The Mets will designate Harvey for assignment after he refused to accept a minor-league assignment, general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters Friday.

The next stop for Witten and his diamond-encrusted football will likely be the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The 11-time Pro Bowler ranks fourth all-time in career receptions, and no one will be shocked if Witten is becomes a first-ballot Hall of Famer in five years.
The Cowboys trust Dak Prescott to both push the ball downfield and show touch on shorter, safer throws. But the QB needs some of that burden eased with either a young wideout who can run well after the catch or a big-bodied No. 1 who can replace Bryant.
Ridley and Moore are excellent options for the former type of receiver. Ridley might not have ideal top-end speed, but he’s good at creating separation both on the perimeter and in the middle, and he can catch everything. Moore can take over games with volume and can take any play to the house.
Gettleman also proved he has no fear of drafting running backs in the top 10 when he picked Christian McCaffrey at No. 8 overall with the Panthers last year before he was fired as GM. McCaffrey had 1,086 combined rushing and receiving yards as a rookie.
Barkley is extra valuable and appealing as a back who can stay on the field in passing downs; he had 54 receptions for 632 yards last season. Over his three years at Penn State, he amassed 3,843 rushing yards, 1,195 receiving yards and 51 combined touchdowns. He can do for Manning and the Giants as much or more than what Gurley did for Goff and the Rams last season (2,093 combined yards, 19 touchdowns) in helping Los Angeles to a division title.
