When Jay Cutler isn’t on the football field, he’s playing Mr. Mom to his three kids with Kristin Cavallari.

“I have a lot on my plate, yeah, I do. I honestly could not do it without my husband, Jay,” the “True Roots” cookbook author told Page Six on Tuesday. “He luckily is unemployed at the moment. He played football for many, many years and he’s finally done. Not 100 percent, but we’re hopeful that he’s done. And he takes the kids to school, and he picks them up from school, which really frees up my day. He’s at home with the kids himself right now and I never have to worry about it. So as corny and cheesy as it is, I honestly couldn’t do it without him.”

Cavallari, 31, and Cutler, 34, are parents to daughter Saylor James, 2, and sons Camden Jack, 5, and Jaxon Wyatt, 3, together. They married in 2013.

I didn’t know. I was naive at the time. I was in awe of the bigness of working for a network. Sometimes when I think of that story, how sweet it was of my dad to do that, I get a little teary-eyed. So there are not many things in my career that I regret, but that’s one of ’em.

No more.

The free-agent quarterback agreed Sunday to a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Chargers, ESPN first reported, with whom he will compete with Cardale Jones to be Philip Rivers’ backup.

Smith, still only 27, was a second-round pick of the Jets in 2013, but he never proved himself in green. He was set to be the starting quarterback for the 2015 season before an August punch from then-teammate IK Enemkpali broke his jaw. He never reclaimed his spot, and left the Jets after the 2016 season.

Matt Carpenter has quietly become one of the game’s best hitters in terms of plate discipline. His 16.5 percent chase rate since the start of last season ranks second to only Joey Votto’s (14.1). And it’s not just chase rate: Last season, Carpenter was top-five in the majors in swing rate and walk rate, too. — Langs

Nolan Arenado dropped the gloves on Wednesday — then dropped an appeal of his five-game suspension on Saturday. Arenado will miss the entire three-game series in Pittsburgh after charging the mound last week against the Padres. On the bright side, Charlie Blackmon returned from a four-game absence on Saturday and promptly homered off Max Scherzer. — Casellajets_096

Johnny Manziel’s return to pro football might still seem like a longshot, but he’s definitely working toward his goal, no matter how lofty.

The former first-round pick threw at a scouting showcase for the second time in as many weeks Tuesday, serving as Christian Kirk ‘s quarterback at Texas A&M’s pro day. In the process, the 25-year-old Manziel grabbed headlines — and multiple encounters with representatives of NFL teams.

Manziel met with the New England Patriots before and after his participation in Texas A&M’s pro day, the Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe reported. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported New England wasn’t the lone team to speak with the man formerly known as Johnny Football. A considerable amount of other teams also conversed with the quarterback on Tuesday, per Rapoport.

Because of this, the NFL also strives to protect the perception of the integrity of the game. Gambling, the league believes, only hurts that perception.

State-sponsored gambling not only adds to the pressure on our coaches and players, but creates suspicion and cynicism toward every on-the-field mistake that affects the betting line, Goodell wrote in a letter to Delaware Gov. Jack Markell in 2009.

We sort of threw him in the fire, Roberts said. He executed pitches, so his stuff really plays. From what I’ve seen so far, there’s a lot of emotion, but he’s shown that he can channel it in the right way.

It was just one game, but it’s not hard to envision Chargois becoming this year’s version of Morrow.

Everyone is trying to become more efficient, Chargois said, having clearly already adapted to the official team lexicon. Whether it’s a teammate or a coach trying to help out, we’re always trying to get better. It’s one thing I love about this team — it’s a great learning environment.

As for this year’s version of Taylor, how about Kemp After he was acquired, it was widely assumed the Dodgers would either flip Kemp to another team or set him adrift. But Kemp relished returning to his old team, and just wanted a chance. And the team said it’d give him one.

John Sullivan is returning to the Rams

The Rams are keeping center John Sullivan on a two-year deal, the team announced Friday night. The deal is worth $15 million, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

So along with bringing back their own backup safety Bradley McDougald, it’s hardly the kind of move to make people forget Kam Chancellor (who may not again, at least there) or Earl Thomas (who could be available in trade). Oh and by the way, they released Richard Sherman, traded Michael Bennett, and defensive end Cliff Avril&s likely done because of a neck injury.

They did sign pass-rusher Barkevious Mingo, so there’s that. And they also countered the loss of Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson on offense by bringing in Ed Dickson and Jaron Brown.

