Starting this year, compensatory picks can also be traded, so this is potentially a big story for all teams.

        When the NFL announced its compensatory picks on Friday, it also closed the book on the New York Giants illegally using walkie talkies during a win over the Dallas Cowboys last season. And, it wasn’t much of a punishment. The Giants dropped 10 spots in the fourth round, from pick No. 130 to pick No. 140. That’s not nothing, but there’s also a pretty good chance it doesn’t hurt the Giants in the slightest. By that point in the fourth round, it’s quite possible whoever the Giants wanted at 130 will still be on the board at 140. There was a monetary punishment ($150,000 for the Giants o…

The picks range from the third to the seventh rounds of the 2017 NFL, and the secret formula used to determine which teams receive the picks is based on the dollar amount and talent of free agents who left teams that signed fewer free agents than they lost a year ago. But what is known: For the first time these picks can be traded. That makes them even more valuable assets to the teams receiving them. In the past, teams that received compensatory picks had…

        Gronk on Roger Goodell visiting Patriots: 'I don't even think he can even land in the airport'

        One fallout of the New England Patriots storming back to beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI is that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell likely will be compelled to visit Foxborough for the season-opening game in 2017. It’s something Goodell hasn’t done since the game that launched deflate-gate — the 2014 AFC title game there against the Indianapolis Colts — more than two years ago. Goodell’s two-year saga with Tom Brady culminated in Houston with the commissioner shaking the quarterback’s hand after his epic comeback. Goodell said before the Super Bowl that going to Gillette Stad…

      • Why Chad Kelly was invited (and then uninvited) to the NFL scouting combine

        Why Chad Kelly was invited (and then uninvited) to the NFL scouting combine

        There’s a bit of an odd story brewing with a 2017 NFL draft prospect. And it already has reached NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, which doesn’t happen every day before a prospect enters the league, even as fairly well known as the player is. Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly, the nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, put together a flashy but inconsistent college career in two years against the rugged SEC, even leading the conference in passing yards and beating Alabama in 2015. Even with character concerns and having suffered a torn ACL and meniscus late in the 2016 season, Kelly was one of t…

      • Cardinals and Cowboys to open preseason in Hall of Fame game (turf permitting)

        Cardinals and Cowboys to open preseason in Hall of Fame game (turf permitting)

        The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. (Getty Images) Mark your calendars, y’all: the NFL (or a reasonable facsimile of it) returns in 160 days. The annual Hall of Fame game will be played on Aug. 3, and on Thursday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the two teams who will take part: the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys. Both teams have a strong connection to the Hall’s Class of 2017: quarterback Kurt Warner, who led the Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance at the end of the 2008 season, and Jerry Jones, who bought the Cowboys in 1989, are members of the seven-m…

      • Jameis Winston's elementary school appearance marred by misstep

        Jameis Winston's elementary school appearance marred by misstep

        Since being drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, quarterback Jameis Winston has been making an effort to rehab his public image. After his career at Florida State was marred by a rape allegation, accusations of stealing crab legs from a supermarket and a one-game suspension for repeatedly yelling a sexually-explicit phrase in front of other students on campus, it was necessary work. As part of that work, Winston was at Melrose Elementary School in Tampa on Wednesday, and while trying to encourage the male fifth-graders in the room, he put down the girls. His intentions are up for debate, but i…

      • Tom Brady face plants while skiing, Patriots fans pass out momentarily

        Tom Brady face plants while skiing, Patriots fans pass out momentarily

        Tom Brady isn’t an old man at 39 years old, but in football terms he’s practically a senior citizen. So New England Patriots fans probably didn’t see the humor in Brady posting an Instagram video of what appears to be him skiing, and then wiping out “Wide World of Sports” style after a small jump. If you french fry when you're supposed to pizza, you're gonna have a bad time! Trust me!!! A post shared by Tom Brady (@tombrady) on Feb 23, 2017 at 6:45am PST For a guy who won’t eat a strawberry because of his insane, hard-core diet designed to keep him playing forever, Brady i…
