Packers to Honor Starr This Season with Decal


MILWAUKEE - The Green Bay Packers will wear a No. 15 helmet decal this season to pay tribute to Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr.

The organization announced Friday that it also will honor Starr during halftime of the team's home opener Sept. 15 against the Vikings. Dozens of former Packers, including some of Starr's former teammates, are expected to be in attendance.

Green Bay also is awarding a $250,000 impact grant to the Bart and Cherry Starr Foundation. The grant will benefit four charitable organizations that the Starr family supports.

Starr died on May 26 while recovering from the effects of a stroke suffered in 2014. He was 85.

Starr was the quarterback of the Packers from 1956-1971, winning a total of five titles, including the first two Super Bowls in 1967 and 1968. He was MVP in both games.

Texans abruptly fire GM Brian Gaine

HOUSTON - The Houston Texans have abruptly fired general manager Brian Gaine less than 18 months after he took the job.

The team announced the move Friday with a statement from team owner Cal McNair, who said only that "while the timing may be unusual, this decision was made in the best interest of the organization in our quest to build a championship team."

Gaine was hired to replace Rick Smith in January 2018. The Texans went 11-5 in his first season in charge after he spent the 2017 as vice president of player personnel for the Buffalo Bills.

Jets agree with Douglas to be GM

NEW YORK - The New York Jets have hired Philadelphia Eagles executive Joe Douglas to be their general manager.

Douglas, the Eagles' vice president of player personnel, was one of four candidates interviewed twice by New York for the vacancy. He met with team officials last Saturday and Sunday, and again earlier this week.

Douglas was widely considered the favorite to land the job because he has previous work experience with Jets coach Adam Gase, who served as the team's acting GM and was heavily involved in the search process. Douglas was Chicago's director of college scouting in 2015, when Gase was the Bears' offensive coordinator.

Illinois transfer TE Ford to sit out 2019

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Illinois tight end Luke Ford, a transfer from Georgia, will not be eligible to play this season after the NCAA upheld the denial of his request for a waiver.

The NCAA initially denied Ford's request in April, but the school appealed. Illinois said Friday the appeal had been denied.

Ford was one of the top recruits in the state of Illinois and a highly regarded national prospect in 2018. In January, Ford posted on Twitter he was leaving Georgia for Illinois because of his grandparents' "deteriorating health" and the cost for his parents to watch him play. He is from tiny Carterville, Ill., about two hours southeast of St. Louis. Ford will be eligible to play in 2020. …
