Michael Bennett apologizes to Cam Newton
  • NFL null

    Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett called Cam Newton to apologize for singling out the Panthers quarterback in a plea for NFL players to take a public stance on social issues, Pro Football Talk first reported.  Appearing Monda夜网论坛y on SportsCenter, Bennett confirmed that he reached out to Newton.

    "I just said that I'm not trying to make a division within the community of NFL players," Bennett said, per ESPN.com. "I'm just trying to bring unity, basically. Sometimes you read things, and it comes out like I'm saying that that's the main person. But I'm just saying that we need to work together to come together with what's going on and figure a way, how can we be better? How can we be better influencers?”

    At training camp Saturday, Bennett — wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt — called on NFL players, particularly star black players, to speak out about the issues impacting their communities.

    “In the Night net, everybody is standing up for it, so the greatest players are in the forefront of the movement,” Bennett said Saturday. “… Our great players are sitting back just taking the dollars, whether it's Cam Newton, all these guys. They're not really on the forefront of trying to change what's going on."

    In a separate piece, Pro Football Talk reports that the Seahawks removed Bennett’s reference to Newton in the official[......]

    Ryan Fitzpatrick vents about benching
  • NFL null null null null

    A frustrated Ryan Fitzpatrick wore his heart on his sleeve after leading the New York Jets from behind to a 24-16 victory 夜网论坛Sunday over the Baltimore Ravens.

    After replacing injured starter Geno Smith in the second quarter, Fitzpatrick made it clear he does not intend to remain as backup going forward, citing a newfound chip on his shoulder. He went on to vent candidly about the benching in favor of Smith a week earlier, and then called out the Jets front office and coaching staff who made the decision.

    STEELE: Why Geno still deserves more chances

    "When the owner stops believing in you and the GM stops believing in you and coaches stop believing in you, sometimes all you have is yourself," Fitzpatrick told reporters at MetLife Stadium. "You try to get over it. It took me a couple days. I told a couple of guys I'm going need a couple days for this one, to let it sink in.

    "Going back to me being human and not being a robot, yeah, there's strong emotion there for me. Especially not knowing if that was the last time I was going to be out t[......]

    Key to Raiders' success is in front of Derek Carr, not in or around QB
  • NFL

    Somewhere along the line, the Raiders went from the team everybody thought could be good to a team everybody is surprised actually got good ... and is beating quality competition.

    The credit in a situation like this usually falls on quarterbacks, head coaches and general managers, but a closer look at the Raiders reveals that, while Derek Carr, Jack Del Rio and Reggie McKenzie certainly deserve some accolades, the offensive line is the biggest reason for Oakland's success in 2016.

    WEEK 9 PICKS: Straight up | Against the spread

    Don’t take praise for the Raiders' unsung heroes as a knock against their quarterback. But while Carr has played well and clearly has taken a step forward from last season, any MVP buzz for him is both misplaced and premature.

    Carr’s 7.19 yards per pass attempt puts him down in Case Keenum and Cody Kessler territory at No. 19 in the NFL, and many of his other bare statistics can be accounted for with the massive amounts of help he has lined up in front of him.

    He is rarely pressured by NFL standards and consistently finds himself manageable third-down situations thanks to a top 10 rushing offense — again, credit to the offensive line.

    Take a look at this touchdown throw on the Raiders’ first drive against Kansas City.

    Bears OL Kyle Long voting for Harambe?
  • NFL null null

    Kyle Long made an interesting political statement Tuesday.

    The Bears' offensive lineman tweeted out a picture of his election ballot with a giant checkmark next to the write-in section under U.S. president. The name filled in? Harambe.

    It's unlikely Long took this photo while voting — that would be highly illegal — but it does indicate he isn't impressed with the presidential candidates.

    Is Daniel Jones another Peyton Manning?
  • NFL null

    Gil Brandt has evaluated countless thousands of NFL Draft prospects through the years.

    So what the respected NFL analyst said this week about Daniel Jones shouldn't be taken as an empty compliment for the former Duke quarterback ahead of the NFL Draft.

    “I. Love. Dan Jones,” Brandt said during a Sirius XM NFL Radio teleconference (via Ryan Dunleavy of NJ Advance Media). “I have to say this carefully: When you watch him and you go back (20) years and watch Peyton Manning, you are watching the same guy.

    "He’s athletic. He doesn’t have a rocket for an arm, but neither did Peyton. Very smart."

