Desmond Trufant CB from the University of Washington. This is a great pick for the Falcons as he has speed to burn. He has the ability to be a shut down corner on an already solid defense. As a senior he was a first team All Pac-12 selection. UW was ranked No.16 in the nation (second in the Pac-12) in pass defense (188.9 yards allowed per game) at the end of the regular 2012 college football season. ...Read more

Statistics show that after just two years of retirement 78% of NFL players are “financially stressed”…in other words broke. This is a fact that is sadly disturbing, and often occurs due to poor spending habits and lack of long-term planning, but another major component to this financial instability is getting and making poor investment choices. Last week, Florida financial advisor Jeffrey Rubin was banned from the securities industry for life after putting a group of current and former NFL players in an extremely risky investment that ultimately resulted in over $40million in losses. The group of players cheated out of millions included: Santana Moss, Plaxico Burress, Samari Rolle, Greg Olsen, Devin Thomas, Terrell Owens, Santonio Holmes, Fred Taylor, Jevon Kearse, Kyle Orton, and Clinton Portis many of whom by coincidence or not were represented by NFL Agent Drew Rosenhaus. Rubin, who operated Pro Sports Financial a “concierge service” that offered everything from investment advice to bill payment services, steered the players...Read more

Three weeks ago at this time, the Alabama Crimson Tide was coming off a blowout victory over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at the BCS Championship game, celebrating the programs third national title in four seasons and reminding viewers across the country that we live in a football world dominated by the Southeastern Conference – better known as the SEC.
Whatever wasn’t spoken after the 42-14 rout – the SEC’s seventh consecutive BCS Championship victory, can easily be summarized this week as the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers get cozy in the Big Easy for Super Bowl XLVII.
When the respective teams take the field Sunday on football’s biggest stage, there will more than 20 combined players with ties to the SEC.
In case you weren't aware, the Pro Bowl was played on Sunday. The NFC won that game scoring a lot of points to the AFCs a lot, but not nearly enough points. In the week leading up to the Pro Bowl, the internet was abuzz with people telling us why they wouldn't watch, why the Pro Bowl was a joke, and why the NFL, if it had any self-respect would cancel it. And then, on Sunday, those same people helped earn the Pro Bowl a TV rating equivalent to an NBA finals game. Clearly, the Pro Bowl is a polarizing topic, so let's talk about it, shall we? My first thought is: who cares? The Pro Bowl is no different from the NBA, NHL, and MLB All-Star games. They aren't, in my mind, meant to be serious replicas of an NFL game. They are, for the most part, held for money and for fans....Read more
