Who says the NFL and the NFLPA don’t get along? The NFLPA is holding its annual Rookie Premiere event in Los Angeles on Friday, with recent draft picks from all 32 teams on hand – mainly to have photos taken for football cards. The NFLPA has been kind enough to allow NFL Network and NFL.com cameras into the event,

Surprise, surprise, the Bills and Lions didn’t make the playoffs during the decade. In fact, the last playoff appearance for each franchise was back in 1999.

Depending on who you believe, Kyle Orton is either in front of the line to be the Denver Broncos starting quarterback, or on the trading block. Or maybe even both.

It’s not a stretch to think that every team welcome the addition of CB Nnamdi Asomugha in free agency. As one of the NFL’s few elite cornerbacks, who happens to be in his prime, Asomugha is the gem of a free agent market that only builds in anticipation during the locked-out offseason.

Episode 2 of the Dave Dameshek Football Program is a real hoot. The gang discusses the NBA playoffs, the most overrated players in the NFL, and who has the best movie career. Will you give it a listen?

An NFL contingent, along with a group from the Wounded Warrior Project, reached Uhuru Peak, the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, on Wednesday. Former Titans coach Jeff Fisher and former players Tedy Bruschi and Chad Lewis began the climb — intended to raise awareness for Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors — on May 13.

Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco could be on the move this offseason, but his fantasy value isn’t likely to increase.

What if Bills receiver Stevie Johnson didn’t drop that should-have-been game-winning TD pass in overtime against the Steelers last season? Perhaps Pittsburgh wouldn’t have won the AFC North and advanced to the Super Bowl.

With Pittsburgh losing to Green Bay in Super Bowl XLV — No. 19 in our list of the top 20 games of 2010 — it only creates more debate whether to rank the Steelers as the best team this millennium.

If you’re putting a board together of all the quarterbacks thought to be available in free agency or via a trade this offseason, I think the first person every team is looking at is Kevin Kolb.

Jaguars Pro Bowl TE Marcedes Lewis took time out during a visit to the NFL Network studios to talk about his offseason training, what it will take for the Jaguars to win their division and why he’s the best tight end in football.

I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a player come from the college game to the pro game and appear like there was no adjustment the way Ndamukong Suh did as a rookie last season.
