"I'll always stand, just to respect it...he has that right to choose what he wants to do, whether you agree with it or not, he's standing up (by sitting down) for something he believes in."

John Isner on Kaepernick's protest: I thought that was pathetic from him. The cause he was going for, fine by me, but don't do it in that fashion. He could have found some other ways to present his voice there. A lot of NBA players have done it, and good on 'em. For him doing it in that way really irked me. I'm a big Blaine Gabbert fan now.

Loved the Hawks giving Brandon Browner a shot, but there just wasn't enough speed & change of direction left in the tank to play in '16

Joey Bosa said his mom Cheryl Bosa did not realize her Facebook comments on social media were public when she said her family should have done what Eli Manning did to the Chargers: "What do you expect from a mom?" Bosa said. "She wants what is best for me. ... It was a dumb decision. Leave it to a mom to mess up like this."

Sounds like Damarious Randall will join Sam Shields as the Packers starting cornerbacks. "Sam and D have separated themselves," cornerback coach Joe Whitt said. "But outside of that, we're looking for that fourth, fifth guy."

Joey Bosa said he did not get involved in the business part of contract negotiations. He trusted his parents and agents to do what's best because they've been through it before. He said it was strange to watch his team playing on TV. "We came to a fair deal and there's no animosity between any of us."

A few thoughts on the Dolphins' trade of DE Chris McCain to the Saints: McCain was on the roster bubble, there was a solid chance he wouldn't make the team. Miami has four veteran DEs in Mario Williams, Cameron Wake, Andre Branch and Jason Jones all ahead of McCain. The Dolphins also have to consider former No. 3 overall pick and DE Dion Jordan could take a roster spot down the road when he gets healthy. McCain was an undrafted rookie two years ago. So any draft compensation would be considered a solid turnaround. McCain has some pass-rush skill and can play a variety of special teams.
