Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II feels the NFL will be holding games in Mexico and Germany within the next five years. Rooney, one of the members of the NFL's International Committee, is optimistic the league will stage games in two more countries. "If I had to put a timetable on it, I would be disappointed if we don't have games in those two countries within the next five years," Rooney told the team's website.
The National Football League will play regular-season games in Germany and Mexico within five years if Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II has his way. Rooney, among the owners on the NFL's International Committee, said in a posting on the team's website that he thinks the expansion of the league's global exposure will come by 2020.

(Reuters) - Adrian Robinson, a former NFL linebacker who recently signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League, has died at the age of 25, his representatives said on Monday. Robinson, who died on Saturday night, was an undrafted free agent when he signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2012, playing 12 games. In the 2013 National Football League season, Robinson played a combined 10 games with the Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers and Washington Redskins. Robinson, who played in college at Temple University, sat out the 2014 NFL campaign and signed a contract last month with the Tiger-Cats.
C.J. Nitkowski had nothing to lose in spring 2011. The rotator cuff in his left shoulder that he'd relied on during his decade as a major league pitcher was in tatters. So Nitkowski paid $3,000 to have stem cells extracted from his waist, separated then injected back into his shoulder. The ensuing ''boost'' he felt helped him sign a minor-league deal with the New York Mets in 2012.

Give the Boston Herald this much: It knew what would go viral on Wednesday, in this social media world. Its front page, dealing with the ongoing New England Patriots deflate-gate controversy, was meant to agitate everyone outside of New England. And, the Herald did a good job of it. The @BostonHerald 's front page this morning. pic.twitter.com/1V3lczb2dp — NBCSN (@NBCSN) May 13, 2015 Let's assume this wasn't meant to begin a nuanced look at the issue. It boils deflate-gate down to a simple notion that dismisses legitimate gripes against the Patriots. Of course there is something to what the Herald is saying. The Minnesota Vikings and Carolina Panthers did roughly the same thing last season , illegally heating balls to make them softer and easier to grip and catch, but they got a warning from the NFL because the NFL never cared about the issue of ball manipulation before the AFC championship game. The league started caring then because it became a big deal ... because it involved the Patriots. If you don't think the attention to the case and the subsequent excessive punishment was in large part because it involved the Patriots, you're not paying much attention. But even though it's clear the punishment didn't fit the crime or evidence in this case, it's not correct to simply state "Everyone hates us because of four Super Bowls." That's too basic. Nobody seems to really hate the Pittsburgh Steelers (outside of Cleveland or Baltimore) or the Green Bay Packers (outside of Chicago and Minnesota) and those franchises have won titles and been good for a long time. The Patriots rub people the wrong way, sure, but the issue isn't that simple for most folks who have actually thought critically about it. But the Boston Herald wasn't looking for a deep discussion, just some attention. Well done on that. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?
