Raiders release popular P Marquette King

The Raiders have released popular punter Marquette King.

The Nets trail only Houston for 3-pointers made league-wide. The Rockets entered Saturday with an NBA-record 1,213.

It was Brooklyn’s 15th straight game with double-digit 3-pointers made, setting a franchise record.

The Loyola men’s basketball team was honored at the game after their surprising recent Final Four run in the NCAA Tournament.

Former Ramblers star Milton Doyle, a Nets rookie from Chicago, proudly watch his team make the run as an 11-seed.

“It was just like watching my family, enjoying all the success,” Doyle said. “It was great seeing everything that was going on and them getting all the praises and all the shout-outs from the big stars.”

Kilpatrick had at least 20 points for the third straight game, matching the longest streak of his career. He has scored double digits in six of the seven games he has played for Chicago since signing on March 26.

Nets: The teams will meet again Monday in Brooklyn, then the Nets will close the season Wednesday in Boston.

Bulls: After Monday’s rematch, the Bulls will close their season Wednesday against visiting Detroit.

Pryor will join a Jets receiving corps led by Jermaine Kearse, Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa (who missed all of 2017 with a neck injury), ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen. He also will be reuniting with two former Browns teammates: quarterback Josh McCown and running back Isaiah Crowell.

Milwaukee also committed an error for the seventh straight contest after pinch hitter Tommy La Stella’s hard bouncer caromed off Aguilar’s chest at first into short right, allowing Victor Caratini to score from second.

The errors “get a little magnified,” manager Craig Counsell said. “Three shutouts in a seven-game homestand, that is probably the surprising thing for me.”

Cubs: 1B Anthony Rizzo missed a third straight game with back tightness. Maddon said Rizzo might miss the Cubs’ home opener on Monday against Pittsburgh, but he wasn’t “overly concerned” after talking to the first baseman and the trainer. “Everything I’m hearing from him and the trainers is that he’s doing … better, so I don’t think we’re far off,” he said.

Report: Randy Gregory preparing reinstatement application

Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory, who didn’t play last season while serving a drug-related suspension, is preparing to petition the NFL for reinstatement, multiple sources told David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. Gregory has reportedly either failed or skipped at least seven drug tests over his two-year career. He also tested positive for marijuana multiple times in college.

Foster was arrested by Los Gatos Monte Sereno Police in California on Feb. 11. After making contact with Foster and the victim, police took Foster into custody without incident after their initial probe.

The deal features Denver giving up a fourth-round pick and two fifth-round picks for Cravens, a fourth-round pick and a fifth-round pick, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Denver has two fourth-round picks and three fifth-round picks, and it’s unclear which picks they’re giving up in the deal.

Reuben Foster’s tumultuous off-field history has spurred questions about whether his future with the San Francisco 49ers is in jeopardy.

Speaking at the Annual League Meeting in Orlando on Wednesday, 49ers owner Jed York said the team is prepared to potentially move on from the 2017 first-round draft pick, who was arrested in February on suspicion of domestic violence and weapon charges last month.

Well, I don’t have any insight into what the Supreme Court is going to do. We’re not privy to that. I think what we did this week was make sure people understood the, I would call it, prospects and potential for how gambling can change, in part because of the Supreme Court decision, how it’s evolved on its own beyond that. And this isn’t new work. We’ve been focusing on this for several years of how does it affect the way we operate.

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate could be next in line for contract extension

In his first two seasons as general manager, Bob Quinn has shown a propensity to get long-term deals done with his best players right before the start of the season.

He did it with Matthew Stafford and Glover Quin last year, and with Darius Slay, Theo Riddick and Sam Martin the summer before.

Goodell acknowledges there’s more work to be done on the well-intentioned rule. The league will move to make the helmet rule the first penalty to fall under the umbrella of allowable instant replay reviews. Standards need to be established to determine which infractions are merely 15-yard penalties and which ones warrant ejections, fines and suspension.

And yes, the players will need to be educated. Goodell said that league officials will engage on a campaign that includes visits to all 32 teams over the next 90 days. Maybe that’s why the competition committee didn’t table the issue until it was ready to address the other work needing to be done on the rule.

According to Albert Breer of, Griffin has been invited to the 2018 NFL Draft and plans to attend.

The Central Florida linebacker was already one of the best stories in this year’s talent pool, after he overcame a birth defect which cost him a hand to become one of the top players in college football.

But after initially not getting an invite to Indianapolis, he proceeded to take the combine by storm.

Meanwhile, the position of some owners categorizing peaceful protests as unfit political statements for the NFL stage rings hollow when juxtaposed against the manner in which the league wraps itself in the flag.

And they shouldn’t forget: Fans, and viewers, come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

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.

Lack of signed franchise tender doesn’t matter for Jarvis Landry

Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry has yet to physically sign his $15.9 million franchise tender. Some have suggested that his failure to do so could mean that he won’t. Which could mean that the Dolphins could rescind it.

That won’t be happening.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Landry has formally accepted the tender, regardless of whether he has physically added his signature to the bottom of the offer. (He hasn’t signed it, per the source.) As a result, the Dolphins consider it to be accepted, making the $15.9 million offer fully guaranteed and (perhaps more importantly) allowing the contract to be traded.

“I think the [pay cut] number was part of it, but also the conversation I had in the meeting,” Nelson said. “I met with Brian and had a discussion because I had to get a feel for not just the pay cut but what their plans were going forward. After that meeting, there wasn’t, I don’t think, much desire there. I think with the combination of both, we decided what was best for myself and my family [just] as they decided what was best for them and the Packers .”

The Vikings have opted to keep Kevin McDermott as their long snapper as he is progressing well from shoulder surgery, via Tomasson.

Overbaugh replaced the injured McDermott in Week 17 and ed both postseason games. Those are the only career games Overbaugh has ed.

McDermott has spent the past three seasons as the team’s long snapper.

Former New York Giants linebacker and Montana State star Corey Widmer has declined his nomination to the Montana Football Hall of Fame, saying the sport “destroyed my life.”

Widmer said after numerous concussions he fears he suffers from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease. He has depression, memory problems, suffers from mood swings and seeks to isolate himself. Recently, he said, his thumb has started twitching.
