Extra Pts 02/18: Antonio Brown calls out his team, Russell WIlson is still corny& Ben Affleck's kid doesn't care about the Pats
Throughout plenty of speculation that the Arizona Cardinals could draft a quarterback instead of keep Josh Rosen, new head coach Kliff Kingsbury says it just, "comes with the territory. When somebody has the No. 1 pick it comes with a lot of intrigue and a lot of hype and both those guys are tremendous players."
A look at the Atlanta Falcons' social media guy -- he's probably so tired of me by now.
Baltimore Ravens' new offensive coordinator Greg Roman for some reason thinks he's going to build a more balanced offense in 2019. "The best thing we can do is be able to fight with both hands." Hopefully both of those hands are holding onto the ball.
The Buffalo Bills released TE Charles Clay, which shouldn't surprise anyone. His playing time decreased as the season went on, and he was even a healthy scratch in Week 16.
Colin Kaepernick's lawyer Mark Geragos predicts that if he were to play in the NFL again (which I think he should), one of the teams that would be willing to take a chance on him would be the Carolina Panthers. He would join his friend Eric Reid. And the Panthers should be looking for someone to come in with Cam Newton on the mend.
Fans missing football aren't the only ones watching the Alliance of American Football League -- the Chicago Bears' scouts are also keeping a close eye on the games.
Because it isn't the offseason until a Cincinnati Bengals player is arrested. RB Mark Walton was arrested this weekend after an argument with a couple in a parking garage. Walton was charged with battery.
A look at some of the options the Cleveland Browns have regarding Greg Robinson's contract.
Among those who are likely to be franchised, Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence.
Elvis Dumervil calls the Denver Broncos' signing of Joe Flacco 'definitely desperate,' which is funny considering the only thing I can think of when I think of Dumervil's time in Baltimore is a fax machine.
The Detroit Lions released veteran S Glover Quin, after he started all 96 Lions games within his six seasons with the team.
The Green Bay Packers are still loading up their 2019 coaching staff, adding two offensive assistants.

Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey hinted at a contract extension, after the Jags extended their kicker.
Former Giants Super Bowl Champion Sam Madison is likely to join Steve Spagnuolo and the Kansas City Chiefs as an assistant coach.

Patriots LB Kyle Van Noy said on Pardon My Take (big Js) that he couldn't believe the Los Angeles Rams didn't try to do more to stop them in this years' Super Bowl. “I couldn’t believe that. They really didn’t do one wrinkle. I was like, ‘What the hell?’ They’ve got so many good players. They’ve got so many things they’ve done all year, and the one play they gave us which was a wrinkle was the Cooks screen that hit for a little bit. And that was it.”
The Miami Dolphins are hiring former Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie as a senior executive. He'll assist Dolphins GM Chris Grier do whatever it is they do in the Dolphins' front office.
Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray is likely to test the free-agent market shortly, and he'll have offers from teams looking to have a reliable back. Here is an idea of what his market could be like.
Ben Affleck's son is my true hero -- he told his annoying New England Patriots fan father that he didn't give a shit about the Patriots and basically had to redecorate his entire bedroom.
New Orleans Saints RB (maybe not for long) Mark Ingram has some lofty goals before he hangs up his cleats. He wants not only a Super Bowl ring, but 10,000 rushing yards.
The New York Giants need some fixing, and here's a few suggestions about how to do it.
Former New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg sucked again in the AAF.
The Ravens aren't the only ones who have bad luck with WRs. Here are five WRs that the Oakland Raiders could sign in free agency.
Philadelphia Eagles S Malcolm Jenkins had something to say about the Kaepernick settlement. And he isn't wrong.
I feel like every day that goes by, the Pittsburgh Steelers do something to embarrass themselves. Yesterday, Antonio Brown took to Twitter to not only call out his coach, but his quarterback too.
The San Francisco 49ers are expected to release veteran receiver Pierre Garcon. Classic case of more due money than he's worth.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is still corny. This is just too much.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston basically admitted he tuned out his coaches after being benched. What a guy.
Tennessee Titans DB Jurrell Casey says of all QBs Andrew Luck is his "nemesis." Interesting choice.
Supposedly the Washington Redskins were also interested in Joe Flacco before it was released that he would be traded to Denver. Thank god -- Joe dodged a bullet.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury finally says what I've been needing to hear. Despite Kyler Murray talk, Kingsbury declares QB Josh Rosen "our guy." Mine too.
Ex-Atlanta Falcons K Matt Bryant says he was more amazed than shocked by his release, and he doesn't have any plans to retire. Just wants to play with a better QB.
The Baltimore Ravens teamed up with Dunkin Bmore to bring donuts and such to first responders and other community workers.
Newly retired Buffalo Bills DT Kyle Williams will be covering the NFL Scouting Combine with NFL Network.

