Tampa is expected to cut Doug Martin and his $5.7 million cap hit this offseason

Finishing just ahead of the Vikings in terms of yards per touch were the Giants, who have already jettisoned veteran Rashad Jennings this offseason. New York went with a platoon approach last fall and struggled, putting the clamps on an otherwise impressive 11-5 season. Lacy could help, but second-year back Paul Perkins is primed to step into a leading role after finishing the 2016 season on a high note. Bringing in a back like Lacy could adversely affect his development. Tampa is expected to cut Doug Martin and his $5.7 million cap hit this offseason, leaving a big hole in the lineup next to Jameis Winston. Martin was impressively ineffective […]

Does a chef with two Michelin stars actually eat hot dogs?

Why not? Generally, people usually think fine-dining chefs eat that kind of food all the time. But hot dogs are great. We try to control how much mustard is on it, how much relish, create those bites that I find are the perfect balance. You taste the bun, the hot dog, the mustard, the relish. The chili dog is also really good. What is your take on the direction stadium food has taken? Gabe Jackson Authentic Jersey I think food culture in America has completely evolved. Everyone expects more from food, and the arenas want people to stay and eat there. But with everything going on outside of them, the […]

Denver entered the game 1-3 ATS as an underdog in the Super Bowl

Authentic Andrew Ference Jersey “Have you seen Scott Hastings walk?” Rivers asks, referring to his longtime Atlanta Hawks teammate. Rather than ask players to fight through injuries, Rivers has given days off to Griffin, Paul and J.J. Redick at various points in the season. After dropping two games heading into a Nov. 29 matchup against the Brooklyn Nets, Rivers gave Griffin a DNP-rest, the first in franchise history before the calendar turned to January. The Clippers lost that game in double overtime, yet Rivers was undeterred. Whatever increases the chances that the team won’t break down again come playoff time. “I hear people griping about guys missing games, and the […]
