Dolphins rookie wide receiver Davante Parker made his first NFL catch during Miami’s final preseason game.
I find it funny that the mayor of Boston decided to release a statement regarding Tom Brady’s overturned suspension. Does anyone really care what a mayor thinks about football?

The NFLPA released the following statement after Judge Berman overturned Tom Brady’s suspension on Thursday.
The rights of Tom Brady and of all NFL players under the collective bargaining agreement were affirmed today by a Federal Judge in a court of the NFL’s choosing. We thank Judge Berman for his time, careful consideration of the issue and fair and just result.
This decision should prove, once and for all, that our Collective Bargaining Agreement does not grant this Commissioner the authority to be unfair, arbitrary and misleading. While the CBA grants the person who occupies the position of Commissioner the ability to judiciously and fairly exercise the designated power of that position, the union did not agree to attempts to unfairly, illegally exercise that power, contrary to what the NFL has repeatedly and wrongfully claimed.
We are happy for the victory of the rule of law for our players and our fans. This court’s decision to overturn the NFL Commissioner again should signal to every NFL owner that collective bargaining is better than legal losses. Collective bargaining is a much better process that will lead to far better results.

Snoop Dogg isn’t happy that Tom Brady’s suspension has been overturned since his Steelers will now have the face the future Hall of Famer instead of Jimmy Garoppolo.

Now that the NFL has lost their battle with Tom Brady and deflategate, commissioner Roger Goodell has decided not to attend next week’s opener between the Patriots and Steelers.
Roger Goodell will not attend next Thursday's NFL opener in Foxboro, NFL confirmed. Believes the focus should be on game/festivities.

I’m sure part of it is Goodell avoiding a lot of booing.
Patriots fans rejoice.

The NFL and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady were unable to reach a settlement on Monday and now Brady’s fate will be left in the hands of a judge.
Monday’s DeflateGate hearing ended without Tom Brady and the NFL reaching a settlement agreement, so the Patriots quarterback’s fate now lies in the hands of Judge Richard Berman.
Berman said that he’ll rule on the case in the next day or two, “certainly before Friday,” meaning the ongoing saga will reach a resolution on or before his imposed deadline of Sept. 4.
“We did not reach a settlement. The parties tried quite hard, I think,” Berman said at the conclusion of the hearing. “In some cases (a settlement) doesn’t happen. “This is one of those cases.”
Looks like Aaron Hernandez is about to go down in flames for the Boston double murder that he was allegedly involved in.
The Hartford Courant is reporting that Hernandez’s friend Alexander Bradley has been granted immunity for the double murders since he was allegedly with Hernandez when he pulled the trigger.
Lawyers for a man investigators believe was with former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez when two men were killed in Boston say he has been granted immunity by prosecutors in the 2012 double shooting.
In a court document filed Monday in a Florida lawsuit, lawyers for Alexander Bradley said they have given Hernandez’s civil lawyers “the agreement for immunity” contained in a letter between a Boston prosecutor and Bradley’s lawyer.
Bossip is reporting that Aaron Hernandez is trying to get the lawsuit from when he allegedly shot a man named Alexander Bradley in the face outside of a Miami strip club tossed since the man won’t cooperate and hand over any evidence.
Hernandez is demanding a lawsuit accusing him of shooting a man in the face outside a Miami nightclub be thrown out of court — because the man suing him is blowing off the court’s order to hand over information related to the alleged incident.
Despite the fact that Hernandez is serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd he still insists of fighting for whatever rights he has left.
It looks like deflategate has been taking it’s toll on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his wife Gisele Bundcheon.
The New York Post has the scoop, via BSO.
It’s been a difficult summer for Tom Brady, with his professional reputation suffering in the wake of deflategate.
And according to new reports the stresses of the scandal have had repercussions for the American football star’s six-year marriage to model Gisele Bundchen.
A source close to the sports star told People magazine: ‘There have been a lot of stresses in their marriage in the last year, especially during football season.’
The source described how father-of-three, 38, can be ‘nasty and cold’ when engrossed in his own problems.
‘Tom is singularly focused on his career and sometimes Gisele feels left out,’ they said. ‘There have been arguments.’
Gisele headed to Paris alone, where she was photographed wearing a burqua on a visit to a plastic surgery clinic.
According to the New York Post, Gisele allegedly underwent an eye lift and procedures to restore her breasts that she thought were ‘sagging’ following her two pregnancies.
