There’s a popular belief that rookie contracts under the 2011 CBA should take only five minutes. In one specific round, those talks are slightly more complicated. As explained by Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the third round has become what one agent calls the “wild, wild West.” For reasons not entirely known, the current…

Calvin Pryor thinks third year will be his best yet

Safety Calvin Pryor’s first two seasons with the Jets unfolded very differently. The 2014 first-round pick struggled as a rookie while playing in a coverage role, but fared much better in 2015 after other changes to the Jets secondary allowed him to play closer to the line of scrimmage. Pryor had 69 tackles, two interceptions…

It’s your weekly PFT Live podcast reminder

More than five years ago, it started as a 30-minute Internet-only vehicle for hot takes and Chris Farley-style interviews. Now, PFT Live somehow has morphed into a three-hour national radio show, with two hours per day that will be simulcast on NBCSN starting later this year. I’m not sure when or how or why it…

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross joked last week about the $450 million of his own money he spent renovating his stadium, saying “I wish it was $450 million.” But now that South Florida has secured another Super Bowl, the money is going to start flowing back into Ross’s pockets.

The Saints have been remaking their offensive line over the last couple of years and one of the new arrivals came with the 13th pick of the 2015 draft when they selected Andrus Peat. Peat didn’t move straight into the starting lineup as a rookie, but saw time at both guard and tackle over the…

Andrew Whitworth open to move to guard in future

There were some moments of discord between the Bengals and tackle Andrew Whitworth last offseason, particularly when he suggested the Bengals not draft a tackle in an early round and then watched as the team drafted tackles in both the first and second round.

Monday morning one-liners

Defensive backs aren’t the only players listening to Ed Reed during Bills practices. Video games are bringing the Dolphins linebackers together.

Ron Rivera going back to fundamentals to escape Super Bowl hangover

Even when Ron Rivera gets misinterpreted, he’s using it as a teaching moment for his team. And the lesson is the Panthers have to begin their work over again, rather than thinking they’re starting halfway down the path after losing Super Bowl 50. Rivera told Jenny Vrentas of TheMMQB.com that planning how to avoid the…

Broncos’ quarterback competition described as wide open

Most people think Mark Sanchez has more or less won the Broncos’ quarterback competition before the competition even started, as neither of the other two quarterbacks on the roster — rookie Paxton Lynch and second-year player Trevor Siemian — is viewed as ready to play this season.
