Antonio Brown missed Steelers practice Friday and Saturday with a toe injury and is listed as questionable for Monday night’s matchup with the Bengals.
The league disputed Jones’ claims with a very direct shot at him.
“Your description of the proposed extension is so at odds with the actual facts that we can only conclude that you are either uninformed or seek deliberately to mislead the other owners.”
When news first broke that Jones was threatening to sue, it was not at all clear what the basis was for the potential lawsuit. This letter clarifies it — he’s trying to get the contract out of the committee’s hands and back to the full group of owners, in the hopes that he can rally enough of them to block Goodell’s deal and send the commissioner packing.
The Jaguars have gotten the ball back with the game still tied. Once again, Blake Bortles has a chance to be the hero, which is to say: He throws another interception. Phil Dawson kicks a 57-yard field goal and the Cardinals win.
As the games wrap up, I knead the mixture that will become tonight’s meatloaf. I won’t go into my mother’s full recipe although putting a recipe at the end of 4000 words of derivative bullshit would make this a typical internet recipe but the combination of ground beef, ground pork, raw egg, bread crumbs, and various sauces and spices is less than pleasant.
It gets better as I go, though, and after I shape the loaf and wash my hands, I put the pan in the oven and watch RedZone’s touchdown montage. It goes on a little too long, but then, so do most things about the NFL.
