Vince Young just took a HUGE step in his possible return to football - he's "finalizing his contract" with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and is now flying to Canada to close the deal. He played six seasons with the Titans and the Eagles and has also been a member of the Bills, Packers and Browns. The six-foot-five, 232-pound Young hasn't played in a regular-season National Football League game since 2011 when he was with Philadelphia.

Napoli were 3-1 down after the first leg but that didn't stop 20,000 Napoli fans turning up four hours before the start in the hope of a miracle.

B/R's Matt Miller reported the deal is expected to make Juszczyk the NFL's highest-paid fullback. I'm sure the Felton signing is the first thing they think of when they see the Bills pursuing a free agent fullback. The San Francisco 49ers' new front office regime has apparently decided its better to get off to a running start. The 49ers did not use a fullback in Chip Kelly's offense last season.
YSU got a stop on the defensive end, but a Northern Kentucky offensive rebound led to a 3-pointer by Dantez Walton , and the Penguins did not score for the rest of the game.

Allen gives the Patriots' another pass catching tight end to pair with Gronkowski, who is coming off a back surgery that sent him to season-ending injured reserve in December. With Martellus Bennett expected to leave New England, it looks like the Patriots have already found his replacement.

However, McLaren driver Alonso reckons the Red Bull racer seen in testing won't be the vehicle that it is in action come the season-opening Australian GP. "Getting more of a feel for the vehicle.

However, Gang Green is not the only one after the free agent. He's thrown for 8,608 yards with 46 touchdowns compared to 16 interceptions, splitting time as both a starter and backup in his career. It is expected to be a multi-year deal, but it's unlikely that it keeps the 49ers from continuing to pursue upgrades at the quarterback position. Hoyer fits that description.
However, self-employed workers earning less than £16,250 a year will still see a reduction in their NICs bill.

Bayern Munich vs Arsenal on 8 March 2017. Only one Champions League tie has seen a greater margin of victory for a team than Bayern's 10-2 aggregate win against Arsenal and that was the Bundesliga club's 12-1 thrashing of Sporting in 2009.

Joe Mixon will be a controversial subject at the NFL Draft, but there are at least four teams willing to consider taking the risk.
