CBS Sports names Ravens’ best move of 2022 offseason

The Baltimore Ravens have made many solid moves during the 2022 offseason, ranging from bringing their own players back to signing outside free agents and even securing an extremely talented draft class.

F1’s Daniel Ricciardo Addresses Contract Situation With McLaren

IMAGO / PanoramiC One of the larger talking points that has taken the Formula One fanbase by storm is the status of Daniel Ricciardo and McLaren. Ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix, McLaren CEO Zak Brown told Sky Sports’ Any Driven Monday, in part, “Daniel is just not comfortable yet with the car, we’re trying everything we can. Again it was a disappointing weekend. Short of [Ricciardo's win at] Monza and a few races, it’s generally not kind of met his or our expectations, as far as what we were expecting.” And Ricciardo agreed. “Well, it’s not false. It’s pretty true. It’s something that … well, firstly, comments like that I don’t take personally. My skin is tanned, beautiful, and also thick,” the Australian said, in part, during the drivers’ press conference before Monaco....

Much like in the case of 2023 star quarterback Arch Manning, the Carr family appears to have prioritized an open recruitment process over family ties du...

Savage Sports Helps Non-Sports Outlets Monetize Sports Betting, Gaming – Sportico.com

Most sports media properties have sports betting affiliate programs in place (some have opted for brand partnership deals instead). But there are countless non-sports digital media assets that have yet to tap into the potentially lucrative revenue stream. Savage Sports—the sports betting and online gambling media arm of Savage Ventures, a Nashville-based venture capital/operator hybrid—is working to change that.
