Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon “is generating little interest,” on the open market even though the team is willing to eat some money on his contract.
Although Papelbon is the best reliever available in the trading market leading up to the trade deadline, the high salary and often high demands are getting in the way of letting a deal go through. He has recently said he will exercise his no-trade clause if sent to a team that will not use his as a closer, which has hurt the Phillies side of things significantly. However in terms of fantasy at least we know he will be a closer the rest of the season, whether with the Phillies or an other organization. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Eagles coach Chip Kelly is still drawing interest from USC.
With the Eagles struggling over the past couple of weeks and likely falling out of contention there has been a lot of talk that Kelly will be out as Head Coach. With the talks about his job in jeopardy comes talks about where he may end up next. It appears that some college teams are interested in his services with USC drawing the most interest with Kelly.
