    NAACP calls for boycott of NFL, Atlanta Falcons

    Kaepernick still has not been signed by an NFL team this offseason with most observers of the opinion that the league’s teams have blackballed the quarterback for starting the national anthem protest last summer. The NAACP, a well-known civil rights organization founded founded over a century ago, wants to boycott the entire NFL, but will also have an Atlanta-based initiative. “There will be no football in the state of Georgia if Colin Kaepernick is not on a training camp roster and given an opportunity to pursue his career,” said Gerald Griggs of the Atlanta NAACP branch. Griggs says his organization will stage a large-scale protest at the Falcons’ new stadium when the regular season begins.


    Brady has TD in preseason debut as Pats fall to Texans 27-23

    Associated Press HOUSTON -- Tom Brady threw a touchdown pass in his first game since winning the Super Bowl on the same field and the New England Patriots fell to the Houston Texans 27-23 in a preseason game on Saturday night. Brady, who sat out last week, was 6 of 9 for 67 yards while directing the offense for two possessions. The Patriots punted on their first drive before Brady connected with Rex Burkhead on a 22-yard touchdown throw that tied it at 7-7 early in the second quarter.

    Bucs sign a tackle, waive a tackle

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have claimed tackle Marquis Lucas off and waived tackle Austin Albrecht. They signed Albrecht just two days ago. Life is dark and full of errors. Lucas was an undrafted free agent out of West Virginia last year, and has spent time with the Buffalo Bills, Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons since then, but wasn’t on any team’s regular season roster. The Bucs could use some tackle depth with Demar Dotson out for now, as it’s still unclear how serious Dotson’s injury really is. Lucas would give them that, though it’s unlikely for an undrafted free agent signed this late in the preseason to actually make a regular season roster—he might stick on the practice squad, though.
