NFL reduces Le’Veon Bell’s drug-related suspension to 3 games

The NFL announced Bell’s three-game suspension for violating the substance abuse rules on Friday.

According to informed sources, the consensus between the NFL and the players union is the reason why Bell’s time to ban from the beginning of the four games reduces to three games.

As part of the agreement, Bell remains in the current stage of the NFL’s drug project rather than advancing to the next one. Missing drug test is due to Bell’s travel plan, which the testers did not be informed about it.

On Twitter and Instagram, Bell apologized to his teammates and Steelers fans, but the apology messages on both platforms were deleted shortly after the release.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said the team was “disappointed” and Bell’s error to make the team in a statement “disadvantaged.”

NFL Coach: New kickoff rule makes racing more dangerous

Now NFL coaches are thinking about the five-yard problem, which is the league for the new driving distance adjustment.

The new rules move the kickoff yard line to the location of 25 yards line, which will lead to a lot of gambling kickoff program.

New NFL rules

Recently, Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh and other coaches unanimously expressed anxiety for the new rules.

Harbaugh said: “The purpose of the new rules may deviate, if the opening just wants to leave football, then please directly cancel it.”

Other coaches show such a rule would lead to more risk factors, the Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said:” I think this will lead to many new tactics, such as high kick, but I do not think they can get the desired result.”

The Washington Redskins coach Ben Kotwica said:” I do not know what the goal is, but it will end because of certain things.”

The new rule is still needed to obtain more feedback, and we still unknown whether it will work as the games played.

Michael Vick hopes to campaign for NFL again

Michael Vick, 36 years old, has been the substitution of Ben Roethlisberger last season, but he would like to stay in the NFL for a season.

The former draft pick is serving as a quarterbacks coach currently in Florida and trying to regain an opportunity to return to the NFL.

It’s not the first time we hear Vick wants to return to the NFL. Vick left the Philadelphia Eagles and had played for more than one team since 2013 until signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as a substitution.

“I think I’m in better shape now than I was last year,” Vick said. “Last year I was a little in my feelings, a little depressed thinking I should’ve been somewhere. Now I understand where I’m at. … That’s why I been trying to work as hard as I can. I feel like last year I didn’t really show what I could do.”

Vick is a free agent now, but no team has contacted him except the Dallas Cowboys listed him as a possible replacement choice. ESPN believes Vick has an opportunity to replace the quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks.

Tony Romo talks viral photo, practice routine

Yes, Tony Romo was aware of the memes going around the internet the other day. No, he doesn’t care. No, he’s not out of shape.

“I think I’ve gone through enough criticism in my career that that is the least of my worries,” Romo said after Monday’s practice. “Granted if I was that big we would have to have some talks. But I think I will be all right.”

Romo said this is the best he has felt coming into a camp in a few years. He was able to do everything in the offseason, despite collarbone surgery in March.

In the past three seasons Romo has worked his training camp schedule mostly with a two-on, one-off routine. He did not take part in Sunday’s practice with an eye on Monday’s work in pads and the first off day of camp coming Wednesday.

“You always want to be smart starting off,” Romo said. “The silly thing is just to say you’re going to be perfect, let’s do everything 100 percent every day. I did that in minicamp and OTAs, but there are just so many days to camp, it would be not very intelligent to pretend that you’re going to do everything every single day. Two times a day you’re out there throwing and moving, there’s just a lot more to it. They are a lot longer days. You just have to be smart and hopefully having the same feeling.”

Romo completed 9 of 14 passes in team and seven-on-seven drills Monday. He was a late on a few throws and had one pass intercepted. That’s to be expected early in camp as players get back into a routine.

Romo said it takes him about a day to get used to throwing in pads again.

“It’s a little different, but when you have ‘perfect fundamentals’ it just goes the right way,” Romo joked.
