Between The Posts: Another Casualty

Your nightly OT open thread!

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon became the latest big name player to be taken out for the 2014 season even begins. He suffered a torn achilles tendon during practice, ending his campaign prematurely. Let's hope the Titans can avoid any circumstances like this one.

In other NFC South news, Panthers QB Cam Newton said his recently named "sorry group of WR's" will surprise people in 2014 by stepping up. I don't know about that, but I do know I'm happy that the Titans aren't in the running for the worst WR corps in the NFL anymore. It feels like they were in that mix for a long time before the last few seasons....

Newton also is apparently taking a close look at the recent contract extension signed by 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick. I think more big time deals may look like this in the future, if a little more generous to the player rather than the team.

That's all for this evening. Have an awesome Wednesday night, and we'll be here to kick off the first World Cup match tomorrow with an open thread.
