    Jon Ellis will take over day to day operations. Given he's president of the Broncos, he's probably been groomed to take over for awhile, with Bowlen knowing this day would come.

    Elway will likely have more increased responsiblities as well.

    Incredibly sad though.

    I can't think of many sportswriters who love their city quite like WP loves Denver.

    This is what Jay Cutler drove to camp. LOL. This guy.

    Well he does have a kid now, with another on the way.

    On another note, Sidney Rice decided to call it a career.

    Is that what he's calling it?

    Ugh, that is terrible news. Probably one of the five best college football players I've ever seen, we were at Carolina at the same time. Such potential, so injury prone.

    Two games for Ray Rice for knocking his wife out cold.

    This won't go over well.

    Full credit to the Deadspin poster who wrote this.

    [Ray and Janay Rice walk into the commissioners office to find Goodell sitting in a large ornate chair]

    Goodell: Ray, as it stands, I am prepared to suspend you for the entire NFL season. In order for me to shorten the suspension, I would need a VERY compelling argument.

    Rice: Well, Janay and I had a lot of discussions prior to the incident, and we ultimately decided things would be a lot easier if we both got dementia at the same time.

    Justin Blackmon got popped for possession in Oklahoma of the cannabis variation.

    That may be all she wrote - three strikes. Stinks, when he played, the Jaguars were actually okay. Don't know whether he's just stupid, or if these suspensions and laws against marijuana are decrepit and tired. I guess both.

    Did Rice ever suffer any legal consequences?

    He pleaded No Contest. I think he got community service as a result.

    Also Washington cancelled all their training camp activities for the day in Richmond as a result of severe weather (including possible tornadoes)

    So misleading.

    You have to fail a bunch of drug tests to get the mandatory 4 game suspension, that is what happened with Josh Gordon.

    And it only takes a single punch to knock a ***** out. :)

    Plus, Gordon did get a DWI, which I believe also factored into his suspension.

    DWI is a higher crime than weed IMO. So I can see that.

    I'm trying to put into words how I feel about Ray Rice's suspension that won't get me banned, but I can't right now.

    Overpaying for reliability is not always a bad thing. He's not a gamebreaker, but he's a damn good receiver.

    Most Jags "fans" watch the game on TV anyway.
