The NFL Combine is getting underway in Indianapolis, drawing all the big names to the Midwest for a good, old-fashioned marathon workout session.
Get your stopwatches ready because there are some 40 yard dashes to run!
All of this is for the NFL Draft in April.
Between the Combine and the Draft, no sport gets more marketing traction out of non-sporting events than the NFL.
While all of this is going on, free agents like Jeremy Shockey are trying to find new teams and sign contracts before the end of the collective bargaining agreement on March 3.
There is hope there will be a new deal in place by then, but players are hedging their bets and taking the money while it is there.
We'll keep an eye on Indianapolis and hit all the other news today, so thanks for stopping by.
