P.K. is O.K.

After a teammate accidentally ran into his head last night, Canadiens star P.K. Subban left the Habs' game against the Sabres on a stretcher. Well good news: He has been discharged from the hospital and the team is calling his neck injury "not serious".

Nate, the great...cornerback?

Some out-of-work former star athletes think they can make comebacks in new sports. Nate Robinson, former NBA point guard, wants to try out for an NFL team at cornerback. He previously played 12 football games at the University of Washington and had two interceptions. It seems far-fetched but this video about his transformation will have you believing:

And in somewhat less credible news, Chad Johnson (formerly Ochocinco) thinks he could make an MLS team. You may or not remember that Johnson practiced with Sporting KC during the 2011 NFL lockout and made it all the way to a reserve game before being cut:

Today's Peanuts

The Cleveland Browns have released quarterback Johnny Manziel, the team announced Friday.

Manziel, 23, was a volatile figure during his time in Cleveland, coming to the franchise as arguably the most popular player in the 2014 NFL draft, but leaving with speculation about his ability to control his life on and off the field. 

While he had already lost favor with the Browns after a number of incidents during his tenure, a recent investigation into Manziel’s alleged assault of his ex-girlfriend led new head coach Hue Jackson to publicly condemn his player’s actions.

Manziel’s off-field troubles date back to his time at Texas A&M, where he was the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner as a sophomore.

A history of controversies surrounding Johnny Manziel

On the field, Manziel struggled to win games when handed the reins of the offense. He made six starts last season in place of an injured Josh McCown, finishing with a 2–4 record. He was named the starter for the rest of the season on Nov. 17, but was dropped to third string after a video surfaced of him partying during a bye week. 

Browns spokesman denies that team lied to protect Johnny Manziel

Manziel thanked the Browns after his release through a statement from his publicist.

In 15 career NFL games, Manziel has completed 57% of his passes with 1,675 yards, seven touchdowns, seven interceptions and seven fumbles.

The Denver Broncos have acquired quarterback Mark Sanchez for a conditional draft pick in 2017, general manager John Elway announced Friday.

The trade was first reported by Mike Klis of 9News in Denver.

Sanchez played in four games for the Eagles last season, his second year with the team. He threw 91 passes, completing 59 of them, with four touchdowns and four interceptions for a passer rating of 80.7.

The Broncos were searching for a quarterback this off-season after the retirement of Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler’s departure in free agency. In Sanchez, Denver acquires a player with playoff experience, with the quarterback having played in back-to-back AFC Championship Games with the New York Jets in 2009 and 2010.

BEDARD: Grading every NFL free agency deal

In his career, Sanchez has completed 56.7% of his passes for 15,126 yards, with 74 touchdowns, 84 interceptions and 30 fumbles.
