The Bull Gator:
He’s the recruit everyone had their eye on, for a while now. Being the son of a former Florida Gators’ great is one thing; breaking the career state rushing record of another is one more. There are many things that turned Kelvin Taylor into one of the nation’s most sought after running backs; his connections to Fred Taylor and Emmitt Smith are just a couple. The 2013 RB more than lives up to the comparisons and the hype and on February 18, he made Gator Nation extremely happy.

There’s an old 80’s song by the rock group Abba, “I know there is something going on” and Wes Welker must have the same feeling.
As contract negotiations have come to a grinding halt, Welker witnessed Rob Gronkowski land a 6-Year, $54 million deal. Bill Belichick knows how to make a slap in the face seem more like a punch.
Welker turned down a 2-Year, $16 million...
POURING IT ON
Seriously, since about ten minutes after the Super Bowl ended, has any NFL player had a more eventful offseason than Rob Gronkowski? The Party Pat reportedly poured drinks on some women at a karaoke bar.
I don’t think we give Wes Welker enough credit. He signed his Franchise Tender on time, hasn’t missed any camps, and looks like he’s ready to dominate another season. It’s easy for those in the media to cry for the players who get franchised. “He needs a long term deal! Where’s his security!”.
Well it sure has been nice for Wes to keep it in perspective that he’s...
Bill Belichick addressed the media before the first day of mandatory mini camp. In his usual fashion, he glossed over the fluff and brushed aside any distractions. When asked about the recent release of Chad Ochocinco, he stated:
"Well, I don't know. The bottom line is that's in the past; we're focused on today and trying to go out there and think about when...
Last week, record setting New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski received a very generous contract extension from the franchise. Should teammate Aaron Hernandez now expect a similar contract extension from the Patriots? The tight end tandem entered the league in 2010, each signing four-year rookie deals, Hernandez will become a free agent after the 2013 season. The duo make...
The New England Patriots made some additions to their roster early this week. They signed rookie free agent TE Tyler Urban who played his college football at West Virginia.
They also added WR Jesse Holley, a former Dallas Cowboy. Holley, who played at North Carolina, spent the last three seasons in Dallas after winning a shot at a tryout by winning Michael Irvin’s reality...
Chad Ochocinco and Miami could be the perfect match. That idea isn't based on the potential for on-field success, which is there for Ochocinco given the Dolphins' lack of receiving depth. Instead, it's the result of just how entertaining the polarizing veteran's Miami tenure could be. Upon learning that the Dolphins would be featured on this year's version of...
The Chad Ochocinco experiment didn't work out in New England. But it looks like the Patriots are going to test their luck with another reality TV star. Jesse Holley, a 28-year-old receiver and winner of the reality TV series 4th and Long, signed with the Patriots on Monday. After going undrafted out of North Carolina in the 2007 NFL Draft, Holley was signed to the Cincinnati...
The New England Patriots have claimed tight end Jake Ballard off waivers from the New York Giants.
Also, the Patriots placed rookie tight end Brad Herman on injured reserve Tuesday.
Ballard, 24, spent two seasons with the Giants after being signed as a rookie free agent out of Ohio State in 2010. He was released by the Giants on Monday after he failed a physical. Ballard tore the...
Hot News for WR Chad Ochocinco
Ochocinco is coming home ! Love him or hate, but Chad Ochocinco is now a Miami Dolphins. The very mediocre Dolphins receiving core gets a very interesting facelift!
While there will be sceptics, including myself who is not sure how I feel about the move but none the less the circus is coming to town. Chad certainly a character is a player who comes to work everyday, puts his all...
The Miami Dolphins have signed free agent wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, just days after the New England Patriots released the enigmatic superstar for not being able to learn their offense. The Dolphins quickly pounced on bringing in an aging diva wide receiver for a one year contract to improve their receiving corps.
Miami did not sign Ochocinco to help make the team...
The New England Patriots were awarded New York Giants tight end Jake Ballard off the waiver wire, the team announced.
Hmmm, wondering if BB’s non-denominational look is due to the Reebok-Nike switch. Like he’s still waiting for Nike to send him a satisfactory hoodie that he’s willing to saw the arms off of.
