    The Washington Nationals announced a huge payday for Stephen Strasburg today. $175 Million, with a 7-year extension and more trimmings than a Thanksgiving dinner. Soon, they’ll be singing “buy me some peanuts and Crackerjacks…no seriously, we’re broke”.

Sam Bradford, notable star of the injury reserve list, former Rams quarterback, and current starting (?) quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles has returned to training camp, after requesting a trade and being fashionably absent from this year’s training camp.
