    What's the actual number, 10%? 20%? 40%? who knows unless they all autopsy
    The league is still putting its head in the sand on this issue and it will end up being the downfall of the NFL either through financial losses in lawsuits or just the decrease in the talent pool as less and less people let their kids play football.

    In terms of lawsuits, they settled with former players on financial compensation. Going forward, you can bet that there's going to be language in every player contract that states players are at high risk of CTE and turning into vegetables later in life and if that happens the NFL is not responsible and if you don't agree don't sign, otherwise initial every single one of these points in front of a notary

    Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended 6 games for domestic violence accusations dating back to last year. Elliott has never been arrested in connection with the accusations, but the league found "that there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that [Elliott] engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016". He's expected to appeal (he has 3 days to file). Presumably Jerry Jones is already prepping motions to the Supreme Court, The Hague, and the United Federation of Planets.

    The Buffalo Bills did some dealing.

    Bills traded WR Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams for CB E.J. Gaines; also acquired WR Jordan Matthews from the Philadelphia Eagles for CB Ronald Darby
