Tom Brady on the sidelines looks like a Madden 18 glitch

Tom Brady didn’t play in the Patriots’ first preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t ready.

Just look at him on the sidelines. Yeah, he doesn’t have a football, but look at his agility and awareness in front of all the imaginary defenders coming at him. Put him in, coach! Julian Edelman seems to enjoy it.

Brady kind of looks like a glitch from the latest edition of Madden. We hope they get a patch for this before the release date, as cool as this kind of looks.

Glennon struggled, and that’s the nicest thing we can say about it. He completed just two of eight passes for 20 yards. Trubisky, on the other hand, came in with 1:42 remaining in the first half and ran the team’s two-minute drill with ease.

He looked in command of the offense and hit veteran Victor Cruz on a 2-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds on the clock:

In the second half, he looked comfortable and accurate throwing on the run, executing a 75-yard scoring drive on the Bears’ first possession:

He got the team in position for a fourth-quarter field goal, too:

Glennon wasn’t nearly so lucky. His second pass of the game was a pick-six. Poor line play didn’t help, but he never got into a rhythm, and it showed in his quarterback rating, which was zero:

But to understand how the NFL reached the point that it accused the NFLPA of victim blaming, we have to first rewind the clock a little bit. Early Wednesday morning, Yahoo! Sports published a report that said Elliott’s accuser, an ex-girlfriend, spoke to a friend via text about the possibility of blackmailing the running back with sex videos involving herself and Elliott.redskins_007_3367fdd4e46f3691-180x180

Veteran receiver Lance Moore announces retirement

The undrafted pass-catcher out of Toledo joined the Saints in 2006 after spending his rookie season as a free-agent addition with the Browns. Over the past two seasons, Moore operated as a role player for the Steelers and Lions before signing with the Falcons last week. Projected to push Justin Hardy for snaps in the slot, Moore was a long shot to make Atlanta’s roster.

He won’t be crowned in Canton, but Moore enjoyed the kind of career plenty of NFL players would be thrilled with: 10-plus seasons, a highlight reel of big plays, a Super Bowl ring and the chance to team with one of the game’s finest quarterbacks in Brees. Moore has plenty to look back on.

Last week, Buccaneers backup quarterback Mike Glennon introduced a child into the world, and named him Brady.

Brady was born on August 3, which just so happens to be the same day four-time Super Bowl championship quarterback Tom Brady was born 39 years ago. It seems likely that the Glennons named their child after the Patriots quarterback, because, well, it just makes sense.

The Glennon camp is denying these allegations, but a certain teammate provides some interesting insight.

“Mike said he didn’t name it after Brady,” Jameis Winston told MMQB on Saturday. “But I know he was hoping that baby was born on Tom Brady’s birthday. I know that for a fact.”

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys were excited about undrafted rookie wide receiver Andy Jones in the spring, and he has done nothing to disappoint so far in training camp. He won’t crack the top three spots held by Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley, but considering the time Tony Romo is putting in with Jones, you can see the veteran quarterback likes what he sees. Jones is not the fastest, but he can create separation and does not drop any passes. “It’s not too big for him,” said executive vice president Stephen Jones. “And certainly all you have to do, he’s one of those that you look at in a uniform and go, ‘Wow.’ That’s pretty good and then he goes and plays and it’s still really good.” — Todd Archer

New York Giants

Quarterback Eli Manning is having a strong training camp. It has been 11 days since his last interception, and with star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. back after missing several days with a leg injury, the offense has really been humming. Manning and Beckham tore up the defense Monday. On Tuesday, the defense will be in search of a little redemption after a rough few days. — Jordan Raanan
