Colts Pick Up Fifth Year Option on Andrew Luck

Colts Pick Up Fifth Year Option on Andrew Luck

This was an absolute no-brainer. The Indianapolis Colts have picked up the fifth year option on Andrew Luck, who initially singed a 4-year, $22 million contract after being selected first overall a few years back. In no time, Luck has taken a team from dead last to title contender. He’ll be the highest paid player [...]

Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell Suspended For First 3 Games of 2015 Season

Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell Suspended For First 3 Games of 2015 Season

Le’Veon Bell had an eye-opening season for the Pittsburgh Steelers and pretty much carried the offense along with Antonio Brown (and Big Ben, of course). The knee injury that ended his season looked a lot worse than it ended up being, so fans were excited that he’d be back to start next season. But not [...]

Wes Welker to Visit With the Dolphins

Wes Welker to Visit With the Dolphins

Because Wes Welker elevated to NFL prominence with the Patriots, we seem to forget that he has a career before landing in New England. He began his career with the Dolphins (after a very brief stint with San Diego) and was so successful against division-rival New England, that they traded for him in 2007 But [...]

Tony Romo Owes Duke’s Jahlil Okafor a Superbowl Win

Last year when Duke was recruiting now Duke star player Jahlil Okafor, Tony Romo bumped into Okafor at a Duke game. The soon to be #1 pick in the 2015 NBA draft was able to snap a picture of the moment and post it to instagram. It is the caption that is interesting. Apparently they [...]

LaGarrette Blount Suspended For Week 1 of 2015 NFL Season

LaGarrette Blount Suspended For Week 1 of 2015 NFL Season

The New England Patriots picking up LaGarrette Blount midway through last season paid off big for them down the stretch. Bill Belichick implements a multi-back system and Blount fit right in. But they’ll have to do without him when the 2015 season rolls around. Blount has been suspended by the NFL for one game for [...]

LeSean McCoy Doesn’t Think Chip Kelly Likes Star Players

LeSean McCoy Doesn’t Think Chip Kelly Likes Star Players

If you think you were caught off-guard by LeSean McCoy being traded to Buffalo, imagine how surprised LeSean McCoy was. It’s rare that such a valuable piece of an offense is dealt out of the blue. Now that he’s in Buffalo, the Bills seem pretty formidable. And even though he’s entered a new chapter, that [...]

Rise and Fall of the San Francisco 49ers in Four Short Years

From the depths of mediocrity to a Super Bowl appearance and back to mediocrity, the 49ers have been through it all in the last 4 years. One of the most historic franchises found a way out of ridicule and back into contention and all it took is one simple move for all the pieces to [...]

Michael Crabtree Turns Down Offer From Dolphins

Michael Crabtree Turns Down Offer From Dolphins

Free agency has been a slow go for Michael Crabtree. There hasn’t been much talk about him visiting other suitors aside from the Dolphins several weeks ago. Miami reportedly offered him $3 million per year, but Crabtree turned that down as he’s looking for a bit more than that. If history is any indicator, Crabtree [...]

Andy Dalton’s Worth…Or Lack There Of

The Red Rifle. You don’t even need to know who that name belongs to to figure out who it could possibly be. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton earned that title shortly after entering the league and could not get stop that nickname from sticking even though he doesn’t like it. You would expect a player [...]

Tony Romo Would’ve Taken Pay Cut to Keep DeMarco Murray

Tony Romo Would’ve Taken Pay Cut to Keep DeMarco Murray

DeMarco Murray leaving Dallas for Philadelphia basically came down to money. Dallas didn’t have enough of it available to pay Murray what he wanted and Philadelphia did. Hard to blame the 27-year old, since he’ll probably be obsolete in about 2-3 years. Tony Romo is the Cowboys’ highest paid player, so contractual situations with others [...]
