Executing a multiple-player trade in the NFL is rare because of all the moving parts, and it appears that the Dolphins have backed off their pursuit to acquire tight end Julius Thomas from the Jacksonville Jaguars in a deal for left tackle Branden Albert.

It now appears that Foles could move to another team, as a source confirmed to The Star on Wednesday that the Chiefs will likely pass on Foles' contract option for the 2017 season.

While no one can defeat Father Time, Jagr has certainly fended him off like he does most opposing defenders who dare try to take the puck from him.
Last season, Jagr became the ...Read more
