With a number of Seahawks players in trouble the past few seasons for failed positive PED tests, the team reportedly has released the backup quarterback who was arrested this month on suspicion of DUI.
That would be Josh Portis, who was arrested May 5 and is scheduled to be arraigned May 28.
Though Portis' agent, JR Rickert, was adamant Portis was not arrested -- that tweet has since been deleted -- the Seahawks cut him Tuesday, according to the Everett Herald.
Nobody expected Victor Cruz to show up for the Giants' OTA workout on Wednesday. That Hakeem Nicks also didn't show up, however, was a much larger surprise. Nicks, who was in Manhattan just a night earlier, was nowhere to be found at the Giants facility on Wednesday, a concerning absence. Cruz is embroiled in an ongoing contract dispute with the Giants, so few expected him to work with the team. But Giants coach Tom Coughlin had been expecting Nicks to attend. "I don't know," Coughlin said after the session. "He should be here."
Brian Urlacher, former Chicago Bears All-Pro linebacker, announced his retirement from the NFL via Twitter on Wednesday, three days shy of his 35th birthday.
Urlacher was an unsigned free agent but spent his entire career in Chicago and retires as a Bear.
“After spending a lot of time this spring thinking about my NFL future, I have made a decision to retire,” Urlacher wrote in a statement.
“Although I could continue playing, I’m not sure I would bring a level of performance or passion that’s up to my standards. When considering this, along with the fact that I could retire after a 13-year career wearing only one jersey for such a...
As expected, the NFL awarded Super Bowl L to San Francisco and Super Bowl LI to Houston. Miami was the losing city in both cases.
San Francisco won out because it will have a $1.2 billion state-of-the-art stadium to showcase the milestone 50th Super Bowl, which will be played in February 2016. That was too much for Miami to overcome—especially after the Florida Legislature recently opted not to vote on a bill that would have provided $350 million in public funding for a critical renovation of Sun Life Stadium.
Without the renovation, Miami’s chances were doomed despite its rich Super Bowl history. For the same reason, Miami wasn’t...
Cornerback Leon Hall won't be available when the Cincinnati Bengals begin their OTA work with their first practice on Tuesday. And in fact he may miss several offseason practices, which concludes on June 13 with the completion of the team's three-day mandatory minicamp.
Hall suffered a "torn thumb ligament" earlier this month while lifting, but he's expected to return before the completion of this year's OTA practices.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will miss at least three weeks of offseason workouts after a procedure to remove a cyst from his back.
The team's website reported Tuesday that Romo underwent the procedure last month and could return for the mandatory minicamp that starts June 11. He will be ready for training camp in July.
Romo signed a six-year, $108 million extension with $55 million guaranteed in March.
The Dallas Morning News reported that the outpatient procedure was performed before the NFL draft. Romo was restricted to light conditioning work in April but has been cleared to throw.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell believes football can thrive in England, which is why he's considering expanding the overseas schedule. Goodell spoke on Tuesday at the Spring League Meetings and addressed the media's questions on the subject. "Much to the disappointment of my staff when they told me the two games in London were sold out, I said, ???Okay, what's next and what can we do to continue our progress, in the UK in particular and internationally in general?'" Goodell said. "There are multiple things that our committee is doing and they reported on that today. Potentially going to three games is one alternative." Currently,...
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree suffered a torn Achilles tendon during organized team activities Tuesday and will soon undergo what could be season-ending surgery, a person informed of the injury told USA TODAY Sports.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the 49ers haven't commented on the injury, which used to be an automatic season-ender but has since become one that can sometimes be rehabbed in a matter of months -- as Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Da'Quan Bowers did last year.
Both players tore the tendon in the spring and returned to the field...
General Manager Bruce Allen said Monday it’s “too early to tell right now” if quarterback Robert Griffin III will be ready to practice when the Washington Redskins open training camp in late July.
“It’s great to hear the building is on schedule, ahead of schedule, and I’ve heard all those same phrases for our quarterback,” Allen said at a tour for reporters of the team’s under-construction training camp site in Richmond. “It’s too early to tell right now. He is doing everything that the doctors want him to do. He’s a great worker. I think that’s why there’s so much optimism that he’ll be ready at the beginning. But it’s really too...
Broadway Joe is at it again. Joe Namath calls Gang Green's prized rookie QB Geno Smith a "sensational athlete" with "good size." And Namath also thinks drafting Smith was unnecessary. "No, I don't think they needed a quarterback," Namath said at the United Way's 20th annual Gridiron Gala at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel on Tuesday. "They needed the other positions filled. Possibly offensive line. They got some defensive line. The safeties are still questionable. The outside linebackers are still questionable." To Namath, the Jets already had a quality quarterback in embattled starter Mark Sanchez. Sanchez has struggled in the last two seasons....
