    Chicago Bears sign lineman Bobby Massie to 4-year extension

    Chicago Bears sign lineman Bobby Massie to 4-year extension
    January 28, 2019 3:55 pm EST

    Veteran offensive lineman Bobby Massie has signed a four-year extension with the Chicago Bears, the team announced Saturday.

    The right tackle, who was headed toward free agency, has started all 46 regular-season games in which he has appeared over the past three seasons for Chicago, including all 17 games for the Bears in 2018.

    "Bobby has been an important part of our offensive line the past three years and has shown steady improvement during that time,"...

    ‘Grizzly’ worst-to-first specialist Bobby Massie wants to stay a Bear

    ‘Grizzly’ worst-to-first specialist Bobby Massie wants to stay a Bear
    January 04, 2019 9:28 am EST

    Bobbie Massie went through down times--both as a Bear and before that--over four years as an Arizona Cardinal. He is at the end of the three-year contract that brought him to Chicago, and the time is coming for him (and the Bears) to determine whether he is a Bear or headed to become something else.

    Massie has already made that determination.

    “I’m a Bear. Grizzly as hell,” Massie said, laughing. “I am a Bear through and through.”

    Massie still spends some offseason time back in Phoenix, training at LeCharles Bentley’s “LB O-Line Performance” facility, but “[Chicago is] a place I call home. This is my home. I would love to be...

    Raiders’ Brandon LaFell says he will return from Achilles’ tear

    Raiders’ Brandon LaFell says he will return from Achilles’ tear
    December 27, 2018 11:53 am EST

    Brandon LaFell’s football story begins in the third grade. He played quarterback, a position at which he remained until his junior year at Houston-Lamar High. A teammate then arrived late to a seven-on-seven passing league tournament. LaFell, a reserve quarterback, moved to receiver in his place.

    He wouldn’t play quarterback again.
    “We won the tournament,” LaFell said. “I got MVP of the tournament. Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, University of Houston offered me (a scholarship) the same day.”
    His football story, LaFell insists, isn’t over.
    The Raiders wide receiver is recovering from an Achilles’ tendon tear he suffered Nov. 18,...

    Titans’ Logan Ryan to miss remainder of season with broken fibula

    Titans’ Logan Ryan to miss remainder of season with broken fibula
    December 18, 2018 9:20 am EST

    Logan Ryan took it upon himself to break the news. "I believe the player should break his own news about his body," the Titans cornerback posted on Twitter on Monday morning above an attached message in which he stated he'll miss the remainder of the season with a broken left fibula.

    Ryan suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of the Titans' 17-0 win over the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. He stayed down after a play while receiving medical attention before hobbling to the sideline under his own power.

    "I poured my heart and soul into this season so it's unfortunate," Ryan wrote. "However,...

    Janoris Jenkins makes Giant turnaround, playing his best ball of season
    December 04, 2018 2:11 pm EST

    Not a lot of football games end in walk-off plays, and when they do, it typically is a kicker or an offensive player who gets to celebrate such an accomplishment.

    That’s why when Janoris Jenkins heard the defensive call on the fourth-down play in overtime against the Bears on Sunday and knew right away that the final snap of the game would be coming his way, he was excited.

    And when he made the play, swatting away a deep pass in man coverage without anyone near him to help, he was thrilled.

    Browns left tackle Greg Robinson making most of his ‘third chance’ in NFL

    Browns left tackle Greg Robinson making most of his ‘third chance’ in NFL
    November 30, 2018 8:24 am EST

    When Browns players ran onto the field at Paul Brown Stadium to stretch before Sunday’s 35-20 road win over the Cincinnati Bengals, left tackle Greg Robinson received some chest bumps and playful punches from rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield.

    Robinson loved the exchange. The second overall pick in the 2014 draft is having fun and feeling comfortable with his new team. Mayfield is reaping the rewards.

    “He’s full of energy,” Robinson said Thursday as the Browns (4-6-1) prepared for Sunday’s road game against the Houston Texans (8-3). “And I appreciate it ’cause some days...

    Bucs rookie Alex Cappa makes NFL debut as O-line gets different look

    Bucs rookie Alex Cappa makes NFL debut as O-line gets different look
    November 27, 2018 9:15 am EST

    TAMPA — After spending the season's 10 games among the Bucs' inactives each week, rookie guard Alex Cappa made his NFL debut Sunday, playing 25 snaps at right guard.

    Cappa, a third-round pick out of Division II Humboldt State, said Monday that he's been anticipating his first game action and that a season of practice helped him prepare for his debut.

