Lawyers representing unsigned quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid released the following statement on Friday afternoon concerning their clients' collusion lawsuit against the NFL:
The Patriots won another Super Bowl. The Rams led the league in wins and nearly brought a championship to Los Angeles. The Chiefs had the MVP. But it's the Indianapolis Colts who dominated our year-end awards, as voted on by you, the readers
The NFL's highest-scoring season ever ends with a whimper, not a bang. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick win their sixth rings, Julian Edelman wins the MVP, and Wade Phillips wins respect, but the Rams offense fails to show up.
As you may have heard, the L.A. Rams had 5.49 adjusted line yards per carry this season, the most for any offense we have ever recorded. Josh Hermsmeyer, however, thinks that says less about the Rams' offensive line and more about the coaching abilities of Sean McVay.

Justis Mosqueda of Optimum Scouting looked at New England's roster and finds they have invested heavily in what he calls mid-level veterans -- players with at least five years of experience with cap hits ranging from $1 million to $6 million per season. The Patriots have 19 such players, most of any playoff team, nearly double the average of the 12 teams in the postseason, and nearly four times as many as their opponents in the Super Bowl, the L.A. Rams.

Steve Fainaru and Mark Fainaru-Wada at ESPN.com have looked at a growing threat to all levels of football: many insurance companies have stopped offering coverage for the sport, from the NFL on down to Pop Warner leagues.
"People say football will never go away, but if we can't get insurance, it will." -- Jon Butler, Pop Warner's executive director.
