Jets Look At QB Depth Chart, Sigh Deeply, Name Geno Smith Starter

The Jets have made a lot of impressive decisions this offseason, and that’s not the setup for a joke.

Report: The NFL Asked The Patriots To Make Themselves Look Guilty

And the Patriots complied! Ballghazi by this point is a stacked farce, where every new outrageous development only serves to obscure why we were supposed to be outraged in the first place.

Robert Kraft: The NFL Hasn't Been Fair To The Patriots

Patriots owner Robert Kraft has clammed up since his team was hit with significant discipline for its alleged ball-deflating ways, with the pushback against the NFL coming from third parties, on social media, and in a 20,000-word rebuttal/manifesto that would’ve made Ted Kaczynski proud. No longer: Kraft has finally… » 5/18/15 1:15pm Monday 1:15pm

La'el Collins Nearly Didn't Make It Out Of The Draft

Former LSU offensive lineman La’el Collins had one of the most bizarre NFL draft sagas in recent memory. A surefire first- or second-round pick, Collins’s status was upended when he was named in connection with the murder of his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Brittney Mills. A paternity test for Collins has since come back… » 5/15/15 2:20pm 5/15/15 2:20pm
