Cowboys DE Randy Gregory Suspended Again

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory Suspended Again

So it turn out that Randy Gregory's positive drug test at the 2015 combine was a red flag after all.

Gregory, the Cowboys' second-round draft choice that year, was suspended indefinitely by the NFL today for violating the league's substance abuse policy. It is the fourth suspension going into what would be his fifth NFL season, the last year of his rookie deal. Gregory has been suspended for 30 games in his career; he has played 28, with one start. He did have 6.0 sacks in 14 games last year, but likely won't be doing much to follow that up in 2019.

Raiders, Coliseum Authority Reach Agreement for 2019

Change of plans, kids. It looks like your Oakland Raiders are going to stay in Oakland in 2019 as your Oakland Raiders. There's also a team option in the deal for 2020 in case the Raiders' new stadium in Las Vegas is not yet ready as planned.

Ravens Trade Joe Flacco to Denver

Ravens Trade Joe Flacco to Denver

The Ravens have agreed in principle on a deal to trade Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos. Compensation is as yet unknown but will likely be a mid-round pick. The king of failed completions heads to Denver, and Case Keenum will likely be cut after just one season with the Broncos. This is an upgrade on throwing the deep ball, but is it an upgrade in any other way? Flacco last year was 16th in passing DVOA, which is nice but was also just half a season and was much better than his last three seasons.He had ranked 26th or lower in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

AAF Kicks Off Without Kickoffs

AAF Kicks Off Without Kickoffs

Here's a good primer from the AP on the rule changes in the new Alliance of American Football which starts this coming weekend. Kickoffs are gone, but there's an opportunity to "onside kick" by converting fourth-and-12 from the 28. However, you're only allowed to try this if you are down 17 points, or in the final five minutes of the game. There's also a "SkyJudge" official whose job is to monitor the broadcast and correct egregious errors made by the officials on the field.
