Bashaud Breeland re-signs with Chiefs after meeting a surprisingly underwhelming free agent market

Bashaud Breeland re-signs with Chiefs after meeting a surprisingly underwhelming free agent marketThis is a key re-addition for the reigning NFL champs Bashaud Breeland has decided to stay with the team he helped become Super Bowl champs for the first time in five decades. The veteran cornerback became an unrestricted free agent in 2020, but he remained unsigned through the first several waves of the annual frenzy -- becoming one of the more underrated free agent talents still on the market. That's no longer the case though, with Breeland reportedly having re-signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on a one-year deal worth $4.5 million, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN. This is Breeland's second contract with the team after fulfilling a one-year deal signed in 2019, and one that saw him play in every single game for the Chiefs. It's also a pay raise when considering he earned roughly $2 million last season, but after having gone on to deliver two interceptions in the regular season..

20 years ago: When F1 was “like qualifying from start to finish”

20 years ago: When F1 was “like qualifying from start to finish”The 2000 San Marino Grand Prix was a prime example of how tense refuelling-era Formula 1 could be, as Ferrari’s Michael Schumacher overcame pole-sitter Mika Hakkinen of McLaren to keep his title bid firmly on the right track. After the race, Schumacher said: “It was good fun, like qualifying from start to finish.” Hakkinen rocketed away at the start, as Schumacher suffered huge wheelspin and veered across the nose of David Coulthard’s McLaren, which allowed Ferrari teammate Rubens Barrichello up to third at the expense of Coulthard, with Jacques Villeneuve’s BAR at the head of the chasing pack. The race developed into two distinct McLaren v Ferrari duels. Hakkinen and Schumacher pitted together at the first round of stops, with Schumacher taking on more fuel. Hakkinen pitted earlier for his second pit visit, and Schumacher’s rapid pace in the intervening laps meant he rejoined well ahead of Hakkinen – who complained of hi..

Ex-Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski wants to continue NFL career: ‘I’m not ready to just hang it up’

Ex-Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski wants to continue NFL career: 'I'm not ready to just hang it up'Gostkowski spent the last 14 seasons with New England When Tom Brady decided to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency, that bumped veteran kicker Stephen Gostkowski to being the longest-tenured player on the New England Patriots. That title was held briefly, however, after the club released the 36-year-old in late March. That put an end to Gostkowski's 14-season run with New England after the franchise selected him in the 2006 draft. He was placed on injured reserve following Week 4 of the 2019 campaign and underwent season-ending hip surgery not too long after. That injury is now in the rearview mirror for Gostokowski, who is currently looking at a rather uncertain future in the NFL. What is certain, however, is the fact that he wants to continue playing in the league somewhere and believes he still has a lot to offer a franchise. "I'm not read..

MLB 2020 season simulation: Slump continues for last-place Astros; three players ink contract extensionsHere's how the regular season's second week played out in Out of the Park 21 Major League Baseball was supposed to launch the 2020 regular season last month, on March 26. The spread of the novel coronavirus, however, forced MLB to delay Opening Day to some unknowable future date that is dependent on the effectiveness of the containment strategies imposed across the country.

Along the way, we'll be providing updates on what's happening in our fictional league, similar to what we did on Opening Day. With that in mind, here are the would-be standings through action on Thursday, and five developments to be mindful of from the week that was (and wasn't). OOTP 1.

2020 NFL Draft: Lions involved in discussions to trade back from No. 3 pick, per reportA team looking to land a top QB prospect could be eyeing Detroit's top selection The Detroit Lions might end up having their pick of the litter when it comes to premier non-quarterback prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, however, the team is already engaged in discussions about potentially trading back from the third overall pick. "Teams wanting to move up have been receptive," Rapoport added, indicating Detroit is the one initiating talks to swap picks. It's no surprise the Lions are reportedly looking to auction off their No. 3 pick. Detroit recently acquired additional third- and fifth-round picks by trading Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay to the Philadelphia Eagles, but with a number of teams picking behind them potentially in the market for a top quarterback prospect, they could be attempting to leverage their position for a sizable haul.