    "It's not too different," Cappa said. "You're obviously getting better being out here practicing every day, but it's good to get the experience....

    Why Xavier Su’a-Filo should remain the starter at LG over rookie Connor Williams  Read more here: ht
    November 16, 2018 12:52 pm EST

    Dallas Cowboys rookie second-round pick Connor Williams practiced on a limited basis Wednesday and appears to be on track to return to action against the Atlanta Falcons after missing last week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles following arthroscopic knee surgery.

    That doesn’t mean he will return to the starting lineup at left guard.

    Look for Xavier Su’a-Filo to keep the job after a strong effort against the Eagles. He was part of a unit that paved the way for running back Ezekiel Elliott to rush for 151 yards. Coach Jason Garrett said he graded out well against all-pro nose tackle Fletcher...

    Jason Garrett praises Xavier Su’a-Filo’s first start on Cowboys’ O-line: ‘He battled and competed ha
    November 14, 2018 9:11 am EST

    Xavier Su'a-Filo played well in his first start of the season at left guard, filling in for injured rookie Connor Williams. If Williams is unable to go this week, Su'a-Filo is expected to start again Sunday at Atlanta.

    "In this league, one good game, it's a good start, but especially as an individual you have to be consistent," Su'a-Filo said. "And that's the name of it."
    Su'a-Filo, who signed a two-year deal with the Cowboys after Dallas' Week 1 loss at Carolina, has plenty of experience starting at the NFL level. After being drafted by Houston...

    Baker Mayfield lobbies hard for more Greg Robinson at left tackle
    November 05, 2018 8:07 am EST

    Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield lobbied hard for more Greg Robinson at left tackle after Sunday’s 37-21 loss to the Chiefs.

    On two occasions, Mayfield mentioned Robinson — who subbed for an ill Desmond Harrison — when asked about positives from the game.

    “Greg Robinson starting at left tackle and playing well,’’ said Mayfield, citing Robinson as the first good thing to come out of the loss, which dropped the Browns to 2-6-1.

    Jackson made his first mark in Tampa on the football field. His next mark is coming in the boardroom.

    Wide receiver Brandon LaFell expands role in Raiders’ offense

    Wide receiver Brandon LaFell expands role in Raiders’ offense
    October 31, 2018 7:33 am EST

    After signing with the Raiders on Sept. 3, receiver Brandon LaFell played just 40 offensive snaps in their first six games and did not have a catch.

    On Sunday against the Colts, LaFell led the Raiders’ receivers by playing 46 snaps and had three catches for 39 yards, including a 6-yard touchdown.
    Despite his limited early use, several Raiders said they weren’t surprised to see LaFell take on a larger role in the team’s first game since the trade of Amari Cooper.

    How Garrett Grayson became Broncos’ newest quarterback

    How Garrett Grayson became Broncos’ newest quarterback
    October 30, 2018 4:45 pm EST

    Garrett Grayson walked through the front door of his home in Nashville on Wednesday, just returned from a day of meetings for his budding real estate company, when the phone rang with an opportunity for a career detour.

    Grayson, the former Colorado State quarterback (2011-14) who earned totals of 9,190 passing yards and 64 touchdowns, traded his business attire for a Denver Broncos uniform after the team cut backup quarterback Chad Kelly and promoted wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie to the active roster.

    Saints’ Larry Warford plays full game despite back issue, praises Cameron Tom
    October 23, 2018 9:53 am EST

    The back issue that caused Larry Warford to miss one practice last week and be listed as questionable for Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens will be something that requires maintenance through the entire season, he said Monday (Oct. 22).

    Nevertheless, the veteran offensive lineman hasn’t missed a single snap on offense this season for the New Orleans Saints.

    Warford played all 71 snaps in the 24-23 comeback win against the Baltimore Ravens. His services were especially needed when Cameron Tom, Warford’s backup at right guard, replaced an injured Josh LeRibeus at left...

    Niners Sign Ex-Texans Quarterback Tom Savage

    Niners Sign Ex-Texans Quarterback Tom Savage
    October 18, 2018 11:35 am EST

    When the 49ers lost Jimmy Garoppolo earlier this season, head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated the team would eventually add a veteran quarterback to the roster.

    With C.J. Beathard elevated to the starting job, his only backup has been Nick Mullens, a second-year undrafted free agent from Southern Mississippi promoted from the practice squad. That left the Niners in a precarious position if Beathard were to go down. And, in the games since he’s been the No. 1, Beathard has been hit often.
    So,...
