March 2017


Trevon Bluiett scored 25 points, Sean O'Mara scored inside with 40 seconds left and No. 11 seed Xavier upset No. 2 Arizona 73-71 in the West Region. Xavier (30-13) stayed with the second-seeded Wildcats behind Bluiett's 18 first-half points and tracked down the Wildcats after they tried to pull away in the second half. O'Mara scored on a power move inside, but missed a free throw to give Arizona (32-5) a final chance.
The New York Giants have signed veteran running back Shaun Draughn. The Giants announced the signing Wednesday, a little more than a month after releasing veteran Rashad Jennings in a salary cap move. Draughn has played for six teams in six years, most recently the San Francisco 49ers.
Star quarterback Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers will undergo surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff next Thursday, but expects to be ready for the start of training camp, the team announced. Newton, the 2015 league MVP, will begin an early throwing program 12 weeks following the surgery. Should he progress well from there, Newton will resume throwing with the team at 16 weeks.
The New York Giants have re-signed middle linebacker Keenan Robinson. The Giants announced the signing on Tuesday, adding that fellow linebacker Mark Herzlich had signed a new contract Monday. Robinson, who left Washington to sign with the Giants last season as a free agent, played in all 17 games with seven starts, including one in the playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.

The New York Jets have turned to Josh McCown in their winter-long search for a quarterback. A person familiar with the one-year contract told The Associated Press that the deal is for $6 million fully guaranteed, as first reported by ESPN and NFL Network. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the Jets didn't release financial terms.
The New York Jets wasted three valuable picks on quarterbacks over the last four drafts, and still had to go find a new quarterback for 2017. The Jets landed on veteran Josh McCown, who will be 38 for Week 1. At this point the only thing that might save the Jets’ quarterback situation over the long haul is getting the first pick of the 2018 draft and picking USC’s Sam Darnold, and settling for McCown this season could get them closer to that.
