Taylor Mays reunites with Raiders defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr., who was an assistant coach at USC while Mays was there.  This familiarity...

The Minnesota Vikings continued their slow burn through free agency last week by making a couple of small peanut signings. Small in dollar amount and likely impact, but BIG in shirtlessness!
