The New England Patriots may have struck out when it came time to try and sign Golden Tate, Adam Humphries, and Cole Beasley in National Football League free agency... but they're not giving up on finding a wide receiver just yet.
At this stage in his career, Nelson will most likely look to join a serious contender since the time to win a Super Bowl is closing in, and even though the Rams won't be one of those teams since they're set at receiver, it will be interesting to see how things go on Tuesday with the Seahawks.
Ospina in hospital after collapsing on pitch
The Italians were drawn against Arsenal in the Europa League quarter-finals and will travel to London on April 11. Ospina made his loan move to the Naples club from the Gunners last summer following the arrival of Bernd Leno.
The veteran receiver became available last week when the Oakland Raiders released him following their trade for former Pittsburgh Steelers star wideout Antonio Brown and acquisition of former Los Angeles Chargers deep threat Tyrell Williams in free agency.
With the move, Nelson would join newly acquired slot receiver Adam Humphries, Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor, Tajae Sharpe, Cameron Batson and Darius Jennings on the depth chart. In 10 career seasons, he has 613 catches for 8,587 yards and 72 touchdowns. Other teams who are interested are the Seahawks, Titans, Chiefs and Raiders. He caught 63 passes for 739 yards and three touchdowns.
MLB's Mike Trout nears record-shattering $432 million deal
Trout, a native of Vineland, N.J., grew up a diehard Phillies fan and some thought he would join Harper in Philadelphia. The 27-year-old was scheduled to become a free agent in 2020.
After paying Nelson's roster bonus the Raiders released him saving $3.5 million in cap space.
Nelson's peak was interrupted by a torn ACL in 2015, otherwise he may have had four straight 1,200-plus yard seasons. Oakland is clearly interested at a cheaper price, but given the competition, Nelson might be able to squeeze a bit more money out of the market than expected.
Off-duty pilot saved plane one day before deadly Lion Air crash
Before the final dive, the flight crew asked the controller to "block altitude 3,000 feet above and below" to avoid traffic. Ethiopia's civil aviation head Wosenyeleh Hunegnaw told Reuters he expected a report on the investigation within 30 days.
So far, the Patriots have signed receivers Bruce Ellington and Maurice Harris.
