How the Cowboys could land Manziel

The NFL's draft may be two months away, but that shouldn't stop teams from looking ahead to annual talent grab -- or work a franchise-turning plan. So here's a grand plan: Trade Tony Romo to the Houston Texans for the first pick in the draft. Use that pick to draft, yes, Johnny Football. ... Boy, [the Texans] need a veteran quarterback who can play. Tony can play. Don't give me any back talk on that. Tony can play. If the Texans want more in the deal, the Cowboys can throw in their second-round pick. Whatever it takes, Johnny replaces Tony immediately. And Jerry? He knows he's not going anywhere with Tony. Not anywhere except the proven 8-and-8. Mr. Jones needs new blood at QB. And he needs out from under that stupid contract he gave Romo last summer. (Star-Telegram) Comment

Isiah-to-Detroit speculation on the rise

Soon, Isiah Thomas will be back -- though perhaps not in the form some believe: He'll be in town for the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Pistons title in 1989. Thomas hasn't returned to The Palace much since his retirement as a player nearly 20 years ago, but when he has, he's always been treated as a favorite son. And according to a report from the New York Daily News, Pistons owner Tom Gores is considering Thomas for the position currently held by Thomas' former teammate, Joe Dumars. Gores has given no indication about Dumars' future, and Dumars hasn't given any of his own to date. Sources told The Detroit News the only conversations Gores and Thomas have had revolved around the Bad Boys reunion. (The Detroit News) Comment

Pujols irked by Trout rivalry question

That may just be a chip right up there on Albert Pujols' shoulder. The Angels might be all about Mike Trout this and Mike Trout that, but [Pujols] scoffed at the suggestion that he might be motivated by all that Trout has accomplished. "I don't need to compare with anybody, buddy," Pujols said Sunday. "Just look at my numbers. My job is to stay healthy and go out there and play. I don't need anybody to motivate me to play this game." The Angels plan to bat Trout second and Pujols third, the keys to an offense that could be formidable if Pujols resembles his St. Louis self. In 11 years with the Cardinals, Pujols was the National League most valuable player three times. "I want to stay healthy and play every day," he said. "The numbers are going to be there at the end, because I know how to hit." (Los Angeles Times) Comment
