So the Redskins signed Ronald Darby, the market for Bashaud Breeland is quickly drying up and it appears the Chiefs are the only team in real contact with him, this may workout where the Chiefs get most of their bowl team back.
• There will be a total of three wild-card teams per conference, up from two.
• The No. 2 seed in each conference will host the new No. 7 seed in the wild-card round, meaning that only the No. 1 seeds will have first-round byes.
Wild Card round will be a series of tripleheaders per conference. CBS and NBC get the extra games.
What I don't like is rewarding undeserving, often garbage 7-seeds with playoff berths (last year it would have been the 8-8 Steelers, losers of three straight, and the underperforming 9-7 Rams), but what I do like is giving only one team a bye, thus making the top seed in each conference worth its weight in gold. And what I REALLY like is a tripleheader of playoff football.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the new teams because a lot of potential #7 seeds can be really mediocre or even outright bad teams. But on the other hand, it makes the #1 seed all the more desirable, as I think a first round bye is way more advantageous to teams than home field advantage outside of teams like Seattle and Kansas City.

I personally think the bye gives too big of an advantage in Football. Although it's an advantage you earn by owning the regular season. I'm ok with this new rule but I fully expect it to expand to a full 16 teams after a couple years.
The Cowboys signed Aldon Smith. If he could get right and have even a single productive season I’d be so happy for him. Easy Hall of Fame talent wiped out by personal demons.
This is about his 3rd chance, hopefully he doesn't f*** it up
Highly talented man who can't stay right
Glazer says his transformation has been amazing. I really hope it’s true. This kid nearly broke the sack record in his second season. One of the most explosive and exciting players I had ever watched before his demons got him. Loved the kid.
