; however, the Rangers want him in proper shape and be ready and able to give 100% for the postseason.   Continue Reading…
