Rise Up Right Highlights In Sports

Thank you for reading this weeks sports highlights  Let’s Rise Up!

Buffalo Bills News 

The Buffalo Bills offseason are becoming more interesting to watch as Brandon Beane has made some quiet but impactful moves over the last week or so. The Bills general manager has had to make some moves that have Bills Mafia excited to see what’s next and a few moves that stunned some others. One of those impactful but stunning moves was the release of John Brown. This move came to pass for multiple reasons. The biggest reasons were because of the drop in salary for every NFL team to 182.5 million this year and because John “Smoke” Brown is turning 32 and has been injury-prone. The bills would have taken a 9 million dollar cap hit if they kept Brown. The decision was tough but had to be made based on all of the unfortunate circumstances. The Bills did make some moves that pleased the majority of Buffalo Bills fans as they signed Matt Milano to a 4 year 41.5 million-dollar contract with a 7 million dollar signing bonus and 20 million of that guaranteed when he signed the contract. Matt Milano will have to get better with his tackling abilities especially against the run. The bills also signed linebacker Andre Smith, offensive tackle Daryl Williams and offensive guard Jon Feliciano whose extension is worth up to 17 million over the next three seasons. March Madness is starting early with the Bills offseason moves. For more Buffalo Bills news keep reading the best challenger sports articles here with Rise Up Right!

As it stands currently, the Sabres are the worst team in the NHL. There is a lot of noise being made about the Sabres management. There were rumors just a couple weeks ago about the Sabres possibly being sold. What are the Sabres going to do? Kevyn Adams and Ralph Krueger have some questions that need to be answered.
