49ers traded a conditional 2015 4th-rd pick to Buffalo for WR Stevie Johnson.
This could be a HUGE steal for the 49ers as they now have one of the more impressive wide receiver corps flush with great hands. Johnson brings a fantastic possession-receiver element much in the way Anquan Boldin brought last season and now the team has a wide receiver corps flush with great hands. Adding Johnson to a mix with Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis is going to be a big factor for a team usually known for its run-first mentality and it's going to keep defenses from loading up in the middle and from limiting coverage to just one or two receivers. Now the question remains, can Colin Kaepernick get them the ball? He's going to have to improve his field of vision and learn how to spread it out more if this is going to be a truly elite offense. The potential is certainly there, but he needs to show signs of improvement. The only one who loses out on this deal is second-year receiver Quinton Patton who is now buried even further down the depth chart. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Panthers have no intention of bringing Greg Hardy back next season.
He could possibly be suspended which makes it tough for a team to bring him on board. However, he is phenomenal talent and is a defensive game changer. Is it worth it? Hardy played in one game last year before spending the rest of the season on the commissioner's exempt list. Hardy is young and had 15 sacks in his last full season, but organizations will have to evaluate whether or not that is worth the trouble. Analysis: Colby Conway
Dodgers can not send Alex Guerrero down to the minors without his permission.
This puts the Dodgers in an interesting situation. Due to his contract, he is not allowed to be optioned to the minors after his first season without his permission. Well, he has emphatically stated that he is not going down to the minors. He could be traded or cut by the team at some point. He will work at second base, third base and outfield this spring in an effort to see where he could potentially play in the majors. Analysis: Colby Conway
Randy Foye is in the Nuggets' starting lineup on Sunday.
The Villanova product has been struggling of late and hasn't really stepped up since Arron Afflalo was traded to Portland. In February, he only averaged 5.6 points in roughly 19 minutes per game. Foye can shoot the three ball effectively, but he hasn't shown it lately as he has made only two of his last 16 attempts. Analysis: Colby Conway
