Rams, Steelers taking very different approaches with high-profile holdouts

At a time when the Steelers repeatedly are squeezing running back Le'Veon Bell to show up for training camp, the Rams are applying a much different approach to defensive tackle Aaron Donald. Appearing on Thursday's PFT Live, Rams G.M. Les Snead declined to characterize Donald's expectations for a new contract, praised his ability to disrupt an offensive line even during OTA sessions, and said nothing about Donald's ability to be ready for the season based on his decision to boycott practices and preseason games. Donald, unlike Bell, is under contract.

Transfer News: Chelsea Misses Out On £50 Million Target, Manchester United Bringing Back Fan Favorite

The last two weeks of the summer transfer window will be frantic for Antonio Conte more than any other manager as he looks for new signings to galvanize the underperforming Premier League champion. Despite Chelsea spending £150 million (about $193 million) this summer, the Italian coach is desperately in search of new additions to his squad. While Tottenham hasn't made a signing this window, it has also retained its players, something Chelsea hasn't managed-Conte lost Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa is believed to be leaving.

New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles has said he has no time for BS. While he was referencing the continued bickering between Sheldon Richardson and former Jets receiver Brandon Marshall at the time, the same message could be applied to his response to a fight and sloppy play at practice on Monday.

Philip Rivers' sharp throw found Antonio Gates in the middle of the end zone, and StubHub Center shook with cheers from fans who were thrilled to see this familiar teamwork in a brand-new setting. Although the rest of this preseason opener belonged to the Seattle Seahawks, at least the Los Angeles Chargers opened their new home with a classic San Diego connection. Rivers threw a 5-yard scoring pass to Gates on the opening drive of the Chargers' first preseason game since relocation, but the Seahawks' backups otherwise dominated a 48-17 victory Sunday night.

Calvin Johnson could easily secure free agency, if he wants to

Setting aside for now the fact that teams reaching out to receiver Calvin Johnson about a potential return to football are tampering, there's a specific procedure that would allow Johnson to get back to football any time he wants. Specifically, he simply has to notify the Commissioner that Johnson will be ending his retirement and reporting to the Lions. Another way to handle the issue would entail teams interested in Johnson reaching out to negotiate a face-saving trade for the Lions, which would allow them to get a little something in exchange for letting Johnson go.

If a typical NHL coach listed perks of the gig, "great job security" wouldn't make the cut very often. With that in mind, let's take a step back and just admire the persistence of Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice. It might be hard to believe, but Maurice has been employed as an NHL head coach consistently since 1995-96.

Knicks do the obvious, expected: Pick up 2018-19 option on Kristaps Porzingis

In a surprise to absolutely nobody, the New York Knicks have picked up their 2018-19 option on Kristaps Porzingis. This move seems like a no-brainer, but remember just a few months back Phil Jackson was running the show and needlessly getting in a pissing match with Porzingis. After this season, the Knicks can and will offer a max extension to Porzingis.

Arsenal started brilliantly and struck just two minutes in as the Gunners pinged the ball around the box perfectly. Just two minutes later, Leicester City hit back.

Report: Jeff Loria agrees to sell the Marlins to Derek Jeter and Bruce Sherman for $1.2 billion
Report: Jeff Loria agrees to sell the Marlins to Derek Jeter and Bruce Sherman for $1.2 billion

The Miami Herald reports that Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has agreed to sell the team for $1.2 billion to a group led by New York businessman Bruce Sherman and, more interestingly for baseball fans, former Yankees star Derek Jeter. While Jeter has gotten all of the press until now, Sherman, a venture capitalist, is the money man and will be the "control person," which is MLB's term for the owner who makes all the decisions for the club. Jeter, while wealthy by baseball player standards, could not carry the majority of cost (he's reported to be contributing $25 million to the deal).

Diplomacy to defuse India, China border crisis slams into a wall: sources

By Sanjeev Miglani NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's diplomatic efforts to end a seven-week military standoff with China have hit a roadblock, people briefed on the talks said, prompting Chinese state-run media to trumpet rhetoric of "unavoidable countermeasures" on the unmarked border. China has insisted that India unilaterally withdraw its troops from the remote Doklam plateau claimed by both Beijing and Indian ally Bhutan. In the low-key diplomatic maneuvers that took place outside the public eye, the Chinese countered with an offer to move back 100 meters (328 ft), so long as they received clearance from top government officials.

Habs have available cap space to help remedy pressing roster needs

It's been a particularly interesting time for Marc Bergevin as general manager of the Montreal Canadiens. It really snowballed in June of 2016 with the P.K. Subban trade and the fallout from that, and has continued this offseason with a trade for Jonathan Drouin to help bring additional scoring to Montreal, the loss of Alex Radulov and Andrei Markov, and signing goalie Carey Price to an eight-year, $84 million contract extension that kicks in for the 2018-19 season. Losing Radulov takes an offensively gifted player out of the lineup, while the club paid a massive amount of money to keep Price in Montreal through 2026.
