Who are the truly special running backs in 2019?

The looming holdout for Chargers running back Melvin Gordon and the potential holdout for Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has dusted off the debate regarding whether the NFL properly values the running back position.

Todd Gurley should be very happy with his Madden rating

We’ve spent plenty of time the past couple of days talking about players being upset with their ratings in the new Madden game, and the motivation they have drawn from it.

Last July, five of seven unsigned players in the top 10 were represented by CAA. This year, four of five unsigned first-round picks are represented by CAA. One reason for this?

Josh Norman took his bull-running to the next level

Running with the bulls in Pamplona is impressive enough. That, however, wasn’t enough for Washington cornerback Josh Norman. Via Deadspin.com, there’s a video of Norman leaping over a bull, instead of just running away from it. “I had to face the bull straight on,” Norman said on his Instagram story after the fact. “It was [more]

Brian Burns knows he has to get bigger

The Panthers fell in love with Brian Burns last season, imagining the impact the Florida State pass-rusher could make on a team that badly needed his kind of burst. But they also know the player they saw then might get pushed around, which is why he’s trying to transform his body before his rookie season. [more]

The Panthers made wide receiver DJ Moore their first-round pick in 2018 and the rookie got off to a slow start in his first NFL season. Moore caught two passes for 54 yards in his first three games, but the production steadily ramped up from there. He ended the year with 55 catches for 788 [more]

Donte Jackson: Panthers asking for more out of me this year

Panthers cornerback Donte Jackson doesn’t have to worry about the game moving too fast for his feet.

Panthers’ Superfan Greg “Catman” Good dies

The Panthers had no bigger fan than Greg “Catman” Good. Good attended every one of the team’s home games from their inaugural season in 1995 to 2017, becoming something of a local celebrity for rallying the Panthers’ faithful.