University of Florida defensive coordinator Todd Grantham remains a top candidate for the Cincinnati Bengals DC job.
2018 actually wasn't a bad year for the Cleveland Browns for once. Here's a look back at their draft that started it all.
While there were reports about it (there always are), Jason Witten said a midseason return to the Dallas Cowboys wasn't an option -- he wasn't gonna come out of retirement for that shit.
The announcement you've all been waiting for. I am now a Denver Broncos fan. The Ravens are trading QB Joe Flacco to Denver, making them my early pick for winning the Super Bowl next season. Despite what some may think, he's a definite upgrade at their current situation, and the offense fits Joe better. I still wouldn't rule out the Broncos taking a QB in the draft, though. Let's. GO. BRONCOS. #MileHighLindsey
Finally! The Detroit Lions are re-signing their LS Don Muhlbach, whose name straight up sounds like a lawyer.
After some serious injuries, Muhammad Wilkerson says he would like to keep playing, specifically for the Green Bay Packers.
The Houston Texans are releasing veteran WR Demariyus Thomas, making him almost old enough to be picked up by the Ravens in free agency.
I can get behind this -- a look at why the Indianapolis Colts should draft a pass rusher in the first round.
Could Nick Foles be heading to the Jacksonville Jaguars? A source says the two have "mutual interest."
Kansas City Chiefs QB Pat Mahomes is already back it and getting ready for next season.
Los Angeles Chargers GM Tom Telesco has a positive take on the AAF league. "It's a great idea. It has the potential to be a nice complement to the NFL. It's a great spot for a developmental league for players, but even aside from that -- coaches and front office, officiating, athletic trainers and video equipment people, public relations -- all of that. So I think it's a great place where people can develop in every department of football operations. Every department that touches a football team can get some real-life experience." This should have happened a long time ago, IMO.
Like many teams around the league (COUGH RAVENS COUGH), the Los Angeles Rams could also use an upgrade on offensive line.
The Miami Dolphins are among those betting favorites for soon-to-be ex Steelers WR Antonio Brown.
Everyone is trolling Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins, and it's one of my favorite things when that happens.

Rod Woodson is one of many who is impressed with New Orleans Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

If the New York Jets sign another running back -- and they should -- they are expected to part ways with Isaiah Crowell.
After being fired for literally just TALKING to Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis, the team reached out to the same limo driver about a potential job -- hopefully it's driving Davis to his haircut appointments.
The Broncos checked with the Philadelphia Eagles before pulling the trigger on Joe Flacco, apparently. They got the better one, imo.
Here's a look at how the Pittsburgh Steelers' offense could look sans Antonio Brown -- I hope it's the worst ever, personally.
The San Francisco 49ers are releasing OL Garry Gilliam (sounds made up) to free up some cap space ahead of the beginning of free agency.
Former Seattle Seahawk Kam Chancellor poses a question --
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to either extend or franchise Donovan Smith, even though he's set to become a free agent in March.
Tennessee Titans S Johnathan Cyprien is focusing on his health and getting back up to speed this offseason.
All of Maryland hates the Washington Redskins pretty much. MD governor Larry Hogan is withdrawing his efforts to build a new stadium for the team. Serves Dan Snyder right.
The Arizona Cardinals potentially trading away future Hall of Famer Josh Rosen to draft Kyler Murray first overall is the biggest mistake they could possibly make. Rosen only had a year with Larry Fitzgerald and literally no other realm of hope beyond that -- to give up on him based on that alone will make the Cardinals the laughing stock of the league.
Atlanta Falcons' second-year RB Ito Smith could be 100 percent by the beginning of training camp. He was put on injured reserve with a knee injury in December, or as I like to call it, long after the Falcons' season is already guaranteed to be over.
Anne Arundel County doctor Umang Patel won Baltimore Ravens seats for 20 years -- club seats plus parking. Not a bad deal if you factor out what you're gonna be watching.
The Buffalo Bills considered being idiots and looking into signing Kareem Hunt.
The Carolina Panthers are releasing LB Ben Jacobs, giving him the chance to sign with another team ahead of free agency.

