Catching up with Cincinnati Bengals legend Chad Johnson at Super Bowl LIV
As this Super Bowl weekend whirred about him, Johnson slowed down long enough to duck into another locker room. Still bald. Still walking the line between back-of-the-class mischief and front-of-the-reality TV tabloids outrageous. Always a click away from a war between capital letters.

Chargers QB search: The Andy Dalton fallback plan
So far this year I’ve been going through some options as to who the LA Chargers could target as their quarterback next season. This has included my write-up on Teddy Bridgewater (don’t do it), Tua Tagovailoa (don’t do it), the current QB situation for all 32 teams (LA’s not in a great position), and some potential destinations for Philip Rivers (including the Chargers).
