The Latest Sports Headlines: 


>>Packers QB Still A Top Seller For NFL

(New York, NY)  -- Green Bay Packers number-12 jerseys are still flying off the shelves.  Over the last 12 months, the jerseys of only five N-F-L players have been sold more often than Aaron Rodgers’. Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was the player with the highest sales. The information from the N-F-L Players Association only includes items sold from N-F-L sites, Nike, Fanatics and other NFLPA licensees. If you bought one at a flea sale, you didn’t get counted. The list of players just ahead of Rodgers includes Tom Brady, Lamar Jackson, Ezekiel Elliot and Baker Mayfield.  Packers wide receiver Davante Adams was 45th in sales for the year-long period ending February 29th.

 

>>MLB Teams Will Be Allowed To Furlough Workers Or Cut Their Pay

(New York, NY)  -- Major League Baseball teams will be given permission today (Monday) to furlough employees or cut their pay. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports commissioner Rob Manfred will issue the formal notification.  It goes into effect May 1st. Teams don’t have to take the steps, but it could help the organizations facing the stiffest financial pressures. In a deal reached last month between M-L-B and the player’s association, it was agreed they will receive a prorated portion of their salary in 2020, so, if the league plays 81 games, they will get half of their contracted salary amount.

 

>>4 Wisconsin Badgers Wrestlers Make All-American List

(Manheim, PA)  -- Four wrestlers with the Wisconsin Badgers are included on the list of All-Americans released late last week. Seth Gross, Trent Hillger and Evan Wick were named to the first team and Tristan Moran earned second-team honors.  It was the third time Gross has be named an All-American and the second time for Wick and Hillger. Those two will return next season for coach Chris Bono. It had been nine years since the last time the Badgers had as many as four wrestlers earn the honor for the same season.

 

>>UW’s Top Basketball Recruiting Class Could Get Better Soon

(Madison, WI)  -- In just two weeks the Wisconsin Badgers basketball recruiting class for 2021 could get even better.  247Sports has already rated coach Greg Gard’s class number-two in the nation. Four-star guard Julian Roper is planning to commit to a program for his college career effective Monday, May 4th.  He had an official visit to Madison last November. The Rivals website is reporting Roper has received at least 13 offers, including four from other teams in the Big Ten. The Michigan product played high school basketball with 2020 U-W signee Lorne Bowman at Orchard Lake St. Mary’s High School located in a Detroit suburb.

 

>>Former Buck Andrew Bogut Close To Retirement Decision

(Sydney, AU)  -- Former Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut may put up the high-tops now that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been delayed until next year.  Bogut was a number-one draft pick for the Bucks in 2005. He had planned to retire after taking one last shot at winning the gold for Australia.  After 15 years of professional basketball, Bogut says he isn’t sure he’s up to taking on the training and discipline he’d need to go another year.  Bogut could be joined by 76ers standout Ben Simmons in 2021 if he hangs around. That would mean Australia could mount a serious threat to the U-S-A.
