It took a while but the New Orleans Saints have released Garrett Hartley. The veteran kicker was a mere 22-of-30 on the season but a missed 26-yarder and a blocked kick on Sunday was the end of the road.
The Saints will be on the lookout for a kicker to replace him. Hartley will probably have to wait until next season to get a tryout.
“I think we’re looking closely...

The Cowboys had Durant...

There’s a lot of debate about the details of Ruth and Sylvester’s condition but...

Mincey’s play had deteriorated this season and the Jaguars had reportedly grown tired of his questionable work ethic.
The Dallas Cowboys defense is at the bottom of the NFL in nearly every defensive stat and things could get worse. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed on Tuesday that there is concern that Sean Lee could miss the remainder of the season.
Lee missed the debacle that was a Week 15 loss to Green Bay with a sprained ligament in his neck.
Jerry Jones says he's "very...

As if you needed any more proof that Dale Earnhardt Jr. was the most popular driver in NASCAR. Earnahrdt was recently voted as the most popular driver for a 11th year in a row and only a rule preventing back to back cover appearances will keep him off the front of the upcoming NASCAR video game.
All that is nice but Earnhardt is also loved by fans with their money. He claimed the...

The Tennessee Titans have signed free agent quarterback Tyler Wilson to a contract.
A fourth round draft pick in this years draft, Wilson was beaten out for a roster spot in Oakland by Matt McGloin to end the preseason.

The team would not confirm the agreement to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick but it is believed...
