Morton: I remember throwing the pitch to Seager, and I didn’t even expect him to swing at it because it was pretty far inside.

After spending about a trillion dollars in order to build a roster that finally was good enough to contend in 2017, the Jacksonville Jaguars weren’t supposed to be major players on the free-agent or trade markets this offseason. But one of the most talented teams in football wasn’t satisfied, so early in free agency the Jags made Andrew Norwell the highest-paid interior offensive lineman in NFL history.

I remember the ball going to the right side, and thinking, ‘Oh, wait, there are two outs.’ Altuve fields it and throws it, and that’s three outs. I look back to home plate, forgetting that McCann would be backing up first base over towards our dugout. I’m looking back toward home plate going, ‘Where’s Mac ‘ Then I look up and I see him.

Brian and I have known each other for a long time. He caught me in the Area Code Games in 2001. He more than likely caught one of my first starts in pro baseball, and he caught my big league debut [in Atlanta] in 2008. It’s been a cool journey for both of us to come back and play together again.

Jerry Jones expects to meet with Dez Bryant in the next week, the Cowboys owner confirmed Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings. The Cowboys are expected to ask the receiver to reduce his salary number from $12.5 million for 2018 as well as his cap number of $16.5 million.

We need to talk, Jones said, via multiple tweets. I certainly have not had a thought about talking with him that did not anticipate him being with us.

Officials from the New England Patriots spoke with free-agent quarterback Johnny Manziel before and after Texas A&M’s pro day Tuesday, the Boston Herald’s Karen Guregian reported.

Manziel threw to Aggies receivers during the event, which came less than a week after the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner took part in the University of San Diego’s pro day. ESPN.com’s Eric D. Williams reported the Patriots were one of 13 NFL teams at the Toreros’ pro day Thursday.
