Fashion police - Worst-dressed NFL draft picks of all time

From Brett Favre's cuffed jorts to a whole lot of shiny shirts and suits, the NFL draft has had its fair share of fashion fails. Who will make the list this year?

  • Alex Rodriguez nearly laughed when Pete Rose complimented Derek Jeter

    Alex Rodriguez cannot stop his face from making that look when Pete Rose starts complimenting Derek Jeter. Kevin Burkhardt, Alex Rodriguez, Pete Rose, and Frank Thomas have been providing interesting commentary before and after the games, with A-Rod in particular standing out as a guy with deep baseball knowledge and a thoughtful approach. Of course, when you sit A-Rod and his thoughtful approach next to Pete Rose, king of the hot take, you’re bound to get a few strange and uncomfortable moments.

  • Why does Henrik Lundqvist start slow? (Trending Topics)

    The Rangers defeated the Islanders 5-3. It was hard not to notice Henrik Lundqvist having another rough outing on Wednesday night. Certainly, expecting Lundqvist to stay below .900 on his save percentage is a fool’s errand, but on some level, you don’t like to see a team expected to have a decent amount of problems squandering what has been a solid start to the season, possession-wise.

  • MotorSportsTalk’s Predictions: United States GP

    Formula 1 rolls into Austin, Texas this weekend for the United States Grand Prix as the fight for the drivers’ championship begins to near its endgame. Nico Rosberg’s ninth victory of the season last time out in Japan saw him move into a 33-point lead at the top of the standings, leaving Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton with a mountain to climb in the closing four races of 2016. Hamilton will be looking to breathe fresh life into his bid for a fourth world title this weekend at the Circuit of The Americas, a track he has won at three times before. Can he impress in front of a packed crowd? Here are our picks for the United States Grand Prix.

  • NFL Puts Giants’ Josh Brown on Paid Suspension Over Domestic Abuse

    The NFL has put New York Giants kicker Josh Brown on the commissioner’s exempt list as league investigators go through a trove of newly released documents in which the player admitted to abusing his then-wife Molly Brown. On Friday afternoon Adolpho Birch, NFL senior vice president of Labor Policy & League Affairs, sent a letter to Brown informing him that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had placed him on the except list on a "limited and temporary basis" while the league reviews the documents released by the King County (Washington) Police Department. Brown will be paid his salary "pursuant to the terms" of his contract, and he may appeal the decision within three days of receiving the letter.

  • Syndergaard and #BanTheWave

    This past season, Noah Syndergaard made it clear on Twitter that he is not a fan of doing the wave during sporting events, often ending his rant with #BanTheWave. Syndergaard first started his stance during a video earlier this season with SNY.TV, during which he shared a variety of helpful tips for Mets fans attending games at Citi Field... However, in a feature Oct. 20 for ESPN.com, Tom Junod says he hated doing the wave until he tried it. "I decided right there that I had to give the wave one more try, with Syndergaard on the hill," he writes. "As we had conspired to start the wave, Syndergaard had given up a leadoff double. Then, as our wave lived and died, he struck out the side. Order had

  • LaMarcus Aldridge says he’s happy with Spurs, doesn’t buy into trade rumors

    The Spurs reportedly could trade LaMarcus Aldridge amidst his unhappiness with taking a backseat to Kawhi Leonard. They deny holding trade talks about Aldridge, but even if they haven’t, that means little. If the bigger concerns about Aldridge’s fit and happiness in San Antonio are rooted in reality, a deal could come together in due time. I doubt the Spurs are rushing to trade him at the first sign of trouble. For his part, Aldridge denies trouble, initial or otherwise. Aldridge on The Jim Rome Show, as transcribed by Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio: “I didn’t buy into it. I haven’t heard anything about it. I talked to Pop (head coach Gregg Popovich) daily and he’s always telling me that I’m

  • Chelsea: Conte expects warm reception for Mourinho; Terry is fit

    The managers are meeting the media ahead of this week’s Premier League matches, and many eyes are trained on one specific match-up. Chelsea and Manchester United meet on Sunday, the first time Jose Mourinho will manage against his old side since his unceremonious exit last winger. Mourinho, of course, led Chelsea to the 2014-15 title only to see a miserable start to the following campaign. He was hired at Manchester United this summer, but Conte thinks Mourinho’s Chelsea laurels have earned him some love from Stamford Bridge. “I have great respect for Mourinho. He deserves a good reception. He was an important man for Chelsea and wrote part of the club’s story.” Conte also touched on Paul Pogba‘s

    Douglas Murray, defenseman for three NHL teams over 518 games, has retired. Two months after injury ended his time in Germany, he joined the Calgary Flames on a tryout for the final month of the season but never played a game. Drafted in the eighth round of the 1999 NHL Draft out of Cornell University, Murray, sometimes known by his nickname of Crankshaft, spent the first eight seasons of his career with the San Jose Sharks.

