The Miami Dolphins 2016 season was a considerable step forward for this franchise. Adam Gase led the Phins to their first postseason appearance in eight years and a big part of that success was tied to an offense that could move the ball efficiently on the ground and through the air. If new defensive coordinator Matt Burke can get the defense up to speed, then the New England Patriots...

McDonald on Wednesday when news broke that free agent was suspended eight games by the NFL for a DWI case he resolved earlier this year.Surely, both the Dolphins and McDonald knew a suspension was coming.

The NFL has slapped McDonald with an eight...
With so many questions swirling on offense for the St. Louis Rams, the defense is ready to rise to the occasion. Often viewed as one of the best front-sevens in the league, the St. Louis defense is loaded with young talent ready to rise to the occasion. Perhaps one of the brighter stars, however, resides in the secondary and goes by the name of T.J McDonald. McDonald got off to a...
Will T.J. McDonald be recognized as one of the premier safeties in the NFL after the 2015 season? If last year was any indication, the St. Louis Rams third-year safety out of USC showed signs of becoming an elite player. T.J.

Still, the secondary seemed to have issues, as Seattle and Kansas City had no issue moving the ball down the field during the Rams’ next two games, which the team split. After seven games, the Rams sat at 2-5, and their disappointing...
Vernon Davis was the victim of possibly the most painful tackle in NFL history.
