    Getty Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams. It may still be coming as a surprise to some but Las Vegas Raiders know just how good Hunter Renfrow is. The third-year wide receiver does nothing but make big plays for the team. On Sunday, the Raiders had a playoff berth on the line against the Los Angeles Chargers. Just as he’s done all season, Renfrow stepped up when the team needed him. He only caught four passes for 13 yards but two of those catches went for touchdowns. The first touchdown was particularly impressive when he put Chargers cornerback Michael Davis in a blender with an epic route.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Antonio Brown has not been a particularly sympathetic figure over the past seven days. That is, to everybody but his own lawyer. Brown’s lawyer, Sean Burstyn, fired off eight tweets on Sunday morning, insisting that his client was improperly treated by the Buccaneers following Brown’s midgame departure from the team. Burstyn accused the Buccaneers of concocting a “bogus scheme to engineer a way to cut AB” by demanding that he see a specific surgeon for evaluation. According to Burstyn, Brown’s camp was in contact with the doctor about setting up a time that worked for both parties when the team announced the formal release of Brown. “Knowing they can’t stand by Bruce Arians’ decision to cut AB for refusing to play through an injury, the Bucs formally claim to have fired AB for refusing to show up to a doctor’s appointment,” Burstyn tweeted. “But that’s misleading because the appt was being rescheduled to later the same day.” Burstyn said the Buccaneers were “unusually perverse” to use a doctor as a pawn. “The Bucs...

    Antonio Brown became the ultimate distraction for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at an inopportune time, but according to Fox Sports host Shannon Sharpe, the banished wide receiver is getting an unwarranted pass. “A lot of people are giving him a pass because he’s Black. Let’s be all the way real,” Sharpe claimed defiantly on Undisputed. “None of the Black Buccaneer players can come out and say what [Bruce Arians] said is true. Because then they’re gonna get labeled an Uncle Tom. They’re gonna get called a coon. Because now ‘oh you’re a slave to the White man,’ but I don’t care.” Sunday afternoon, Brown’s tenure with Tampa came to an end when he stripped his uniform off and paraded into the locker room during the third quarter of their game against the New York Jets. According to Brown, he left the field because he was injured. According to the Bucs and their head coach Bruce Arians, Brown’s outburst was over a lack of targets.

    CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson receiver Justyn Ross made it official Thursday, giving up his final college season to enter the NFL draft. Ross, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound junior from Phenix City, Alabama, was the Tigers’ leading receiver his final two seasons. He finished his career with 158 catches for 2,379 yards and 20 touchdowns. Ross posted his decision on social media, saying he was foregoing his final year of college eligibility to pursue “my lifelong dream of playing in the NFL.” Ross missed the 2020 season after undergoing spinal surgery to correct a congenital fusion condition in his neck. He was cleared to return this past summer and played in 10 games before a foot injury ended his season.

His most memorable performance was in the 44-16 victory over Alabama to capture the national title...
    Mandatory Credit: Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports As the Atlanta Falcons and Calvin Ridley possibly move toward parting ways, these five teams should be preparing an offseason trade offer. After eventually trading Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans last offseason, the Atlanta Falcons seem to be going down a similar road with another star wide receiver. During a recent appearance with Dukes and Bell on 92.9 The Game in Atlanta, NFL Network’s Steve Wyche talked about Calvin Ridley’s future in Atlanta. Ridley last played this season on Oct. 24, and then he took a break to deal address his mental. It was actually his second time stepping away to take care of his mental health, as he missed the Falcons’ game in London against the New York Jets a few weeks before that. He was technically able to be activated in November. But Falcons’ head coach Arthur Smith has had no news to offer, and it became inevitable Ridley would not play again this season.

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams explicitly states how young wide receivers can get better. Davante Adams did not beat around the bush, as the super talented Green Bay Packers wide receiver told all the young wide receivers in the game how to get better: Go run full-speed routes. “We play football. We don’t go put a bunch of drills on Instagram and look cool,” Adams on what he tells young receivers. In a day and age where many up-and-coming wide receivers in the NFL are quick to document all their drills on various social media accounts, Adams is incredibly old school on his never-ending quest to get better. The only way to get better at football is to play football, or closely simulate it. The best thing a receiver can do is run routes at full speed, which is what Adams has suggested. This is how Adams went from a second-round pick out of Fresno State to arguably the best wide receiver in all of football over the course of seven seasons. This is an epic Davante Adams quote...

