St. Louis Rams rookie Michael Sam, best known for being Oprah's favorite seventh-round draft pick, flashed the “money” gesture after sacking Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel. Manziel showed how much he's matured in a week's time by not making any gesture in return.

Did you see where one Twitter user promised free drinks for everyone in the world “forever” if Sam sacked Manziel and gave the money sign? Afterward, the man decided to make a charity donation in lieu of free drinks. Word has it Manziel, for one, was pretty darned disappointed.

Is that Incognito?

Free agent offensive lineman Richie Incognito, unemployed since the bullying incident with the Miami Dolphins, was scheduled to visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday. The Bucs were expected to put him through the usual drills: 40-yard dash, agility cones and resisting the urge to knock down unsuspecting teammates and take their lunch money.

Love the breaking news

The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Saturday the revelation that they have a deal to bring Kevin Love to town to play with LeBron James. Not to be outdone, the Los Angeles Lakers confirmed they have acquired Kareem Abdul-Jabbar from the Milwaukee Bucks.

"Enhancing" the experience

Three more colleges will sell beer at football games this fall to increase revenue streams, bringing to 21 the number of on-campus stadiums selling beer. That's awesome. I believe It goes without saying that what the college experience needs are more drunk guys at football games.

That's not a joint, that's a LeGarrette Blount

Steelers running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were charged with possession of marijuana last week. Bell was charged with driving under the influence and reportedly told police he didn't know he could get a DUI for being high. Also, could they pass the Doritos?

Cracked crystal

PGA golfer Hunter Mahan accidentally broke the crystal chalice he won after winning The Barclays tournament. He was a little upset, but then he remembered he was just paid $1.44 million for playing golf.

You want me to play where?

The Oakland Raiders received the most votes in an ESPN survey that asked players which team they would play for only if they received double their salary. One current Raiders player said he doesn't believe the poll is accurate and he's willing to bet his doubled salary on it.
