  Redskins | Being sued for allegedly ending player's career    Mon Jul 8, 04:44 PM

Former NFL LB Barrett Green is suing the Washington Redskins, Tennessee Titans senior defensive assistant Gregg Williams and former NFL TE Robert Royal for allegedly ending his career. Green said his knee injury resulted from a bounty program in which the Redskins' coaches encouraged players to intentionally injure opponents. He said the injury was the result of an 'unusual, outrageous and an obvious cheap shot.'

  Saints | Robert Royal interested in joining team    Fri Jul 1, 04:38 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent TE Robert Royal said he would be interested in signing with the New Orleans Saints once the lockout is over.

Footballguys view: The Saints could add a veteran TE like Royal since Jeremy Shockey is now in Carolina. The team's primary weapon at the position will be second-year player Jimmy Graham, but they could always use more veteran depth behind him.
