The news that Ryan Tannehill signed a six-year extension with the Miami Dolphins to the tune of a whopping $96 million — with a reported $46 million guaranteed — obviously raises the bar for quarterback salaries in the NFL, particularly those in the upper echelon angling for a new deal.

Pete Carroll Has Different Take on Bruce Irvin's Atlanta Comment

In high school it was easy for coaches to control what their players said. The ever present threat of running till you puke was a deterrent from saying anything coach would not like to the wrong people. In college it wasn't as easy, but it was still possible to keep guys from saying too much to the press. However, in the NFL it is not so easy, but that doesn't stop many coaches from...
