CECIL SHORTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cecil Shorts takes pay cut to avoid getting cut

Despite being loaded at the wide receiver position, the Houston Texans have opted to hang onto 28-year-old wideout Cecil Shorts III. While his first season with the Texans last year was underwhelming, the experienced receiver could prove to be a valuable slot receiver this coming season.

Cecil Shorts: Blake Bortles is going to be a 'superstar'

By Rachel Wold It’s hard to get too excited about one preseason game, but Jacksonville Jaguars second-year quarterback Blake Bortles actually looked quite impressive. He completed 11 of 15 passes for 118 yards in a Friday night victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, 23-21.
