The 49ers and Sherman agreed to a three-year contract that was officially announced by the team Sunday.

Posted on by

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but Sherman told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Saturday that the incentive-laden deal is worth up to $39.15 million.

“Once I make a Pro Bowl, $8 million the next year is guaranteed for me. It gives me the ability to control my destiny. The 49ers have skin in the game. I have skin in the game. In my former contract, no matter what I did this year, nothing would be guaranteed to me next year. I couldn’t feel secure in my contract. Now, if I play the way I know I’m capable of playing, I know I’m going to get paid.”

Sherman said he called the Seahawks to gauge their interest on matching the 49ers’ offer but was turned down based on the incentives. He also reached out to the Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions before finalizing the deal in San Francisco.

The returns here are hardly insignificant. The Browns sent the first pick of the third round to the Bills for Taylor, a selection which has delivered a pair of All-Pros in Travis Kelce and Kevin Byard in recent years. That pick gives the Bills five of the top 65 selections in this year’s draft, and after trading their former starting signal-caller, it seems incredibly likely that general manager Brandon Beane will move up to target his quarterback of the future early in the first round.

Trading up might also be easier if the Browns are out of the quarterback market. There was certainly scuttlebutt going around the NFL combine last week that Dorsey and the Browns were not overly enthused with any of the passer options available in this year’s draft, although I’d be hesitant to buy into that, given how much more of the draft process there is still to go and how wary teams are to play their hand with their interest in quarterbacks.

Taylor also has 283 carries for 1,575 yards and 14 touchdowns during that span, trailing only Cam Newton in all three categories. Taylor sits 20th in passing yards during those three seasons, but the low turnover rate and rushing numbers have made him a sneaky fantasy option. He ranked sixth at the position in fantasy points per game in 2015 and seventh in 2016, before plummeting to 19th during a disappointing 2017 campaign.

The offense in Cleveland will — believe it or not — be better than what Taylor had in Buffalo. He’ll be behind one of the league’s best offensive lines (Joe Thomas, Joel Bitonio, JC Tretter, Kevin Zeitler, Shon Coleman), with Duke Johnson Jr. (and a rookie — perhaps Saquon Barkley) in the backfield, rising star David Njoku at tight end and Landry, Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman at wide receiver. At least out of the gate, Taylor is best-viewed as a solid QB2 option, though if the team drafts a rookie in the top five, he may simply be keeping the seat warm for a few months.buccaneers_092

MLB free agent rumors: Carlos Gomez signs one-year deal with Rays

Posted on by

Carlos Gomez has signed a one-year deal worth $4 million with the Tampa Bay Rays, according to

This comes one day after the Rays traded right fielder Steven Souza to the Diamondbacks in a three-team trade involving the Yankees which returned second baseman Nick Solak and left-handed pitcher Anthony Banda to Tampa Bay.

The Yankees received infielder Brandon Drury in return.

The Angels could also use Ohtani on the basepaths.

“I think that if he is going to play baseball, he’s going to play baseball,” Scioscia said. “Like any player, you want him to go out there and play as aggressively as they can. So if he’s running the bases, just like the rest of our guys on the team, you want him to you know the bases aggressively and he does have very, very good speed.

“What situations come up where you might be able to utilize his speed, that remains to be seen, but if he’s playing baseball and he’s DHing and he’s on the bases, he’s a runner. He’s not a pitcher, not a hitter, he’s a runner. So we want to apply that.”

According to, players will then autograph the hats and they will go on the auction block to raise money for he Broward Education Foundation, which will benefit the official Stoneman Douglas Victims’ Fund.

The #Reds will join the rest of MLB in honoring victims of last week’s shooting in Florida by wearing Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School hats at Friday’s opening spring training game.

“It’s a tragedy. It was a tragedy that hit the state of Florida, where we have two teams, but obviously has very specific baseball connections,” commissioner Rob Manfred said. “Really a very strong sentiment among the clubs that this was the appropriate thing to do immediately.”

Originally, members of the Grapefruit League asked if they could don caps to honor the victims. The sentiment gained steam across training camps, and soon all 30 MLB teams were on board with the idea.buccaneers_034

MLB free agent news: Royals add Lucas Duda to take over 1B

Posted on by

The Royals added a much-needed power bat Wednesday by agreeing to terms with free agent first baseman Lucas Duda, the team announced.

FanRag Sports reported the contract is for one year at $3.5 million. Duda launched 30 home runs last season playing for the Mets and Rays, but he batted just .217.

Duda, a lifetime .242 hitter, has hit at least 27 home runs in three of the last four seasons. But he has only played 150-plus games once (2014) during his seven-year career.

