NFL News From Around the League.

New NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke with Rich Eisen on the NFL Network. He seems very young and energetic. I think he should be a great Commissioner. Of course the future Labor talks seem to be his biggest obstacle that he will face during his time as Commissioner. He did say that the NFL Network will become huge under him, and host a lot of regular games. I am glad I got Direct TV.

Maurice Clarett is at it again, I bet Denver Broncos are happy they released this criminal. He has been charged with carrying a concealed weapon and a traffic violation after a highway chase. Clarett was arrested early Wednesday after a highway chase that ended with police using Mace on him and finding four loaded guns in his sport utility vehicle, a police spokesman said.

Clarett Officers used Mace to subdue Clarett after a stun gun was ineffective because the former Fiesta Bowl star was wearing a bullet-resistant vest, Sgt. Michael Woods said.
"It took several officers to get him handcuffed," Woods said. "Even after he was placed in the paddy wagon, he was still kicking at the doors and being a problem for the officers."

They need to throw this guy away for life now, he is going to really hurt someone down the road. For a criminal to wear a bullet proof vest, shows he planned to have it out with the cops.

The New York Jets' future Hall of Famer Curtis Martin might be calling it quits. That would mean the NY Jets would have a new running back this season for the first time since 1997. Two sources close to Curtis Martin told the New York Daily News that the running back talked about retirement before deciding to give it a go for another season, and one of the sources told the newspaper "I'd be really shocked if he came back." This would be a sad, but happy day for the Jets fans, as a legend retires. Sad because the fans could not see him on the field anymore, but happy because of what he has done, and the fact that he would retire a Jets Player, after all these years playing for the Jets. We all know that retiring with the same team you played for all these years is hard to do in this day in age, due to free agency.

A Stroke could not keep Tedy Bruschi out of the NFL, but a broken wrist could. Well it will keep him out of preseason anyway.

Coach Bill Parcells, is tired of answering media questions about T.O.’s injury. Some are saying this is a new T.O. trick to keep him from practicing. Dallas training staff, who has been praised by Parcells in the past can’t find what is wrong with T.O.’s hamstring. T.O. is using outside staff to treat a hamstring injury that he claims he has. Parcells had this to say :If the player is telling you that he has something bothering him, then you have to give the player the benefit of the doubt," Parcells said Tuesday. "At some point in time it's going to be prohibitive. But that's not now. That shouldn't be the story today." Parcells is also ok with T.O. seeking outside help with the injury. Parcells onlu concern is keeping the media away from T.O.
