Between water polo and beach volleyball matches, there is football to discuss and note:
Kyle Boller apparently has decided to call it a career. A day after signing with the Chargers, the former Ravens first-round draft pick reportedly has retired. For whatever his deficiencies as a quarterback, you should give him credit for not trying to spread blame around to explain a bad Sunday. Wonder how far he can throw from his knees these days?
With the Steelers able to sign Antonio Brown to a new contract but still not fellow wide receiver Mike Wallace, some speculated about Pittsburgh trading Wallace. ESPN.coms Jamison Hensley says this would make no sense. Among the reasons: Unless the Steelers were to get a first- or second-round draft pick in exchange, which seems unlikely, they can deal with the worst-case scenario: Wallace leaves via free agency after the season and Pittsburgh gets a third-round pick as compensation.
If the Browns sale to the Haslam family goes through, the team shouldnt ever run out of gas. The Haslams own Pilot and Flying J truck stopsgas stationsconvenience stores. With 550 of them, the Haslams company brought in 18 billion in revenue last year. And you can bet the Browns stadium would have clean restrooms, too.
