    The Baltimore Ravens really wanted to draft Memphis wide receiver Calvin Austin III in the fourth round, but the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers beat them to the punch by one pick. As Najee Harris was announcing the Pittsburgh Steelers‘ fourth-round pick of Calvin Austin III live from Mexico City in day three of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens‘ war room could not believe their arch rival took their guy one pick before them. While Pittsburgh had already used a second-round pick on former Georgia standout George Pickens to re-solidify their receiving corps, Baltimore did not expect for the former Memphis star Austin to be going to the Steelers. They ended up taking Coastal Carolina tight end Isaiah Likely with the pick they were hoping to use on Austin. It is good, old-fashioned division rival pettiness. Echoing from the Ravens’ war room after the Steelers’ pick of Austin, “you gotta be kidding me.” The Ravens wanted Calvin Austin III. The Steelers took him one pick before they could get him. Someone in the Ravens draft room shouted, “You gotta...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The 2022 NFL Draft has come and gone, and like a fever dream, people are trying to figure out what Bill Belichick was up to over the NFL’s three-day extravaganza. New England ended up making 10 selections in the draft, and the majority of them were massive reaches that would make anyone’s back ache. After trading back in the first round, the Patriots drafted guard Cole Strange out The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with the 29th overall pick. He was seen by most as a second-round selection — at best. READ MORE: Patriots Sign Seven Undrafted Free Agents, Including A Perfect Bill Belichick Player From MiamiThen on Day 2, the Patriots kicked things off by traded up four spots to take speedster wide receiver Tyquan Thornton at No. 50.

The Patriots did address their need at cornerback, taking slot corner/return man Marcus Jones out of Houston in the third round and Jack Jones out of Arizona State in the fourth round, but they did not...
    Getty Bears LB Roquan Smith threw some major hype Nakobe Dean's way. One of the biggest surprises of the 2022 NFL draft is how far former Georgia linebacker Nakobe Dean fell. Originally projected to be a late first-round or early second-round pick, Dean dropped to 83rd overall, finally getting selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the third round. According to Chicago Bears stud linebacker Roquan Smith, a fellow Bulldogs alum, the Eagles walked away with the draft’s biggest steal. “Nakobe about to be the biggest steal of draft,” Smith tweeted on April 29, adding: “Mark my words.” Nakobe about to be the biggest steal of draftMark my words — Ro (@RoquanSmith1) April 29, 2022 ALL the latest Bears news straight to your inbox!

    Getty NBC Sports NFL analyst Chris Simms gushed over the Vikings selecting Georgia safety Lewis Cine (16) in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 28, 2022. The Minnesota Vikings selected Georgia safety Lewis Cine with the final pick of the first round after trading down from the No. 12 spot — a move that was met with scrutiny due to the players still available before the trade. That included the consensus top safety Kyle Hamilton, who the Baltimore Ravens selected at No. 14 overall. However, general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah was ecstatic about the value of selecting Cine with the 32nd pick received in a trade with the Detroit Lions. The Vikings got the second-best safety in the draft (whom Adofo-Mensah said they were eyeing in the teens of the draft), along with moving up 12 spots in the second round and a third-round pick. How Cine (pronounced seen) compares to Hamilton this upcoming season will be closely followed by critics of the new regime’s trade. However, NBC Sports analyst and former NFL quarterback...

    Paris (CNN)As France gears up for a presidential campaign amid a savage fifth coronavirus wave sweeping the country, for the first time in the nation's history, female candidates occupy three of the principal axes of the political spectrum and may hold the key to the nation's future.Far-right perennial Marine Le Pen, Socialist Parisian Mayor Anne Hidalgo and conservative governor of the Paris region Valérie Pécresse each pose a unique challenge to the incumbent, President Emmanuel Macron. For the moment though, he has still not officially declared his candidacy, Macron remains the favorite to clinch a second and final five-year term.The task before these women is large, but not impossible. In their bid to become France's first female president, they must beat a broad field of more than a dozen candidates in the first round of voting happening in early April. If no one receives a majority here, it will be down to the all-important second round between the top two candidates two weeks later.

    Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey said earlier this week that Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase has made the NFL look easy. Defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale called the Bengals’ first-round draft pick a hybrid of the Cleveland Browns’ do-it-all threat Odell Beckham Jr. and Los Angeles Rams speedster DeSean Jackson. When the Ravens lost to the Bengals, 41-17, on Sunday afternoon, Chase might have put himself in a category of his own, as he delivered a historic performance more suited for a veteran. Chase had 201 receiving yards and a touchdown on eight receptions and 10 targets, becoming the first rookie receiver since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Mike Evans in 2014 to have 200 receiving yards and a touchdown in a game. The former LSU standout is also the fifth rookie receiver to have 200 or more yards in a single game since 2001. Chase’s 754 yards are the the most by any player in his first seven games since 1970. “We wanted to do better against him,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “Obviously, our...
    TYSON FURY'S former trainer has revealed the tiny detail which enabled him to get up from the hard knockdown against Deontay Wilder.

