Murray represents a lot of high-profile players, including Dellin Betances. Last spring, after the Yankees beat Murray and Betances in an arbitration case, Yankees president Randy Levine held a conference call, blasting Murray for trying to have the All-Star Betances paid like a closer instead of a setup man.
Quick hits: For the first time since 1982, the NCAA Selection will not be on CBS. TBS will broadcast the Selection Show, as well as the complete Final Four. The two entities will combine on the productions so Jim Nantz, Grant Hill and Bill Raftery will have the call of the championship game. Yankees fans are ready for the season. On Friday, their exhibition day game on YES outrated regular-season night games from the Knicks, all three local NHL hockey teams and the NBA on ESPN.That viral video of the Ardsley High Schooler stealing and heaving a game-winner that has been viewed nearly 2 million times was shot by sports writer Kevin Devaney Jr. Devaney is a high school sports savant, who was let go by News 12 Varsity at the end of last year. Devaney was also on hand, as an analyst, for the last viral high school video, when New Rochelle hit what became known as The Shot five years ago to the day.
After two years under the franchise tag with combined earnings of nearly $44 million, Cousins will experience a rarity for upper-level quarterbacks: a true bidding war for his services. The Redskins have moved on to Alex Smith, whose acquisition will become official when the new league year begins March 14.

Although he never matched his early-career production after the 2015 trade to the Seahawks — in part because of a serious patellar tendon injury that season — Graham remains a major weapon in the red zone. His 10 touchdown receptions (on only 95 targets) in 2017 were tied for second in the league. Someone will see major value there.
Suh can still be an elite-level interior player, even if he doesn’t produce eye-popping sack numbers. He keeps himself in excellent shape and, when invested, requires the attention of multiple blockers. Any honest appraisal of him must note his inconsistent effort level, but overall, he is one of the few potential difference-makers available on the market.
