The Eagles are releasing Jeremiah Trotter. At age 29, they think he's lost a step. Omar Gaither had been playing some on the weakside, but had been practicing with the first-team defense for a couple of days while Trotter suited up with the second string, which was likely the final straw. A good chance Tank Daniels makes the team as the sixth linebacker and special teams guy now.
Trotter would still be a good fit for a team that can use a interior linebacker who can stop the run and spot him accordingly.

Well, after all that, the Broncos decided to trade Gerard Warren within the division. He'll head to Oakland for an undisclosed draft pick. You may commence your raiderjoe impersonations now.

D.J. Gallo might be one of the best things about football season. He runs from training camp to training camp and reports back on what he's seen.

Like Charles Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic, Bill Barnwell becomes the first pilot to fly solo on Scramble For The Ball! This week, Bill deals with unusual scoring systems, MJD vs. Cedric Benson, and how best to draft in a league where everyone else is dumber than you.

This is a fun piece in the Philadelphia Daily News looking at Sav Rocca and his reaction to getting leveled by Antwan Barnes of the Ravens in their preseason game.

DirecTV will be offering up to eleven games per week online for subscribers who are subscribers to both the NFL Sunday Ticket and NFL Superfan packages (total: $378).
Is this actually worth the extra $100 that the Superfan package costs?

Bengals RB Kenny Irons will miss all of his rookie season after tearing his ACL last night against the Lions.
With Chris Perry out until October at the earliest, that leaves the Bengals with a major hole at running back behind Rudi Johnson.
Could we see a return of Corey Dillon to his old stomping grounds?
