Even though Robert Kraft doesn’t, Jerry Jones backs Roger Goodell

Patriots owner Robert Kraft changed his tune this week, going from a conciliatory shrug to defiance, saying: “I was wrong to put my faith in the league.” But another owner who has had his share of punishment from the NFL said he thinks commissioner Roger Goodell is still doing a good job. “He’s got obviously…

Don Yee says shift to “destroyed” cell phone was expected

On the same day that the NFLPA fired back at the NFL in court, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s agent went on the offensive, too.

#DeflateGate brings out the venom from readers

In the six months since #DeflateGate first emerged, PFT has received countless emails from fans pushing various ideas and agendas and opinions and theories.

Her lengthy and consistent and hostile emails…

NFLPA will push for quick ruling or injunction

The 54-page document filed Wednesday by the NFLPA in a Minnesota federal court does not include a request for an injunction allowing Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to continue playing while the litigation proceeds.

The lawsuit filed by the NFL on Tuesday against the NFLPA received a judge appointed by President Bill Clinton, a Democrat.

Dolphins donning throwbacks in December

The 2015 Miami Dolphins may not be able to rediscover the glory of years past, but they’ll at least look like the teams that competed for (and won) championships. The Dolphins will dust off their now-defunct uniforms for a Monday night visit from the Giants on December 14. It’s wise for the Dolphins to break out…

Nothing happening between the Giants and Eli Manning, yet

Recent comments from Giants co-owner John Mara suggested that an effort will be made to get quarterback Eli Manning signed soon. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, no such efforts have commenced. It means that the outside chance of Manning getting a new deal by the start of camp is really no chance. This…

Packers won’t put Aaron Rodgers on a training camp pitch count

Aaron Rodgers has dealt with some injuries, and he is the MVP.

Clock is ticking for Seahawks and Russell Wilson

At some point between now and Thursday night, the Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson will work out a new contract.

Forgotten (or perhaps never noticed) in the hours since the Tom Brady ruling appeared is the notion…

Report: Jason Pierre-Paul to continue rehabbing on his own

On Tuesday, Giants co-owner John Mara criticized defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul for not letting Giants officials visit him in the hospital after his July 4 fireworks injuries and said that he doesn’t think Pierre-Paul is “receiving very good advice right now” regarding his lack of communication with the team. It doesn’t look like Pierre-Paul will…

Falcons sign DeMarcus Love

The Falcons had Jake Long in for a visit this week, but he went on to meet with other teams and the Falcons have signed another free agent offensive tackle on Wednesday.
