NFL fantasy football: A.J. Green the next Megatron?

Can Cincinnati Bengals wideout A.J. Green become the next Calvin Johnson both on the field and in fantasy football?

My story: What Megatron taught Bengals WR A.J. Green during their summer workouts

They went to rival schools. And even if they didn’t play on the same field, the ties still run deep. Calvin Johnson was a star at Georgia Tech, an All-American who would go on to become the No. 2 pick of the draft. A.J. Green was a star at Georgia, an All-SEC receiver who would be the No. 4 pick of the draft. And this summer… They trained together? It’s true. And they did it at Georgia Tech, joining a group of more than 20 NFL players there. It was a pretty good deal, with Megatron taking Green under his wing. There was just one thing: Green couldn’t wear Georgia gear. “But I can live with that if I get […]

The conundrum with Bears LB Brian Urlacher and his curious knee injury…

The Chicago Bears have a potential problem with linebacker Brian Urlacher. The face of their defense, the franchise stalwart, the best player on the field when healthy — he’s been sidelined for most of camp with a left knee injury.

My story: While the Jets (and others) pine away for a tackle, Jeff Otah is working his way back

The Jets struggles at offensive tackle are well-documented, and anyone who checked out Wayne Hunter on Saturday night can attest. They have a problem… one they tried to fix. The Jets dealt for former Panthers first-rounder Jeff Otah, then saw the trade nullified when he didn’t pass a physical. Soon, Otah was sent back to Carolina, and released. It wasn’t his best week. It also wasn’t the end. Otah got in his car and drove to Cleveland to work out at the O-Line Academy run by LeCharles Bentley. The goal is to make it back this season, in shape, and ready to roll. It may not be by Week 1, but at some point. On, Bentley clued us in […]
