When Gilbert Arenas' NBA stock started to drop in 2011, the former Washington Wizards star began trying to unload his pricey assets. Among them was his 9,000-square-foot mansion that features seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and three massive shark tanks that cost $5,000 a month to maintain, according to Bleacher Report.

The Raiders' 2019 draft class was one of the best in recent seasons, in all of the NFL.

Friday, February 14th, 2020

While conventional wisdom dictates that Brady will return to the New England Patriots, along with a souped-up supporting cast, the Raiders reportedly are set to pursue the six-time Super Bowl champion should he make it to free agency. It likely will take a hefty sum to lure Brady away from Foxboro, Mass., and longtime sportswriter Larry Fitzgerald Sr., -- who also is the father of Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald Jr. -- dropped this nugget on Twitter on Friday.
