    June 13, 2019 7:44 am EST

    Roddy White will be the 11th member inducted into the Falcons Ring of Honor, the team announced Tuesday. The ceremony will take place before the Week 14 game vs. the Carolina Panthers on Dec. 8.

    To break the news, White's former teammates Matt Ryan and Michael Jenkins met with him at the team's headquarters. Highlights from White's career were playing as he walked in and Ryan shared the news.

    "So, Rod, Jenk and I just wanted to be the first ones to welcome you to the Falcons Ring of Honor -- you're going in there," Ryan...

    Cleveland Browns News: Nat King Cole’s grandson fighting for a spot

    Cleveland Browns News: Nat King Cole’s grandson fighting for a spot
    June 04, 2019 12:44 pm EST

    Undrafted rookie free agent Wyatt Ray is pursuing a football dream, but he has music royalty in his blood. Ray is the grandson of musician and civil rights trailblazer Nat King Cole, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.

    “The color barriers that he broke and all the racial issues he had to deal with traveling and playing in the south pushes me every day,” Ray said.

    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame director of curatorial affairs Nwaka Onwusa said, "Nat King Cole was mentally tough for so many reasons, but during the time he was coming out there were so many...

    Logan Ryan, Titans’ ‘dog whisperer,’ pushes animal rescue into spotlight with fundraiser

    Logan Ryan, Titans’ ‘dog whisperer,’ pushes animal rescue into spotlight with fundraiser
    June 02, 2019 8:08 am EST

    In the Titans’ locker room, Logan Ryan is known as the dog whisperer. Just ask Marcus Mariota. When the Titans quarterback needed help training his dog, he gave Ryan a call.

    “He helped me kind of figure out potty training,” Mariota said. “Just a little tip here and there. He’s done a lot for me.”

    Ryan and his wife, Ashley, have done a lot for animals, which was evident to the over 350 guests at The Bell Tower in downtown Nashville on Friday for “The Chow Down.”

    Detroit Lions backup QB Tom Savage may have stronger arm than Matthew Stafford

    Detroit Lions backup QB Tom Savage may have stronger arm than Matthew Stafford
    May 31, 2019 7:52 am EST

    For the first time since the Detroit Lions drafted Matthew Stafford, the team could have a quarterback with arm strength that equals — or perhaps surpasses — that of the NFL’s No. 1 overall draft pick in 2009.

    Tom Savage signed this offseason to compete for the job as Stafford’s backup and during organized team activities, the Houston Texans fourth-round pick has shown off his cannon of an arm.

    But just how far can Savage throw the football?

    “I’d probably say on a good day, indoors, with the fan to my back, maybe 75 (yards),” he said...

    Cardinals DC Vance Joseph has his eyes on LB Dennis Gardeck

    Cardinals DC Vance Joseph has his eyes on LB Dennis Gardeck
    May 24, 2019 8:38 am EST

    Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph is getting to know his defensive personnel now that the offseason is underway. He has several players he has known from previous teams and a few carryovers from last season.

    Who is a player who has caught his attention? He named one of last year’s undrafted rookies who stood out on special teams, linebacker Dennis Gardeck.

    Joseph had a funny way of describing him.

    “I think a guy that’s going to be a guy that’s going to be a real guy is Gardeck,” he said on the Coaches Chronicle podcast.

    Janoris Jenkins survived Giants purge and is facing next challenge

    Janoris Jenkins survived Giants purge and is facing next challenge
    May 22, 2019 2:44 pm EST

    Cornerbacks are part of a defense and members of a team, of course, but they are often on an island — not in the Tom Hanks/“Cast Away’’ sense, but in that they often do their best work in isolation, one-on-one with a receiver.

    Janoris Jenkins in many ways is the quintessential cornerback. He is quirky and confident, upbeat and unusual, insisting everyone call him “Jackrabbit’’ and giving off an unflappable vibe after wins and losses, offering up the same persona after a pass breakup or a blown coverage, never sweating the small stuff.

