Sabres acquire defenseman Nathan Beaulieu from Canadiens

The Buffalo Sabres have acquired defenseman Nathan Beaulieu from the Montreal Canadiens for a third-round pick. Buffalo sent the 68th overall pick in the 2017 draft to Montreal for the pending restricted free agent. The teams announced the trade Saturday prior to the NHL’s trade freeze for the Vegas expansion draft.

The 24-year-old set career highs with four goals, 24 assists and 28 points last season, his fifth in the NHL. Montreal was in danger of losing Beaulieu in the expansion draft, while Buffalo has room to protect him.

Come in, Number 69

When Zarbo gets injured so early in the season, Jeff’s pretty certain that their title hopes are over. He’s not superstitious but losing a veteran like Zarbo does not augur well. He’s an important part of the PK, and he puts up points, and, more than that, he’s a focal point in the locker room. Sometimes, with Zarbo in the room, it’s easy to forget that Parse is so new at this captaincy thing because Zarbo’s an anchor for all of them.

Summary: When Jude fell for him, Connor Stevens was just a minor league baseball player with major dreams of making it to the big leagues. Through all the struggles of trying to get his chance, Jude was there. But the day when Connor finally makes it is when things start changing. Finally, when their relationship is forced into secrecy, can they survive, or will Connor’s big break, break them?

A/N: So this is my new multichapter fanfic.  It’s based off this prompt from myfavoritythingsPerson A is the star of something and has been dating Person B for several years in secret, but then Person B does not want to be a secret anymore.  I’m taking this and modifying it slightly (as you can probably already tell from the summary), but I just really love the whole premise.  I’m starting it out slow, building the entire story from the moment they met.  I really hope you all enjoy this fic…it’s going to be a wild ride y’all so hold on :)

FROM NFL TO PARATROOPER…..Remember Former 49ers RB Glen Coffee? He’s An Army Paratrooper Now. Glen Coffee’s single year as a 49er may qualify as one of the strangest NFL careers. The summer after a promising 2009 rookie year, in which the third-round pick out of Alabama filled in nicely for an injured Frank Gore, Coffee up and quit. God didn’t want him to play football, he said in brief and guarded interviews. There’s more to life than the pursuit of money.

In 2013 Coffee graduated from the Army’s Airborne School at Fort Benning, Ga. He says he doesn’t miss the NFL, and that serving in the military is a much better use of his gifts than playing professional football.

Chris Borland returning big part of signing bonus to 49ers

Chris Borland said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation” he would willingly hand back part of the signing bonus he received last season from the San Francisco 49ers.

“It’s not a cash grab as I’ve been accused of,” Borland told host Bob Shieffer. “I’m paying back three-fourth of my signing bonus. I’m only taking the money I’ve earned. To me it’s just about health and nothing else. I never played the game for money or attention. I love football. I’ve had a blast. I don’t regret the last 10 years of my life at all. I’d do it over the exact same way.”

Borland, 24, shocked the NFL last week by announcing his retirement. He cited concerns about his long-term health, specifically head injuries, and said Sunday that while he only has been diagnosed with two concussions in his life, he probably suffered others beginning in high school.

Said Borland: “If you play linebacker or fullback or offensive or defensive line, which are physical, I think you’ll sustain at least mild concussions, of which there are over 20 different definitions. There’s a lot of gray area.”

Borland was a third-round pick last year and signed a four-year deal with a signing bonus of $617,436. He earned a quarter of it in 2014, a season in which he led the 49ers in tackles and received one vote for rookie defensive player of the year. He said he’d pay back the other three-fourths – $463,077 – to the 49ers. That money, if not returned, also would have counted against the 49ers’ salary cap in the form of dead money.

Borland said he wasn’t trying to steer young people away from the sport.

“I think the one thing I can say is not to play through concussions,” he said. “I think that’s unwise. Such a small percentage of players ever play in college. Of that pool, a small percentage ever play in the NFL. So do don’t anything silly when you’re 16, 17 years old.”
