Kansas City Chiefs cut Jerel Worthy from practice squad, add a guard

The Chiefs cut DT Jerel Worthy and signed G Jarrod Pughsley. The Kansas City Chiefs cut the most recognizable name on their practice squad, defensive tackle Jerel Worthy. This according to Tuesday's transactions report from the league. Worthy was a former second round pick by the Green Bay Packers just two years ago. The Chiefs added him to their practice squad earlier this year but never made the jump up to the active roster. It's an odd situation that a player can go from a big time school like Michigan State, get drafted in the second round and then be unable to hold onto a practice...

Bucs notes: Smith sees no QB controversy

Lions sign Jerome Couplin to practice squad

Jerome Couplin has returned to the Detroit Lions as a member of their practice squad. On Monday, the Detroit Lions released safety Jerome Couplin to make room for tight end Kellen Davis. On Tuesday, Couplin cleared waivers. And on Wednesday, the Lions brought back Couplin by signing him to their practice squad. Interestingly enough, Couplin was already in England and ready to practice when he was officially signed to the practice squad on Wednesday. This is an indication that the Lions' plan all along was to keep Couplin on their practice squad. Chances are there will be room for him on the...

Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning Could Put on MVP Duel for the Ages

Could an epic battle for NFL MVP conclude with a Packers vs. Broncos matchup in Super Bowl XLIX? To quote the great philosopher Terrell Owens, "Get your popcorn ready." No Owens is not making an NFL comeback.  Instead, the popcorn needs to be popped for what could be the most entertaining battle for NFL MVP of all time. This might sound like a bit of an overstatement, but think about it. J.J. Watt has been fantastic, but after seven weeks it is beginning to look like the 2014 MVP award will come down to either Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning or Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron...

Jared Allen not dwelling on reduced action

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen participated in fewer snaps on defense than key reserve Willie Young in Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins, but the five-time Pro Bowler doesn't believe reduced playing time for him is in the team's plans. "It's probably an aberration," Allen said, laughing. "They haven't told me I am on reduced playing time. We'll take it for that." Allen played in 46 of the club's 70 snaps against the Dolphins, while Young participated in 54 snaps.

TFD: Softer upcoming pass defenses mean its time for Vikings' Bridgewater to make his mark

All it takes these days is two bad games by a rookie quarterback to make us question whether he is going to be the right guy to lead a team for the next decade. We freely admit we have some concerns about Teddy Bridgewater at this point — most of them similar to what Patrick Reusse wrote recently, in that he doesn’t seem to do one thing, physically, great. Instead, Bridgewater will be relying on intangibles, which largely means football intelligence mixed with poise and presence. After three NFL starts, he’s not there yet — nor should he be. But we should also note this: those last...
