The Rams seem to be very interested in Odell Beckham Jr.
Los Angeles has contacted the Giants about a possible trade for the receiver, the New York Daily News reported, citing league sources.
According to the report, the Giants want a first-round pick in exchange for Beckham, along with other incentives.
It’s no surprise, given Watson and his fellow Clemson Tiger Hopkins found immediate chemistry last season. While Watson will let others decide if they are the best quarterback-wideout duo in the league, he knows there’s a lot more to come from their connection.
“It’s the type of person and player he is. He’s very relatable and you can feel connected with him once you meet him,” Watson said. “He’s easygoing but he wants to be the best and bring the best out of you. We just keep working on everything.”
The tag for Lawrence is worth $17.1 million and both sides have until July 16 to work out a long-term deal. If not, Lawrence will play under the tag for the 2018 season.
Despite recording 58 total tackles and 14.5 sacks in 2017, Lawrence also has a history of injury. He underwent back surgeries in both 2016 and 2017 and hasn’t had an offseason without some sort of injury in four years.
“(My contract) is not my focus right now,” Lawrence said. “My focus right now is getting better and being the best I can be once that season rolls around.”
Colorado fill-in centerfielder Mike Tauchman did his best to help out Freeland in the sixth, jumping into the wall as he tried to pull back Markakis’ shot. The crash, however, knocked Tauchman on his back and catapulted his glove over the wall.
There was some momentary confusion afterward.
Plate umpire Ed Hickox waited a moment after the contact to see if Givens held onto the ball. When he saw the ball still in Givens’ glove, Hickox called Gregorius out, prompting the Yankees to challenge the call, arguing Givens had illegally blocked Gregorius’ path to score.
“I thought he did block the plate before he got there. We certainly thought that,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “I understand that’s a difficult call to make in that situation.
“It didn’t go our way.”
