    Devin Taylor could prove to be 'great signing' at bargain price for Giants

    Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer Close Follow on Twitter EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Signing defensive end Devin Taylor could turn out to be a monumental bargain for the New York Giants. Or the former Detroit Lion could fail to make the roster this season. Given what Taylor’s contract dictates, it could go either way. He signed a minimum-salary, one-year deal on May 25 that has a cash value of $855,000.

    Rabalais: Great upsets? LSU needs one (actually two) of those against mighty Oregon State

    OMAHA, Neb. — Great upsets are the lifeblood of the sports we love. The U.S. Olympic Hockey team toppling the Soviet Union in the Miracle on Ice. Buster Douglas knocking out Mike Tyson. Villanova dethroning Georgetown. Stony Brook beating LSU. Heck, even the New England Patriots can lay claim to one of sports all-time stunners. When they won their first Super Bowl, at the Superdome in February 2002, they were a huge underdog to the then St. Louis Rams. Then they pulled off a 20-17 shocker for the ages, long before David Tyree’s immaculate catch helped the New York Giants shock the unbeaten Patriots 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII. The Rams back then were called the “Greatest Show on Turf” because of
