Rodgers made the remarks to the "The Jim Rome Show."
"It's been too long. I think our country and
Three spring practices were more than enough to make a believer out of Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey.
Pouncey is such a believer that he wouldn't mind if the Steelers threw out their old blocking schemes — power and inside zone — for what new offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. has bee
His next fact could read: Chuck Norris is so influential he got Tim Tebow a job in the NFL.
That’s exactly what the tough guy/actor is hoping. In an article he wrote for conservative Web site Newsbusters, Norris lauded the play of the beleaguered quarterback and pushed for the Jaguars to sign h
Ramses Barden sure sounded as if he was making sense when he declared in late February leaving the Giants was a smart move. After all, in four years, he never produced much and never convinced the coaching staff that, despite his towering size at receiver, he could be a vital part of the offense.
There seems to be a budding debate about whether the Bears can build a bridge to repair relations and retire the jersey number of a certain disgruntled former employee.
It will happen this season.
Dat's right. For Michael Keller Ditka Jr., the man also known as Da Coach and perhaps more associ
Prosecutors will ask a judge on Friday to revoke bail for Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent and send him to jail to await trial in the death of a teammate, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County district attorney’s office said Thursday.

Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher ended his illustrious NFL career Wednesday when he announced his retirement. Now it’s time for the next chapter in his life.

Everyone has been wondering why the Browns seem to be collecting running backs. Maybe the reason why is because Trent Richardson is hurt again.
Richardson did not participate in the Browns’ OTA practice open to the media on Thursday because of a “pulled lower leg muscle in his shin,” accord
Heath Miller does not know the answer to your question. It is the same question he has been asked scores of times since the 15th game last season, the same one a gaggle of media asked him Tuesday.
When will he be ready to play football?
"It's too far away to speculate," said Miller, standing o

Jerry Jones: He's in a position to where he can be involved in decision making and should be. He's gotta make them out there on that field. So, he should be, with his experience, be involved in the formation and the formulation of what we're going to be doing gameplanning.
How do you expect that
It seems like a moot point now with Marc Trestman now in charge of the Bears and Lovie Smith gone. But Brian Urlacher said he believes he'd still be playing if Smith was the Bears' head coach. Urlacher announced his retirement Wednesday.
"I do believe that, yes," Urlacher said during an interview

Rokevious Watkins, considered the favorite to start at left guard for the Rams, has been suspended for the first game of the season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

The Ravens' hard luck at inside linebacker hasn't stopped.

As if the New York Giants and Victor Cruz weren't involved in enough of a stare down, fellow wide receiver Hakeem Nicks sent the team a little message by not showing up for practice Wednesday.
Pay day is coming soon for Nicks, too.
That was the unstated goal of Nicks' not attending the Giants' org

Cutting two games off the preseason -- either by expanding the playoffs or moving to an 18-game schedule -- is still being discussed, commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday at the NFL's spring owners meetings in Boston.

The once-distant relationship between Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers has seen significant progress over the last three months.
In February, Favre and his predecessor, Aaron Rodgers, handed out the NFL comeback player of the year award together during the NFL honors ceremony.
Nobody expected Victor Cruz to show up for the Giants' OTA workout on Wednesday. That Hakeem Nicks also didn't show up, however, was a much larger surprise.
Nicks, who was in Manhattan just a night earlier, was nowhere to be found at the Giants facility on Wednesday, a concerning absence. Cruz i
