Derek Boyko becomes new V.P. of communications in Buffalo

The Bills have had a rough time in recent months from a P.R. perspective. Coincidentally (or not), they have a new P.R. chief. Derek Boyko joins the Bills as Vice President of Communications. The team announced the move on Thursday. Former head of P.R. Scott Berchtold will become a Special Assistant. Boyko spent 17 seasons as…

Tom Brady face plants while skiing, Patriots fans pass out momentarily

Tom Brady isn’t an old man at 39 years old, but in football terms he’s practically a senior citizen. So New England Patriots fans probably didn’t see the humor in Brady posting an Instagram video of what appears to be him skiing, and then wiping out “Wide World of Sports” style after a small jump.

Derek Newton “doing great” after double patellar tendon tear

There are plenty of players around the league rehabbing after season-ending injuries right now, but Texans right tackle Derek Newton may be facing the longest road back to the field.

Rashad Jennings: “No doubt” I’ll make a G.M. right this year

The Giants moved on from running back Rashad Jennings earlier this month in a move that saves them $2.5 million in salary cap space and leaves Jennings in search of a new home for the 2017 season. Jennings’ work last season will create some doubt about how much he has to offer another team. Jennings…

Video shows Joey Porter grabbing wrists of police officer

Steelers linebackers coach Joey Porter avoided felony charges last month when the local prosecutor decided that the evidence didn’t support a conclusion that Porter “attempt[ed] by physical menace to put [a police officer] while in the performance of duty, in fear of imminent serious bodily injury.” With the entire case now resolved via a glorified…

Jason Peters will stay in Philly, not taking a pay cut

Despite a report this month that the Eagles asked left tackle Jason Peters to take a pay cut, he’ll be sticking around on his current contract. The Eagles have decided to bring Peters back without a pay cut, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Peters’ base salary will be $10.45 million and he can also…

College coach says Mitch Trubisky will measure up to NFL scrutiny

You can tell we’re getting close to the NFL Scouting Combine, that magical time of year when football-starved men obsess over fractions of inches. (Write your own punchline, funny guy.) So after NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock suggested that North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky might only measure 6-foot-1-something, UNC coach Larry Fedora said he didn’t…

Colin Kaepernick meets with 49ers, GM John Lynch says evaluation is 'very much fluid'

The San Francisco 49ers need a quarterback. Colin Kaepernick needs a place to play. So it would make sense for the two sides to at least hear each other out. Kaepernick met with new 49ers general manager John Lynch and new coach Kyle Shanahan, according to CSN Bay Area. Show More Summary

Pittsburgh Steelers: Addressing the running back position

The Pittsburgh Steelers arguably had the deepest group of running backs in football last season, but that might not be the case for 2017 if the Steelers don’t get their offseason priorities in order. With their entire backfield headed...Show More Summary

Aaron Rodgers dubs his official Combine 40-yard dash as “fake news”

A more-humorous-than-interesting kerfuffle has emerged on Twitter involving Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and, for a change, not me. The NFL tweeted a photo of Rodgers running a 4.71-second 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine in 2005. Rodgers responded by pointing out that it was a 4.66, followed by the #fakenews hash tag. The number that comes…

Anthony Lynn: Having two former head coaches on staff will help

In-season firings of head coaches don’t happen all that often in the NFL, although you might not know that from looking at the Chargers coaching staff. Head Coach Anthony Lynn got bumped up to interim head coach in Buffalo last year after Rex Ryan was fired while offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt and defensive coordinator Gus…

Jameis Winston realizes his poor choice of words after school speech

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston probably meant no harm. But the words that came out of his mouth during a school appearance Wednesday were the kind he probably should have given more consideration to, and his response made that clear. Via Tom Jones of the Tampa Bay Times, Winston was talking to a group of third-…

A.J. Klein likely to leave Carolina for starting opportunity

Panthers linebacker A.J. Klein has played pretty well when he’s been given a chance. But on a team with three first-round picks at the position, and in a league when playing nickel defense is more prevalent with every passing year, there aren’t but so many chances. So it’s probably not a surprise that Klein is…

AFC West advice: Denver, Kansas City face decisions at quarterback

Broncos should stick with Lynch, Siemian and resist the urge to get Romo.        

Report: Ravens “may balk” at Dennis Pitta’s 2017 salary

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta made it back to the field in 2016 after playing just seven games in the previous three seasons because of hip injuries and showed that the time off didn’t make him a less popular target for quarterback Joe Flacco. Pitta led all tight ends with 86 catches during the 2016 season,…

Danny Shelton had wrist surgery

Browns defensive tackle Danny Shelton was spotted with a cast on his left arm recently, which spurred questions on Twitter about what was bothering him.

Titans honor Tim Shaw for inspiration in fight against ALS

The Titans had a banquet downtown for their season-ticket holders and gave out some awards, but one will be remembered far beyond the usual collection of honors for football players. Former Titans linebacker Tim Shaw, who has remained around the team following his diagnosis with ALS, walked to the stage with center Ben Jones when…

Fernando Bryant fired by high school over social media post
