When will this end? Arizona Cardinals GM Steve Keim was asked if Josh Rosen was their QB (seriously, again) and he responded, " Yeah he is right now. For sure." Stopppppp this.
The Atlanta Falcons can't even pay their stadium workers. SMH. Hundreds of stadium employees who worked the Super Bowl have not been paid after working overtime for the event, after their staffing company closed literally the day after. Somehow, I'm blaming Matt Ryan for this and you can't stop me.
We all knew this would happen, but the Baltimore Ravens are interested in bringing back LB Terrell Suggs for his 17th season.
The company that operates several Buffalo sports teams including the Buffalo Bills are making changes to their executive positions. Not entirely sure what this entails to be honest with you.
Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen has been riddled with injuries the past few seasons, and he has a serious decision to make this offseason. He has big money offers from both ESPN and Fox Sports to join the broadcasting side of the sports world. If I were him, I'd take this in a heartbeat, for what it's worth.
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy explained how this offseason will put last season's losses behind them and use them to build forward --
Former Cincinnati Bengals CB Adam 'Pacman' Jones was arrested again, for those who are playing the drinking game. He was charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication, intimidation, and resisting arrest. Sounds about right.
Former Cleveland Browns great Johnny Manziel (the 'great' was sarcasm for those of you who can't tell) was cut from his CFL team with a made-up name. The team proceeded to own him in their statement of his release.
The Dallas Cowboys are continuing to support Randy Gregory, despite his being suspended for like the twelfth time. "The way it’s been explained to me is relapse is part of rehab. I think that’s something he’ll continue to work through. Unfortunately, the NFL has this policy that sometimes suspends players in these situations. But we’ll continue to try to support him. I know he’s working very hard to get his issues under control."
The Denver Broncos are exercising the options on both WR Emmanuel Sanders and DE Derek Wolfe. Sanders is a good complement to Super Bowl MVP QB and Champion Joseph Flacco, if I do say so myself.
The Detroit Lions have a decision to make when it comes to G TJ Lang. GM Bob Quinn said he's in the process of evaluating players, and Lang, "is in that category of someone that we’re still kind of going through the process of thinking about what we want to do and kind of talking to T.J. a little bit here and there."
At the Scouting Combine on Wednesday new Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur praised his rookie WR trio. "All three of those guys, there’s a reason they were drafted. They are big guys that can all run. That’s something we’re looking for in our scheme, guys that can stretch the field vertically." I sure as hell HOPE that's why they were drafted...
As the franchise tag deadline looms closer, Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien had nothing but good things to say about LB Jadeveon Clowney. "I've had a really good experience with JD. He's played good football for us. He's a good person. I've enjoyed coaching him." Just pointing out that he's talking in past tense here.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle is taking a page out of Dennis Pitta's book and is recovering from hip surgery. He's expected back by training camp, but so was Dennis Pitta. Then what happened?
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Dave Caldwell shot down any rumors that he was trading his star CB Jalen Ramsey this offseason. “We’re not going to trade Jalen. When you have a player that’s one of the top at his position, it’s hard to replace that player.”
Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry isn't expected to have heel surgery this offseason, according to coach Andy Reid.
Ndamukong Suh isn't so sure he'll be returning to the Los Angeles Rams next season.
Patrick Mahomes can't play basketball this offseason, but the Los Angeles Chargers don't have a problem with Derwin James playing.
The Miami Dolphins seem to have one requirement when meeting with players at the Scouting Combine -- who the fuck Dan Marino is.
The Minnesota Vikings have exercised coach Mike Zimmer's option, allowing him to remain with the team until 2020.
Golden Tate would apparently "love" to play for the New England Patriots. Don't we all (not me).
Ravens coach John Harbaugh spoke at the NFL Combine today, and one of the topics was about how the New Orleans Saints were screwed.
New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur says the team is committing to QB Eli Manning for 2019, for some reason.
New York Jets coach Adam Gase says TE Chris Herndon is a "unicorn-type player." Does he have a fucking horn or something? What did I miss?
I'll just leave this quote here from new Oakland Raiders GM Mike Mayock. "It’s been kind of a whirlwind couple of months. I’ve known Gruden for a lot of years, but you walk in at 5:30 in the morning and he looks at you, ‘Why are you late? I’ve been here an hour.’ It’s been awesome.”
The Philadelphia Eagles aren't placing the franchise tag on quarterback Nick Foles, making him a free agent. I have a feeling his will be a very funny decision many of us will revisit in the near future.
Pittsburgh Steelers GM Kevin Colbert is throwing up the smoke screen if I've ever seen one. He's insisting that interest in Antonio Brown has "grown," which could very well be true, but I think he's just saying this so teams will think this and then jump on it. I wasn't born yesterday Kevin.