The Cincinnati Bengals claimed QB Brad Kaaya off of waivers, who is probably automatically better at the QB position than Andy Dalton.
After fighting with Arian Foster on Twitter this week, Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield has seen plenty of criticism -- I can't help but love him, though, and neither can teammate Jarvis Landry.
Dallas Cowboys C Travis Frederick should be back to playing football this spring. He was the one diagnosed with Guillian-Barre syndrome, which I'm still not entirely sure what that is, but good for him nonetheless.
One team (not the Cardinals) who could actually use Kyler Murray is the Denver Broncos -- here's a look at what they need to do to get him.
The Detroit Lions don't wanna do HBO's Hard Knocks, but that doesn't stop them from trying to brush it off on someone else -- the Raiders, who don't even have a fuckin spot to play!
The Green Bay Packers are one of many teams looking for a running back -- here's a case to make a trade with the Browns, who famously just got another running back whose name I won't mention because he's trash, and could be looking to get rid of one.
Houston Texans DE JJ Watt is going to serve as Daytona 500 grand marshal, and I have no idea what that means but that's cool, I guess.

Should the Minnesota Vikings trade Xavier Rhodes? Coming from someone who fully believes in the "you can never have enough CBs" mantra, my answer is no.
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick keeps having to rename his boat after every Super Bowl he wins. So annoying. He's gonna need a bigger boat.
Soon-to-be former Cowboy Cole Beasley is set to become a free agent this offseason. One team who could use him? The New Orleans Saints.
The New York Giants need a new quarterback sooner rather than later, but reports from New York say Kyler Murray is "a little too small" for the Giants. Been there before.
A look back on ex-New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg's AAF debut -- it wasn't good.
Mike Mayock is about to enter his first draft as GM of the Oakland Raiders -- here's how he may approach the situation.
Not sure if any of you are lame AF like me and watch American's Got Talent, but former Philadelphia Eagles LS Jon Dorenbos is still on that shit and he's one of my favorites.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown tweets his goodbye to the city and team... even though he may or may not be leaving.... Ya hate to see it.

The Seattle Seahawks are expected to tag DE Frank Clark if they can't reach a long-term deal with him ahead of time.
After getting cut from the Falcons, Matt Bryant thinks his former team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be an option for him in 2019. Just wants to play with an actual QB.

Former Washington Redskins WR Rashad Ross is off to a good start in the AAF.
The Arizona Cardinals' hiring of Kliff Kingsbury was ranked last among recently-hired coaches. What actually matters is he's by far the hottest.
Bob Sutton is joining the Atlanta Falcons as a senior coaching assistant. Or as I like to call it, another candidate for next year's scape goat.
Former Baltimore Raven Steve Smith Sr. is playing in this year's NBA All-Star Celebrity Game. This is good for him and everything, but I'm honestly afraid of him getting hurt. Anyone else?
The Buffalo Bills want to help QB Josh Allen pad his stats a little more by throwing more short passes. Let's start with finishing a full season first.
Carolina Panthers S Eric Reid signed a three-year deal on Monday. This keeps him with the team until 2021. Funny how there are probably some people out there that are more mad at this signing than someone else who was also signed today.
The Chicago Bears are rumored to be playing the Lions on Thanksgiving. I'll sleep through that one.
The Cincinnati Bengals are literally hiring a HIGH SCHOOL football coach. You cannot make this up. But at least it fits their style.
The Cleveland Browns are fucking IDIOTS. They're signing Kareem Hunt. Yeah, that one, the one who kicked a woman on video. I'll just leave this here.
PFF's list of the top 101 NFL players is out -- here's a look at who made it for the Dallas Cowboys.
Denver Broncos QB (sort of) Chad Kelly uploaded a video of himself working out on Monday, since that's the new thing to do now. He was the one who got wasted at that Halloween party. I would have liked to see that video instead honestly.
Here's a look at the top positions of need for the Detroit Lions... I would have gone with "all of them," myself.
The NFL may be letting the Green Bay Packers and the Bears open the season this year. I'm all for this. The less I have to see of the Patriots, the better.
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is looking forward to working with his new OC Tim Kelly. "Tim Kelly, he's a great guy, great coach."
Indianapolis Colts LB Darius Leonard surprised his mom with a Mercedes. This stuff only happens on the Christmas car commercials.

Rumor has it that the Kansas City Chiefs will be left out of the NFL's opening night game, which is just a mistake for all involved.
If you missed the AAF's opening game, at least watch this one hit on former Los Angeles Chargers QB Mike Bercovici that WASN'T. EVEN. FLAGGED.
The Los Angeles Rams are hiring DC Wade Phillips' son Wes as their tight ends coach. Just hire the whole damn family, I don't care.
Since it's "Mock Draft Season" (SIGH SIGH SIGH), one mock has the Miami Dolphins selecting top prospect Kyler Murray.
Terrell Davis thinks Adrian Peterson should return back to the Minnesota Vikings. I mean, he'll have to play with Kirk Cousins, but anything is an upgrade over the shit show in Washington.
Tell us something we don't know. Jim Irsay is out here preaching that the New England Patriots are the greatest team ever like the world doesn't already fucking know it. Stop.
The New Orleans Saints are hiring Darren Rizzi as their special teams coordinator. Don't know who that is, but apparently he used to be with the Dolphins so that explains it.
The New York Giants need a QB sooner rather than later, but some think Kyler Murray isn't a good choice.
HBO's Hard Knocks supposedly wants the New York Jets, but the Jets don't want to do it.

