  • Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is giving 225 kids the chance to attend football camp -- for free. There's no truth to the rumors that the Bengals will be in attendance, even though owner Mike Brown says "the price is right." (He didn't really say that, but it wouldn't be much of a stretch if he did.)
  • Add it to the list (via the StarTribune.com): "After months of getting rained on, pounded with packed snow and flattened by heavy equipment used to fix the roof, the Metrodome's artificial turf may have to be replaced before the Vikings resume play there in August, Dome officials said Friday." We're blaming Brett Favre.
  • Good news: Aqib Talib's attorney doesn't expect there to be a quick resolution to his client's felony firearm case. In fact, it could drag on beyond the 2011 season. Bad news: Talib will likely still face disciplinary action from the NFL, and you know Roger Goodell can't wait for the lockout to end so he can't get back to randomly handing out punishments.
  • It will probably take three or four years before we know if the Falcons were right to bet the metaphorical farm on Julio Jones, but early returns are encouraging. According to reports, Jones is "way ahead of his game" at informal workouts. It's not much, but it's something.
  • Titans owner Bud Adams parted ways with Jeff Fisher in January, but Fisher says he won't think about returning to the sidelines until after the 2011 season. Hopefully, he can make that $4 million buyout he received from Tennessee stretch for another six months.
  • More former Titans news: One-time Tennessee tight end Erron Kinney is a captain with the St. Andrews Fire Department in Charleston, S.C.

Hot Routes 6.19.11: One way to end Jags blackouts

The Jags might not have had blackouts last year, but we all saw how empty the stadium is.  I know, I know.  The tickets were "sold", but no one goes to the games.

I agree with what GoJags said.  Do some research before running you mouth.  There were playoff teams with blackouts so write about what is wrong there.

Hey Ryan - the Jags had ZERO blackouts last season.  The Bucs had 8, the Raiders had 6 or 7, lots of teams had trouble selling tickets...Why mention a team that had NO blackouts last year? Perception is reality and sportswriters who don't bother with research are giving my team a bad name.  Cut it out! Just because we had one year of bad attendance doesn't make us a bad market or franchise. Thanks, Tool.
