Former Eagle Todd Herremans not happy about Brent Celek's pay cut

Former Eagle Todd Herremans not happy about Brent Celek's pay cut

Former Eagles offensive lineman Todd Herremans hasn't been shy about speaking his mind. In February, Herremans talked with ESPN.com's Tim McManus about reworking the NFL's drug policy toward marijuana.

On Wednesday, Herremans tweeted about his friend and former teammate Brent Celek, who recently agreed to a pay cut. Celek will now earn $3 million this season instead of $4 million, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

Herremans did follow up that tweet with a few showing he understands the business side of the move. The Eagles entered this offseason in a tight salary cap situation.

The Kings blame Joel Embiid for loss

The Kings aren't happy with Joel Embiid.

They placed some blame on the Sixers' big man for their 23-point loss Thursday night.

How was Embiid at fault for a game he didn't even play?

Well, the Kings felt the wrath of Karl-Anthony Towns.

Let's just say Embiid may have fired up Towns after he embarrassed the Timberwolves' big man on Instagram the night prior (see story). In Embiid's defense, Towns was the instigator (see story).

Nonetheless, Towns went off on the Kings for 30 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, five blocks and a plus-22 rating, leading the Timberwolves to a 119-96 win.

"I came to be an assassin tonight, not a basketball player," Towns said after the victory. "I wanted to try to be as active as possible and just disrupt the game as much as possible as well."

Way to go, JoJo.

Sorry, Kings.

Pat Neshek scares Rhys Hoskins fans

Pat Neshek scares Rhys Hoskins fans

Pat Neshek is unofficially a Phillie once again, and he’s got jokes.

The lone All-Star for the 2017 Phillies, Neshek wore No. 17 in his short stint with the team last season. No problem, when he rejoins the team in spring training this season, he will get his number back, right?

Enter Rhys Hoskins.

After a relatively slow start to his MLB career for the first few games, Hoskins went on an absolute tear, belting 18 home runs in less than one-third of the season during his rookie campaign. During that time, a lot of fans probably bought a ton of Rhys Hoskins No. 17 jerseys.

Well, Neshek is back and he wants his number back. He posted this tweet Thursday.

He let 22 minutes go by before responding with this Tweet.

Some fans were not amused with his first post.

That’s a pretty funny joke and it shows that Neshek, who is an avid baseball card collector, is a true fan of the game, kept up with how his former team was doing while he was away last season and has a decent sense of humor.

Looks like Neshek will find a new number, but Phillies fans will hope he’s just as effective in it as he was last season in No. 17.
