Deion Branch is a Patriot again

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...patriot-again/

Posted by Michael David Smith on October 11, 2010 9:27 PM ET

The New England Patriots have found their replacement for Randy Moss.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Patriots have acquired wide receiver Deion Branch in a trade with the Seahawks.

Branch played for the Patriots from 2002 to 2005 and won a Super Bowl MVP award. He's played in Seattle since 2006 and never became the No. 1 receiver the Seahawks hoped he would be.

Now he's back with his original team, and Tom Brady's new target is one of his favorite old targets.

Saints sign Julius Jones

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-julius-jones/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 12, 2010 4:27 PM ET

The Saints want to give another veteran running back a try.

PFT's Mike Florio reports that the Saints signed Julius Jones, per a league source.

The move indicates a few things. First, perhaps Pierre Thomas isn't a lock to return to the lineup this week. Saints coach Sean Payton also can't be thrilled with his tandem of Ladell Betts and Chris Ivory.

Both Betts and Ivory have put up decent stats, but Betts had a fumble and dropped a pass against the Cardinals that resulted in an interception. Ivory has struggled with fumbles and pass protection.

It's unclear what corresponding roster move the Saints will make with Jones coming aboard.

Kind of odd considering they only got a third for Moss. Not much of a value difference between the two, yet there is a HUGE talent discrepancy. The Pats got jobbed.

Reading this I see we're not the only ones who've had to deal with a lot of injuries...

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid has not ruled out quarterback Michael Vick for Sunday's game against his old team the Atlanta Falcons.

Kevin Kolb is still expected to start in place of Vick, who is recovering from a rib cartilage injury, but Reid said Wednesday that Vick could return to practice by the end of the week. If that does not happen, the former Pro Bowl quarterback would miss his second game.

"He's still recovering," Reid said. "He started to lift some, but he's not throwing. We'll just see how he progresses. Kevin will take the reps at practice."

Vick hurt himself during the first quarter of the Eagles' loss to the Washington Redskins and missed last week's game against the San Francisco 49ers, when Kolb led the team to victory. Vick could sit out next weekend at Tennessee, too, because the Eagles have a bye week after that.

In other injury news, defensive tackle Broderick Bunkley will skip surgery after hurting his elbow last Sunday in San Francisco and try to make it back on the field in a few weeks. Bunkley is expected to be doubtful against the Falcons.

"Originally, it looked like he needed surgery," Reid said. "After the doctors met it was decided, let's give him an opportunity to rehab, brace it up and give him some time. It's a stretch for him to go this week, but we'll see from there."

Reid said veteran defensive tackles Trevor Laws and Antonio Dixon will rotate in place of Bunkley next to starter Mike Patterson.

"It's a loss, a huge loss," Patterson said. "The guys who are the backups have to step up now. Trevor and Dixon, they have to come up big for us."

Left tackle Jason Peters tore the meniscus in his knee in last Sunday's win over San Francisco and will have arthroscopic surgery Thursday. There was no timetable for his return, and third-year man King Dunlap will make his first career start in the NFL.

"I have confidence in King," Reid said. "There were a few plays last week he'd like to have back. I'm sure he would tell you that. But he did OK."

Running back LeSean McCoy, who played last week with a broken rib and and gained 138 total yards against San Francisco, sat out of practice but is expected back by the end of the week. One of his key blockers, left guard Todd Herremans, also sat out with a sore knee but expects to be back on the field as soon as Thursday.

On a more positive note, Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel nd backup wide receiver Riley Cooper ere back at practice Wednesday. Both missed last week's game after concussions.

The Eagles have had 11 players miss game with injuries already this season, including starting center Jamaal Jackson and fullback Leonard Weaver, who are on injured reserve.

"Crazy, isn't it?" Patterson said. "Maybe they'll rethink that extension [of two regular-season games] to the season."

Report: Vincent Jackson, Logan Mankins will return to work

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-return-dates/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 13, 2010 11:16 PM ET

The last remaining pair of unsigned restricted free agents are coming back to work. Just not quite yet.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that wide receiver Vincent Jackson will report to the Chargers by October 31 and Patriots guard Logan Mankins will report to the Patriots by November 16 after the NFLPA recommended they do so.

The players need to show up by those dates to earn an accrued season and avoid the possibility of being restricted free agents again next year, regardless of what happens with the next collective bargaining agreement. Both players should play six games this season.

The dates are different because the Chargers placed Jackson on the roster exempt list. Like his teammate Marcus McNeill, Jackson will have to wait three weeks after he reports before he can play in a regular season game.

The NFLPA sought to clarify the matter in recent weeks to make sure the players would be protected in 2011 and that teams couldn't possibly bar them from reporting. The news doesn't come as a big surprise because we mentioned a similar report last week. Mankins' agent also didn't rule out a return.

It's important to note Mortensen leaves open the possibility that the players could report before their deadline date. Perhaps the return date could be influenced by contract talks.

When McNeill returned, he quickly got a new contract. It wouldn't be a shock if that happened with Mankins, but it would be very surprising if the Chargers signed Jackson long term.

All of Tampa Bay's home games likely to be blacked out this year:


http://www.thestreet.com/story/10889...bref=obnetwork


Though the article is mainly about Tampa, here's my favorite part, which talks about the Raiders:

Their fans haven't seen a home game on television since the 2009 home opener, they've had 10 straight home games blacked out and they've missed 79 of the Raiders' past 123 home games since the team moved back to Oakland from Los Angeles in 1995.

