Make a tackle, suffer a stroke. Yikes.

Good Morning, Broncos fans! As we've discussed here before, it's been a particularly rough go for the Bills and their fans of late.

The team's founder and owner, Ralph Wilson, passed away, presumably accelerating a move out of Buffalo.

HOF passer Jim Kelly, who is among those trying to keep the team in Western New York, is facing a grueling cancer battle.

STFU, Holmgren

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Wait, did we suggest yesterday that there would be little in the way of news out of Dove Valley? Whoops.

Broncos kick off conditioning today

Good Morning, Broncos fans! The 2014 NFL Draft is still 2.5 weeks away, so there likely won't be much in the way of real news for the forseeable future.

As always, we'll make do as best we can; today's start of Denver's offseason conditioning program will have to suffice.

Perhaps we'll hear that Peyton Manning and (an uncovered) Emmanuel Sanders are developing a nice rapport.

Raiders likely to cut Pryor

Good Morning, Broncos fans! The rapid fall of Terrelle Pryor is apparently about to reach its conclusion.

According to Alex Marvez, the Raiders plan to cut the young man who opened the 2013 season as their starting quarterback, unless they're able to trade him by tomorrow.
