The NFL Season starts tonight with the Falcons heading to Philly to take on the defending Super Bowl Champs. Here are the major offseason story lines. The Bears picked up A-ROB, They also traded for Khalil Mack and then gave him a massive contract extension. The Packers gave Aaron Rodgers a record breaking contract proving they want him for the rest of his career, which we already all expected. The Redskins lost their rookie RB, Derrius Guice. The Eagles start the season without Carson Wentz. The drama surrounding Le'Veon Bell is continuing into the season and his teammates have spoken out about this. He won't be playing week 1 and he will be probably missing more than that because he refuses to report to the team because he doesn't like the Franchise Tag. I am sick of this drama, you are getting paid 14.4 Million dollars which is an insane amount just to play a sport for 16 weeks. Grow the hell up and be a teammate and show up to your team. Anyway welcome to the 2018/19 season HERE WE GO.

Jon Jones tests positive for Roids after his UFC 214 drug test. The steroid he used helped him keep muscle mass while cutting weight is the report we read. He should be out for 4 years due to this slip up after so many mistakes in his career, he tainted his whole legacy. Not only did he ruin his legacy he ruined DC's by being on something handing DC his 2nd career loss and ruined their trilogy. What a shame and a waste of godly talent.
