It’s rare to find an off switch to the NFL news cycle, especially when the season is ongoing.
Even in the offseason, there are still a lot of items to report from free agent signings, contract extensions, trades, holdouts, and mock drafts.
But once in a while, you get a break from the frantic pace of football journalism.
That’s why journalists covering the league can have fun during the celebration of the Fourth of July.
Really, there is nothing much to write but that won’t last for long with training camp looming.
Until then, even ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter has nothing to share.
But perhaps he has a quota of sports-related tweets daily and he is struggling to keep up today.
That’s why he is also focusing on the most popular sport every Fourth of July.

For one day, Joey Chestnut gets the spotlight as the best hot dog eater in the world.
His 15 titles are incomprehensible and he will likely surpass the 76 hot dogs he had last year.
Seriously, it’s only a matter of time until he gets to 100.
No, we not transitioning into a website for Nathan’s annual spectacle.
But with the drought of NFL stories today, why not focus on another G.O.A.T.
What If NFL Transactions Involved Hot Dogs?
Okay, the slow news day has just gotten slower that we’re already factoring in hotdogs in NFL deals.
For example, what if Aaron Rodgers‘ $50 million annual salary with the Green Bay Packers is comprised of $1 million worth of hot dogs?
Likewise, two offensive linemen can be traded to one another with ten kilograms of hot dogs as cash compensation.
What if undrafted rookies can be signed with hot dogs as salary?
If you’re still reading until this point, then you are as bored as we are.
