The biggest concern for the running back is whether he can stay healthy.

Fortunately for Hyde, he proved in 2017 that he was able to pull off an entire season in the starting lineup — even despite some on-and-off hip and concussion issues. The bad news is that his very long list of injuries (for someone only in the league a few years) is admittedly concerning.

During his time with the Buckeyes, Hyde only missed two games with a knee sprain, but that would end up being just the tip of the iceberg. The back missed the final two games of his rookie season due to ankle and back sprains, was sidelined in Week 5 of the 2015 season with a fractured foot, and then a combination of a concussion, shoulder sprain, and MCL tear kept him out for various games throughout the 2016 season. Despite a host of bad news that year, Hyde’s MCL tear didn’t require surgery, at least. The running back ended up finishing both the 2015 and 2016 seasons on the Niners’ IR list.

Hyde may have missed three games in 2016, but he still amassed a career-high 988 rushing yards off of 217 carries. He also finished the year with 1,151 total offensive yards good for nine total touchdowns (another career high). His injuries were certainly a factor in deciding what kind of contract to sign the running back to, but his production still made the deal worth it for the Browns.

Robinson doesn’t appear to have similar issues.

Alshon Jeffery left after one franchise tag, and Robinson’s situation is complicated by the ACL tear, but it was a surprise the Jaguars didn’t franchise their star wideout, let alone sign him to an extension.

Maybe the Jaguars know something we don’t, and the Bears will regret their decision, but Robinson is one of the highest-upside players in free agency in recent memory.

For a team that let Jeffery pursue new pastures and replaced him with the combo of Markus Wheaton, Kendall Wright and Dontrelle Inman, Robinson is a legitimate No.

1 wideout as a simultaneous safety valve and deep target for Mitchell Trubisky.

Robinson’s contract calls for him to make $42 million over three years, which is an excellent deal.

Here’s what the Sam Bradford signing means to the Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals will take a chance in free agency, and intend to bring in quarterback Sam Bradford, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. But can Bradford really be the long-term answer at quarterback the team needs? Or even a short-term one?

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Bradford didn’t come cheap and will make $20 million for the 2018 season with an option for another $20 million in 2019. The team also added Mike Glennon, according to Peter Schrager.

Bradford hit free agency along with former quarterback teammates Teddy Bridgewater and Case Keenum. The Vikings decided they wanted to go in a different direction at the quarterback position, and by that, I mean that Minnesota wanted in on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes action.

Minnesota is reportedly moving forward with Cousins as the team’s quarterback. It’ll be pricey, but the Vikings haven’t shied away from taking big swings at the position.

Bradford was one of those swings when he was acquired in a huge trade prior to the 2016 season. But giving Cousins a fully guaranteed deal worth $28 million per year is a new level of risk, and could haunt the team if it’s a whiff.

But ultimately, losing Bradford is no sweat off the Vikings’ back after the team did just fine without him in 2017.

“Stay tuned,” Suh said in a measured voice while looking into the camera. “There’s going to be some exciting news going on.”

Suh not only gets to abandon the sinking ship otherwise known as the Miami Dolphins. The defensive tackle’s imminent release, which was first reported several hours later by ESPN, means Suh soon will be receiving another big-money check elsewhere after leaving South Florida having collected $60 million in a three-year span.

Stanton and Judge were the only two players to hit more than 50 home runs last season. Along with Sanchez (33 HRs), Grigorius (25 HRs) and a full season of Greg Bird (9 HRs), YES could showcase a modern day’s Murderer’s Row.

“We know we’re very fortunate but we’re incredibly excited about the upcoming season and the years to come,” YES president Jon Litner told Sporting News. “We know we’re sitting on something that’s a rocket ship. We’re counting down to spring training and the regular season.”

Like Mantle before them, noted Litner, the sports world will be waiting and watching to see if Judge and Stanton can actually hit a ball out of Yankee Stadium. Judge came close last season with some 450-foot blasts.

The Cardinals were a team that Cousins was linked to early on.

With Carson Palmer retiring at the end of last season, the Cardinals have a void at quarterback that needs to be filled. Furthermore, the Cardinals may be an intriguing destination for competitive reasons. The Cardinals finished 8-8 after losing Johnson for the year early in the season. With the Seahawks seemingly blowing everything up, next season could be a competition between the Rams and a dark horse contender (although we should never call Jimmy Garoppolo a dark horse).

The Minnesota Vikings are expected to undergo some significant changes on the offensive side of the ball this NFL offseason. Aside from their obvious quarterback situation, the Vikings must also address their depth at running back. Their bid for quarterback Kirk Cousins is expected to get a bit pricey. As a result, Minnesota is reportedly expected to ask running back Latavius Murray to take a pay cut for the 2018 NFL season, according to Shawn Zobel of The Sideline Pass: Vikings are expected to ask RB Latavius Murray to take a pay cut, and if he refuses, word is the team will release him.

