The story of how Brandon Browner finally made it to the Super Bowl

PHOENIX -- A year ago on Super Bowl media day, Brandon Browner spoke with just a single reporter, from his home in California, while his Seattle Seahawks teammates sat at podiums and held court with the international press, the toasts of New York mere days away from winning the Super Bowl. Browner was suspended indefinitely by the NFL at the time, unsure if or when he would be granted free agency with his contract expiring, trying to remain upbeat at a time when his teammates were about to experience the pinnacle of their careers without him. That includes guys like Richard Sherman, who Browner still considers "like a brother." So you can only imagine what Tuesday was like for Browner, who,

Former KU football player, actor Keith Loneker Sr. dies

Glen Mason coached football for 35 years, and he never has had anyone quite like Keith Loneker Sr. “He is the most powerful offensive lineman that I ever coached,” the former Kansas coach said in a phone interview Thursday. Loneker, who played tackle for the KU football team from 1989-92 before establishing careers in the NFL and with film, died Thursday morning at age 46. His son, Keith Jr., posted on his Instagram page in December that his father had been diagnosed with cancer the previous month. Mason credits Loneker as one reason for the Jayhawks’ turnaround in the early 1990s. The team’s most glaring deficiency was a lack of Big Eight-caliber offensive linemen, and that began to change

Jaguars rookie wide receiver Kenneth Walker makes up for lost time with off-site film sessions

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Imagine battling the pressure of studying for your final college exams and dealing with the anxiety that comes with missing an early stage of your NFL development at the same time. Forced to stay in Los Angeles while his fellow Jaguars rookies took part in drills on the other side of the country, wide receiver Kenneth Walker had no choice but to balance his school studies with his daily football film cram sessions. The UCLA alum was forced to delay his on-site NFL training due to the league's graduation rule. Rookies aren't allowed to attend the offseason program until their final exams are completed. UCLA uses the quarters system as oppose to semesters, which extends ex

C.J. Anderson Revitalized

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – C.J. Anderson dug deep into the archive of his career highlights to find the play that perfectly exemplifies why he’s so excited for the offensive changes the Denver Broncos have made this offseason. He found that play midway through the 2014 season, on a sunny November afternoon in Oakland. Lined up in shotgun alongside Peyton Manning on a third down, Anderson caught a short pass behind the line of scrimmage, and then broke five tackles as he raced down one sideline and cut diagonally across the field on his way to a 51-yard touchdown. He’s watched that play, and plenty of other moments from his first two years in the NFL, as he’s prepared himself for the 2017 season. And

Bengals rookie running back Joe Mixon “looks like a beast” in practices

Cincinnati Bengals rookie running back Joe Mixon has reportedly come as advertised, looking like a potential Pro Bowl running back during OTAs and minicamp practices. Optimism runs high during this time of year for every club, with positive reports always circling about players who are rehabing, or the performances of new acquisitions in the limited viewable scope that comes from OTA and minicamp drills. Still, a recent report from The MMQB’s Albert Breer, says he’s hearing especially exceptional things about the most enigmatic player in Cincinnati’s group of 11 draft picks this year. Bengals running back Joe Mixon hasn’t wasted any time impressing his coaches. His high-end acceleration and

Former LSU DE Tashawn Bower earns second-highest free-agent haul

According to analyst Gil Brandt, Bower will make $45,000 bonus in his first contract with the Minnesota Vikings. BYU defensive end Harvey Langi pocketed a $115,000 bonus from New England. That contract is believed to be the largest contract for an undrafted free-agent in history. Among those tied with Bower include Baylor wide receiver K.D. Cannon (New England) and Southern Mississippi defensive end Dylan Bradley of Minnesota. Bower emerged during his senior season as he switched from defensive end to a hybrid defensive end/linebacker position in LSU coordinator Dave Aranda’s 3-4 defense. He notched 23 tackles, 5 1/2 tackles for losses and 4 sacks. If the Vikings needed any assuran
