Paul Tagliabue comes in at No. 2 on the Sports Business Journal's list of the most powerful people in sports. (George Bodenheimer, president of ABC Sports and ESPN, is No. 1.) Other NFL names on the list include Robert Kraft, Jerry Jones, Pat Bowlen, and Malcolm Glazer. As Deadspin.com and BlackAthlete.net have pointed out, players union head Gene Upshaw is one of only two African-Americans on the list (NBA players union head Billy Hunter is the other.)

The Falcons are still trying to replace Tony Gonzalez, the Panthers must find a way to protect Cam Newton, the Bucs (as always) could use more pass rushers, and the Saints need anyone who can catch a football.
