According to Pro Football Focus, edge rusher Haason Reddick was the Arizona Cardinals' most improved player for the 2020 season.
The Baltimore Ravens are delivering donuts and coffee to healthcare workers at a local hospital this week. A good deed, check.
The Buffalo Bills could lose linebacker Matt Milano this offseason in free agency.
The Carolina Panthers are one of the teams to watch during this year's quarterback frenzy... but do they have a plan at the position?
Mike Pettine is joining the Chicago Bears as a senior defensive assistant. Pettine was previously with the Packers and was also the Browns' head coaching experiment No. 432.
The Cincinnati Bengals look to be adding a Ring of Honor. Next up, having some players good enough to be in it!
Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski earned Coach of the Year with these examples of exceptional leadership.
Could the Dallas Cowboys be one of the teams considered for a big quarterback move?
Deshaun Watson to the Denver Broncos? Running back Phillip Lindsay says it's not his job to go there: "It’s one of those hard subjects where it’s not up to you. So, there’s no reason to even think about it because you’re not the one that has to go in there and make the offers for the man to come here.”
Matthew Stafford details the many injuries he dealt with during his last season as a Detroit Lion: “I had the partially torn UCL in my right thumb, I tore my UCL on my left elbow on the second to last play of the Houston game that nobody knew about, trying to stiff-arm a guy. That’s why I started wearing a sleeve on my left arm because I had all sorts of tape underneath it, just to hold it in place. I broke my cartilage on my eighth rib in Green Bay. I also tore something [in the back of] my left knee. And then I had a subtalar, right ankle sprain.” Sounds like a lot.
One of the Green Bay Packers' most significant needs is cornerback.
The Houston Texans are still out here insisting that Deshaun Watson is their quarterback. Ok, sir.
As the offseason begins for the Indianapolis Colts, the team addsten new coaching hires.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have announced their brand-new coaching staff. Just in time for Trevor Lawrence's throwing sesh tomorrow.
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes had surgery on his lingering turf toe on Wednesday, and all went well. While we're not playing the 'blame game' here, that seems to be one of the main reasons for the SB flop. Onward and upward.
The Las Vegas Raiders are one of the teams interested in current Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. While there's still an issue there at QB, in my opinion, Smith-Schuster is an upgrade at the receiver position.
The Los Angeles Chargers announced their 2021 coaching staff, headed by head coach Brandon Staley.
Matthew Stafford says he's with the Los Angeles Rams now for one reason, and one reason only -- to win: "I've always wanted to play in those big games, I feel like I will excel in those situations. I wanted to shoot my shot."
The Miami Dolphins are leaning towards signing kicker Jason Sanders to an extension. Sanders earned an All-Pro nod in 2020 and was 36-of-39 for field goals. As we've seen this past season, kicking is a lost art.
Minnesota Vikings left tackle Riley Reiff got his contract re-worked, giving him a $1 million bonus. Reiff was expected to earn that bonus in incentives last season (based on playing offensive snaps) but just missed it due to being on the COVID-19 list during his final game. Reiff got that bread anyways.
A look at the most improved players for the New England Patriots in 2020. Chase Winovich for the win.
A case for the New Orleans Saints to sign wide receiver T.Y. Hilton.
New York Giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham has nothing but good things to say about his job: “This is my dream job, being the defensive coordinator of the New York Giants. It’s a great opportunity to be able to stay here and the commitment they’re showing me. But the fact is, it’s the NFL. I still got a ways to go. We’ve got to perform better than this past year. That’s my goal. But I love being here.”
Heading into his third season, New York Jets corner Bless Austin is ready to take a substantial leap: "I want to make the big plays and be one of the best in the game. Last year I was saying it, but now this year, I'm saying it, and I can feel it. I can feel it in my heart truly that I need to make that big gain. I feel like I'm going to make it, no doubt."
The Philadelphia Eagles hired Tyler Brown as special teams quality control coach. Brown is the son of Baltimore Ravens special teams coach Randy Brown.
Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster could be on his way out, and that leaves a hole in the offense for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The San Francisco 49ers announced their new coaching hires and promotions within the coaching staff on Thursday.
The Russell Wilson-Seattle Seahawks drama continues. A day after I said that I highly doubt anything happens here, I'm starting to become a believer myself that there could be something there....
As one does, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White celebrated his team's Super Bowl win while riding around on a horse.
Former Tennessee Titans running back Eddie George knows what it's like, clearly, and doesn't see Derrick Henry's workload getting any lighter: "So, I don't buy into the theory that he is getting the hell beat out of him by looking at all the carries he has. It is the quality of carries, and he is not getting bludgeoned; he is not getting beat up in between the tackles. With that being said, now it's just about him showing a level of consistent moving forward. But it's not one of those situations where I expect him to slow down."
While we'd like another happy ending for quarterback Alex Smith, his time with the Washington Football Team may be up.
