Pittsburgh Steelers: Stalwart veteran tight end Heath Miller has announced his retirement from the NFL.
- Author’s Take: Some guys just flat out play the game the right way. The league is worse for not having Heath Miller on the field anymore.
San Diego Chargers: There may still be a way to keep the Chargers in San Diego. The team has proposed a stadium initiative to the city that would tie a new facility in with an already proposed civic center in the downtown part of San Diego. However, many critics believe that this is just a publicity move that is certain to fail in a popular vote.
- Author’s Take: Ever since the Rams were awarded the LA gig, it has seemed as though San Diego has had some second thoughts on a plan to share their new stadium. I think this new proposal is legit and that team owner Dean Spanos just doesn’t want to be in the same building as Rams owner Stan Kroenke.
San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers re-signed a pair of important role players in tight end Garrett Celek and defensive tackle Quinton Dial. The team is hoping to avoid the disaster that was the 2015 offseason.
Tennessee Titans: The Titans have re-signed tight end Craig Stevens to a four-year extension.
Washington Redskins: The Redskins have confirmed that Robert Griffin III will not be returning to the team in 2016. The long-anticipated breakup is now just waiting on a date in order for the team to avoid contract penalties.
- Chiefs’ Take: Kansas City has become one of the favorite potential destinations for RGIII among sports writers and analysts. The move makes sense if you go on the assumption that the Chiefs view Alex Smith as most fans and media do…even though the actual evidence would suggest that’s not the case.
- Author’s Take: Griffin needs to go to a team that can name him the starter without potential backlash. Cleveland, Buffalo, Denver, and Philadelphia are really the only ones that come to mind for me. Bringing RGIII to KC would result in a rift between Alex Smith and the front office, and that would likely be felt throughout the locker room.
Well, that will do it for me, Addicts. Be sure to check back in next week for another round up of all the NFL news and rumors from around the league.
