Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said he hired Joe Barry as defensive coordinator in large part because of his communication skills.

Linebacker Kyle Van Noy‘s time with the Dolphins is up. Van Noy was informed by the team that he will be released after playing one year of the four-year contract he signed with them as a free agent last year. Van Noy released a statement saying he was not expecting the move and felt he […]

It was strange to see J.J. Watt signing with the Cardinals on Monday. It was even stranger to see Watt landing in Arizona on a team plane and actually visiting the team. According to the NFL, free agents currently may travel to a new team for a visit and/or a physical. The player must pass […]
The Raiders have been to the playoffs one time since losing Super Bowl XXXVII to the Buccaneers — in 2016, when the club went 12-4 and lost to the Texans in the wild-card round. That year, quarterback Derek Carr was a fringe MVP candidate before fracturing his fibula late in the team’s Week 16 win […]
Cornerback Johnathan Joseph may not be playing with J.J. Watt as a member of the Cardinals in 2021, but a chat with his former Texans teammate may have helped Watt land in Arizona.

The defensive end joined the Saints late in the 2019 season, and re-upped with the club last March. But he tore his ACL while working out during last year’s offseason […]
It should be no surprise that the coach who advocates kneecap-biting (we know it’s not literal, but still) has other views that may not be entirely in the pro football mainstream. Here’s another opinion from Lions coach Dan Campbell that misses the mark. Via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Campbell characterized on Tuesday […]
Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach noted it’s unlikely the club will bring back Sammy Watkins for 2021. But Kansas City will likely address receiver in some way during the offseason. Watkins and Demarcus Robinson are both slated to become unrestricted free agents, leaving the club with Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman as its top two […]
Last week, agent Mark Rodgers said that client Russell Wilson: (1) has not asked to be traded; (2) wants to stay in the Seattle; and (3) in the event he were to be traded, he’d accept a trade to the Raiders, Bears, Cowboys, or Saints. That clear signal to the Raiders, Bears, Cowboys, or Saints […]

Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola, and Mohamed Sanu are all set for free […]
The Cardinals reportedly have signed defensive lineman J.J. Watt to a two-year, $31 million deal with $23 million guaranteed. “Reportedly” is the key word because, frankly, there have been too many instances over the years where reporters rush to Twitter with whatever an agent tells them without scrutinizing or expressing skepticism about the information. (And, […]
The 5-year-old girl who was in a car hit by then-Chiefs assistant Britt Reid suffered permanent injuries, her family says.
