Chargers sign Jaylen Watkins
The Eagles didn’t want Jaylen Watkins, at least not at a certain price, but he has found a home.
The Chargers announced they had signed the former Eagles cornerback, who was not tendered an offer as a restricted free agent.
The Chargers could use him at either safety or corner, and they need some depth there after letting Tre Boston walk in free agency.
Cody Reed (L), fewer than 1 percent, Cincinnati Reds at Philadelphia Phillies: Reed is making his 2018 debut and since he may be sent back to Triple-A at its conclusion, you know he wants to make a positive impression. After all, the injury-riddled Reds rotation will no doubt need some reinforcements — and probably sooner, rather than later. The allure is the unknown, combined with a decent strikeout pedigree. Granted, Reed displayed terrible control last season in a short stint in the bigs, but now, just one week from his 25th birthday, his composure should be better.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed to TMZ that it is “looking into whether or not a violation occurred in this incident.”
Florida has bans on catching certain types of sharks, and restrictions on catching other types, and Miller could face legal consequences if his fishing trip violated state law.
To the extent that the system needs to be changed, that won’t happen until the next CBA arrives. Even then, it’s unlikely that the players will be inclined collectively to make a concession that would compel teams to give young players more money sooner, even if a return a system that allows star players to leverage big rookie deals into bigger second deals would potentially stretch the market at the various positions, giving more players a chance to get more in their own negotiations.
They examined the sharing of inside information, deriving that “effective prevention of insider trading requires coordination between sports leagues and betting operators.”
The conclusion was straightforward.
“We conclude (alongside many other observers) that due to the rigor of Nevada’s regulatory practices, the state’s approach actually provides sports leagues with their best opportunity to protect themselves when it comes to the all-important issue of integrity,” the report said.
