RED-HANDED: A mess of weird things have spilled out of the documents from Tom Brady's suspension appeal over DeflateGate. One of the biggest is that the Ravens were potentially the ones who tipped off the Colts about the way the Patriots were treating their footballs. The Ravens have denied doing so, even though the accusation aligns neatly with reports last month that Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and Colts owner Jim Irsay were putting the most pressure on Roger Goodell to uphold Brady's four-game suspension.
DOES IT EVEN MATTER? In the end, that's all one Patriots fan wants to know.
LEGEND: Despite his death, Junior Seau is still inspiring this generation of Polynesians to succeed through football.
HAMSTRUNG: Your favorite player is probably dealing with a hamstring injury right now. (Alternatively: Early training camp reports always reveal that all football players are hurt all the time).
FOSTER CARE: Arian Foster will undergo surgery on Friday, which means the Texans need running back depth with the veteran likely to miss the start of the season. The team almost worked out a deal with Pierre Thomas, but could not agree to terms.
DEANDRE LEVY-RAGE: DeAndre Levy earned a four-year contract extension with the Lions after a second-team All-Pro season for a shockingly good Detroit defense. The terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed, but whatever the numbers they will have been well-earned.
CHUCKSTRONG IS BERRYSTRONG: Colts head coach Chuck Pagano wore an Eric Berry shirt to practice on Tuesday. Berry was cleared to return to the Chiefs after months spent battling lymphoma. Pagano can relate after fighting off leukemia in 2012.
DEADLIEST PICK: There is a worst way to experience a Super Bowl loss, and it's in the middle of the freezing ocean, listening to an acquaintance commentate the game on a decade-old cell phone, screaming "WHY'D THEY THROW IT!?" as the Seahawks toss away the title at the goal-line.
OH I GET IT, HIS NAME IS REX: Rex Ryan will eat a dog biscuit to benefit the SPCA. Good Rex!
