More information continues to come out on the Chicago Bears front office, and it does not paint a pretty picture of the organization.
One rival NFL executive from a regular playoff contender told CBS Sports’s Jason La Canfora that coach John Fox is “fuming” about being left out of discussions surrounding the Mitchell Trubisky trade, and his relationship with general manager Ryan Pace is “really bad.”
“We don’t know what the hell they were doing,”
Ryan Leaf is in the process of trying to repair his image, and the approach he is taking is clearly one that involves self-reflection.
Leaf, whose life went downhill quickly after he was taken with the No. 2 overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, spoke with ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” for a feature that aired over the weekend. He also wrote a powerful first-person letter to his younger self for The Players’ Tribune.
Leaf did and said similar things back in 2011, but he ended
The Boston Celtics got off to a rough start against the Washington Wizards in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Sunday, but no one had a tougher time than Isaiah Thomas — in the dental department at least.
Midway through the first quarter, Thomas had one of his front teeth knocked out. It happened on a play where he was trying to steal the ball from Wizards forward Otto Porter Jr. and was elbowed in the face. Thomas calmly picked the tooth up off the floor and soldiered on.
The NFL career of Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory appears to be in serious jeopardy, but he has yet to lose the support of his boss.
Over the weekend, TMZ reported that Gregory recently failed yet another drug test, which was supposedly the seventh time he tested positive since declaring for the NFL Draft back in 2015. Gregory is already suspended for the entire 2017 season, yet Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not convinced the 24-year-old is still using drugs.
“I would be very sk
Chad Kelly became Mr. Irrelevant when he was drafted by the Denver Broncos with the 253rd overall pick in the NFL Draft, but he may have ended up being Mr. Undrafted Free Agent if not for the support of his uncle.
Kelly, who had his invitation from the NFL Combine rescinded because of off-field issues, is the nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly. Before the Broncos drafted Chad on Saturday, John Elway called Jim to get his opinion.
“I called his uncle, and he said, ‘He’
The Buffalo Bills announced on Sunday that they have dismissed general manager Doug Whaley. Owners Terry and Kim Pegula said in a statement that the decision was theirs alone and that they are looking forward to hiring their first GM since they took over the team.
Would Scot McCloughan make sense as a replacement? NFL reporter Benjamin Albright said the rumors are already popping up.

Anthony Joshua is not afraid of anyone.
The heavyweight improved to 19-0 after an impressive win over reigning WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday in London. Joshua dropped Klitschko once in the 5th and then twice more in the 11th before the fight was stopped. He also was knocked down in the 6th.
Joshua has continued his impressive KO streak as he has won all of his fights by KO. He is poised to take on some of the best heavyweights in the world and is willing to fight anyo
Albert Pujols mocked Texas Rangers pitcher Chi Chi Gonzalez after Saturday’s 6-3 loss in Arlington.
During the top of the 4th inning, Pujols was facing Yu Darvish with an 0-1 count when the Rangers pitcher buzzed him with a pitch up and in. Pujols ducked out of the way but had words with some in the opposing dugout after his at-bat, including Gonzalez.
After the game, Pujols called Gonzalez “Chi Chi Rodriguez,” who was a famous golfer.
Albert Pujols: "Chi Chi Rodriguez was p
Major changes in the Buffalo Bills’ front office are expected to come, possibly on Sunday, according to a report.
CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported on Saturday that he hears a major shakeup with the Bills could be coming.

Jalen Robinette went undrafted this weekend, and a change in the Air Force Academy’s policy had a big reason to do with that.
Robinette is the Air Force’s all-time leader in receiving yards and was projected as a potential mid-round pick. He had been training and preparing for the draft, but then he got some awful news on Thursday night.
The Air Force changed its policy and decided not to allow athletes the chance to defer their two years of active duty to pursue a professional spor
Jim Harbaugh has taken his Michigan Wolverines to Europe for a team building and culturally enriching trip. The experience has been so positive that he would like to do something similar next year.
Harbaugh, whose team is in Rome, told MLive.com’s Nick Baumgardner that he wants to go to South Africa or Brazil next year.
“We’ll get together as a team and decide, but I’d really like to go to Cape Town or Johannesburg,” he said. “One of those two.”
No one expected Doublelift no go back to Team Liquid but it’s already official, DL has re-united with Team SoloMid. The man that Liquid brought in to “save the split” is now gone and leaves a massive void in the TL bot lane. The lack of an AD Carry along with questions at mid and support leave Team Liquid in an interesting spot. They’ve already parted ways with Adrian leaving Matt as the only support. Piglet was very hit or miss in his time in the mid lane…
John Wall more than exceeded his promise to a few VIPs in Atlanta on Friday night.
Wall’s Wizards were in town looking to close out the Hawks in their first-round playoff series. Also at the game were some celebrities, like Julio Jones of the Falcons and rappers Gucci Mane and Quavo.
Late in the game, Wall could be seen saying something to Jones:

The rookie class of the 2017 Spring Split was one of the best we’ve seen in recent memory. In North America, Contractz was named rookie of the split and helped his team reach yet another NA final coming up just short to TSM. Akaadian also showed off his carry potential in the Echo Fox jungle and missed out on the rookie of the split award in NA by 3 points. For Europe, Xerxe took down the trophy as the aggressive and spontaneous jungler for the runner-up Unicorns of Love. He was then follo
Going into the MVP reveal for the NA LCS, there were four names in the discussion. Hauntzer of TSM, Bjergsen of TSM, Arrow of Phoenix1 and Jensen of Cloud9. Regardless of who won, it would be difficult to argue against it as all four players had outstanding spring splits. Nonetheless the favorite going into the reveal was Team SoloMid’s top laner Hauntzer.
During the NA LCS finals, it was announced that Phoenix1 AD Carry, Arrow was the winner. In his first split in North America he proved
The Orlando Magic have reportedly zeroed in on David Griffin as the man they want to run their basketball operations department.
Griffin is currently the general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers, but his contract is set to expire. According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, the Magic are planning to offer to make him the president of their basketball operations department. The two sides can begin negotiating a deal after the Cavs’ season concludes.
Cleveland has not ruled out giving Griff
Jimmy Butler has heard his name come up in trade rumors dating back to last offseason, and that chatter is almost certain to continue this summer. With the Chicago Bulls having been eliminated from the playoffs after losing four straight games to the Boston Celtics, it’s fair to wonder if Butler will encourage the team to move him.
When asked on Friday night if he will be seeking clarity about his future from Bulls management in the coming days, Butler danced around the subject. And if yo
The Dallas Cowboys used both their second- and third-round picks on cornerbacks in the NFL Draft Friday night, which has led to rumblings that Orlando Scandrick could be on the trading block.
After the Cowboys selected Colorado’s Chidobe Awuzie with the 60th overall pick, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that the Cowboys were trying to trade Scandrick for a third-round pick.
Sources: The #Cowboys are shopping veteran CB Orlando Scandrick. As the third-round is set to begin… that woul...
If Taco Charlton wants to take advantage of his unique name, he landed in the right spot. The former Michigan star was taken by the Dallas Cowboys with the 28th overall pick in the NFL Draft, and he’s looking forward to immersing himself in Texas culture.
Could some sort of taco endorsement deal be in Charlton’s immediate future? Apparently companies have already been calling.
