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.
Bishop missed the entire 2012 season with a hamstring injury suffered during the preseason opener last year. As a starter the two years prior, he had 218 tac
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.
But for courageously continuing to live h
This season will be Steve Smith’s 13th in the NFL and 13th with Carolina. The only other players on the Panther roster with more than 10 seasons of NFL experience are Jordan Gross and Drayton Florence (11) and Dwan Edwards and Ben Hartsock (10).

When Texans running back Arian Foster was carted off the team’s practice field last month, several fans gasped. The franchise running back told FOXSports.com on Friday that Houston fans need not worry, he’s on the right path to recovery.
“Yeah, it’s going good man,” Foster told FOXSport
It was supposed to be one simple play. A forgettable moment in a lifetime spent together as teammates on football fields from tiny Warren, Ark., to the mighty Southeastern Conference to the National Football League.
It began simple enough near the end of a long intrasquad scrimmage a summer ago.
The Chicago Bears don't even allow Devin Hester to wear the same colored jersey as the other Bears wide receivers in practice. He's a return man, and a return man only.
But is a he return man who's guaranteed to make the roster?
CSNChicago.com's John Mullin wrote Sunday night that Hester is ju
The NFL might not be that far away from having its first full-time female official on the field. And when -- not if -- it happens, look to 2014 as the year and look to Sarah Thomas as the zebra breaking ground.
Thomas, 39, became the first female to ever officiate an NCAA football game in 2007 --
After an off-season full of uncertainty surrounding the Cowboys’ play caller, Jason Garrett finally acknowledged earlier this month that he’d be passing the duties on the Bill Callahan next season.
The move will ostensibly free Garrett up to focus more on the team as a whole while also giving C
As we close in on the one-week anniversary of the unexpected news that the Patriots have signed Tim Tebow, everything to be said about the move has been said.
And then some.
Except one thing: The Jets will pay more for Tebow in 2013 than the Patriots will in 2013 and 2014 combined.
The Manti Te’o story is changing, and that’s a good thing. A very good thing.
The questions about the hoax and its aftermath are diminishing. With mini-camps wrapping up and training camp closer than you think, the narrative is shifting to a better place: the football field.

Did a 2012 injury factor into Willis McGahee's recent release by the Denver Broncos?
Upon reporting to the Broncos' mandatory minicamp last week, the veteran running back insisted he was fully recovered from a torn medical collateral ligament and compression fracture in his leg. Offensive coordin
For years, it was the one guarantee of every Steelers season: They would talk about throwing to the tight end but wouldn't do it.
They finally did so under offensive coordinator Todd Haley a year ago, when Heath Miller caught a team-high 71 passes — only the second time since 1966 a tight end t
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley displayed more confidence this offseason during workouts than most observers have seen since he has entered the NFL.

Patrick Willis said he's in the best shape of his career as the 49ers' Pro Bowl linebacker enters his seventh NFL season.

The subject is too frivolous to turn into World War III, but the war of words is escalating between Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Kraft said last week that in 2005, he visited Russia and left without his Super Bowl ring, as Putin admiringly said, “I can kill
