Terry Bradshaw made national news last week during an interview on 93.7 The Fan when he hit Tom Brady harder than any linebacker. He said Brady wasn't the greatest quarterback of all time and rattled off four quarterbacks who were just as good, if not better, including Dan Fouts. He even ridiculed Brady by saying he is "a little bit tired of all this soap opera stuff that's going on between ...

Like everything else affected by the coronavirus crisis, the 2020 NFL Draft is adapting amid challenging times. The league announced on Monday that its highly popular offseason event will be a virtual affair showcased on ESPN, ABC and the NFL Network. Also, it will serve as a benefit for six charities battling the spread of COVID-19. Organizers are hoping the draft will prove attractive to ...

CHICAGO - We know what you're thinking. This year's NFL draft has the potential to be a bit of a circus. A quagmire. A full-blown cluster-kerfuffle. Two weeks from Thursday, with its standard "show must go on" determination, the NFL will push ahead with its 2020 player-selection process but in a truly unorthodox manner. All the pomp and circumstance had to be scrapped weeks ago, visions of a ...

If he only followed the numbers, Nick Foles would not be a Bear. The former Super Bowl MVP trusted his instinct, however, and that's what led to his arrival last week after the trade with the Jaguars became official. The numbers Foles agreed to in a "crazy" restructuring of his contract might not be ideal, but the new deal gives the 31-year-old upside and freedom if he leads the Bears to ...

Tampa Bay area native and former NFL kicker Jay Feely found a way to help on not one, but two fronts in the battle against the coronavirus. Along with his son, Jace, Feely - who was born in Odessa and starred at Jesuit High School - is purchasing meals from Phoenix-area restaurants and delivering them to healthcare workers and first responders, according to the Arizona Republic. "We were ...

The New York Jets need an edge rusher. Badly. And Jets general manager Joe Douglas on Wednesday said that the team has been in contact with Clowney's representatives. "We're going to do our due diligence on everybody that's out there, especially at the edge rusher position," Douglas said in a conference call with reporters. "I'm not going to get into the details of the conversations we've ...

Last year, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson drew attention for his offseason work with teammates Willie Snead IV and Chris Moore. On Wednesday, his company was a little more famous. In an afternoon session in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - county seat of his native Broward County - the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player worked out alongside Ravens wide receiver and close friend Marquise "Hollywood" ...

DALLAS - Aldon Smith's comeback story will run through Dallas. The former prolific pass rusher whose off-the-field issues sidelined him the past four seasons agreed Wednesday to a one-year contract with the Cowboys, a source said. The deal is worth up to $4 million between a $2 million base salary and $2 million in sack incentives. It includes no guaranteed money, representing a high-reward ...

PHILADELPHIA - Temple center Matt Hennessy expected to meet with a number of NFL teams in preparation for next month's entry draft. What Hennessy didn't foresee was that those visits would take place in his mother's living room in Bardonia, N.Y., with Hennessy staring into his laptop's camera. The league has shut down all team facilities because of the coronavirus pandemic, and has forbidden ...

The New York Jets just let one of their most dangerous weapons walk away. Wide receiver Robby Anderson, the team's only deep threat and one of their few experienced wideouts, has agreed to join the Carolina Panthers. It's a two-year, $20 million deal according to ESPN, which first reported the agreement. The Jets are now in a precarious situation as they move forward in general manager Joe ...

The Jaguars have not had a big-play threat at tight end in 10 years when Marcedes Lewis made the Pro Bowl. They expect to get more consistency this upcoming season, though. The Jaguars took a big step toward making it possible Tuesday night when they reached an agreement to sign former Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert to a two-year contract, according to the NFL's Network. Eifert has ...

The Jets replaced Robby Anderson with a reclamation project, agreeing to a one-year, $6 million deal with former first-rounder Breshad Perriman Tuesday hours after Anderson bolted for Carolina. The 6-2, 215-pound Perriman was a bust for 3.5 seasons before coming alive in the final five games for the Buccaneers last year. He lasted just two years with the Ravens, who spent the No. 26 overall ...

In this weird coronavirus reality, the sport at center stage is the one that's not in season. The NFL provided a distraction last week by staying the course with free agency. Although initially the decision seemed tone deaf, it actually gave millions of fans something to fixate on and discuss that didn't have life-or-death gravitas. But the league's insistence to stick with the April 23-25 ...

Travis Frederick is one of the best players at his position. The Cowboys center was selected to his fifth Pro Bowl in 2019, returning from the effects of Guillain-Barre Syndrome. He knew it would take nearly two years to fully recover from the autoimmune disorder and play at an elite level. He was just grateful to play center for the Cowboys in 2019. His offensive line coach, Marc Colombo gave ...

To those in Tampa Bay who still find it hard to believe that Tom Brady - THE Tom Brady - is a Buccaneer, maybe this will make it feel a little more real. As subscribers pick up their Sunday papers, they'll find a full-page letter on page 3A that was purchased by the New England Patriots' owners, the Kraft family, addressed to Brady. "THANK YOU TOM," the top reads, followed by three paragraphs ...

DETROIT - Darius Slay's relationship with Matt Patricia was fractured and unsalvageable, and the former Detroit Lions cornerback said that ultimately is what set the stage for his trade Thursday to the Philadelphia Eagles. Slay, a three-time Pro Bowler, told the Free Press on Thursday that his lack of respect for Patricia stems from an incident that happened in training camp during Patricia's ...

ORLANDO, Fla. - As excited as we all are about Tom Brady coming to Tampa Bay, isn't there a part of you that doesn't want to see the inevitably ugly ending? Do you think Brady knows what he's getting into? Do you think he and his agent actually did their proper historical research? Did the GOAT - Greatest Of All-Time - fail to comprehend that he is coming to a state otherwise known as "That ...

As day four of the NFL free-agency negotiating/signing period opened Thursday, the Seahawks' biggest question - the fate of defensive end Jadeveon Clowney - became one that may not be answered for far longer than anticipated. While almost all of the top free agents were already spoken for - either re-signing with their own team or agreements with new ones - there was little buzz about Clowney ...
