Welcome to the NFL during the last full week in June.  Typically, it’s the slowest time of the year.

But there’s nothing typical about this year.

And so, if you don’t want to miss anything, you need to keep checking out PFT multiple times per day, every day this week.

You also should have been checking us out over the weekend.  If you didn’t, here’s a quick summary of what you missed:

  1. “Colts owner Jim Irsay sees a report of marketing hurdles in Andrew Luck’s deal as a “breaky” of something far smellier than eggs.”


    For a guy who you couldnt go one day without hearing his name and how great he’s gonna be the news has sure been quiet about him. Wonder what that’s about?

  2. I thought that “there is no offseason in the NFL”.

    Well, in honor of the Christopher Walken picture if you can’t get me more news at least get me “more cowbell!!! I need more cowbell!!!”

  3. Forget about the NFL for the next month, people. Read a book, spend time outside, enjoy the long summer evenings. When camp rolls around get excited again. It doesn’t need to be a year round obsession, despite what the league wants.

  4. Michael Vick is the biggest jerk in the NFL? Thats a first. besides his past, vick has been all professional on and off the field since he got reinstated in the league. Dont know where these reporters get there info from

  5. It’s just the calm before the storm. The NFL will be ready to go and better than ever this year.

  6. “[T]he league may have nothing on Anthony Hargrove.”

    RIGHT! Unless you consider the pesky little fact that Hargrove admitted to the NFL that he LIED to the NFL at the behest of his coaches. But hey, why let facts stand in the way of stirring the pot, even if we have to misrepresent the facts along the way! Go Saints! Go Gregg Williams! Go Sean Payton! Go Anthony Hargrove! Go Mike Florio! Woo hoo!
