Rob Gronkowski completed his latest trip through the operating room yesterday, as the Patriots tight end underwent back surgery.

According to Uni-Watch.com, Revis, whom the Jets traded to the Buccaneers in April, paid $50,000 to safety Mark Barron for his No. 24, so he could wear the number he has
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin has had injury problems throughout the past couple of years in the league. The past few years, it was a hamstring injury that slowed down the receiver and now the team is doing what they can to make sure he will be ready for the end of the season.
New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was questioned by police investigating a possible homicide in this town 40 miles south of Boston. A source with knowledge of the investigation said Massachusetts State police spoke to Hernandez on Monday and were interested in possibly searching his hom
The Falcons surely hope to avoid being called “dumb” by Matt Ryan’s agents next year. Of course, if being dumb means winning the Super Bowl, the Falcons would gladly wear the dunce cap.
For now, the posture between Ryan and the team that made him the third overall pick in the 2008 draft is
David Beckham made a huge splash in 2007 when it was announced he would join the Major League Soccer's LA Galaxy. But what if Beckham, retired for now from futbol, were to give football a shot?
Apparently, one team has made him an offer to do exactly that, according to the UK newspaper the Mirror

The franchise tag wasn't nearly as fashionable for NFL teams this offseason as it usually is, but nevertheless, for a quarter of the league, a notable deadline is nearing. We are now a month away from the cutoff for the eight teams with franchise players to sign them to a long-term extension or risk
Victor Cruz has no choice between now and training camp but to sign the multi-year offer the Giants weeks ago put on the table, because playing for less than $3 million for this season makes absolutely no sense.
So says a prominent NFL player agent who has done many lucrative deals throughout the
1. DE John Abraham — Yes, he's 35. Now that that's out of the way, let's acknowledge that his production and availability warrant employment given how hard it is to find proven pass rusher at this stage of the year. Abraham has averaged nearly 11 sacks over the past three seasons and has more (122
Darrelle Revis is gone, but the Jets still may have the best cornerback in football — if you ask Antonio Cromartie.
The Jets’ new No. 1 cornerback believes if he can stay consistent he could be the best in the game, even better than you know who in Tampa Bay.

The Green Bay Packers have made the decision to move on without inside linebacker Desmond Bishop.
Bishop, 28, spoke with Packers general manager Ted Thompson on Monday, who told him of the organization's intention to release him from the four-year, $19-million extension he signed in January 2011.
On Monday morning, Sports Illustrated published a marvelous and touching version of "Monday Morning Quarterback" written (with his eyes) by former Saints player Steve Gleason. So naturally a trio of Mayhem in the AM hosts for 790 the Zone in Atlanta took to the air and apparently performed a skit mo
The Green Bay Packers have informed inside linebacker Desmond Bishop that they will release him, a source told the Journal Sentinel Monday.

As a player, Steve Gleason is best remembered for blocking a punt in the Saints’ return to New Orleans a year after Hurricane Katrina, a blocked punt that spurred his team to a victory over the Falcons. He’ll always be beloved in New Orleans for that.
