Seahawks postponed Kaepernick workout after anthem question
Apparently Bengals owner Mike Brown isn’t the only one asking free agents whether they’ll kneel during the anthem.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Seahawks had scheduled a workout for former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but postponed it when he declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem.
Slumping slugger Giancarlo Stanton struck out twice more and grounded into a double play, finishing 0 for 4 and drawing boos from Yankees fans again. Last year’s NL MVP, traded to New York in the offseason as part of a payroll purge by new Marlins CEO and ex-Yankees captain Derek Jeter, went hitless in his first series against his former team. Stanton is 3 for 35 (.086) with 20 strikeouts at home this season. Track record don’t matter in the moment, he said. You’ve got to own up to it and understand and find a way to get better, find a way to get out of it. Stanton has batted third but might be dropped slightly in the order, Boone said.

The Jets elected to cut Forte loose this offseason.
For his career, Forte rushed for 9,796 yards on 2,356 carries (4.2 YPC) to go along with 554 receptions and 4,672 yards receiving and 89 total touchdowns over the course of 10 seasons and 146 games.
Getting Beal going again at home is vital for the Wizards to have any shot in this best-of-seven series.
The Raptors are doing a good job of being physical with him, Washington coach Scott Brooks said of Beal. He missed some open shots. He hasn’t been able to get to the lane and get to the free throw line. That’s a little bit on him, a little bit on me, a little bit on John.
We need him. We are going to have trouble beating this team if he doesn’t play better, and he will.
Game 3 on Friday night back in D.C. will give Beal and the rest of the Wizards a chance to bounce back from their early 2-0 first-round hole, something they say they can do.
