  1. About a 0% chance the en banc hearing is granted. I expect he will re-file his original case but if he has to file in NY and not Texas he will lose. Sometime this season or next he will serve the suspension.
  2. Why do only three people vote on a trade ? The commish gets to vote on his won trades ?
  3. Is that one where the offensive lineman tackled his guy ?
  4. Coates and a 7th round pick in 2019 for a 6th round pick in 2018 according to Rotoworld
  5. Players do not go on waivers before going on IR. Any injured player who will take a significant time to recover can go on IR. Players who do not make the 53 man roster on cut down day have to go through waivers IF they have less than 4 years of accrued NFL seasons. Drafted players and UFAs who do not make the 53 have to clear waivers before they can go a practice squad. Any team claiming one of these players must put them on their 53 man roster.
  6. The story is dated today from Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. Bouchette's work is reliable. PFT is not the author or source,
  7. From Ian Rapoport -- "The NFL informed Ezekiel Elliott that "any additional violations" of the personal conduct policy "may result in your suspension or potential banishment." It's a strong statement from the league after it discovered "substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that Elliott engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions" in July 2016. Elliott has continued to put himself in the wrong places at the wrong times since then and is walking a dangerous path if he doesn't get his act together. Any subsequent violation will likely event in a yearlong or indefinite suspension."
  8. Here you go - From SteelersWire -' " With little option but to add two new players to the active roster, the Steelers opted to place cornerback Senquez Golson and offensive tackle Ryan Harris on the team’s Reserve/Injured List. Taking their spots will be offensive lineman Matt Feiler and cornerback Al-Hajj Shabazz, swapping position for position with two healthy bodies. Both Feiler and Shabazz have spent the year on the Steelers’ practice squad so far and this will be the first time either has been active on gameday for an NFL team. Feiler originally was signed to the practice squad in September 2015 after being released by the Houston Texans. He spent the entire 2014 season on the Texans’ practice squad. Shabazz was added as futures signing in February this year. Previously he was an undrafted free agent signing with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015."
  9. He's taking online courses while remaining in LA. He will not be on the Texas A&M campus.
  10. Eagles reportedly are shopping CB Eric Rowe. He was drafted in the second round last year. The Steelers had him in for a visit before the 2015 draft. http://www.theredzone.org/BlogDescription/tabid/61/EntryId/58357/Eagles-are-shopping-Eric-Rowe--per-source/Default.aspx
  11. The offense will become even more running oriented with Elliot being featured but I think Morris who has had an excellent camp gets a significantly bigger role.
  12. Dallas only offered a 2nd and 3rd to teams in the low teens and early twenties in the draft. Starting with the Bengals at pick 23 the offer was a 2nd and 4th. From MMQB "The plan was to offer Dallas’ second-round and third-round picks, 34 and 67 overall, to teams in the late teens and early twenties—Indianapolis, Buffalo, the Jets, Houston—but then swap out the third-rounder for Dallas’ fourth-rounder, 101 overall, starting in the mid-twenties. Cincinnati (24), Pittsburgh (25), Seattle (26), Green Bay (27) and Kansas City (28) all got called. Lukewarm responses, mostly. Buffalo (19) said no to the offer of the second and third. The Jets said no." http://mmqb.si.com/mmqb/2016/05/01/nfl-draft-dallas-cowboys-war-room-jerry-jones-peter-king
  13. The chance of getting the full 2nd circuit court to hear this case is just about non-existent. From 2000 - 2010 they heard about 28000 cases and only granted an full court hearing in 8 cases or 0.018 %. This is not a case the Supreme Court would ever accept. https://www.federalbarcouncil.org/vg/custom/uploads/pdfs/En_Banc_Report.pdf
  14. Jason Jones who the Cowboys met with earlier in FA. He looks like a good player who would fit in the DL rotation.
  15. Chargers are trying to trade their pick to teams that want Ramsey. The Eagles and Chargers were in trade talks too until they decided to trade up to pick two instead. I doubt any team would trade up for Tunsil since several teams rank the other potential first round OTs (Stanley and Conklin) as better values at the 10 - 15 pick range with Decker available later in the round along with Spriggs who the Ravens have been interested in. I expect there will be two or three more trades in the top ten picks on draft day.
