Rob Gronkowski retired yesterday, leaving behind all kinds of debates and questions. Was he the greatest tight end ever? Who will be the Patriots No. 1 tight end next season? How bad will his movie career be?  more »

Trivia: March 25, 2019

Factoid: Interception-poor Cowboys

The Cowboys have been in the market for a safety. They were apparently chasing after Earl Thomas for the better part of a year, though nothing happened with that one. They had Eric Berry in for a visit. And yesterday they signed former Viking George Iloka.   more »

Around the NFL: Texans offensive line

The Houston Texans signed Matt Kalil yesterday. It's a big name at the tackle position, but not a successful one. Kalil struggled for Carolina in 2017 and then missed all of last year with a knee injury of some sort. But the Texans have little choice but to throw things at the wall and hope something sticks.   more »

The Colts signed Justin Houston yesterday, and it looks like a sharp move by the franchise. Kansas City didn't want to pay the pass rusher what he was due to make in 2019, but he's still one of the league's better players at getting after the quarterback.   more »

Around the NFL: Jared Cook

Multiple reports, including from Cook himself, have Jared Cook close to signing with the Saints. If and when he does, the Saints will have by far their best pass-catching tight end since Jimmy Graham roamed the Superdome.
