Bother by a hamstring injury during camp, Nate Burleson never really go a chance to show the Cleveland Browns if there was anything left in the tank.
On Saturday morning the team cut the 33-year-old wide receiver.

In preparation for the 4PM Roster deadline – The Detroit Lions have decided to cut ties with running back Mikel Leshoure.
Leshoure never really took off as we anticipated in Detroit, either from lack luster performance, or a string of injuries that prevented him from being on the field.

Rogers caught a 7-yard pass from quarterback Chandler Harnish in the fourth quarter when the Colts were down 28-0. Rather than hand the ball to the official or drop it on the ground, Rogers attempted to be a very poor man’s...

Michael Sam has become the new Tim Tebow.I'm not comparing their play, their social importance or whatever to the sports landscape or even their fanbase. I mean that ESPN just won't leave them alone. During the Tim Tebow Era of ESPN, his name was all over the network. It could be March and they were name dropping him. First Take would spend pretty much every day bringing...
The Washington Redskins will keep undrafted rookie running back Silas Redd on their 53-man roster to start the season.
Redd racked up 157 yards on 34 carries (4.6 avg) this preseason adding a touchdown and three receptions. The addition of Reed to the roster means that Lache Seastrunk and Chris Thompson have failed to make the team.
Another Redskins note of interest is that kicker...