Well, it depends on how much you believe what Brady and Alex Guerrero say. The regimen focuses on flexibility and building up small muscles rather than heavy lifting. Brady preaches a diet filled with the most health-intuitive stuff you can find, a good portion of which is oh-so-conveniently available from his website. Lots of water infused with the TB12 electrolyte mixture, lots of protein shakes with the TB12 protein powder, lots of TB12 snacks, and so on.

Brady himself is clearly a paragon of athleticism maintained well beyond the shelf life of a usual athlete, but it’s probably safer to attribute that to his natural gifts than to his cottage industry. You don’t need multiple paragraphs running down how Brady was a freak athlete before the TB12 craze took off. You know how good he was, and still is.

Giants: This is mostly speculation, but here’s the thing: This is a franchise dead-set on completely reversing last summer’s injury-plagued debacle, and there isn’t much certainly past the top three spots in the rotation. Archer would fit nicely into the rotation behind Madison Bumgarner, but logic says if the teams were going to find a way to get Archer to San Francisco, they would have done that as part of the deal that sent Evan Longoria to the Bay Area.

Padres: They brought Eric Hosmer in to be a leader for their young team. Archer fits that same bill, too, and maybe they’re ready to contend by Archer’s two option years.

Rockies: The Rockies have plenty of young, talented starting pitchers who could be very good. Archer, though, would bring a lot more certainty to a franchise that wants to have a playoff experience that lasts longer than one game in 2018. seahawks_117_327518212f9164ec-180x180

NBA trade rumors: Cavaliers, Kings still working on deal for George Hill

Posted on by

George Hill isn’t thrilled with his situation in Sacramento and the Cavaliers are in the midst of a tense losing streak. Something needs to change for each party and it appears Cleveland is trying to address their problems with the addition of Hill.

Following nearly a decade as a player, Griffin has served as an assistant coach in Milwaukee, Chicago, Orlando and currently Oklahoma City. He has a habit of building relationships with those around him. He’s a guy who has made an impact at every stop but doesn’t need to take credit for individual or team success. Griffin is also a defensive-minded coach, having spent time under Tom Thibodeau with the Bulls, and that’s absolutely something the Bucks could use, as they own the sixth-worst defensive rating in the NBA.

Boylen has been coaching for more than three decades now, starting back in 1987 as an assistant with Michigan State and currently serving as the associate head coach for the Bulls. Boylen knows what it takes to win, having been part of title teams with both the Rockets in 1994 and 1995 and the Spurs in 2014. The young Bucks could use some championship experience.

James’ eight triple-doubles are already his second-most in a season in his 15-year career. It’s also the most he’s ever had before the All-Star break. James’ career high for triple-doubles is 13, done last season.

Kevin Love, who was singled out as a target by players in the locker room, scored 10 points with 13 rebounds in 33 minutes. Love has already said he will not ask for a trade, and coach Tyronn Lue remained faithful to his forward by keeping him in the starting lineup amid the shakeup.

All-Star Victor Oladipo led the Pacers with 25 points, seven assists and six rebounds. He has scored at least 20 points in all but four games this month.

The Cavs entered the game losers in six of seven games, but they got back on track to remain third in the Eastern Conference standings, six games behind the Celtics.lions_017

Matt is driven to succeed, has extreme passion for the game and excels in preparation.

Posted on by

“When we launched the search for our next head coach, I wanted to find a leader that could take us to the next level and I am confident we have found that in Matt Patricia. He has been preparing for this opportunity his entire career, and he’s ready for the responsibility and its challenges,” general manager Bob Quinn said.

“Matt is driven to succeed, has extreme passion for the game and excels in preparation. He embodies the same hard-working, blue-collar attributes that represent our organization and the great City of Detroit.”

During the past six seasons, he has served as the team’s defensive coordinator. During that span, the Patriots rank second in points allowed (19.2) and an NFL-best plus-71 turnover differential.

Patricia will replace Jim Caldwell, who was fired Jan. 1 after four seasons. During that time, he posted a 36-28 mark and failed to win a playoff game in the two years the team made it to the postseason.

The 65,000-seat stadium that can expand to seat 75,000 hosted it’s first NFL game in 1998. And of course, like Hard Rock Stadium in South Florida, it too recently went through a renovation project.

Raymond James Stadium now boasts what its website calls the most advanced HD video system in use today. With two 9,600 square-foot boards (north and south ends of the stadium) and four 2,300 square-foot HD tower walls, it ranks as the third-largest video board system in the NFL.

The new sound system has 400-plus speakers throughout the stadium, providing 750,000 watts of power.

NFL rules require a stadium to have been open two full seasons before it can host a Super Bowl, so a change needed to be made when construction delays meant the Rams and Chargers wouldn’t be able to play in their new stadium until 2020.patriots_301_205870d5d034964b-180x180
