Adam ‘PacMan’ Jones Wants To Give Ludacris The Fade
Adam "PacMan" Jones hasn’t exactly been the NFL’s ideal model citizen during his time in the league. This latest stunt won’t result in a suspension or anything Bengals fans should worry themselves over*, but it also goes to show buddy’s not one for the social media games.

Ex-NFLers Scott Mitchell, Damien Woody to be on 'Biggest Loser' | Rumors and Rants

LeBeau on rookies, speed, big plays
Dick LeBeau’s draft day suspicion has been confirmed at Saint Vincent College. First-round pick Ryan Shazier and No. 2 selection Stephon Tuitt can and will play sooner rather than later. "I don’t want to overload their plate, but I would say they’re ahead of schedule," the Steelers’ defensive coordinator said of Shazier, an inside linebacker from Ohio State, and Tuitt, a defensive end from Notre Dame.
