Good morning, Sports buddies! It’s your pal Davey Mac here back with another, wonderful Sports Report for ya! Controversy in Philly! Peyton Manning gets a new job! And more! But first!
Oh my, Jets fans! You should be very happy about this as ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Jets will sign Pro Bowl running back Dalvin Cook to a one-year deal worth up to $8.6 million.

Cook is still under 30…he was just 28 last week…and has a lot of good football left in him. He was shockingly released on June 8th after four straight Pro Bowl seasons with the Vikings. Since 2019, Cook has averaged a fantastic 111 rushing yards per game. He ran for 1,173 yards last season.

Give Aaron Rodgers a little credit for this. Rodgers took a $35 million pay cut from the Jets so that they could go out and get more talent…and that’s exactly what they did. Cook is a very good if not great back. I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents!

When the Yankees got crushed by the Braves…11 to 3… once again…put a fork in the Yankees…they are done. Yankee starter Clarke Schmidt gave up eight runs to receive the loss. The Yankees drop to 60 and 59…just a game over .500. Clean house now!

Basketball. And the drama is back on in Philly between 76’ers superstar James Harden and team general manager Daryl Morey. Two days after it was reported that the Philadelphia 76ers ended trade talks involving James Harden, the 10-time All-Star guard ripped 76ers president Daryl Morey.
“Daryl Morey is a liar and I will never be a part of an organization that he’s a part of,” Harden said during an Adidas media event in China. “Let me say that again: Daryl Morey is a liar and I will never be a part of an organization that he’s a part of.”

Football. Peyton Manning will teach at his alma mater, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Manning will become a professor of practice in its College of Communication and Information.
Manning, who graduated from the school in three years in 1997 and sported a 3.61 GPA in speech communications while doing so, will “join select classes during the academic year as a featured expert” beginning this fall, the school said.
