  • Robert Griffin III making Ravens' QB decision harder
    Months ago, I had stated that the Baltimore Ravens wouldn’t be keeping three quarterbacks on the roster. Preparing for Baltimore’s third preseason game – the second for the rest of the NFL – I’m not so sure. And it’s all thanks to Robert Griffin III’s play thus far. Coming off a year away from the NFL, no one really knew what to expect from Griffin III. Add to it a stacked team where every spot on the 53-man roster is going to be vital for the regular season and I figured Griffin didn’t really stand much of a chance with Joe Flacco being the obvious starter and Lamar Jackson being the new rookie and eventual heir anywhere from next year on. On a one-year deal, everything added up for Griffin More

  • Elway’s Kaepernick comments could be problematic for NFL
    As the NFL tries to show that the collective shunning of Colin Kaepernick didn’t result from collusion, one of the teams at the heart of the before/after anthem protest attitude toward Kaepernick may have made things a bit more difficult. Broncos G.M. John Elway, who recently opened the door to bringing in a backup quarterback from outside the organization, attempted on Thursday to explain his lingering lack of interest in Kaepernick, a player for whom the Broncos tried to trade in 2016. Here’s Elway’s full quote, from Ian Rapoport of NFL Media: “Colin had his chance here. More

  • Gronk’s girlfriend welcomes Eric Decker’s wife to Patriots camp
    Jessie James Decker is the newest member of #PatsNation. On Wednesday, Eric Decker’s wife attended the Patriots’ training camp, where she and the couple’s three children cheered on the journeyman receiver, who signed with New England earlier this month after a year in Tennessee. “Family is football,” the country singer captioned a series of shots on Instagram, including a photo of 2-year-old son Eric wearing his dad’s helmet. The Deckers appear to be well-received by the Patriots community, including Rob Gronkowski and girlfriend Camille Kostek. Following practice, the Sports Illustrated stunner posed with her favorite player for a picture taken by her new friend. “Watching you practice is cool, More

  • MLB Rumors: This Team Emerging As Manny Machado’s ‘First Choice’ In Free Agency
    The baseball world was fixated on Manny Machado as this year’s non-waive trade deadline approached, and there’s no doubt the star shortstop will be garnering heaps of attention once again this winter. Machado is set to hit the open market at the conclusion of the 2018 season, and he’s poised to be one of the most sought-after free agents along with Bryce Harper. While it’s probably too early to pinpoint a favorite in Machado sweepstakes 2.0, one team might already have a leg up. According to Fancred Sports’ Jon Heyman, the New York Yankees very well could be Machado’s preferred destination in the offseason. “…People close to Machado suggest the Yankees might just be his first choice,” Heyman More

  • Former JBA player claims LaVar Ball's league cut off contact after reneging on promised checks
    LaVar Ball’s league has hit some speed bumps since its inception, but, hey, at least it’s given LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball a place to play. If LaVar Ball really wants his Junior Basketball Association to challenge the current player development system, its paychecks are going to need to come on time. Former JBA player Brandon Phillips (@itsbphilly) tells me the league only paid him about 1/3 of what he was promised. More

  • Clippers owner Steve Ballmer: ‘We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water’
    The Lakers and Clippers share an arena in Los Angeles, which – as everyone understands it – means the Clippers play in the Lakers’ arena. That doesn’t sit well with Clippers owner Steve Ballmer. So, he wants to get a new arena built just for the Clippers More

  • Kevin Love on LeBron James: ‘He’s playing chess and everyone else is playing checkers’
    Kevin Love is the man in Cleveland now, with LeBron James having gone to Hollywood. The best player of his generation is gone, and Love had nothing but praise for LeBron and his willingness to take on a challenge in a sit-down interview with ESPN. Love is right, LeBron loves a challenge, but the one with the Lakers is unlike anything else in his career. More

  • Mayfield could be Browns' No. 3 quarterback
    Cleveland quarterback Tyrod Taylor is the presumed opening-day starter for the Browns. But if Taylor suffers an early season injury, will it be No. 1 overall selection Baker Mayfield on the field in his place? More

