Redskins S Jackson banned indefinitely again The NFL suspended Redskins safety Tanard Jackson yet again for violating the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. The indefinite suspension, the second one he has received since 2012, will begin immediately the NFL announced.
Seven ex-NFL players object to settlement Seven retired players who played a total of 66 seasons in the NFL attacked the proposed settlement of concussion litigation on Wednesday, asserting that the deal "comes nowhere near being fair, adequate and reasonable."
McClain dealt to Dallas, unretires; Lee to IR The Dallas Cowboys completed a trade with the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday to acquire linebacker Rolando McClain, who will come out of retirement, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Bill Parcells would like the Cowboys to run the ball, control the clock and rely on their defense and special teams to win games much like they did a season ago. Unfortunately, with Julius Jones out and Eddie George's limited explosiveness, the Cowboys are simply adjusting their formula for success and relying on the right arm of QB Vinny Testaverde more than they would like.
The Redskins also would like to run the football better with backup QB Patrick Ramsey leading the way, but if RB Clinton Portis doesn't do a better job of protecting the football it simply won't be the option they hoped it would be. With so many personnel issues for both teams, the real matchup in this game is between two of the best coaches in NFL history, Parcells and Joe Gibbs, who are both trying to get their teams on track in a long and storied rivalry.
