NFL Awards Compensatory Draft Picks

We got our last piece of the draft puzzle Friday when the NFL, using a formula they refuse to release, awarded teams compensatory draft picks based on players they lost in free agency. And I’m not kidding about the NFL keeping the process a secret. They do and no one can explain why. Regardless of that, compensatory picks are worth …

Broncos Pass on Okung; Verner Cut

Offensive tackle Russell Okung will be released into the wind come March as the Denver Broncos informed the former Pro Bowler that they would not pick up his option for 2017. The move gives the Broncos another $10.9 million in cap money to spend this season and avoids a huge $9.5 million hit in 2018. Okung was a first round …

It Has Been Zero Days Since Jameis Winston Embarrassed Himself

It was a good run for Jameis Winston, maybe the best of this adult life. For nearly two full years he had done nothing to embarrass himself, his team or his family until Wednesday when he told a whole room full of elementary school girls they needed to keep their mouths shut.

NFL Draft Quarterback Rankings Part 2

Continuing my NFL pre-draft quarterback rankings, we’re still dealing guys I feel need work to be NFL starters, but at worst could be quality back ups. In the grand scheme of things there’s no real problem with that. Consider that there are 32 NFL teams right now and no one would argue there are currently 32 starter-level NFL quarterbacks in …

Jets Could Shed Revis After Arrest

It’s no secret to anyone that Revis Island was a veritable resort destination last season. The fall-off from his previous Pro Bowl form was clear to even Darrelle Revis himself and there was little doubt he and the New York Jets would have to come to some kind of money-related understanding this offseason. Revis’ current legal situation just made that …

Looking to recoup some of the money they tossed into the fireplace last season, the Miami Dolphins have cut defensive end Mario Williams.

Along with Williams, the Dolphins set defensive …
