A few people have taken a hard stance that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is still unsigned strictly because of his political views. Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh had a strong message on the Kaepernick topic. First of all, he thinks Kaepernick will be signed.
At least Las Vegas was offering $750 million for a new stadium. In time, perhaps Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross will be remembered as the voice of reason. There are reasons to be skeptical about the Las Vegas move.
The NFL publicly hated Las Vegas. The same league that pressured Tony Romo to cancel a fantasy football event in Las Vegas in June of 2015 because it was in a convention center attached to a casino (the horror!) is probably going to vote to move one of its 32 teams to Las Vegas on Monday. The Oakland
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s letter to the mayor of Oakland should leave very little doubt: The Oakland Raiders are as good as gone. The Bay Area News Group published a letter from Goodell to Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf concerning Oakland’s final push to keep the team. Oakland had pitched a $1.3
With all the money NFL teams spent in the first two weeks of free agency, you’d think the shelves would be bare by now. There’s one of two running backs in NFL history to average 5.5 yards per carry over his career, two of seven running backs in the 2,000-yard club, the Chicago Bears’ all-time leader
Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon is just 25 years old. The problem is that the NFL has to let him back in. Gordon, the NFL’s leading receiver in 2013 who has played just five games since then due to suspensions, started the process of getting reinstated earlier this month and is awaiting word
On Thursday, officially, we could put an end to the case of Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jersey (but don’t stop brainstorming that Mauricio Ortega documentary, that thing will be gold). The FBI posted a picture of Brady’s jerseys from Super Bowls XLIX and LI back at Gillette Stadium, alongside the
The NFL said that officials will no longer go watch replay reviews “under the hood,” but use sideline tablets instead. This is part of the NFL changing the replay review process. The review will be centralized, with NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino ultimately having the final say in
White House press secretary Sean Spicer announced on Thursday that the Patriots will visit President Donald Trump in the White House on April 19. A White House trip is one of the perks that goes to teams who win sports championships, but this trip seems a little different.
When Jameis Winston was the No. 1 overall pick of the NFL draft, he made the unusual decision to not attend in person. When Winston won his first NFL game later that year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, his grandmother was there at the Superdome in New Orleans, with permission from her doctor. Winston
A felony charge against Bengals CB Adam Jones was dropped. The worst of the charges against Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones was dropped, according to a report. Katherine Terrell of ESPN reported that Cincinnati prosecutor Joe Deters said a felony charge of harassment with a bodily substance
There are a lot of factors that go into signing with a team in NFL free agency. Jefferson told NFL.com he checked out on the “Madden” video game how he’d look in the uniforms of his free-agent suitors. “I am a guy of swagger, so I gotta check the swag at all points before I make a decision,” Jefferson
One day, the various adventures of Mauricio Ortega will become the greatest sports documentary ever. When Brady’s jersey was recovered, so too was a helmet that apparently was worn by Denver Von Miller in Super Bowl 50 and Brady’s Super Bowl XLIX jersey. On Tuesday evening the Associated Press published
When Marshawn Lynch retired out of the blue, with a simple tweet in the middle of Super Bowl 50, it was shocking. Maybe it shouldn’t be so surprising that Lynch comeback rumors are swirling after a year off. There was a report from The MMQB that Lynch wanted to come back to play for the Oakland Raiders
Whatever the top decision makers for the Cleveland Browns are doing this Tuesday is apparently more important than attending North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky’s pro-day workout. Browns coach Hue Jackson and general manager Sashi Brown won’t attend Trubisky’s workout, according to the Cleveland
The New York Jets wasted three valuable picks on quarterbacks over the last four drafts, and still had to go find a new quarterback for 2017. The Jets landed on veteran Josh McCown, who will be 38 for Week 1. At this point the only thing that might save the Jets’ quarterback situation over the long
A former executive of a newspaper company brazenly walked into the New England Patriots locker room after Super Bowl LI, allegedly took quarterback Tom Brady’s jersey and walked out without anyone stopping him. The Associated Press reported that the newspaper Diario La Prensa said one of its former
Colin Kaepernick had a pretty good season playing quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers last season, all things considered. Stuck running a team that was barely NFL quality, Kaepernick threw for 16 touchdowns to four interceptions with a solid 90.7 passer rating, and he rushed for 468 yards. There
Green Bay Packers fans can’t complain about general manager Ted Thompson not signing any impact free agents this offseason. Tight end Martellus Bennett, who was with the New England Patriots last season, signed with the Packers, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Bennett had 701 yards and seven touchdowns
One year and $8 million is all it took for the Washington Redskins to land receiver Terrelle Pryor. Pryor, who switched from quarterback to receiver and had 1,007 yards last season for the Cleveland Browns, signed with the Redskins for an $8 million deal, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said.
The Houston Texans had a lot of reasons to be excited for 2017, and one big reason for dread. With one of the more imaginative trades in recent NFL history, the Texans dumped their biggest problem. It only makes sense if the Texans also land Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
The Baltimore Ravens seemed to be talking themselves into running back Kenneth Dixon making a leap in his second year. Dixon was suspended four games for a violation of the NFL’s performance-enhancing drugs policy.
The Eagles need a weapon for quarterback Carson Wentz, who is going into his second season. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said the Eagles have signed Jeffery to a one-year, $14 million deal. Jeffery is coming off a season in which he didn’t play great and also was suspended four games for a PED violation
The Texans traded Osweiler, who signed a four-year, $72 million deal last year and had a wildly disappointing 2016 season, to the Browns on Thursday afternoon. The Texans included a 2018 second-round pick and a 2017 sixth-round pick with Osweiler to get the Browns to take that contract off their hands