Fury then somehow got back to his feet and, despite being floored again in the final seconds of the round, stormed back to knock Wilder out and retain his WBC heavyweight title. And Ben Davison, who trained Fury for the first fight with Wilder which ended in a controversial draw, believes the fact that he tucked...

    Naomi Osaka's bid to become the first Japanese player ever to win tennis Olympic gold came to a abrupt halt as she was beaten in straight sets by Marketa Vondrousova in the last-16. Osaka, world No 2, was considered the tournament favourite once Wimbledon champion and world No 1 Ash Barty suffered a shock round one exit but she admitted pressure got to her today.  Vondrousova, who reached the final of the French Open in 2019, was ruthless in her execution and having took the first set 6-1 in just 24 minutes, she held her nerve in the second set to run out 6-1, 6-4 winner.  Having ended her media boycott when she arrived at this tournament it appeared it was back on as she made a hasty exit after the loss.

    At one point not so long ago, Kumar Rocker was rumored to be the potential No. 1 pick in the 2021 MLB Draft. But the hard-throwing Vanderbilt right-hander fell — all the way into the Mets’ lap at No. 10 — in the first round of the draft Sunday night. Rocker was second in the country in strikeouts, after teammate and second overall pick Jack Leiter, with 173 strikeouts in 117.2 innings. He helped the Commodores reach the College World Series. Kumar RockerGetty Images A source said there were whispers of high money demands and his velocity was slightly down this year, which could have contributed to Rocker sliding down the draft board. Still, Rocker went 14-4 and compiled a 2.73 ERA. MLB.com rated him as the sixth-best prospect in the draft. “I think New York really got a steal at No. 10,” MLB Network draft analyst Jim Callis said shortly after the selection.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS)- The Eagles 2021 draft class is the second straight in which the team has brought in nine or more picks as the organization looks to infuse youth into a roster that had steadily gotten older since the Super Bowl run. The prospects have yet to sign or workout with the team yet, so we don’t know how they will fit in the new system under head coach Nick Sirianni or how impactful they will be. However, that didn’t stop ESPN’s Mel Kiper from praising the team for its selection of running back Kenneth Gainwell in the fifth round.

    The Chicago Bears finally got it right in the 2021 NFL Draft ukoshul May 3, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditWith the 2021 NFL Draft officially having concluded, the Chicago Bears came away with quite the haul. First-round picks quarterback Justin Fields highlight’s the Bears class, but second-round pick offensive tackle Teven Jenkins projects to be a day one starter. Chicago used its final five draft picks to add players who are expected to be depth options in 2021 but could eventually become starters down the road. What’s significant about the Bears draft haul is that five of Chicago’s seven draft picks were offensive players. Investing heavily on offense isn’t something that the Bears franchise has been known to do. In what is a defense-first town, the Bears have lacked on offense. Between 2019 and 2020, Chicago’s offense was in the bottom half of the NFL in nearly every category. Head coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace both saw issues that the Bears had in 2020 and used the 2021 NFL Draft to...
    The Giants got better in this 2021 NFL Draft. But how much better? Enough to win the NFL’s most mediocre division, which was decided via pillow fight in 2020? Possibly … with an asterisk, because there are asterisks attached to every NFL draft. This was Dave Gettleman’s fourth draft as Giants general manager. At 70 years old, with a 15-33 record in his first three years and with a standing mandate from Giants ownership to better his “batting average,’’ it’s possible this might have been his last as a GM, pending 2021 results. In honor of Gettleman’s four Giants drafts, here are four takes on this one: Take One: The Giants strengthened their strengths. With two of their first three picks, the Giants added to two positions they’d already improved via free agency — wide receiver and cornerback — with receiver Kadarius Toney in the first round and corner Aaron Robinson in the third. Prior to the draft, the Giants spent $112 million in free agency on receiver Kenny Golladay and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson. Take Two: The Giants finally addressed...

    John Boehner details in his upcoming book the time then-businessman Donald Trump exploded at his staffer as an 'idiot' and screamed 'f***ing listen' when the aide got their golfing partners' names wrong. In his book 'On the House: A Washington Memoir', set for release next week, the former Republican House speaker says during the outing that day, Trump only played with a five handicap and Boehner was 'blown away' by how good he was at golf. In an excerpt from the book released by Punchbowl News Thursday morning, Boehner recalled the bizarre day when during a fundraising swing he was out-of-the-blue paired with Trump for a round of golf at his Mar-a-Lago club against two insurance executives. At the time, Boehner was House minority leader and it was several years before Trump made his 2016 run for the White House. 'He was very friendly, but in an in-your-face, this-is-how-they-talk-in-New-York kind of a way that I was not used to at all. Direct, loud, intense,' Boehner wrote. 'Pretty much the same guy who got elected to the White House. I can...

Punchbowl News obtained an early copy of Boehner’s On the House: A Washington Memoir, and they shared an excerpt in which the former House speaker recounted an incident from years ago when he was set to play golf with two high-profile insurance executives as part of a fundraising endeavor. Boehner recalled being told Trump would join them for the outing, and while he wasn’t sure what to think about that at the time, “his name was on the door of the club, and if he wanted to come out with us, none of us were going to say no.” Trump and Boehner were paired up for the day, but before the round got started, the future president approached one of Boehner’s staffers, John Criscuolo (whom the former speaker calls “BJ”), and asked for the names of the two insurance executives filling out the foursome. “I think they’re Joe...

