Mark Gastineau is calling on Roger Goodell to live up to his word.
JoAnn said that NFL doctors were questioning Gastineau’s dementia diagnosis, but after eight months of going through paperwork and records, they approved it in October.

Norwell’s old center (Ryan Kalil) and new center (Brandon Linder) held these awards, only for free agency to wash the old marks away.
