  • new49ers announce 4-year deal with DT Earl Mitchell (The Associated Press)
    When Earl Mitchell got a head start on free agency after being released last week by the Miami Dolphins, the San Francisco 49ers managed to sell him on familiarity with coaches rather than past success for the team. After mostly sitting out free agency last offseason, the Niners beat out Atlanta, Seattle and Denver for Mitchell's services by officially signing him to a four-year $16 million contract on Saturday. Mitchell will be paid $5.5 million in 2017, a person familiar with the deal said on condition of anonymity because terms were not released.

    The Texans-Raiders game in Mexico City last November generated an increase of $45 million in the city's gross revenues, the NFL said Thursday. A league-commissioned study by the Sports Industry group of Ernst and Young used a range of sources, including the NFL's post-event surveys of fans who attended the game and wider economic data on Mexico's economy. It determined that the Monday night game that drew a crowd of 76,473 included 9,500 international visitors mainly from the United States, and 21,500 visitors who traveled from elsewhere in Mexico.

The game attracted 9,500 international visitors who, on average, spent more than five days in Mexico, as well as 21,500 visitors from elsewhere in the country, according to the results of a study commissioned by the NFL. The study also said total domestic and international tourist spending was $43 million, of which $32 million was incremental to Mexico City's economy.

  • Should the Browns trade for Jimmy Garoppolo? We debate it from all sides (Shutdown Corner)
    It seems like a good bet Jimmy Garoppolo will be traded somewhere this offseason. The New England Patriots are working on an extension with Tom Brady, and he looks like he might make good on his promise to play into his mid-40s (he turns 40 before next season). The Patriots can’t really pay $20 million or so to franchise tag Brady’s backup, they can’t give Garoppolo a starting-quarterback-level contract with Brady still in place, and one would have to imagine Garoppolo would want to go somewhere else and start.

While that might seem like a good thing, Simon is coming up on free agency, which means he’s free to leave for what may perceived as greener pastures.

  • Texans owner rips Brock Osweiler, says team will look for young QB

  • Texans could explore possible trade for Garoppolo
    The New England Patriots will likely entertain trade offers for backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason, and they may wind up getting a phone call from the Houston Texans.Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle speculates that the Texans are one of the teams in need of a quarterback that could be interested in acquiring Garoppolo. The problem, of course, is that the Patriots are likely to place a high price tag on the 25-year-old. And Garoppolo would cost a team like Houston even more because of the seemingly atrocious contract Brock Osweiler signed less than a year ago.Garoppolo is st…
