America’s biggest crisis has been resolved. Tom Brady’s TWO stolen Super Bowl jerseys have been recovered, as first reported by CSNNE’s Tom Curran. The thief, posing as a member of the international media, not only stole Brady’s jersey from Super Bowl LI but also nabbed his jersey from Super Bowl XLIX, the NFL announced. The jerseys were found in Mexico. Brady’s more recent jersey had been valued at $500,000, and the theft was originally classified as a first-degree felony by the Houston police department. The FBI valiantly led the investigation with help from local law enforcement. Thankfully the FBI invested…

The entire football world shook Sunday evening as 49ers great Dwight Clark revealed he was suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, more commonly known as ALS. The disease deteriorates nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. I wanted to share some unfortunate news: I have ALS. https://t.co/RqU0fFT98g — Dwight Clark (@DwightC87) March 20, 2017 The recipient of “The Catch,” which sparked a dynasty, wrote about his fight ahead in a poignant letter, “While I’m still trying to wrap my head around the challenge I will face with this disease over the coming years, the only thing I know is that…

Future Hall of Famer DeMarcus Ware’s decision to retire this week came out of left field. He had frequently talked about playing in 2017, and beyond. Even at 34, Ware is still near the prime of his career and has been an integral part of Denver’s dominating defense for the past three years. So why leave the NFL (and $9 million on the table) now? In an exclusive with The MMQB’s Peter King, Ware says he simply wants to protect his long-term health. “How many times when I go through a full season do I feel great from start to…

It has been approximately 25 years since things were last harmonious with the Washington football team. On the heels of free agency came another layer of angst Thursday. Kirk Cousins appealed personally to owner Dan Snyder for a trade but was basically told not to get his hopes up, per sources. — Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 9, 2017 Cousins had previously said he was open to be traded to San Francisco, a quarterback thirsty franchise that is now being led by Cousins’ former offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan. If Snyder is truly set in stone, Cousins is set to make approximately $24.5…

Colin Kaepernick’s days in San Francisco are likely numbered. Kaepernick’s agents informed teams that the 29-year-old quarterback will become a free agent next week, NFL Network first reported. With a pending decision on Tony Romo and Jimmy Garoppolo trade rumors swirling, the quarterback market is still in flux. The 49ers need to move on from Kaepernick, who is too far along in his career to be a project. Kyle Shanahan when addressing media Wednesday suggested that Kap’s 49ers’ tenure would afford him no special treatment. “We don’t have an attachment to Kap,” Shanahan said, via the San Jose Mercury News.…

Could Roger Goodell infuse the NFL with a wee dose of fun? According to a report from USA Today’s Tom Pelissero, the answer is that’s more probable than not. Pelissero reports that the competition committee has been meeting this week in Indianapolis and reviewing excessive celebration calls. There could be a shift in focus from the act itself to its duration, with some obvious exceptions. Excessive celebration flags were in full force last season, totaling 30, almost double that of the previous year. Newsweek has a lengthy list of examples. The brainstorming meetings will continue concurrent to the NFL combine.…

Lesson no. infinity that the NFL is a young man’s game, particularly at running back. The Vikings chose not to exercise the 2017 option on soon-to-be-32-year old Adrian Peterson, while the Chiefs waived 30-year-old Jamaal Charles. Minnesota decided that Peterson was not worth the $18 million he was slated to earn this season. His value on the open market will be fascinating on an individual basis, and provide a glimpse into the state of the position. Between being suspended for child abuse in 2014 and tearing his meniscus last season, Peterson has seldom seen the field in recent years. Meanwhile,…

After Steelers wideout Antonio Brown broke protocol and live broadcast Mike Tomlin’s “let’s beat those a-hole Patriots” speech following a divisional round win, some suggested #84 take his antics to a different market. But talent will always trump ill-advised dates with technology and Brown is oozing with it. Brown was rewarded handsomely Monday as the Steelers made him the highest-paid receiver in the NFL. As first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brown’s extension is worth $68 million over four years. The deal includes a $19 million signing bonus.

Apparently Kirk Cousins really likes red and gold. As one of the NFL’s most intriguing offseason storylines takes a twist, the Washington QB who today was designated with the franchise tag, has listed the San Francisco 49ers as the one team he would be willing to land, according to an ESPN report. A trade to San Francisco would mean a Cousins-Kyle Shanahan reunion following Shanahan’s offensive coordinator days in Washington. The 49ers hold the no. 2 pick in the upcoming NFL draft, while Washington has no. 17. Perhaps a swap of first round picks, plus the 49ers second round pick gets the deal…

Gary from Chicago stole the show at the Oscars Sunday. (At least until the end.)  As a reminder, Gary from the Chicago is the charming bus tour customer who bantered with Jimmy Kimmel and was married by Denzel Washington, all during a live broadcast stunt. Gary from Chicago was an instant internet phenomenon. Gary from Chicago was everyone.  Naturally, Chicago’s sports teams wanted to ride the Gary from Chicago train of instant celebrity. The Bulls made a respectable opening offer. Gary from Chicago! We’ve got you covered if you want to come to a game! #Oscars — Chicago Bulls (@chicagobulls)…
