At least we know now what the Cowboys did to piss off Randy Gregory. All signs pointed to Gregory remaining with Dallas before he suddenly changed course and bolted to Denver. Apparently, the story is that Gregory objected to language in his proposed new contract in Dallas that would have required salary forfeiture if he were to be fined or suspended for any drug offense or violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Gregory, of course, has had previous suspensions.

“What do you mean I can’t eff up again and still get paid?!”

So it’s goodbye star, hello horsey.

Von Miller? Only if he’s willing to take a big financial hit to come back to Texas. The Cowboys are about OOD—Out of Dough.

Is Miami becoming “Dallas East”?  The Dolphins have pilfered WR Cedrick Wilson and guard Connor Williams.

Is Baker baked? That was bizarre, Mr. Mayfield. His social media message to Browns fans was adorned in past tenses. I’m having a hard time believing Deshaun Watson is going to Cleveland, but, hey, they have the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame and the lake is no longer on fire. So, you know, the Browns have that going for them. Which is nice…

The Bucs had a good day Tuesday. Tampa Bay signed free agent WR Russell Gage away from the Falcons. Gage will fill the #3 receiver role infamously abandoned by Antonio Brown. Putting him in the mix with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin should provide a nice homecoming gift for TB-12.

The Bucs then addressed a pressing need in the O-line by grabbing former Patriot guard Shaq Mason in exchange for a fifth-round pick. Mason will replace Alex Cappa, who bolted to Cincinnati in free agency. Now the Bucs will have to find another starting guard to succeed the retired Ali Marpet.

Tyrod Taylor is now the Giants’ backup QB behind Daniel Jones. NY turned to Taylor after Mitchell Trubisky opted to sign with the Steelers.

You can’t spell “NIT” without aTm.  Well, actually you can, but Buzz Williams needs to STFU. Dang, I detest whiners. Maybe if your team hadn’t lost eight straight late season games…

Is 60 the new 50 in the NBA? Kyrie drops five dozen on the Magic one night after KAT did the same thing to the Spurs.

Paul's Bio

I clearly have the attention span of your median fruit fly.Look! Airplane!

Sorry. I’m back.

It’s both a curse and a blessing. I’ve never bought this stuff about, “He who dies with the most toys wins.” But I do think that a wide range of life experiences helps us grow as people, and helps us better relate to other people. I’ve been fortunate. And I am beyond grateful.

I show up on time. I go like hell. I’m a good listener. I hold myself accountable. I own my mistakes. And I have a natural and an insatiable curiosity. I’m never afraid to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t. But then I try to find out.

The flip side is I’m a lousy ballroom dancer and my clothes sometimes fit me funny.

Stuff matters to me. I care. But while I take that stuff seriously, I try hard to never take myself seriously. As a result, I have sometimes been told, “Paul, it’s hard to tell when you’re serious and when you’re just having some fun. Which is it? Serious or fun?”

My answer is “yes.” But I think that is a legitimate criticism. I promise I’m going to work on that.

This has been the quickest and strangest half-century I’ve ever experienced. During that period, I’ve been afforded amazing opportunities in news and sports journalism across all platforms. I have taught wonderful students at the high school and collegiate level. Always, I learned more from them than they did from me. I’ve been a high school administrator. I spent ten seasons as a high school varsity football coach. I’ve been an advertising executive. I’ve hosted nationally syndicated television entertainment shows. In maybe the biggest honor I ever received, I was selected by NASA to be “Chet The Astronaut” for the “Land The Shuttle” simulator at Space Center Houston. (All I can say there, is “Do as I say, not as I do.” I put that thing in the Everglades more often than not.) Most recently, I just wrapped up a decade as a television news director, during which time our teams distinguished themselves in holding the powerful accountable, achieving both critical and ratings success.

What does all that mean? It means I am profoundly grateful. It also means I’m ready for “next.” So here we are. Radically Rational. It’s an idea I woke up with in 2017. I scribbled “Radically Rational” on a piece of notebook paper and used a magnet to stick it on our refrigerator. I saw it every day, and it just would not leave me alone.

I am second in charge at Radically Rational, LLC. My wife, Jo (also known as BB), is the president. Clearly, I have failed in my attempt to sleep my way to the top of this organization.

I hope you will learn that I’m loyal as a Labrador. But I will admit that this doggie can bite every now and then. My promise to you? I will show up on time. I will go like hell. I will listen to you earnestly and attentively. I will hold myself accountable. I will never be the least bit hesitant to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t.

But then I’ll try to find out. Let’s do it.
