Fann Mail: What to make of Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny’s slow start in preseason

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

I think John Ursua is good enough to make the team and I think he's got a chance to make the team, but ultimately I don't think he will. Ursua has just two receptions in the preseason – a 21-yarder against the Denver Broncos and a 25-yarder against Minnesota – but he showed impressive run after the catch ability on both.

When the New England Patriots traded Garoppolo to the 49ers in October of 2017, a majority of Boston sports radio hosts lost their collective minds, believing they'd dealt Tom Brady's heir right before TB12 was about to hang them up.

The drama appears to be cooling off in Oakland, but things could really start heating up in Dallas. With one player nearing the end of his equipment dilemma, another is only digging himself into a deeper hole as he likely prepares to extend his contract holdout into the regular season. Three things that matter Antonio Brown 'helmetgate' could be nearing an end Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden told reporters the star receiver participated in Tuesday's practice at the team's facility with a certified helmet, which is a step in a positive direction considering Brown's other headgear has either been removed from the NFL's approved list or failed testing in recent weeks.

"Obviously there was a lot of excitement," he said. "I was anxious to get out there and everything but nothing too crazy. "It's something I haven't done in a year, obviously, so I got to knock the rust off and everything and thankfully we have a short week this week so we can bounce back quickly.

Q&A with Bears DC Chuck Pagano, on staying a life course and how the burden of proof is on him with Bears “D”

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

"You can tell [Pagano] is seasoned in the game," said linebacker Khalil Mack.
