News: Rob Gronkowski surgery; Cruz deal

Another week down, another week closer to the start of the NFL season.

Here is what has happened in the NFL over the past week:


  • Report: LeGarrette Blount takes pay cut with Patriots
  • Chargers LB Donald Butler on Manti Te’o: ‘He has to prove himself’. Any rookie is in this same boat so to hear a player say this doesn’t do anything for me
  • Vikings’ Lawrence Jackson says gay players on field, in locker room a non-issue. It shouldn’t be and I’m glad to hear somebody come out and say it in the NFL
  • Vikings’ Chris Kluwe: Activist punter says ‘So long, Minnesota’
  • Browns DE Armonty Bryant charged with DUI less than one week after being drafted
  • Dolphins CEO Mike Dee: Fins’ future in Miami ‘bleak’
  • Kicker John Kasay retiring as a Panther. More than 20 years in the NFL? Even if it’s kicking, it’s still impressive
  • Jaguars’ owner Shad Khan ‘fascinated’ about fascination over former Jets QB Tim Tebow. It’s not like the Jaguars have the quarterback of the future so why would they not give the hometown kid a chance? At worst, he will boost ticket sales
  • Mike Iupati had offseason surgery, likely to miss some OTAs
  • Brian Cushing ‘looks like he’s ready,’ Gary Kubiak says
  • Jets rookie QB Geno Smith denies he’s a diva. We’ll see when the time comes
  • Bills star Mario Williams sues to get $785,000 engagement ring back
  • Ryan Clark: Amendola is fragile; Brady ducks when he’s blitzed. Ryan Clark doesn’t know when to stop talking. He goes on these shows on ESPN and constantly digs the Steelers in a hole by talking down against a team or player. Pittsburgh will travel to New England this season…I’m sure Brady will take it to him and the Steelers’ defense
  • Jaguars sign CB Marcus Trufant
  • Browns Armonty Bryant pleads no contest to DUI, receives one-year deferred sentence
  • Eagles worked out former Cowboys RB Felix Jones. He would be a good pick-up inside Chip Kelly’s offensive system
  • John Mara confident Victor Cruz deal will come. When it does, expect the contract to be huge. He deserves it
  • Former Detroit Lions’ receiver Titus Young arrested twice in 15 hours
  • Rondo Barber retires after 16 seasons. Barber will go down as one of the best players in Tampa Bay Buccaneers history


Here is the latest injury news around the NFL:


  • Jared Allen declares shoulder 95 percent healed
  • Redskins LB Brian Orakpo optimistic about recovery. Washington’s defense was the bugaboo last season, at times, but Orakpo changes things when he’s healthy
  • Darius Slay reportedly had arthroscopic knee surgery
  • Julian Edelman reinjured right foot, will miss OTAs
  • Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski faces 4th surgery. He’s a great a talent but he has to be healthy to effective and more often than not, he hasn’t been healthy
