    Or they're pretty set at corner already and he wanted more playing time.

    Meh, Rowe over McCourty? People smarter than me, do they have similar skill sets or would they have not been competing for the same job?

    If it was a no from his end I'd expect several stories of NE showing interest to drive up demand elsewhere.

    McCourty turns 30 in August. That's old for a corner. Revis hasn't even turned 32 yet and he looks done, and he was obviously a way better player in his prime than JMac. Rowe doesn't turn 25 until October, so even if you like McCourty's odds to play better in 2017, there's no comparison in terms of long-term prognosis.

    Maybe he's just not interested in playing here.

    Reiss said there was mutual interest and that he thought JMC would end up on a contender after being exiled to Nashville but that Butler not being traded effectively put the kibosh on that.

    "I think there was definitely mutual interest," McCourty said on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football. "Me and Devin have never hid the fact that us playing together would be a dream come true. My mom kind of has hinted at that since we both got into the league. She knows it would be a lot easier only having to travel to one city during the season.

    "I think there was definitely mutual interest, but to be honest, the Patriots are kind of set at cornerback. They have a lot of talent in that room. There really wasn't room for me. Me and Dev talked about that and that's just the way of the league. I'm excited about the opportunity I have in Cleveland to work with those guys."

    Yeah, but it's hard not to think that he'd love Belichick's style. Remember that clip of Chad Johnson being shocked at how Belichick tore into Brady before the 2011 season reviewing the playoff loss to the Jets in 2010, Sherman would love that everyone actually is fair game.

    If they haven't won a Super Bowl since, why would anyone expect anything that has happened over the last couple of years to have brought them closure?

    Oh, you mean, making it to the Divisional Round of the playoffs doesn't make you feel better about almost winning the Super Bowl?

    So the Pats achieved no closure between 2007 and 2015? If Samuel holds on to the INT, if one of 5 guys chasing Manning manage to sack him, if Rodney Harrison just blasts Tyree? Oh, and we have two of these -- if Welker manages to catch the pass that would have netted a first down.

    Yep, these theatrical navel gazers are the only ones to lose rings in heartbreaking and frustrating ways.

    True, the only difference I see is that the lamentations are coming from inside the Seahawks ... as opposed to from a Patriots message board

    Dirk Koetter apologizes for the Bucs social media team trolling the Falcons. I have to admit it's pretty good.

    Ravens just tweeted that Dennis Pitta re-injured his hip in OTAs today. Jason LaCanfora followed up to say that the team is "very concerned." That would be a huge blow for Baltimore and really terrible luck for Pitta who just can't stay healthy.

    Damn. His play declined precipitously last season but he's always been a solid, if unspectacular, performer. I'd want the Pats to look at him if they weren't already loaded at WR.

    That wound up being a pretty expensive deal, when you add in the 2 draft picks they lost for tampering when signing him

    No doubt there will be more news tomorrow, but the media is essentially predicting retirement.

    No harm in kicking the tires on Orr. He's an unrestricted free agent and had been the Ravens leading tackler.

    Any idea on the state of his back? None of the articles I've read have actually addressed whether he had surgery and is fixed, or has just said "fuck it, I'm okay being paralyzed"

    Friday before the July 4th weekend. Commence Goodell concussion data dump? Maybe some drug test fails? Peyton Manning gets a Presidential pardon? Anything can happen.

    He is lying about the process of his retirement, and therefore almost certainly about his condition.

    No, I don't want a paralyzed-for-life guy on my team under my watch. Pass, thank you very much.

    I guess this is where I differ than most other people. He clearly is well aware of what his physical situation is. If something horrific were to happen, that is a very clear choice that he has made. Just like many other things in life, I don't need to agree with his decision to respect it. He's not a child and he's aware of the ramifications.

    The following quote from the article seems to be an assumption.

    Is it completely unbelievable that Orr got feedback from one doctor that he trusted telling him not to play and then retired without getting a second opinion? I certainly find it hard to say that he lied about the process of his retirement based solely on this type of reporting.

    I have to hope that whichever doctor said he could play, isn't the Gilbert Mudge equivalent of neck doctors. (Even if it is the Ravens that we're talking about)

    I think he raises an excellent point in that the NFL has the weakest union of the major professional sports leagues in the US to be playing without guaranteed contracts. Especially given that its the most dangerous sports health-wise. His other point about players negotiating on their own without agents is...a lot less smart.

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, the league announced Friday.

    Floyd, then with the Cardinals, was arrested for extreme DUI in Scottsdale, Arizona, in December when he was found asleep at the wheel of his vehicle. He had a blood alcohol level of .217 when he was arrested, and on Feb. 17 he was sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days under house arrest

    Panthers fired their GM. They had made playoffs 3 straight years, went 17-2 and to the Super Bowl 18 months ago. Wow. This would be like Atlanta firing Dimitroff next summer

    Judging by the twitter storm of ex-players celebrating it, it seems like this was a personality thing. He did not appear to be well liked.

    Gettleman was pretty notorious for having a "gruff" personality. Ultimately, Jerry grew tired of it. Once you piss ol' Jerry off, you're done. Ask his sons.

    Some of those ex-players are gone because Gettleman inherited an awful cap situation and had to let some of those guys walk. The timing is bizarre after they let their in-house replacement go to Buffalo fairly recently. There has to be more to this.

    Some have it that he was the fall guy for Norman. Which, if true, is rich. Because no one can persuade me that Richardson was not fully on board with the hard-assing of Norman, including the exquisite timing of the removal of the tag and his release. That was classic Richardson.
