Report: Manning will work out for Broncos

According to multiple reports, Peyton Manning will work out for Broncos officials Friday afternoon at Duke University.

Reports emerged Friday morning that the Broncos team plane was en route to Raleigh-Durham Airport, leading to speculation that a deal was in place. However, later reports indicated that the plane is carrying Broncos officials, including John Elway, to North Carolina to see Manning throw.

The Broncos and Titans are believed to be the two finalists for Manning's services.

Ference on D&C: 'Extremely frustrating'

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning, joining guest hosts Dale Arnold and Chris Mannix. The Bruins dropped their fourth straight game Thursday night, a 6-2 loss to the Panthers.

"It's obviously extremely frustrating for us, too," Ference said. "Trying to put our finger on exactly what's going on has been a bit of a challenge."

The problems appear to be so widespread among the team that it's difficult to prioritize the issues.

"I think we've proven it over the past few years even, is when one part of our game isn't up to snuff it's almost impossible for the other parts to be at their best, whether it's individually or as a group, when you talk about forwards or goaltenders or individual players," Ference said. "We have a system that needs every single person involved and not playing perfect hockey but close to the standard that we've all...

Mashup: Jets' Sanchez rips 'gutless' critics

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez lashed out at the unnamed teammates who criticized him following the team's disappointing finish to the 2011 season, calling the comments "a gutless thing to do."

"If you're not going to put your name on something, why waste anybody's time?" said Sanchez, who last week signed a three-year, $40 million extension. "Obviously, they had strong opinions about it, but not strong enough to say who they are."

Sanchez, who has been quiet almost all of the offseason while reports came out about problems between him and receiver Santonio Holmes, took some responsibility for the issues.

"I don't want to speak for Santonio, but I know I underachieved," Sanchez said. "I think there were some things I could've handled better with him and our communication."

That said, Sanchez insisted the "feud" is not nearly as bad as it's been portrayed, and he and...

Hornets GM: 'Our intention is to keep' Kaman

You may want to hold off on thoughts about the Celtics adding New Orleans center Chris Kaman. Speaking with reporters on Thursday, Hornets general manager Dell Demps said the team was not planning to buy out the remainder of Kaman's $14 million contract that expires after this season.

"Everything is always a possibility," Demps said, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "I mean there's no reason to say I'm certain, 100 percent sure. There's always a possibility. I never want to say never. But our intention is to keep Chris."

If the Hornets do buy out Kaman's contract and waive him, they would have to do it by March 23 for Kaman to be eligible for the postseason. The Hornets are owned by the NBA, which could also complicate things. In addition to the Celtics, Yahoo! reported that the Spurs and Heat would also be interested in Kaman if...

Ainge: C's will be patient in big man search

SACRAMENTO -- The Celtics didn't make a trade on Thursday, but they still obviously need a big man. Team president Danny Ainge said the C's would be patient and let the market develop.

The deadline for players to be waived or bought out of their contracts and still be eligible for a postseason roster is March 23. (Note that players only have to be bought out by that date. They can sign at any point until the last day of the regular season as long as they are not on an NBA roster by the March 23 deadline).

"We do need to add a big man," Ainge said. "We need to find the best big man available and we'll be a little bit patient in that."

In order to add someone, the Celtics must also subtract someone from their roster, but Ainge said it was too early to determine which player that may be. An obvious candidate is Jermaine O'Neal, and Ainge is scheduled to meet with him on Friday. Ainge said that O'Neal has been working out at...
