Former Texans safety Tyrann Mathieu signed with the Kansas City Chiefs for 3 years, $42 million. Ex-Baltimore Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley for 5 years, $85 million with $51 million guaranteed.

Former Carolina Panther and 3 time NFL Pro Bowl linebacker Thomas Davis inked a deal with the Los Angeles Chargers. Linebacker Terrell Suggs, who was with the Baltimore Ravens for 16 seasons signed a one year deal worth $7 million with the Arizona Cardinals. The biggest winner of the week was the Oakland Raiders in a surprise trade for All-Pro wide receiver and superstar Antonio Brown from the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers received a 3rd round and 5th round pick in this year’s draft. Brown wanted out following a strained relationship between the receiver and his former team that brewed over the past season. With dozens of free agents left, the position needs of many teams will be met and should make for an interesting draft this year. With the biggest free agent, former Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell still available, this could be the most exciting free agency shake...

Having been a part of Texas A&M, he would be automatically assigned to the Commanders if the league signed him to a contract. Manziel won the Heisman in his junior year...

Spurs Buyout Gasol Contract, Signs With Bucks

The San Antonio Spurs have bought out our former Center Pau Gasol. Gasol was due $16 million this year and another $16 million next season. But, with inconsistent rotations all season, Pau’s injuries, and diminished role on the team, the Spurs felt it was time to move on. Pau immediately found a home hours later after news broke out. He signed with the number one team in the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks, after being recruited by former Chicago Bulls teammate Nikola Mirotic. Gasol did surrender, however, $2 million off his contract so the Spurs would be less over the salary cap this year and next season. He thanked the Spurs organization, his teammates, and the Spurs fans for his time in San Antonio across his social media accounts and showed his excitement to join the Milwaukee Bucks to the Bucks fans and finished his posts with the Bucks hashtag #FearTheDeer. Pau will most definitely add veteran knowledge and definitely Champion experience to the young and inexperienced Bucks team. Having won 2 NBA Championships with the Los Angeles Lakers and been part of playoff teams his entire career, the Bucks have made a key addition despite his career low stats. This season Gasol averaged 4 points per game and 4 rebounds in 12 minutes as a Spur. Spurs fans showed their popular loyal fandom and thanked Pau for his...
