Jerry Jones is a finalist for the NFL Hall of Fame. No owner has influenced the game quite the way that Jones has, for good and bad.
EXPLAINING THE BIG TRADE: Howie Roseman explains why Eagles traded for Dorial Green-Beckham. Opportunity. The Eagles needed help at the position. DGB is incredibly talented, he just needed to get out of Mike Mularkey's dog house in Tennessee. Now, he needs to get serious about his career. PFF graded the deal a C+ for the Eagles and a C for the Titans. To me, it's a good one for Philly, because it's nothing but upside. As for the Titans, this seems like more of a statement about Mularkey's ability to coach a team (remember when he punished players for celebrating?).

OLYMPIC MOMENT: Robert Quinn is in Rio to watch his sister run the hurdles in the Olympics. Pretty cool moment for the Rams defensive end.