The San Francisco 49ers officially introduced their 2019 coaching staff, including Miles Austin and Wes Welker. Remember when he did molly at the Kentucky Derby? Good times.
A look at where the Seattle Seahawks seem to struggle -- edge rusher.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers has one rule for his employees, and it's a good one --
A look at some outside linebackers the Tennessee Titans can look at during this week's Scouting Combine.
I'll just leave you with the sad, sad picture of the state of the Washington Redskins.
Extra Pts 02/27: Orlando Brown on the combine, panthers hosting a beer fest & tom brady kissing more people
Peak offseason news. The Arizona Cardinals now have a street named after them in Glendale, Arizona. It's called 'Cardinals Way' -- they rejected my suggestion of 'Josh Rosen Avenue.'
We all know Atlanta Falcons fans don't show up to games, but this is actually just outright embarrassing. Attendance at games was apparently much lower than they reported, which is almost as funny as the time they had to pump crowd noise into their speakers at games to drown out the booing.
Baltimore Ravens' Orlando Brown, who famously had a bad Combine and then went on to fall to Baltimore and was one of the standouts on the team (if you actually watched) had some words to say about the upcoming Scouting Combine (this is the start of the thread, but the whole thing is worth reading) --
The Buffalo Bills are hiring former Dolphins' analytics guy Dennis Lock as their director of football research and strategy. No idea what that job entails but just go with it.
The Carolina Panthers are hosting a beer festival at their stadium -- they're really pushing me to become a fan aren't they?
Chicago Bears G Kyle Long appears to have restructured his contract, making him a --
This is the most Bengals story ever -- A Cincinnati Bengals season ticket holder (why) is suing the team because he slipped in fell in puke at the stadium. Seriously. Cannot make this up.
Cleveland Browns OT Greg Robinson is re-signing with the team, as of Monday.
This should surprise absolutely no one - Dallas Cowboys DE Randy Gregory is suspended by the NFL basically forever after violating the league's substance abuse policy. This is probably like the sixth time right?
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay has some advice for those players who may not be invited to the Combine --
This is a buzzkill -- ex-Detroit Lions DE Armonty Bryant needs a kidney donation and transplant.
The Green Bay Packers are not expected to re-sign WR Randall Cobb this offseason. Cobb could be a good option for a team not looking for a star, but looking for an okayish player who may or may not do well.
Here are five offseason moves that could help improve the Houston Texans -- starting with franchising Jadeveon Clowney.
The Indianapolis Colts are extending TE Ross Travis to a one-year extension, if you're into that sort of thing.
Unpopular opinion: A look at why signing QB Nick Foles would be a mistake for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Dez Bryant says playing as the Kansas City Chiefs is "unstoppable." Guess that's one way to get a ring.
Andrew Whitworth says he's returning to the Los Angeles Rams via Twitter on Tuesday. He reportedly told the team he would be returning two days following the Super Bowl.
Los Angeles Chargers S Derwin James shares his experiences from the Scouting Combine in his own words. The workouts... and the weird ass questions. "Somebody asked me what I would do if they gave me a brick. I just (responded) that it would be the start of a foundation. Another team put me through an algebra test and (math questions); asking whatâs two plus two, and then whatâs four plus six. It was weird."
LG Josh Sitton fully expects to be released by the Miami Dolphins this offseason after signing a two-year deal last year.
Not sure who asked him but Mike Shanahan seems to think the Minnesota Vikings got the right QB in Kirk Cousins.
Here's New England Patriots QB Tom Brady kissing his wife for once instead of his son.
New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas will be a contestant on Celebrity Family Feud -- joining him are other NFL players like Lamar Jackson and Cameron Hayward. They'll be going against Hall of Famers. I wonder who will win.
The New York Giants aren't getting a new QB yet, but they are getting the next best thing -- a new DBs coach. They're hiring Everett Withers, who spent the past three years as the head coach of Texas State.
The New York Jets are reportedly eyeing soon-to-be free agent WR Donte Moncrief.
The Oakland Raiders finally know where they're playing in 2019 -- and it's the same damn place that they've been playing all along. Shocking.
The Philadelphia Eagles aren't expected to pick up Timmy Jernigan's 2019 option, which means he'll most likely hit the free agent market.
Soon-to-be former Pittsburgh Steelerâ Le'Veon Bell just likes attention. That's all I'm gonna say.
The first player to be franchised this offseason (officially, at least)? San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould. A kicker. Sounds about right.