Raiders have reached agreement with Tank Carradine

The Raiders are padding their defensive line by agreeing to a free-agent deal with former 49ers defensive end Tank Carradine, according to a report from The Sacramento Bee.

Carradine reportedly visited the Raiders’ facility in Alameda on Thursday but left without signing a contract. He would be the first outside defensive lineman acquired in this free agency period by the Raiders, who also re-signed their own defensive tackle Justin Ellis to a three-year contract.

Winning the offseason is only important if a team can translate its transactions into regular-season victories. Otherwise, the process is pointless.

Some will succeed in this endeavor. Others will fail. But every team is looking for opportunities to improve its roster through free agency.

A year ago, the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Calais Campbell to a four-year, $60 million contract. Campbell provided the best season of his career and helped mold the Jaguars into Super Bowl contenders. The opposite happened after the Cleveland Browns made Kevin Zeitler the league’s high-paid guard (at the time). Zeitler’s play didn’t amount to much on a 0-16 roster featuring an unprepared rookie quarterback.

Pugh played both left guard and right tackle in his time with the Giants. Health, not his overall performance, has been the biggest question mark associated with Pugh.

He ended the 2017 season on injured reserve with a back injury and has missed 13 games over the last two seasons.

Teams search far and wide for quality starting left tackles. Teams that find them pay them handsomely. Teams that don’t must overpay to get one.

In that sense, it’s understandable that the Giants wrote a big check to lure Nate Solder out of New England. He’ll lock down the left tackle position and give New York a piece to build around on the offensive line.

But the Giants paid a big price to acquire a 29-year-old left tackle who is good but far from great. Solder is now the highest-paid offensive tackle (in average annual value) in the NFL, and he has as many Pro Bowl appearances as you and I. In an era of watered-down Pro Bowl selections, that’s kind of incredible.

Obviously, the Giants didn’t love the incoming class of offensive tackles and decided to move aggressively for the top option in free agency. Still, it’s unlikely that Solder will live up to the expectations of his massive new deal.patriots_380

Sheary, Crosby lead Penguins past Flyers and into 1st place

Malkin’s goal was an empty-netter with 1:41 remaining.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks helped provided on-ice commentary during the first period. … Pittsburgh improved to 3-0 against the Flyers this season. The teams wrap up their regular-season series on March 25 in Pittsburgh. …

The Kings (36-25-5) have had four days to recover from a stunning 5-3 defeat to the Chicago Blackhawks last Saturday afternoon at Staples Center. The defeat to the Central Division’s last place team snapped a three-game winning streak and was due to undisciplined play which led to four Chicago third-period goals in a game that Los Angeles clearly controlled after two periods.

Los Angeles coach John Stevens normally stoic in his post season press conferences was visibly angered at his team play in the final period which included an unsportsmanlike penalty to Drew Doughty that keyed the Chicago comeback.

The best first-year expansion team in NHL history, the Vegas Golden Knights, are finally struggling and the Detroit Red Wings welcome back a familiar face.

Vegas (42-19-5) visits the Detroit Red Wings (26-29-11) at 7:30 p.m., on Thursday at Little Caesars Arena.

He faces his former team, the Red Wings, for the first time since they dealt him to Vegas for three draft choices at the Feb. 26, trading deadline. Tatar, who has 17 goals and 29 points for the season, got his first goal as a Golden Knight — which was the game winner — in Vegas’ 3-2 road win over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.

“It feels good to contribute and get the monkey off my back,” said Tatar after the game. He has played four games with the Golden Knights.

Detroit will be without center Frans Nielsen, who left the Red Wings’ 6-5 overtime road loss to the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night late in the first period after suffering a concussion due to a high hit from Boston center David Backes.packers_160

Statistics strongly suggest the Rams are more than merely another fluke this season through the first month.

“I’ve made Coach Tomlin look bad, and that is my fault, and that is my fault only,” Villanueva said. “I made my teammates look bad, and that is my fault, and my fault only. And I made the Steelers also look bad, and that is my fault, and my fault only. So unwillingly, I made a mistake.’’

The mistake here is the fact that, in the aftermath of this mess, no one from the Steelers has publicly stated his support of Villanueva, stated that he has nothing to apologize for.

“I talked to my teammates about the situation, hopefully they understand it,’’ he said. “If they don’t, I still have to live with it, because the nature of this debate is causing a lot of very heated reaction from fans from players, and it’s undeserving to all of the players and coaches from this organization.’’