Murray is scheduled to make $5.15 million in base w/ a $6.35 million cap hit Murray’s tenure with the Vikings got off to a slow start after seeing little action to begin the 2017 NFL season.

The same trend held true at other books. told SportsLine that Seattle’s odds could drop from 22/1 all the way to 30/1 after the Seahawks complete their purge of veterans in an effort to reshape an aging roster that failed to make the playoffs last year for the first time since 2011. Sherman, who saves Seattle $11 million in cap room, was a big piece of the puzzle. Star defensive lineman Michael Bennett was also shipped to Philadelphia earlier this week in a cost-cutting move. Veteran cornerback Jeremy Lane had the same fate as Sherman on Friday, and defensive end Cliff Avril could be released shortly as well, which would save Seattle an additional $7 million.

These moves end the Legion of Boom era in Seattle that was marked by an elite defense and a Russell Wilson-led offense that appeared in two Super Bowls, winning one. The Seahawks made the playoffs five times in a six-year span. Wilson remains a dynamic star under center and Seattle hopes to build around him, and a younger defense, to return to the postseason in 2018 and make another run at a title.

Friday’s trade leaves 2017 fifth-round pick Nathan Peterman as the only quarterback under contract for the Bills.

In a quarterback-heavy draft class, the Colts are sitting pretty at No. 3. With Andrew Luck still in the fold ( and hopefully healthy ), the Colts are in a position to take the best player available at No. 3. They’re also in a position where they can engineer a trade with a quarterback-needy team in order to acquire more draft picks that can be used to fill out the many holes on their roster.

The Colts can be flexible. That’s the luxury Luck affords them. Take, for instance, what Colts general manager Chris Ballard recently told FS1’s Colin Cowherd. Ballard is embracing the flexibility of his position,? acknowledging that he’ll keep his phone line open down to the very last minute ?in hopes that someone will make an offer he can’t refuse.

Will Brinson’s last mock draft here at CBS Sports has something similar playing out ?with the Broncos trading up to No. 3 to take USC quarterback Sam Darnold and the Colts still landing defensive end Bradley Chubb at No. 5.? But if they do stay put at No. 3, Ballard will be looking for “the biggest difference maker,” which really doesn’t rule out anyone. “And that’s what we’re looking for — we want the biggest difference maker we can find,” Ballard said. “And, look: we’re going to be open too, now; we’re going to be smart and the do the best thing for the team. So if we get a chance to move back, and we think that’s the best thing to do, then that’s what we’ll do.”

Taylor, 28, compiled a 23-20 record in 43 starts for the Bills since 2015. After he won the Bills’ starting quarterback competition in 2015 and made the Pro Bowl, Taylor’s production declined in each of the past two seasons.

He averaged 6.66 yards per pass attempt and threw for 14 touchdowns in 2017, short of his career highs set in 2015 of 8.0 yards per attempt and 20 touchdowns. He also compiled an 89.2 passer rating and a 56.4 Total QBR, down from his career-high 99.4 passer rating and 65.3 Total QBR in 2015.

Landry probably won’t be able to match the five-year, $82.5 million extension Mike Evans signed earlier on Friday, but his representation knows the Browns will be desperate to hold on to a player they hope will represent the new, competitive Browns. They could franchise Landry next year and pay him $19.2 million, but it wouldn’t be shocking to see a five-year, $75 million extension hit the books for Landry before the season begins.

Saquon Barkley has been picking up steam as the new favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft .

The addition of Taylor may add some fuel to that fire, but it wouldn’t be smart for the Browns to let the move change their plans.

No matter what you think about the idea of taking a running back No. 1 overall, the Browns still need to add a young quarterback.

It’s still possible Cleveland could go with Barkley with the No. 1 pick, but the Browns shouldn’t let the addition of Taylor sway them in either direction.

In the majors, the kind of contact just wasn’t there: Crawford made hard contact with only 14.3 percent of his batted balls last season, which would have been the lowest in the majors if he had enough plate appearances to qualify: worse than noodle-armed Billy Hamilton and Dee Gordon. The power potential is there, but Crawford needs to capitalize on it. Once he does, he’ll become an even more dangerous player: pitchers will pitch around him, and he’ll register even more walks.

If Crawford breaks out, the Phillies will have another franchise key to build around, even if he doesn’t put up numbers like Rhys Hoskins — but by playing such a high-value position, he won’t need to in order provide plenty of value.

