Cleveland Popular RB Hillis Next in Line For Big Extension?

The Browns have already locked up LT Joe Thomas with a huge deal, and now next on the list could be popular running back Peyton Hillis.

Seattle Seahawks to Re-Sign Lofa Tatupu?

I am hearing increased rumblings that Lofa Tatupu will be returning to the Seattle Seahawks before the pre-season season ends.
