Terrell McClain, Falcons Agree on 1-Year Contract After 1 Season with Redskins

The Atlanta Falcons and free-agent defensive tackle Terrell McClain reached an agreement Friday.

Atlanta announced the signing. Vaughn McClure of ESPN reported it’s a one-year contract.

Derrius Guice’s first-round grade didn’t survive the league’s predraft evaluation, and the talented running back tumbled to the Washington Redskins with the 59th overall pick. 

Immaturity and unreported incidents supposedly caused the free fall. How much is true can be considered moot since he’s in Washington. 

New England’s marquee games remain those against Pittsburgh and Kansas City, their fellow first-place AFC teams from 2017. But it also has couple much-anticipated interconference matchups this season.

Here’s looking at all the games on the Patriots’ 2018 slate and an early projection of how their season will play out.

Toughest tests: The Jaguars and Steelers present the toughest road games, but Aaron Rodgers’ Packers and Kirk Cousins’ Vikings will be excellent duels with Tom Brady on his home field. The Texans also gave the Patriots a test with Deshaun Watson in New England last season.

First baseman Tyler Austin was the Yankees’ biggest hitting star with two long homers off Royals starter Eric Skoglund, but Gray finally reverting to his Oakland heyday form was the big story.

Gray (3-3) retired the first 14 hitters he faced in a one-run, eight-inning gem in which he allowed four hits, struck out five, walked one and hit a batter.

And, yes, Gray again was throwing to personal catcher Austin Romine in lowering his ERA from 6.39 to 5.48.

Gray, who left after eight innings with his pitch count at 92, has a 4.08 ERA over his last five starts working with Romine.

Gray lost his perfect game with two outs in the fifth when Royals first baseman Hunter Dozier blooped a single to center. ravens_073
