New York Giants: Time To Trade Osi Umenyiora?

Last offseason, GM Jerry Reese and Giants' DE Osi Umenyiora were engaged in a bitter battle regarding his contract. Umenyiora wanted the Giants to tear up his old contract and give him a new one.

Cincinnati Bengals trade Keith Rivers to the New York Giants

Trade for Cincinnati: Rivers is an above average linebacker when healthy, but the Bengals have a good depth of linebackers already (Maualuga, Manny Lawson, Thomas Howard, and 2011 3rd rounder Dontay Moch) and they had one of the best defenses in the league last season without Rivers playing a snap. Rivers is an injury risk going forward and would likely not be resigned as a free...

No Kickoffs For You

Slowly, inexorably, deliberately, the NFL is moving closer and closer to flag football and further and further away from what it once was. Soon, it may be completely unrecognizable. Last year, the NFL decided to change kickoffs from the 30 yard line to the 35 in what they said was an effort to reduce injuries.