  • It took more than money to shut up a Tiger Woods heckler
    The job description for Tiger Woods’ caddie apparently now includes going to great lengths to defend the 14-time major champion from verbally abusive fans. Joe LaCava, Woods’ caddie since 2011, got so fed up with one persistent heckler following Woods during the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, a tuneup before last weekend’s PGA Championship, he approached the spectator looking for answers. And initially, LaCava thought he had one in the form of a simple payoff. “I said, ‘At the end of the day if you affect [Woods’] performance here, it affects my bottom line,” LaCava said Wednesday of his interaction with the fan on ESPN Radio’s “Golic and Wingo.” “So he calls me a couple names and More

  • Akshay Bhatia's U.S. Amateur ends after rules violation – and it wasn't right
    PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – I feel for Akshay Bhatia. The 16-year-old golfer from Wake Forest, N.C., deserved to be playing Thursday morning in the Round of 32. Nothing against his first-round opponent, Bradford Tilley, but Bhatia was sent home Wednesday at the U.S. Amateur because of an unfortunate rules violation made by his caddie – and that’s not right. Bhatia’s caddie, local Chris Darnell, technically broke a rule when he accepted a cart ride from a volunteer after using the restroom as Bhatia played Pebble Beach’s par-5 14th hole. Bhatia, who also used the restroom but walked back, went on to make birdie while Tilley made par. However, a rules official informed Bhatia and Darnell of the violation. More

  • Gruden calls off Raiders' final practice of training camp
    Jon Gruden called off practice Thursday, ending his first training camp back with the Oakland Raiders a day earlier than originally planned. Instead of going through a light practice, as is customary on the final day of training camp, players rushed to pack their bags and sped out to make the 60-mile drive south to the team's headquarters in Alameda. The switch also gives the players an extra day of rest before Saturday's preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams. More

  • Winners And Losers From Packers' Rout Of Steelers
    The Green Bay Packers rolled past the Pittsburgh Steelers, 51-34, Thursday in the second exhibition game for both teams. Here are the Packers’ winners and losers. Spoiler alert: There were far more winners than losers. Winner: OLB Reggie Gilbert Back in 2000, Packers rookie defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila spent more than half the year on the practice squad. One year later, KGB made the roster and posted a whopping 13.5 sacks. Could outside linebacker Reggie Gilbert be the next KGB? Gilbert continued his terrific summer with 2.5 sacks and three quarterback hits Thursday. Gilbert spent the majority of 2016 and ’17 on Green Bay’s practice squad. But the way Gilbert has played this summer, he’s More

  • It's a three-man race for the NL Cy Young involving Nationals' Max Scherzer, Mets' Jacob deGrom and surprising name
    The MLB season has hit the dog days of August and this is about the time we can seriously start discussing the races for major individual awards in addition to keeping watch on the divisional and wild-card races. In the case of the former, this week here on CBS Sports, we'll be running through each award for each league and discussing the top candidates. We continue with Cy Young award on the National League side. For more on the American League Cy Young race, click here. The Cy Young voting, perhaps moreso than any other award, has evolved in recent years. Pitcher wins have been devalued to some degree and other performance indicators like runs allowed and strikeouts are being emphasized. Workload More

  • Ryan Clark destroys Stephen A. Smith for saying Bill Belichick isn't the GOAT
    Another morning of Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman yelling at each other while Molly Qerim tries to mediate on ESPN’s “First Take” isn’t noteworthy in and of itself. Former and longtime Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark being forced to defend Bill Belichick’s honor? Well that’s something worth diving into. In an ill-conceived, transparent attempt to create controversy and drama where there isn’t any, Smith played the antagonist in the non-debate over whether Belichick is, as Tom Brady recently said, the best NFL coach of all time. He is. You know that he is. I know that he is, and everyone on that set on Wednesday morning knows that he is. In every quantifiable way, Belichick has succeeded More
