Nate Davis USA TODAY Published 6:32 AM EDT Apr 30, 2019 The 2019 NFL draft now complete, the roster-building process for the league's 32 teams is basically complete heading into next season. Sure, clubs will tinker — prominent free agents like Ndamukong Suh, Eric Berry, Michael Crabtree and Ziggy Ansah remain unsigned. But even with the writing on the wall for veterans like the Giants' Eli Manning, Broncos' Joe Flacco and Bengals' Andy Dalton — each of their teams just selected a quarterback — their starting jobs appear safe for Week 1, at minimum, and probably all year. However other established players could find themselves on the move. For example, with first-round ILB Devin Bush in the fold, the Steelers cut Jon Bostic, who started 14 games last season, after the draft ended Saturday evening. Here are a few others whose jobs suddenly look tenuous given the rookies headed in their direction: Eagles WR Nelson Agholor: … [Read more...] about NFL draft 2019: 13 veterans put on notice after teams’ moves

Wednesday's full release of the regular-season schedule laid the framework for the league's 100th season.

Here are the top 10 regular-season games for the 2019 NFL season: 10. Packers at Bears, Sept. 5 (Week 1) To kick off its centennial campaign, the NFL bucked the tradition of having its defending champions host the opener and instead will train the spotlight on its longest-running rivalry. Last year's Week 1 showdown between the Packers and Bears was one of 2018's best clashes, with Aaron Rodgers throwing three second-half touchdowns after a knee injury to power Green Bay to a 24-23 win. Chicago, however, went on … [Read more...] about NFL schedule 2019: Top 10 games heavy on Chiefs, Patriots, Browns
Yes, our March Madness brackets are already a mess, too. But here's one safe prediction for the 2019 NCAA Basketball Tournament that tipped off this week: it will feature more wagering than ever before. Sports betting: The basics That's because last year the Supreme Court overturned a federal law and ruled that it is up to the states to decide whether they want to legalize sports gambling. New Jersey led the way, many more followed and more are planning to soon. This shift will bring a windfall to bookmakers, sports leagues, and states' tax revenues. But at what cost? This is the first year of widely legalized sports gambling, but 2019 also marks another milestone: the 100-year anniversary of the Chicago Black Sox scandal, when a team in the clutches of gambling mobsters threw the World Series. It's a reminder that, you might say, there's no such thing as a free hunch. Thursday's opening day of March Madness provided a feast for college basketball fans: 16 games in one day and … [Read more...] about Will legalized sports betting curtail corruption or encourage it?

Brent Schrotenboer USA TODAY Published 6:30 AM EDT Mar 15, 2019 In May 1975, a former dress manufacturer named Harry Kraft died in Boston and left his son Robert an “ethical will” — a Jewish custom that typically shares lessons of life upon death. Robert Kraft disclosed that message to USA TODAY Sports in 1997: “Remember the legacy I’m trying to leave you is a good name,” the father told the son. “It is a man’s most precious asset.” Forty-four years later, that asset is being publicly tested like never before despite a lifetime of philanthropy and goodwill. After making a fortune in the paper and packaging business, Robert Kraft donated hundreds of millions to various causes and has led the New England Patriots to six Super Bowl wins since buying the team in 1994. In January, he even was awarded the so-called “Jewish Nobel” prize by the Genesis Prize Foundation for his commitment to Israel … [Read more...] about Robert Kraft: Love and loss marked eccentric life before spa scandal
