Two months after suffering a torn ligament in his neck, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has not been fully cleared by the team's medical staff.
Lee, who has been rehabbing and working out at Valley Ranch since the season ended, said the neck has improved and he is feeling healthy. The Cowboys open their official offseason program on April 21.
Lee is vital to the Cowboys' defense. The club is weak on that side of the football, and if Lee is in anyway compromised, the unit could fall to absolutely pathetic levels. Expectations at this point suggest that Lee has a good chance to be just fine.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Blue Jays signed LHP J.A. Happ to a three-year deal.
On the surface, this doesn't look like a good deal for the Blue Jays. While they're desperately in need of a starter, and Happ fits the bill as...well, a starter, this is an overpay. $12 million a year for a 33-year old pitcher who had a 3.61 ERA last year, and last had a qualified season with an ERA under 4.00 in 2007, doesn't seem like the smartest of investments. Happ does have upside, in fact he had a 1.85 ERA and 2.19 FIP (63.1 innings) in Toronto last year in Pittsburgh last year, after being traded to the team from the Mariners, but a 4.64 ERA and 4.12 FIP in 108.2 prior innings with Seattle is less than encouraging. This deal could turn out well, but it is much more likely that it is a bust for the Blue Jays. Analysis: Ben Diamond
