Arizona’s Rich Rodriguez sued for breach of contract by former agency

Rich Rodriguez is being sued for breach of contract by Creative Artists Agency, according to Kyle Bonagura of ESPN.

The agency used to represent the Arizona head coach and they are claiming Rodriguez owes them $ 230,250 for work they did. According to the lawsuit, CAA negotiated his deals for the Wildcats coaching job and an on-air role with CBS.

CAA is claiming Rodriguez agreed to pay them a percentage of both deals but he ended the partnership in 2015.

"Coach Rodriguez had an 'at-will' agency relationship with CAA that began in 2011," Bennett Speyer, Rodriguez's attorney, said in a statement. "He paid CAA fees in excess of $ 280,000 through 2015, when he terminated the relationship. Rodriguez never entered in to a written contract with CAA, nor did he ever verbally agree to pay fees for any period after 2015."

CAA says Rodriguez still owes them money from before the two sides parted ways.

Former Oklahoma QB Robison lands at FAU

Lane Kiffin had a productive Tuesday.

In addition picking up a transfer from John Franklin III, the Owls also secured former Oklahoma quarterback Chris Robison.

Robison came to Oklahoma as a four-star recruit and the 10th-ranked pocket passer in the 2017 class, but was dismissed by the Sooners earlier this month for violating team rules.

The freshman will be eligible next season after sitting having to sit out the 2017 campaign.

It remains to be seen what the Owls do on the field, but Kiffin has certainly done a good job bringing in talent this offseason.

When I think of workers at social media behemoths Google and Facebook, I get a mental image of people who are far Left on the political spectrum, very politically correct, and more interested in being social justice warriors than just about anything else. I don’t get a mental image of someone who is into prepping, […]

Former Lions LB Levy files grievance against team

Warning: Story contains coarse language

Former Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy has filed an injury grievance against the team, stating that the Lions cleared him a day before his March release even though three other doctors told him his knee hadn't healed.

Levy played in just one game during the 2015 season due to a hip injury, then suffered a knee injury during the opening game of the 2016 campaign that he never overcame. The 30-year-old underwent knee surgery in April after an operation to repair his torn meniscus during the regular season.

"I figured there was something wrong because they passed me on a physical when I couldn't even sit down to a chair or get into a linebacker stance at the time," Levy said to ESPN's Michael Rothstein. "In my mind, I didn't think about the legal contract part of it. I thought, this is fucked up. I can't get into position; how can I pass a physical? I didn't know it was a physical the first time.

“I went in for just a follow-up for my knee, we go through the exam or whatever and I see he puts ‘pass’ on it for the physical. I’m like, ‘OK, this ain’t right.’ So I called my agent and I’m just now learning about the process.”

Levy, currently a free agent, is still waiting for his knee to fully heal before returning to action. The veteran linebacker was amid the best stretch of his career before the injury.

“Just kind of, it’s frustrating, man, because the way I was trending, I just hit a wall and it’s like, I feel like it could have been avoided last year,” Levy said. “I feel like it could have been avoided if I was shut down earlier.

"The cartilage is wearing because my knee was jacked up. Like the cartilage is pretty much gone now because I'm out there, and you're telling me I'm not going to make it worse, it's just a psychological injury. And now I'm here, maybe missing another season because of it. And it's frustrating, man. I was there for a decade and I never complained about any of my injuries."

Levy, who said he no longer trusts NFL doctors, expects to recover by December.

Former Cavs GM explains why Irving wants to be traded

Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin worked closely with and had the trust of Kyrie Irving before he was let go, so there are few who could better explain the apparent rift between the point guard and organization.

Griffin appeared on ESPN's "The Jump" on Monday to provide perspective on why Irving wants to be traded away from the Cavaliers.

"This is a guy who handled the situation exactly like he was supposed to," Griffin said. "He went to Dan Gilbert privately, told him he would be happier somewhere elsewhere.

“The absolute worst thing this guy could have done was pretend to be all-in, and sink the ship from within. Most guys don’t have the courage to do what he did. That’s not youth and ignorance. That’s a little bit more courage than what people gave him credit for.”

Irving played an instrumental role in helping Cleveland attain its first championship in five decades, but overwhelming success doesn't necessarily mean Irving was happy.

Griffin signed Irving to a five-year deal in 2014 to be the featured player for the Cavaliers, only to be usurped soon after by James' homecoming.

"This is a guy who recruited LeBron (James), (Gordon) Hayward, and a host of free agents when he decided to sign and stay in Cleveland," Griffin said. "And all of a sudden, LeBron came back.

“So he was sold a totally different situation than he’s actually in, and he worked very well in, he won a championship in. I see this as him looking for a fit for himself now to take the next step of his career.”

Griffin explains Irving simply wants a chance to test his own abilities, a chance he was denied in 2014. That opportunity simply wasn't available if he continued to share the court with James.

"This is a guy who wants to know how good he can be," Griffin said. "LeBron casts a very large shadow over an organization and most of it is really, really positive. You know you're expected to win a championship.

"But what it doesn't always allow is for a player like Kyrie to test his boundaries and see how good he can really be, and, 'Can I actually be the front man for a team like that?'"

Griffin added: "He just wanted to put himself in a position, I think, where to find out exactly what he has as a 25-year-old entering his prime."

Former All-Star catcher Darren Daulton dies at 55

Former All-Star catcher Darren Daulton, one of the most beloved Philadelphia Phillies players in the club’s history, died Sunday following a four-year battle with brain cancer. He was 55.

"Darren was a true leader of men. The Phillies would not have gone to the 1993 World Series without his leadership," Phillies chairman emeritus Bill Giles said in a statement. "In addition to being an outstanding clubhouse leader, he was also a fighter. He battled through five knee operations to become an All-Star. I really enjoyed watching him for 14 years in uniform. Darren was a super human being. His teammates loved him, I loved him like he was one of my own. In fact, he called me 'Uncle Bill.'"

Daulton was initially diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer called glioblastoma in 2013. Though he announced he was cancer-free in 2015, the Phillies revealed last month that the disease had returned.

Daulton played 14 years in the majors from 1983-97, with the majority of his career being spent in Philadelphia. A three-time All-Star, his best season came in 1993 when he belted 27 homers and an NL-best 109 RBIs en route to winning a Silver Slugger. He was widely acknowledged as the leader and heart of the 1993 Phillies club that shockingly won that year's NL pennant.

In July 1997, the Phillies traded Daulton to the Florida Marlins, who he helped win that year’s World Series before retiring at season’s end.

Daulton played 1,161 games in the majors, posting a .784 OPS and slugging 137 home runs.

The Phillies inducted Daulton into their Wall of Fame at Citizens Bank Park in 2010.

Per the Phillies' statement, Daulton is survived by his wife, Amanda, and their four children, along with his parents and brother.
