Patriots release emails to NFL on leaks of false information

Patience hasn’t been a word frequently associated with Robert Griffin III during his NFL career.

When 49ers tight end Vernon Davis stayed out of the team’s offseason workouts in 2014 in hopes of getting a new deal, he said that everything he did was in “the best interest of building my brand.” Davis didn’t get that new deal, didn’t have a good 2014 season and didn’t make any waves this…

Joint NFL-NFLPA request could set stage for settlement

The next day, instead of submitting a…

Trent Richardson lands on non-football injury list

Trent Richardson’s fresh start with the Raiders has hit a snag. The running back has been placed on the non-football injury list to open camp.

(That likelihood became even smaller once Mortensen canceled.) John Dennis of WEEI reports, via…
