Dolphins Spending

We start off with Greg Jennings and the news that the Miami Dolphins have made another splash in free agency to give young quarterback Ryan Tannehill as many weapons as possible in the build up to the 2015 NFL season.

According to a report from NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, Jennings is set to sign a two-year, $8 million deal with the Dolphins, not bad for the 31-year old former Viking and Packers wideout.

After trading Mike Wallace away after one too many sulks and parting ways with Brian Hartline, the Dolphins seriously needed some veteran help to compliment a very young receiver corps consisting of Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Rishard Matthews. Miami also brought in former Browns tight end Jordan Cameron as a free agent.

Jennings was in discussions with multiple teams this offseason including the Jaguars, Panthers and Saints. He caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns for the Minnesota Vikings in 2014

Other Headlines:

Over to the NBA Playoffs now, where the San Antonio Spurs managed to pull level with the Clippers last night following an overtime win as Tim Duncan rolled back the years to score 28 points and grab 11 rebounds.

In the day's other games, the Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies both went to 2-0 in their series against the Brooklyn Nets and Portland Trail Blazers respectively.

To baseball now, where there was good news for another young Chicago Cubs star. Addison Russell recorded his first ever Major League hit last night.

It came against the Pirates and their right handed pitcher Vance Worley. There is a big hype around Russell and fellow top Cubs prospect Kris Bryant.

And finally to soccer, where Cristiano Ronaldo has apparently revealed that he wants to play in LA. Ronaldo looks set to leave Real Madrid when his contract ends in 2018, with MLS being a very possible landing spot for the Portuguese star.
