Browns QB Brock Osweiler: ‘Nobody Plays This Game To Be A Backup’

It probably wasn’t the sort of confidence-booster that he may have been looking for when former Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler learned that he was being traded—along with a second-round pick—to the Cleveland Browns early this offseason in what was essentially a very rare ‘salary dump’ trade in the NFL.

Watch: Brian Allen’s Ridiculous One-Handed Interception

You might have heard about Brian Allen’s one-handed interception referenced during rookie minicamp. But seeing is believing.

JuJu Smith-Schuster Learning From Watching The Veteran Receivers

It’s one thing for a young player to excel during rookie minicamp, and it’s entirely another for him to do so during OTAs. Frankly, that is a lesson that Pittsburgh Steelers rookie second-round wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is learning as he finds that he was being graded on a curve…

James Harrison Still Among The Best Pass-Rushers In The Game

About a decade and a half or so into his career, and after about a decade of starting, I think it probably goes without saying that Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison is a rare specimen indeed. Alex Kozora recently pointed out just how consistently he has been graded by…


Devil’s Advocate: L.T. Walton Cracks The Rotation

You may recall for the past several offseasons that I ran an article series called The Optimist’s/Pessimist’s Take.
