Here's your wakeup call -- a combination of newsworthy and/or interesting tidbits -- for Tuesday, February 26:





  • Still think they don't take their football seriously in Alabama? (AP)
  • The ACC welcomes Pitt by having the Panthers play defending league champ Florida State in their conference opener. (AP)




  • Tom Brady's contract extension -- the subject of story and song hereabouts as another example of his selflessness and team-first attitude -- is being looked at skeptically by both other teams and agents, who wonder if there are side deals in place to ensure Brady gets compensated in other ways. (NBC's Pro Football Talk)
  • One thing we know: The lowering of Brady's average annual salary means Joe Flacco will get less money if the Ravens tag him. (Pro Football Talk)
  • Don't worry, Jerry. I have a feeling that if the Cowboys ever win another Super Bowl on your watch, you won't let us avoid giving you the credit. (Pro Football Talk)
  • Phony dead girlfriends won't lower your draft stock, but bad times in the 40 will. (CSN Chicago)
  • It was the stress, insists Teo. (Pro Football Talk)
  • New Browns management couldn't be more open about its Brandon Weeden skepticism, not unless it posted "Help Wanted: Quarterback" signs across northern Ohio. But that doesn't bother Weeden, who says he "completely [expects] to be the starter" next year. (Pro Football Talk)
  • If you're looking for defensive linemen, Mike Patterson and Cullen Jenkins are available. (CSN Philly)
