Pittsburgh Steelers minority owner David Tepper, in his commencement speech at Carnegie Mellon University on Sunday, said this has been a "helluva week.'' First, he was proud to be giving the commencement speech and receive an honorary doctor degree. Next, he said: "A kid who couldn't afford to go to an NFL game until well into his 20s is on the verge of getting the NFL's approval to buy the Carolina Panthers. Not too shabby.'' That approval is expected on Tuesday at the owners meeting in Atlanta.

The Saints re-signed veteran offensive lineman Josh LeRibeus, who appeared in all 18 games for them last year as a backup guard and center. He'll face stiffer competition to make the roster this year, since the Saints signed veteran backup Jermon Bushrod, drafted two offensive linemen in Round 3 and like the potential of some other young backups. But the Saints obviously like the experience the 28-year-old brings to the table after he spent his first four seasons with the Redskins.

Young Steelers playmakers T.J. Watt and JuJu Smith-Schuster were not included in Pro Football Focus' list of the top-25 players under-25.

Former Jets QB Chad Pennington, appearing this morning on "Get Up!" with Mike Greenberg, offered big praise for Sam Darnold: "I think he has an amazing future ahead of him. I think he's in a perfect situation, going to New York with Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater. He gets a chance to be patient ... This needs to be a long-term process for Sam and the Jets, but I think they set themselves up nicely with a quarterback who can lead them in the future for a long time to come, there's no doubt about it."
