That's right, the Hardy Boyz. After capturing the gold, Jeff said: "WrestleMania 33, Orlando, Florida, we are back home!" It was going to be a Fatal 4-Way Match.

Derrick Rose out for season with torn meniscus Derrick Rose out for season with torn meniscus
- April 03, 2017

The Knicks had not ruled out re-signing Rose, but another injury means the 28-year-old will find a tough free-agent market. It could have been worse. Rose tore the ACL in his left knee during the 2012 playoffs and missed the entire following season, and he then tore the meniscus in his right knee in his first season back from surgery, costing him the final 72 games in 2013-14.

Browns coach Jackson likes private workouts, not pro days Browns coach Jackson likes private workouts, not pro days
- March 29, 2017

Cleveland Browns Head Coach Hue Jackson says he hopes Robert Griffin III has more opportunities after his release by the Browns. Would either coach be interested in drafting a quarterback, maybe. Osweiler will be with the Browns for offseason workouts, Jackson said. "It was a shocker to me", McNair said Monday. While the free agent system is partly to blame - and that's partly why good teams are built through the draft - most of that is actually the Texans' own fault. (more...)

Why the New York Jets should sign Dont'a Hightower
- March 15, 2017

It's unclear, to this point, how interested the Jets are in Hightower, if they offered a contract, or if they were just doing their due diligence. Forget about Dont'a Hightower signing with the Titans . Most every other position has been picked apart, and the Raiders haven't been in on it. Getting a guy like Zach Brown to fill their glaring middle linebacker spot could be their only chance to make any significant addition this free agency period. (more...)

With 13:07 remaining Thursday, Duke was disappointing again, trailing Louisville (24-8) 61-49 after being overpowered and out-hustled for the umpteenth time this season.
