Saints players troll Vikings after blowout loss in NFC championship game

The Saints were clearly still very bitter about their last-second loss to the Vikings last week. During and after the Eagles’ 38-7 beatdown of the Vikings on Sunday night, Saints players, such as Michael Thomas, got in a few jabs on social media.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is doing right by Tony Romo. The question is what comes next as the NFL’s quarterback-needy teams try to fill that position when the league’s signing window opens at 4 p.m. Thursday.

The Cowboys are expected to release Romo on Thursday, according to a person familiar with the situation, confirming several reports. The Cowboys can designate Romo as a post-June 1 release, enabling them to spread the salary cap hit of the move over two seasons instead of one.

LeBeau had been the Titans defensive coordinator the last three seasons and helped the Titans improve from 20th in total defense in 2016 to 13th in 2017.

If LeBeau does retire, it will end a coaching career that began in 1973 as the Eagles special teams coach. After three seasons in Philadelphia, he joined the Packers staff as a defensive backs coach in 1976.

LeBeau rejoined the Bengals in 1997 as the defensive coordinator on Bruce Coslett’s staff. When Coslett resigned in 2000, LeBeau became the head coach. Though considered one of the best defensive coordinators in NFL history, LeBeau was just 12-33 over two-plus seasons as the Bengals head coach. He was fired following the 2002 season and spent on year as the Bills assistant head coach before returning to Pittsburgh.

Paul George to the Cavs trade was closer than we thought

The Cavaliers may have been closer to a Paul George trade than we thought. And thanks to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, Dave McMenamin and Brian Windhorst, we now know exactly what offer was on the table.

The Cavaliers were just moments away from finalizing a three-team deal that would have sent George to Cleveland, Kevin Love to Denver and Gary Harris and other pieces to Indiana, according to ESPN.

Plans were put in place for a call to be arranged between George and Gilbert, an important step before the trade would become final, sources said. The front office began making other plans to complement George as free agency was about to begin.

But then Pritchard, who had been on the conference call when the deal was tentatively agreed to, sent the message that his team was backing out, sources said. There was no deal.

When Fox heard the news, he tweeted a picture of an emoji character with his hands over his face. He was probably disappointed that he and Ball wouldn’t get the chance to go head-to-head on Monday. Fox later deleted the tweet, though.

Ball’s UCLA Bruins and Fox’s Kentucky Wildcats played against each other twice last year. The Bruins won the first meeting, 97-92, in December. Ball racked up 14 points, seven assists, and six boards, but Fox scored 20 points and dished out nine assists. Ball and Fox met again during the NCAA tournament. Kentucky won, 86-75, eliminating UCLA from the tournament. Fox torched Ball, scoring a game-high 39 points to lead Kentucky to victory. Fox said he scored all those points in the Sweet 16 to shut LaVar Ball, Lonzo’s dad, up.
