The Titans made the inevitable official today, informing running back Chris Johnson he will be released. In a statement released by general manager Ruston Webster, they noted they tried to trade him but failed, unsurprisingly considering his scheduled $8 million salary. (Click to read more commentary.)

One sixth-rounder was all it took to secure the services of Mike Williams, as Lovie Smith continues to rebuild his offense around the old Chicago game plan.

Hey, kids! The 2014 Rookie Scouting Portfolio by our own "Futures" columnist Matt Waldman is now on sale. It's over 1,000 pages long -- seriously -- and covers 164 "skill position" prospects. You also get a post-draft add-on that discusses where each player was drafted and what that opportunity means for his fantasy value in both one-year and dynasty leagues. It costs $19.95, but ten percent of every sale is donated to Darkness to Light to combat sexual abuse.

Actually, this is all about tuning out Manziel Mania and spooling up your own game tape. But I guess that technically makes it part of Manziel mania.

Well, he's no Blaine Gabbert.
(What the hell?)
EDIT: The Redskins have now signed Jackson to a three-year deal.

Deadspin has a list of all the rules proposals, as well as the rules that actually passed. Yes, this is the thread where you make goalpost dunk jokes.

Is this the end of the murky "student-athlete" term? The real question is if this will hold up on appeal, but the NLRB believes that Northwestern athletes qualify as employees.

The biggest of the remaining free agent dominoes fell this morning, in a surprising place. Jared Allen is headed to his old rivals in Chicago, to replace Julius Peppers. It's a four-year, $32 million contract that's more like a two-year, $15.5 million guaranteed contract. I really don't think Allen is anywhere near done. He had 11.5 sacks and 25 quarterback hurries last year (according to the FO game charting data that we're about 98 percent done cleaning up).