    The Manning comparison is apropos, given Jones has spent time working out with Peyton and Eli Manning. And Duke coach David Cutcliffe mentored both Mannings, serving as offensive coordinator during Peyton's time at Tennessee and then head coach during Eli's tenure at Ole Miss.

    Has Cutcliffe's guidance molded Jones into a Manning-like signal-caller?

    NFL Draft 2019: Sweat to skip event over heart concern
  • NFL null

    Montez Sweat won't be making the trip to Nashville this week after all.

    According to ESPN, the former Mississippi State defensive end will no longer be attending the NFL Draft like he originally planned.

    Instead, he has opted to spend time with his family in Georgia.

    "My devoted grandparents and a host of other family members helped me to get to this point in my life and I wanted to celebrate this special day with my family, so we all chose to do so where it all started for me, Stone Mountain, Georgia," Sweat told ESPN through his age夜网论坛nt, Brian Overstreet.

    Sweat impressed at the NFL combine last month, setting a 40-yard dash record for a defensive lineman by running a 4.41 at 6-5 and 260 pounds.

    However, it was revealed he had a pre-existing heart condition before he was cleared to participate in the event. The heart issue reportedly was not known until the combine and has since affected his draft stock, though doctors declared it to be low-risk.

    "Because of privacy issues we are not allowed to comment specifically. But I will tell you that this is not news," his agent said in a statement at the time. "Montez is the same person that was medically cleared to play and dominate the SEC, the Senior Bowl, and the NFL combine. No change in health and no change in domination!"

    Despite his health concerns, Sweat is project by m[......]

    Ex-Packers GM Ted Thompson reveals autonomic disorder
  • NFL null null

    Former Packers general manager Ted Thompson has been suffering from an autonomic disorder, he revealed Wednesday.

    Thompson, 66, said it is the primary reason he stepped down from leading the team’s football operations following the 2017 season. 

    "Late in the 2017 season, (team president) Mark Murphy and I had a conversation about my health and future with the Packers," Thompson said in a statement released by the Packers. "At that time, we mutually agreed that it was in the best interests of myself and the organization to step away from my role as general manager. ...

    “I have been diagnosed with an autonomic disorder. I feel that it’s important to mention that based on the test results and opinions of medical specialists, they feel that I do not fit the profile of someone suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).”

    An autonomic nerve disorder, according to the Mayo Clinic, can cause symptoms including problems with the regulation of heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, perspiration, and bowel and bladder functions, as well as fatigue, lightheadedness, feeling faint or passing out, weakness, and c夜网论坛ognitive impairment.

    Kyle Rudolph says media member lied about selling his gloves for a charity benefit
  • NFL Vikings Saints v Vikings Saints

    Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph made the game-winning catch in overtime to knock the Saints out of the NFL playoffs in the NFC wild-card round last weekend, but the gloves he used to make that reception had quite the journey afterward.

    A fan tweeted at Rudolph on Wednesday, writing, "You probably already heard this, but looks like someone sold your gloves from the Saints playoff game on eBay already. Hope they didn’t deceive you for a quick buck." Rudolph responded by saying the person who received the gloves from him did so by lying about their intentions.

    Rudolph says a media member asked for the gloves and told him they'd be selling them for a charity benefit.

    The Colts reportedly had Tom Brady's interest but 'were set on' Philip Rivers instead
  • NFL Colts Patriots Buccaneers

    No, the Colts did not look at a 38-year-old Philip Rivers in NFL free agency and say to themselves, yeah, we want that guy instead of the greatest quarterback of all time who happens to be a few years older. Indianapolis' passing on Tom Brady, 42, wasn't that simple.

    But as NBC Sports' Peter King reports, the Colts might have had a chance at success had they decided t夜网论坛o pursue Brady once the 20-year veteran hit the open market for the first time in his career.

    King reported Monday that "the Brady camp had interest in Indianapolis" after the QB had decided he would leave New England. Yet "the Colts seemed to be set on Rivers on a shorter deal."

    Those last four words — "on a shorter deal" — are key.

    Indianapolis, which as of now has no quarterback on the books for 2021, clearly wanted a bridge quarterback as the team continues to recover from Andrew Luck's unexpected retirement last summer. As King notes, "it was telling that Rivers wants to play a couple of years more, at least, and the Colts signed him for one year, period."
