Late breaking news that no one saw coming: the NFL and the NFLPA have agreed to change the way the IR works, giving each team one exemption that allows them to re-activate a player who went on the IR earlier in the season. That's a pretty big shift, and a wise move by both sides. The two parties also agreed to the trade deadline back to week eight.
Jake is focusing on improving his performance in one very specific area this evening:
"In the final week of the preseason we just want to go out and be crisp,'' Locker said. "The last few weeks we've had a few more three-and-outs than we would like so I think we'd like to go out and sustain some drives and move the ball and put some points on the board."

Darius Reynaud may look like a lock to make the final roster to the rest of the world, but he's still sweating it out. That's an understandable way to feel after you've bounced around like Reynaud has been, but I cant see any way Reynaud doesn't make it as a return specialist with a special play or two in Chris Palmer's back pocket.
The NFL and the NFL Referees Association can't come to an agreement, which means we're going to have to watch more awful officiating for at least week one.
