      • newNew details emerge in Joe McKnight shooting and release of shooter
        After hearing criticisms of his office for releasing the man who admitted to shooting former NFL running back Joe McKnight, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand held a press conference to reveal some details of the case, including that the man who shot McKnight was in his car when he fired all three shots. McKnight was shot and killed on Thursday afternoon in New Orleans. Authorities said that Ronald Gasser, 54, shot McKnight. Gasser was released overnight, and a JPSO spokesman told the Baton Rouge Advocate he wasn’t charged “as of yet.” Gasser reportedly stayed at the scene and gave…

        Johnny Manziel’s assault case will be dropped if he meets certain requirements. (AP) Johnny Manziel’s domestic violence case has been conditionally dropped, but he still has to meet a few requirements. WFAA in Dallas reported that Manziel must complete an anger management course, attend a domestic violence victim impact panel, and take part in the NFL’s policy and program for substance abuse or a rehabilitation program. If he fulfills those requirements the assault case against him will be dropped. Manziel was accused of hitting ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley and dragging her into a car a…

        Trevor Siemian misses another practice, Paxton Lynch reportedly will start

        Trevor Siemian had one of his better games on a national stage last week against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he won’t have a chance to build on that momentum this week. Siemian missed his third straight practice on Friday and according to Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, he’ll be out against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. First-round pick Paxton Lynch will make his second career start. Siemian suffered a foot injury last Sunday, near the end of an impressive performance. Siemian had 368 yards and three touchdowns. Right when Siemian was getting hot, it appears the Broncos have to go to L…

        Cheers! Von Miller sends thank you note, bottle of wine to every player in AFC West

        It’s pretty common for quarterbacks to buy gifts for their offensive linemen (or, in the case of Tom Brady, to get Uggs for every New England Patriots teammate), and more and more often we’re seeing opposing players exchange jerseys after a game. But Denver Broncos star Von Miller decided to honor his opponents in a unique way. [Join the $100K Baller for Week 13 | Tips for your Daily lineup] Via Denver Post Broncos writer Nicki Jhabvala, Miller sent a custom bottle of wine and thank you note to every player in the AFC West. Even the ones on practice squads and injured reserve. For the reco…

        Earl Thomas watched last week's Seahawks game incognito at Buffalo Wild Wings

        If you were in a Portland-area Buffalo Wild Wings last Sunday afternoon, you probably noticed a man in sunglasses and a hoodie who seemed a little too into the Seattle Seahawks’ loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was All-Pro safety Earl Thomas. Thomas missed the first game of his career last week because of a hamstring injury and didn’t travel with the team. To take his mind off it he went with his family to Portland according to Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune. He took in a couple Trail Blazers games. But of course he was going to watch his teammates play in Tampa Bay. He said he…

        NFL against the spread picks: Chiefs-Falcons is a huge game for both teams

        This week might not be the best for compelling matchups, but there will be a good one in Atlanta. The Atlanta Falcons are one game ahead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC South. The Kansas City Chiefs’ dramatic overtime win over the Denver Broncos puts them one game behind the Oakland Raiders in the AFC West. Even though this is one of those odd non-conference games between two teams with little history against each other, it has enormous ramifications for both. It’s also strength vs. strength. The Falcons have had a great year on offense, as one of three NFL teams averaging more than…

        NFL players can wear custom cleats to promote causes important to them this week

        As has been chronicled thoroughly, the NFL’s obsession with legislating every single thing players can and cannot do includes the color and design of the shoes they wear on game days. Stray, and they’ll be fined. But for once, the league has relented. For all Week 13 games, players can wear custom-designed cleats to highlight a cause that’s important to them. If you search #MyCauseMyCleats on Twitter and Instagram you can see dozens of examples, and here are just a few: Devin McCourty, New England Patriots, and Jason McCourty, Tennessee Titans: The twins’ foundation, Tackle Sickle Ce…

        Jason Witten's receptions streak ends at 130 games after catch wiped out

        Lost a bit in the postgame shuffle of the Dallas Cowboys beating the Minnesota Vikings and running their record to 11-1 was the fact that for the first time in 130 games, Cowboys tight end Jason Witten did not catch a pass. Actually, Witten did — but it didn’t count. With just under 12 minutes remaining, Dak Prescott hit Witten for an 11-yard catch on 3rd and 8 for what would have been a big conversion as the Cowboys tried to close out the game, but the play was called back on a clear hold by Ezekiel Elliott. Dang rookies! Witten would not see an official target for the entire game as Pre…
