  3. After taking another shot at the NFL, former Duck Darron Thomas waitsRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday | OregonLive.com

    Two days after passing in front of executives from all 32 NFL teams in Arizona, Darron Thomas was back at his day job Tuesday at an indoor soccer center 20 minutes east of Portland, taking practice repetitions reserved for a backup quarterback. Life as the off-field face but on-field reserve of the Arena Football League's Portland Thunder remains Thomas's reality in his second season with the franchise, which holds its home opener at Moda Center on Friday at 7 p.m. Sunday's brief taste of receiving a second chance in the NFL, via the league's first "Veterans Combine" for free agents in Tempe, Arizona, remains his dream -- one he still carries around just like the five regulation-sized NFL footballs sitting in his car's back seat.

  12. Let Sam's skill set be deciding factorRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Mar 24 | The Winnipeg Free Press

    The narrative that once told us Michael Sam was not being given a serious shot in pro football because he was the first openly gay player in the NFL, is now being changed to whether his unique status is affording him more chances than his skills have warranted. After going through his second NFL testing combine in as many years -- this time at the "NFL veteran combine" on Sunday -- not only is he still generating unimpressive numbers, but it appears he may be getting slower as well.
