Former Seattle DL Cortez Kennedy has passed away at the age of 48. Great player in his prime, awful news...

Teams will now cut directly from their 90-man roster to their 53-man, "final" roster after the fourth preseason game, giving coaches more players to pull from in the meaningless preseason finale.
Going to be an awful lot of players looking for work the day after that cut now! The market will be flooded.

Awful. 48, that's no age at all.

looks like the LA superbowl is been pushed back,reports Tampa will host that year instead.

NFL relax the celebration rule,you can have group celebrations and use the ball as a prop now.

Yep. Tampa now have SB 55 in Feb 2021 with LA in Feb 2022.

I'd imagine Vegas will be awarded SB 57 or 58 but that decision won't be made for a while. With Atlanta's new stadium opening this year the list of stadiums in the Super Bowl rotation must be approaching double figures.

LA
Miami
Tampa
New Orleans
Houston
Glendale
Atlanta
Dallas
Vegas
Santa Clara

seems like a half measure, banning the weapons based ones is fine but having the refs judge what is a sexual celebration is just silly (what level of arousal does a ref have to be in to throw a flag ,) the NFL will still only show Elvis above the waist
