NFL will reportedly no longer use color rush uniforms on Thursday Night Football


The NFL’s color rush uniforms will no longer cause a headache for players and fans.

According to Bill Wanger, executive vice president of programming, research and content strategy for Fox Sports, the color rush uniforms are coming to an end on “Thursday Night Football.”

Sam missed most of the 2016 season with a foot injury, but he bounced back last year with 127 tackles and 9.5 tackles for loss. The 6-2, 240-pound linebacker would be a nice late-round addition.

The Packers haven’t entered a draft the year after missing a postseason since 2008, the aftermath of Rodgers’ first season as starter. That draft landed Pro Bowlers in Jordy Nelson and Josh Sitton, along with tight end Jermichael Finley. Those pieces helped Rodgers’ career take off. Now, the Packers need to find some new pieces to give Rodgers a few more Super Bowl shots.

Foster delivered on the field, ranking second on the team with 72 tackles in 10 games as a rookie and looking like a key part of San Francisco’s defensive future.

Foster then was charged in January in Alabama with second-degree marijuana possession before the incident in February that led to the most recent charges.

The NFL has said it is looking into possible discipline for Foster for both infractions.

No. 19: Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama or D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland or Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU

The Cowboys trust Dak Prescott to both push the ball downfield and show touch on shorter, safer throws. But the QB needs some of that burden eased with either a young wideout who can run well after the catch or a big-bodied No. 1 who can replace Bryant.seahawks_023

ESPN’s McShay: Hernandez, Nick Chubb, Holmes would earn Lions ‘A’


How can the Lions ace the NFL Draft? ESPN’s Todd McShay offers a way for the Lions to get off to a strong start in his three-round mock draft posted Tuesday (pay site).

The ESPN draft analyst cautions this isn’t a traditional mock draft, based on league rumblings, but rather who he’d pick for each team in order to merit an “A” for the first three rounds of the April 26-28 draft.

For the Lions, it starts with massive UTEP guard Will Hernandez at No. 20, followed by Georgia running back Nick Chubb in Round 2 (No. 51), and Ohio State defensive end Jalyn Holmes in the third round (No. 82).

McShay slots Michigan defensive tackle Maurice Hurst with the Atlanta Falcons at No. 26, writing “assuming his medical checks out, Hurst would be a nice fit in Atlanta to help fill some snaps the Falcons lost with Dontari Poe’s departure.”

It’s unclear if Wentz will be available to play in the preseason, though his potential presence in a game against the Patriots would certainly add more intrigue to a marquee matchup between arguably the two best teams in the NFL.

After losing to the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game, the Minnesota Vikings will get their first look at quarterback Kirk Cousins in a Week 1 road matchup against the Denver Broncos, who signed Case Keenum away from Minnesota.

Cousins joined the reigning NFC North champions after signing a historic fully guaranteed $84 million deal in March.
