The NFL and Players' New Concussion Settlement

There's good news for retired players looking to get treatment from the NFL for injuries suffered during their professional careers. The NFL and retired players have agreed to a renewed settlement in the ongoing concussion lawsuits. The initial settlement, which was turned down by the federal courts, put a cap on damages at $765 million dollars. That sounds like a lot of money, but when you take into account how expensive and intensive treatment for concussions and other head injuries can be, it wasn't really enough. The settlement was supposed to last for 65 years, and it seems highly doubtful that it would be enough money to cover every retired player for that long.

The 2014 NFL Draft Quarterbacks Review

The Cleveland Browns finally finalized first-round quarterback Johnny Manziel’s contract, signing the ex-Texas A&M player to a four-year deal worth about $8.25 million, plus a fifth-year team option. With Manziel under contract, the rookie quarterback with the best chance of starting in 2014 is now fully ready to begin working out with the team. While the Browns management continues to insist Brian Hoyer will be the starting lineup, Manziel’s talent and the expectations of being a first-round pick, will likely see him behind center sooner rather than later.

Colin Kaepernick: The New Standard for Quarterback Contracts

The San Francisco 49ers may have found a new model for future quarterback contracts. The 49ers recently re-signed Colin Kaepernick to a six-year contract extension worth $126 million dollars. That would make Kaepernick the highest-paid quarterback of all time, with an average salary just under that of Aaron Rodgers.

Wide Receiver Free Agents: Is Decker Worth the Money?

Duringthis offseason, Eric Decker was amongst the abundance amount of talent in the wide receiver free agency category. There were many big name WRs such as Eric Decker, Jeremy Maclin, AnquanBoldin, and Hakeem Nicks. These players did in fact "receive" a "wide" contract. However, ex-Bronco's wide receiver Eric Decker got the most attention when he parted ways with the Broncos Franchise.

The Dan Marino Accidental Lawsuit

How do you accidentally sue someone? A day after headlines trumpeted a new lawsuit against the NFL led by Dan Marino, it turns out that Marino had somehow seen his name accidentally added to the list of plaintiffs. He has since withdrawn. The lawsuit accuses the NFL of concealing information and misleading players as to the lasting effects of brain injuries, but Marino now claims he suffers no ill-effects from head injuries.

Sean Lee Injury Starts NFL Season

Less than 24 hours into the formal beginning of offseason training activities, we have our first major injury of the 2014 NFL season. According to ESPN, star linebacker Sean Lee of the Dallas Cowboys has torn his left ACL, the third ACL tear of his football career. Lee was injured in a non-contact practice, though "non-contact" is a bit of a misnomer: Lee was blocked to the ground on a screen pass by first-round pick Zack Martin. While we're still waiting the results of the MRI, it doesn't look good for the oft-injured linebacker.

The History of Drafting NFL Quarterbacks

With the third pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected Blake Bortles, quarterback from the University of Central Florida. The logic's certainly there—considering the Jaguars have spent the last three years dealing with the likes of Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne behind center, picking a quarterback was the most important thing they could do to kick-start their rebuilding process.

The Anti 2014 NFL Draft: Picking the Best Players Every Team Doesn't Need

NFL draft coverage can be so negative. We're always talking about what teams don't have, where they're missing key players. We highlight and dwell over a team's shortcomings, all the while ignoring the strengths they have. With that in mind, and with apologies to Sports on Earth's Mike Tanier, let's try to construct a bizzaro-world, worst possible mock draft. We're giving each team players they frankly don't need—the worst pick they could make in each slot, while still taking first-round-caliber talent.

NFL Football: 2014 NFL Mock Draft

The trouble with mock drafts is the ease at which they crumble. All it takes is one wrong pick at the top of the draft for the entire thing to collapse under its own weight—if the Texans , for example, take Jadeveon Clowney instead of Blake Bortles, that starts a cascade effect, where the team that you mocked to take Clowney has to take a new pick, and so on and so forth down the line.

The Top Ten Draft Classes in NFL History

There's nothing like a draft going perfectly to revitalize a team's fortunes. When you nail multiple draft choices in a year, you're getting an influx of talent for years to come. Of course, it's easier to nail draft choices when you're picking high in the draft. It's more impressive to find gems in the later rounds then it is to pick the best player with the top pick—finding Tom Brady in the sixth round is more impressive than finding Peyton Manning with the first pick.
