(Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images) The Chargers nabbed a franchise quarterback in last year’s draft, but what will Los Angeles do to help Justin Herbert in this year’s event? Justin Herbert’s emergence as a potential superstar quarterback wasn’t enough to keep Anthony Lynn employed, but it did make Los Angeles an intriguing landing spot for new coach Brandon Staley. This offseason will all be about surrounding Herbert with the type of talent required to push the Chargers back into the playoffs. Apri’s draft will be crucial for both the short and long-term future of the franchise. They need to fortify their roster with young talent that can join Herbert to become the team’s young corps.

That is, if NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg’s ‘ideal‘ Traded Player Exception (TPE) scenario plays out to fruition.

    CHELSEA are on a mission to land the best young British stars as Brexit has led to restrictions on overseas recruitment. Frank Lampard's side have been busy developing relationships around the UK with junior teams including Newcastle City Juniors. 2Frank Lampard's side will turn their attention to signing more British playersCredit: Getty Images - Getty English clubs will no longer be allowed to sign players from abroad until they turn 18 due to Britain's Brexit deal. A points-based system will also be introduced to cap the number of foreign players that are able to play in the UK. But Chelsea - who are ninth in the Premier League table - have come up with an ingenious way to beat the system. Lampard's team have been in contact with junior teams across the UK in order to secure the best up-and-coming stars. The Blues have created a link...
    The Las Vegas Raiders might have a name to watch for this offseason in joining their staff.  Wade Phillips might not have enjoyed his time as head coach, but he made one heck of a defensive coordinator. The 44-year veteran recently served under Sean McVay in Los Angeles, helping the young coach transform into the next great name thanks to quality defensive play. Phillips also has been vital in helping young defensive talent flourish. The Raiders have used bundles of early draft picks in the past three seasons to rebuild the unit, including defensive end Clelin Ferrell, linebacker Tanner Muse, safety Johnathan Abram and cornerbacks Damon Arnette and Trayvon Mullen. The franchise also has a promising pass rusher and slot defender in former fourth-rounders Maxx Crosby and Amik Robertson. The Rams finished with winning seasons in each year Phillips was on staff. Should the Raiders miss the postseason for the third time under...
    Moments after Chase Elliott won the NASCAR Cup Series title, Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick expressed that many people in the organization thought he was ‘nuts’ when he signed a 14-year-old Elliott. However, Hendrick believed in his decision and in Chase’s abilities. Recently, Hendrick reminisced about the incident and explained how Chase Elliott’s signing happened back in the day. Last week, at the Snowball Derby, Elliott drove the No. 9 super late model owned by former NASCAR Cup Series team owner James Finch. Finch was the man who first noticed Elliott years ago and felt his talents should not go unnoticed by anyone. He then approached Hendrick. “James Finch asked me if I had seen Chase Elliott drive. And I said ‘no,’ and he told me I needed to. Because he’s whipping all these guys on pavement,” Hendrick said about the incident. Nov 8, 2020; Avondale, Arizona, USA; NASCAR driver...
    Getty Talen Horton-Tucker of the Lakers. Last season, Talen Horton-Tucker appeared in just six games, four of which came in the NBA’s bubble restart in Orlando, after the Lakers had already sealed the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. He hit double figures in three of those four bubble games, averaging 8.5 points and shooting 48.3% from the field. Throughout last summer, word kept bubbling up from Lakers camp that Horton-Tucker was improving rapidly and was one of the most impressive Lakers in Florida. On Friday, making his preseason debut, Tucker was not exactly efficient but showed why he has the potential to be a two-way threat—he scored 19 points on 6-for-17 shooting from the field, adding nine rebounds and three steals.

    Dana White has been promoting MMA as a worldwide sport since the inception of the UFC. He has never avoided putting non-American talent in top positions inside the promotion. Anderson Silva, Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and many others are examples of this. White envisioned the UFC as a global brand and has achieved it by showing diversity in his roster. There are 11 champions in the UFC, and Stipe Miocic is the only American on that list. As a result, we can say that Dana White is always looking to see which international sensation will climb the UFC rankings. However, it looks like he has found someone to possibly come in 10-15 years from now. #africa pic.twitter.com/fEs8o3E6O0 — danawhite (@danawhite) November 25, 2020 White shared a video of a kid in Lagos, Nigeria.

