Hurricane issues

Hurricane Joaquin is threatening to postpone the scheduled clash between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins, with the NFL currently exploring their options.

It’s believed the league is monitoring the forecast and is in talks with both teams, with postponement a possibility if the severity of the incoming storm increases.

Of course, the game at FedExField will still go ahead if possible, so we’ll keep you updated on that.

Browns extension for Davis

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns have decided to extend the contract of Austin Davis, despite the fact that they already have Johnny Manziel and Josh McCown at their disposal.

The Browns are currently 0-3 from their opening first three matches and look to be struggling. However, that hasn’t stopped them from offering Davis a two-year extension - according to ESPN’s Field Yates - with the deal worth $4.137million.

Anthony positive with the Knicks

Across to NBA and Carmelo Anthony has given New York Knicks fans plenty of reasons to be optimistic, after stating that his franchise is competing for the championship.

The 31-year-old did concede that many people probably wouldn’t believe it but said that the big-picture goal was of paramount importance moving forward.

That’s in spite of the fact that he might be better served stamping his feet and demanding new additions from the Knicks. What can we say; he’s a patient man.

LeBron wants more time off

Lastly, LeBron James has had his say on the upcoming NBA season and confirmed that he could have done with a couple more months off.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star, now 30, said he didn’t feel as healthy as he had done in his rookie year, but all the same he’ll be present and ready when training camp gets underway.
