The Oakland Raiders will rely on Maurice Jones-Drew rather than Darren McFadden

The San Francisco Chronicle’s Vic Tafur predicts that Maurice Jones-Drew will supplant Darren McFadden as the Oakland Raiders’ featured running back this season. To complement the fragile McFadden, Oakland signed Jones-Drew to a three-year deal valued at roughly $7.5 million on March 28. Jones-Drew, who performed with a surgically repaired foot and battled a balky hamstring, rushed 234 times for 803 yards and five touchdowns over 15 games as a Jacksonville Jaguar. A three-time All-Pro who captured the 2011 NFL rushing crown, MJD also caught 43 balls for 314 yards. The Jaguars went 4-12 and owned the league’s most inept … Continue reading

Troubled Jacksonville Jaguar Justin Blackmon needs help

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan said this afternoon that he has “no plans” to release wide receiver Justin Blackmon. The 24-year-old Blackmon, who served a four-week ban for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy in April 2013, was arrested for marijuana possession Wednesday night in Edmond, Oklahoma. Blackmon was suspended indefinitely on November 1 for numerous misdeeds and it is unknown when he will be reinstated. Before encountering more issues, Blackmon shined on the gridiron and caught 29 balls for 415 yards and a touchdown in four games last autumn. Sadly, despite brief periods of hope, it’s long been evident that … Continue reading

Tavon Austin ‘didn’t really know what was going on’ as a St. Louis Ram

Tavon Austin said Wednesday that the St. Louis Rams’ playbook “looked like Spanish” last year. Austin, who St. Louis selected eighth overall out of West Virginia, caught 40 balls for 418 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie. A two-time First-Team All-American, Austin also rushed nine times for 151 yards and a score. “I didn’t really know what was going on,” said Austin, 23, who recorded a 7 on his 2013 Wonderlic test. “Everything looked like Spanish and sounded like Spanish to me.” Austin, who can complete the 40-yard dash in 4.34 seconds, should be a nightmare to defend. However, … Continue reading

Rather than mentioning Gennady Golovkin, Andre Ward should finally fight

During a recent interview with Boxing Scene, Andre Ward ridiculously asserted that Gennady Golovkin is afraid to throw fists. Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) will defend the WBA and IBO middleweight belts against Australian Daniel Geale on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. In stark contrast to GGG, the 30-year-old Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) has become a glorified spectator who is strictly determined to trash his agreement with Dan Goossen. “It’s a little different situation,” said Golovkin, 32, who took an extended break following the death of his father on February 18. “My story is my story and Andre’s story is … Continue reading

Matt Cassel is the ‘heavy favorite’ to start over Teddy Bridgewater for the Minnesota Vikings

According to USA Today’s Tom Pelissero, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel is the “heavy favorite” to start over rookie Teddy Bridgewater in Week 1. Working in the same role as a Brown in 2013, new Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner wanted Cleveland to acquire the 32-year-old Cassel last season. A criminally underrated signal-caller, Cassel pushes the ball vertically and Turner believes the dismissed Trojan will flourish in his system. Cassel has tossed 93 scores, versus 66 picks, for 15,302 yards since debuting with the New England Patriots in 2005. Still, although the 2010 Pro Bowler is a very solid ballplayer, … Continue reading

Kobe Bryant should only be ‘afraid’ of the Los Angeles Lakers’ upcoming season

Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant admitted Wednesday that he’s “afraid” of life after basketball. “You really have to lean on muses and mentors going forward, just as I did as a kid. It’s about having that next wave of things, which is scary as hell, but it’s fun at the same time,” said Bryant, 35, who signed a two-year contract worth roughly $48.5 million on November 25. Bryant, who suffered a torn left Achilles tendon in April 2013 and a fractured lateral tibial plateau in his left knee eight months later in December, averaged 13.8 points, 6.3 assists and … Continue reading

Roy Jones Jr. is an eroded boxing legend

Claiming to “still got it,” shopworn boxing icon Roy Jones Jr. will throw fists with Courtney Fry on Saturday night at the Kipsala Exhibition Centre in Riga, Latvia. Jones (57-8, 40 KOs) last vacated the ring on December 21 after earning a unanimous decision over Frenchman Zine Eddine Benmakhlouf. Comparatively, the 39-year-old (18-5, 6 KOs) Fry has lost two consecutive bouts since defeating journeyman Matty Clarkson in October 2012. “I know he’ll give it all he got, which is what I want from any opponent,” said Jones, 45, who was planning to run for mayor this autumn in Pensacola, Florida. … Continue reading

Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel will struggle as a sophomore

According to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, Buffalo Bills signal-caller E.J. Manuel needlessly gained muscle and now tips the scales at 247 pounds. The 24-year-old Manuel, who trained with Colin Kaepernick this offseason and participated in all of Buffalo’s organized team activities in the springtime, underwent three knee operations as a rookie. Hence, the 6-foot-5 Manuel will require the support of a brace this autumn and likely lack some mobility. After getting selected 16th overall out of Florida State, Manuel threw 11 touchdowns, against nine interceptions, for 1,972 yards in 10 games. Even with a bummed joint, Manuel added 186 yards and … Continue reading

Charlotte Hornets power forward Cody Zeller should have never left Bloomington

Charlotte Hornets associate head coach Patrick Ewing wants gangly power forward Cody Zeller to expand his offensive repertoire and become a better defender this offseason. The 21-year-old Zeller, who was taken fourth overall out of Indiana, badly disappointed as a rookie. A former Hoosiers center, the 7-foot, 240-pound Zeller only averaged 6.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists over 82 games. “We need for [Zeller] to do it on both ends, not just look to score,” said Ewing, 51, a three-time member of the NBA All-Defensive Second Team. Zeller was exposed when Syracuse battered Indiana in March 2013 and he … Continue reading
