Suspended CB Brandon Browner plans to sue the NFL next week, hopes to be cleared to enter free agency.
The NFL suspended Browner indefinitely in December for violating the league's substance abuse policy. His lawyer will ask the court to allow Browner to become a free agent on March 11, which would have happened had Browner not been suspended. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Tigers are in discussions with Jordan Zimmermann.
There is nothing definite to this point, but reports have surfaced that Jordan Zimmermann is in "serious" discussions with the Tigers. Zimmermann would form a nice one-two punch with Justin Verlander atop the rotation in Detroit. Zimmermann was 13-10 in 2015 with a 3.66 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 201 2/3 innings pitched.
