Blake Bortles Headshot

Blake Bortles said he spent 6 days with throwing coach Tom House in California fine-tuning his mechanics and making a few minor tweaks.

You have to love seeing reports like this especially from a guy coming off a break out season. Bortles is obviously trying to avoid a sophomore slump in 2016. Bortles has also spent time learning from veteran quarterbacks in the league and what has made them so successful. He has a lot of room to improve as he led the league with 18 interceptions last year and completed just 58.6 percent of his passes. Lets see if the hard work paid off.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Headshot

Jets have given Ryan Fitzpatrick “multiple offers” to pick from.

The Jets are really trying here but Fitzpatrick is not playing around. We have seen reports of a three-year, $24-million deal on the table but apparently there is a second option available as well but the details are not known. Fitzpatrick has said that he'll accept a one-year contract for the same $12 million he would earn in 2016 under the three-year offer, but the Jets aren't willing to do that deal. There does not seem to be an end in sight as training camp opens this week.

Jalen Ramsey Headshot

Jalen Ramsey (knee) will be a full go when the team opens camp on Thursday.

This is great news after Ramsey missed most all of the offseason program with a torn meniscus. The Jaguars first-round pick is expected to cover the slot in nickel packages. Jacksonville will be without the services of Aaron Colvin after his four game suspension, so he'll be put right into action. The plan is that Prince Amukamara will replace Ramsey on the outside in sub packages.

Peyton Manning Headshot

After a seven-month investigation, NFL has determined that Peyton Manning did not use HGH nor any other PED.

If you don't remember, Manning was thrown in a report along with several other players by Al Jazeera America back in December. After months of investigating, the NFL determined there was "no credible evidence" the allegations were true. Players like James Harrison, Julius Peppers, Clay Matthews, and the others should feel a sense of relief on Monday and feel like they can move forward in their careers. They had all submitted written statements declaring their innocence to the league office.

Kyle Schwarber Headshot

Cubs GM Theo Epstein made clear that Kyle Schwarber is not available before the trade deadline.

When the Yankees started sniffing around Schwarber, Theo Epstein made it perfectly clear that he was not available. The Yankees and Cubs are finalizing a deal that would send Aroldis Chapman to Chicago for a bunch of prospects. Schwarber will start the 2017 season in a Cubs uniform. He lost most all of his 2016 season following a major left knee injury.

Greg Jennings Headshot

Greg Jennings announced his retirement from the NFL.

You have to love today's athlete and the way they make their statements to the world. We had LeBron make announcements on Snapchat and on Monday, Jennings announced his retirement via a YouTube. The last three years of his career were a mess between Minnesota and Miami, but we will remember the good times for Jennings in Green Bay. He caught 425 passes for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns in his seven seasons with the Packers and helped them win the Super Bowl in 2010. He won't make the Hall of Fame but we are sure Green Bay will honor his contributions.

Alex Bregman Headshot

Alex Bregman will make his highly anticipated major league debut Monday night against the Yankees.

This call up has been rumored for months and we are finally going to see him play in the big leagues on Monday night against the Yankees. A.J. Hinch said he does not know where Bregman will play but he has spent time at shortstop, third base and left field in the minors this season. Bregman had a sweet .306/.406/.580 batting line with 20 homers and seven steals between Double- and Triple-A this season. He should be picked up in any fantasy leagues where he's still available.

Aroldis Chapman Headshot

Yankees are expected to get four players from the Cubs in a trade for Aroldis Chapman.

The Yankees were hard after the Cubs top shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres and they'll get their former prospect Adam Warren (who was traded to Chicago last winter for Starlin Castro). We have heard that the Yankees top brass have signed off on the deal but no one knows why it has not become official yet. There are thoughts that the Cubs are trying to sign Chapman to a pre-trade contract extension because he'll become a free agent five days after the 2016 World Series.

Jordan Zimmermann Headshot

Jordan Zimmermann threw 50 pitches over four innings in a minor league injury rehabilitation start with Triple-A Toledo.

In those 50 pitches, he allowed four hits over four shutout innings the Orioles Triple-A affiliate. Zimmermann struck out two and did not walk anyone. He will need another minor league rehab start before he returns to the Detroit rotation. He has been out of commission since July 2 because of a right neck strain.

Jorge Soler Headshot

Jorge Soler will not be going to Yankees in a trade for Aroldis Chapman.

There have been many conflicting reports about who will be involved in the Chapman trade, but it seems as if Soler will be left out. Soler was expected to be a contributor for the Cubs this season after hitting .262 with 10 HR and 42 RBI last season over 404 plate appearances, but he's been for a good portion year because of a hamstring issue. He's struggled in his brief rehab stint, slashing .154/.267.154 with zero home runs and one RBI over 15 plate appearances but should be back with the Cubs relatively soon.
