The Eagles have released Williams in a salary cap move, he signed with Philadelphia in 2013 with a three-year, $17 million deal, however his high cap hit of $8 million in 2015 made him expendable.

Troy Polamalu’s likely departure from the Pittsburgh Steelers shouldn’t be a surprise

When I was a tiny little Steelers fan in the early 80s, I learned of the retirement of Mean Joe Greene by watching a feature about it on NFL Films, which meant that I probably learned about it many weeks or even months later.

5 Free Agent RBs the Steelers Should Target to Back Up Bell

Stevan Ridley View image | If the Pittsburgh Steelers want to lighten to load on Bell substantially in 2015, Stevan Ridley might be a decent option.  He has had his fair share of turnover issues, but maybe in a lighter role, and under new coaches, in Mike Tomlin and Todd Haley, the issues would subside.

Nobody’s safe in the NFL and nothing is sacred

Part of the reason that the signing of Josh McCown was such big news in Cleveland is because it meant the end of Brian Hoyer. As a player, there’s nothing worth talking about with Brian. Even as I’ve supported him as a player, I only did so while acknowledging that in a given year, he could be, at best, a mediocre quarterback. For other fans it went deeper because Brian Hoyer...
