Cardinals’ Christian Kirk pays restitution, gets charges dropped

Cardinals rookie receiver Christian Kirk has put a legal problem behind him.

The Cardinals drafted Kirk knowing that he had been arrested in February in nearby Scottsdale, Arizona, on a disorderly conduct and property damage charge. Today Kirk had the charges dropped.

Scottsdale city prosecutor Karen Close said Kirk paid restitution and as a result her office dropped the charges.

As free-agent additions go, Omameh signing a three-year, $15 million contract ($5.5 million guaranteed) was oh-by-the-way news in mid-March, coming a day after the Giants lured in left tackle Nate Solder with a $62 million deal. Omameh was brought in to start and this spring he is working with the first team, lining up at right guard, with Flowers to his right and center Brett Jones to his left. John Greco, a 10-year veteran (mostly with the Browns) brought in midway through last season mainly to watch, has worked as the starting left guard, alongside Solder. Rookie Will Hernandez, the highly touted second-round pick, is the second-unit left guard, although he has received snaps with the starters.

Keeping Hernandez behind Greco is likely a decorum move by the coaching staff, not giving Hernandez too much too soon, making sure he earns his spot with the first unit. How the offensive line shakes out in the spring is not necessarily how it turns out in the summer and into the regular season.

Still, the Warriors carry an All-Star array of talent with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, all of whom will be intent on wearing down James.

Golden State’s Curry missed the first six postseason games with a sprained knee, and while he doesn’t look 100 percent and shows occasional rust, he still has enough to remind all that he’s a two-time MVP. When he’s right, every time he shoots, you think it’s good. Right now, not so much. Hill is a steady, non-spectacular but consistent pro. The Cavs pray he hit shots and avoids foul trouble. Behind him are venerable (a nice way of saying old) Jose Calderon and Finals newbie Jordan Clarkson.

He is an All-Star, but Thompson remains under the radar with the galaxy of stars surrounding him on the Warriors. He is one of the game’s premier two-way players, a terrific defender who lights it up offensively with anyone. His size makes him another guy to stick on LeBron.

LeBron James denies being ‘eager’ to see Kyrie Irving traded: ‘Get another source’

LeBron James is ready to clear the airwell, sort of.

There has been plenty of drama surrounding the Cavs and their biggest star since news broke that Kyrie Irving requested a trade out of Cleveland. Irving’s camp reportedly believes James leaked the request, and the relationship between the Cavs and Irving has reached the point where a trade feels almost inevitable. But James is breaking his silence to set the record straight on a few issues.

What you tend to find is when clubs buy a player for large amounts or smallthey will stagger these payments over a course of a contract, Wilson said, via BBC Sport.

Let’s assume PSG pay 200 million for Neymar and he signs a 10-year contractthey will pay 20 million per year to Barcelona. Of course, the selling club has to agree to that length of time.

You expect there to be a decent upfront payment though. When Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Real Madrid from Manchester United for 80m in 2009, the English club demanded the fee was paid in full before it was allowed to happen.

Regarding Neymar, I think you’ll probably see a substantial initial paymentlet’s say 100 millionand a couple of payments afterwards to make the balance.

So, now that it’s established there is a way for both players to move, it boils down to whether or not the two players really want the switch, and if the teams they currently play for are willing to pull the trigger.

Buccaneers sign Nick Folk to compete with Roberto Aguayo

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t given up on young kicker Roberto Aguayo, but they may be hedging their bet by signing veteran kicker Nick Folk Saturday..

The Bucs were widely ridiculed for drafting Aguayo in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft, and they actually traded up into that spot to select the former Florida State kicker. The rookie struggled last season, hitting only 22 of 31 field goal attempts (71 percent), the lowest percentage of any NFL kicker. He made just four of 11 attempts from beyond 40 yards.

The Cubs don’t have a prototypical leadoff hitter, instead they will likely rely on a combination of Schwarber, Ben Zobrist and possibly Albert Almora Jr.

The Rangers (17-20) have now won four straight games, but still have a lot of ground to make up in the AL West behind the Astros. Starting pitching has been a concern for Texas this season, but Andrew Cashner allowed just one run in six innings Friday, lowering his ERA to 2.43 in the process.

Gallo has been a revolution in the power department this season, but he is still hitting just .203 with a brutal 54 strikeouts in 118 at-bats. His heroics were great, but he needs to become more consistent in the long run.
