iPhone : This is what makes the NCAA tournament great. It’s why we watch. Because every team, David and Goliath, have an equal opportunity to advance toward the national championship. All they have to do is win.

iPhone : Let’s be honest: this No. 16 over a No. 1 would be more shocking if it wasn’t Virginia in March. Surprising as it is, Virginia choking in the NCAA tournament is always plausible.

iPhone : Look at Tony Bennett’s expression on the sideline. Same for every player on the bench. Virginia has known what’s happening since about the 10-minute mark. Can’t do anything about it.

iPhone : There may be some structure of the deal that we don't know about, but it appears the #Packers handed the #Bears CB Kyle Fuller on a very digestible platter. Usually teams make offer sheets very hard to match. The #Bears needed like 2 hours to decide.

iPhone : #Packers continue their search for a CB after lightning-quick match from Bears. twitter.com/rapsheet/statu…

TweetDeck : Exactly. Money and more years, presumably with a front-loaded contract. In other words, should've just franchised him. twitter.com/djtraks/status…

TweetDeck : No. If Bears match #Packers offer sheet, Kyle Fuller will remain in Chicago no matter which team he wants to play for. twitter.com/Eric_Bach/stat…

TweetDeck : Another reason #Packers going after Kyle Fuller. They were reportedly interested in Rashaan Melvin. But their interest in Fuller is not new. twitter.com/RapSheet/statu…

TweetDeck : From afar, a source said, #Packers have long admired Bears CB Kyle Fuller. Not surprising Brian Gutekunst is making an aggressive play by signing him to an offer sheet. They've viewed him as a solid starter, and they've had too few for too long.

TweetDeck : Earlier this week, when Brian Gutekunst was asked if it's "imperative" to sign a free-agent CB, #Packers GM said it wasn't. Very next thing he said: "We're going to look at every avenue."

Signing a transition tag player to an offer sheet certainly is looking at every avenue.

iPhone : #Packers have indeed signed #Bears CB Kyle Fuller to an offer sheet, according to a source. The #Bears placed a transition tag on Fuller, which gives them the right of first refusal. News first reported by Brad Biggs.

iPhone : #Packers announce they signed TE Jimmy Graham. First big free-agent signing for Brian Gutekunst. Finally official.
