Around the NFL: Jesse James

Saw a story online yesterday that Ben Roethlisberger and tight end Jesse James have been working on developing a red-zone rapport at OTAs. The Steelers released Ladarius Green, and didn't add anyone of note, so it's James, Xavier Grimble and the league's other David Johnson at the position.   more »

Ian Allan: Home-away passing stats

Someone a few weeks back asked about home-away numbers for quarterbacks. I’ve had a Post-It on my computer screen, and I’ve finally had a chance to get around to it. As I supposed, it’s Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees leading the way.  more »


Around the NFL: Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons blew the Super Bowl, and it's tough for Super Bowl losers to return to the big game -- hasn't happened in more than 20 years, in fact.

There’s some buzz with the three rookie tight ends selected in the first round – O.J. Howard, Evan Engram and David Njoku.

Poll: June 19, 2017

Which Titans player will finish with the best receiving numbers? (6 points for TDs, 1 for every 10 yards)

Corey Davis (0%)
Delanie Walker (0%)
Rishard Matthews (0%)
Eric Decker (0%)
