The NFL Draft could be coming to a city near you

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.

Browns tag Mack as transition player; No franchise tag for Ward

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.

Dallas coach Lindy Ruff gets career win 600 against old club, Buffalo

When Lindy Ruff was an NHL hockey player for the Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers, he gained a reputation as a player for his toughness, character and hard work on the ice as a left winger/defenseman.

He brought that same mentality behind the bench as one of the top coaches in the league.

Monday night, his Dallas Stars team defeated his former club, the Sabres, 3-2. The win earned the 54-year-old Ruff his 600th career win. Overall his record as a coach is 600-454-88 in 16 years.

Ruff was the head coach at Buffalo for 15 years, from the 1997-98 season until the middle of the 2012-2013 season. On February 20, 2013, the Sabres announced that Ruff had been relieved of his coaching duties. That ended his tenure as the NHL’s longest active-serving coach with one team and he was second only to Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA as one of the longest-employed coaches in all of the four major sports in North America (NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB).

The Washington Redskins have hired one of their former quarterbacks to help decide roster moves.

58-year-old Doug Williams was hired Monday to become a personnel executive to work with general manager Bruce Allen on making roster decisions.

Williams, who last season was the head football coach at Grambling University, played with Tampa Bay and Washington in the NFL and also in the United States Football League (USFL).

From 1986-89, he was the Redskins signal-caller. Williams retired with a 5-9 record as Redskins starter (8-9, counting playoffs) and a 38-42-1 record as a regular season starter (42-45-1, including 7 playoff starts). He had 100 passing touchdowns, and 15 rushing touchdowns, in 88 NFL games.

He is considered to be one of the 80 Greatest Redskins of all-time.

NFL umpire Roy Ellison has been suspended by the league for one game without pay for making a “profane and derogatory statement to a Washington Redskins player.

The NFL announced on Friday that Ellison will not work a game this weekend as punishment for words directed at left tackle Trent Williams during last week’s Redskins’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Williams told league officials he was called vulgar names by Ellison and did nothing to provoke it.

Both Ellison and Williams are black.
