A day after the Mavericks declined Nowitzki’s $5 million team option to create additional salary-cap space in pursuit of DeAndre Jordan, Dallas is expected to re-sign Nowitzki with the remaining $5 million of cap space, Yahoo Sports reports.

The Dallas Mavericks will likely utilize remaining $5M in salary cap space to re-sign Paul George Jersey franchise cornerstone Dirk Nowitzki, league sources tell Yahoo. Nowitzki’s $5M team option was declined before start of free agency to give Dallas flexibility.

It needs someone who could forcefully and convincingly tell everyone what the NFL stands for. That the NFL won’t be bullied by anyone. That its players are decent and hard-working men who earned their Lamborghinis and give their time and money to the less fortunate. It could use a Steve Kerr.

Or, it could use the old Roger Goodell.

Goodell came into the league as an ass-kicker. Now, he’s an ass-kisser.

As one longtime team official told me recently, I don’t recognize this Roger.

Righthander Jake Jewell underwent successful right ankle surgery Friday. Jewell broke the ankle as he ran in to cover home plate Wednesday in a game against the Red Sox.

The team estimated a six-month recovery time for Jewell.

Also Friday, shortstop Zack Cozart had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The team estimated a six- to eight-month recovery for Cozart.

Perriman is perhaps the biggest first-round bust in team history, and he is due a $649,485 bonus on the Roger Clemens Jersey third day of Baltimore’s training camp. That means the No. 26 overall pick in the 2015 draft could be traded or released this summer. Baltimore added Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead, all of whom are ahead of Perriman on the depth chart. Perriman’s career has been derailed by injuries, inconsistency and dropped passes, a habit that has continued in offseason practices. Jamison Hensley