A quick look at five players at the Combine that could fit right in with the Seattle Seahawks.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber's playbook was stolen out of his car this past weekend, and the Bucs said there is no vital information and no concern over this because it is, of course, the Bucs.
The Tennessee Titans are one of many teams who need WRs -- but free agency might not be the answer for them.
Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice tore his ACL early last season, but he seems to be back on the mend because I don't think I can do this.
The Arizona Cardinals have been busy this offseason, signing three of the top free agents available this offseason -- Brooks Reed, Robert Alford and Charles Clay. They need all the help they can get after last year.
Offensive lineman Ben Garland won't be back with the Atlanta Falcons next season, which can't be that important because I had to Google who he was.
Baltimore Ravens first-round pick TE who didn't do jack shit last season Hayden Hurst, posted a shot on the Gram of his foot sans screw, saying he's now 100 percent. That's great, cause whatever percent he was working with last season wasn't worth a damn.
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen not only admitted that there isn't anything to do in Buffalo, but he also told us his favorite wing sauce. I've never had it, but honey butter barbecue Cajun-style sounds delicious.
The Carolina Panthers are raising ticket prices for 2019, and they're also building a practice bubble. They should actually build one around Cam Newton.
S Adrian Amos has been "talking back and forth" with the Chicago Bears ahead of free agency. "I would like to be back, but the business part of it, it’s complicated sometimes. Things still could happen, but I have to be prepared for all scenarios."
NOT A SPONSORED POST. Here's a look at how the Cincinnati Bengals use their iPads on the sideline (they're actually Microsoft Surface tablets or whatever).
The Cleveland Browns signed WR Jaelen Strong on Wednesday. Strong previously spent time on the Texans and the Jaguars, so he knows how to play on bad teams.
Here are ten things you might not know about Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee -- including his family lawyer business. Weird flex.
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders pretty much answers this question:
Detroit Lions head strength and conditioning coach Harold Nash Jr. talks about the evolution of athletes through strength and conditioning in the weight room and beyond. Maybe he can tell us how Matthew Stafford has been 24 for the past eight years.
Jordy Nelson wasn't happy to leave the Green Bay Packers last season, but now he just wants to move forward. I'd be pissed if I had to go from Aaron Rodgers to Derek Carr -- I'd talk about it for the rest of my life.
The Houston Texans can apply the franchise tag to Jadeveon Clowney, but that doesn't mean they're going to.
Former Indianapolis Colts and Browns RB Trent Richardson is currently in the AAF, but he eventually wants to make an NFL comeback. Don't we all. "Ya’ll keep watching. We’re going to do great things in this Alliance league. And hopefully one day I’ll get that phone call and hopefully I’ll be jumping in that Dawg Pound one day.”
The Jacksonville Jaguars picked up the option on one of their most impactful players, DE Calais Campbell, while also declining TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins' option.
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was glad to see Kareem Hunt get another chance at football, for some reason. "I’m sure they will have things that he needs to do off the field in order to be on the field playing. Kareem is a great player, great running back.” Uhh ya, I'm sure.
The Los Angeles Chargers are re-signing WR Artavis Scott.
The new home of the Los Angeles Rams is coming together nicely, if you're into that sort of thing.
The Miami Dolphins don't only need a new quarterback, they also need a new (and consistent) offensive line.
Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen and his agent are hoping for a contract extension sooner rather than later. "He has a couple of years left on his deal but he's earned a significant pay raise. Not to mention what he's done on the field, he might be one of the best people in the entire National Football League and represents the city and the organization and state and frankly, the entire region unbelievably."
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski reportedly told teammates after the Super Bowl that he wanted another ring. AHHHHHHHH MAKE IT STOP
New York Giants S Landon Collins apparently cleared out his locker on Wednesday, but as it turns out...
One likely place for Le'Veon Bell to end up -- the New York Jets.
The Oakland Raiders may not just stay in Oakland for one year, but maybe two. An announcement is also not expected this week. If anyone cares, raise your hand.
Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins is making a pitch for Bryce Harper to sign with the Phillies.
Soon-to-be-ex Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is telling us how he really feels.
San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo had a lot of hype, and then his season ended early due to injury -- but how good was he, really?
This is #notgreat -- former Seattle Seahawks TJ Cunningham was shot and killed in Aurora, Colorado parking lot, over a fucking parking space.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Kwon Alexander would like to stay in Tampa, even though he'll likely be a free agent in a few weeks.
Here's a look at some of the things the Tennessee Titans need to work on offensively to improve in 2019.
Some people seem to think the Washington Redskins need Antonio Brown -- they need that drama like a hole in the head, tbh.
