Steelers, Browns among large group to express interest in released J.J. Watt

The Houston Texans on Friday released star defensive end J.J. Watt, granting his request. Watt was drafted by the Texans in 2011 with the No. 11 pick and became the face of the franchise, winning three NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards from 2012 to ’15. He is one of three players to gain that award three times. “I have sat down with the McNair family and I have asked them for my release, and we have mutually agreed to part ways at this time,” Watt said in a video posted to Twitter. “I came here 10 years ago as a kid from […]

Brees, Saints pull away late for 21-9 playoff victory over Bears

Drew Brees will get to celebrate his 42nd birthday by preparing for a playoff game that will also feature the one active NFL quarterback older than him. Brees completed 28 of 39 passes for 265 yards, connecting with Michael Thomas and Latavius Murray for touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints overpowered the Chicago Bears 21-9 in an NFC wild-card game Sunday. The triumph for the Saints (13-4) and Brees, who turns 42 on Friday, sets up a divisional-round meeting next weekend in the Superdome with Tampa Bay and 43-year-old QB Tom Brady.

Green Bay Packers allowing 6,000 fans for divisional playoff game

The Green Bay Packers revealed Thursday that approximately 6,000 ticketed fans will be permitted to attend the team’s first playoff game, either Jan. 16 or 17 in the NFC divisional round. The Packers had not allowed fans at Lambeau Field during the regular season and allowed only about 500 employees, their families and selected frontline workers to attend over the final month of the campaign. The tickets will go to season-ticket holders who opted in over the summer. At the time, Packers president Mark Murphy said more than 80% of […]

CB Prince Amukamara has deal with Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals have an agreement in place to sign free-agent cornerback Prince Amukamara pending the results of his COVID-19 testing, a source told ESPN’s Dan Graziano. It’s not likely Amukamara, who lives in the Phoenix area, will join the team for this weekend’s match in New York versus the Jets, but he potentially could play in Arizona’s Week 6 game on Monday Night Football at the Dallas Cowboys. The veteran cornerback will give the Cardinals depth as Dre Kirkpatrick, whom the Cardinals’ signed on Aug. 23 in the aftermath of Robert Alford’s season-ending pec injury, deals with a calf injury. He has been limited in practice the […]

Tom Brady leads Tampa Bay Buccaneers to big comeback

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady overcame a first-half pick-six and a 17-point deficit to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers  38-31 on Sunday, giving him the fifth-largest comeback in his career. It also was the Bucs’ second-largest comeback in franchise history, behind a 21-point rally versus the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008. For the 43-year-old Brady, it was his biggest comeback since overcoming a 28-3 deficit in Super Bowl LI versus the Atlanta Falcons — a setting that was a far cry from the select group of 6,383 fans and family members who got their first glimpse of Brady in person this campaign. He finished 30-of-46 for 369 passing yards, […]

Chicago Bears’ Nick Foles to be starter QB, Tarik Cohen has torn ACL

Nick Foles will be the starter at quarterback for now on after he rallied the Chicago Bears to a comeback triumph over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday in relief of Mitchell Trubisky. The announcement was made by coach Matt Nagy, who also said tests confirmed that running back Tarik Cohen has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the campaign. Nagy benched Trubisky in favor of Foles with Chicago trailing by 16 points in the third quarter. Foles responded by throwing three second-half touchdown passes, including the game-winning 28-yard strike to wide receiver Anthony Miller just after the two-minute warning. Foles also had touchdown passes to Allen Robinson and Jimmy Graham. […]

New York Jets trade Jamal Adams to Seattle Seahawks

One of the Seahawks’ goals heading into 2020 was to improve a defense that didn’t live up to expectations last campaign, and on Saturday they made a big move to improve on that side of the ball, acquiring All-Pro and Pro-Bowl safety Jamal Adams in a trade with the New York Jets, pending physicals. To obtain one of the game’s top defensive players, the Seahawks are sending to the Jets first and third-round picks in next year’s draft, a first-rounder in 2022, and safety Bradley McDougald. The Jets are sending a 2022 fourth-round pick to Seattle in addition to Adams, […]

Bucs pass-rusher Shaq Barrett accepts franchise tender, files designation grievance

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have Shaquil Barrett in 2020, but it’s uncertain how much the team will pay him. Barrett informed the club he would accept the franchise tag Friday, but filed a grievance over the Bucs tagging him as a linebacker instead of a defensive end. Barrett, 27, has $2 million in reasons for filing that grievance, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. That’s how much extra money Barrett would have made had the Bucs designated him as a defensive end. Players who accept the franchise tag are paid based on the top-5 highest-paid players at their position. Franchised defensive ends are expected […]
