  • new49ers announce 4-year deal with DT Earl Mitchell (The Associated Press)
    When Earl Mitchell got a head start on free agency after being released last week by the Miami Dolphins, the San Francisco 49ers managed to sell him on familiarity with coaches rather than past success for the team. After mostly sitting out free agency last offseason, the Niners beat out Atlanta, Seattle and Denver for Mitchell's services by officially signing him to a four-year $16 million contract on Saturday. Mitchell will be paid $5.5 million in 2017, a person familiar with the deal said on condition of anonymity because terms were not released.

The Patriots can’t really pay $20 million or so to franchise tag Brady’s backup, they can’t give Garoppolo a starting-quarterback-level contract with Brady still in place, and one would have to imagine Garoppolo would want to go somewhere else and start.

  • The Mulligan: Why Matt Ryan deserves a Super Bowl do-over
    Welcome to The Mulligan, where we examine the athletes, coaches, teams, referees, oddsmakers or anyone else in sports who should get a do-over for a bad beat that might not have been entirely in their control. This week, we look at Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan’s Super Bowl effort and why he deserves a mulligan for that game.Matt Ryan. He’s the NFL MVP and the greatest quarterback in Atlanta Falcons history. He was the third pick in the draft, a first team All-American, and scored an impressive 32 on the Wonderlic exam. But his team was up 28-3 in the Super Bowl and they lost in overtime.…

  • Top 10 takeaways from the NFL season that was
    The 2016 NFL season was full of drama and intrigue. It started with New England Patriots finding themselves without Tom Brady for the first four games. It ended with Brady hoisting his fifth Lombardi right in front of the man who stripped him of those first four games.In between, the season had its ups and downs. Ratings took a nose dive during the early part of the year, partly due to both a lackluster product and the election itself.That gave way to a pretty dramatic conclusion of the season that saw both the Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys surprise the masses with playoff spots.Meanwhil…

  • Report: Chip Kelly has 'real chance' to become Falcons OC
    The Atlanta Falcons had the best offense in football this season, but the man who called plays for the unit is moving on to take a head coaching job with the San Francisco 49ers next season. Is Chip Kelly capable of filling his shoes?According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Falcons quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur — one of the favorites to take over for Kyle Shanahan as offensive coordinator — could end up heading to Los Angeles to work with new Rams head coach Sean McVay. If that happens, Kelly could be Atlanta’s next choice. That meshes with a report from earlier in the week that claimed…

  • Six former diamonds in the rough starring in Super Bowl LI
    In order to even make it to a Super Bowl, NFL teams have to have good enough regular seasons to make the playoffs and then run the gauntlet of playoff football in January. Of course, health is a key factor for most Super Bowl teams, as is the spark from getting hot at the right time. Some luck plays into it as well, but the best teams in the NFL know how to make their own luck, and that usually starts in the NFL Draft.Teams that have the power to make Super Bowl runs are usually deep teams filled with talent all the way up and down the depth chart.
