It is officially the NFL's "off-season" but as ESPN's Adam Schefter points out, is there really an off-season when it comes to the NFL? Between the NFL Combine, Draft, Mini-Camps, Training Camps, Free Agency, Coaching Changes, and Trades, there may be an off-season but there is never a dull moment.


Around The NFL:

ESPN NFL32 @NFL32: Steelers introduce Todd Haley as new offensive coordinator. Send us your comments on how the Steelers offense can improve #NFL32-
BE- Am shocked by this move by Pittsburgh. Tomlin and Haley may clash a lot behind the scenes.

OAKLAND RAIDERS @RAIDERS: The Raiders have released cornerback Stanford Routt
BE- Get use to seeing this a lot from every team across the league. Players will be cut, signed, extended, tagged, etc. Welcome to the Off-season.

NFLtixExchange @NFLtixExchange: Thanks to all who gave to our #SuperBowl food drive! We sent 450lbs of food to Indy's Second Helpings, couldn't have done without u!

Warren Sapp @QBKILLA: Peyton Manning To The Dallas Cowboys? #FoodForThought
BE- Rumors Rumors Rumors. Just get use to the idea of hearing Peyton Manning will play for NFL Team X in 2012. Because pretty much every franchise has been linked to Peyton (even the teams who don't need a QB, as shown here by Warren).

Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter: RT @PeteHanabergh: What do u do now that nfl ended? .. Never ends. @BShah23 points out combine in 15 days, free agency in 34, draft in 78.
BE-Couldn't be more true. Never a dull moment with the NFL.

AP_NFL @AP_NFL: Lawmakers say Sept 11 heroes deserve commemorative plates before Super Bowl champion #Giants: #NFL #nyg-

SBJ/SBD @SBJSBD: Packers planning to raise season-ticket prices by $3-5.
BE-The Packers are one of the best"products" in the NFL. Good Product=Higher Price point. Simple Economics. @ffchamps: Reggie Wayne Likely To Leave Indy?
BE-No Peyton and now no Reggie. Say goodbye to the Colts of yesteryear.


WFAN Sports Radio 66 @WFAN660: Victor Cruz: I Deserve To Be Paid More
BE-He does. Plain and Simple.

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM: Jake Ballard said optimistically his rehab could be 6-8 months or so. But he does not want to rush back and suffer a setback.

NFL @NFL:  Thanks to the magic of Sound FX, you can hear what the @Giants' #SB46-winning drive sounded like on the field:…
BE-Sound FX is one of my favorite shows on NFL Network and its highlights like this that remind me why.

NFL @NFL: Memo to new @Giants fans: your starting QB's name is "Manning". Not "Sanchez".…
BE-Girls like this RUIN the reputation of female NFL fans across the globe. What an embossment.


John DiTullio @JohnDitullio: Rob Gronkowski is only guilty of being young. Told by  father of a girl who was at the party that several girls ripped his shirt off.
BE-Everyone blows off steam in their own way. Gronk does it by dancing like Frankenstein in the club. #DontHateThePlaya

Ralph Vacchiano @TheBlueScreen: Belichick to Pats: 'Make them throw to Manningham' ... #NYG-
BE- Of the Giants 3 WRs, Manningham is the most inconsistent, so even though he came through with a big catch, Belichick's plan was correct in nature.

Bill Simmons @sportsguy33: Just watched Inside the NFL's SB 46 recap w/ the NFL Films audio. I actually feel worse. Note to other Pats fans: don't watch.
BE-Yeah Patriots fans should probably turn off TVs, computers, radios, etc for the next week or so.

College Football/Combine

Chadd Scott @ChaddScott: Do you realize you're living through the most exciting, unsettled & historic times in college football history?
BE- Did not realize that, but thanks for the enlightenment.

Papa Cane @SaveUMFootball: NFL Combine & Miami Hurricanes: 8 Miami Hurricanes have been invited to the NFL Combine. Only second to Alabama (9). #NFLU
BE-This year's combine will be filled with a lot of talent. #CANTWAIT

From Football Nation:

: Not to nitpick, but it's 2 SuperBowls in 5 years for . Folks keep writing 2 in 4. 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 = 5 seasons.

Mike Lietz @FFChamps_Lietz: New England Patriots: Most Pressing Offseason Needs

Brad Berreman @bradberreman24:  If I Ran The Minnesota Vikings...

Aaron Bonchi @TheBonch: Just finished taping the season finale of the Jeff and The Bonch show for @Fballnation. Don't worry though, we'll be back soon enough-
