Happy Red Friday, Addicts!

As we get ready for another exciting (or completely demoralizing) Chiefs matchup, here is a recap of all the NFL news and rumors from the past week.  Injuries dominate the headlines again, but we’ve got some interesting stadium news, as well as another example of how the Saints have been playing way too much Madden!

So let’s get to it…

Atlanta Falcons: After having signed offensive tackle Jake Long last week, the Falcons have moved on from Tyler Polumbus.  The Falcons have been looking to upgrade their offensive line for a while.

Baltimore Ravens: Ravens first round draft pick, Breshad Perriman, will miss the entire season after having surgery on his knee.  The move is a big blow to the Ravens who have struggled to find any offense outside of veteran wide receiver Steve Smith.

Carolina Panthers:  The Panthers have traded a conditional 2016 draft pick for defensive end Jared Allen from Chicago.  Allen will fill the role vacated by Charles Johnson who is injured.

Chicago Bears:  The Bears are in the midst of a complete roster overhaul as they have made a pair of big trades, sending Jared Allen and Jon Bostic to other teams.  The Bears are off to a bad start and don’t figure to be competitive this year, but head coach John Fox said the moves were more about scheme fit.

Cincinnati Bengals:  The Bengals have signed veteran offensive lineman Andre Whitworth to a one-year extension.  The surprising part of this move is that it was only a one-year extension for a player that has been solid for them for a long time.

Cleveland Browns:  The Browns have finally parted ways with offensive line coach Andy Moeller, who is in the middle of a domestic abuse case.  To replace him, Cleveland has hired Paul Dunn who has been an offensive line coach with a number of teams.
