The Texans filled a need with one of their own. According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans are signing wide receiver Steven Mitchell Jr. from their practice squad.

Josh Lambo named AFC special teams player of week

The Jaguars have had to deal with a number of changes, but they can count on Josh Lambo every week. The kicker was named AFC special teams player of the week, after hitting all four of his field goals in last week’s win over the Bengals. Lambo has hit all 18 field goal attempts this [more]

Jacoby Brissett is the AFC offensive player of the week

Jacoby Brissett wasn’t expected to be the starting quarterback for the Colts this season, but Andrew Luck’s retirement in August changed the team’s plans. It has not been a bad change for the Colts. Brissett has handled the job well all season and never better than in Week Seven against the Texans. Brissett was 26-of-39 [more]

Tre’Davious White named AFC defensive player of the week

The Bills had to work harder than anticipated to beat the Dolphins. Thankfully for them, Tre'Davious White kept them from having to explain themselves for losing to a winless team.

Tom Brady: I don’t know what the future holds

During the pregame show before Monday night’s game between the Patriots and Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN noted that Tom Brady‘s contract is up after the 2019 season and that he’s put his house in Massachusetts up for sale. Schefter went on to say that Brady is “setting it up to move on,” although there’s [more]

Melvin Gordon: I could be a lot better

The Chargers appeared to be on the brink of beating the Titans when they got the ball to the 1-yard-line late in last Sunday’s game, but they never got into the end zone. Running back Melvin Gordon was stuffed on his first try and he fumbled on his second carry, which allowed the Titans to [more]

Brady to the 49ers in 2020 can’t happen, can it?

When trying to identify potential fits for Tom Brady in 2020 if, as some think, he’s destined to leave the Patriots, I left out one team that maybe should have been included. The 49ers. Yes, they have a quarterback. They also have everything else that would give a quarterback like Brady a chance to win [more]

Mike Tomlin calls Dolphins “a very capable group”

The Steelers are 2-4, so they can’t take anything for granted. But coach Mike Tomlin wanted to make sure his players were taking this week seriously, even though they’re playing a team that’s had even less luck (and much less intent). Via Kevin Gorman of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Tomlin referred to the Dolphins as “a very capable [more]

Le’Veon Bell: NFL did Sam Darnold dirty by airing “seeing ghosts”

Jets running back Le'Veon Bell is bashing the NFL for allowing Sam Darnold‘s comments about “seeing ghosts” to make the Monday Night Football broadcast.

Titans re-sign Matt Dickerson, waive Derick Roberson

The Tennessee Titans re-signed defensive tackle Matt Dickerson on Tuesday. Dickerson was released along with defensive lineman Brent Urban last week so the team could add first-round pick Jeffery Simmons and linebacker Derick Roberson to their active roster ahead of Sunday’s win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Now the Titans have reversed course and brought [more]

If Tom Brady leaves the Patriots, where would he go?

Ever since the Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady agreed to a contract extension that isn’t really a contract extension and Brady put his house in Boston up for sale, some have been speculating that Brady won’t be back in New England next year. On Monday night, ESPN’s Adam Schefter did more than speculate that 2019 [more]

The team re-signed linebacker Donald Payne, who has appeared in 21 games for Jacksonville over the previous two seasons. To make room on the roster, the Jaguars placed linebacker D.J. Alexander [more]

Who else will be traded?

The in-season trading activity has been significant in recent days, with still seven days to go until the window closes until 2020. So who else could be traded? Receiver A.J. Green tops the list. It’s possible that he and the team have an understanding that he’ll be kept out of action in order to remain [more]

The #PFTPM Week Seven players of the week

Tuesday is award day for #PFTPM. The Week Seven prizes were handed out earlier today. MDS named Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett, and I opted for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

John Elway: Emmanuel Sanders had issues, and we had issues

Only 11 days ago Broncos General Manager John Elway insisted the team had no players on the trading block. On Tuesday, Denver traded receiver Emmanuel Sanders and a 2020 fifth-round draft choice to the 49ers in exchange for 2020 third- and fourth-round selections. So what changed? “I think eventually with what happened after the Tennessee [more]
