National Football League roundup (Reuters) ( today ) Courtesy of
(The Sports Xchange) - A day after Tony Dungy was largely skewered for saying he would not have drafted openly gay linebacker Michael Sam, the former NFL coach clarified his comments and provided context. "I was not asked whether or not Michael Sam deserves an opportunity to play in the NFL. "I was not asked whether his sexual orientation should play a part in the evaluation process.

NFL roundup: Dungy addresses comments on Sam (The SportsXchange) ( today ) Courtesy of
A day after Tony Dungy was largely skewered for saying he would not have drafted openly gay linebacker Michael Sam, the former NFL coach clarified his comments and provided context. Dungy issued a statement Tuesday in an attempt to explain what he called an "honest answer" to a question for a story that appeared Sunday in the Tampa Tribune.

LB Angerer, WR Ebert catch on with Falcons (The SportsXchange) ( today ) Courtesy of
The Atlanta Falcons went shopping for a linebacker after Sean Weatherspoon was lost for the season and found Pat Angerer. The Falcons also signed wide receiver Jeremy Ebert on Tuesday. Angerer, a former Indianapolis Colts linebacker, worked out for the Falcons on Tuesday and impressed them enough to land a job. Angerer's 2013 season ended with a knee injury after 11 games that was repaired with microfracture surgery. Yahoo! Tue, Jul 22
 
Smith confident Bucs can make quick turnaround (The Associated Press) ( today ) Courtesy of
Lovie Smith talks about making the Tampa Bay Buccaneers relevant again. Smith not only has a proven track record as an NFL head coach, but inherited a talented nucleus the club began accumulating under Raheem Morris and later Greg Schiano, who was fired after going 11-21 during a tumultuous two-year stint. ''I'm not going into meetings saying: 'Hey guys, we were 4-12 last year, we've got to get to 5-11, we've made improvement,''' said Smith, who went 81-63, won three division titles, advanced to two NFC championship games and made one Super Bowl appearance in nine seasons with the Chicago Bears from 2004-2012. ''It's all about winning.'' Smith and new general manager Jason Licht discarded Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis and his $16 million annual salary, providing additional salary cap space to overhaul the roster in free agency.
