    Patriots snag Tyler Gaffney off waivers from Panthers

    The Panthers didn’t really need sixth-round running back Tyler Gaffney this year anyway, so when he was injured recently, stashing him on IR made sense. But the Patriots had other ideas. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Patriots claimed Gaffney off waivers, even though he needs season-ending knee surgery. It’s similar to their 2012…

    Lions postpone talks with Suh until after season (Yahoo Sports)

    The Detroit Lions are postponing contract talks with All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh until after the season. Suh is entering the final season of his contract, and team president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew said before practice Monday that negotiations are being tabled. If the two sides can't reach a deal after the season, the Lions could still keep Suh by using their franchise tag on him. ...

    Shutdown Countdown: Philadelphia Eagles' offense will be strong, again

    Shutdown Corner is previewing all 32 teams as we get ready for the NFL season, counting down the teams one per day in reverse order or our initial 2014 power rankings.

    NFL VP defends Ray Rice suspension, appears tone deaf to public outcry

    Commissioner Roger Goodell might be the one handing down discipline in the NFL, but he doesn't always have to be the first to respond to criticism for it.The league sent out of NFL vice president labor policy and government affairs Adolpho Birch as a human bullet shield on ESPN in lieu of Goodell on Monday after Friday's two-game suspension for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, discipline that roundly was met with contempt from the public.“It is multiple games and hundreds of thousands of dollars. I think it’s fair to say that doesn’t reflect that you condone the behavior,”…

    Jerry Jones was 'that close' to making Johnny Manziel a Cowboy

    It almost happened, everybody: the perfect marriage of unhinged player and untethered town, the match of talent and spotlight and hedonism that the NFL hasn't seen since Joe Namath in the early '70s. Johnny Manziel was almost a Cowboy.You remember draft night from earlier this year, yes? Manziel's fate was one of the draft's biggest stories, and as he fell further down the draft board, the realization dawned: he might be available for Dallas! How amazing would that be?On paper (or, you know, iPhone) it all seemed perfect: Texas kid joins the Texas royal family, learns the ropes from the agi…

    When people argue about the best cornerback in the NFL, Dee Milliner's name rarely gets brought up. OK, it never gets brought up.
