The Taxing World of NFL Player Finances

Fascinating article from The MMQB about the complicated world of tax filing for NFL players. They owe state taxes based on where they play and practice, not where they live, which means filing a number of different state returns each year. It also means that playing teams in tax-free states can dramatically change a player's net income, to the point where it makes sense to specifically spend the bye week in a tax-free state.

Patriots Deal Brandin Cooks to Rams

A shocking NFL trade. As first announced by Adam Schefter on Twitter, the Patriots are dealing Brandin Cooks -- after only one year in New England -- plus a fourth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams for the Rams' first-round pick (23rd overall) and a sixth-round pick. Cooks will fill the Sammy Watkins role in the Rams offense, opening up space underneath for Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. The Patriots essentially rented Cooks for one year and used that year to upgrade from the 32nd pick in 2017 to the 23rd pick in 2018.

NFL Outlaws Lowering Head to Initiate Contact

Let's have some rule changes! The NFL is always tweaking the product, but we've got a couple of big ones this year. One of them announced today is this: "It is a foul if a player lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent. The player may be disqualified. Applies to any player anywhere on the field." That means this isn't just a headhunting rule... it also applies to ballcarriers lowering their heads to try to get tough yards.
