- The NFL has partnered with CBS for Thursday Night Football in 2014. What this means is that eight Thursday night games early in the 2014 season will be broadcast by CBS (and shown at the same time on NFL Network), and eight more games -- two of which will be on a Saturday -- will be exclusively shown on NFL Network later in the season. Unfortunately, this means more Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, as they are going to announce the Thursday night games.
- Joique Bell stopped by MLB Network for an interview last week.
- The Free Press has the story of Mike Kostiuk, who, at 94 years old, is the oldest living former Detroit Lions player.
- Thanks to another season-ending injury, Ryan Broyles landed 22nd on Rotoworld's list of the most disappointing players in 2013.
- Rotoworld's top 50 rankings are out for the 2014 NFL Draft.
- The Miami Dolphins are the latest team to implement variable ticket pricing. The Lions and New England Patriots both recently switched to variable ticket pricing for 2014.
- There are several intriguing options for the NFL's season-opening game in Seattle next season. For example, the NFL could have a rematch of this year's Super Bowl by having the Seattle Seahawks host the Denver Broncos. The NFL could also opt for a rematch of the NFC Championship Game by having the Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers. Personally, I'd rather see Seattle take on San Francisco than Denver in Week 1.
