So where does this leave us? If the Glennons intended to name their child Brady after Tom Brady, then it seems logical they’d just be open about it. But then why would Winston say Glennon wanted his son born on Tom Brady’s birthday?
We’re having a hard time believing Brady’s name isn’t Brady-influenced in some way. The popularity of the name Brady has soared ever since Tom started winning Super Bowls.
Mike Glennon can deny it all he wants, but that baby was named after Tom Brady.
The artificial turf at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio, will be replaced for next year’s Hall of Fame Game, according to a source with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. All logos will be stitched into the surface so there will not be any issues like there were Sunday when the field was deemed unfit for the Packers-Colts preseason opener.
In addition, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported there is a thorough ongoing review regarding all aspects as to what caused the paint issue that led to the game being canceled.
The Raiders’ first unofficial depth chart of the 2016 season was released Monday with no real surprises, although it was intriguing that the defense was listed as a 4-3 base. They have flashed both 3-4 and 5-2 looks in camp. Still, fullback Jamize Olawale was listed as a starter ahead of four-time Pro Bowl selection Marcel Reece, who has three games remaining on a four-game suspension, and tight end Lee Smith was ahead of Clive Walford, who is still rounding into shape after his offseason ATV accident. Strong safety Karl Joseph and defensive tackle Jihad Ward were the only rookies listed as first-stringers. They were Oakland’s first- and second-round draft picks. — Paul Gutierrez

Even though he turns 35 in December, Philip Rivers has thrown the ball with some zip through the first week of training camp. Rivers credits his live arm to a conversation he had with Peyton Manning about staying healthy late in his career. Rivers limited the amount he threw during the offseason, and he also will be on a pitch count during training camp. By limiting his throws, Rivers should help keep his arm fresh for the duration of the season. — Eric D. Williams
