The morning roundup

April, 20, 2010

Today we look at a high-need position for the Jets: safety. Here is the story and a look at the three top candidates at the spot.

Tonight at 7 the NFL releases the 2010 schedule, so you can check it out here and open another browser window with your preferred travel website and get a choice flight and hotel in Miami in (is it too much to hope?) December. We will have that fully covered with the news and analysis.

Jason Taylor could make a decision today. I was so bored just writing that, it's been a long wait.

And finally to the Pittsburgh quarterback.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he will announce the decision on suspending Ben Roethlisberger when he comes to it, whether or not it conflicts with the NFL Draft or the schedule being made public. He said he thinks he owes it to everyone to make it public rather than try to hold the news.

"You're a role model whether you like it or not," Goodell said on the ESPN's Mike & Mike this morning.
