The NFL new year officially began today at 4pm ET, and there was a flurry of activity among the Alabama restricted free agents. Robert Foster, who was non-tendered by Washington, has signed a one-year deal with Miami. Tony Brown and Levi Wallace, both also non-tendered, were immediately re-signed by their respective teams, Cincinnati and Buffalo. The only remaining restricted free agent, Cam Sims, did receive a tender offer at the “right of first refusal” level, which will be worth $2,133,000 if he re-signs with Washington.
Collin Sexton scored 29 points, and added 7 rebounds and 6 assists, to lead Cleveland to a 117-110 win over Boston tonight, ending a 4-game losing streak.
Though he didn’t score last night, Kira Lewis has been an offensive weapon of late, as noted by Fox Sports New Orleans.
