    Getty Former Georgia linebacker Nakobe Dean kneels before a game in 2020. The Eagles took him in the third round. The confidence is oozing through the walls at the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia. The Eagles believe they have enough talent to win the NFC East, perhaps enough to go on a championship run. That journey begins on July 26 when rookies and veterans report to training camp. Rookie linebacker Nakobe Dean plans to be one of the first guys in the building. He’s ready to pick up where he left off in college after leading Georgia to the national title in 2022. The 5-foot-11, 231-pounder recently told Eagles Insider Dave Spadaro that he plans on winning multiple Super Bowls in Philly. And he’ll do “anything legal to win.” “I will do anything legal to win,” Dean told Spadaro, via John Clark. “I’m ready to get to work and show the Eagles why I was a great pick. The number one job is to win the Super Bowl. I plan to bring a couple of Super Bowls to...
    Getty The Cardinals believe one of their late-round draft picks can be a Pro-Bowler. Unearthing stars from the late rounds of a draft is what turns a solid class into a great one. The Arizona Cardinals think they found a future Pro-Bowler in the penultimate round of the 2022 NFL draft. This prospect, if he’s as good as advertised, would fix an obvious weakness on the Cards’ roster. The offense is stacked at the skill positions, but quarterback Kyler Murray, running back James Conner, tight end Zach Ertz and wide receiver Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown should worry about the line. Arizona’s front five allowed 39 sacks last season, while Conner and his fellow running backs combined to average 4.2 yards per carry. The numbers don’t look terrible, but performances on the ground and through the air suffered behind deteriorating blocking late in the season. Vice-President of Player Personnel Quentin Harris believes those problems could be solved by the fifth player drafted by the Cardinals this year. ALL the latest Cardinals news straight to your inbox!

    A great Music City Bowl was ruined by the officiating crew in overtime, as Tennessee should’ve been awarded a touchdown. While neither Tennessee nor Purdue put up much of a fight in regulation, with both offenses putting up more than 600 yards of total offense, the Boilermakers finally made a stop in overtime. However, should that have been the case? The Vols were stopped short on fourth-and-goal, or at least that’s how the play was called on the field. Per replay review, the Tennessee running back remained on top of the Purdue defender when the whistle was blown. SHOULD THIS HAVE BEEN A TENNESSEE TD?#CFB pic.twitter.com/CV59aHhGxa — PFF College Football (@PFF_College) December 31, 2021 Music City Bowl: Officials just ruined the ending The whistle was blown early, thus making the fact that the Vols player wasn’t down irrelevant. That’s an error by the official which clearly cost Tennessee points. Unfortunately for Josh Heupel and Co., it couldn’t be overturned. We’ll have more on this story shortly.

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields scored his first NFL touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams.

    BOSTON (CBS) — With Stephon Gilmore still on PUP and some uncertainty at corner, the Patriots are reportedly close to making a trade to help shore up the position. New England is reportedly close to acquiring cornerback Shaun Wade from the Baltimore Ravens, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Wade was a fifth-round pick by the Ravens just a few months ago, following a standout career at Ohio State. The 6-foot-1 corner played 32 games over his three seasons with the Buckeyes, picking off six passes while deflecting 18 others. He had 91 total tackles, including six for a loss, as well as five sacks over his collegiate career. Wade was a consensus All-American in 2020, and was having a solid preseason for the Ravens.

    Pittsburgh Steelers fans had to love what they saw from rookie Najee Harris on his first run in the NFL. The Pittsburgh Steelers had one of the worst running attacks in the league last season. So, the team allowed James Conner to leave in free agency, and drafted his replacement in Alabama’s Najee Harris with their first-round selection in the NFL Draft.

    Clemson football star D.J. Uiagalelei headlines PFF’s three breakout quarterback stars for 2021. If the Clemson football team plans on winning a national championship this season, their new starting quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei has to play up to his lofty five-star potential. PFF listed Uiagalelei as one of three potential breakout quarterback stars for 2021. The two others were Emory Jones of the Florida Gators and Taulia Tagovailoa of the Maryland Terrapins. While there are plenty of reasons to buy into the hype of these three signal-callers, here is why Uiagalelei should be the biggest breakout star of the trio: He can carry Clemson to a championship.

    Getty QB Sam Howell of the North Carolina Tar Heels Could another quarterback out of the University of North Carolina be the future of the Chicago Bears … again? It’s no secret that the Bears will be in the market for a potential franchise quarterback in the very near future, and it’s also no secret that the team may be sticking with veteran Nick Foles in 2021 due to contractual obligations. With the best quarterbacks of the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft (Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields and Zach Wilson) all likely be top picked in the top 10 next year, it’s quite possible Chicago sticks with Foles and a cheap backup for the 2021 season and holds out for 2022, with the hopes of landing Sam Howell, the sophomore quarterback out of UNC who some are comparing — unjustly — fellow Tar Heels alum Mitch Trubisky.

    WATCH: New York Giants come up short in last minute conversion By: Cay North November 2, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants did better than expected against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but still walked away with the loss. Despite beating the spread and giving the Bucs a late game scare, it all came down to a two point conversion to tie the game at the very end. And the play fell short, either because of Daniel Jones, great defense from the Bucs, or a bad call from the referees depending on who you want to believe. However, it’s hard to give an objective answer on if the play should have been a penalty or not because it walked very close to the line without necessarily going over.

    NORMAN, OK - NOVEMBER 23: Safety Trevon Moehrig #7 and cornerback C.J. Ceasar II #16 of the TCU Horned Frogs chest bump after a turnover by the Oklahoma Sooners in the fourth quarter on November 23, 2019 at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma. OU held on to win 28-24. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images) TCU typically has a solid defense, but a top safety duo has pushed their pass defense to a high level. In the high-flying Big 12, the TCU Horned Frogs have generally stood apart on the defensive side of the ball. That was no different in 2019, as they were No. 2 in the conference in total and pass defense (behind Oklahoma in both) before postseason play. When it was all said and done, TCU finished with the 27th-ranked pass defense in FBS last year (199.7 yards per game) and 16 interceptions (tied for ninth). Nine of those interceptions came from the safety duo of Ar’Darius Washington (five) and Trevon Moehrig (four), which was more than a lot of teams last year. TCUs safety...