The Arizona Cardinals were forced to rely on basically all of their rookies in 2018, including their rookie QB Josh Rosen. Here's a look at some of the rookie stats from last season, and, well, it can only go up from here.
One of the many excuses for Matt Ryan that Atlanta Falcons fans had last year was the offensive line. Here's a look at some offensive line prospects the team could be interested in in this season's Combine.
Robert Griffin III says Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson will develop into a more accurate passer. I'll just leave that here, but basically there's no way he can be any worse at it, so here's to hoping.
The Buffalo Bills are one of the teams with the most salary cap space in the next two years -- can't wait to see how they fuck this one up!
Should the Carolina Panthers sign Colin Kaepernick? Here's a look at the pros and cons, including if he can still play and how he fits into the Panthers' system.
The Chicago Bears shouldn't be using the franchise tag this year. If they do, they're dumb as rocks.
A look at if the Cincinnati Bengals should release LB Vontaze Burfict. YES.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is doing the Polar Bear Plunge on Saturday and wants you to join him (I'll pass).
The Dallas Cowboys are not picking up WR Terrance Williams' option, making him a free agent. He's not old enough to be a Ravens WR yet, but maybe in about ten years.
Denver Broncos LB Brandon Marshall posted a goodbye video on Twitter, meaning his time in Denver is as good as over. It's a shame he can't play with the goat though (Joe Flacc0).
A push for the Detroit Lions to go after Patriots pass rusher Trey Flowers.
WR John Brown probably doesn't wanna play in Baltimore anymore because he'll never get the ball, but a team that could use him (correctly)? The Green Bay Packers.
Houston Texans great Andre Johnson thinks QB Deshaun Watson is on the way up. "I think he learned a lot from this season. I think he's going to continue to get better and better. This being his first full season, I think he'll go back and look over it and learn from it. I think there are a lot of special things to look forward to next season."
Former Indianapolis Colt Gary Brackett is searching for new homes for his sports bar franchise. It's called the Stacked Pickle. I'm so in, just on the name. And the word bar.
The Jacksonville Jaguars named Dom Capers their senior defensive assistant on Tuesday. "He adds a unique perspective and veteran presence that will be valuable assets to immediately help us," head coach Doug Marrone said.
CFL player Justin Senior has signed a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.
After a storm threatened to ruin her business on one of the most important flower days of the year, Los Angeles Chargers QB came by to buy some flowers for his wife and kids (aka he probably bought the entire goddamn store) and brightened her day. Hope he didn't yell.
CJ Anderson is spilling the tea. He revealed that Todd Gurley's knee injury was worst than the Los Angeles Rams originally thought. “He was more hurt than what we thought. The injury was a little bit more than what everybody in the building thought, including himself.”
Could Nick Mullens be the next Miami Dolphins quarterback? This would be so Dolphins it's not even funny.
Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins is pissing people off again, and it's not because of his bad QB play.
Antonio Brown hasn't talked to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft yet, so stop asking.
Not only did the refs take a step back for the New Orleans Saints, but their cornerbacks did too.
Could the New York Giants be a favorite to land on HBO's Hard Knocks? God I hope not. Snoozer.
The New York Jets aren't picking up the option for DT Mike Pennel.
The Oakland Raiders and the Coliseum close on a deal to keep the Raiders around for another year -- like it matters.
Something on the Philadelphia Eagles' to-do list: Develop corners instead of just signing whoever the hell walks off the street.
Pittsburgh Steelers Art Rooney and Antonio Brown met and decided to part ways. BYYEEEEE BITCH
San Francisco 49ers CB Richard Sherman talks about the NFL's concussion policy -- in his own words. A good read.
Two players that ARE (maybe) allowed to play basketball -- Seattle Seahawks Shaquem Griffin challenges Bobby Wagner to a pickup game of basketball.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing RB Andre Ellington. He has ties to Bruce Arians from playing in Arizona for five seasons.
Allen Iverson was out and about wearing Tennessee Titans gear in public for some reason.
The Washington Redskins need a quarterback -- could they nab Teddy Bridgewater?
Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen was involved in a car accident in his Tesla on Sunday, thank GOD he wasn't hurt or I'd find some sort of way to blame his offensive line for it.
Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley created the most separation among all NFL WRs during the 2018 season -- must be nice, I literally have no idea what that's like.
A man was found outside of M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens, literally BURNT TO DEATH in a porta potty in the middle of the day on Sunday. This type of shit is why I moved out of Baltimore.
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen has an important question for Jags CB Jalen Ramsey -- he wants to know if Ramsey thinks he's still trash. I'd really love to know the answer here, but I have a feeling the answer is still a yes.
Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera says the team could bring in another QB to challenge current starter Cam Newton. "I don't disagree with that because if there is one thing that he likes it's to be challenged. Bringing in another quarterback, bringing in somebody to compete with him most certainly does motivate him." They may need another option if Newton has to sit for a little bit with his shoulder issue (or until his offensive line creams him and he gets hurt again).
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy has finally settled it. He declared Michael Jordan the greatest athlete of all time, and I don't know/won't pretend to know anything about basketball, but I think he's onto something there.
The Cincinnati Bengals are still looking for a defensive coordinator. New head coach Zac Taylor insists that he's just looking for "the right person," but I tend to think it's because no one wants to play in that dump.
The Cleveland Browns could move on from LB Jamie Collins -- here are some free agent options for the team if they do. Seahawks' KJ Wright seems to be the favorite.
The Dallas Cowboys are trying to hold out and wait to tag DeMarcus Lawrence for the second time. They have to reach a deal in just a few weeks, or else he'll be hit with the dreaded tag.
The GOAT Joe Flacco doing the most Flacco of things and flying commercial to visit the Denver Broncos and pass his physical.
After using the franchise tag on him last season, the Detroit Lions don't plan on using it again on DE Ziggy Ansah. The reason the Lions are giving? Health. “Part of that is the medical. Part of that is the, ‘How long is he going to be out? What do we think when he gets recovered? Is he going to be the same?’ So all these things kind of factor in, so I don’t have an answer today."
Former Green Bay Packers pick Charles Johnson had a record-setting weekend in the AAF. He was better than any Ravens WR in the last five seasons.
Fox Sports named Houston one of the worst cities to live in if you're a football fan, which I don't understand because there are plenty of Olive Gardens and other chain restaurants there to go watch a game at. Also tickets at the Houston Texans' stadium to see your favorite team (cause it can't possibly be the Texans) are sure to be cheap.
The Indianapolis Colts managed to keep Andrew Luck in one piece in 2018, thanks to their offensive line. Indy had PFF's top three guards in the AFC South.
DJ Hayden looked to be the best free-agent signing of 2018 for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
One of them is the most exciting team in the NFL and one of them is the most boring and they need to stop winning -- could the next biggest rivalry in the NFL be the Kansas City Chiefs and the Patriots?
Football is back in San Diego (kind of) and the San Diego Fleet are taking over (I'm trying to make this as nice as possible). Here's what a football game in San Diego is like now -- how different is it from a Los Angeles Chargers game?
After reaching the Super Bowl, the Los Angeles Rams have a lot of decisions to make this offseason, starting with the defense.
It's Mock Draft Season, and one of (I honestly don't know if it's his latest) Mel Kiper's has the Miami Dolphins taking top prospect Kyler Murray. It's about time they get a real QB.
One of the biggest positions of need this offseason for the Minnesota Vikings is offensive line -- here are five free agents the Vikings could look to at OG.
Despite rumors that he is/could retire, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has been a regular at Gilette Stadium, whether it be obligations or just getting treatment for injuries. Either way this ends up coming out, Gronk is sure to be a staple with the team for many years to come, and I don't know if that makes me happy or angry.
New Orleans Saints GM hinted that the team needs to bring down QB Drew Brees' cap hit of $33.5 million for 2019. Not that he doesn't deserve it (he does), but that is a big ass number, to put it bluntly.
The New York Giants need a new quarterback, that isn't a secret. However, there is one team that could stop them from doing so -- of course it's the Patriots.
There hasn't been a positive correlation between NFL players and driving in the past few days. New York Jets DL Charles Tapper was in a car accident this weekend, making it like the 73rd in the past month.
No idea who this is, but Rickey Henderson wanted to play for the Oakland Raiders as well as playing baseball for the Oakland A's. The A's said nah.
Even though most people are focused on where Nick Foles will be going, the Philadelphia Eagles have a lot of other things to do this offseason. One of them is deciding what theirsalary cap casualties could be.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have been tending to do something embarrassing almost every day. Antonio Brown is apparently "scaring teams away" with his tweets. I think that's a stretch, but what do I know?
The San Francisco 49ers are prepared to use their franchise tag on a kicker. Yep, it's definitely possible the team could use 2019's tag on Robbie Gould.
Bobby Wagner could remain a member of the Seattle Seahawks for a long time to come, but other changes could potentially be in store for the team.
A look into new Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians' office.
One position you shouldn't expect to see the Tennessee Titans select in the first round -- tight end.
Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is a clown who can't even sell a new stadium.
While most people have those weird, automated email newsletters, my email list gets an email straight from me every week >>>>
