Raiders sign QB EJ Manuel
The acquisition of Manuel likely means the end of quarterback Matt McGloin whose contract expired at the end of the 2016 season. The 27-year-old, who just celebrated his birthday on Sunday, will serve as Derek Carr's backup with the Raiders.

What we do know from Bioware is that the patch will address, "fix black screen / Corsair utility, MP sound, MP F-keys issues". As we reported earlier, the Origin Access/EA Access trial of ME: Andromeda comes with the day one patch baked in on PC, so if you downloaded the trial and buy the full game on Origin, you'll be playing with the day one update. This was a livestream of the game which means there was no editing being done here and the default Sara Ryder featured here has some visual features that are different in the final game with day one patch installed. Kind of confusing, right? At this point it's unclear how much the mixed reviews and the general apathy expressed by some will affect the game's sales, but BioWare and Electronic Arts (the game's publisher) will certainly be taking notes on how to make improvements.
