Apparently the rest, rest and more rest that Cam Newton’s body needed this offseason wasn’t the only thing required. Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday there’s a little bit of repair going on, too. “He’s going to have to rebuild his confidence,” Rivera said at the NFL owners meetings
The quarterback has changed. Denver is still squarely inside that Super Bowl window. There’s no denying the Broncos still have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL, including a defense that still appears to be Super Bowl ready.
The past 15 months have spoken volumes about NFL ownership and the league's bottom line. It says the league is willing to be more aggressive than ever about offering owners alternatives to their financial hurdles, especially when clearing those hurdles benefits all the billionaires in the room.
The Raiders got the official OK to relocate to Las Vegas as NFL owners reportedly voted 31-1 on Monday in approval of the franchise’s move from Oakland, Calif., a place the team has called home for 45 of its 58 seasons of existence in the AFL and NFL. The Raiders needed 24 of 32 votes to win approval
The Tony Romo clock is running out. With offseason workouts set to begin in only a few weeks – and the Dallas Cowboys unlikely to risk having their ousted former starter show up and expose himself to injury – the moment to make a decision on Romo has arrived for Dallas. If the Cowboys are going to
In wake of the Tom Brady jersey theft and recovery – authentication pending on the latter – the question the NFL faces now is how to address a security breach that may have stretched over at least three consecutive Super Bowls. Sources from two other recent Super Bowl teams told Yahoo Sports they are
Adrian Peterson is still waiting. As incomprehensible as it seemed only a few weeks ago, one of the greatest running backs in NFL history is still waiting for significant pursuit one full week into free agency. Largely thanks to a depressed running backs market and Peterson’s age (he turns 32 on Tuesday
The NFL collectively rolled its eyes at that half-joking (but really not) buzz-killing line from the New England Patriots coach, delivered less than 24 hours after seizing the franchise’s fifth Super Bowl ring. Only someone as pathologically goal-driven as Belichick could deliver a line like that and
A few days before the start of the NFL scouting combine, a league source sat at a table discussing free agency and leaned in with a pointed question. The voicemail for the Washington Redskins general manager was full. “You should talk to the Redskins,” the source said.
This is what the Cleveland Browns envisioned with their new regime: strip down, build up and, above all, attack the system any way possible to secure assets to help in that effort. If that means finding a creative way to buy a draft pick, so be it. Make no mistake: That’s what the Browns did with some
As much as the NFL world at large is rushing to answer where the soon-to-be former Dallas Cowboy will land, there is a significant blind spot when it comes to who should want Romo now. Tony Romo’s top suitors are believed to be the Broncos and Texans. The fact that nobody has legitimate tape on Romo
There’s at least one thing NFL teams can agree on heading into Tuesday’s free-agent negotiating period: Prices are going up and some positions are headed for a salary reset. Mike Glennon started 18 games with the Bucs since 2013. 1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup quarterback Mike Glennon is getting paid
Yahoo Sports spoke with three NFL talent evaluators who watched the quarterbacks throw on Saturday and at least one opinion was universal: Watson showed up ready to make his case that he deserves to be considered near the top of every quarterback-needy draft board. Deshaun Watson scored good marks for
San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch took the broadcasting route back to the NFL. Now former Philadelphia Eagles and 49ers head coach Chip Kelly could end up running the same play – and it could be through Lynch’s previous NFL analyst job at Fox Sports. Kelly auditioned with Fox Sports for
Every year, we’re reminded by talent evaluators that the 40-yard dash is the most overblown event of the NFL’s annual scouting combine. Leonard Fournette and Mike Williams, come on down. Among the draft’s elite prospects, the LSU running back and Clemson wideout have surfaced as two players whose 40
Adrian Peterson is headed to free agency. Now the waiting game begins – and it might last longer than anyone thinks. Indeed, a source close to Peterson said the player has been doing casual research on potential NFL destinations for a little more than two weeks – preparing for the first free agency
If the journey to the next Kirk Cousins contract were a car ride, the Washington Redskins would have sideswiped every parked vehicle on the street by now. The Redskins have internal problems. This means Cousins will be on the books in Washington for a two-season total of $43.89 million in guaranteed
For all intents and purposes, the Cleveland Browns will be setting the table for much of the NFL draft. As such, the Browns’ agenda at the NFL’s annual scouting combine will be of particular interest in Indianapolis this week. Not just because Cleveland has two first-round picks (Nos.
With the center of the NFL’s personnel universe shifting toward the annual scouting combine in a couple of weeks, a soon-to-be 37-year-old quarterback is set to take the stage as the biggest story of this young offseason. Two sources close to the quarterback said Romo expects to get an answer – likely
Tom Brady’s Super Bowl LI jersey was likely stolen from his bag prior to media entering the locker room Sunday night, according to multiple NFL sources who spoke to Yahoo Sports about the timeline surrounding the theft. The investigation is inching forward between league officials, New England Patriots
HOUSTON — When it was all over, the DNA roll call began. Atlanta Falcons cornerback Robert Alford recalled touching one of the greatest catches in Super Bowl history with a hand, leg and foot. Safeties Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal each felt it graze part of some limb, seemingly taunting them from inside
The NFL is listening. Perhaps that is the one thing commissioner Roger Goodell wanted everyone to take away from his annual state of the league address Wednesday. When or where that door gets opened is a whole other matter – but Goodell sent out some clear signs that the league is ready to start engaging
For days now, the helicopters have lingered over various parts of Houston, drawing questions, complaints and stares. “Those are big brother keeping us safe,” Houston police chief Art Acevedo said Tuesday. “There’s absolutely nothing to be concerned about,” added Sean McElroy, the federal coordinator
