|Apr 22 2018 - Shane Ray|
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said last week that the team has not decided if it will exercise its 2019 option on linebacker Shane Ray's contract, but Ray said he is confident it will. "I'm not concerned," Ray told The Athletic. "I love being a Bronco. John's got a lot of things to deal with, and whether or not he picks up my option, it doesn't say anything about what I'm going to be for this team, my role for this team. I'm just excited. I wouldn't look into too much. I think that it's going to get picked up. I think that I'm going to be here, and I'm just looking forward to this opportunity." The team has until May 3 to exercise Ray's option, which guarantees him $9.2 million for injury only and can be rescinded. Ray had 16 tackles and a sack in eight games last year as he was limited by a wrist injury.

Gruden reportedly made the decision to release King, which shaved $2.9 million from the salary cap. The Raiders had signed King to a five-year, $16.5-million contract extension a year ago. A second-team All-Pro selection in 2016, King ranked sixth in the NFL in punting average last season at 47.4 yards per kick.
|Apr 4 2018 - Von Miller|
OLB Von Miller could be in some hot water after posting pictures over social media following a recent fishing expedition off the coast of Miami.
Miller is part of an investigation by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) after he posted pictures of landing a 9 1/2-foot hammerhead shark. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) took issue with the Super Bowl 50 MVP, saying that it will "ensure that Miller is held accountable if killing this animal was, as we suspect, illegal." FWC Public Information Coordinator Rob Klepper told TMZ Sports that it is "looking into whether or not a violation occurred in this incident." Miller released the shark, which is classified as "group 3," according to commission's website. Harvest in state waters is a second-degree misdemeanor. In Florida, second-degree misdemeanors are punishable by up to $500 fine and 60 days in jail, as determined by a judge.

He connected with Stefon Diggs for a 61-yard touchdown as time expired to send Minnesota past the New Orleans Saints 29-24 and into the NFC Championship Game next week in Philadelphia.
Trying to get into field-goal range in the final seconds, Keenum lofted a pass high to Diggs, who went up for the ball with New Orleans safety Marcus Williams looking like he might have been trying to avoid getting a pass-interference penalty. Diggs made the catch, turned, stayed in bounds and raced the rest of the way down the sideline for the game-winning touchdown.
|Jan 8 2018 - Case Keenum|
