There is news from across the board today for the nightly open thread.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight's thread is pretty wide open. Not a ton of newsworthy material out there today other than the new NFL-CBS Thursday Night Football deal and a comically angry press conference from Broncos front office man John Elway.

Asante Samuel was released by the Falcons today as a cap casualty. Cue the clamor for the Titans to sign him...

The biggest event of the day was, of course, national signing day for college athletics. Lots of big news for you NCAA fans out there. Noles is probably already working these youngsters into his 2017 Mock Drafts upcoming.

Sorry for more soccer news, but I found this particularly interesting too. You'll all (mostly) be getting into it again with the world cup coming up this year, so no whining!

In other news, Peyton Manning is so broken up over his Super Bowl loss...
