Solomon: Where's The Evidence, Cushing?


I know many of us are sick of talking about the Cushing suspension, but regardless of your feelings, I think this is a fair question.

McNair to Meet With NFL Commissioner to Have Cushing's Suspension Overturned


Per Mark Berman: NFL sources told FOX 26 Sports Houston Texans owner Bob McNair will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Monday in New York concerning linebacker Brian Cushing's suspension for the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Sources told FOX 26 McNair's goal is to get the commissioner to eliminate or lessen the league's suspension which will cost the Texans linebacker the first four games of the regular season. League sources told FOX 26 McNair will present new evidence to the commissioner that he hopes will help Cushing's cause. Pretty unlikely, but interesting nonetheless. UPDATE: According to Peter King, the "new evidence" that Bob McNair is presenting the Commish with is something called "Overtrained Athlete Syndrome." Wow...I'm surprised Goddell even granted him a meeting if this is true... UPDATE 2: Anna Megan has some video from today's practice of Brian Cushing explaining the "syndrome."

I'll give you three guesses as to what the topic is. First two guesses don't count.

Texans Sign Veteran Linebacker Danny Clark


Per Pancakes, the Texans have signed Danny Clark, who had a stint in Houston in 2007. Decent depth signing and I always thought he was underrated in his time here. Should help Bush cover up the Cushing mess if he hasn't lost a step.

Bob McNair: "Brian had mentioned that he had an issue there..."


Yes, I'd say a failed substance test qualifies as an "issue." Update: Cushing passed a lie detector test, according to Adam Schefter.

Associated Press May Strip Brian Cushing Of Defensive Rookie Of The Year Award


More on this later, but this seemed like the natural shoe to drop once it was reported that Cushing tested positive in September.
