Marshawn Lynch to hold out

Months after helping the Seattle Seahawks win their first Super Bowl, running back Marshawn Lynch said he will not participate in training camp. Instead he will hold out for a contract with more money up front, which could be a major blow for Seattle -- if you believe training camp to be important for a 28-year-old Pro Bowler.

Did the Buffalo Bills trade too much for the right to draft wide receiver Sammy Watkins?

If this ridiculous Vine is any indication (note: NFL executives should not base decisions on six-second videos), the answer is no:

An NFL team in Los Angeles?

The NFL-to-Los Angeles talk is picking up steam again, with Marcus Allen saying the Oakland Raiders should move there if the stadium situation is not settled and the Los Angeles Times reporting that the league is looking into possible stadium sites around Southern California. It's been 20 years since the Raiders and St. Louis Rams last played in the area. Will one of them, or another team, move to L.A. anytime soon?

Maybe Andrew Hawkins forgot he's not a Cincinnati Bengal anymore. That would explain why, on Thursday, the newly signed Cleveland Browns wide receiver decided to troll LeBron James-hungry Cavaliers fans by tweeting the following:



Yes, that's a link to a 2006 story, when James signed an extension with Cleveland. Predictably, fans were upset.





Hawkins' reaction to the reaction? Well ...





Here's betting Hawkins really hopes LeBron comes back.

Josh Gordon arrested for DWI

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested on a DWI charge over the weekend, adding to his long list of off-field issues that have plagued him since college. Some are calling for the Browns to release Gordon, while others are arguing that would be a meaningless move as he is likely to be in rehab all season anyway and would be quickly re-signed by another team for the 2015 season.

What should the Browns do? Do you come at the topic with experience dealing with individuals suffering from substance abuse issues?

Should the Browns cut Josh Gordon following his DWI arrest?
