We begin in the NFL where Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has dropped a hint about his team’s plans for the upcoming draft.

Having seen 2014 Offensive Player of the Year DeMarco Murray leave for the Eagles this offseason fans are hoping to see a top running back arrive to add much needed depth. Jones though insisted the Cowboys would be fine with their current back field for 2015 and had no urgency to take a back in the early rounds.

"It's not urgent. It's not urgent in the draft," Jones said on Tuesday. "We don't have that as a must to come out of here with a running back."

With the likes of Todd Gurley (UGA) and Melvin Gordon (Wisconsin) set to be taken off the board in the first round there had been speculation that Dallas would make a play at one of the RB prospects.

Instead, Jones went on record to say he'd be happy to enter the 2015 season with a current depth chart comprising of Darren McFadden, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar.

"Yes. Again, is running back an area of interest position-wise? Certainly. Certainly it is. But my opinion is we could play with the running backs we've got right now and play well."


Across to the NBA, and the San Antonio Spurs edged ahead in their playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers last night - a 111-107 road win putting them up 3-2.

39-year-old Tim Duncan rolled back the years to help the reigning NBA champions grab the crucial win - racking up 21 points and 11 rebounds to move the Spurs one step closer.

The Houston Rockets meanwhile progressed to round two after beating the Dallas Mavericks in five.


Finally, in baseball, the Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox are set to take part in an MLB first this afternoon.

The Oriole Park game will take place without any fans in attendance, officially "closed to the public", as the city continues to handle the aftermath of rioting related to the funeral of Freddie Gray.
