01/30 The final Seahawks-Patriots injury report: Not a lot to see here
The Patriots and Seahawks will head into Super Bowl XLIX pretty healthy. Or at least as healthy as you'd expect two teams to be after playing 18 NFL games. The Patriots have the only player in the matchup listed as questionable -- center Bryan Stork. He was a limited participant in practice all week. He didn't play in the AFC Championship game because of a right knee injury. Six other Patriots are... [Read More]

01/30 Eagles RB LeSean McCoy not open to taking pay cut
While being interviewed at Super Bowl Radio Row on Thursday, Eagles RB LeSean McCoy said he didn't "want to take less money" in order to keep the current team together.

Philadelphia is expected to retain the stud back, but the organization would save $7.55 million if he was released. Unders... [Read More]

Reports out of St. Louis suggest that the Rams are interested in acquiring Eagles QB Nick Foles.

01/26 Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. says he played through 2 hamstring tears
Odell Beckham Jr.'s presence during the Giants' offseason workouts and training camp was barely a rumor.
