For much of Newton's career, his every action sparked national attention. Now, it's his reaction -- to his recovery, to his release -- that will define the reinvention of one of the most dynamic athletes the NFL has seen.
Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a memo that the NFL draft will go on as scheduled next month, while adding "public discussion of issues relating to the draft serves no useful purpose and is grounds for disciplinary action."
Four days after the Panthers dumped quarterback Cam Newton, he continues to prepare for his second act.

Sh-t, I been a dog.” Indeed he has. […]

Saints G.M. Mickey Loomis is praising quarterback Drew Brees for taking a team-friendly deal.

In this world without live sports, we’ve got to find something to talk about. Earlier this week, Bills receiver Stefon Diggs helped fill the vacuum with one simple tweet: “Top 5 wideouts to ever play the game . . . GO.” Simms and I did just that on PFT Live, with a five-round draft of […]
Some teams will embrace the unusual circumstances of the 2020 draft as a way to make excuses if/when their picks become busts. 49ers G.M.

It wasn’t long after the negotiating window for free agents opened on March 16 that news broke of cornerback James Bradberry agreement on a deal with the Giants.

When Eli Manning announced his retirement, he avoided breaking a record that he probably would have broken with another season as a starter: The record for the most losses by a starting quarterback in NFL history. That record currently belongs to Vinny Testaverde, who lost 123 games as a starter during his long NFL career. […]
After almost all of the top free agents across the NFL agreed to contracts within the first few days of free agency, Jadeveon Clowney remains unsigned, and no one seems to know what his future holds.
