Dunlap stands up for Fluker - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
"The experts say he needs to move to guard," Dunlap said Thursday. "Maybe we can tell the experts they should start doing something else. That's why they're out there, and we're in here. They can say what we want. We know what we want, and we know where he belongs."

Nick Novak relishes competition for Chargers' kicking job - Eric Williams
Near the end of his workout, Novak said he started out kicking field goals at 55 yards, then worked back to 58, 59 and ultimately finished his workout by making a 62-yard field goal.

Roger Goodell upholds Tom Brady suspension - Gregg Rosenthal
"The most significant new information that emerged in connection with the appeal was evidence that on or about March 6, 2015 Mr. Brady instructed his assistant to destroy the cellphone that he had been using since early 2014, a period that included that AFC Championship Game and the initial weeks of the subsequent investigation," Goodell wrote in the final decision on the appeal.

2014 YAC+ - Scott Kacsmar
YAC+ is similar to plus-minus; it estimates how much YAC a receiver gained compared to what we would have expected from an average receiver catching passes of similar length in similar down-and-distance situations. This is imperfect—we don't specifically mark what route a player runs, and obviously a go route will have more YAC than a comeback—but it does a fairly good job of telling you if this receiver gets more or less YAC than other receivers with similar usage patterns.
