Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell confirms Justin Blackmon is done in Jacksonville.
Not sure if Blackmon and Browns wide out Josh Gordon were getting high together which prompted Blackmon's eventually release by the Jaguars, but whatever the reason, and there have been plenty, Blackmon will no longer be a Jag, which prompted the team to draft wide outs Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson. The Jags can not officially release Blackmon until he is reinstated which he will have to apply for before the start of the 2014 season. By releasing Blackmon the team washes their hands of the troubled receiver, who has already been suspended twice for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, and in essence free up a large chunk of money to sign players the hope will take their career much more seriously.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Cubs will recall Addison Russell from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.
Welp, this is a surprise. Russell is arguably a better prospect than Kris Bryant, albeit from more of a real-life than fantasy perspective. He had 11 hits in 37 at-bats at Iowa with a home run and will immediately slot in as the Cubs' everyday second baseman. The Cubs aren't likely to fool around with a prospect of Russell's caliber, so you can expect he'll be in the lineup as long as he's on the 25-man roster. He needs to be owned in all leagues and has the potential to contribute in both the power and speed categories and will qualify at both MI positions. Get excited. Analysis: Spencer Silva
Frankie Hammond signed his exclusive rights free-agent tender.
Although it’s harsh to say, many receivers see their careers take a downfall after going to Kansas City. Alex Smith isn’t capable of helping his star wideouts produce big numbers. Last year was a prime example in that Smith never connected with a wide receiver for a touchdown. Jeremy Maclin should break that this year and put up decent numbers, but he is the only wide receiver in Kansas City that should be drafted. Stay away from Hammond. Analysis: Colby Conway
