  • "Haslam’s Pilot Flying J lawsuits could be shifted to single court" (Beacon Journal) - "A dozen federal lawsuits against the truck-stop chain run by Browns owner Jimmy Haslam could be consolidated before a single judge. The cases stem from a federal investigation into alleged rebate fraud by the sales team at privately held Pilot Flying J, the country’s largest diesel retailer."
  • "Tight End Potential" (OBR) - "Unless he wins games - a lot of games on a consistent basis - as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, Rob Chudzinski will forever be tied to the tight end position. It is safe to say he has a special affinity for tight ends. Wait, that didn’t sound right. I’ll explain."
  • "Browns heed Symposium's messages" ( - "During the NFL’s annual Rookie Symposium, which is taking place in Northeast Ohio this week, the league brings in current and former players, as well as other speakers to mentor each of the draft picks on the importance of making good choices on and off the field."
  • "Cleveland Browns training camp preview" (Sporting News) - "The Browns change regimes almost as often as they change quarterbacks. The brass is considering a new opening day quarterback for the seventh straight year. Rob Chudzinski is the fourth head coach since 2008. Michael Lombardi is the fourth general manager in the same time frame."


  • "NFL teams cannot sign Aaron Hernandez without league hearing" (AP) - "The NFL told its teams Thursday that any player contract they enter into with Aaron Hernandez before charges against him are resolved won't be approved without a hearing by Commissioner Roger Goodell."
  • "Sources: Jailed Brent not released" (ESPN) - "Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent failed a second drug test and was sent back to jail on Thursday, according to the Dallas County District Attorney's office. Despite Brent's return to jail, the Cowboys have no immediate plans to part ways with him, league sources told ESPN's Ed Werder."
  • "Report: Impounded SUV was rented to Hernandez" (PFT) - "It’s generally a bad sign for a pro athlete (or, really, anyone) when a murder case is referred to as the 'other' murder case. For Aaron Hernandez, the "other" murder case arose today, and it seems to be moving fairly quickly."
  • "Robert Gill, Cardinals rookie, hits 25 MPH on treadmill" ( - "Robert Gill is a 29-year-old rookie who will attempt to catch on with the Arizona Cardinals in training camp. Until then, the wide receiver can enjoy his status as a viral video star. Gill recently posted a video on YouTube in which he sprints on a treadmill at 25 miles per hour. It's completely insane."
