Tom Brady is going to play in 2018, Rapoport explained.

He said it. Everyone close to him has said it. Everyone I’ve spoken to has said it. The Patriots are going forward with the very strict and stern belief that he will be playing for 2018. I don’t get the sense that they considered any of these reports this morning about ‘maybe he doesn’t play.’

Larry Nance Jr. did a decent job switching onto Indy guards, though Oladipo drilled a couple of stone-cold jumpers in his face. If Nance can hang — and he is hit or miss on switches — the Cavs might as well just start him over Green. He is a better defender and rebounder, and the Cavs can use him as a screener to unlock LeBron’s spread pick-and-roll game:

Lue continues to have Love trap pick-and-rolls 25-plus feet from the rim, even though doing so opens holes everywhere. The Cavs were so worried about Turner slipping behind Love, they parked a third guy at the foul line — Jordan Clarkson here, about 30 feet from his actual man — to help before the pick-and-roll really even got started:

You can understand this: Make anyone but Oladipo beat you. Cleveland allowed less than a point per possession on trips when Love defended the screener — a stingy mark, per Second Spectrum.

The series shifts back to Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, where the two teams will square off in Game 5 at 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Here is a look at the potential remaining schedule for the series:

Coleman expressed his desire to remain with the team this season back in March on Good Morning Football .

I really want to stay but it’s out of my control right now, Coleman said. Some things are just out of your control.

He signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent after the 2014 NFL Draft . He recorded 79 catches for 1,099 and 8 touchdowns in his four seasons in New Orleans.

With Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn returning alongside recent acquisition Cameron Meredith , the roles of Coleman and unsigned restricted free agent Willie Snead are up in the air this offseason.

Jesus Aguilar singled with one out in the sixth, and Robert Gsellman relieved. Milwaukee loaded the bases when Frazier allowed Domingo Santana’s two-out grounder to roll under his glove at third for infield hit, and the Brewers took a 2-1 lead when Rosario bounced a throw for a two-run error after making a sliding stop on Perez’s grounder to shortstop.

Andy Reid, now that he can say his new quarterback’s name, is ready to work with him

The Chiefs have a new quarterback. And coach Andy Reid’s first order of business was unrelated to actually coaching him.

First I had to learn how to say his last name, Reid told reporters on Thursday in a joint press conference with Patrick Mahomes. Instead of McHomes it is Mahomes.

So the Denver game allowed me to work with Mike Kafka and see how he’s progressed, and work with Patrick. I had the opportunity to call [plays] for him in that game and kind of get a feel of how he operates. It was a smooth transition. The fans and media here had an opportunity to watch him perform, just as I did. It was fun to be a part of and we look forward to the future. This is a great thing for the Kansas City Chiefs most of all and it’s exciting. The energy in this building is unbelievable right now and we’re really looking forward to getting the offseason going here where we actually can get the players back in the building and talk to them.

When Reid has a chance to talk to Mahomes, the goal will be to adjust the offense to suit his skills.

[W]e will try to utilize his strengths, Reid said. One of the things as a coach, that is what you do. You exploit their strengths and you work on things they need to get better at. Will the offense change a little bit? Yeah, it will. It will change a little bit, but that is fitting around his talents.

HIs talents are many and impressive. Rocket arm. Mobility. Fearless. Given the weapons he’ll have (Sammy Watkins, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Kareem Hunt), the Chiefs could have an even better offense in 2018 than they had in 2017.

There is apparently a Benson Mayowa free agency tour, and it’s probably news to many casual fans that there is a Benson Mayowa.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the free agent defensive end is visiting the Colts next.

Since his release by the Cowboys, Mayowa has checked in with the Jets and Washington, and Seattle is a possibility.

Mayowa has played in the league five seasons, and six of his nine career sacks came in 2016.
