We might refer to these days as the ‘Owners’ Meetings’ but this event is formally called the NFL Annual Meeting. And for good reason. Coaches, GMs, team presidents and executives are also present as the league goes through its state of the union and planning binges. I’m no John McClain

Breakfast: J.J. Watt to wear new patch on uniform

J.J. Watt is one of six. Maybe five, depending on whether or not Larry Fitzgerald retires or plays in 2018. On Saturday night in Minneapolis, the Texans defensive end was named the Walter Payton Man of the Year for 2017. In addition to getting $250,000…

11 observations from Senior Bowl Day 1

Day 1 of the Senior Bowl is a hectic, crazy and wild day, but the best part of it all is when the players get out on the Ladd-Peebles Stadium turf and compete.
