On Saturday the Pittsburgh Steelers announced that they have signed offensive tackle Brandon Walton to their practice squad.

Baltimore Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley isn’t more motivated to shove defensive linemen to the ground because all the players selected before him in his draft class landed mega-deals. He isn’t going to protect Lamar Jackson any better on Sunday because he is on the same field as the league's highest-paid player at his position.
Matthew Stafford penned a powerful essay for The Players' Tribune website Friday in which he detailed racist behavior he experienced while with some of his teammates this spring and urged everyone to continue fighting against racial injustice.

There really can be no debate: The NFL has aced its initial efforts to practice and play amid the coronavirus pandemic. Since training camp practices began in mid-August, only seven players have produced positive test results. There have been no team outbreaks, and the only scare was caused by a contaminated private lab in New Jersey.
Let’s save ourselves some headaches for the next two months and dispense with the nonsense.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh says Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson will be a unique challenge on Sunday because of how long he holds onto the football.
The piped-in NFL crowd noise was not terribly intrusive on TV, but Sean McVay felt a little different at the stadium.
When Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott juked his way into the end zone during last week's "Sunday Night Football" matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, his celebration sent shockwaves around the league. No, he didn't dance or use the pylon as a prop — the three-time Pro Bowler simply lifted his shirt to reveal a new tattoo. Right there plastered on his belly were the words "Feed Me," complete with a spoon.
Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule hopes his team can generate pressure on Tom Brady in a Week 2 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians has not hesitated to call out Tom Brady publicly so far this season. According to the coach, that’s not a sign of a poor relationship.

There have been many different approaches throughout the league during the opening weekend … with some teams electing to stay in the locker rooms while other teams had players kneel, lock arms or show other ways to demonstrate before games.
There was much criticism levied towards the Green Bay Packers for their strategy during the 2020 NFL Draft. Green Bay traded up in the first round to draft a project of a quarterback after getting all the way to the NFC Championship Game. They took a running back in the second round despite boasting one of the better run games in the NFL last year between Aaron Jones and Jamal Williams, going against the grain in regards to how valuable running backs are in the modern offense.
All in all, it seemed like a bad offseason for a team still starting one of the best quarterbacks ever in Aaron Rodgers. Yet the Packers came out in Week 1 and wiped the damn floor with the Minnesota Vikings with no trouble whatsoever. This was almost entirely due to the play of that same Rodgers, who played as well as he ever had and made his usual array of jaw-dropping throws that nobody else in the NFL this side of Patrick Mahomes could even think about attempting, much less completing.
I mean, look at this. Good god, man.
The San Francisco 49ers suffered a surprising loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1, and Jerry Rice isn’t happy.
The Niners legend was one of the few allowed in the stadium to watch Sunday’s game. He told 95.7 The Game on Monday that the Niners’ play didn’t bother him as much as the team’s attitude.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is the NFL's all-time pass attempts leader.
Brees entered Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome second on the all-time list with 10,161 attempts. He surpassed Pro Football Hall of Fame member Brett Favre (10,169) after his ninth pass attempt in the first half.
D’Andre Swift scored a touchdown in his NFL debut with the Detroit Lions on Sunday, but it will be the touchdown he didn’t score that haunts him for quite some time.
The Lions were trailing 27-23 late in the fourth quarter when Matthew Stafford drove them into the red zone. With 11 seconds left in the game, Swift got free down the sideline and should have had an easy game-winning touchdown. He dropped a perfect pass from Stafford.
All the inspiration Washington needed Sunday came from its coach.
Ron Rivera is undergoing treatment for cancer. The coach had a planned IV at half of the team’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday.
Is the salary cap real? Maybe not in the sense most NFL fans think of it. Certainly not in the context of what it means to the New Orleans Saints, who view it as a problem worth solving rather than a box to work within.
That was proven when they reached an agreement with running back Alvin Kamara on a five-year, $75 million contract extension.
