Leadoff with Lee 4.1.15 #Buckeyes #Mariota #TigerWoods #AstonVilla

- The NCAA has Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller on their radar. Last month Miller posted a picture on his Instagram account with a trainer and a table full of Advocare supplements. The NCAA allows athletes to be self employed, but they cannot use their status as an athlete for promotional use. Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer did stated yesterday that he has been told that Miller will not lose any eligibility over the secondary infraction. It had also been reported that the NCAA may require a apology either in person or letter.

- Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant underwent successful bone graft surgery on his 5th metatarsal of his right foot yesterday. Now that the surgery has taken place his timetable to return is 4-6 months,which brings him returning in October at the latest.

- I'm not sure if Tiger is eyeing a return, but Tiger Woods played a 18 hole practice round at Augusta his agent confirmed yesterday. Woods has not committed to playing in the Master's Tournament next week, but he is an invited guest who requires no commitment to play. Tiger Woods has won the Masters tournament 4 times, with his last Masters championship in 2005.

- Former Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub has signed a 1-year, $3M contract to backup Joe Flacco in Baltimore.

- The NFL moved the free agent deadline from June 1st to May 12th. After June 1st, unrestricted free agents signed by other teams don't count toward the compensatory draft pick formula. By moving the date to May 12th, it allows teams to sign free agents without helping their old team and hurting their new one.

- Marcus Mariota announced that he will not attend the NFL draft in Chicago and will be home in Hawaii with his friends and family. Jameis Winston will also no be in attendance.

- Former Cleveland Browns owner Randy Lerner is set to sell Aston Villa for $223M. The deal is contingent that Villa remain in the Premier League. Lerner Purchased Villa in 2007 for $94M. He also sold the Browns to Jimmy Haslam in 2012 for $1B.
