An unclear No. 2 pick and a number of players whose draft position is anybody’s guess are making the task, never easy, a particular test of mettle.
Peterson, whose last full season was in 2015, has spent his entire 10-year N.F.L. career with the Minnesota Vikings.
His fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, had asked for three notes found in Mr. Hernandez’s cell, where he hanged himself last week.
The Giants quarterback addressed accusations related to a 2014 lawsuit, saying an email to a team equipment manager was taken out of context.
The champion Patriots will begin the season Sept. 7 in a Thursday night game, while the team they beat for the title, the Atlanta Falcons, starts on the road.
Hernandez’s family may be interested in whether he had a degenerative brain disease that can only be diagnosed in autopsies.
Hernandez was once the youngest player in the N.F.L. and a star for its best team. But he remained tangled in his roots.
The goal is to look three years ahead, but with more players worried about serious injuries and leaving the game early, and a short shelf life at some positions, the task is difficult.
The decision to move the Raiders to Las Vegas from Oakland presents conflicts for a league that has long opposed gambling.
The Steelers’ longtime chairman helped shape modern pro football but remained grounded. He stayed in touch with old friends and former players.
Hernandez, the former Patriots player accused of killing Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in a drive-by shooting, is already serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder.
Rooney began his time with the team as a water boy at age 9 and helped build one of the most successful franchises in N.F.L. history.
It’s a good time to be a sports fan in the city. But it wasn’t always that way.
St. Louis and groups in the city say the league violated its own relocation policy when N.F.L. owners voted to let the team leave for Los Angeles.
In recent days, team officials have openly discussed at least considering a trade of Sherman, who has been a Pro Bowler or first-team All-Pro in five of six years.
After losing his starting job with the Cowboys last season, he planned to retire after 13 seasons, although several teams were interested.
The Salt Lake Screaming Eagles, who have made fan participation the cornerstone of their team, let their fans vote on whether to sign Hardy, who has faced off-the-field issues.
The Raiders’ move from Oakland to Las Vegas, which has no real football tradition, feels like the money grab it is.
Las Vegas was willing to offer a $750 million public subsidy to gain the Raiders, even as school class sizes had to be increased for lack of funds.
The team is the third franchise to gain approval to change cities since 2015. But Raider Nation will probably not truly annex Sin City for a couple of years.
