Cowboys recruit Cassel

It would appear that the Dallas Cowboys have been successful in their attempts to find a suitable backup to Brandon Weeden, with the franchise having signed Matt Cassel from the Buffalo Bills yesterday.

The Cowboys have been searching for a new quarterback after losing Tony Romo to injury, and it appears that Cassel is their man.

Supposedly Kellen Moore will be number two to Weeden when the Cowboys take on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3, but Cassel will move up to the backup position once he’s had time to learn the system.

McCown cleared

Elsewhere, the Cleveland Browns have received good news regarding quarterback Josh McCown, as the 36-year-old has been cleared to return to action.

Having been moved out of the NFL’s concussion protocol, it’s reported that McCown will now start ahead of Johnny Manziel against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, having missed last week’s victory over the Tennessee Titans.

LeBron's future

Meanwhile, in the NBA Lebron James isn’t basing his Cleveland Cavaliers future around the future of contract rebel Tristan Thompson.

Thompson and the Cavs are reportedly $14million apart with regards to a contract extension agreement, and fears were prominent that it could affect LeBron’s happiness.

However, a source has claimed that’s not the case, as the four-time MVP’s goals aren’t based around other individuals.

Jabari Parker return

Last but not least, it’s over to Milwaukee, where the Bucks are said to be hopeful that star forward Jabari Parker will be able to participate in their upcoming training camp.

As per the franchise isn't going to rush the youngster back prematurely, but he is expected to be on the court when the Bucks’ camp opens on September 29.
