Well, here's a shocker. Mel Kiper is being let go by ESPN because they couldn't agree on language in his contract. I assume that Sporting News, SI.com, et al. now go after him, but isn't a large part of Kiper's value his being on set during the draft broadcast?
After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
