Jones, 32, spent the 2013 season with the Texans, but didn’t find much interest as a free agent outside of a workout for the Falcons.

Going into this years off season the Houston Texans knew that there would be a chance they’d lose some players that had been with the team for a long time.

MJD to owner Shad Khan: “You can’t just hop in and become a Super Bowl Champion”

The 2011 rushing champion Maurice Jones-Drew held out of training camp, lobbying for a new contract. New owner Shad Khan balked, and never budged. Jones returned late in camp, but the damage was already done. All he had left as a negotiating tactic was to put up the same type of numbers that won him the rushing title before.

All-22 Analysis - Evaluating the Colts Defense, Week 3.

Peaks and valleys seems to be the theme this year with the Colts, with an impressive first half showing on Sunday completely rendered obsolete in an awful loss at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The loss came as a result of some incredibly poor football, whether on offense or defense. The only unit I can assuage of any guilt would be the special teams coverage and return units...

Reality meets fantasy in NFL

There was only one good reason for Matt Hasselbeck to run out of bounds at the 1-yard line against Carolina. To help his fantasy football team, of course. The Tennessee quarterback set up Chris Johnson for a touchdown, something Hasselbeck said was all part of a master plan.
