Tight end prospect Dylan Chmura, son of former All-Pro Mark Chmura, committed to Michigan State on Sunday. The 6-foot-6, 225-pound recruit stars at Waukesha West (Wisc.), where his father is a coach.

In the latest news about the NFL’s handling of the New Orleans Saints bounty gate scandal, NFL general counsel Jeff Pash said on Friday that Anthony Hargrove, the former Saints defensive end, who signed with the Green Bay Packers as a free agent this offseason, was suspended by the NFL for eight games season, not for contributing to the program or because of any hits he made, but...

I decided to go with Jennings here over Fitz primarily because #85 has the best QB in the game throwing to him. Jennings posted solid numbers last year and that was with missing essentially four games. The 101 targets he received show...
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Browns aren’t interested in trading for Packers wide receiver James Jones.
