NFL | Tony Gonzalez admits he wants a ring

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 18:35:28 -0700

Retired TE Tony Gonzalez said it would be tempting to return later in the season if a Super Bowl contender came calling for his services. "But I'd be a mercenary to come in and get a Super Bowl ring, play with a team for, what, six, seven weeks," Gonzalez said. "And even if I got the ring, it wouldn't be the same as going through the fight with the team from the beginning to the end. I don't think that will happen. The temptation will be there, but I'm 100- percent happy with my decision."

NFL | Four weeks of preseason games likely to remain

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 09:41:25 -0700

In recent years, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has expressed the desire to improve the quality of preseason games, possibly by eliminating two contests. Some team owners have suggested the removal of two games in favor of adding a pair of postseason games. However, the NFL front office is backing away from the removal of preseason games, because the interest in reduction of games has waned among team owners.

New York Giants owner John Mara said he feels four games are necessarily to prepare Giants players. The removal of preseason games and addition of playoff matchups are not necessarily linked, according to Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy. Murphy added that he believes expanded playoffs will go into effect in 2015.

NFL | League will continue to strictly enforce illegal contact calls

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 09:30:51 -0700

NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said the league will continue to strictly enforce illegal contact calls, labeling it a "point of emphasis." Blandino noted 70 to 75 percent of calls from teams around the league during the preseason asked why officials were not calling more fouls for illegal contact.

Fantasy Tip: From a fantasy perspective, this only continues to uphold the NFL's desire to make the game as wide open and pass-happy as possible. Chalk one up for quarterbacks and wide receivers.
