That's awesome stuff there Whit! An intriguing idea no doubt, but one that's sure to be met with some disapproval from the players. Take, for example, Andrew Whitworth, the Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle who has a plan in place if he were to end up on a team that played home games in Europe. "I would hope that I was financially able to quit," Whitworth said, according to the team's official website. "That's what I would hope because if I was, my papers would be the first one in."

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will be out for Sunday's key AFC North game against the Cincinnati Bengals, says Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times. Lewis has not practiced all week because of a toe injury, and got a second opinion from a specialist in Florida that confirmed the extent of the injury. Lewis, 36, is likely to miss more than just this week's game against the Bengals.
