Hamilton: 'Very close Ferrari are bluffing'

However, he appeared to back off the throttle just before he crossed the line on his two fastest laps, suggesting the Ferrari's ultimate pace is even quicker than the already-impressive headline time suggests.

Texans trade quarterback Brock Osweiler to Cleveland Browns

Texans trade quarterback Brock Osweiler to Cleveland Browns

The Browns now assume the remainder of Osweiler's deal, according to the report. Signed to a four-year, $72 million contract by Houston last March, Osweiler was downright disastrous in his only season with the team. The Broncos were in hot pursuit of Romo, and if the Texans wanted him, they had to move fast. The Texans have a lot of pieces in place to contend in the AFC, but whiffed on Osweiler when they gave him that massive contract. Read More

Fed not fussed about tough Indian Wells draw

Reigning champion Djokovic, who has won the event in the past three years, is also set for a rematch with Nick Kyrgios in the fourth round, with the winner potentially facing the victor of a Federer-Nadal clash.

Chicago Bears: Mike Glennon is In, Cutler Might Soon Be Out

National Football League teams can start negotiating with free agents starting Tuesday. The Jets' newly-hired quarterbacks coach, Jeremy Bates, held the same position when Cutler played for the Broncos and Bears. In fairness to the Bears front office, if this move doesn't work out, they'll be able to move on next season (it's not like they've guaranteed the whole contract). Read More

Cardinals to sign Antoine Bethea

Cardinals to sign Antoine Bethea

He had a great 2014, but things slipped from there following an injury in 2015. But they want to land some players to build around and after a 1-15 season, Browns fans don't want to spend the offseason taking on more losses. The signing of Jefferson to pair with Eric Weddle will form one of the better safety duos in the NFL. Bethea has a Bruce Arians connection as they both were members of the 2012 Indianapolis Colts team. Read More

Bears to release Jay Cutler

Bears to release Jay Cutler

One blockbuster trade, 23,444 passing yards, 154 touchdowns, 109 interceptions, and all of the "Smoking Jay" memes later, and the eight-year Cutler era has come to a close. Cutler, who turns 33 in April, was the 11th overall pick in the first round by the Broncos in 2006. Now, this deal isn't likely going to end up being quite as bad as Brock Osweiler's, because it is a shorter deal that looks to have less guaranteed money, but it's certainly the frontrunner to be the biggest loss of value ...

West Indies v England: Watch highlights from the third ODI

West Indies v England: Watch highlights from the third ODI

This has been a great practice series for England ahead of the Champions Trophy in June. The West Indies have not been that bad either in the home matches with Jonathan Carter and Jason Mohammed making an impact. He was given out lbw on 93 off Kraigg Brathwaite but asked for a video review which showed the ball would have missed off stump.

Which team will Tony Romo be playing for next season?

Which team will Tony Romo be playing for next season?

The Broncos may be favorites and there are reports stating that it is the team Romo wants to join if he parts ways with the Cowboys. Tony Romo's career as a Dallas Cowboy is riding into the sunset. That said , it does immediately up the intrigue in 2017 free agency as a few teams will scramble for his services. If Siemian, a guy with one year of experience, is the best option, the Jets may just be better off targeting prospects like Mitch Trubisky, Deshaun Watson and DeShone Kizer ... Read More

Ex-Paris mayor backing Macron in French presidential race

At present, she is expected to be one of the two top finishers and the first round of voting, which is to say she will likely make it into the second round. Most polls put her ahead of other candidates in the April 23 first round but those same surveys consistently see her losing the runoff.

Mike Glennon Reportedly Expected to Sign with Bears, Potential Contract Surfaces

They opted instead to entrust the offense to Glennon. The 2017 National Football League free agency tampering period gets going at 9 a.m. PT today, and with it will be a major push for a fairly limited quarterback market. Winston and Mariota will come close to doubling Glennon's contract when their first deal is up. Sure, anything's possible, but the liklihood is low so the Bears had better hedge their bet. Read More
