    No Appeal

    New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft disagrees with the way in which NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has gone about punishing his football team for Deflategate, but Kraft’s conflict with the NFL and the commissioner are going to end there. Speaking at the NFL owners meetings in San Francisco on Tuesday, Kraft informed reporters — and NFL fans everywhere — that the Patriots will accept the penalties handed down by the NFL. The team will not appeal its punishment. “I don’t want to continue the rhetoric that has gone on for the last four months,” Kraft said. “I’m going to accept,…

    Everett Golson Leaving ND

    The Notre Dame quarterback competition has apparently been settled. Everett Golson has decided to transfer and spend his final season of (immediate) eligibility playing elsewhere, as first reported by ESPN.com.

And he’ll likely have plenty of suitors to choose from. While he had problems with turnovers in 2014, Golson is still a talented quarterback with plenty of experience. He’s…
