Cris Carter explains OBJ’s poor performance in playoffs

As it turns out, Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter is serving as something more than a mentor for Odell Beckham Jr. Carter also is acting as a mouthpiece, of sorts. In his comments to Gary Myers of the New York Daily News regarding Carter’s new role, Carter provides an explanation for Beckham’s subpar-by-far performance…

Wide receiver Victor Cruz got a new job on Thursday when he signed a deal with the Bears for the 2017 season, but he made headlines before that thanks to a radio interview in New York. Cruz said that his response to a reduction in passes coming his way halfway through the year as “they…

Robert Woods an early standout for the Los Angeles Rams

Leadership will be a huge key to the Los Angeles Rams success

Spike Lee is 0-for-1 as NFL reporter

Spike Lee, Rob Lowe. Rob, Spike. (It’s not quite as poetic as the time David Letterman introduced Oprah and Uma.) Five years after Rob Lowe incorrectly “reported” that Peyton Manning would retire, Spike Lee has “incorrectly” reported that the Seahawks have signed Colin Kaepernick. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Seahawks have not…

Vikings are looking for a kick returner

The Vikings have had great kickoff returners for most of the last decade, with first-round receiver yielding to first-round receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. Now, for the first time since Harvin arrived, it’s unclear who will be returning kickoffs for the Vikings. “We’ve been fortunate to have some very talented returners who have played for us here…

Beware, NFL: Rob Gronkowski reportedly looking good at OTAs

If Rob Gronkowski looks as good as the reports suggest — and we’re not talking music videos or crashing Sean Spicer’s White House media briefing anymore — then the rest of the league might be in serious trouble.

William Gay is still at corner for the Steelers

32-year-old cornerback William Gay could be moved to safety or, possibly, released by the Steelers. As noted by Chris Bradford of the Beaver County Times, neither has happened — yet.

Saturday one-liners

OBJ drops a hint as to his mindset, otherwise remains silent

Let me begin by saying this: Odell Beckham Jr. has every right to not show up for voluntary workouts. The problem at this point isn’t his absence but his failure to provide any explanation for it. Often, players stay away in order to exert leverage, with the goal of getting a new contract. Also, and…
