Back in February, Goodell recommended a rule that would result in ejections for players who committed two personal fouls during the course of a game. Sherman ripped the idea behind the proposal.
“I think it’s foolish,” he said. “But it sounds like something somebody who’s never played the game would say, something that they would suggest, because he doesn’t understand. He’s just a face. He’s just a suit. He’s never stepped foot on the field and understood how you can get a personal foul.”

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Calvin Johnson is hanging them up.
The most prolific wide receiver in Detroit Lions history and one of the most talented at the position in NFL history is retiring after nine professional seasons in which he accumulated over 11,000 receiving yards, seven 1,000-yard seasons and six Pro Bowl invitations.

Mayock isn’t alone in that belief.
In his latest NFL Notebook, NFL Media’s Albert Breer relayed quotes from a trio of defensive coaches dreading the prospect of Kaepernick as a dual-threat quarterback in Kelly’s read-option offense.
“I think [Kaepernick] is a good enough passer, but obviously what’ll be a nightmare is his ability to run,” on defensive coordinator said. “That offense is straight ‘Freddy Krueger’ when you have a quarterback that can pull the ball and run at any given time.”
