Friday, May 19th, 2017

With the month of May almost complete, fantasy football drafts for franchise leagues will be arriving soon. For those of us out there who enjoy the yearly game against friends and others from around the world, this is a very happy time.

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Starting the week with one of the weakest and most inconsistent backfields in all of the NFL, the Philadelphia Eagles will end the week with a top five NFL backfield.

Two-time Super Bowl champion LeGarrette Blount, whose rushing helped the New England Patriots win last season's NFL crown, agreed to a one-year deal Wednesday with the Philadelphia Eagles.

There was a time when LeGarrette Blount was willing to tell anyone who would listen that he hoped to spend the remainder of his career in New England. After putting together an 18-touchdown season in 2016, though, the best offer out there for the free-agent running back was somewhere else.  The Eagles announced on Wednesday that Blount, 30, has agreed to a new contract to join them in Philadelphia.

The favored target of quarterback Carson Wentz last season, Burton was one of the lone bright spots on the offense last season due to his breakout performance.
