UPDATES & NEWS
As it turns out, D-backs general manager Kevin Towers and manager Kirk Gibson will not be entering the final year of the contracts in 2014.
The team on Monday said that it had extended the contracts of both men. The length of the extensions as well as the financial terms were not disclosed.
Contract length for managers and front office personal are meaningless. If a team needs to make a change than they will, no matter when that date is. It's nice that both men have some level of comfort, but if this team goes 5-20 in April then it would likely be adios Mr. Gibson. It's just the nature of the beast.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Johnny Manziel reported for the first day of voluntary workouts Monday.
Manziel has completed his rehab program and is looking to be the team's starting quarterback in 2015. There has been speculation about the Browns drafting a quarterback in this draft, but we will have to wait and see. Their selections in the draft will give us a glimpse of what the organization thinks about Manziel, as well as how they feel about him as their starting quarterback. The draft will be a big indicator to us, and to Johnny Football, about his status in Cleveland. Analysis: Colby Conway
