  • Tim Tebow says his opportunity with Eagles is 'a blessing'
    PHILADELPHIA -- The stage is set for Tim Tebow. If the former Heisman Trophy winner is going to earn a spot on the Philadelphia Eagles roster, he couldn't ask for better circumstances. "I think about it as, what a blessing," Tebow said after Thursday's practice. "What a great opportunity. I work extremely hard every day, try to be the best teammate I can, the best player. Try to make everybody else around me better as well. All of us are just trying to improve." QB Sam Bradford, the other Heisman winner acquired by Eagles coach Chip Kelly this offseason, has not been cleared to take part in team drills. Bradford tore his left anterior cruciate ligament last August. He can take part in limited drills, but not in many of the practice periods. QB Mark Sanchez, Tebow's former New York Jets teammate, is working with the first-team offense. Matt Barkley, Tebow's prime competition for a roster spot, is also in...

Family, Change of scenery or simply - what they feels just might work best for them! Those same laws don't apply!" Peterson later clarified his tweets, saying, "This is nothing against the Vikings.

  • Warriors favorites for title, Vegas says
    The Golden State Warriors remain the favorites to win the NBA title. The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, which made the Warriors the favorites earlier this month, currently have them at 5-12 odds to win it all, with the Cavaliers getting 2-1 odds to hoist the Larry O'Brien Trophy next month. The series starts June 4 in Oakland, California. If it feels like the Warriors are getting too much credit, there's a science to it. "We made the Warriors a six-point favorite in Game 1, then we took the next six games and played it out," said Jeff Sherman, head NBA oddsmaker for the SuperBook. "We take who would be the favorite in each game, by how many points and what the money line would be. We then put individual prices in and it calculates what the series price should be." Despite the fact that sports books in Las Vegas had the Cavaliers as long shots before LeBron James agreed to join the team last summer, there's not much concern over the...
