Hall of Famer Troy Aikman is worried about Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo

Dallas Cowboys legend Troy Aikman expressed concern Thursday over Tony Romo’s back woes. The 34-year-old Romo suffered a herniated disk in Dallas’ 24-23 comeback victory over the Washington Redskins on December 22 and was forced to have surgery later that week. Romo, who agreed to a six-year contract extension worth $108 million in March 2013, also underwent the knife to have a non-cancerous cyst removed from his back shortly before last spring’s draft. Without Romo under center, the Cowboys lost 24-22 versus Philadelphia, finished 8-8, and again failed to advance to the playoffs. The former ravager of Jessica Simpson and … Continue reading

Bernard Hopkins will embarrass Beibut Shumenov this weekend in D.C.

Bernard Hopkins will battle Beibut Shumenov in a unification bout on Saturday night at the DC Armory in Washington. Hopkins (54-6-2-2, 32 KOs), who is also a past two-weight world titlist, last exited the squared circle in October after universally outscoring Karo Murat to successfully defend the IBF light heavyweight crown.

Dismissing 18 years of seniority, Hopkins opened a cut on Murat’s left eye and bullied the youngster for … Continue reading

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate is reportedly excited to work with new OC Joe Lombardi this autumn. The 25-year-old Tate, who penned a five-year deal worth $31 million to become a Lion in March, expects to be used by Lombardi like Lance Moore was with the Saints. Since being taken out of Notre Dame with the 60th pick in the 2010 draft, Tate has caught 165 balls for 2,195 yards and 15 touchdowns over 58 games as a Seahawk. Although a poor route runner with slippery hands, Tate is extremely athletic and strong and his heart and competitiveness can’t … Continue reading

The New York Giants are worried about Eli Manning

According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, the New York Giants are worried that erratic quarterback Eli Manning is declining under center. New York could have extended the 33-year-old Manning’s contract this offseason and gained significant cap relief. However, general manager Jerry Reese wasn’t willing to renegotiate with Manning. The 6-foot-4, 218-pound Manning tossed 18 touchdowns, against 27 interceptions, for 3,818 yards in 2013. Even more worrisome, the two-time Super Bowl MVP completed an atrocious 57.5 percent of his 551 attempts. Since getting drafted first overall out of Mississippi in 2004, Manning’s thrown 229 scores, in comparison to 171 picks, for 35,345 … Continue reading
