- Stephen Tulloch was cut by the Lions Tuesday. He was kept on the active roster until he passed a physical, at which point he was released. (This move cost $500K towards Detroit’s 2016 cap.) If nothing else, it proves that you can’t discount the effect of the double-check.
- Boston College announced it will retire the jerseys of Matt Ryan and Luke Kuechly at separate games during the 2016 season.
- They will join the ranks of Art Donovan & Doug Flutie in BC lore.

If you want to watch the whole ceremony, and understand Icelandic, here’s a link.
