Deshaun Watson not interested in playing for Eagles?

  Deshaun Watson not interested in playing for Eagles? The Houston Texans may be inching closing to trading DeShaun Watson ahead of the Nov. 2 deadline, but there's apparently one interested team that Watson isn't interested in playing for.According to Texans reporter Aaron Wilson, the Philadelphia Eagles were aggressive in pursuing Watson at one point. Eagles general manager Howie Roseman even went through the trouble of contacting Watson’s legal team and sending an investigator to Houston. The issue is Watson has a no-trade clause, and he reportedly does not want to play for Philly.

Steven Stamkos currently holds the Lightning’s record for the most goals scored (443), most power play goals (167), most even strength goals (271) and most hat tricks (9). He’s also third on the list of players with the most assists in franchise history (432) and third on the list of players with the most games played in the Lightning’s jersey (846)

The Tampa Bay Lightning took the reigning President’s Trophy winner Colorado Avalanche to the shootout, but ultimately lost in the skills competition, 4-3. In a game where the Lightning once again gave up the opening goal and were forced to play from behind, it never felt like the Lightning were out of it. They were always within one goal and tied the game three times with gutsy goals from key players. While not ideal, the start of the season has been difficult, but there has been marked improvement by this group and the point the team got from this game is another step in the right direction.

Tua Tagovailoa: 'I don’t not feel wanted' by Dolphins

  Tua Tagovailoa: 'I don’t not feel wanted' by Dolphins Tagovailoa is left in a tough spot as rumors linking his team to Deshaun Watson continue to swirl.According to the latest reports, the Texans and Miami Dolphins have maybe agreed to the terms of a potential transaction that hasn't yet been completed because Watson is still facing 22 lawsuits alleging acts of sexual assault and misconduct and 10 criminal complaints, and there's no guarantee he won't ultimately be made ineligible to play via the commissioner's exempt list or a suspension amid ongoing police and NFL investigations.

The Kraken also retired No. 32 — as the 32nd franchise in the NHL and as a gratitude to their 32.000 season-ticket depositors.

Deshaun Watson not at Texans practice Tuesday .
When asked by reporters, Texans head coach David Culley didn’t offer up much of an explanation. “We make decisions every day based on what’s best for our football team,” Culley said (Twitter link via Field Yates of ESPN.com). “Nothing new today on that.”Watson still wants out of Houston, even in the midst of 20+ lawsuits. The Texans are willing to make that happen, though they’re asking for a lot in return. Texans GM Nick Caserio reportedly wants a combination of five high draft picks plus quality players in exchange for the embattled quarterback.For his part, Caserio doesn’t seem to be in any rush.
