do the lions want to trade darius Slay?
The Detroit Lions have spoken to "multiple teams," according to Adam Schefter about trading their star cornerback (and the only good player on the team) Darius Slay. Hehe.
This sounds an awful lot like a "someone on the staff leaked this info just to see how everyone would feel about this" type of vibe. I'll take a guess and say this won't go over well with Lions fans, either.
mike tomlin defends his backup qb.
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, who usually has an "Imma stay out of it" attitude when it comes to issues like this with the media, backed his backup QB Mason Rudolph who claimed he didn't, under any circumstances, do the thing that Myles Garrett accused him of.
I will say, I like how Tomlin defended his player, while not putting down the other or accusing him of anything back -- more people should take that advice, imo.
jj watt got married this weekend.
One of the best people in the NFL, JJ Watt and soccer player and badass Kealia Ohai got married this past weekend in the Bahamas, and it looked like the best time ever.
rivers will 100% be a free agent in a month or so.
There was plenty of speculation earlier this year, and basically all signs pointed to YES, but both the Los Angeles Chargers and QB Philip Rivers confirmed that the two will part ways this offseason. Which means, if you're following along, Rivers will become a free agent.
Plenty of teams salivate over a veteran QB like this, so Rivers will 100% be signed somewhere. The ideal place would be a starting/mentoring position, and there will likely be plenty of those -- Cincy, for one. -eyeball emoji-
"brady is hitting the market this offseason."
This shit is in quotes because that's what they want you to believe. Tom Brady is not going ANYWHERE except the New England Patriots until the day he dies. Write this down, laminate it, and put it on your wall and it will be true when September rolls around.
The media just wants you to talk about it. That's it. It's not happening. End of story.

Jags will play back-to-back games in london.
The Jacksonville Jaguars announced on Tuesday that they will be the first team in NFL history to play two games, back-to-back outside of the United States. Their home for two weeks? Wembley Stadium.
This sounds fun, I guess, it looks great for the whole ~international~ thing the NFL has been going for lately. Only one problem: Jaguars fans, specifically season ticket holders are pretty much cheated out of two home games. Fans are getting discounts on their tickets, but still -- the experience (AKA the tailgate) is such a Sunday tradition in Jacksonville, that I wouldn't blame fans if they didn't renew.
Not to mention the rumors of moving entirely that will be sparked on this news, but I'm not getting into that right now.
in more jags news -- trent baalke!
Tuesday was official Jaguars News Day. The Jacksonville Jaguars hired former San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke, for some reason.
If the former news wasn't enough for fans to not renew their season tickets, this will for sure be it.
the lombardi luge is my new favorite thing.
Kansas City Chiefs tight end and brand-new Super Bowl Champion Travis Kelce took drinking out of the Stanley Cup to a new level = drinking off of the Lombardi Trophy.
First of all, I'm having a hard time believing that this is the first time anyone has done this. Second of all, I have added this to the top of my bucket list.
Chiefs will host their parade on wednesday.
The Kansas City Chiefs did indeed beat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV this weekend, and as a result, the team will host their traditional Super Bowl parade in Kansas City, Missouri (not Kansas). All the deets:
I assume all Chiefs fans will handle this celebration calmly and rationally.
super bowls should only be played in florida.
Next year's Super Bowl will also be held in Florida -- this time in Tampa Bay. The Super Bowl handoff ceremony took place on Monday.
It was cool how they tried to make, like Minnesota and stuff happen, but the Super Bowl should be in a warm weather state for the rest of time. That's just a fact.
katie sowers the goat.
They might have lost the Super Bowl, but San Francisco 49ers assistant coach Katie Sowers won. She won for every girl out there who wants to be involved in football -- all it takes is one.
vic beasley is no more in atl.
The Atlanta Falcons announced on Monday that they will not try to re-sign defensive end Vic Beasley this offseason. And I'll just leave this here.
The best super bowl celebration of all time.
After winning the Super Bowl, Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Derrick Nnadi paid off over a hundred dogs' adoption fees at a local Kansas City shelter.
I'm not crying, we're all crying.
vernon davis retires.
Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis officially announced his retirement on Monday, after semi-announcing it in a Super Bowl commercial with Rob Gronkowski.
of course gronk was asked about brady.
We can't seem to escape the New England Patriots this week even though they aren't in the Super Bowl. It is truly mind-boggling.
Reporters (of course) asked former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski about what QB Tom Brady should do this offseason, and Gronk advocated for Brady to test the free agent waters.
a big retirement in new england.
Not the one the world wants -- but Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia announced his retirement on Tuesday.
Imagine being stuck on that team for that long. Jesus.
bill o'brien hires.... himself as texans gm.
The Houston Texans are missing a general manager no longer -- they just threw out the feelers and hired within. Head coach Bill O'Brien is now also the general manager. What could possibly go wrong?
