perth_map

Woods, who finished tied for second at the Honda Classic last week, ended the day with an 11-foot par-saving putt on No. 9. Woods backed that up today, ending the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational in second on four under. A superb fourth shot cut around a tree found the edge of the green, but two putts from long range added up to a double-bogey six. At the end of his first 18 holes, Tiger walked off the course in sole possession of first place with a 4-under score. Read More »

Leading a franchise turnaround is a tall order for any defensive tackle, and while the Dolphins came closest in the 10-6 campaign of 2016, they never quite got what they wanted out of the Suh era. His resume speaks for itself having earned five Pro Bowl selections, four First-Team All-Pro nods, and two Second-Team All-Pro selections. It may surprise you to see more fans are calling for his return than you may think. Read More »

perth_map

According to Sam Amick of USA Today, the team is confident he'll return around March 22 (Mar. 23, PHL time). Thompson could miss up to two weeks, per Haynes. In addition to Curry and Thompson out, the Warriors will be without Draymond Green because of right shoulder soreness. As of Wednesday morning, Thompson remains questionable for the night's matchup with the Lakers , but that's a downgrade from his initial listing, and it seems rather likely that he'll end up being held out.

Could the Eagles sign Jeremy Maclin?

perth_map

It's not like we didn't see this coming. He's the new default No. 1 receiver in Baltimore. Baltimore might not re-sign free agent Mike Wallace and could cut Jeremy Maclin .

perth_map

However, Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced their intention to appeal Rabada's series-ending ban in a bid to have him available for selection for the third Test in Cape Town. "But when I came into worldwide cricket and saw the things that go on, I was taken aback", Ngidi said.

perth_map

McCarron has backed up Andy Dalton in Cincinnati since 2014. In February, McCarron was granted the right to become an unrestricted free agent in March in an arbitration ruling regarding his National Football League service time. Glennon, who was released by the Bears on Wednesday, signed a two-year deal worth $8 million with the Cardinals . What the signing of McCarron tells me is they plan on their rookie QB coming in and playing rather immediately. Read More »

The 25-year-old safety mentioned that he was not willing to take a pay cut to National Football League reporter Gregg Rosenthal. He had signed a five-year, $62.5 million deal with $40 million guaranteed in the summer of 2016. But he also has been plagued by injuries and only last season did Mathieu appear in all 16 games.
