    The long-awaited release of the NFL schedule will take place on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Eastern. The schedule release will, of course, be accompanied by a special on NFL Network.

    And, of course, NFL fans will obsess over it, because obsessing over the NFL during the offseason is America’s second-most popular activity after obsessing over the NFL during the season. Even though we’ve known since the end of the 2013 season which teams are playing each other, we’ll all talk about which games are on national television and which teams got their bye weeks at good times and when the big rivalry games are taking place.

    At the same time that the schedule is being announced, an NBA playoff game between Mark Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs will tip off. Cuban will not be happy if the NFL schedule gets more media attention than his team’s playoff game. But given the status of the NFL as the fattest hog in sports, that wouldn’t be surprising.

  • Terrelle Pryor more than a quarterback to Seahawks

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports16 hrs ago

    By most regards, it was a curious decision for the Seattle Seahawks to trade for former Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor. With Russell Wilson at the helm and Tarvaris Jackson entrenched as his backup, it seems Pryor would have a significant uphill battle just to crack the roster. Not if he plays a different position.

    “We’re always trying to improve competition at every position,” Seahawks general manager John Schneider said. “And we saw this as an opportunity to do that.” But the GM wasn’t confident in saying Pryor will take snaps at any other position than quarterback. Mike Florio is all for the idea and says if any coach could get a player to do this, it’d be Pete Carroll.

  • Ndamukong Suh’s presence at Lions camp should be mandatory

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports16 hrs ago

    Voluntary workouts are just that, voluntary. But there is a different feel in Detroit due to the absence of Ndamukong Suh. A team captain that is in the final year of his rookie deal, Suh is negotiating with the team to get a long-term contract and is using the only leverage he owns: holding out of camp.

    The Lions won’t place the franchise tag on their defensive end, but Mike Florio says the sense he gets from the team is that they’re afraid of Suh and are tip-toeing around to please him. Rather, Florio suggested Detroit take the opposite approach and hold Suh’s pending contract over his head so he attends camp with the new coaching staff.
