We hope you all had a great holiday weekend, but we are ready to get back at it here at the Fantasy Guru Global Headquarters in what has become an increasingly warm Southern New Jersey. Today we’ll update you on an old QB riding into the sunset (no not him), the rehab of some important receivers, and a couple of young QBs holding workouts.
Country music star? Stetson Man? Guy who stares off into the distance? Just a few options for Kerry Collins' post-NFL life.

Titan OG Jake Scott was on Sirius/XM NFL Radio last week and said he didn’t think Collins would return to “be a nursemaid to a young kid” referring to rookie QB and major developmental project Jake Locker.

A hearing will be held to determine what happens to the money and whether or not the players will receive damages as a result of the violation by the NFL. After meeting for six hours on Tuesday, the two sides continue mediation talks on Wednesday with the entire NFL labor committee and the NFLPA executive committee present, including NFLPA president Kevin Mawae. With an owners meeting also scheduled on Wednesday just 25 miles away from [...]
