You would think that a player would feel some sense of job security after a season in which he reeled in 82 catches for over 1,300 yards and nine touchdowns en route to a Pro Bowl appearance. That is apparently not the case for DeSean Jackson in Philadelphia, who has recently said that he is concerned about his future with the Eagles. The wide receiver hasn't been given any assurances that his job is safe, and Mike Florio thinks that this is a situation where media speculation has evolved into an actual issue.

Many teams are continuing the offseason trend of giving veteran quarterbacks backup-like money and Mike Florio says there’s a simple solution as to why organizations see the need to do this.
With a crop of uncertain talent at the QB position set to come off the board in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Florio believes teams are preemptively acquiring a security blanket in case the passer they select isn’t quite ready to take over the helm immediately.
Guys like Teddy Bridgewater fit the bill after a less-than-stellar pro day workout and Florio says the question marks that lay ahead could be enough to scare teams into showing an established QB the money they seek.

Colts owner Jim Irsay was arrested Sunday evening on DUI and possession charges, leaving the NFL to figure out how to address the situation. Commissioner Roger Goodell has made no secret of his willingness to aggressively punish players for similar off-field misconduct, so it would be a real double standard if Irsay isn’t punished just as aggressively. Mike Florio wonders how much you fine someone who is worth over $1 billion in order to get his attention.

Midway through the third quarter you had to like how the Rockets were playing against the Heat in Miami.
Tied 92-92, the Rockets got what seemed like their 5,347th floater in the lane of the night, this time it was Chandler Parsons over Chris Andersen. The Rockets players did not fear the Heat shot blockers all night. At the other end, Chris Bosh missed a clean look at a three then Birdman missed a clean tip, Dwight Howard pulled in the rebound and threw the outlet to James Harden who pushed it up one-on-three, then pulled up and knocked down a three. It was is 97-92 Rockets.
Everything went south for Houston soon after.
Miami closed the game on a 15-0 run as they executed and attacked, while the Rockets took poor shots and seemed when a couple bad calls didn’t go their way fell apart. The result was a 113-104 Heat victory.
Miami needed this win, having lost five of six coming in and even with the win they are three games back of Indiana for the top spot in the West. Now the Heat get three of four against sub-.500 teams and a chance to try and chase down that record.

CBS basketball analyst Seth Davis joined The Dan Patrick Show to talk about the NCAA Tournament bracket that was revealed on Sunday night. While Davis mentioned his surprise at Louisville's No. 4 seed and his indifference toward SMU missing the cut, his biggest takeaway from Selection Sunday was the depth of talent in the Midwest region. With three of last year's Final Four teams in Wichita State, Michigan and Louisville, plus perennial powers Duke and Kentucky, Davis says he's "never seen a region like this year's Midwest."
