Cardinals to host Baker Mayfield for a visit

Former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will visit the Arizona Cardinals, according to MMQB.

The 2018 Heisman winner is one of the players Arizona is considering drafting with pick No. 15 in the NFL draft.

Last season, Mayfield threw for 4,627 yards and completed more than 70 percent of his throws. He had 43 touchdowns with only six interceptions.

Rawls, signed by Seattle as an undrafted free agent in 2015, erupted when filling in for Marshawn Lynch as a rookie. He ran for at least 100 yards four times that season, including a club rookie record 209 against the 49ers. His carries decreased in each of the last two seasons, and he was inactive for games last season. –The Los Angeles Chargers agreed to terms with defensive back Jaylen Watkins on a one-year contract.

Terms of the deal were not announced. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports the Chargers are expected to play Watkins at safety. Watkins, the older half-brother of wide receiver Sammy Watkins, was selected in the fourth round by the Eagles in 2014. In the last two seasons, he played in 28 out of 32 regular-season games, making five starts and collecting 52 total tackles. –The Kansas City Chiefs signed quarterback Matt McGloin and wide receiver Nelson Spruce to free-agent contracts. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed. McGloin, 28, joined the league with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State in 2013.

Then Reese delivered the news McKinney had been waiting to hear for years: The Yankees had called him up to Toronto. Oh, and he was starting against the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre later in the night.

I was pretty pumped, said McKinney, who was scheduled to start in left field and hit seventh after the Yankees put Aaron Hicks (strained right intercostal muscle) on the 10-day disabled list.

I’m excited. I’m here to do whatever I can to help the team. I was excited to find out I was playing today and I’m looking forward to the game.

McKinney said he had a few hours to say his goodbyes to minor league teammates and coaches before boarding a direct flight to Tampa at 1 p.m. He arrived at the stadium at about 4:45 p.m.

McKinney hit five homers in spring training but also hit.167 in 42 at-bats.

He was slated to be the Yankees’ everyday right fielder at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
