We begin in the NFL, where the Denver Broncos have been forced to respond to rumours concerning star quarterback Peyton Manning. The franchise have today firmly denied reports that broke yesterday, which claimed they had tried to trade away the future Hall of Famer to the Houston Texans earlier this offseason. Elsewhere in the league, Tom Brady’s appeal hearing concerning his four-game Deflate-gate suspension took place in New York yesterday. The Patriots quarterback’s testimony lasted 11 hours and he is said to have been as forthcoming as possible when answering questions. Across to the NBA, and lingering fears over a foot injury could cause one draft star to slip down the board on June 25th. Kentucky big man Willie Cauley-Stein is said to be worrying teams who believe a 2014 foot surgery has not healed correctly. And finally, in soccer, details about Andrea Pirlo’s impending move to New York City FC continue to emerge.
