Ball axed

NFL fans may remember when the Denver Broncos landed Montee Ball as a second-round draft pick in 2013.

Well, they’ll now be becoming accustomed to the fact that he’s been cut by the franchise, after being relegated from No.2 running-back to No.4.

He joins center Gino Gradkowski in being waived from the squad, that coming after the Broncos claimed Mitchell Henry and James Ferentz.

With the likes of Ronnie Hillman having outperformed Ball in pre-season it’s hardly a surprise, particularly as the Broncos’ General Manager, John Elway, has already described the roster as being fluid.

Dallas/ Seahawks trade

Next up, the Dallas Cowboys have agreed to trade for Seahawks running back Christine Michael, according to ESPN insider Adam Schefter.

He tweeted to relay that the Cowboys will trade a conditional draft pick to Seattle in return for the services of Michael.

Durant's dream 5

Meanwhile, in the NBA Kevin Durant has picked his all-time starting five, and it’s jam-packed with legends of the game.

Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan and Shaquille O’Neal made his squad. Quite the team indeed.

Durant did have honourable mentions for the likes of Larry Bird and Karl Malone, but in such a team there’s little room for manoeuvre.
