Hosts Steve Bennett and Don Russ interview the biggest names in sports media and pop culture each week on Football Nation's The Sports-Casters podcast.

Their guest this week is Chris Burke, author of the Audibles blog on SI.COM. Burke joins the guys to chat about the death of Junior Seau, undrafted free-agents, and keeping an audience during the offseason. Burke: 
 

  • Was surprised that more Saints players weren't suspended and was blown away that Vilma got an entire season
  • He isn't a father, but in the future he doesn't think he would stop his kids from playing football despite the dangers
  • Chris Polk (RB) of the Eagles is an un-drafted free agent that could make a huge impact with the Eagles this season
  • James Rodgers of the Falcons could be their starting kick off returner this season
  • He was at Lions rookie camp this season and said Kellen Moore, "misfired on some balls that you would expect NFL quarterbacks to make..."
  • Also from Lions rookie camp, Ryan Broyles didn't work out but did hang around all weekend. Broyles hopes to be ready for training camp


Steve and Don kick off each podcast with "3 Things" but manage to tackle so much more. In this week's segment they discuss the the legal troubles of Jets NT Kenrick Ellis, the Bills signing of Vince Young, recap the Bills rookie camp, and Joe Harden's big night at the prom. Also, will MJD hold out?
