Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

A seemingly happy Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has returned to the New York Giants and is accepting the blame for a blowup with coach Ben McAdoo that led to a one-game suspension. The Giants reinstated the 10-year veteran Tuesday after he spoke with McAdoo.

The NFL and its players union on Tuesday said they held “productive” talks about the league’s social justice efforts amid an ongoing debate about national anthem protests, though the talks did not appear to yield any changes to league policy on whether players must stand during the ceremony. "We heard what they had to say and they heard us," Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said. Ross said that the NFL's policy on the national anthem "did not come up."
