Philadelphia has released wide receiver DeSean Jackson after six seasons amid concerns of gang association. Reports tie him to Los Angeles gangs who have been linked to two homicides since 2010. It has also been reported the team has concerns about his work attitude, work ethic, chemistry with coach Chip Kelly, and a penchant for missing team meetings to hang out with friends. There was also the incident of dropping the ball before reaching the goalline after an apparent long touchdown and lobbying the front office for a new contract shortly after the Eagles were eliminated from the playoffs.

San Francisco linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested Sunday for making a false bomb threat at Los Angeles International Airport. Smith had become belligerent during an airport screening and it was at that point that he made his threat. This is in additional to a DUI and three felony counts of an illegal possession of an assault weapon.

The 49ers front office issued a statement saying they are disappointed with Smith and will have until May 3 to pick up the option on his rookie contract. My guess would be no way.

Former NFL quarterback Earl Morrall has died at the age of 79. Morrall was drafted out of Michigan State by San Francisco who dealt him to Pittsburgh for two first round draft picks. The Steelers would deal him to Detroit for Bobby Layne. It would be the start of a pattern of Morrall being an insurance policy for such greats as Johnny Unitas, Bob Griese, Fran Tarkenton, Len Dawson, and Y.A. Tittle. Morrall's biggest claim to fame would the only quarterback to come off the bench to lead a team to a come from behind to win a Super Bowl when he replaced an injured an injured Unitas to lead the then Baltimore Colts to a win over Dallas in Super Bowl V. After being unceremoniously dumped by the Colts, he would also fill in for an injured Bob Griese during Miami's undefeated season.
