I'm not going to pretend to be any kind of expert on the legal issues involved here, but it certainly makes the league look better to no longer claim its ridiculous tax-exempt status. Obviously a big gain here is that the league no longer has to publicly disclose the salary of its top executives including Roger Goodell. Gain for the league, that is. Not necessarily a gain for us, the public.

Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan has solidified his position as one of the great draft busts in NFL history. He had only three sacks in his first two years but won't get to turn things around because he's now earned a one-year suspension for violating the NFL drug policy. Jordan is one of the great successful calls in SackSEER history. In fact, SackSEER actually overprojected him based on his draft position.

The decision to start a rookie quarterback as the rule rather than the exception confounds me.

The NFL has suspended Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy 10 games without pay to start the 2015 season. Following his domestic violence arrest last season. Though all charges in the case were dropped after Hardy's alleged victim stopped cooperating with police, the NFL's investigation "determined that there was sufficient credible evidence that Hardy engaged in conduct that violated NFL policies in multiple respects and with aggravating circumstances," according to the league's release on the subject.
