Pete Brown, the Bengals senior vice president and co-founder of the team along with his brother Mike and father Paul Brown passed away yesterday at age 74. "Pete was the quiet one but his talent spoke volumes, said Mike Brown in a statement. "Pete was more prone to action than talk, and his contributions to the Bengals were significant. He was a fine scout and judge of prospects, a wonderful business partner and an even better brother and family member. Everyone who knew Pete cared about him and respected him. I feel his loss deeply.

Linebacker Michael Mauti was chosen by teammates as the Saints' 2017 Ed Block Courage Award winner after his remarkable comeback from ulcerative colitis. Mauti, 27, left the team last November to aggressively treat the inflammatory bowel disease that had plagued him for years. He underwent three surgeries and lost more than 50 pounds. But he returned in time for training camp, didn't make the team initially, then re-signed in October. He has returned to his role as a core special teams player and a fill-in starter with eight tackles and a forced fumble in eight games played.
