1

In a surprising move, the Patriots traded 6x Pro Bowl OG Logan Mankins to the Buccaneers in exchange for TE Timothy Wright and an undisclosed draft pick

Popular National Opinion

The Cowboys' defense could go from worst to collegiate. Cap mismanagement forced them to release DeMarcus Ware and lose Jason Hatcher in free agency. Linebacker Sean Lee, easily their best defensive player, is out for the season with a torn ACL. The No. 34 overall pick in the draft, Demarcus Lawrence, broke his foot and is expected to miss the first three to six games of the season. Their best cornerback of late, Orlando Scandrick, was suspended the first four games of the season for violating the league's policy against performance-enhancing drugs. Notable Madden ratings 1. Dez Bryant - 94 2. Tony Romo - 91 3. Demarco Murray - 89 4. Jason Witten - 93 Click HERE for all ratings The Cowboys are bad and unlucky. Even the players that appear talented like cornerbacks like Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr were picked to fit a system that is long gone. This is an organization that has consistently lacked a cohesive vision.

Test could revolutionize concussion protocol

1

It can't be used during a game, but the player and team would have the results the next morning. It would also take away the "cheating" the concussion protocol results that currently happens.

Jets starting CB Patterson no shows for preseason game

He ate the pregame meal, then went AWOL. The Jets didn't hear from him till 2 days later and how now suspended him indefinitely till they figure out what to do with him.

Meriweather suspended 2 games for helmet-to-helmet hit

1

The NFL announced on Monday that Meriweather, who has long had a reputation as a head hunter, will be suspended for the first two games of the season. This is the sixth time Meriweather has been disciplined for hits to an opposing player's head. A year ago, the NFL gave him a two-game suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit, though it was reduced to one game on appeal. With the track record he has, Meriweather may not be so lucky, assuming he does in fact appeal this particular suspension.

When the season starts its all about Football....the money can wait

"Once the season starts, I'm all in, I've got this team to worry about. ...The work that I put in, the love, the real love, the real passion that I have for this game overtakes everything." -- Dez Bryant And the wonderful thing is, we know its not just lip service. That's why he's going to be paid. But I wouldn't doubt if the FO is trying to get a similar deal done to that of Tyron's contract and Dez's agent isnt biting.

And the team players would least want to play for...

+

Somewhat surprising that the Browns were more popular than both the Raiders (worst) and the Bills. Guess those Green Bay winters aren't too popular with players either.
