Dallas' best cornerback last year, Scandrick was to make just $1.5 million this season, which was set to be fourth among the team's cornerbacks once first-round pick Byron Jones of Connecticut signed.

    Hundreds of former players have filed a lawsuit claiming all 32 NFL teams, their doctors, trainers and medical staffs obtained and provided painkillers to players - often illegally - as part of a decades-long conspiracy to keep them on the field without regard for their long-term health. The lawsuit reprises some of the allegations made in a federal lawsuit last year on behalf of 1,300 former players against the NFL. Alsup wrote that the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the NFL Players Association was the appropriate forum to resolve such claims.

In addition, returning a blocked kick, fumble, or interception on a point-after try will now be worth two points for the defense.I hate this rule change so much.

  • Justin Smith Officially Retiring
    Justin Smith is officially retiring, which everyone pretty much expected anyway. I prefer players announcing their retirement right after their actual final season more than this recently popular practice of sitting around a couple years hoping you get one last contract, then signing a one-day deal with the team you are most identified with just so you can retire.read more

Other reports, such as from Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, say that the NFL said late Friday it had not made an official decision on the matter. Relations between the union and the league were clearly strained before that…

    It seems like our list of "Hard Knocks" candidates is down to three, and no, the Cleveland Browns aren't on the list.The Browns did not want to be on the HBO reality show that follows a team through training camp, because quarterback Johnny Manziel is returning from a stint in rehab and he doesn't need that kind of spotlight on him.
