Dolphins take Kendrick Norton off active roster, maintain ability to pay 2019 salary

Sunday, July 21st, 2019

After at least six surgeries, defensive tackle Kendrick Norton has been released from a Miami hospital and is ready to take on life after the NFL. On Sunday, the Dolphins placed Norton on the reserve/non-football injury list, which makes him ineligible to practice and play this season. Norton's NFL career effectively ended when he narrowly survived the accident, but using this designation instead of just releasing him allows the Dolphins to pay his 2019 salary if they so choose.

Madden 20 ratings: Which 49ers players are underrated, overrated

Monday, July 15th, 2019

EA Sports unveiled its player ratings for "Madden NFL 20" on Monday, days before teams around the league begin to report for training camp and nearly two months before the start of the regular season.
