Forever high on hubris, the sport is pondering extra games, playoff teams, and new franchises, perhaps in London or Los Angeles. And it feels like all are in the name of profit, not principle.
Say what you will of Wayne Hunter’s play, he has owned up to every mistake and only ever worked hard at his craft. He deserved better.

Mark Brunell will be back as Mark Sanchez’s backup and mentor after the Jets re-signed the 40-year-old veteran to a one-year deal. The Jets cut Brunell, due $1.25 million in base salary this year, on Friday but brought him back at a lesser salary.
Mark Brunell was cut by the Jets on Friday, according to multiple reports, but the 40-year-old quarterback could possibly return to the team to back up Mark Sanchez at a reduced salary.