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers just shed one diva wide receiver, but according to Fox Sports host Skip Bayless, the best replacement is an even older diva wide receiver. On Sunday, NFL star Antonio Brown quit the Bucs by stripping his uniform off and parading into the locker room during the third quarter of their game against the New York Jets. It was the latest incident and the final straw in Tampa for Brown, whose career has been marred by self-inflicted scandals on and off the field. Although he’s still a talent, moving on from the 33-year-old wideout was a necessary course of action for the Bucs, who announced Brown was no longer with the team immediately after the game. As Tom Brady pursues his eighth Super Bowl championship, rumors are swarming about who should take Brown’s place and 48-year-old wide receiver Terrell Owens recently stepped up to offer his services. Even though Owens proved to be a headache for numerous NFL locker rooms during his career, Bayless believes he could be a fit in Tampa. “I believe he is in...

However, another AFC team, the Cincinnati Bengals, is in Schlereth’s cross-hairs this time around Tensions between Bengals’ nation and the three-time Super Bowl champion began after comments Schlereth made on April 30 on The Pat McAfee Show. There, Schlereth criticized Cincinnati for drafting another wide receiver in the first round, Ja’Marr Chase, with the fifth overall pick, instead of offensive line help after Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending knee injury in 2020. “Your quarterback essentially got his leg amputated on the field; they had to sew it back on, but what’s going to help you is a wide receiver? Another weapon? When you couldn’t protect your quarterback?” Schlereth said. “Oh, by the way, last time I checked, [Tyler] Boyd and [Tee] Higgins both had 1,000 yards receiving, but we’re going to add another wide...

    Antonio Brown’s topless meltdown has many people questioning if the NFL star should seek mental health assistance. But Fox NFL analyst Terry Bradshaw offered a ruthlessly blunt suggestion for the polarizing wide receiver. During the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game against the New York Jets, Brown had a stunning tirade on the sideline. Late in the third quarter, the polarizing wide receiver stripped off his uniform, waved to the crowd, and paraded into the locker room while the game was still in progress. “They need to put him in a straitjacket and take him straight to some hospital and get him analyzed,” Bradshaw said on Fox with a laugh. “It’s crazy!” “Let’s not speculate,” Michael Strahan added, before he too began to mock Brown by removing his suit jacket and storming off-set. After the game, Bucs quarterback Tom Brady was much more sympathetic toward Brown than Bradshaw and Strahan were. “That’s obviously a difficult situation,” Brady said postgame. “We all love him and care about him deeply…I think everyone should be compassionate and empathetic toward some very difficult things.” Monday afternoon,...

Brown walked off the field in the middle of the team’s game against the New York Jets after he took off his equipment.

Shortly after this update, Arians told the media during a press conference that Brown never told the coaches that he was hurt. Additionally, Arians says that Brown left the field on his own.

During his college years, Brown earned All-American honors in 2008 and '09 as a punt returner. He was selected with the sixth-overall pick in the NFL 2011 draft by the Steelers. Brown amassed more receptions than any other player in the league from his rookie season in 2010 through 2018. After his stint with the Steelers ended in 2018, Brown bounced around the league, signing with the Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots and Bucs.

