This Given Sunday:
The print news/magazine industry is in poor shape, and it's a dying industry. That's why I, along with nearly everyone else with a computer and an internet connection, was shocked when the NFL introduced its official print magazine late last year, and it comes as no surprise that the magazine is making a quiet exit.
The failure of an NFL run venture is in and of itself surprising. The magazine's publisher, the Dauphin Media Group, is closing its doors as well.
The rise of the internet has largely been a death blow to the physical print industry. If you don't believe me, just consider that you're reading about the failing of a print magazine on a website (unless Ben Koo authorized a printed version of TGS that I didn't know about).
Also consider where we now get the majority of our news, especially sports news. Either we're watching Sports Center on ESPN or we're reading Adam Schefter's tweets as news breaks. The world has made a decisive shift ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Earlier today I ranted rather strongly about ESPN, wondering aloud if this is the most sad, pathetic day in the network’s history. (In case you aren’t aware of the two sad, pathetic events that occurred today, read up.)
But I am not anti-ESPN or the sake of being anti-ESPN. So when the network or someone associated with it does something noteworthy, I will also call attention...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, free agent defensive tackle Aubreyo Franklin is visiting the Seattle Seahawks today.
Franklin played with the New Orleans Saints in 2011, but diddn’t seem to have the same effect he did with the 49ers the previous four seasons.
The 31 year-old Franklin will now look to pro-long his NFL career elsewhere, and that could end up being Seattle...

Being one of our favorite shows on television, we were disappointed when HBO's Hard Knocks became the victim of the NFL's prolonged labor unrest. While most NFL teams are ranking players...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III is in Washington today, meeting with the Redskins for a pre-draft visit.
Girffin isn’t allowed to work out for the Redskins, but visiting them will give him an oppurtunity to check out their team facility and for the Redskins to get to know him more on a personal level before the draft.
We know Griffin...
Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Wednesday on NFL Live that Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace has no plans to sign his one-year, $2.742 million tender. Schefter added that Wallace plans to sit out all of the Steelers offseason workouts until the two sides reach a long-term contract agreement.

Mike Wallace is reportedly considering holding out of Steelers training camp and waiting as long as he can to sign his restricted free agent tender.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via Evan Silva, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace doesn’t plan on signing his restricted free agent tender, so he won’t be attending OTA’s next week.
“He is not going to sign that (RFA) tender, which means he is not going to be at OTA’s with the Steelers, said Schefter, per Silva.
With clearly no teams interested in signing...
Adam Schefter reported on NFL Live this afternoon that Mike Wallace will not be signing his RFA Tender. Wallace will skip all of the offseason programs. He plans to hold out until he gets a long term deal. That is the only deal he plans on signing.
Wallace had reported interest in getting a Larry Fitzgerald type deal. Many thought that it was to see if he could get more then...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with free agent cornerback Terence Newman.
The acquisition of Newman will give the Bengals some depth at the cornerback position, which is vital in the modern-day NFL.
Even at the age of 33, Newman was able to record 4 interceptions in 2011.
