Elite Alexander Steen Jersey Who thought Nikola Jokic would turn into one of the future stars of the NBA? Nobody — and that includes the Denver Nuggets. They drafted him No. 41 overall in 2014, then played him out of position to start this season. Finally, on Dec. 15, they realized they needed to build their team around him.
What a journey it’s been. Since that date, the Nuggets have the NBA’s best offense and are the favorites to earn the No. 8 seed in the West. And it’s all because they’ve built their team around Jokic’s beautiful, unique game.
In signing free agent defensive tackle Ricky Jean-Francois to a low-risk, one-year deal, the Packers add some veteran knowledge to a young group.
The Redskins released Jean Francois on March 15 in an expected move because he would have counted $4 million against the salary cap in 2017 and was going to be a backup at best. The Redskins saved $3 million in cap space with the release.
Jean Francois spent two years with Washington, starting six games in 2016 and recording 1.5 sacks. But the Redskins weren’t pleased with their defensive line, allowing another starter, Chris Baker, to sign with Tampa Bay via free agency.

Jean Francois, 30, also spent two years with the Colts and four with the 49ers, who drafted him in the seventh round (No. 244 overall) of the 2009 draft.
In 109 games (36 starts), Jean Francois has 12 sacks, one forced fumble and 164 tackles.
