Ravens' Tucker has mixed feelings on extra point change

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker hasn't missed an extra point in his career, even going back to his college days at Texas. So it's no wonder he doesn't want to see it moved back 13 yards, as the NFL voted to do on Tuesday. Tucker understands the league's desire to add excitement to a play that has become academic with a 99.5 percent success rate over the past four seasons, but he thinks...

The Patriots cut Kyle Arrington earlier this week, voiding the 6.5 million in non-guaranteed money over 2 years remaining on his contract. It was a weird move, as Arrington was a valuable slot cornerback for them, grading out above average in 4 straight seasons, including 21st in 2013, and the Patriots had already lost their starting cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner...
