Tuesday September 8th, 2015

The 2015 NFL seasons begins Thursday, with the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. Quarterback Tom Brady is set to take the field after his four-game Deflategate suspension was overturned by federal judge Richard Berman earlier this month. Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, however, will miss the game as part of his two-game suspension.

Elsewhere, NFL teams are moving on from training camp and the preseason. Last week’s roster cuts got every team to the 53-player limit, kick-starting free agency and waiver action. The trade mill is also churning again as a result, and some further moves could be made before Week 1. Check back often as we update below with the latest news, rumors, transactions, injury updates and more.
