Putin headed for easy re-election in Russia's presidential race - 6 more years
Navalny and his supporters had called for an election boycott but the extent of its success could not immediately be gauged. But while elections are a serious matter, there were those who took the time to have fun while casting their vote.

The Jets have plenty of money available, especially considering how much they had set aside to make a run at Kirk Cousins. His best season came in 2015 when he caught 64 passes for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns. Count the Jets among the teams interested. NY has depth at the position, led by Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa and Jermaine Kearse, but another impact pass catcher couldn't hurt. Robby Anderson, last year's No. 1 receiver, has run into off-field troubles and is proving that he can not be relied on.

But, if the Saints are seriously pursuing Hurns, his comments to the radio station on Tuesday indicate that having Drew Brees could help. The 33-year-old Lewis has 375 receptions for 4,502 yards with 33 touchdowns in 170 career games since being selected by Jacksonville with the 28th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are thinning out their receiving corps.

VAR will be used at World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation , says FIFA
This was decided at the Federation Internationale de Football Association council meeting in Bogota, Colombia. Until now the World Cup hosts were selected exclusively by the football's body Executive Committee.

Jermaine Kearse, acquired from the Seattle Seahawks last season, could develop a solid one-two punch with the returning Quincy Enunwa, who missed all of last season with a neck injury. He dealt with a high ankle sprain previous year.

Lewis reeled in 24 receptions for 318 yards and five touchdowns in 2017 and also had four catches for 21 yards and a score in the playoffs.

With Anderson in a tenuous legal situation, the Jets have recently done their homework on free agent wide receivers.
