  • newWhat does positive drug test mean for Randy Gregory's draft stock?
    Nebraska DE-OLB Randy Gregory said not long ago that he was worthy of the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NFL draft. It's not clear what will happen to his stock now that the news has come down that Gregory failed a drug test at the NFL scouting combine in February.Gregory told NFL Network's Kimberly Jones that the positive test was for marijuana, even though he said he hasn't used the drug since December. In a hurtful moment, Gregory received a letter from the NFL he believed to be his invitation to the draft, allowing his father to open it and share in the moment. Instead, the letter delivered a fa…

    Tom Brady, just frolicking on the beach with his supermodel wife and kids

    Whenever Jim Harbaugh does the whole "Who's got it better than us?" thing, the proper reply really should be "Tom Brady!"Nobody is on a better run. He just won a fourth Super Bowl to take the top spot in the greatest quarterback ever debate. His wife is a supermodel who happens to make way, way more money than him, if you can believe that. He has three children. And he's off in Costa Rica on vacation (via NESN), just riding horses on the beach with his family in that post-Super Bowl glow (from his wife Gisele Bundchen's Instagram):Sure, Tom.He even had the kids bury him up to his neck on…

  • newNFL disallows Patriots 'trick' plays that stung Ravens in playoffs
    The New England Patriots took advantage of the rules to beat the Baltimore Ravens in the postseason. On Wednesday, the NFL changed the rules.The Patriots ran some four-man lines where running back Shane Vereen was on the line but ineligible and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui eligible despite lined up at what looked like a left tackle position. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh cried foul, and the league listened — now, but not then. (Harbaugh was assessed a 15-yard penalty for delay of game at the time.)"It's not something that anybody has ever done before," Harbaugh said after the game in…

  • newDid UCF receiver Breshad Perriman just run a sub-4.2-second 40-yard dash?
    We received a text message via a trusted NFL scout that, frankly, we had to check twice: He wrote that UCF wide receiver Breshad Perriman just ran a 4.15-second 40-yard dash at his pro day on Wednesday.Not a misprint. Four-one-five. That's Bo Jackson/Deion Sanders speed if true.And those are the key words: if true. We suspect that the time was not accurate, that his finger clicked the stopwatch a tenth of a second slow, with UCF not apparently having electronic timing at their facility.But when you see the school's official video — and their report of times ranging in the 4.22- to 4.27-se…

  • What a surprise: Lovie Smith indicates Buccaneers will take Jameis Winston
    Last year there was intrigue at the top of the draft. The Houston Texans, keeping their trade options open with the first overall pick, never divulged publicly who they'd take until handing in the card on draft day.There's no such intrigue this year.It became obvious at the NFL scouting combine, when Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said he was comfortable with Jameis Winston's off-field past, that Winston would be the top pick. And at the NFL owners' meetings this week, Smith basically confirmed that Winston will be the pick, even though he left himself some outs.Smith was asked if…

    There are still a few quality players remaining on the free-agent market, but for the most part the shopping has been done.There were big-name signings, under-the-radar additions and even some blockbuster trades.

    Rex Ryan: Rob could get a head coaching gig if he gets a haircut

    Rex Ryan has hit the ground in Buffalo running, bringing attitude and (deep breath) SWAG to a team in desperate need of both.At the owners' meetings this week, Ryan has been in typical form, which is to say outspoken and not particularly caring whether you agree with him. He announced his intention to "come after" New England, which is what you'd expect him to say. (What, he's supposed to concede the division in March?)Ryan also had some brotherly advice for his twin Rob, the defensive mastermind for the New Orleans Saints. Rob is head coaching material, Rex believes, except for one tiny iss…