Crawford’s impact can’t be understated for a Phillies team close to contention in a weak NL East. Don’t be surprised to see him and Hoskins leading the Phillies to the playoffs in a couple seasons.

“I felt a cramp,” Baez said, via “After I passed first base, [my leg] went back to normal. When I stopped, I felt the cramp. Obviously, [manager Joe Maddon] didn’t want me to stay in the game. I’m completely fine, 100 percent. I got some treatment. The [athletic] trainers were all over it, and everything is fine.”

Baez, who batted .273/.317/.480 last season while playing exceptional defense, could be back in the lineup as soon as Saturday.

“I haven’t been drinking a lot of water,” Baez said. “I drink water during the workouts, but outside of the workout, it’s also important, and I haven’t been drinking a lot of water.”

First off, congratulations on recently breaking Hideo Nomo’s record and becoming the youngest player inducted into the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame. How did you find out and what was your reaction?

HIDEKI MATSUI: Thank you very much. I actually received a phone from the Japanese Hall of Fame directly and they notified me of induction.

Javier Baez injury update: Cubs star dealing with hamstring tightness

Cubs second baseman Javier Baez left Thursday’s spring training game against the Padres with a hamstring injury.

Baez pulled up after belting a double in the second inning but said after the game the injury isn’t serious.

Was this something you expected? Is there a lot of debate when it comes to the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame like there is in America?

I had no expectations at all. I had heard through the media that I was eligible for the Hall of Fame. That was the extent. I really had no expectations. As far as the debate, it’s something that’s really beyond my understanding.

You were obviously born and grew up in Japan, you played there for 10 years, you’re a star there. But you’ve been living in New York City and Connecticut with your wife and son. Why did you decide to live here and not back home in Japan?

Is Taylor the team’s quarterback of the future? No.

He is an adequate starter who comes at a relatively cheap cost. Taylor can serve as a bridge while the Browns find a quarterback to eventually take over and be the face of the franchise.

Years from now, the team’s decision at quarterback will likely be the most important move the franchise made in the 2018 offseason. It would be a mistake to let Taylor be the reason the Browns got their second or third choice at the position instead of their first.

The temptation to take Barkley is probably heightened by adding Taylor, but Cleveland would be wise to identify the quarterback it likes most in the draft class and ensure that he lands with the Browns.

This question is in reference to the Braves reportedly asking former All-Star Andruw Jones to mentor the 20-year-old Acu?a in the ways of being a big-leaguer — and, more specifically, the ways of being a Brave.

NBA trade rumors: Pistons, Bulls express interest in Jazz’s Rodney Hood

Rodney Hood is set to be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, but with his name emerging in trade talks, it might not be Utah that is bidding to retain his services this summer.

In the first season since losing All-Star Gordon Hayward to free agency, Hood has averaged 16.7 points per game for the Jazz; his scoring is up four points from his average of 12.7 in the 2016-17 season. In addition to increased scoring, Hood is shooting a career-high 38.6 percent from 3-point range this season. Hood’s production has come at a relatively affordable price, as he’s making $2.3 million in the final year of his rookie deal.

Hayward’s departure has forced Utah to enter into a slight rebuilding mode. A draft-day trade resulted in the Jazz selecting stellar rookie Donovan Mitchell with the 13th overall pick. Mitchell has led all rookies in scoring with 19.2 points per game this season. Behind the play of Mitchell and Hood, the Jazz find themselves ahead of the rebuilding curve at 21-28.

Griffin is second on the Clippers’ all-time scoring list (10,863) and third in rebounds (4,686) in 504 games with the franchise. While expectations have ebbed a bit in recent years as Griffin has battled injuries — he hasn’t played more than 67 games since 2013-14 — he’ll be expected to be the savior in Detroit, where the Pistons entered Tuesday at No. 9 in the Eastern Conference with a 22-26 record.

“Now I’m ready for the next chapter, getting to work and helping the Detroit Pistons make a run in the Eastern Conference,” Griffin wrote.

“Our team, when they get confident, they can get on a real good run. We’ve done it before,” Gulutzan added. “Every little step is a big step for us.”

The Flames took control in an opening period in which they outshot Buffalo 17-6.

Who will be baseball’s best player for the next five years?

The best player in baseball over the past five years has been Mike Trout. And if I can go ahead and give something away, I expect that the best player in baseball over the next five years will be Mike Trout. I’m thinking in terms of wins above replacement, or WAR, which is the simplest way to distill overall value into a single number. Sure, WAR has its problems, but it has everything included except the intangibles. I’ll leave measuring intangibles to somebody else.

