The NFL and Twitter today announced a multi-year partnership extension that will deliver a host of new live programming, original sponsored content and more highlights to Twitter’s highly engaged audience just in time for the NFL’s 100th season.

Since announcing their first partnership agreement in 2013, the NFL has developed live programming and distributed on-demand content that captures Twitter’s unique features and appeals to its highly engaged audience.

The new deal will feature new live programming built around some of the NFL’s biggest events, more game highlights each week for fans, and unique sponsored content opportunities for brands.

• Live shows focused on NFL tentpole events – Uniquely produced for Twitter, six new live shows will capture the excitement and conversation around some of the NFL’s biggest events, including NFL Kickoff, the Thanksgiving games, the Conference Championships, the Super Bowl, the Scouting Combine and the NFL Draft while integrating entertaining conversations and trends sparked by these events on the platform.

• New content – In addition to the live shows, fans will see a host of new content throughout the year, including:

◦ Live pregame Q&As – Leading up to the kickoff of either a Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, or Monday Night Football matchup each week, a featured NFL Media personality will take over the @NFL handle for a live Q&A with fans

◦ New NFL Twitter “Moments” – curated Twitter Moments featuring the best plays and tweets every week of the season and throughout the year

◦ Custom NFL Twitter Votes – users will be invited to vote each week on the hottest topics and takes burning through the NFL Twittersphere. Results will be incorporated into NFL Twitter and NFL Network shows.

◦ The Best Touchdowns and Celebrations – Each week, the NFL will produce custom “best touchdowns” and “best touchdown celebrations” highlight reels for Twitter

“We’re excited to renew our partnership with Twitter,” said Blake Stuchin, NFL Vice President of Digital Media Business Development. “Millions of people use Twitter every day to follow their favorite teams and players and participate in conversations about the NFL. We expect these new live shows to be among the most popular programs on Twitter, while serving to drive awareness and tune-in of our biggest tentpole events of the year.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the NFL’s 100th season by kicking off a new multiyear collaboration that will include innovative ways to serve fans and our brand partners,” said TJ Adeshola, Head of US Sports Partnerships at Twitter. “Football fans around the world will now be able to engage with more NFL premium content on Twitter, which will inspire even more conversation year-round about the league.”


Predicting the Browns offensive depth chart after the 2019 NFL Draft

The Browns added seven players in the 2019 NFL Draft, but the draft impact on the offense was pretty minimal. Only one of the seven picks plays offense.

Here’s how the offensive depth chart stands after the draft.


Starter: Baker Mayfield

Backup: Drew Stanton

Bubble: Garrett Gilbert

The Browns are set at QB with Mayfield and did not address the position in the draft. Stanton returns as the veteran backup. Gilbert set the AAF on fire and could seize a roster spot if he shows enough to convince coach Kitchens to keep a third QB.

Running back

Starter: Nick Chubb

Reserves: Kareem Hunt, Duke Johnson, Dontrelle Hilliard

Competing: Devante Mays

Another position where the Browns stood on their current guys in the draft. To paraphrase John Dorsey, Duke Johnson remains on the team until he is not anymore. Hilliard showed enough as a rookie last year to stick as the deep reserve. Hunt is suspended for the first 8 games, which leaves an opening for Mays or another aspirant to get a shot.

Tight end

Starter: David Njoku

Reserves: Demetrius Harris

Competing: Orson Charles, Seth DeValve, Pharaoh Brown

Njoku enters his third year brimming with ability but still in need of consistency. Harris was signed as a free agent and figures to be the primary blocking TE, a role that will earn him some starts but also other weeks where he doesn’t play much.

At least one, and probably two, of the other holdovers will make the team. Charles has the best chance because of his ability to play fullback and H-back. It’s a big offseason for DeValve, who has done little in his two seasons in Cleveland.

Wide receiver

Starters: Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins

Reserves: Antonio Callaway

Competing: Jaelen Strong, Damion Ratley, Blake Jackson, Derrick Willies, Damon Sheehy-Guiseppe, Ishmael Hyman

The first four spots appear locked in. At least one other will make the team, with 2018 draftee Ratley having the inside edge. Special teams will be key for any in the “competing” category. No draft picks added here, either.

Offensive line

Starters (left to right): Greg Robinson, Joel Bitonio, J.C. Tretter, Austin Corbett, Chris Hubbard

Competing: Eric Kush, Kendall Lamm, Desmond Harrison, Kyle Kalis, Brad Seaton, Bryan Witzmann, David Bright, Drew Forbes

Forbes is the only offensive draft pick and he’s making a big jump from playing tackle at the FCS level to guard in the NFL. Expect him to make the practice squad. Kush is the most experienced reserve and can play both guard and center. Lamm vs. Harrison for the swing tackle spot is one of the more interesting camp battles shaping up.

Antonio brown V juju smith schuster social media Spat!

Antonio Brown may want to put down the phone. What’s your views on the whole situation? Hit me up and let me know what you think.

The star Raiders wide receiver tried to continue his public shaming of his former teammates Monday, though his latest stunt seems to have backfired.

Brown posted an Instagram showing a screenshot of a 2015 direct message from Steelers wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster, who was then at USC and asking for advice about making the NFL. Brown included the caption “……..” with a microphone emoji and the hashtag “#OnToTheNext.” If Brown thought he was outing Smith-Schuster for admitting he looked up to him, he was late to the party, as Smith-Schuster tweeted a screenshot of the conversation himself two years ago. Plus, the content of the message only paints Smith-Schuster in a kind light. the University of Southern California. I appreciate all your work. Your [sic] a great man on and off the field. Do you have any tips that can help take my game to the next level? Thanks man.”

The former teammates have been feuding since Brown ripped Smith-Schuster on Twitter on Sunday for his fumble in Week 16 last season, which cost the Steelers a chance at the playoffs.

“All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league,” Smith-Schuster later wrote in a tweet, referring to Brown. “I was genuinely happy for him too when he got traded to Oakland w/ a big contract, and now he takes shots at me on social media?” #passinterference #nfluk🇺🇸🏈🇬🇧 #nfl #nfldraft #nflrumors #nflcombine #nflnews #antoniobrown #jujusmithschuster #raiders #steelers

Is Chiefs great Jamaal Charles a Hall of Famer?

Is Chiefs great Jamaal Charles a Hall of Famer?

Charles self-diagnoses his gold-jacket viability pretty well.

RB Jamaal Charles this to say on the matter. “I mean, some of my numbers look way better than some people already in Canton…I think what’s gonna definitely haunt me is not winning a Super Bowl but I hope that people can see what type of person I was from playing football, on the field and off the field.”

will he make the Hall of Fame? It’s looking like he mIght have played his last game in the NFL.
