Vikings would play Super Bowl as visitor in their home stadium

Drew Brees: I’ll be here as long as they’ll have me

Quarterback Drew Brees talked about his future with the Saints after last Sunday’s loss to the Vikings, which was a pretty good sign that Brees wants to sign another contract with the team after playing out the final year of his last deal in 2017.

Bengals fans donate to Blakes Bortles’ foundation for knocking out Steelers

It’s not quite at the point (yet) that it reached two weeks ago when Bills fans donated in droves to Andy Dalton‘s foundation after the Bengals beat the Ravens to deliver a playoff berth to Buffalo, but Bengals fans are now showing their appreciation to Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles for eliminating Cincinnati’s chief rival from [more]

Tomlin not ready to talk about potential coaching-staff changes

Amid increasing chatter than Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley, whose contract is expiring, won’t return, coach Mike Tomlin did nothing to fuel — or extinguish — those flames during a season-ending press conference on Tuesday.

The Titans are looking for a new head coach and their eventual hire will be their third since they took quarterback Marcus Mariota with the second overall pick of the 2015 draft.

Philly fans scooping up dog masks

After the Eagles beat the Falcons in the divisional round, Philly tackle Lane Johnson and defensive end Chris Long donned dog masks, a Captain Obvious reference to their status as underdogs in the postseason.

Big Ben says he’s not allowed to check to a fourth-and-1 quarterback sneak

In Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars, the Steelers twice got stopped on fourth-and-1. On both plays, there appeared to be room in the middle of the line for Ben Roethlisberger to run a quarterback sneak for a yard. So why didn’t he? Roethlisberger says he isn’t allowed to check out of the play that offensive [more]

Other quarterbacks pass when they’re losing, Tom Brady passes to win

When a quarterback throws a lot of passes in a game, it usually means his team is losing. Tom Brady is different.

That’s by far [more]

Yes, tight end Austin Hooper had a solid year for the Falcons in 2017, with 49 catches for 526 yards and three scores.
