Bills Release RB Fred Jackson

Bills Release RB Fred Jackson

For fantasy football freaks, you know that, while not a huge name, Fred Jackson is a solid performer. He’s been that way forever in fantasy and in real life as well. Granted he’s a 34 year old running back (which is unheard of), but he’s not an every down guy, which is how he has [...]

Mike Vick to Meet with Steelers

Mike Vick to Meet with Steelers

There are quite a few big names from yesteryear still on the free agent market. Michael Vick tops that list. If he finds a team, he definitely won’t be a starter, but he would be a more than serviceable backup at this stage in his career. Might that be the case for him and the [...]

Robert Griffin III Concussed in Preseason Game

RGIII left last night’s preseason tune up vs. Detroit very early in the 1st quarter after he was sacked and ultimately knocked out of the game with a concussion. This is a make-or-break year for a guy who has been touted as a franchise savior. But this latest injury can’t be put on him. The [...]

Eli Manning Wants to be the Highest Paid QB in the League

Eli Manning Wants to be the Highest Paid QB in the League

Not only is Eli Manning the only QB to beat Tom Brady in a Super Bowl, but he has done it twice. He probably doesn’t get the credit he deserves and being Peyton Manning’s younger brother doesn’t help either. But don’t tell Eli that. He feels as if he should be the highest paid QB [...]

Jadaveon Clowney Returns to Practice

Jadaveon Clowney Returns to Practice

Jadaveon Clowney’s career has gotten off to a rough start. Injuries have had him in street clothes more so than a Texans uniform thus far. And he also underwent the dreaded microfracture knee surgery. But he’s back on the field practicing at least. Only time will tell if he’s still the player he was in [...]

Colts, T.Y. Hilton Agree on 5-Year, $65M Contract

A great QB can make any WR look spectacular. While it may be a bit premature to label Andrew Luck, he’s certainly on his way. His play has made T.Y. Hilton look like a star. Not to take anything away from Hilton, of course, because he’s very talented. But this duo should be causing havoc [...]
