Raiders owner Mark Davis, reacting to widespread criticism of a tweet sent from the team's account after Derek Chauvin was convicted of murdering George Floyd, says the post was his idea and he does not plan to delete it.
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter by a jury for his role in the murder of George Floyd last May outside of a local convenience store.
Leagues pledged to stand with pro and amateur athletes since the murder of George Floyd. After former police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on Tuesday, we look at the leagues' actions and inactions -- and the work that still needs to be done.
On April 7, former NFL player Phillip Adams shot and killed six people, including two children, in his hometown of Rock Hill, South Carolina, before killing himself. Why? Nobody can say for sure. But here's what we know.
As the Browns went through the 2020 season, quarterback Baker Mayfield clearly progressed within head coach Kevin Stefanski’s offensive scheme. Now as the team begins its second offseason with Stefanski at the helm, the head coach is hoping Mayfield’s comfort with the system is “significantly better.” “I hope as he starts to listen to the […]
Marcus Mariota took a pay cut in order to remain with the Raiders this offseason and that leaves him in line to be Derek Carr‘s backup for the second straight season. There was talk of trading Mariota, but the Raiders didn’t find a match. His initial salary and the bad ending to his run as […]
This item isn’t about the possibility of Colin Kaepernick returning to the NFL. He won’t be. The NFL and its teams successfully have run out the clock in that regard; his shunning has lasted long enough that it now makes no sense at all for anyone to give him a chance to return to the […]
When the Bengals announced Zac Taylor would return for a third season back in January, quarterback Joe Burrow said at the time he was excited about the decision. Burrow had foraged a solid relationship with Taylor as a rookie, and noted he thought the team was in position to make a significant step forward in […]
In 2015, the NFL shut down an effort by Tony Romo to host a fantasy football convention in a Las Vegas facility at which no gambling happens.

Former University of Miami defensive end Gregory Rousseau is seen as one of the top edge prospects in this year’s draft class, but where he ranks has been the subject of some debate in the last couple of days.

At Alabama, wide receiver DeVonta Smith was listed at 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds. At the school’s Pro Day, Smith declined to be measured or weighed, but said his weight was 170. It turns out he’s a little smaller than that. Albert Breer of SI.com reports that Smith was weighed and measured at the recent medical […]
When the Packers had the draft’s 30th overall pick last year, they opted to look out for their long-term future by trading up to select Jordan Love. Now the Bills have the 30th overall pick. While they’re also in a clear contention window, General Manager Brandon Beane said in his Tuesday press conference that Buffalo […]
The Saints will head into the 2021 with a new starting quarterback for the first time since the 2006 season and no one knows exactly what the offense is going to look like without Drew Brees at the helm. It will be some time before we know whether Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston will be […]
The Giants have made the playoffs once since winning Super Bowl XLVI and they’ve gone 18-46 over the last four seasons, so it was little surprise to hear co-owner John Mara say recently that he’s getting impatient for the team to put up better results. That impatience played out in free agency. The team usually […]
Taysom Hill has shifted the focus of his offseason workouts to playing quarterback full-time ahead of his competition with Jameis Winston for the starting job in New Orleans. During a speech to kids at a football camp held by one of his Florida State teammatess, Winston spent some time making it clear that he’s putting […]
It continues to be anonymous scout season. But a former NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year is pushing back against the latest effort to possibly spark the slide of a top prospect via the whispering of criticism to a reporter without the attachment of a name to it. It happened after Ian Rapoport of […]
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow says he is not, contrary to some reports, lobbying the team to draft his old LSU teammate Ja’Marr Chase with the fifth overall pick in next week’s NFL draft. And he’s not lobbying for Oregon left tackle Penei Sewell, either. Burrow told Cris Collinsworth on a Pro Football Focus podcast that […]
In the aftermath of the verdict that found Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts in connection with the murder of George Floyd, the Raiders have created an unexpected controversy via a heavily-criticized tweet. “I can breathe,” the team said from an account with 1.7 million followers. “That’s my tweet,” owner Mark Davis said, via the […]
Running back Dare Ogunbowale signed his exclusive rights tender to remain in Jacksonville. Ogunbowale, 26, initially signed with the Jaguars on Sept. 10, four days after the Buccaneers waived him. He took the roster spot of Devine Ozigbo, who was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Ogunbowale appeared in 14 games with two […]
A report earlier this month indicated Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is “infatuated” with Florida tight end Kyle Pitts. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones acknowledged his father’s interest in Pitts in an interview with 105.3 The Fan this week. “I think he’s certainly giving his view on what a unique football player Kyle Pitts is,” […]
Joe Burrow underwent reconstructive knee surgery Dec. 2, leaving only nine months before the 2021 season opener. It left doubt about whether he would miss the beginning of his second season. The Bengals quarterback has no doubt. “I’m very optimistic about where I’m at and also where the team is at,” Burrow told Cris Collinsworth […]
Taysom Hill was listed as a quarterback on the roster for the Saints the past four seasons. But, while playing behind Drew Brees, Hill was as much halfback, fullback, slot receiver, outside receiver, tight end and core special teams player. Brees retired earlier this offseason, leaving Hill to compete with Jameis Winston for the starting […]
Many shook their heads when witnessing former Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston‘s notorious “eat a W” pregame speech. Among those who shook their heads were Winston’s teammates. “I was right in the heart of it,” linebacker Lavonte David told TheUndefeated.com, via JoeBucsFan.com. “My boy Jameis, he’s a very, very, very energetic, animated guy. That was just […]
