Call him James Brad-petty. Former Giants corner James Bradberry is signing a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, sources confirm, staying in the NFC East with eyes on sticking it to the team that recently cut him. “I believe the scheme is a perfect fit for me,” Bradberry, 28, told NFL insider Josina Anderson via text. It’s a one-year contract for up to $10 million, according to NFL Network, which first reported the deal, pending a physical. The contract will pay Bradberry $7.5 million, including $7.25 million guaranteed, plus another $2.5 million in incentives, per ESPN.

Eduardo Escobar watched a Steven Matz changeup sail into the center of the zone on Tuesday at Citi Field. His bat remained frozen just above his shoulder. Escobar was behind 0-1 in the count, but he didn’t waste time attacking the next pitch. Another changeup from Matz, but this time it moved outside. Escobar got to it before the catcher could, and he watched the ball glide past the infield dirt, then beyond the outfielders, before it finally landed in the opposing bullpen. Escobar lifted his right arm in the air as the ball touched down. It was only Escobar’s second home run of the season, but his arm was raised because the monkey was off his back. Escobar went 3-for-7 with a home run, an RBI and a walk across both games of Tuesday’s doubleheader with the St. Louis Cardinals. “I felt good just because I’ve been working a lot with the hitting coaches,” Escobar said of what was going through his mind after that homer. “To have that moment after the tough times that I’ve been … [Read more...] about Eduardo Escobar showing signs of heating up; Brandon Nimmo dodges an injury

For a decade as a young adult, Hannah Wyatt Sultan struggled with depression that debilitated her everyday life. After many rounds of different antidepressants and therapy, Sultan still wasn’t experiencing remission from the disease — and she was getting frustrated. “You lose trust in yourself and your own abilities,” Sultan said. Sultan, as she later learned, had what’s known as treatment-resistant depression, which wasn’t alleviated by antidepressants or psychotherapy. It wasn’t until 2020 that the Denver resident, now 28, was able to land on a treatment — electroconvulsive therapy — that worked for her. But Sultan is not alone in struggling with treatment-resistant depression — a condition spotlighted by the death last month of country music star Naomi Judd , who had acknowledged she suffered from a severe form of the condition and was an outspoken advocate who tried to shed light on treatment-resistant mental illnesses. People are considered to have … [Read more...] about Naomi Judd’s death shines spotlight on treatment-resistant depression. Here’s what can help.
