Dion Jordan suspended again, PED's this time.

+

The #3 pick of last year's draft now has his 2nd suspension. It is for 4 games. Colts WR LaVon Brazill has also been suspended, his is for 1 year.

13 new refs this year, no women

+

This is a list of the new refs, who got promoted, who retired, etc.

NFL agrees to remove cap on concussion damages

+

"A young retiree with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease, would receive $5 million, a 50-year-old with Alzheimer's disease would get $1.6 million, and an 80-year-old with early dementia would get $25,000."

Jonathan Cooper still not recovered from broken leg

1

I know he was a huge favorite here last year for the draft. Hopefully he will be all right, but 10 months later he still isn't ready to practice on the leg he broke.

RB Jonathan Franklin retires after only 1 year

+

Many of us liked him in the draft last year. GB took him in the 4th and he only had 19 carries on the year before going on IR with a neck injury. That injury is more serious than was first thought and has caused his retirement.

Gamers for charity.

+

I hadn't heard about this before, so I thought I would post it here for people who might be interested. You make a donation in exchange for a bundle of games.

Crawford & Fred get into a fight.

+

"Near the end of Wednesday’s minicamp practice at Valley Ranch, Dallas Cowboys defensive end Tyrone Crawford took exception to the way center Travis Frederick was trying to block him during two-minute drills. A scuffle ensued and punches were thrown."

Hatcher hurts knee

+

"Coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday that Hatcher has ''a little bit of pain, a little bit of swelling,'' and will have an X-ray and an MRI."

"Barber was arrested just after 8PM on Sunday night -- and he's being held for "mental detention and observation.""

Clowney has sports hernia surgery

1

They had to send him to a specialist in Philly. He said surgery, and did it yesterday.

Lions, Chiefs cut cornerbacks Chris Houston and Brandon Flowers

1

2 starting CB's cut on the same day in June. You don't see that very often. Especially when one of them just went to the Pro-Bowl.

Quessenberry has cancer

2

I know several of us really liked him last year as a developmental OT. He has been diagnosed with Lymphoma and placed on the Texans Non-Football illness list.

Today in 1986, Bo turned pro

+

A short video look at Bo after he left college. In the NFL and MLB.

Are the Cowboys worth over $8B on the open market?

4

Based on the sale price of the Clippers, the author says the Cowboys would sell for over $8B if Jerry were to put them up for auction.

Giants safety Hill suspended 6 games

4

This is his 3rd suspension in his 2 years in the NFL. The Card's Pro Bowl LB was also suspended, for a full year for drugs.

Clippers price tag is $2B

+

The winning bid for the Clippers is $2 Billion. This begs the question, if Jerry held bids for the Boys, would he get $4 Billion? If the Dodgers and Clippers are worth $2B each, the Boys would surely be worth a premium on top of that.

Dolphins scout files notice of intent to sue over firing under the ADA

+

He has been a scout with the Dolphins since '97 and has been working from home since '04 when his wife developed cystic fibrosis. The new GM who was hired a couple of months ago didn't like the arrangement. First they decided to specifically exclude his wife's med's from the health plan and then they decided to just flat out fired him. He is going to sue over violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

+

Now to see if he goes to prison, and for how long.

Ex-players say teams gave pain pills 'like candy'

+

The lawyers are claiming it was illegal for team Dr's to give them pain killers. Considering they are Doctors, that argument should be interesting to hear.

What Cowboys are on PFF's top 101?

2

Remember, these scores add up from game to game. So if a player misses time, his score isn't as high as others who play more snaps. The top guy to show on the end of the year PFF rankings is Tron at #44. Next is Hatcher at #66, Hatcher missed some time, or he would have beat Tron. The 3rd and final team member on the list is DeMarco at #76. He also missed time, thus a lower score.

Aaron Hernandez charged in 2 more shooting deaths

+

"Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez ambushed and gunned down two men after a chance encounter inside a nightclub nearly two years ago, prosecutors said Thursday in an indictment that places the gun in his hands weeks before he signed a five-year, $40 million contract and went on to catch 51 passes and score five touchdowns during the 2012 NFL season."

Jaguars remove locker of suspended WR Blackmon

3

He won't contact the team and they gave his locker to a UDFA. Sounds like he will be cut when/if his suspension is lifted.

Josh Gordon facing season ban for drug test

+

Maybe the Browns will hit WR's tonight.
