How Sanjay Lal could prevent Ezekiel Elliott from being the next Le’Veon Bell

In the wake of the drama surrounding Le’Veon Bell, some are getting worried about Zeke’s future. The deadline came and passed, and four players around the NFL got locked into their franchise tags after failing to come to terms on contract extensions with their teams. One of those was the Cowboys’ DeMarcus Lawrence, but the more high-profile situation was that of Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell. Bell, who is among the elite running backs in the NFL today, turned down a contract offer from the Steelers that was reportedly worth $70 million over five years. According to the...

Relax, Cowboys fans: Why last year doesn’t matter in the NFL and why it’s okay to be optimistic about 2018

Why you’re allowed to be optimistic about the Cowboys’ playoff chances this season. Anything can happen in the NFL. Every new NFL season is always a new chance for teams that fell short of the playoffs the season before.

Fact is, the ‘competitive balance’ in the league gives each team hope of finishing...