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Shaka Smart should have everything he needs this season with a Texas roster full of experience and brawny, young talent. Can he finally deliver the results the Longhorns have been expecting after years of misfires? Smart enters his sixth season at Texas, where he is 90-81. While his previous teams included three first-round NBA draft picks, the Longhorns haven’t won an NCAA Tournament game in his tenure and missed the tournament twice, not counting the pandemic-shortened season this past spring. His only winning season in the Big 12 was his first. That track record saw the temperature rising under Smart until the pandemic sent everyone home early. Yet despite perennial underachievement, Smart and the Longhorns head into the season ranked No. 19 in the AP Top 25. That’s because they return a roster full of seniors, deep experience in the backcourt led by guard Matt Coleman...

    Getty Los Angeles Lakers GM Rob Pelinka. Over the Los Angeles Lakers‘ history, they’ve been able to attract the best talent in the NBA. Team legends like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Pau Gasol and more came to the team after having a lot of success elsewhere. The Lakers brand is very strong and players like to play for them. However, it has led to the team doing a poor job of developing homegrown talent over the years. Not a single player in the Lakers’ usual starting five was drafted by the team. A lot of that is because they traded away all of their best homegrown talent in the Anthony Davis trade. However, Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd thinks it goes deeper than that. He bashed Los Angeles for not developing young players. “We know the Celtics and the Heat are well run and develop players,” Cowherd...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz enters his fifth season with the Philadelphia Eagles as the unquestioned leader of a team that had its greatest success without him. He’s taking charge. “For Carson, it’s just a matter of running the show, running the offense, running the team,” coach Doug Pederson said. “He knows how to play this game. He plays it just like a professional. He’s aggressive.” Perhaps too aggressive sometimes. Wentz rebounded from two injury-shortened seasons to start 16 games last year. He led a depleted offense to four straight wins down the stretch and an NFC East title. But he suffered a concussion in the first quarter of a wild-card loss to Seattle, so he is still seeking his first career playoff win. Backup Nick Foles stepped in when Wentz injured his knee in 2017 and led the Eagles to the franchise’s first Super Bowl title. Foles filled...
    Getty John Harbaugh celebrates with the Ravens. The Baltimore Ravens are one of the top teams in the NFL due in no small part to the way they have constructed their roster in recent seasons. Once again, the Ravens are getting some huge love for how that has played out. Recently, Football Outsiders along with ESPN took a look at ranking the rosters in the league with talent 25 and under. Perhaps not surprisingly, Scott Spratt found that Baltimore is in elite standing moving forward for their future in 2020 and beyond. In terms of the reasoning why, the big conclusion was it goes beyond the quarterback position for the Ravens, who are stacked in a multitude of ways on offense and defense now thanks to how they’ve built the team. Here’s a look at what Spratt wrote about the team’s standing: “But the Ravens don’t need Jackson...

    In a recent interview, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle took some time to name the younger wrestlers he believes to have the most potential to become big stars in the company in the coming years. Speaking on the most recent episode of Instinct Culture by Denise Salcedo, Angle talked about how he sees the current WWE landscape three months after the company released him as part of COVID-19-related budget cuts. While he touched extensively on the low ratings of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown and how he believes empty-arena shows have led to this drop in viewership, he admitted he still enjoys the product and has a number of favorite wrestlers he likes watching. You can watch Angle’s complete interview here. “I love Drew McIntyre, Aleister Black, Andrade,” Angle said at the 19-minute mark of the interview. “Some of the talents coming up through NXT.

(Photo by Brace Hemmelgarn/Minnesota Twins/Getty Images) The White Sox have the best young core in the MLB. Coming into the 2020 MLB season, expectations were high for the Chicago White Sox.

    JURGEN KLOPP has revealed he would love to see a team full of Scousers playing for Liverpool within the next decade. And he points to Sadio Mane, 28, as the perfect example of how the club’s boys can turn into men at Anfield - no matter where they come from. 2Jurgen Klopp hopes a stream of academy kids can follow Trent Alexander-Arnold into the Liverpool first-teamCredit: PA:Press Association Mane, of course, is neither Liverpool born nor did he come up through the club’s academy having arrived for £30million from Southampton four years ago.

    Did the Yankees make a mistake leaving one youth slugger off their summer camp roster? By: Alexander Wilson July 2, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Yankees recently named their summer camp roster, composed of a variety of different players, including ones that have experience and others that are young to the system and are trying to earn a spot on the active roster.

    Another WWE announcer has revealed she has coronavirus — and that she’s now gotten it twice. After Renee Young revealed she had COVID-19, Kayla Braxton, a reporter on “SmackDown,” shared her diagnosis Thursday morning. “Was keeping it quiet but since everyone else is sharing, I feel like it is my responsibility to share this PSA: YOU CAN GET COVID-19 MORE THAN ONCE!” Braxton wrote on Twitter. “I had it back in early March and then thought I was invincible after I recovered.
