Monchi also insisted that Giallorossi vice-captain Daniele De Rossi, who has always been viewed as Totti's successor as a leader, will sign a new deal with his current agreement expiring at the end of the campaign. While the Spaniard may have hastened Totti's departure, Roma had already announced there would be a six-year contract as a club director ready to be signed once he ends his playing career.
Butler's name showed up in trade talks a lot this offseason. "We have him now", said Patriots safety Patrick Chung, who was taking part in an AccessSportAmerica event at Harvard Stadium. Butler likely would have agreed to a contract last season if the Patriots were willing to pay him around $10 million annually, which would solidify his status as a top-10 cornerback in the National Football League, but the Patriots' best offer was in the range of $6 million to $7 million per season.
Just when it seems Isaiah Thomas has shown us all he has to offer, he goes out and does what he did in Game 2 , scoring a playoff career-high 53 points which includes scoring nine of Boston's 15 points in overtime.

Subban had a goal and two assists, powering Nashville to a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues in Game 1 of their second-round playoff series on Wednesday. Former Jets and Bills coach Rex Ryan also was in the stands for his second game this series wearing a Predators' sweater. Buzzing the St. Louis zone at will, the Predators fired 15 shots in that span at Jake Allen , who stopped 14 of them and single-handedly kept his team in contention.
Porcello, who allowed two runs in six innings, lost his fourth straight start to match his loss total from last season. And they even may have gotten what could be the payback for Matt Barnes nearly hitting Manny Machado in the head 10 nights earlier.
Frank Lampard believes that Pep Guardiola may have asked for too much from his Manchester City squad, adding that the Spaniard will have learnt more from his first season in the Premier League than from any previous campaigns. Against Anderlecht I had two, in one match. "We're playing against very important teams, every game is crucial and I don't see that David is having any problems with this".