In Wisconsin, officials estimate self-employed and gig workers won't get that extra aid until at least April 21 — almost four months later. Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwards Other workers who had exhausted their state benefits just began receiving the extended aid on Thursday, according to Wisconsin's Department of Workforce Development.

But, while they wait for the funds, jobless individuals must go without income support they may need to pay rent or buy food.'Antiquated'Wisconsin labor officials blamed...
    THE IRS has now paid out outstanding first and second round stimulus checks - but suggested some may still be eligible to receive funds. In a statement, the office said that "as required by law, all legally permitted first and second-round of Economic Impact Payments have been issued and the IRS now turns its full attention to the 2021 filing season." 2THE IRS Says it has now back paid all first second Stimulus checksCredit: Getty Images - Getty A statement on the IRS website reads: “Most people who are eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit have already received it, in advance, in these two rounds of Economic Impact Payments.” It added: “If individuals didn't receive a payment – or if they didn't receive the full amounts – they may be eligible to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit and must file a 2020 tax return.” The agency urged people to file and complete an accurate tax return for 2020 in order to receive this if eligible.

    The first blockbuster trade of the year is done. Jared Goff will be packing his bags for Detroit while Matthew Stafford will be headed the other way to LA. The quarterbacks are in contrasting phases of their careers. Stafford, the first overall pick in 2009, is now a seasoned veteran. Goff, on the other hand, is still establishing himself in the league as a potential franchise QB. The trade for Stafford was expected to be sorted out sooner rather than later. But the trade package the LA Rams offered for his services raised several eyebrows. With both franchises having a different set of goals for 2021, we look at whether the Detroit Lions or the LA Rams got the better deal. The Blockbuster deal The LA Rams will be swapping Jared Goff, the 2016 first overall pick, for the more experienced Stafford. But along with it, they will also be giving up their 2022 and 20123 first-round picks. To sweeten the deal further, the Detroit Lions will also be getting a 2021 third-round pick. Matthew Stafford can propel the Rams...
    New York : At last, after months of a completely fractured relationship, the Houston Rockets and James Harden parted ways, It was not easy at all and so the bizarre and surreal massive change that had to take place for the break to happen. James Harden had his way and is now a new Brooklyn Nets player. This was reported by journalist Shams Chanaria through his official Twitter account, stating that both quintets reached an agreement which also involves the Indiana Pacers and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rockets are acquiring Caris LeVert in James Harden deal from Brooklyn and sending LeVert to Indiana to acquire two-time All-Star Victor Oladipo – in addition to the four first-round picks and four draft pick swaps, sources said. https://t.co/3Tsm0dErtP – Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 13, 2021 Be careful, because it is complicated: on the one hand, lThe Rockets welcome Victor Oladipo, Dante Exum and Rodions KurucsIn addition to four first-round picks and four draft changes, lPacers host Caris LeVert and a second-round pick, while Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince arrive at the Cavaliers, all...
    The Houston Rockets got pennies on the dollar by trading Russell Westbrook on Wednesday.No, the Houston Rockets did not get what the Oklahoma City Thunder did for Russell Westbrook. When nobody was expecting it, the Rockets pulled off a blockbuster trade with the Washington Wizards. Houston and Washington swapped point guards, as Westbrook went to the nation’s capital, while John Wall and a first-round pick came Houston’s way. In terms of what the Thunder got in exchange for Westbrook last offseason, Houston did not get a similar haul in its deal. Houston needs to draft well and hope John Wall can stay healthyWhen the Thunder traded Westbrook to the Rockets, Oklahoma City essentially wound up Trevor Ariza, Justin Jackson, Ty Jerome, T.J. Leaf, four first-round picks, two pick swaps and three second-round picks. Though none of those players is Westbrook or Wall’s caliber, the Thunder gained a ton of assets to jumpstart their rebuild. Houston got Wall’s bad contract and a first-round pick in exchange for Westbrook. While it doesn’t feel like OKC will be playoff teams in the deep...
    By JIMMY GOLEN, AP Sports Writer AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Bryson DeChambeau isn’t afraid to let it rip — with his clubs or his mouth. Both caused him some trouble at the Masters this week. The reigning U.S. Open champion raised eyebrows at Augusta National when he said he thought of the par-72 course as a par 67 because of his ability to reach the par 5s in two shots and the 350-yard, par-4 third in one. But DeChambeau wasn’t able to back that up Thursday in the opening round, shooting a 2-under 70 to end the day five strokes behind leader Paul Casey. He played the par 5s at 1 under — not bad, but not where he could have been if it weren’t for a double bogey on No. 13, the very first par 5 he encountered in the tournament. “I tried to take on some risk today. It didn’t work out as well as I thought it would have," he said. “This golf course, as much as I’m trying to attack it, it can bite back. It’s...
