He is not the first player to do this and won’t be the last, but what was particularly interesting about...

Some QBs just aren't worthy of the "elite" title yet. Or are they? According to a few players around the league, Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco and Tony Romo belong in the rarefied air that Tom Brady, Drew Brees and co breath.
Ndamukong Suh is still one of the game's most recognizable young stars, and he's eager to bounce back with a big season.
Suh took the NFL a bit by storm as a rookie in 2010, finishing the season with 10 sacks and anchoring a Detroit defensive line that looked like it had the potential to be among the league's best. Last year, he had only four sacks, and he made as much...
I hate summer.
Hear me out. Baseball is fine and the Summer Olympics are keeping my interests, but I really miss fall and winter sports.
I watched reruns of games I knew the ending to. I have picked my fantasy lineup. I have been keeping up with offseason news in anticipation for the season to arrive.
Unfortunately, I’m a Saints fan.
It’s been a rough summer.
