BAN THE BIRD: In Phoenix, Bob Young writes NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell “should consider suspending the use of Twitter and other forms of social media by players.” Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett tweeted Wednesday that he nearly went to the Cardinals facility "with a handgun before realizing that his book bag was a little heavy." Titans RB Chris Johnson, who came to an agreement on a new contract Thursday, “reacted earlier in the week to fans who accused him of greed.” Johnson wrote, "Can these fake Titan fans STFU (shut the expletive up) on my timeline." On Wednesday, Texans RB Arian Foster, who is “nursing a twingy hamstring, tweeted out a photo of his MRI.” Young writes, “There seems to be no end to the dumb things athletes can convey in 140 characters or less” (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 9/2).
