Per Mark Berman of FOX 26, the Houston Texans signed Matt Schaub to a four-year extension worth $62 million, with $24.7 million of that guaranteed. Houston is now locked into Schaub long-term, and despite his tendency to miss games, they're probably going to need a quarterback of his caliber to have a realistic hope of winning a Super Bowl. Hard to argue with re-signing him based on that logic, but this is riskier than most long-term extensions for good quarterbacks.

Bounty suspensions for Jonathan Vilma, Anthony Hargrove, Scott Fujita, and Will Smith by Roger Goodell were overturned by a three-member appeals panel.
"Victory is mine!!!! -stewie griffin," Vilma tweeted Friday afternoon.
I think that's all that really needs to be said.

Like you, we all enjoyed Kevin Ogletree's coming out party. And the return of football, that whole thing. So, we gabbed about it.

This week, PK has gloom about the replacement officials, but sunshine for the paying fans who have to endure the final preseason game. He also posits that the Ravens offense may be better than their defense this year.

Now the other pass-catching tight end in New England will be staying with the team for a very long time. Per the Boston Globe's Greg Bedard, it's a five-year extension worth $40 million, with a $12.5 million signing bonus and $16.4 million guaranteed.