  • Red Sox sports medicine director says David Ortiz “was essentially playing on stumps”

    David Ortiz had a whale of a final season with the Red Sox. It was so good that he was asked, many, many times, if he was thinking of reversing his retirement decision and coming back for 2017. Ortiz always said no, he was still retiring, occasionally making mention of his aching feet and the physical grind his 40-year-old body was undergoing. We now know just how much of a grind it was. Indeed, it was extreme. We know this because Dan Dyrek, the Red Sox’ coordinator of sports medicine services, tells it to Rob Bradford of WEEI. Dyrek says that the injuries to Ortiz’s feet, which were often referred to as achilles tendon problems, were way, way more complicated than that, affecting every muscle,

    Prior to Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, some were calling for Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell to be benched. Up until that point, Russell had gone hitless in the series, and many wondered whether manager Joe Maddon would be better off leaving him off the lineup card for Game 4. Russell broke out with a three-hit performance in Game 4 that included a big two-run homer.

  • Ex-marketing executive pleads guilty in U.S. bribery probe of FIFA

    Aaron Davidson, former president of the Miami-based unit of Brazilian sports marketing conglomerate Traffic Group, entered his plea in federal court in Brooklyn to charges of racketeering conspiracy and wire fraud conspiracy. Davidson, who also agreed to forfeit $507,900, is one of 42 individuals and entities charged as part of a U.S. investigation that upended Zurich-based FIFA and the soccer world, and one of 18 people and two companies to plead guilty. In court, Davidson, 45, admitted he participated in schemes to direct $14.1 million in bribes to Jeffrey Webb, a former FIFA vice president and president of CONCACAF, the governing body for soccer in North and Central America and the Caribbean.

  • Report: Lakers want to keep Metta World Peace… as assistant coach

    The Lakers must drop two players before the regular season. The four primary candidates: Nick Young, the only one of the four with a guaranteed salary. There was talk of waiving him anyway, but he has seemingly played his way onto the team in the preseason. Yi Jianlian, who has the highest salary of the group. His partially guaranteed, incentive-laden contract makes him an intriguing trade chip. Thomas Robinson, the youngest of the bunch. The 25-year-old might be the best center in a few years of anyone on the Lakers’ roster. Metta World Peace, the oldest player on the team. He turns 37 next month and hasn’t been productive in years. The Lakers face one tough choice. Waiving World Peace should

  • Penguins rally to steal one from Sharks in Cup rematch

    After two periods on Thursday night it looked as if the San Jose Sharks were going to cruise to a win against a banged up Pittsburgh Penguins team in a rematch of last year’s Stanley Cup final. At that point the Penguins were down on the scoreboard, their defensemen were dropping like drummers from Spinal Tap, and the Sharks were in complete control of the game by pretty much every objective measure. In the end, “unexpected” would probably be a good way to describe the Penguins’ come-from-behind 3-2 win given the circumstances. It was made possible thanks to a massive third period rally that saw them score three goals in seven minutes while playing nearly half of the game with only four defensemen against one of the best teams in the league.

  • The five worst trades Brian Cashman ever made

    Brian Cashman has made many great trades, but he’s also made a few mistakes over the course of his career as Yankees general manager. None of them were incredibly costly to the future of the organization, but I bet there are some he’d like to have back if he could. Without a doubt the most misguided trade in the Brian Cashman era of the franchise. I guess we’ll chalk this one up to him being young, inexperienced, and maybe drunk, but it still looks bad in retrospect. Mike Lowell made his major league debut in 1998 as a 24-year-old kid. Unfortunately for him, Scott Brosius was the Yankees’ third baseman, and would be there for the next four years, so Lowell had no place to play. Now, I understand

  • The Tigers will listen to trade offers on anybody

    Earlier this week Tigers GM Al Avila said that his club was going to get “lean” and “efficient” and that their days of spending big money are over. Later in the week Avila said that they would not likely offer a long term contract to outfielder J.D. Martinez, who will become a free agent after the 2017 season. None of those comments necessarily suggested that the Tigers would be conducting a fire sale or anything, and it’s certainly possible to get leaner while still competing. One would assume that the Tigers could cut fat in the middle but still head into battle with their superstars. But that may not be the plan. Buster Olney: Trading those guys would be a pretty big deal. In both senses of

  • Alvarez ridicules McGregor’s cardio program

    After Conor McGregor lost to Nate Diaz at UFC 196, the Irishman became obsessed with cardio training. The training seemed to pay off, as McGregor went five rounds with Diaz in the rematch at UFC 202, beating the ultra-distance runner via majority decision. McGregor has carried that ethos into his headlining bout at UFC 205, which will see the featherweight champion challenge Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt at Madison Square Garden. Alvarez, though, who captured the 155-pound title at UFC Fight Night 90, believes McGregor’s strenuous cardio program is a waste of time. Alvarez is one of the most decorated lightweight fighters of all time, a two-time Bellator champion and now the king of
