NFL Boilers: Neal taking on bigger role in Week 6
Mike Neal's career has blossomed in his fourth season in Green Bay, and a move to linebacker seemed to help propel him.
The former Boilermaker defensive tackle was much talked about over the weekend, as a potential breakout player with Packers' linebacker Clay Matthews sidelined due to injury.
Neal doesn't think he can sneak up on anyone these days.
"You know what? It's best for me to keep myself below the clouds," Neal told the Journal Sentinel. "I don't like to get a big head about anything. If I'm a secret weapon to teams, then I'm that. If they have to scheme against me, then that's on them."
Years before the Saints let a win get away in New England, they let a player get away to New England.
And that player, Rob Ninkovich, is happy to have found a long-term home with the Patriots.
You'll probably recall that New Orleans tried to turn Ninkovich into a long-snapper in a last-ditch effort to try to keep him in 2009.
It didn't work out.
Bernard Pollard has a softer side.
Drew Brees says his sons won't play football until they're teenagers.
