If the Dallas Cowboys part ways with Amari Cooper, ESPN’s Louis Riddick sees the New England Patriots as an ideal landing spot.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cowboys are “likely” to release Cooper before his $20 million contract becomes guaranteed on March 20. On Sunday morning’s SportsCenter, via NESN’s Adam London, Riddick suggested Foxborough as the best destination for the 27-year-old wide receiver.

“Yeah, I think this has New England Patriots written all over it ’cause they really need someone who has No. 1-wide receiver capability in the form of Amari Cooper,” Riddick said.

New England hasn’t had a 1,000-yard receiver in the last two years. Cooper, meanwhile, has broken that barrier five times in seven seasons. Even last year’s underwhelming 865 yards came just one yard shy of Patriots-leader Jakobi Meyers.

On SportsCenter Sunday morning, ESPN College Football Analyst Trevor Matich listed his top four Heisman contenders after Saturday’s slate of games.

New Jersey Devils defenseman P. K. Subban will join ESPN as an analyst for the remainder of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports

Subban will make his debut Wednesday on SportsCenter, according to Marchand. 

It’s an excellent move for ESPN, and for the sport of hockey as a whole. Subban is one of the league’s most gregarious players, he is an exceptional interview, and often provides a perspective that most hockey players rarely entertain in the mainstream. 

Subban recorded five goals and 19 points with the Devils in 2021, a down year for the 2012-13 Norris Trophy winner. 

ESPN entered a seven-year, $2.8 billion partnership with the NHL in March, allowing the network to broadcast four of the next

ESPN fires former K-State student Kelly Stewart as betting analyst for deleted tweets

Kelly Stewart, a former Kansas State student and Manhattan native, saw her career as a betting analyst with ESPN come to an end before it began on Friday.

Less than a month after ESPN announced that it was hiring Stewart to share her opinions on sports gambling shows such as “Daily Wager” and “SportsCenter,” the network has decided to part ways with her after discovering homophobic tweets that she sent and later deleted nearly a decade ago.

“ESPN has notified me that they terminated my contract due to deleted tweets from 2012,” Stewart wrote on social media. “I know the words I used are unacceptable and hurtful and I am terribly sorry for this lapse in judgment, but I cannot apologize for standing up to the vicious attacks I, and so many other female personalities, endure from anonymous online trolls.”

“While I regret the language I tweeted over a decade
