  • Drew Brees Done at NBC After One Season as NFL Analyst

    Legendary NFL quarterback Drew Brees will not return to NBC after just one season as a studio and game analyst, according to sources. The decision seemed mutual as Brees preferred doing games over the “Football Night in America” studio show, and NBC didn’t have many NFL games to offer him. NBC soured on Brees’ potential after originally believing he could develop into the heir apparent to Cris Collinsworth on “Sunday Night Football” games. On the air, Brees, 43, had an up and down rookie season that was highlighted by a poor performance in his biggest broadcast of the year, the...

    The Carolina Panthers have been silent about their unfinished headquarters development, and a York County councilman told Charlotte Business Journal that he thinks the team has permanently abandoned the project. Tepper Sports and Entertainment, the Panthers’ parent company, paused work on the 240-acre development nearly one month ago due to Rock Hill’s failure to distribute $225 million worth of bonds for infrastructure improvements. “This is going to be a stain on our name for other businesses,” councilman Bump Roddey said, acknowledging that the city didn’t keep its end of the bargain. Roddey believes the Panthers will seek to recover their...

My parents have been together for 36, 37 years now and it’s a beautiful thing,” Newton said, according to Mediaite. “I grew up in a three-parent household. My mom, my father, and my grandmother. And I knew what a woman was, not a bad xxxxx.” SNIP “A bad xxxxx is a person who is just, you know, ‘Girl, I’m a bad xxxxx, I’m doing this, I’m doing that.

    Former NFL quarterback and original anthem protester Colin Kaepernick compared the NFL Combine process to a slave auction in Netflix documentary series chronicling his life experiences. In the series Colin In Black & White, which Kaepernick narrates, he appears in a scene where he talks about NFL prospects being “poked, prodded, and examined” for defects before the NFL Draft. The players at the “combine” then leave the NFL field and enter a mid-1800’s slave auction where white landowners examine slaves for purchase. In the scene, Kaepernick says this is how “they” establish a “power dynamic.” The scene closes with the...

    It’s important to note, as always, that Kaepernick is not a hero. The former 49ers QB wore pig socks, compared cops to slave catchers, claimed they can murder people with impunity and get paid leave, didn’t stand for the anthem and praised Fidel Castro.

    For well over a year, the public has known about Brett Favre receiving $1.1 million in Mississippi welfare funds for apparent no-show appearances, which he has since paid back. Now, a new report from Mississippi Today has more details that tie Favre to potential political corruption in Mississippi. Favre, who played collegiately at Southern Miss, was linked on Monday to a scandal involving former Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant. Mississippi Today reported connections between Favre, a drug company he invested in, public welfare funds, and Bryant. The hall of fame QB reportedly hoped to make a significant amount of money from...

    The NFL will require every team to hire a minority or female offensive assistant coach for the 2022 season in an effort to ensure more opportunities for diverse candidates. The policy was adopted by NFL owners during their annual meeting on March 28 and requires all 32 NFL teams to hire an offensive assistant coach who is “a female or a member of an ethnic or racial minority,” regardless of whether or not the team already has a coach who satisfies those requirements among their staff. It is unclear exactly when the policy goes into effect.

    The NFL believes it has a problem with having too few minority coaches among its ranks. So, they’ve decided to solve this problem by ordering each team to hire a “diverse person” to their offensive coaching staff. The league informed teams of the new requirement in a memo sent Monday afternoon. “All NFL teams will be required to have a “diverse person (female or a member of an ethnic or racial minority)” on staff as an offensive assistant in 2022,” Dallas Morning News reporter Michael Gehlken wrote. “This position will be funded, in part, by a stipend from league office....

    Longtime NFL official Wayne Mackie died unexpectedly Thursday night in Florida. He was 62. Mackie, a Brooklyn native and Colgate graduate, was described by those who knew him as a “New Yorker through and through.” He worked a 20-year career at New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development, serving as director of operations and inspecting homes to make sure they met residential code. After officiating college football and amateur basketball, Mackie entered the NFL as a head linesman in 2007 and quickly graded out among the best of his peers. Mackie’s consistency over a 10-year on-field career was...

    Former NFL quarterback turned social justice grifter Colin Kaepernick compared playing professional football to slavery. He even had a Netflix special in which he invoked the slavery label across the entire National Football League with team owners and coaches being the slavedrivers. One would think that after such a traumatic experience, the last place he’d ever want to work again would be in the NFL. One who thought that would be wrong. “For The past 5 years I’ve been working out and staying ready in case an opportunity to play presented itself. I’m really grateful to my trainer, who I’ve...

    Colin Kaepernick is seeking receivers to catch his passes and a team to sign him. Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance following the 2012 season, last played in the NFL in 2016, the same year he started kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice. On Sunday, he wrote on Twitter: “For The past 5 years I’ve been working out and staying ready in case an opportunity to play presented itself. I’m really grateful to my trainer, who I’ve been throwing to all this time. But man, do I miss throwing to professional...

    National anthem protester and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted a video to Twitter showing him training with the caption “still working.” In the video, the woke activist performs a quarterback drill ending with a pass to an unseen receiver. According to ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter, a source said Kaepernick is “in the best shape of his life. He wants to play. He’s ready to play. He would be a great fit for teams with QB vacancies to fill who want to win a Super Bowl.” The timing of the video is also conspicuous, considering it comes only six...

    Atlanta Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley has been suspended for at least the 2022 season after gambling on games in 2021. The NFL released a statement Monday announcing his suspension, saying he gambled on games over a five-day stretch in November 2021 when he was on the non-football injury list to address his mental health. Ridley stepped away from football on Halloween, saying he needed to get his personal life in order. In a series of tweets Monday after the suspension was announced, Ridley said he bet $1,500 total and that "I don't have a gambling problem." He also tweeted that...

Fans shared their condolences on social media. Bobby Carpenter, former NFL linebacker for teams like...
