'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Colt McCoy will start over as a backup in San Francisco.

McCoy, who became expendable when Cleveland signed veteran free-agent quarterback Jason Campbell last week, was traded to the 49ers for two draft picks.

The Browns said they received two “undisclosed” draft choices, but a person familiar with the deal told the Associated Press the team got a fifth- and seventh-round pick in this month's NFL Draft in exchange for McCoy and Cleveland's sixth-round pick.

Report: Rodgers, Pack $2 million apart

NFL.com reported that the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers are about $2 million apart per season on a contract extension. Rodgers has reportedly been offered an annual salary of about $21 million. Reports said Rodgers' deal likely would be for six years and would include a record $60 million in guaranteed money.
