Sherman Taking Pressure Off Wilson?

When it comes to trash talk, the Denver Broncos’ wide receivers prefer to let the touchdowns speak for themselves.

And with Super Bowl XLVIII a week away, the players who caught many of Peyton Manning’s NFL-record 55 touchdown passes in the regular season have nothing but compliments for the Seattle Seahawks’ defense and, in particular, cornerback Richard Sherman.

Demaryius Thomas, who led the Broncos with 92 receptions, 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns, was asked following Saturday’s practice about the prospect of matching up with Sherman in the title game.

Lakers, Cavaliers talks stall

Talks between the Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers about a trade involving Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum have stalled.
