Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, left, and Detroit Lions receiver Golden Tate are the inspiration for two of this year’s most popular fantasy team names. Fantasy Football season is fast approaching, and that means it’s time for you to think about what to name your team. Last year featured plenty of terrific names — from pop-culture references to athlete name puns to much more — and the early returns from this year are promising, too.
Three years ago, the Cardinals hoped that running back Ameer Abdullah would slide to them. The Cardinals had to “settle” for David Johnson instead. Abdullah will need to win the fourth roster spot (or leapfrog one of the other three) in order to remain.

Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah of the Detroit Lions and DeMarcus Lawrence of the Dallas Cowboys — are expected to play under the franchise tag this season rather than sign long-term deals, according to a report from NFL Network. Monday is the deadline for players who have received the franchise tag to sign a multi-year extension or fulfill their one-year commitment at a salary defined by the league's franchise tag parameters. Several players including Ansah, Lawrence, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell and Los Angeles Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner are set to become free agents next offseason if they do not sign before the deadline.
Rodgers has three successful Hail Marys to his name. The first, on Dec. 3, 2015 against the Detroit Lions, kept his team's playoff hopes alive. At the American Century Championship Celebrity Golf Tournament in Lake Tahoe on Friday, Rodgers added another notch to his belt.
Darryl Rogers, whose long coaching career included four seasons as head coach of the Lions, has died at the age of 83. Rogers had spent many seasons as a college head coach but had never been in the NFL in any capacity when the Lions decided to take a chance on him in 1985. Although he was a likable character, he was not popular in Detroit, as he led the Lions to losing records in all four of his seasons before getting fired after a 2-9 start in 1988.

The following October, Kavanaugh traveled to Lewis and Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon, to deliver an annual lecture named after the Supreme Court justice for whom he once clerked—Anthony Kennedy—and has now been nominated to replace. In six years of financial disclosures, covering 2012 to 2017, Kavanaugh has revealed a life filled with speaking engagements and time spent on the court—whether it be judging moot court competitions or coaching his daughters’ youth basketball teams.