    Jenkins started all...

    Get to know Dolphins rookie tackle Isaiah Prince

    Get to know Dolphins rookie tackle Isaiah Prince
    May 20, 2019 12:50 pm EST

    Miami Dolphins rookie tackle Isaiah Prince is hard to miss. At a legitimate 6-foot-6 and 305 pounds, Prince looks the part of an NFL offensive tackle. And with 35.5″ arms, Prince has the kind of reach that NFL coaches covet so dearly. Why?

    Because longer arms equate to a bigger strike zone and in the NFL, it is often he who strikes first that wins the rep. Having that kind of reach can help to mask a lot of fundamental issues. Consider it something of a life preserver. When things go wrong, long-armed tackles can fall back on their length to stay connected to their man.

    Joe Thomas: Greg Robinson can be a Pro Bowl left tackle

    Joe Thomas: Greg Robinson can be a Pro Bowl left tackle
    May 20, 2019 12:46 pm EST

    Greg Robinson took the left tackle job with the Cleveland Browns and ran with it last season. The Browns made the decision to part with offensive line coach Bob Wylie and hire offensive line/associate head coach James Campen during the off-season. Former Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas believes that

    "I got a chance to talk to James in the off-season after he got hired. I'm really excited for what he is going to do with Greg Robinson. Greg played some really good football last year but we all know that he can improve even on what he did last year. With the tutelage of James Campen, I think Greg Robinson can be that Pro Bowl left...

    Titans’ Kevin Byard, Logan Ryan pay for portion of Toni Harris’ mother’s funeral

    Titans’ Kevin Byard, Logan Ryan pay for portion of Toni Harris’ mother’s funeral
    May 20, 2019 8:30 am EST

    Logan Ryan has a daughter. Kevin Byard has one on the way. That’s left both members of the Titans’ secondary even more susceptible to the inspiring efforts of Toni Harris and what she’s doing for women in football.

    So much so that they were compelled to act.

    Ryan, a cornerback, and Byard, a safety, paid a portion of the funeral costs for Harris’ mother, who passed away last week.

    Harris, 22, is the first female to receive a full college scholarship for football as a non-specialist. In February, she signed a letter of intent to play safety for...

    O-Line guru: Giants trio can restore unit’s glory days

    O-Line guru: Giants trio can restore unit’s glory days
    May 20, 2019 8:27 am EST

    There are three Giants a certain offensive-line guru finds intriguing, believing they have the potential to anchor the position group for years to come.

    They are not newcomers Kevin Zeitler and Mike Remmers. It is not Nate Solder, entering year No. 2 for the Giants. That is the veteran trio viewed widely as the answer to all those nagging offensive-line questions that befuddled the team for so many years.

    They are Will Hernandez, Jon Halapio and, yes, Chad Wheeler, youngsters...

    Bobby Massie explains passing on free agency to re-sign with the Bears: ‘Wait for a few more pennies

    Bobby Massie explains passing on free agency to re-sign with the Bears: ‘Wait for a few more pennies
    March 29, 2019 1:12 pm EST

    At just after 9 a.m. Monday, Bobby Massie walked in through the back doors of LeCharles Bentley’s O-Line Performance center.

    Tucked away in a nondescript office park, you’d never know OLP is there unless you peeked inside at the powerlifting equipment and spacious environment for large men to hone their craft. Weights clanked and players did work on the artificial turf surface as Massie showed up for work, a routine he has stuck to annually since entering...

    Browns sign LT Greg Robinson to a 1-year extension

    Browns sign LT Greg Robinson to a 1-year extension
    February 26, 2019 9:15 am EST

    Browns left tackle Greg Robinson has another shot to prove he can be the heir apparent to Joe Thomas.

    Robinson, the 2014 No. 2 overall pick out of Auburn, signed a one-year extension with the Browns on Monday, his agent Neil Schwartz announced on Twitter and the Browns confirmed. Financial terms were not immediately available, but he was due to become an unrestricted agent in March.

    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,...
