SITE NEWS: Football Outsiders T-Shirts!

We've had a number of requests to bring back Football Outsiders t-shirts, and so we've got a brand new design from our friends at Cotton Bureau. Click this link and you can buy FO t-shirts in grey and black or a black FO hoodie. It's a LIMITED TIME sale, the shirts on are only available for a two-week period until August 30. In addition, we need at least a dozen people to buy t-shirts in order for any of them to be made. But we've gotten at least that many requests for shirts over the last couple years. If you're one of the person who's made one of those requests, check these shirts out!

The NFL Position That Everyone's Talking About In 2017

Michelle Bruton of OZY.com looks at an offensive tactic that teams around the league are stealing from Atlanta: the rise of the H-back. First made popular by Joe Gibbs' Washington teams in the 1980s, the H-back is similar to a tight end, but lines up just off the line of scrimmage or even in the backfield and often goes in motion.

Buffalo Trades Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby

Who says player-for-player trades never happen in the NFL? Buffalo shook up Friday afternoon by making a couple deals to revamp their receiving corps and secondary.

First, they dealt WR Sammy Watkins and a 2018 sixth-round pick to the LA Rams for CB E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-round pick.

Then, with a new surplus at corner and a deficit at receiver, they traded CB Ronald Darby to Philadelphia for WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick.

Ezekiel Elliott Suspended Six Games

I'm not even sure where to start with this. I'm all for punishing domestic violence, but players with much stronger evidence against them (i.e. Josh Brown) got much shorter suspensions. Also, we're talking about an incident from before Elliott's rookie year. How on earth did the NFL investigation drag on for over a year? Why is this suspension being announced now? Of course, Elliott can now appeal...

Dolphins Sign Jay Cutler

The Miami Dolphins have agreed to a deal with quarterback Jay Cutler. Per Adam Schefter, it's a one-year deal for $10 million, plus incentives.

The former Commodores, Broncos, and Bears signal-caller had been headed to the broadcast booth, but the Fins lured him into a reunion with Adam Gase, one of his offensive coordinators, in Chicago after Ryan Tannehill's non-contact knee injury. As yet, no announcement has been made about Tannehill's status for this season or which course of recovery he will choose.
