  1. Cardinals Looking to Trade Josh Rosen

As the NFL combine is coming to a close the Arizona Cardinals are trying to position themselves to acquire another first round draft pick

  • Kliff Kingsburg seems to think Kyler Murray would be the QB for his offensive system and would pick him as the No. 1 pick in the draft
  • Alex Smith is unlikely to play this year after breaking his tibia and fibula and then enduring several surgeries to deal with infections. So the Washington Redskins are showing serious interest in the Cardinal rookie QB.

    2. LeBron James may not make the playoffs and his streak of NBA Finals appearances in jeopardy.

  • President Donald Trump welcomed the Football Championship Subdivision champions — the North Dakota State Bison — to the White House on Monday. And, according to a pool report, he served them a lunchtime spread of Big-Macs, Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches and french fries, among other fast-food items.
  • Trump served a similar meal to the Clemson Tigers when they visited the White House in January.
  • Trump has now hosted six football teams at the White House since taking office in 2016, in addition to the MLB’s Houston Astros and NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins. Other championship teams, however, have either declined to visit the White House or not received an invitation from the president. Trump has yet to honor a championship basketball team at the White House. From , USA TODAY
  • The president had praise for quarterback Easton Stick, comparing him to Tom Brady. “Somebody better draft him, he’s going to be a rich guy,” Trump said of Stick. Stick, who joined his former teammates after showing his skills at the NFL combine in Indianapolis, presented the president a North Dakota State No. 45 jersey.

  • Michigan has also entered the No. 1 seed conversation. The victory over ranked Maryland on the road set the Wolverines in position to move into the top four seeds.
