Dustin Pedroia, Anthony Mackie, Bill Burr, and improvisational quarter keg Rob Gronkowski showed up at a roast for David Ortiz yesterday. Gronk’s material was clearly prewritten; Pedroia’s was supposedly not. One was clearly funnier than the other.
Former 49ers coach Jim Tomsula is now handling the Skins’ defensive line, and not only is he free of the crushing burden of working for Jed York, but he’s also lost some facial hair and fat.
On Sept. 9, 2007, Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett put his head down as he tackled Denver Broncos returner Domenik Hixon. Everett suffered severe injuries to his neck and spine and was paralyzed; doctors weren’t sure the then-25-year-old would walk again. Eventually, the NFL player recovered and returned to Ralph…
Twin brothers and failed NFL coaches Rex and Rob Ryan were in Nashville for the Stanley Cup Final, and they had more fight in them than P.K. Subban and Evgeni Malkin.
Maybe Brock Osweiler will be a better quarterback for the Browns. It’s possible that the Texans’ offensive scheme didn’t make the most of his abilities, which led him to throw 15 touchdowns against 16 picks and complete 59 percent of his 510 pass attempts. (This is admittedly an incredibly generous reading.)
Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio seems to be a man willing to a hear out a broad variety of opinions on a topic. Maybe that’s a common attribute for football coaches, an occupation that demands approaching a problem with multiple possible solutions and can reward unconventional thinking. That also might be why…
Raiders first-round draft pick Gareon Conley had previously said that the rape accusation against him was “completely false,” and referred to the witnesses’ accounts in the Cleveland police report for the real story. Now, there are multiple stories.
Steelers linebacker James Harrison loves to work out and share videos of his workouts. Sometimes he’ll boast about his feats, but other times, the clips are presented without commentary or platitudes. They reinforce a blunt fact: James Harrison can attempt this, and you (almost certainly) cannot.
The Patriots drafted only four players this weekend—although a few of their original draft picks did result in talent via trades—but like every other team, they sifted through the pool of leftover undrafted free agents. These signings might not make the 53-man roster, but they certainly have the look of Patriots.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz, hanging around Philadelphia for the NFL draft today, was being escorted on the Ben Franklin Parkway when he drew the attention of Philly fans. As the cart and security kept moving, a trail of adults and kids followed behind to take photos, chant, and yell.
NFL Draft prospect and former Oklahoma Sooners running back Joe Mixon has settled a civil suit with Amelia Molitor, the woman he punched in the face in July 2014 at a sandwich shop in Norman, Okla., according to a joint statement released today—six days before the draft. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
On Wednesday the New York Times sports desk tweeted out two group photos of the New England Patriots at the White House, one from their post-championship visit with then-President Barack Obama in 2015, the other from yesterday’s visit with President Donald Trump. Lots of people, including us, jumped on the apparent…
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Tom Brady was taking the day off.
Sound the Twitter drama foghorn, because you’re about to read about something incredibly stupid and meaningless.
A civil action filed against the New York Giants, CEO John Mara, and quarterback Eli Manning contains emails that plaintiff/collector Eric Inselberg claims prove Manning knowingly passed off memorabilia as game-used with the help of equipment manager Joe Skiba.
Running back Montee Ball’s last brush with the NFL was a practice-squad spot on the Patriots during the 2015 season, and the team cut him in February of 2016 after he was arrested and charged with battery in Wisconsin. The 26-year-old spoke with Alex Marvez of the Sporting News and said alcohol is what ended his…
College coaches pull this card all the time, and it’s never surprising. There’s an argument for giving football players, particularly quarterbacks, a paid developmental league or some stage in between college and the NFL, but Brian Kelly, who led Notre Dame to an absolutely abysmal 4-8 season in 2016, is not in a…
A few of the Patriots showed up with their Lombardi Trophy for Red Sox opening day, and overactive galoot Rob Gronkowski had fun with quarterback Tom Brady by nabbing his recently recovered Super Bowl jersey.
Jay Cutler’s unemployed and on vacation, which means that instead of worrying about preparing for the Jets, the quarterback gets to enjoy the weather and pose nude for wife Kristin Cavallari’s Instagram. A photo of Cutler’s butt lies within this post; consider yourself warned.
