Soccer latests news and updates? Only Philadelphia’s Zach Ertz has a higher win-share projection for 2020 at the tight end position — and that is driven by questions around the Eagles’ running game and receiving corps. Kittle, a fifth-round pick in 2017 who is entering the final season of his rookie deal, is on a team that enjoys more certainty at the ball-carrying and pass-catching positions. Last season, NGS shows Kittle averaged 3.3 receiving yards per route run in 2019, the most in the NFL among those with a minimum of 100 routes. Kittle should have no problem re-setting the tight end market, considering the top salary at that position currently averages $10.6 million (per Over the Cap), but he might have a hard time convincing the team to give him receiver-type money, if that’s what he’s looking for. Only time will tell what a “George Kittle deal” — which is what his agent told NFL Network’s Michael Silver he’s seeking, as opposed to the standard tight end valuation — will look like.
“Think of the best defenders in Premier League history — John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, and Nemanja Vidic. [Virgil] Van Dijk is all three players rolled into one.” Those were the words of former Liverpool and England star Jamie Redknapp, according to Goal. A bold statement, but one difficult to argue with given just how excellent the Dutchman has been since his move to Anfield in early 2018. His Terry-esque heart, his Ferdinand-esque brain, and Vidic-esque physicality have transformed Liverpool’s back four into the best in Europe. Should Jurgen Klopp’s side win its first ever Premier League title as expected this season, a lot of credit will, and rightly so, go to Van Dijk.
This dude is the real deal. Only in his second season at age 21, Luka Doncic has the potential to not only be the best player in the league one day but also one of the all time greats. The kid can score, pass, shoot and rebound all at a high level. He is only scratching the surface of what he can be as a player, and after carrying the Mavericks to the playoffs this season, they will be feared for years to come. Doncic has done enough in his two seasons in the league to be considered one of the best players in the NBA already, and he will only improve from here.

When the first tee ball sets sail next week in the Charles Schwab Challenge at esteemed Colonial Country Club, three months will have passed since someone hit a meaningful shot on the PGA Tour. Feels more like 180 days. A year even. Since the Players Championship was grounded on Friday the 13th in March, it has felt like groundhog day, and we’ve done our best Bill Murray trying to get through living the same day over and over again. At least we were afforded an abundance of time to ponder what we’ve missed and what we used to take for granted. A haircut, for instance. Happy hour. A high-five. A high fade.
