While Le’Veon Bell remains a holdout from the Steelers’ offseason program after the team placed the franchise tag on him for a second consecutive season, DeMarcus Lawrence signed his franchise tag within hours of receiving it. Why, the Cowboys defensive end was asked?
Cause I’m not everybody else, Lawrence said. I’m DeMarcus. DeMarcus does what DeMarcus want to do.
Lawrence, who is due to make $17.143 million under the tag, still wants a long-term deal. The Cowboys are working on extensions for Lawrence and offensive guard Zack Martin.

To me, we failed, Adams said. We were 5-11, not good enough and it’s never going to be good enough for us. That’s not our standard. We’re onto a new year and we just started from day one to get better each and every day.
Taylor was also asked about the report, but noted that a Foles bid would have predated his arrival in Cleveland and therefore really doesn’t affect me.
Kevin Bryant: The Americans series finale reminded me of your recent column on the Celtics: Rooting for the bad guys never seemed so right.
Vac: Hmmm … the Celtics as Cold-War Communists … I can live with that! I loved the way the show wrapped up. And the one scene (if you saw it, you know the one I mean) was just elite TV at its finest.
It was a spectacular save all right, perhaps to be remembered as the series-changing event that kick-started the Capitals to their first Stanley Cup championship.
But only recency bias (or in this case, immediacy bias) can account for folks calling Braden Holtby’s lunging stick save on Alex Tuch with two minutes remaining in Wednesday’s match in Las Vegas the greatest in the history of the finals, no matter its degree of impossibility.
