Well, here's a first. Michael Turk, a punter for the Arizona State Sun Devils, skipped his junior and senior seasons to enter the NFL draft. He hired agents. He was committed to pro football. Then he went undrafted. And then no team signed him after the draft. So Turk petitioned the NCAA for a special waiver to return to school, and shockingly, the NCAA agreed.

The Los Angeles Rams are the last team to introduce new uniforms this offseason. The blue and yellow call back to the classic Rams uniforms of the 80s and 90s, with modern touches like gradient numbers. The road "bone on bone" uniforms are interesting, especially since the Rams have gone back to yellow horns on the helmets.
