This process right now is different than anything of the stuff I’ve been through before because it’s more individualized right now than anything else, Mayfield said. Normally in the offseason, I’m with the team. We’re working toward one goal together.
Mayfield also apologized for the flag plant. But he said that the arrest in Arkansas in February 2017 is what braced him for the Manziel chatter.

More than anything, it’s rejuvenating that we’re expecting to win now and we’re expecting to contend, Braun said. The challenge of playing a new position — it’s a challenge I’m looking forward to.
During his offseason workouts at Pepperdine University, Braun said he would take ground balls with Rangers third baseman Trevor Plouffe and free-agent third baseman Mike Moustakas.
It didn’t feel as foreign to me as I expected it to, Braun said, adding that he plans to borrow a teammate’s glove until his own are broken in and that he’ll seek out others for advice on playing the new position.
Dmitri Soloviev and Ekaterina Bobrova were the penultimate team, hoping to surpass a season best of 76.33. They scored a 75.47, putting them in fifth place with one team to go. Luca Lanotte Anna Cappelli of Italy came on, with a season best of 75.87. They beat that, with a 76.57, for fifth place to close out the first part of the ice dancing competition.
