Moss excited about RG3′s health

Washington Redskins wide receiver Shannon Moss is pretty excited about Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s progress in coming back from a torn ACL. It’s now been over a year since RG3 suffered a torn ACL in the playoffs for the 2012 season, but his surgically repaired right knee is finally strong enough to where he can practice without wearing a knee brace.

Roach wants Pacquiao to fight Marquez in November

roach444If trainer Freddie Roach gets his way, Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KO’s) will wind up facing 40-year-old Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1, 40 KO’s) in a 5th fight between them next November, if Marquez beats Mike Alvarado on May 17th. Roach wants Pacquiao to get the chance to avenge his 6th round knockout loss to Marquez two years ago. Roach doesn’t care that Marquez is 40 now, and has no interest in fighting Pacquiao ever again. Roach still wants the fight. Continue reading

Jets sign Chris Johnson to 2-year contract

johnson555The New York Jets have taken a gamble and signed former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson to a 2-year contract. The particulars of the deal aren’t yet know other than the fact that the 28-year-old Johnson has signed with the Jets. Johnson rushed for 2,006 yards in the 2009 season for the Titans, but it’s been downhill ever since that time. While Johnson has continued to be a high quality running back, he’s not put up the huge stat that he did in the 2009 season. Continue reading

Pacquiao moved to #3 in pound-for-pound list

pac012345Manny Pacquiao’s 12 round decision win over WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley last Saturday night has pushed Manny up to No.3 on Sports Illustrated’s pound-for-pound list, below #2 Andre Ward and #1 Floyd Mayweather Jr. This is pretty impressive given that Pacquiao was considered to be an over the hill fighter following his back to back defeats at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez and Bradley in 2012. Continue reading

Ellerbe: Floyd has never faced anyone like Maidana

MAIDANA-2017(Photo credit: Stephanie Trapp/Showtime) At today’s tele-conference, WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana, his trainer Robert Garcia, Oscar De La Hoya or Golden Boy Promotions and Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, got a chance to speak the May 3rd Showtime pay-per-view fight between Maidana and Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Giants sign Josh Freeman to 1-year deal

freeman56The New York Giants have signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman to a 1-year contract, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport. This is an interesting move by the Giants, because Freeman played the Giants last season while he was with the Buccaneers and he played very poorly in a game on Monday Night Football last October. The Giants won the game 23-7, and Freeman completed just 20 of 53 passes for 190 yards with 1 interception. Continue reading

Maidana: Everytime I hit Mayweather, I’ll hurt him

WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31 KO’s) feels that he’s going to hurt Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0 26 KO’s) when he faces him next month. Maidana recognizes that he’s going to be out-skilled by Mayweather Jr. in their fight on May 3rd, but Maidana sees his power as being his ace in the hope to bail him out in this fight and lead him to either a knockout victory or a decision.

Maidana beat a fighter similar to Mayweather in his last fight against Adrien Broner, and he feels he’s now ready to duplicate those efforts against the real thing in Mayweather. Continue reading

Gruden impressed with Aaron Murray

murray8ESPN analyst and former NFL coach Jon Gruden was very impressed with Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray after watching him throw the ball while working with him at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports training complete in Orlando, Florida. Gruden wasn’t expecting much from Murray, as he’s coming off a torn ACL that he suffered in Georgia’s 59-17 win over Kentucky last November. Murray had his knee surgically repaired, and he’s roughly half the way through his rehab on his knee. For his workout with Gruden, Murray wore a knee brace to stabilize his knee. Continue reading
