The NFL is looking into whether footballs were properly inflated by the Patriots during Sunday's AFC Championship Game.
We've had Spygate and now we have Deflategate. The NFL requires game balls inflated with between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds of air. Anything less than that could help increase grip for Tom Brady in the passing game, and the officials during Sunday's game thought there was reason to take several balls out of play and weigh them. A source told the Indy Star that if the NFL's investigation confirms purposefully deflated balls, it could result in lost draft picks for the Patriots. Of course, the Colts had no shot in this game if it were played with a beach ball as they got absolutely hammered 45-7. Jan 19 - 8:19 AM

The league will host an "NFL Veteran Combine" on March 22.

It will take place in Arizona's during the league meetings. The event — the first of its kind — is self-explanatory. It's a Combine, only for veteran NFL players. Per Profootballtalk, it will allow veteran free agents to "go through the same kinds of drills and testing draft prospects go through in Indianapolis, with representatives of all 32 clubs on hand." It's an excellent idea in a league where some players slip through the cracks far too quickly. We wouldn't expect too many players to get deals they otherwise wouldn't through the Combine, but it should help prolong the careers of at least a few worthy cases.

The league-commissioned Mueller Report determined the NFL never saw the video of Ray Rice knocking out his fiancée before it was publicly released on September 8.

Predictably, the "independent" report takes the tone of a wrist slapping. "We found no evidence that anyone at the NFL had or saw the in-elevator video before it was publicly shown," the report said. "We also found no evidence that a woman at the NFL acknowledged receipt of that video in a voicemail message on April 9, 2014." The report did say the league "should have done more with the info it had," and "should have taken additional steps to obtain all available information." All in all, the report doesn't change the tone of the debate, or shed any real light on what happened.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Roger Goodell told the Chargers, Raiders and Rams this week there will not be a team moving to Los Angeles in 2015.

This helps to explain why the Chargers announced on Tuesday they would be staying in San Diego for at least one more season. The Rams and Raiders could still file a relocation application after January 1, but those applications would not have the league's support and almost certainly would fail. The safe money is still on at least one team moving to Los Angeles in the near future, perhaps even as soon as 2016.

The NFL will begin testing for human growth hormone on Monday.

The NFLPA agreed to a new drug policy last month that included HGH testing for the first time ever. Five players on eight teams will now be tested each week of the season. A first positive test for steroids, HGH, stimulants or other banned substances will result in a four-game ban. A second violation is a 10-game suspension, while a third positive test will be a two-year ban. Player appeals will be handled by an independent arbitrator. The league's new recreational drug policy will also include additional steps.

Yahoo's Rand Getlin reports the 2015 NFL Draft will be held in Chicago.

The draft had been held in New York every year since 1965. The league will now make it a road show as it looks to further monetize its spring cash cow. The draft is tentatively expected to be held April 30-May 2, which would be a week earlier than last year.

The 2015 NFL draft will be held from April 30-May 2.

The 2014 draft didn't begin until May 8, drawing complaints from fans, media and teams. So the 2015 version is up a week, and will be held in either Los Angeles or Chicago instead of its usual Radio City Music Hall location. All the NCAA prospects can be tracked in our NFL Draft section.

A law enforcement official tells the Associated Press that NFL security chief Jeffrey Miller received the Ray Rice video in April.

It appears the NFL may have found its scapegoat, but it's unclear if that's the tact the league will take. It defies logic that Miller would either knowingly not watch the video, or fail to alert commissioner Roger Goodell if he received it. For his part, Miller "unequivocally" denies receiving the tape. The league has repeatedly denied seeing the video before TMZ released it earlier this month. This story isn't going away any time soon.

The NFL and NFLPA have officially agreed to an overhauled drug policy.

The two sides have agreed to "wide-ranging improvements" to their policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Among other things, the league will now test for HGH and start that process this season. Final details of the new agreement on the substance-abuse policy are still being worked out. The NFL announced Wes Welker, Orlando Scandrick, and Stedman Bailey can rejoin their teams immediately. A first positive test for steroids, HGH, stimulants or other banned substances will result in a four-game ban. A second violation is a 10-game suspension, while a third positive test will be a two-year ban.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL and NFLPA are "hoping to finalize" a new drug agreement by Thursday night.

Per Schefter, it would be an agreement in which "suspensions will wind up being overturned." It remains unclear if that includes Josh Gordon, whose most recent positive test came during the 2013 league year. It's been reported the new agreement will only address positive tests from the 2014 league year.

Updating a previous item, NFL player reps will not vote on a proposed overhauled drug policy on Tuesday.

Josh Gordon and Wes Welker owners continue to anxiously wait. It was originally reported that the 32 player reps would vote Tuesday morning before it got pushed back to Tuesday night. Now, it won't be voted on altogether on Tuesday. There were reportedly "issues with the proposal" that made it not worth voting on at this time. The complicated new policy focuses on HGH testing, DUI punishments, and more leniency in the testing for marijuana.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the NFLPA will have its 32 player reps vote on a proposed overhauled drug policy on Tuesday.

The NFL and NFLPA have yet to reach an agreement on all issues, but it's close enough for a vote. The proposed policy will include HGH testing for the first time in league history, in addition to raising limits for marijuana testing. One sticking point apparently remains, as owners across the league are complaining about the league potentially reducing the Josh Gordon and Wes Welker suspensions. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed re: Gordon and Welker.
Mon, Sep 8, 2014 08:47:00 PM

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports a "tentative agreement" over the use of third-party arbitration for appeals of PED and HGH violations that were not caused by a positive test has been reached.

In other words, Roger Goodell would give up the power to unilaterally rule on suspension appeals related to situations like the BALCO or Biogenesis cases. Though this agreement clears one major hurdle in the negotiation process, the two sides still need to hash out how to deal with players charged with but not convicted of DUIs. Even though obstacles remain, the general feeling is a deal is close, with one source telling Pro Football Talk, "I'm expecting an announcement at any time."

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the NFL and NFLPA recently began formal talks to raise marijuana test levels.

Currently, the NFL's threshold of THC levels to trigger a positive marijuana test is 15 nanograms per milliliter. The NFL got that number from the World Anti-Doping Agency a few years ago, but WADA raised its level to 150 ng/ml last summer. MLB's threshold is 50 ng/ml. Just as Ray Rice's case forced the NFL to stiffen penalties against domestic violence, Josh Gordon's will likely be the one that gets the NFL to soften its stance against marijuana.

The NFL has stiffened its penalties for domestic violence, instituting a six-game suspension for a first-time offense and "lifetime ban" for a second.

It's a direct response to the blistering criticism the league received after banning Ray Rice for only two games earlier this summer. Commissioner Roger Goodell admitted he "didn't get it right" in the Rice case. Now, a first time domestic-violence offense is no longer viewed as less serious than smoking marijuana. For a "lifetime" ban, an offender can "petition for reinstatement after one year."
