MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) Larry Blakeney has been the constant of Troy football through 24 seasons and three levels of competition.
From Division II to the current Football Championship Subdivision and now the Football Bowl Subdivision, Blakeney has paced the sideline at a field now named after him. He'll do it one more time when the Trojans finish a disappointing season Saturday against...

Lawrence Tynes took to Twitter to congratulate “Eli’s Brother” after he passed Brett Favre for most career passing touchdowns, but he also trolled Peyton and all Broncos fans in the process.
Congrats to Eli's brother for breaking the TD record. #elihas2 #peytonhas1 @giants @broncos

@broncos fans why all the hate. Peyton...
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning broke Brett Favre’s record of touchdowns, getting 509 to set it. Manning finished with four touchdowns for the night in a 42-17 Broncos blowout.
That still didn’t stop Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes from respecting Manning. He had to take a couple of shots at the legend:
The facts are that you don’t get rings for breaking records. You...
The St. Louis Rams may have just pulled off one of the best special teams plays you’ll see all year.

The Rams faked out the camera man, the fans and, most importantly, the entire Seahawks special teams to extend their lead over the defending champs.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers guard Carl Nicks was a no show at OTAs on Tuesday. Nicks seems to be playing it safe with his return. Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith didn’t have much to say on the topic. No Carl Nicks at Bucs OTA today, and here’s coach Lovie Smith’s terse answer: “No update. He’s not here. He’s not here for voluntary work.” — Greg Auman (@gregauman) May 27...
This is the definition of cold world.
According to PFT, the Bucs have cut K Lawrence Tynes who missed the season due to MRSA that he got at the team facility.
There was a big debate about placing him on the non-football injury/illness list or the injured reserve list when he developed a MRSA infection last year. The team did pay his $840K salary last year but this just seems cold.
Last season was one of improvisation on special teams for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs entered the fall expecting Connor Barth, one of the franchise's most reliable kickers, to continue with his duties. However, an Achilles tear in his right leg sustained in July during a charity basketball game changed those plans.
Lawrence Tynes was signed as Barth's replacement,...
Last year at this time, the New York Giants began an off season roster purge that saw veterans Michael Boley, Chris Canty and Ahmad Bradshaw all being released after the Super Bowl. In addition, veteran defensive players Chase Blackburn, Lawrence Tynes, Kenny Phillips and Osi Umenyiora were not pursued by the Giants as unrestricted free agents. The team also felt that tight end Martellus...
Ouch! That hurts! A lot! Get the cart and take this guy back to the locker room. Let’s check out his (insert body part here) and…oh my…this doesn’t look good. Let the coach know he’s done for the year and put him on injured reserve.
That scene has played out across the NFL countless times this season. Because of how often it’s happening, we have enough players to put...
