The NFL salary cap is set to hit a record high.
Former Missouri linebacker Michael Sam could soon become the NFL's first openly gay player. NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith says anonymous critics of Sam are "gutless".
For a chunk of the regular season, from the moment offensive lineman Jonathan Martin left the Miami Dolphins in late October, locker-room bullying was a toxic topic that rocked the NFL.
Jermaine Kearse smiled before the question was even finished.
When the Super Bowl ends, three complete seasons will have come and gone without testing for human growth hormone - even though the NFL and the players' union originally paved the way to check for that drug in August 2011.
Jonathan Martin's new attorney says the Miami Dolphins tackle endured harassment from teammates that went far beyond the traditional locker room hazing, including a malicious physical attack and daily vulgar comments.
In a culture that fosters conflict, Jonathan Martin sought to avoid it.
Some say Martin, a Stanford graduate who went about his business quietly, handled the situation well. But pro football is a macho world, and some players believe Martin should have responded more firmly.
Brandon Meriweather issued an apology by proxy Thursday, with the head of the NFL players' union releasing a statement saying that the Washington Redskins safety is "sorry" over comments made about targeting opponents' knees.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers say a third player has been diagnosed with MRSA, a staph infection that is resistant to many common antibiotics.
The NFL players union has set up a system to provide safe rides for its members.
So much for labor peace in the NFL.
Baltimore Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones is among those NFL players who want the league and the union to finally agree on a way to do blood testing for human growth hormone.
NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith says anonymous critics of Sam are "gutless".
"The manner in which the league has conducted this investigation has been in the manner that we believe is consistent and the right way to do it," Smith said.
