Shakespeare insists Leicester can win UCL Shakespeare insists Leicester can win UCL
- March 15, 2017

Leicester City have named Craig Shakespeare as first-team manager for the remainder of the season, with the club's hierarchy impressed by the team's "positive response" since the 53-year-old took caretaker charge nearly three weeks ago. This is what they've been saving themselves for, and Leicester won't get anything without a fight. Jamie Vardy's away goal in Sevilla may not have been enough to save Claudio Ranieri , who was dismissed the following day, but it had a crucial bearing ... (more...)

- March 14, 2017

Day In Redskins Free Agency: Vernon Davis Stays; Kirk Cousins Wants Out? Day In Redskins Free Agency: Vernon Davis Stays; Kirk Cousins Wants Out?
- March 10, 2017

Kirk Cousins-49ers trade rumors have started to take over social media. Yes, the franchise could use the transition tag on him (and commit to paying him $28 million for another year) so they have right of first refusal. This is what has led to all the Kirk Cousins-49ers trade rumors, with a lot of them making sense when it comes to short-term improvement. That seems pretty unlikely, as he is only signed for one more season under his current deal. (more...)

Steve Smith Sr. reports 49ers to release Torrey Smith
- March 09, 2017

Only one problem. Glennon turn it down, because he wants to be a starter and intends to test free agency this offseason, reports Caplan.

The year before, he started 13 games as a rookie, tossing for almost 2,500 yards, while throwing 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions. As the start of free agency approaches every year, there are always countless rumors that surface about one team's interest in a ... (more...)
