An NFL team in Los Angeles?

The NFL-to-Los Angeles talk is picking up steam again, with Marcus Allen saying the Oakland Raiders should move there if the stadium situation is not settled and the Los Angeles Times reporting that the league is looking into possible stadium sites around Southern California. It's been 20 years since the Raiders and St. Louis Rams last played in the area. Will one of them, or another team, move to L.A. anytime soon?

Thoughts on NFL draft 1st round?

After weeks of scouting and debating, the Houston Texans decided on the obvious choice at No. 1: Jadeveon Clowney, the South Carolina defensive end considered by most to be the top talent in the 2014 NFL draft. A few minutes later, the Jacksonville Jaguars made a splash at No. 3 by selecting quarterback Blake Bortles ahead of superstar Johnny Manziel. It all came as part of a dramatic first round, which ended with Teddy Bridgewater going 32nd to the Minnesota Vikings. What are your thoughts on the evening?

Raiders sign Jones-Drew

Maurice Jones-Drew is returning to his hometown. The former Jaguars stalwart signed a three-year deal with the Oakland Raiders on Friday, where he'll likely compete with Darren McFadden for the starting running back position. Both Jones-Drew and McFadden have been hampered by injuries as of late -- they combined for only 1182 yards last season -- but if both are healthy, the Raiders could have the type of problem at running back that every team loves to have.
