NFL Trade Rumors:
ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes that Lions doctors “don’t want to be responsible for” RB Jahvid Best, which is why he has yet to be cleared.
Best, 23, has been dealing with post-concussion syndrome for some time now, but the Lions will have to decide whether or not to active him or place him on season-ending injured reserve.
Best reportedly “feels great,” but there’s no question that there are concerns about him playing football again. Schefter adds that there are some who wonder if Best has already played his last down in the NFL.

His name is Titus Young.
Young has 15 receptions for 181 yards and two touchdowns in the last two games, surpassing his production from the first five games combined. He has been under the radar for much of his short career, but the second-year pro isn't anymore...

It's official. The halfway point of the season has arrived and can we just pull over for a second and take a breather? I mean, Calvin Johnson is miles behind us and is lost in some overrated city named Detroit. Arian Foster keeps churning and has established himself as a reliably legit “fantasy workhorse” that will go down in...
No Game Balls This Week
For the second straight week, I have the depressing task of writing What Went Wrong, instead of dishing out Seahawks Game Balls. I hate this part!
Can’t we win every week? Win Forever maybe? Evidently, not this week.
This isn’t the Worst Part!!!
That’s right, 12′s! For the first time in a long time, I’m more upset with the...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via Evan Silva, the Carolina Panthers are still taking calls on possibly trading running back DeAngelo Williams and he could end up being traded.
“Could be on the move. Panthers continue to listen to phone calls. There is interest from other teams,” said Schefter.
With Williams being 29 years-old, I wouldn’t bother trading for him with all...
With tomorrow’s trade deadline almost here we already know that DeAngelo Williams could end up getting traded and Tim Tebow isn’t going anywhere.
Right now it doesn’t look like Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe will be leaving Kansas City.
