    The Texans have signed Brian Cushing to a six-year contract extension worth $55.6 million with $21 million guaranteed. This deal certainly will get the attention of Brian Orakpo and his agent. Cushing and Orakpo are, as they say in the contract negotiation biz, close comparables. They were drafted two spots apart in 2009 with Orakpo…

    Barry Cofield broke his right hand against the Steelers two weeks ago and to practice on Monday he needed some protection for it. That’s not a boxing glove, that’s a cast and some padding to keep the hand protected on the field. When he was asked if he felt any pain, he gave a non-response…

    White-vs.-Bills

    On Monday we asked Mike Shanahan why the Redskins kept Pat White on the 53-man roster and his answer seemed, well, incomplete. “Like I said all along, we’re trying to keep the top 53 players and I thought Pat was one of the top 53 players,” he said. Perhaps he was one of the best…

    We don’t know how much of an effect Chip Kelly’s new scheme will have on the Eagles’ offense. It could boom, it could bust. But one advantage Kelly will have over what Andy Reid last year is a solid pair of bookend tackles. Jason Peters, one of the best in the game, returns at left…

    When Chip Kelly took over as the Eagles’ head coach he did one thing that Mike Shanahan did when he took the reigns in Washington. He junked the 4-3 defensive scheme in favor of the 3-4. It is one of those moves that is designed to pay off in the long run but may create…
