    Just watched the final 5 mins of the Titans/Chiefs playoff game on NFL Network. I understand why the Chiefs traded him. At some point you just get tired of the stupidity, even a supremely talented guy with a year left on his rookie contract.

    "National Felon League" ... :D

    Lawsuit accuses Jaguars' Dareus of assault, transmitting STD

    Jaguars DT Marcell Dareus has been sued for assaulting a women in early April. The allegations are serious but Dareus isn't yet facing any criminal charges. Dareus will be subject to the league's Personal Conduct Policy and faces a possible suspension.

    Former Seahawks CB Brandon Browner was arrested for kidnapping, burglary, false imprisonment, and violation of a restraining order on Sunday. Browner allegedly broke into a home and refused to let the woman inside, who has a restraining order against him, leave Sunday morning in La Verne, California. He also allegedly physically harmed and threatened to kill the woman. Browner was arrested for cocaine possession last May and for making criminal threats last September. He has been out of the league since the Seahawks released him in August of 2016.

    Former Seahawks CB Brandon Browner is facing six charges stemming from a July 8 arrest in La Verne, California including attempted murder. Browner will be arraigned on Tuesday. He's facing four felonies and two misdemeanors, including attempted murder, robbery, burglary, false imprisonment and two counts of child endangerment. Police allege that Browner broke into his ex-girlfriend's home (she had a restraining order against him) and forced her back inside the residence when she tried to escape. He's also been accused of stealing her Rolex. First-degree attempted murder carries a maximum sentence of life in prison in California.




    Free agent CB Adam Jones was involved in a fight at the Atlanta airport Tuesday evening. An airport employee "made a gesture toward Jones" and the two were then throwing punches at each other before Jones landed the knockout blow. The employee was later arrested for instigating the fight. Jones is facing no discipline. The 34-year-old corner remains a free agent and has drawn no known interest.

    Cowboys CB Marquez White was arrested on June 15 for second-degree felony assault with a deadly weapon in Collin County, Texas. White said the incident stems from a "road-rage" dust-up that occurred last October. White was allegedly heading home and exiting a tollway when another man tried to speed by him on the service road. White felt his "life was threatened," then pulled a gun he legally owned. White was not arrested until June. A sixth-round pick in last year's draft, White spent 2017 on the Cowboys' practice squad and re-signed a reserve/future deal in January.

    Cardinals GM Steve Keim was arrested for DUI on Wednesday in Chandler, Arizona. The arrest was made at a DUI Checkpoint on July 4. Keim was released later that night. The Cardinals are aware of the situation and have reported it to the NFL. Signed to a four-year extension this offseason, Keim's standing with the Cardinals is likely safe but he's subject to the league's substance abuse policy and should face some form of discipline. The Broncos suspended executives Tom Heckert and Matt Russell for alcohol-related arrests in 2013.

    If i was in a situation like Thomas I would just go to training camp and just fake an injury like Kwhai so i get paid for the season and then become a free agent next year. If the team decides to offer a contract, my injury would magically heal. Why do more players not do this?

    This shows you how far I am behind the player movement in the NFL ... Richard Sherman is on the 49ers, now.

    Because faking a season ending injury is not easy nor good for contract negotiations.

    Can someone explain this to me:

    NFL rules will now treat head-first dives like feet-first slides
    Posted by Michael David Smith on August 4, 2018, 8:50 AM EDT

    For many years, NFL rules have allowed ball carriers, usually quarterbacks, to protect themselves by sliding feet-first. But this year that rule is changing — a significant change that has received little attention.

    In 2018, the NFL is considering a player to have given himself up if he dives head first, the same way a player has given himself up when he slides feet first. That means a player can’t be hit after he goes into a head-first dive, and it also means the ball will be spotted at the point where the player began to dive, rather than at the point where the player finished moving forward.

    “A quarterback does not have to slide feet first to be considered to be giving himself up,” the league’s online rules say. “Regardless whether the slide is feet first or head first, as long as he gives himself up, he should receive the protections afforded to him as a player in a defenseless posture.”

    It’s easy to see how big a change that will be: In the past, if a quarterback ran the ball on third-and-5, he’d usually slide feet first once he picked up the five yards, but he’d dive head-first and try to pick up the last yard if he was met by an opposing defender after gaining four yards. Now, there’s no distinction between feet first and head first.

    Officials say that’s a major change.

    It’s a big change this year,” line judge Rusty Baynes told ESPN. “Because if you were a runner or a quarterback and you dove head first you could, if you were untouched, get all of that slide. If you went head first. Now, you cannot. It’ll be interesting to see what happens at the goal line.”

    Interesting indeed: Imagine it’s fourth-and-goal in the final seconds of the game, a quarterback whose team trails by five points drops back to pass, then sees an opening in the middle of the field, runs toward the end zone, and just as a linebacker approaches at the 1-yard line the quarterback dives head-first into the end zone. That won’t be a game-winning touchdown anymore. It will be the quarterback giving himself up at the 1-yard line. The first time that happens, there’s going to be outrage from players, coaches and fans of the losing team.

    This change hasn’t received much attention because it’s technically a “point of emphasis” and not a “rule change.” But whatever you call it, it’s a major difference in the way the game of football is played. And a whole lot of people won’t be happy about it.
