Jordan Matthews returns to Eagles after 2017 trade to Buffalo
09/19/2018 8:36am

PHILADELPHIA -- Depleted at wide receiver, the Eagles turned to a familiar face for help, signing Jordan Matthews on Wednesday while placing starting wideout Mike Wallace on injured reserve. Matthews, a second-round pick by the Eagles in 2014, played in Philadelphia for three years, averaging 75 catches, 891 yards and six touchdowns per season. He was traded to the Buffalo Bills prior to the start of last season along with a third-round pick for cornerback Ronald Darby. Hampered by injury, Matthews bounced from Buffalo to New England and was released by the Patriots with an injury settlement in August. The Eagles are in serious need of depth at the moment, with only three healthy wide receivers on their 53-man roster. Wallace suffered a fractured fibula against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2 and underwent surgery Tuesday. Alshon Jeffery is still on the mend from offseason rotator cuff surgery; coach Doug...

Brett Brown: Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz adding range
09/19/2018 8:46am

PHILADELPHIA -- Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz are expected this season to join the  76ers' "Big Three." No, not as franchise cornerstones -- the No. 1 draft picks were already part of that trio with All-Star center Joel Embiid. But as long-distance shooters, Simmons and Fultz went 0-for-the season on 3s; Simmons, the NBA rookie of the year, missed all 11 attempts, and Fultz went 0-for-1. Sixers coach Brett Brown said Tuesday that both players have put in the work needed on their jumpers, though neither player will ever become defined by his work beyond the arc. Brown said Fultz took about 150,000 shots this summer under the tutelage of trainer Drew Hanlen. Simmons has worked with his brother, Liam, a former college basketball assistant coach, at 3s and shooting from the elbow. Simmons attempted just one 3 in the postseason, and he'll have to establish some sort of long-range jumper to become a serious all-around...

Won and done? Sportsbooks banning the smart money
09/19/2018 8:46am

Already a hot-button issue in the United Kingdom, a controversial bookmaking practice is starting to spread in the U.S.'s growing legal sports betting market, too. Bookmakers from London to Las Vegas are refusing to take bets from a growing number of customers whose only offense might be trying to win. The full scope of the issue in the U.K. is difficult to determine, but it's believed only a small fraction of the roughly 8.5 million "punters" (the European term for bettors) are impacted. Gaming experts say sportsbooks might have closed as many as 50,000 betting accounts in recent years, and just as many punters have had their betting limits restricted to mere pittance. As one U.K. bettor put it, "If you try to win, they don't let you play anymore." "Yes, bookmakers are severely restricting or closing accounts for what appears to be the fact that these people are winning," said U.K. gambling consultant Steve...
