As I’m nearing 30, I look back on my dating life and a pattern emerges: My significant others either loved sports or played sports (professionally).

I’ve dated a few professional athletes, and no, I am not a gold digger, nor am I a cheerleader.

I’m an educated woman with her own career who happens to love competitive sports perhaps more than most women.

I am 5 feet 4 inches tall and weigh less than 110 pounds, but on the inside, I am a 6-foot-4, 230-pound football player. In my mind and heart, I was created to be on the football field, but like most other people, my genes have had the last word.

The Patriots made a determined push to keep Solder, and the Texans also were interested. He said the money was all somewhat equal and it just came down to where my family was going to be most comfortable.

This organization is incredible, just the reputation that we know and the reputation that precedes them,” Solder said. At about 2 a.m. we kind of worked out a deal and kind of took our time figuring out what we’re going to do, and we’re so fortunate to be where we’re at.

All are tempting in this pass-happy league, and the Super Bowl champion Eagles showed why such a risk can pay off. Philadelphia pounced on a weak market for ex-Bear Alshon Jeffery and signed him to a one-year, $14 million deal. Jeffery was not dominant, but did add a threat to the Eagles offense with 47 catches for 789 yards and nine touchdowns that added up to a four-year, $52 million extension.

Jeffery was viewed as expendable by the Bears because of a significant injury history that tarnished his ability on the field. And like Jeffery, these three options have warts.

Watkins, too, has a noteworthy injury history. Robinson is currently rehabbing from a torn ACL. That is likely why the Rams and Jaguars, respectively, opted not to use their franchise tags on the one-time No. 1 receivers. But both have shown the ability to be No. 1 receivers in their career.

Hurting Watkins further could be his inability to break out in his first year with the Rams in an offense that was flourishing after years of being with the quarterback-deprived Bills. Watkins thrived intermittently as a deep threat for the Rams, who had two solid underneath receivers in Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods.

Breaking down the four favorites in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes

The Kirk Cousins sweepstakes is a week away from hitting high gear.

Teams can officially negotiate with Cousins’ agent on Monday, and the Redskins quarterback can sign with a new team at 4 p.m. on March 14 though Cousins is expected to visit teams, so this will last beyond the opening bell of free agency.

Here is another factor to consider: taxes. Cousins built a house in Michigan in 2017, so presumably that is where he plans to live in the offseason. Michigan and Minnesota have a reciprocal agreement, according to Robert Raiola, director of the Sports & Entertainment Group at the CPA and consulting firm PKF O’Connor Davies. That means Cousins would not have to pay Minnesota tax, just Michigan. The Michigan tax rate is 4.25. If he signed with another team, he would have to pay tax in that state and Michigan. New Jersey’s tax rate is 8.97 by comparison.

The argument against: The Vikings have a lot of players to pay in the coming years because they have drafted well. Can they sustain this success for the long-term?

The argument for: John Elway is a good recruiter. He can show Cousins his three Super Bowl rings and sell him on how he built a team around Peyton Manning and now he can do it for him. Denver still has a solid defense and good wide receivers.

The argument against: Denver is going to have to make some big cuts to clear cap space. Will its roster still be a strong one when Elway is done? The Broncos’ best players are getting older. Is the window closed on this group?

There was a world-class boxer by the name of Andre Ward, who actually just retired, that our director of player development at Texas A&M, Mikado Hinson, kind of put me on him, said that I remind him a lot of him and kind of have a similar approach to what we do, Kirk said. I started reading up a lot on him and just kind of see how he approached his training and what-not. An article had came out about his recovery and liver shakes was in there. I had never heard of it before, so I thought I should probably just give it a try.

It’s not just straight liver; it has some protein, spinach, vegetables and fruit in there as well. Started drinking that a lot, especially postgame and trying to get back ready for the week. Just helped my muscles recover a lot fast and gave me a lot more energy and what-not. It became part of my recovery. That’s a big thing for me in taking care of my body.

Kirk credits his post-workout recovery, including liver shakes, with helping him never miss a game during his career at A&M.

Vikings are now odds-on favorites to sign Kirk Cousins

Being in the same division with the Patriots, the Jets don’t occupy the top spot too often.

But that’s where oddsmakers had the Jets in the early pursuit of Kirk Cousins with the team set to lavish him with a significant deal. However, as the offseason has progressed, the Vikings have surged to become the favorites in the Cousins sweepstakes.

In Bovada’s Feb. 19 odds, the Jets were a 2/3 favorite followed by the Broncos, Cardinals and Bills. But in the two weeks that have passed since, the Vikings have bolted from off the board to a clear 1/3 favorite, with the Broncos and Jets running second and third.

Only months after the Saints came back to New Orleans, Benson was greeted like a conquering hero at a team-sponsored fan event when the club drafted USC star Reggie Bush.

The Saints became a source of inspiration during the tough early days of post-Katrina rebuilding. In storybook style, they improved from 3-13 in 2005 to 10-6 under new coach Sean Payton, then advanced to the franchise’s first NFC championship game.

Smoker, who was hiking with his grandson Eli, fell some 20 feet onto a rock and sustained multiple serious injuries.

It felt like he was in the air for 10 seconds. I had never seen anything quite like that in my life as far as the trauma and the sound. We were in shock, McCaffrey said, per the team’s website.

The group, which included his brothers Dylan and Max and family friends Michael Mann and Brooke Pettet, sprung into action.

McCaffrey says he dialed 9-1-1, while Mann and another onlooker tended to Smoker. The other hiker kept Smoker’s head still while Mann did chest compressions. Eli Smoker, 13, tried to reach his father, who was in San Diego for his 15th wedding anniversary.

Everybody stepped up, McCaffrey said. I called 9-1-1, and it felt like an eternity. It felt like we were up there waiting for four hours. But I looked back at my call log and it took 11 minutes before the paramedics came. Amazing what those guys did.
