Ohio State guard Wyatt Davis, one of the top O-linemen in the draft, was part of the first wave of players asked to be in Cleveland for the NFL Draft. Davis declined the invite so he can watch with his family, but he’ll be participating virtually.

Amazing story at the Masters: World No. 11 golfer Brooks Koepka shot E thru 9 holes, despite undergoing a Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Repair at the hands of Dr. Neal ElAttrache in early March, sources say. This is generally a 6-month rehab. Koepka is playing after 1 month 😳😳

The #Patriots  have terminated the contract of WR Julian Edelman, per the wire. He’s listed as a failed physical.

#Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and wife Ciara will host an hour-long special on NBC called "Roll Up Your Sleeves,” aimed at educating and raising awareness regarding COVID-19 vaccines. @PresElectBiden  will also appear:

#Cowboys free agent pass-rusher Aldon Smith is visiting the #Seahawks  today, per me and @MikeGarafolo . A possible low-risk, high-reward addition for Seattle if all checks out. He had 50 QB pressures and 5 sacks last year.

Random draft quote from an experienced top evaluator: “This draft is unprecedented in its sheer number of really good slot WRs.” Last year’s WR class was deep, but more outside guys. This year, it’s top inside guys.

Versatility is key: #Oregon  LT Penei Sewell, the Draft’s consensus top OT, has been training at right tackle as well as left tackle (which he played in college). Sewell is preparing for the possibility that someone with an entrenched LT drafts him & puts him at RT for a year.


The #Raiders  have released WR Antonio Brown. Wow.

The #Texans  are releasing star JJ Watt, source said.

It’s Draft Day. Finally. We need this.

Former #Seahawks  QB Tarvaris Jackson died last night in a car accident in Alabama, a spokesperson for his employer Tennessee State tells me. Jackson, 36, was TSU’s QB coach. Along with Seattle, he also played for the #Vikings  and #Bills .

Sources: Retired#Patriots  TE Rob Gronkowski has told New England that he’s interested in playing football again — and would want to do it with the #Bucs  and QB Tom Brady. A trade would have to be worked out for this to happen.

Sources: The #Steelers  are closing in on a deal to send star WR Antonio Brown to the Buffalo #Bills . There it is.

Wow. Cleveland is trying to trade for Kirk Cousins. This is real.

Sources: #Texans  QB fear Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL in practice today. A non-contact injury. MRI coming to confirm. Awful, awful.
