center Frank Ragnow rattled off a slew of names, thanking those who helped him become the NFL's highest-paid player at the position.

The Pro Bowl center was collected and composed as he shouted out the Ford family, his agents, former Lions coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn, college and high school coaches, his fiancé and many more.

When Ragnow mentioned his mother and late father, though, he got choked up. Jon Ragnow died of a heart attack during the 2016 football season.


Players can't be cut for vaccine refusal

An NFL team can't release a player simply because he is not vaccinated for COVID-19, a person with direct knowledge of the league's directive told The Associated Press on Friday.

Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane hypothetically suggested this week that he'd do so if it would provide more freedom within the team facilities for meetings and offseason programs.


RT James put on non-football injury list

Saints add Huggins to depleted D-line

METAIRIE, La. (AP) The New Orleans Saints have signed defensive tackle Albert Huggins in a move that addresses a position where the club lost two prominent regulars this offseason.

Patriots sign undrafted K Nordin

BOSTON (AP) The Patriots have signed rookie kicker Quinn Nordin, adding some depth prior to beginning their offseason workout program.

Nordin becomes the first undrafted rookie signed by New England following last week's draft. The Patriots have had at least one rookie free agent make their 53-man opening day roster for 17 consecutive seasons, the third-longest streak in the NFL behind the Chargers (24) and Colts (22).


WR Metcalf set to race elite sprinters

The newest sprinter in the game is tall just like world-record holder Usain Bolt and has quite an explosive burst - off the line of scrimmage, anyway.
