“Ryan Tannehill gets 100 million… Dak Prescott and Derrick Henry gets Franchise Tagged?!! The Texans Trades DeAndre Hopkins who is arguably the best WR in the NFL?! (Expletive) might have to start drug testing these Owners and GMs!!! Carry on…,” Perkins tweeted.

-- MLB and the Major League Baseball Players Association announced on Monday they will team up to provide meals for children who depend on their schools for meals, but whose schools have closed due to the coronavirus. 

“Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) today announced a joint donation of $1 million to help fight hunger as a result of school closures and quarantines stemming from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic,” the statement reads. “The donation will be split evenly among Feeding America and Meals on Wheels America. Feeding America will distribute funds to local member food banks in high need areas across the United States to help feel children and families impacted by current, and potentially extended, school closures and other disruptions as a result of the epidemic. Meals on Wheels America will use the emergency funds to boost the organizational capacity of the network to provide in-home meals to vulnerable senior citizens during this time of crisis. This joint donation represents an ongoing commitment by MLB and the MLBPA to provide support to causes that assist vulnerable populations.”
