    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Veteran defensive tackle Akiem Hicks has signed a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs announced the move Wednesday, with the 32-year-old Hicks likely to become a replacement for free agent Ndamukong Suh., who spent the past three seasons on one-year deals with Tampa Bay. Hicks was a third-round draft pick of the New Orleans Saints in 2012. He spent three seasons and part of a fourth with them before finishing the 2015 season with the New England Patriots. He played the past six years with the Chicago Bears, starting all 77 games he appeared in and had 31 sacks. In 138 career games, including 110 starts, Hicks has 40½ sacks, six forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2018, but has been slowed by injuries two of the past three seasons. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/hub/nfl and https://apnews.com/hub/pro-32 and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

Cathie Wood says ‘they don’t have the DNA for this brave new world’ of electric cars © John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports Cordarrelle Patterson Early in the week, it appeared the 4-5 Atlanta Falcons would almost certainly be without leading rusher, top kick returner and overall offensive Swiss Army Knife Cordarrelle Patterson for Thursday's prime-time game against the 6-4 New England Patriots because of the ankle injury he picked up in the first half of this past Sunday's 43-3 loss at the Dallas Cowboys.  However, the Falcons weren't yet willing to rule Patterson out as of Tuesday evening, and that remains the case roughly 24 hours ahead of kickoff. According to Nick Shook of the NFL's website, Atlanta head coach Arthur Smith said that Patterson will be a game-time decision Thursday evening.  As noted by Shook and ESPN stats, Patterson has evolved into the Falcons' top ball-carrier out of the backfield, leads the team with five touchdown receptions, and has accumulated 776 yards from scrimmage...

As Charean Williams noted for Pro Football Talk, the NFL sent a memo to teams Tuesday that shows that particular rule remains in place.  "Clubs are reminded that any individual who is not fully vaccinated is required to wear a mask at all times when inside the club facility," the league said. "This includes while giving media interviews or participating in media briefings conducted indoors either at the club facility or at the stadium...

View the original article to see embedded media.Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb has been fined by the NFL on five different occasions over Dallas's first six games this season, most recently for waving on his walk-off touchdown against the Patriots on Oct. 17, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. While Lamb has been fined five times, his fines total just $46,865, per ESPN, which amounts to just under 4% of his salary this season.  He has been fined for multiple uniform violations, an illegal crackback block and taunting, per ESPN. "I've never seen a player so young get fined so much," Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas this weekend. "He's gotten fined like every week. It's very confusing to me.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Texans asked teams for a six-piece package of players and draft picks to trade their franchise quarterback during the offseason.  A package could reportedly include one player and five picks or two players and four draft selections, Schefter adds. However, the Texans were not interested in moving off that stance.  Watson is currently facing 22 civil lawsuits from women alleging sexual assault and inappropriate behavior. Ten of those women have also filed criminal complaints against the three-time Pro Bowler.  No team is interested in meeting Houston's asking price for Watson unless conditions are attached to draft picks included in a deal due to the quarterback's legal issues, Schefter adds.  Watson asked for a trade from the Texans in January.

    Photo by Michael J. Minardi/Getty Images There are many amazing performers waiting to be enshrined in Canton, Ohio. The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2021 is set. Contributor Bill Nunn, Senior Committee nominee and wide receiver Drew Pearson and coach Tom Flores certainly waited their turn. In terms of the modern-era players, first-time eligibles such as quarterback Peyton Manning, wide receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive back Charles Woodson are joined by long-time standouts such as guard Alan Faneca and safety John Lynch. Many of the following 30 players were semifinalists and for some, finalists for the Class of 2021. And there’s also some names that have waited an awfully long time to get the call.

Now theyre being shut out Twitter reacts to Patriots’ Cam Newton throwing horrific pick-six New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton entered Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams having thrown five touchdown passes compared to nine interceptions in 11 starts this season. Sure the former NFL MVP has 11 rushing touchdowns to his name, but those passing stats are about as bad as it gets. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Cam Newton has been fine as a runner this season, but his passing has not been up to par. Like clockwork, Cam Newton continued his struggles with New England in must-win mode against the Rams to open Week 14. Already down 10-0 in the first half, Newton threw a brutal pick-six into the hands of Rams linebacker Kenny Young. It might be the worst pass we’ve seen this season. What's the plan, Cam? pic.twitter.com/GALfYV9a3r— Sportsnaut (@Sportsnaut) December 11, 2020 We’re not too sure what Newton was looking at here. New England was obviously attempting a...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots bolstered their linebacking corps on Thursday, signing Jack Cichy off waivers. Cichy had been waived by Tampa Bay on Wednesday. The Athletic’s Greg Auman first reported the news. Former Bucs linebacker Jack Cichy, waived by Tampa Bay on Wednesday, was claimed today by the Patriots. — Greg Auman (@gregauman) December 3, 2020 Cichy, 25, was a sixth-round pick out of Wisconsin by the Buccaneers in the 2018 NFL draft. He’s been used almost exclusively on special teams, and he has been on the field for just under 60 percent of the Bucs’ special teams snaps this season. Cichy has taken zero defensive snaps in 2020, after taking one in 2019 and six as a rookie in 2018. Injuries have limited Cichy to just 15 games in three NFL seasons. Cichy was a productive linebacker in college, registering 120 total tackles, 6.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and six pass defenses in his sophomore and junior seasons.

    It all started for the Vikings on Sept. 17, 1961 before some curiosity seekers at a half-full Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington. The Vikings entered the NFL as an expansion team, and their first game figured to be ugly one. They faced the mighty Chicago Bears, coached by the legendary George Halas. Two weeks earlier, the teams met in a preseason game that the Bears won 30-7. “They thought they were going to come in and whip us,” remembered Frank Youso, then a Vikings starting tackle. “And a lot of people in our own stadium were hollering, ‘They’re going to kick your butt.’ But we didn’t think so.” In one of the most shocking, though unappreciated, upsets in NFL history, the Vikings won 37-13. Rookie quarterback Fran Tarkenton came off the bench in the first quarter to throw for four touchdowns and run for another. The defense, led by defensive end Jim Marshall, was solid. The Bears managed just six points until adding a meaningless touchdown late in the game to close the scoring. “It was a great first victory for...

Indeed, the club recently signed both Tavon Austin and JJ Nelson to fill out its WR depth chart. © Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports The 49ers seem to be expecting top wideout Deebo Samuel, who is recovering from surgery to correct the Jones fracture in his left foot, to miss the first six weeks of the 2020 season. But Samuel’s timetable may not be quite that long. Maiocco acknowledges that workout videos posted by the talented second-year pass catcher suggest he could return sooner, and head coach Kyle Shanahan is still hoping for a Week 1 return. “Deebo’s going to do everything he can to be in shape, but...