Philadelphia Eagles' Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffrey sat next to each other at Sunday's 76ers game.
A look at five decisions that the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to have to make sooner rather than later.
The San Francisco 49ers have a ton of cap space heading into free agency. Let Kyle work.
Seattle Seahawks' Shaquen Griffin.... yeah, just watch this.
Tampa Bay Bucs QB Jameis Winston and new head coach Bruce Arians had "hard conversations about our football team," and god I'd love to be a fly on the wall for that one.
Could the Tennessee Titans reunite with Ryan Fitzpatrick the goat? Some people seem to think so.
Jack Gruden, yeah, Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden's son, was arrested for public drunkenness. Which, I mean, I get the picture.

Brooks Reed became the second ex-Falcon free agent this week to sign with the Arizona Cardinals. About time they get to play with a real QB.
Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan played in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this weekend, and apparently played pretty well. At least he's good at one sport.
Just because Le'Veon Bell followed Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson on social media, some people seem to think that means he wants to play there. Stop itttttttt
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen opens up about his rookie year, the Pro Bowl, and what sauce he likes to dip his wings in. I'm strictly Team Ranch, while Josh opts for the bleu cheese. Rough.
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has a new YouTube channel -- which can either turn out to be a very good thing or a very bad thing. His first video takes you inside his shoulder surgery -- like I said, kinda weird but ok.
A look at potential free agents for the Chicago Bears -- from their own division. Top names include Clay Matthews, Latavius Murray, and Bruce Ellington.
Cincinnati Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap has something to say about all of the defensive coordinators who are passing over on the Bengals job. "Show me the better roster," is not something I would say about the Bengals? I can think of about 31 of those.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield and Arian Foster are fighting with each other on Twitter and it's... something else. Overreaction much from Baker? I like him, but... this ain't it.
Sports Illustrated's staff picked the Super Bowl winner for the next five years, and no one picked the Dallas Cowboys, not even once. Others who got zero votes include Atlanta and Baltimore -- the most popular pick was Kansas City.

Here's a sad stat for ya -- Matthew Stafford is a top-10 rusher for the Detroit Lions since Barry Sanders left and I don't think I've ever seen Stafford run in my entire life. Not great!
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers apparently wants to do something that not everyone gets to do, and not everyone even likes -- play in London.
Houston Texans DE JJ Watt confirms what everyone else already knows -- the Steelers are the NFL's version of The Kardashians. His source? His brother, TJ Watt.
Former Indianapolis Colts P Pat McAfee, who famously retired to work for Barstool, is taking on a new venture -- the WWE. He won't be wrestling, unfortunately (I would pay to see that), but he'll be announcing which is the next best thing, I guess.
Mercedes Lewis told TMZ that he thinks the Jacksonville Jaguars trading RB Leonard Fournette would be a mistake. Fournette was a headache for the team for numerous reasons last season, but it was reported that him and the team had a meeting to resolve their differences there towards the end.
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes isn't allowed to play basketball anymore, but that didn't stop him from making fun of that fact on Instagram. (I'd play basketball anyway honestly.)
Ex-Los Angeles Chargers kicker Younghoe Koo (yeah that's seriously his name) was the first player to score points in an AAF game ever. That name is living in the record books for a long time and it deserves to be there.
In the Super Bowl, Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay knew the Patriots were following the Bears' blueprint of how to beat them after ONE fucking play.
The Miami Dolphins hired Jim Caldwell as an assistant coach and the quarterbacks coach which is interesting because they .... don't have a quarterback. Should I just start the Joe Flacco rumors now?
Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has apparently been "frustrated" all season -- I would be too if I grilled rocks, said 'frick' when I got sacked, and listened to Creed all the damn time. Kirk Cousins needs to rob a bank or something.
Golfer Jordan Spieth had some nice words to say about New England Patriots QB Tom Brady. It's all shit we already knew, but click here if you want to read what he said.
Just. This headline. Just read it. New Orleans Saints fan was so determined not to watch Rams in Super Bowl that he died hours before game. Says it all.
Some people seem to think the New York Giants should swap out QB Eli Manning for Nick Foles.

Here are 10 myths about Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz. Not a single one of them are about how he's weirdly religious which was really disappointing.
