Rise 'n Grind: Uh oh, the Jets are the new 'dream team'

Why did you have to call the Jets THAT name, Buster Skrine?

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

DREAM TEAM: Things didn't go very well when Vince Young called the 2011 Eagles the "Dream Team." Now, Jets cornerback Buster Skrine is calling his team THAT name. Uh oh. Here are Skrine's full comments about that whole Dream Team thing.

THE NEXT PACKERS SUPERSTAR: Sure, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are great players, but there's another receiver on the verge of big things in Green Bay.

POSITION SWITCH: Terrelle Pryor is no longer a quarterback, he decided after being cut by the Bengals on Thursday. He's changing positions with the hope of prolonging his NFL career, but will that do the trick?

RUNNIN' SAINTS: Do you get the sense that we'll be hearing less about Drew Brees and the mighty Saints air attack and more about their running game? Yeah, me too.

CLOSE TO HOME: Sanders Commings of the Chiefs lost his cousin in the Charleston church shooting. Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap is from Charleston, and he spoke out on the tragedy yesterday.

TEXAN FOR LIFE: Houston gave cornerback Jonathan Joseph a three-year, $22 million contract extension. Makes sense, right? Here's what Texans fans are thinking about it.

IN WITH THE NEW: Bucs running back Doug Martin ... remember him? Well, he wants a new nickname (apparently he doesn't like his old one, go figure) and a new contract.

INTERMEDIATE: There was one particular area of the passing game where the Cardinals struggled. The real question is why?

COACH OF THE MOMENT: Vikings head honcho Mike Zimmer's star is burning brighter than it ever has. All he has to do now is translate that into wins.

COMPETENT: A judge sided with Saints owner Tom Benson on one of the major legal battles surrounding control of the Saints and the NBA's Pelicans. But there's still a long way to go.

JOKE OF THE DAY: Rams owner Stan Kroenke hasn't spoken with the St. Louis media since 2012, not even with his eyes firmly fixed on moving the team to Los Angeles. But take heart fans, his chief adjunct, Rams VP Kevin Demoff, assures us that Kroenke "cares significantly." AHAHAHAHAHA

BLIND SIDED: Michael Oher thinks that movie about his life has hurt his NFL career. Yeah, that might not be the only issue for Oher.

ALL THE SMILES: Say what you want about Cam Newton, but he does a lot of good things for his young fans ... like this.
