    Khalil Mack was the first to go, and he surely will not be the last as Ryan Poles begins the long process of rebuilding the Chicago Bears, who had the second-oldest roster in the NFL at the start of a 2021 season that ended with a 6-11 record. The question is what’s next — or maybe more important, who’s next? You can’t go halfway if you’re going to tear down a team that has had one winning season in the last nine years. Any player who isn’t deemed to be potentially part of the future when the Bears are ready to contend again should be available or considered for replacement. The Bears struck a deal with the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday, agreeing to trade Mack in exchange for a second-round draft pick this year and a sixth-rounder in 2023. Poles didn’t kick off the makeover at Halas Hall with a minor transaction. He signaled this is a major renovation, not a project for a weekend warrior. The trade will saddle the Bears with $24 million in dead salary-cap space...

    The Ravens released veteran cornerback Tavon Young and announced the retirement of offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva on Wednesday, clearing nearly $12 million in salary cap space as the front office prepares for the start of free agency next week. Neither departure was a surprise. After an injury-plagued career in Baltimore, Young entered the offseason as a potential salary cap casualty. He would’ve had a $9.3 million cap hit next season, and his release saves $6 million in cap space. Villanueva was also unlikely to be retained after a disappointing first season in Baltimore. He would’ve been owed $6 million next season, the second year of the two-year, $14 million deal he signed last season. “Thank you Baltimore,” Young tweeted Wednesday. “Love from my side forever.” The moves give the Ravens important savings ahead of the start of free agency. The team has about $18 million in salary cap space, some of which will be reserved for the draft class and in-season replacements. The legal-tampering period begins Monday, and deals can be finalized Wednesday. This story will be updated. ()
    An NFL roster constantly evolves, especially in the offseason. Add a new head coach, and new coaching staff to the mix, which is what the Miami Dolphins are doing after the hiring of Mike McDaniel, and change is expected. That means players who safely made it onto the 53-man regular-season roster last year shouldn’t feel as secure with their standing this spring and summer because of the massive overhauls made the past three offseasons under general manager Chris Grier’s leadership. Here is a look at 10 players who are on the bubble heading into the start of free agency, which begins in March: Tight end Mike Gesicki ($11-18.5 million to keep on franchise tag) Gesicki has had three productive seasons with the Dolphins, catching 177 passes for 2,053 yards and scoring 13 touchdowns. But he’s been utilized more as a receiver than a tight end, so if the Dolphins attempt to use the franchise tag to ensure his return it could cost Miami an additional $7.5 million if they lose an arbitration process Gesicki and...
    The first opportunity for NFL teams to get better next year is when free agency commences. Though it is nowhere near as important as winning in the draft, NFL free agency has long been one of the most popular times in the sport. Modern NFL free agency came into play in the early 1990s with the dawn of the salary cap. It gave players more leverage to take charge of their own careers beginning in their mid-to-late 20s. While winning in free agency is not indicative of winning on the gridiron, it is a time when bad teams or fanbases who are losing hope can feel good about their teams heading into the spring. So when does 2022 NFL free agency officially begin? At 4:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 16. There is also a two-day window prior where teams can legally tamper with soon-to-be free agents and their representation, though no deal can be finalized until the new league year.2022 NFL free agency: When does free agency start?Once the clock strikes 4:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 16, teams...
    Getty The Chicago Bears have restructured Robert Quinn's contract. The Chicago Bears are moving more money to the future. The Bears restructured the contract of veteran pass rusher Robert Quinn, NFL insider Ian Rapoport tweeted on October 15. The move creates $3,512,500 in cap space for Chicago now, while moving over $30 million to future caps. The #Bears restructured the contract of pass-rusher Robert Quinn, source said, to create $3,512,500 in cap room. Previously, they had only $800,000 of room and simply needed more to operate. Chicago now has moved $30.93M into future caps. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 15, 2021 Rapoport noted that the Bears had $800,000 in cap space before the move, although Spotrac currently says they have just over $1 million. Either way, they just added $3.5 million to it, which would make their current cap space fall in the $4.3-$4.5 million range. The Bears also moved more money into the future when they converted $5.825 million of veteran tight end Jimmy Graham’s salary into a signing bonus in early September. ALL the latest Bears...
    Getty The New York Knicks are expected to make some upgrades in the offseason with the assumption being that they’re gearing up for a deeper run in the playoffs. They definitely have a bunch of cap space available thanks to the plethora of 1-year deals coming off the books, but it might not be a foregone conclusion that they’ll swing for the fences. Instead, the Knicks could stand pat for another season and pursue bigger names such as Bradley Beal or Zach LaVine when they become available. This thinking might come as a result of Chris Paul presumably looking to stay in Phoenix and Kawhi Leonard potentially missing a large chunk of next season because of surgery.Knicks Running it Back? With the NBA Draft and free agency just around the corner, the Knicks have some big decisions to make. They could hold off on big deals this summer in order to keep their cap space open for the 2022 free agent class.

    Pregnant Ellie Goulding Shows Off Her Bare Baby Bump in Sweet Photo Taken by Husband Caspar Jopling Peloton, Regulator in Talks on Treadmill Warning, WaPo Reports With the bulk of the superstars originally expected to headline 2021 free agency now signed to extensions, the NBA's attention has shifted to the less-heralded class of 2022. With Stephen Curry expected to re-sign with the Warriors before then and Bradley Beal appearing like a trade candidate this offseason, Zach LaVine may well be the most coveted free agent on the market that offseason... if he gets there. © Provided by CBS Sports Apr 9, 2019; Cleveland, OH, USA; NBA referee Brent Barnaky (36) makes a call in the second quarter of a game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Charlotte Hornets at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. The Bulls would obviously love to give him an extension prior to his free agency, but according to Bleacher Reports' A. Sherrod Blakely, rival executives do not expect LaVine to extend. That would indeed make him an unrestricted free agent in 2022, but there are a few...
    Getty Can the NBa-champion Los Angeles Lakers get better next season? In the days since the Lakers officially clinched the NBA championship with their six-game win over the Miami Heat, the focus has turned quickly toward what moves the team will make to defend their championship. Much remains uncertain about next season—the nation is still in the grip of the novel coronavirus pandemic and the NBA may be forced to start the season without fans in the stands—but it is clear that the Lakers will be able to build around the core of LeBron James and Anthony Davis. One guy probably joining them is forward Jared Dudley, who is a free agent and would have to take a limited role and a minimum contract to come back. But Dudley said he plans to return to the Lakers, assuming they want to keep him. ALL the latest Los Angeles Lakers news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Lakers newsletter here!
