In sports briefs from Thursday, the French Open schedule is pushed back a week due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Paul George's 33 points lead the Clippers past the Suns in a matchup of two of the Western Conference's top teams.

A Seahawks career that began with the highest of expectations — comparisons to Richard Sherman — then was sidetracked by his involvement in a well-publicized criminal investigation came to a quiet end Monday when cornerback Quinton Dunbar agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions.

Consider that of the top 100 free agents as listed by NFL.com, all but 21 are signed — and stop us if you've heard this before, but at the top of the list is Jadeveon Clowney, at number seven. Others include Seahawks K.J. Wright (44) and Quinton Dunbar (83) and former Seahawk Richard Sherman (51).

Two-and-a-half weeks after releasing Carlos Dunlap in a salary-cap-cutting move, the Seahawks and Dunlap agreed to a two-year deal. Dunlap’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, confirmed that the contract is worth up to $16.6 million with $8.5 million guaranteed.

The 2019 NFL draft featured one of the best and deepest classes of wide receivers in recent memory. Eight receivers were selected ahead of DK Metcalf, who went to the Seahawks with the last pick of the second round.

The NFL announced on Thursday that receiver Josh Gordon has been conditionally reinstated and will be eligible to play in the final two games of the regular season.

DK Metcalf probably didn’t need any more motivation to play in Philadelphia. He already was sufficiently fired up to prove to the Eagles they made a mistake by passing over him in the 2019 NFL draft.

An upset gave the Seahawks sole possession of first place in the NFC West on Sunday with the 5.5-point underdogs 49ers doing Seattle a huge favor by going into Los Angeles and beating the Rams on a last-play field goal, 23-20. Now, to keep from having that sole possession taken away, the Seahawks need to avoid an upset Monday night at Philadelphia.