Absolute embarassing.

Junior Seau hospitalized after driving SUV off cliff, report says

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...f-report-says/

Posted by Michael David Smith on October 18, 2010 1:01 PM ET
Former NFL linebacker Junior Seau, who was arrested early this morning on domestic violence charges, is reportedly hospitalized after driving his SUV off a cliff.

TMZ is reporting that Seau drove his SUV off a cliff in Carlsbad, California, this morning, just hours after he was released from the Vista Detention Facility. He survived the crash but was injured and transported to a local hospital.

A photo that appears to show Seau's SUV at the bottom of a cliff near a beach has been published by TMZ.

Seau is in his first year of retirement from the NFL after playing his 20th and final NFL season in 2009 for the Patriots. He has always had a reputation as a pillar of the community, and his Seau Foundation raises money for child abuse prevention and college scholarships, among other causes.

NFL ready to start suspending players for helmet-to-helmet hits

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...o-helmet-hits/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 18, 2010 12:44 PM ET

Sunday's cavalcade of helmet-to-helmet hits could inspire real change in how such penalties are policed moving forward.

NFL vice president Ray Anderson told the The Associated Press the league may start suspending players for dangerous helmet-to-helmet hits. (They are listening to Rodney Harrison apparently.)

The change could take place immediatley. "Going forward there are certain hits that occurred that will be more susceptible to suspension," Anderson said.

The league could go even further after the season.

"[Anderson] said NFL could change rules after the season to ban all hits with helmets," Judy Battista of the New York Times relays.

So who could be suspended? Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather, Steelers linebacker James Harrison, and Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson would seem to be in the most danger. Robinson would be an especially tough hit to police because of where he made contact with Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson.

Anderson says he can handle any criticism.

"If we've got to face the backlash of those who say we're making the game too soft, then so be it," he told the New York Times.

The New England Patriots are unlikely to deal guard Logan Mankins before Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET trade deadline, according to a league source.


There's no need to fret about missing any games. You can watch every contest again with Game Rewind. Get more information here.
The Patriots are seeking a first-round draft pick or a high second-round selection for the two-time Pro Bowl guard, according to the source. Mankins has refused to sign his contract tender, and no team has met the Patriots' trade threshold to this point.

Mankins also is seeking a deal worth about $8 million per season -- which would put him in line with the top interior linemen in the game. If he isn't traded, Mankins will have to report by Nov. 16 to ensure he gets an accrued season and will not be a restricted free agent again.

According to league sources, Mankins plans to sign his tender by then if he isn't dealt.


I say we pull the trigger!

Dallas Clark out indefinitely, possibly for season

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ly-for-season/

Posted by Michael David Smith on October 20, 2010 5:59 PM ET

There's some very bad injury news out today for the Indianapolis Colts.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Colts tight end Dallas Clark has a hand/wrist injury that will sideline him indefinitely, if not for the season.

It's not known what, exactly, the nature of the injury is, but whatever it is, a hand/wrist injury isn't something a receiving tight end can just play through. This sounds like a significant injury to one of the Colts' most important players.

Colts coach Jim Caldwell said Clark is "being evaluated" but gave no other details.

Colts put Dallas Clark on injured reserve

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...jured-reserve/

Posted by Michael David Smith on October 22, 2010 11:50 AM ET

The news on Dallas Clark's injured wrist is about as bad as it could possibly be.

The Colts announced today that Clark, their Pro Bowl tight end, needs season-ending wrist surgery. He will go on injured reserve.

"It's unfortunate, but it's been confirmed that surgery is necessary to repair the injury to my wrist," Clark said in a statement released by the team. "I have met with three great surgeons, Dr. [Arthur] Rettig of the Colts, Dr. [Thomas] Wiedrich in Chicago and Dr. [Thomas] Graham in Cleveland. All three have helped me and my family out tremendously during this process. I look forward to supporting my teammates the rest of this season and rehabilitating my wrist back to full strength for next season."

Clark has been the Colts' starting tight end since they drafted him in 2003. This season he's third on the team with 37 catches for 347 yards, and second on the team with three touchdowns.

That's a huge loss for the Colts. Clark was a critical third ingredient that let the Colts set up a lot of what they wanted to do on offense.

Steven Jackson became the leading rusher in franchise history of the Rams, passing Eric Dickerson for the top spot. Jackson finished the game with 110 yards against the Bucs on 22 carries, and he now has 7,324 rushing yards for his career.

That's amazing. Seems so quick to reach that mark. I remember Eric Dickerson. He had such an upright style that you never thought he would last long in the NFL, but he just had such a sixth sense about contact and was always able to avoid the big hits. Plus, he wore every piece of equipment Riddell ever came up with.

Bucs release Jerramy Stevens

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...rramy-stevens/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 25, 2010 11:23 AM ET Jerramy Stevens' Bucs career essentially ended when he was arrested for possession of cannabis with intent to sell on Saturday night.

The Bucs benched Stevens Sunday, and announced they released him on Monday.

The transaction will probably mark the end of Stevens' NFL career, as well. His long history of off-field problems, not to mention his age and skill set, should make him hands off for the rest of the NFL.

The best team in the NFC also promoted tight end Ryan Purvis to the active roster.

As Florio pointed out Sunday, the only questions remaining with Stevens regard the curious timing of the arrest, and whether a Stevens trial could implicate others on the team.