    We thought Tom Brady’s temper tantrum was bad a couple weeks ago when he threw a tablet on the ground, but Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown just had a meltdown for the ages. During the third quarter of Tampa’s matchup with the New York Jets, Brown stripped off his uniform before running topless across the field and into the locker room, seemingly removing himself from the game. It’s not clear what caused the tantrum, but teammate Mike Evans appeared to be attempting to calm Brown down before the polarizing wide receiver began stripping. Evans was unsuccessful in playing peacemaker, as Brown began throwing some of his gear into the stands and waved to the crowd on his way to the locker room. Antonio Brown just took jersey and gear off and threw it into crowd. Celebrating and ran to the locker room. No idea what is going on. pic.twitter.com/uPALqGJGJo — Jake Brown (@JakeBrownRadio) January 2, 2022 Brown was already on thin ice with the Buccaneers; Sunday afternoon was just his second game since returning from a more...
    This Ravens secondary has not turned out as expected, but imagine if it had. Imagine if the Ravens weren’t last in the NFL in pass defense. Imagine if they had Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters and DeShon Elliott. Imagine them even having a few extra days to prepare for the Los Angeles Rams, to study every route run by all-everything wide receiver Cooper Kupp. Chances are, Kupp would still find a way to get open Sunday in Baltimore. Two weeks ago, all he and quarterback Matthew Stafford needed in their ever-evolving aerial assault was just one half-speed practice repetition. At some point before the Rams (11-4) traveled to Seattle in Week 15, Kupp reviewed a pass play they’d run only in a walk-through. It was “a little hairy there for a second,” Stafford recalled Wednesday to local reporters, but he suggested an adjustment to Kupp’s route the next time they ran it. When Rams coach Sean McVay called the same play in the red zone against the Seahawks, with Seattle leading 10-3 in the third quarter, Stafford...
    Getty Cordarrelle Patterson warming up before facing the 49ers. Cordarrelle Patterson is getting used to being a marked man for the Atlanta Falcons. He’s arguably the most dynamic player on the Falcons’ offense, although record-breaking rookie tight end Kyle Pitts might have something to say about that. Either way, Patterson is somebody who merits a lot of attention from opposing teams. He’s also a player who gets plenty of respect from other stars around the NFL. Week 17’s opponent, the Buffalo Bills are no different. Their Pro Bowl wide receiver has lavished praise on Patterson, although the latter isn’t necessarily convinced by the kind words.

    Justin K. Aller/Getty Images Rico Bussey #84 of the Pittsburgh Steelers in action during training camp at Heinz Field on July 29, 2021. During this past summer Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver Rico Bussey got off to a strong start in training camp, so much so that Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said the undrafted free agent was “making a case for early camp darling.” Brooke Pryor of ESPN highlighted Bussey’s talent as well, going so far as to say that “he looked a little bit like” Antonio Brown, one of the most accomplished receivers in Steelers history. But Bussey’s play tailed off as camp and the preseason went along and he was part of the final round of roster cuts on August 31, 2021. He was added to the team’s practice squad the next day, only to be placed on the practice squad Reserve/injured list a few days after that with an undisclosed injury. That’s where he remained until Wednesday December 29, when the Steelers restored him to the practice squad. Bussey to Make His...
    Allen Robinson was back at Halas Hall on Tuesday after a bout of COVID-19, and the Chicago Bears wide receiver said he still is working his way back physically. Robinson missed 11 days and two games with the virus, which he called “a beast.” He said it caused him to lose about 10 pounds and resulted in a fever, itchy throat and nasal and chest congestion. Robinson said he no longer is contagious but is “still kind of fighting through” being sick, something he said he doesn’t deal with often. He will evaluate where he is in terms of conditioning over the next few days as he prepares to potentially return for Sunday’s home finale against the New York Giants at Soldier Field. The Bears have their first full practice of the week Wednesday. “Something that hits you with chest congestion and nasal congestion and stuff like that, all of that is going to be tough for anybody, especially having to get yourself back ready to play a game,” Robinson said. “Losing weight and things like...
    Check out the Oklahoma vs. Oregon live stream, odds, TV channel and radio broadcast information for the Alamo Bowl between the Sooners and Ducks. Neither Oklahoma nor Oregon expected to come into the Alamo Bowl with new head coaches, but here they are. Before the Sooners and Ducks can move into new eras with new head coach hires Brent Venables and Dan Lanning, the two teams will close out a wild 2021 season in San Antonio. The Sooners lost Lincoln Riley to USC and promptly brought in Bob Stoops as an interim head coach for the bowl. The Ducks saw Mario Cristobal head for Miami, so now they’ve turned to wide receivers coach Bran McClendon as the bowl game interim.

    Joe Robbins/Getty Images Damion Willis of the Cincinnati Bengals during training camp on August 23, 2020. On Tuesday December 28 the Pittsburgh Steelers signed former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Damion Willis, one of three moves involving the team’s practice squad. Willis, 24, is a former undrafted free agent out of Troy who appeared in ten games for the Bengals in 2019, including two starts. During those games he caught nine passes for 82 yards on 16 targets. In the two years since, he has spent time with the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, Denver Broncos and New York Giants. In two seasons with the Troy Trojans (2017-18) he played in 24 games, catching a total of 98 passes for 1,496 yards and 13 touchdowns, including 10 TDs in 2018. A practice spot came open on Monday, when wide receiver Anthony Miller was added to the practice squad Reserve/COVID-19 list. Meanwhile, on Tuesday the team restored offensive guard Malcolm Pridgeon to the practice squad after he too spent time on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. In a corresponding move, the Steelers released...

