Some NFL headliners across the league:

Patriots’ tight-end, Rob Gronkowski, is having surgery today, and is still questionable for Week 1 of the 2013 season. This is his fifth surgery since November.

Brady would certainly like to have his star back, as his numbers took a heavy hit once Gronk went down mid-season of last year.

English soccer star David Beckham was reportedly contacted by an NFL scout trying to gauge his interest in trying out, according to the UK Daily Mirror.

However, it looks like the chances of that happening are slim to none.

“The offer came in, and he politely said that it wasn’t right for him,” a source told the Mirror.

Mike Gleason received an official apology from former Atlanta radio hosts after they mocked his ALS.

In accepting the apology, Gleason had this to say on his official face book page:

“Regarding the DJ skit in Atlanta yesterday. I would like to thank the public for their support. “’Defend Team Gleason’ now has been officially redefined. Additionally, the DJs have provided genuine apology. Received and accepted. We have all made mistakes in this life. How we learn from our mistakes is the measure of who we are.”

LB Desmond Bishop was recently cut by the Green Bay Packers, as was announced by the team. He will reportedly visit the Chiefs and Raiders, although Kansas City’s 3-4 scheme is probably a better fit.
