        Marvin Lewis: Relaxed celebration rules 'not good example for young people'

        Marvin Lewis said the NFL’s relaxed celebration rules are not a good example for young people. (AP) CHICAGO — The NFL’s newly relaxed TD celebration rules have become official, and most observers are rejoicing the change. Don’t count Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis among them. The NFL’s second-longest tenured head coach (behind Bill Belichick) and a longtime member of the league’s competition committee spoke out against the allowance of group celebrations, using the ball as a prop and other more liberal expressions of joy on the field.

        Ben Roethlisberger '110 percent' committed to 2017, not beyond that yet

        Once retirement talk starts for a great player, it doesn’t end until the player officially calls it quits. Then the player retires and we all fantasize about when they’ll come back. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger got the ball rolling this offseason. He considered retirement, and considered it seriously. Roethlisberger was asked on Tuesday about former Steelers offensive lineman Willie Colon’s comments to Pro Football Talk that he was seriously considering stepping away. “What, did you think I was lying?” Roethlisberger told a group of reporters (h/t to Jeremy Fo…

        Veteran receiver Brandon Marshall, now with the New York Giants, has certainly figured out how to endear himself to reporters. In part by becoming a member of the media himself. Teammates? Maybe not so much. New York Jets defensive lineman/linebacker Sheldon Richardson was on the roster with Marshall for the 2015 and 2016 seasons, and on Tuesday as he spoke to reporters during the Jets’ offseason program he made it pretty clear that he’s not missing the receiver: Sheldon Richardson and the "15 reasons" #Jets locker room is better/more comfortable this offseason. pic.twitter.com/FWWIV3VwvI…

Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan was the first to report that Irving failed a test for banned supplements. The suspension isn’t official; Irving will appeal because he said he accidentally took the supplement. The story takes a bit of an odd turn: The banned supplement came from a company Irving had a marketing deal with, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. [Fa…