I should note that this is independent of contract status. This is an article about the best players, not the players most valuable to their teams, which is a different question. There are certain players it pains me to leave out: My five honorable mentions are Jose Ramirez, Chris Sale, Mookie Betts, Nolan Arenado and Ozzie Albies. Those five extremely valuable players narrowly missed the top 10.

Darvish varied his speeds against the Los Angeles Dodgers from 95 mph all the way down to 73 mph as he said he used four pitches in his first game since the World Series last fall: fastballs, curves, sliders and changeups. Both his walks came in the first inning, as did two wild pitches — though in between he struck out the side. He retired the Dodgers in order in his second inning of work.

Darvish said he wanted to make sure he didn’t hit any of his former teammates, while Cubs closer Brandon Morrow also indicated he backed off a little in his first appearance this spring. Both he and Darvish pitched in Game 7 of the World Series for Los Angeles last season. On Tuesday, Morrow threw an inning, giving up two hits.

“Did everything I wanted to do,” Morrow said afterward. “I was 95/98 mph without really trying to step on the gas. That’s a good sign.”

Cubs infielder/outfielder Ben Zobrist also made his spring debut after dealing with a back issue in camp. He went 0-for-3. But it was Darvish who got the most attention.

The Cubs signed him to a six-year, $126 million deal after he struggled in the World Series. Questions about tipping pitches in Game 7 followed him throughout the offseason, and considering the opponent on Tuesday, it came up again. He was asked if it was something he was working on.

The NFL’s five best second-contract sleepers

During the past few years, rising caps and carryovers from previous eras have mostly mitigated the problem of the NFL team that spends too much in free agency. Just ask how the Jaguars are feeling about springing for corner A.J. Bouye and end Calais Campbell, or how happy the Rams were with tackle Andrew Whitworth.

Teams are more apt than ever to get what they pay for, as long as they aren’t wishcasting their tall, big-armed quarterback fantasies on mediocrity.

I’ve tried to hang with Pietrangelo during his extended slump, but it’s time to start letting him slide down the rankings. After an electric start to the campaign with 13 points in 13 games during the month of October, Pietrangelo has struggled to maintain fantasy relevance. He has only two power-play points since Dec. 1 and has even ceded power-play position to Vince Dunn on the first unit. Perhaps an injection of a new winger at the trade deadline can reinvigorate the Blues’ offense, but I won’t be holding my breath.

He originally joined the Panthers as a free agent in 2015, leading the team with seven interceptions. He had only four interceptions in 2016 and none last season when he was named a team captain for the first time.

Saquon Barkley is living up to high expectations at the combine. Here are the top prospects with the type of athleticism to turn heads during this week’s workouts.

Cardinals RB David Johnson. It’s not an accident that Johnson led the NFL with 2,118 total yards and 20 touchdowns in 2016, before missing almost all of last season with a wrist injury. Johnson’s lower-body power was on full display during the 2015 combine, when he posted a 41.5-inch vert, tied for third best among running backs since 2012.

Georgia RB Sony Michel. There are exceptions to explosive athletes at running back having good vertical jumps (Leonard Fournette posted only a 28-inch vertical jump last year), but Alvin Kamara (39.5), Kareem Hunt (36.5) and Christian McCaffrey (37.5) had three of the best verts of all the RBs at the 2017 combine. I’m interested to see if Michel’s workout results match his terrific tape.

The Eagles damned the Patriots’ final Super Bowl drive with good kickoff coverage

There are two gadget plays you probably remember from the Super Bowl. One was the now immortalized Philly Special. The other is the drop by Tom Brady on his own reception attempt.

But there was a third attempted by New England in the game, and while it was only a minor disaster in the grand scheme, it got the Pats’ final drive off to a rather inauspicious start.

As with everything the Patriots do, it’s about exploiting tendencies. Philadelphia kicked off nine times in the game. Six of them went for touchbacks.

Slater’s referring to this when it comes to leverage. Look at the acres of space on the backside.

Maybe New England had seen the way Philly covered kicks during the bye week and put this play in the bag of tricks just in case.

There are acres of space because the Eagles’ coverage team is keyed on Lewis returning the ball to his right. Had the Patriots sprung the trick on this earlier kick, it probably would have worked. But this might have been the play they noticed Philadelphia’s tendency to overplay a kickoff and lose its leverage.

Police chief William Baker spoke to the media Tuesday morning and confirmed local and state police were investigating a break-in at Gronkowski’s home, but would not comment on the items listed as missing.

“There were items stolen. We’re not going to release the nature of the items stolen. Obviously the people who committed the theft know what was stolen. It’s an investigative advantage for us to know that as well and not share it with the public, so I won’t have any further comment on that.”

Gronkowski has not commented publicly on the break-in, but reports out of Foxborough say law enforcement spent much of Monday night at the home gathering evidence.