While quarterback Josh Allen was undoubtedly the star during the Buffalo Bills 33-21 win over the New England Patriots in Week 16, an unexpected teammate joined him in the spotlight during this AFC East rivalry matchup, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie.

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has reportedly accumulated a total of $100,000 in fines for breaking coronavirus protocols. Several league and union sources confirmed to ESPN that Beasley had multiple infractions against coronavirus protocols, rules he has vocally opposed from the beginning.

One source estimated the fines have reached the sum of $100,000,” added the report. “Another source believed it was just...
    Quarterback Nick Foles will try to lead the Chicago Bears to their first win in a month when he makes his first start of 2021 on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field. Foles is starting because Justin Fields is recovering from an ankle injury, and Andy Dalton is out with a groin injury. The Bears elevated rookie quarterback Ryan Willis from the practice squad Saturday, and he potentially could be Foles’ backup if the Bears decide to make Fields inactive. Bears coach Matt Nagy said they were weighing Willis’ preparedness against whether Fields would be OK to play in an emergency. Foles hasn’t played in a regular-season game since 2020 when he went 2-5 as the Bears starter, throwing 10 touchdown passes and eight interceptions. He injured his hip and glute against the Minnesota Vikings on Nov. 16, 2020, the Bears turned back to Mitch Trubisky and Foles didn’t start again. Aside from Fields and Dalton being out, the Bears enter Sunday with nine players still on the reserve/COVID-19 list: defensive lineman Akiem Hicks,...

    Florida Gators wide receiver Justin Shorter was carted off the field in the Gasparilla Bowl after taking a terrifying hit. The Florida Gators looked to end their season on a high note with a victory over the UCF Knights in the Gasparilla Bowl. The result of the game took a backseat due to the injury suffered by Gators wide receiver Justin Shorter.

    NASHVILLE — From T.O. to Deebo, the 49ers finally have another Pro Bowl wide receiver after a 17-year drought. Deebo Samuel is the first 49ers wide receiver to make the Pro Bowl since Terrell Owens, way back in 2003. Teammates joining Samuel with Pro Bowl honors are defensive end Nick Bosa, fullback Kyle Juszczyk, tight end George Kittle and left tackle Trent Williams. That comprises the 49ers’ largest contingent since 2013, when nine Niners made the Pro Bowl. Samuel’s candidacy certainly wasn’t hurt by his physical rushing ability, all en route to his first career Pro Bowl. He finished second behind the Green Bay Packers’ Davante Adams (Palo Alto High) in fan voting, which comprises a third of the election process that also factors in players’ and coaches’ votes. Other NFC wide receivers in the mix: Cooper Kupp (Los Angeles Rams), Justin Jefferson (Minnesota Vikings), and CeeDee Lamb (Dallas Cowboys). Already lost to season-ending injury are DeAndre Hopkins (Arizona Cardinals) and Chris Godwin (Tampa Bay Buccaneers). Samuel has run for a touchdown in his...
    FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Russell Gage’s late-season emergence is especially important as quarterback Matt Ryan tries to keep the Atlanta Falcons’ passing game moving despite more uncertainty at wide receiver. Tajae Sharpe missed Wednesday’s practice after leaving last week’s loss at San Francisco with a foot injury. Coach Arthur Smith referred to Sharpe’s chances of returning for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions as “tricky.” Sharpe has started six games this season, including the last two. Gage has made perhaps the best bid to claim the role of Ryan’s go-to wide receiver. It’s a job which has remained fluid since the offseason trade of Julio Jones to Tennessee. Calvin Ridley, who was expected to move up as the team’s top wideout, has missed most of the season after announcing on his Twitter account on Oct. 31 he needs “to step away from football at this time and focus on my mental wellbeing.” With only three regular-season games remaining, it has become increasingly unlikely Ridley will return this season after playing in only five games. Smith said Wednesday there was...
