Adam Vinatieri becomes first player to score 1,000 points with two teams

On Sunday, Adam Vinatieri kicked a game-winning field goal in overtime. His 27-yard chip shot eked out a much-needed victory for the Andrew Luck-less Colts, evening the team’s record at 2-2 and, somehow, keeping them atop the lowly AFC South. That was only his second-best accomplishment of the afternoon. According to reports, Vinatieri became the first player in NFL history to...

Brandon Marshall once ostracized Jets’ CB during practice

In today’s NFL, the best way for a young player to earn playing time on Sunday is to make an impression from Monday to Saturday — ergo, on the practice field. Here’s the tricky part, though: They can’t, at any time, get too big for their britches, not even a little. Such was the case of former Jets cornerback Keon Lyn. Days before the Jets’ season opener, the New York Daily...

Adrian Peterson: ‘I think I’m back’ to old self

On Sunday, Adrian Peterson reminded us that he is still, in fact, Adrian Peterson. In his 100th career start, the Vikings’ All-World running back turned in a(nother) dominant performance — 20 carries for 126 yards and two touchdowns — as Minnesota cruised to a convincing home win over the Chargers. Peterson, whose 2014 campaign was ruined by a child abuse scandal, found the...

Inactive Bears LB rhetorically asks media if they saw him practice

Somehow, despite every indication otherwise, Willie Young survived the Bears’ final cuts this preseason, winning a spot on the 53-man roster. Now, however, the Bears are letting off new indications that the Turk may still be summoned. On Sunday, Young was declared inactive for Chicago’s game against the Seahawks. He was a healthy scratch, as the veteran outside linebacker practiced...

Chargers allowing thrice-concussed tight end to practice

Not one … not two … not three brain injuries are going to keep Ladarius Green from the field. The Chargers tight end participated in practice on Thursday, a day after it was revealed he suffered his second concussion in an 11-day span during Sunday’s loss to the Bengals. Ladarius Green (concussion) is practicing today. Was limited participant Wednesday. Continuing to work...

J.J. Watt says he agrees with teams triple-teaming him

On Sunday, the Buccaneers will attempt what many before them have failed at: Taming the beast known as J.J. Watt. The undesirable assignment falls mostly on the shoulders of right tackle Gosder Cherilus, whose nightmares likely still consist of the Texans’ superstar whipping him on the field. As the Tampa Bay Times notes, Cherilus, formerly of the Lions and Colts, has faced Watt...

Rams’ Aaron Donald: Family ‘better not’ cheer hometown Steelers

Aaron Donald is as big a Pittsburgher as they come. He was born and raised in Pittsburgh, spent his formative years rooting for the Steelers, and eventually dominated college ball at Pitt. He went on to become the Rams’ top draft pick in 2014, proving to be a good selection by winning Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. Now, for the first time in his young career, the star defensive...

Malcolm Jenkins disses Rex Ryan with Jets compliment

The 2-0 Jets, fresh off their impressive upset victory over the Colts, are the current talk of the football world. Ironically, they’re winning without doing any talking, a refreshing change from years past when Rex Ryan was blowing enough hot air to blanket the five boroughs. There’s a correlation there, according to Malcolm Jenkins. The Eagles’ veteran safety, who gets his...

J.J. Watt becomes second-fastest player to 60 sacks

In Week 2 against the Panthers, J.J. Watt continued doing J.J. Watt things. He — you guessed it — notched a sack for the seventh straight game, and third time this season. Ho-hum. Just another day in Watt’s domain. Only this particular takedown of Cam Newton counted for more. And it wasn’t because he mocked Carolina’s quarterback after the fact. It was career sack No. 60...

Mike Evans says Randy Moss can still play in NFL

For the second time in as many weeks, Randy Moss’s name has been brought up in conversation by a young, ascending wide receiver. They repeat: There’s gas left in the 38-year-old tank.

Gregg Williams compares Rams’ Barron to Sean Taylor

The Rams’ defense is loaded with superstar talent, but, like most good units, they have a stable of versatile role players, as well. Among them is Mark Barron. You might recall the name. He was drafted No. 7 overall by the Buccaneers in 2012, a product of Alabama that was supposed to be an impact safety at the next level. He was a playmaker for the Crimson Tide, and when he came...

Blake Bortles slams fans who criticized play-calling

After a dreadful offensive showing in last Sunday’s season-opening home loss to the Panthers, Blake Bortles isn’t too popular among the Jaguars’ fanbase. Apparently, the feeling is mutual. The second-year quarterback on Wednesday fired back at fans who criticized the team’s play-calling, likening them to know-nothing gradeschoolers. Jaguars QB Blake Bortles on fans questioning...

Giants rookie safety: Tony Romo ‘won’t be happy’ if he tests me

On paper, the Cowboys sport one of the NFL’s best passing attacks with gun-slinging quarterback Tony Romo and All-World receiver Dez Bryant. On paper, the Giants own one of the NFL’s worst secondaries, a unit that has been racked by injuries, ineffective play and square-peg-in-round-hole personnel. It’s not exactly an ideal matchup for the G-Men, but you wouldn’t know it...

Winston: Mariota and I like ‘two horses at the race track’

One of the more appealing Opening Day matchups takes place in Tampa Bay, where No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers will square off with the Titans and No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota. Predictably, in the run-up to the game, Winston was asked about the battle of the ballyhooed rookie quarterbacks. Predictably, he was complimentary of Mariota, whom he described as...

Former MLS goalie wins Chargers’ kicking job

In May, the Chargers took a flier on undrafted kicker Josh Lambo, perhaps hoping he would beat out the incumbent (and pricey) veteran, Nick Novak. It worked. Lambo officially won the Bolts’ kicking job on Saturday, when Novak was released as part of the team’s cut-down to the 53-player roster limit. Novak, who spent the last four seasons in San Diego, converted 22-of-26 field...

Matt Flynn released by Jets, drowns sorrows in Bloody Mary (Photo)

The sixth team wasn’t a charm for Matt Flynn. On Saturday, Flynn was released by the Jets as part of the team’s final cuts. All NFL rosters must be pared down to 53 players by 4 p.m., and the well-traveled quarterback was deemed expendable by Gang Green. He confirmed the news of his release on his Twitter account. Thanks for the opportunity #nyjets, but it looks like I am headed...

Jeremy Maclin: ‘I don’t give a damn about your fantasy team’

There are some NFL players — Calvin Johnson, for example — who genuinely care about your all-too-important fantasy football teams. And there are those who simply couldn’t care less.

In a bah-humbug moment, the Chiefs receiver on Sunday took to his Twitter account to call out “sad” fantasy footballers everywhere...

One of the most talented players in the NFL this past decade has been Adrian Peterson.

However, he let everyone down last year when he was indicted on child abuse charges and subsequently suspended for the remainder of the 2014 season after one game...