And if the preseason is any indication of things to come, the 49ers might find themselves with one of the league’s best young defenders. Here’s Foster on the very first play of Sunday’s game against the Vikings:

There are plenty of concerns about the 49ers offense, primarly because it’s unclear if Brian Hoyer is anything other than a short-term solution to lingering questions about the quarterback position. But if you’re looking for reasons for optimism, Hoyer and Marquise Goodwin — who is literally a world-class sprinter — hooked up on a 46-yard yard touchdown pass on the offense’s first drive.

Harold Landry, OLB, Boston College. Bill Belichick, here’s your new Jamie Collins. While Landry is nowhere near the run defender as Collins, he would give the Patriots a boost in getting after the quarterback, which they showed is a concern by bringing in linebacker James Harrison late in the season. Landry can give them that type of player regularly moving forward and should be an excellent chess piece for the Genius.

Billy Price, G, Ohio State. Assuming the Vikings figure out what to do with their free-agent quarterbacks heading into the draft, Price would be a great target for them as a potential replacement for Joe Berger inside. Price would be one of the better starting centers in the league, so the Vikings have the option of sticking him at the pivot immediately and having Pat Elflein compete at a guard spot.

I am troubled by the President’s recent comments about our league and our players.

Smith went 10 of 11 for 111 yards. That should wrap up the Giants’ backup quarterback competition. Then again, Johnson was also impressive. He started 8 of 10 for 99 yards and a touchdown. Webb completed 8 of 14 passes for 103 yards.

No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky, the best quarterback on the Bears’ roster, likely won’t be starting Week 1 considering Mike Glennon was held out of Thursday night’s game. But by getting the starting nod against the Browns, Trubisky was given a chance to submit one final argument.

“Sports in America have the unique ability to bring people from all walks of life and from different points of view together to work toward or root for a common goal, and the Indianapolis Colts are proud to be a part of that tradition in our home city and state,” he said. “The vast majority of players in the NFL — especially those who have worn and continue to wear the Horseshoe — have donated millions of dollars to charities, raised money for those affected by recent hurricanes, created charitable foundations, visited schools, mentored students, worked in homeless shelters, cleaned up parks, and put in hours of their personal time toward improving their communities and the lives of those around them.”

The Eagles clinched the NFC’s top seed with the triumph Monday night over the Raiders. But they looked like anything but a Super Bowl team. The defense was much improved after struggling so badly against the Giants, but fill-in QB Nick Foles was shaky and the offense was unimpressive. The Eagles appear extremely vulnerable heading into the postseason.

The Ravens made it far tougher than it needed to be Saturday against the Colts. But at least they got the victory. A win Sunday against the Bengals gets them back into the AFC playoffs after a two-year drought. That’s what this season was all about.

The Los Angeles Kings took advantage of a five-minute power play and rolled to a big win against a Pacific Division opponent.

Marian Gaborik, Dustin Brown and Adrian Kemp scored during the lengthy man advantage, and Jonathan Quick made 32 saves for his third shutout of the season to lead the Kings to a 5-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.

The Oilers got the power play after Oilers forward Patrick Maroon was given a major penalty for a hit to the head on Kings defenseman Drew Doughty late in the second period.

Brown said getting payback for the hit was a motivator.

“I think the response was there,” Ovechkin said. “I think everybody kind of took it to the next level in their game. (The thinking was) we don’t deserve to lose the points.

They expect more from us and we expect more from ourselves.

I think Darvish signs first, if only because of the price tag Boras has slapped on Arrieta and Boras’ track record of waiting until January for the market to evolve. It’s a close call, but I’d prefer Arrieta because I would feel more comfortable putting the ball in his hand in a big game or in the postseason.

Maybe it’s unfair to question Darvish based on two horrendous World Series outings, but scouts and evaluators had questions about his ability to perform under extreme pressure even before he imploded against Houston in October. If I’m giving someone $150 million, I want to make sure he’s ready to embrace the big stage. I have concerns about how well Arrieta will hold up physically as he approaches his mid-30s, but he keeps himself in great condition, and he’s as competitive as it gets. — Crasnick

Goff has a lot more balance and support, both offensively and defensively, and the big win over the Saints was key to having an extra cushion for the final five games.

Ben, as a first time head coach, continued up until this morning to do everything in his power to give us a chance to win. I know the public perception of both these men is not positive, but within these walls, you could not ask for two better professionals.”

Added Tisch: “This has been an extremely difficult and disappointing season. Unfortunately, there are no easy answers or quick fixes. And John and I were confronted with making the tough decisions of today.

“We know how frustrated our fans are. Our focus now is on developing and improving our football team so that our fans can enjoy the winning team they expect and deserve.”
