The NFL’s postseason all-star event will look very different this year, with the traditional Pro Bowl replaced by the Pro Bowl Games. Gone is the half-hearted tackle football game pitting AFC versus NFC; fans will be treated instead to a week’s worth of skills competitions and a flag football exhibition featuring the highest vote-getters from across the two conferences.
But a nomination is still a badge of honor for players as a way to differentiate the best of the best and measure elite play in a given season.
Voting has been open for almost two weeks, and the NFL has leaked the current standings with nearly three weeks still to go.
The Cowboys are well-represented, with two players leading their positions in the fan vote. Five others are reportedly within striking distance.
Fans can cast a vote as often as they’d like at www.nfl.com/pro-bowl-games/vote, via the official website of any team, or directly on Twitter from Dec. 1 through Dec. 15 using a special hashtag.
Here’s a look at how the Cowboys are faring in the current count, as of midday Nov. 28.
Look out, the next great Manning quarterback might be on the way. Marshall Manning, the son of five-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning, is 11 years old now and has been growing up on the sidelines of NFL games. He’s been coached by his dad — and some of Peyton’s former teammates — in flag football for several years now, and Marshall has developed quite the arm.
Myles Garrett is concrete evidence as to why players should never compete in the NFL Pro Bowl. The Cleveland Browns star suffered a brutal injury during Sunday's Pro Bowl events. Garrett has been diagnosed with a dislocated toe, per NFL insider Tom Pelissero. "#Browns star DE ...
The Chicago Bears are contemplating dealing the No. 1 overall pick. So says Todd McShay from ESPN, who relayed some of the chatter he had heard this past week at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. I’ve heard similar in talking to scouts and execs this week about Chicago’s situation....
Louis Riddick knows a thing or two about the NFL. The former NFL safety spent 14 seasons between Washington and Philadelphia, working in the front office. Beginning his front-office career as a scout, Riddick was the director of pro personnel for both Washington and Philadelphia. Since then, Riddick has become...
The Alabama Crimson Tide finally hired an offensive coordinator. Tommy Rees leaves Notre Dame to become Bill O’Brien’s replacement in Tuscaloosa. Frankly, the move is a surprising one given he has merely had relatively moderate success at the college level. Rees has coordinated the Notre Dame offense since 2020. In those three seasons, the team only once eclipsed 35 points per game.
With Kellen Moore joining the Chargers as their new offensive coordinator, they could look to bring in some of his former players when free agency begins next month. While they’re not in a favorable position with spending money at the moment, Los Angeles will likely make some moves to free up some salary cap space so they can add some.
National Signing Day has passed, officially closing the door on the 2023 recruiting cycle. Now, it is time for everyone to shift their focus to the 2024 recruiting class. A goal every team should have is landing a quarterback early in the cycle to help recruit the rest of the class over the remainder of the cycle.
The midseason trade between the Indianapolis Colts and Buffalo Bills involved a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2023 NFL draft, and it appears those conditions were met. While the exact conditions of the trade remain a mystery, it’s been reported that the sixth-round pick involved in the deal from the Bills has turned into a fifth-round pick, giving the Colts an extra selection in that round.
The Houston Texans are more than likely going with a quarterback with their No. 2 overall pick in Round 1 of the 2023 NFL draft. The only mystery is who they will select, and that answer is further clouded due to the Chicago Bears possessing the No. 1 pick and being open to dealing it to another quarterback-needy team that wants to jump the Texans.
Where Texas running back Bijan Robinson could land in the 2023 NFL draft has been a popular debate over the last few weeks. Robinson is the clear No. 1 running back prospect in the draft, but he’s been projected to land anywhere from the early first round to the back end of the first round in recent mock drafts. Therefore it’s likely Robinson will land somewhere between the two extremes.
A majority of executives from around the NFL believe the relationship between the Green Bay Packers and future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers will end this offseason via trade. From Mike Sando of The Athletic: “The bottom line is that NFL execs think the Packers are more likely to...
The 2010s were littered with games where wide receiver A.J. Green and cornerback Joe Haden would go toe-to-toe in epic showdowns when the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals would faceoff. And now both players have decided to hang up their cleats as Green announced his retirement today. The AFC North will not be the same.
The Cleveland Browns still have their underperforming left tackle Jedrick Wills under contract for at least one more season (two if they pick up his fifth-year option), and signed right tackle Jack Conklin to a new deal at the end of the season. They could, however, be looking to add talented depth to their roster. According to The OBR’s Brad Stainbrook, those around the league would not be shocked to see him land in Cleveland:
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman has been ruled out for Super Bowl 57 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Chiefs place Hardman on injured reserve due to a core muscle and pelvic injury. Mecole Hardman, a former Georgia Bulldog, finished the regular season with 25 catches for 297 receiving...
The Big 12 standings are taking shape in the early days of February. The Texas Longhorns are moving into strong positioning after wins over the Baylor Bears and Kansas State Wildcats. It wasn’t such a great week for the Wildcats after dropping two games for the week and losing its...
The Bears should have no shortage of suitors for the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL draft. While the Colts and Texans have emerged as early favorites for a potential trade partner, there are a good number of teams inside the top-10 that would love to move up to the top spot.
After the blockbuster trade for controversial quarterback Deshaun Watson last offseason, the Cleveland Browns will have to wait until the 2025 NFL Draft to see a first round pick next to their name. This makes mock drafts hard to follow as many do not go beyond the 32nd pick in the draft. However, not here as we do a 2023 NFL Mock Draft for the first 43 picks of the draft so that we can get an idea of what kind of talent may be on the board for the Browns.
