The National Football League usually has its annual draft in New York City.

But the league is currently inviting cities to put up bids to see who is interested in hosting the event.

This week, the NFL invited Chicago, Los Angeles and New York to make their presentations to host, but no one emerged as the front-runner.

It has been reported that more than a dozen cities have shown interest in being a host in 2015. They include: Boston, Canton, Cleveland, Green Bay, Houston, Nashville, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

The NFL says it’ll chose a site sometime this summer.

The National Football League is doing its best to put excitement back into the Pro Bowl.

Last year, it was no longer AFC vs. NFC but instead, it was the Jerry Rice team against the Deion Sanders team.

The next Pro Bowl will have a new wrinkle as well.

The next game will be played at the site of the Super Bowl in greater Phoenix area of Glendale, Arizona.

The Pro Bowl will remain a week before the Super Bowl and the format will stay the same as last year.

The Pro Bowl will move back to Hawaii in 2016.

The Cleveland Browns are one of the few NFL teams who rarely uses the transition tag on a player.

They’ve applied it only once in the 20-year existence of the tag and that was yesterday.

The special player is All-Pro center Alex Mack for the 2014 season.

The move means that Browns have five days to match any offer for him.

If he stays in Cleveland and plays under the transition tag, Mack would receive a guaranteed $10.039 million this season which is the average salary of the top 10 offensive lineman in the National Football League. Any team that signs him will not owe Cleveland any compensation.

The team also announced on Monday that it will not put the franchise tag on Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward. It is expected that he will test the free agent market.

The Grambling University has had a long and historic football program.

Eddie Robinson was the longtime coach there and sent several players to the National Football League: Buck Buchanan, Gary “Big Hands” Johnson, Doug Williams, Paul “Tank” Younger, Willie Brown, Willie Davis, James Harris, Charlie Joiner and Everson Walls.

All of those former players must be shaking their heads about what is happening at one of the top historically black colleges in the United States.

There is turmoil brewing between the football team and the school’s administration over several issues like traveling to away games on busses, a football stadium that needs repairs and the firing of football coaches.

This season alone, the Tigers have had three head coaches. Doug Williams was fired after two games, George Ragsdale was replaced last Thursday by Dennis “Dirt’ Winston.

Grambling officials met this past weekend in an effort to solve problems with the football players and to avoid any more game forfeits.

The officials included university president Frank Pogue, athletic director Aaron James and Winston.

On Saturday, the football players refused to travel to play at Jackson State and thus forfeited the game.

Grambling is planning to play this coming Saturday’s game at home against Texas Southern. The game is very important to the university because its their annual High School Day, which draws in many prospective students from around the Louisiana region.
