The Braves have agreed to terms with outfielder Jason Heyward on a two-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration.
Heyward has elite skills, but he's soft and he's been beset by continual injuries leading to roller coaster like efforts from month to month for his career. Reports suggest he'll be paid over $13 million over the next two seasons, so the Braves are banking on Heyward becoming the player that we all know he can be - if he can stay on the field.

Bills are expected to release Mario Williams.
It was obvious that he was not fitting into the defensive scheme being employed by Rex Ryan and his staff. At 31 years of age, he still should have some skills left to devote to another team that will utilize his pass rush and tackling abilities. Look for him to catch on with another team if Buffalo decides to cut him loose. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
DeMarcus Ware said that he intends to continue playing.
Ware has been quoted as saying that "he's got a lot of gas left in the tank," so this announcement comes as no huge shock. Playing opposite Von Miller help to revitalize his game, as he snagged 7.5 sacks in 11 regular season games and 3.5 in three post season games, with two of those coming in the Super Bowl last Sunday.
