Late night breaking news: Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee has decided to retire and join Barstool Sports. Just 29, he cites his third knee surgery in four seasons as one of the reasons to make the move now. He had a bit of a down year by our numbers in 2016, but has been one of the better punters in the league and also a pretty darned good kickoff man.

Do you like to play in football box pools, especially in the Super Bowl? Are you curious about how the NFL's rule changes on extra points (both kicks and two-point attempts) are changing typical final scores? Good news! Greg Guglielmo at Eldo.co has researched the answers to those exact questions, and put together graphs that show just how weird scores have been in the past two years compared to prior seasons.

Michael Vick's essay on why he'll always think of himself as an Atlanta Falcon is just really nice. A love letter to the fanbase, with the added benefit of some very funny comments about Madden 2004.

This fascinating feature from The Washington Post counts down the top 100 high school prospects from National Signing Day 2007 and what happened to them in the 10 years since. It's sort of surprising how often even the best prospects from high school don't end up making a career in the NFL. Also, how many of them sell medical equipment now.

Hey everyone! The 14th annual Football Outsiders Reader Awards are now open for voting. This is our chance to find out who the FO readers think should be MVP, Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year, and more. We poll on overrated and underrated players (based on the Pro Bowl) and which ads you found the most entertaining and annoying during games this year. We've also got a special question this year to find out which young quarterback the FO readers prefer. Please vote before Saturday afternoon!
Even in what looks like an historically great class of running back prospects, LSU's Leonard Fournette comes out on top. The depth of quality options, though, makes it clear: 2017 is a great year to draft a runner.
