Five NFL trades worth pondering

The NBA and MLB trade deadlines bring a lot more rumors, activity and, well, actual trades than the NFL's midseason trading deadline. Last year, we saw three notable players -- Carson Palmer, Brandon Lloyd and Ronnie Brown -- moved right before the deadline. This year, the NFL pushed the deadline back two more weeks.

Steelers, AFC North salary cap – continued evidence of how good front offices get it done

Something interesting, at least I think so, when it comes to the NFL salary cap status of all NFL teams as they head into training camp in a few weeks now; how close just is everyone to the cap? When you look at the Steelers, Bengals, Browns, and Ravens it’s easy to tell just why two teams have been doing it right and why the other two teams have been doing it wrong. Now before...

NFL Draft needs: AFC North

Cleveland Browns Finished: 4-12 Drafting: Fourth Pick Cleveland has had nine top-16 picks since 1999 and two No. 1 picks. The problem is only two players -- tackle Joe Thomas and cornerback Joe Haden -- remain on the team to show for it. The two No. 1 picks -- Tim Couch (1999) and Courtney Brown (2000) -- were busts. The Browns have had nine years of double-digit losses, except...

From the Bengals: The Bengals organization wishes to express its sadness over the loss of former QB Greg Cook, who died last night in Cincinnati at age 65, after an illness.

NFL Week 16 Picks: Winning Out

So in my town of football, there are two camps; those who have checked out on this Eagles team for months and refuse to get sucked into the false dawn of a two-game winning streak to get to 6-8, and those that think if they just somehow get themselves into the dance, that they'd be a hard out... and even imagine some kind of miracle scenario where they get to the NFC championship...
