HT.com: J.J. Watt Speaks

(on moving inside in certain situations) "That’s fine by me. I’m more than happy to move inside in certain situations. I feel very comfortable playing anywhere along the defensive line. The goal is to sack (Indianapolis QB) Peyton Manning; that’s what everyone around here is saying. That’s my job."

Just talked to Aldon Smith. Good kid. My guess? He did a poor job of hiding that he knows he's...

Peter King Now Says Houston Texans Not Likely To Trade Up

Per Anna Megan-Raley: "I’ve been told in the past couple of days," writes King, "that Houston G.M. Rick Smith is loathe to use so much draft currency to move up from 11 to five or seven to get Peterson." ProFootballTalk.com also has the story. Have at it Houston fans.

Come tomorrow, we'll all be able to laugh at how wrong we were.

Antwaun Molden Is The Postman

The Two-Day Hangover: Newtonian Stupidity

Could I interest you in some draft thoughts from the mind of MDC?

Judge Nelson Rules For Players, Lockout Lifted

At least until the NFL appeal is heard in the Eighth District Court Of Appeals, anyway. No stay from the judge though, which is a big win for the players. Looks like we may go under 2010 rules next year if the injunction holds up.

Andre Johnson Receives Full Medical Clearance

A happy way to start Draft Week. In case you don't remember, Andre had arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle during the off-season. Link to the mothership, h/t to Rotoworld.com.
