Factoid: New York Jets

Josh McCown signed with the Jets, and for that he deserves some kind of award. He’s been slaving away in lesser circumstances for the last three years, bouncing around from the Bucs to the Browns and now to the Jets – all teams with no prayer of finishing .500.  more »


Factoid: Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson is looking for a new job, but hasn't found any takers as of yet. Sounds like the biggest obstacle is his contract demands; he reportedly wants to be paid like an elite back. But he's 32 years old, at a position where teams are increasingly content to get by with lesser, cheaper players.   more »


Trivia: March 26, 2017

What is the only team that hasn’t selected a wide receiver in the first round in this century? answer »

Factoid: NFL draft

I will be interested to see where Cooper Kupp goes in the draft. His measurables aren’t great and he comes from a small school, but he’s caught a ton of balls.   more »

Around the NFL: Jonathan Stewart

NFL contracts are hardly cast in stone and running backs even more so. But it looks like Jonathan Stewart can at least count on being Carolina's lead back in 2017, regardless of what happens in the NFL Draft.   more »


Trivia: March 25, 2017

Using Scrabble scoring (in which letters like A, E, N and R are worth 1 point and letters like J, X, Q and Z are worth 8-10 points), what two running backs have names worth over 50 points? Both of these players were free agents, with one staying put and the other going to a new franchise. answer »


Factoid: Los Angeles Rams

The Rams might still salvage Jared Goff, but he was pretty miserable last year, looking remarkably unprepared to step on the field. It’s fair to wonder if he’d even be a first-round pick if he were tossed back into the upcoming draft.  more »

Andy Richardson: Cleveland Browns

Spending some time on the offensive line story, and the Cleveland Browns have jumped out at me. One of the first things the current regime did was watch center Alex Mack leave for Atlanta, which hurt. But since then they've put a lot of money into the line.   more »

Trivia: March 24, 2017

Rookies last year ranked 1st and 2nd in rushing, with Ezekiel Elliott and Jordan Howard running for 1,631 and 1,313 yards. What was the only year in league history that two rookie running backs combined for more yards? The backs were both top-10 overall picks. answer »

Factoid: NFL draft

It’s an unusually good year for tight ends in the draft. O.J. Howard will be selected in the first round, and he might be joined for a few others.  more »

Around the NFL: Benny Cunningham

Sometimes the second wave of free agency is as interesting as the first. That's when players sign for less money and less fanfare, but you never know -- there's opportunity with those players in fantasy leagues. They won't be coveted in drafts, but could wind up being usable pieces.   more »


Trivia: March 23, 2017

What's the only franchise that's had five different quarterbacks put together seasons with 30-plus touchdowns? (Touchdowns includes both passing and rushing, and for the four in the Super Bowl Era, they all had at least 2 TD runs). answer »

Factoid: Philadelphia Eagles

The tendency is to believe the Cowboys and Eagles have solved the quarterback position for the foreseeable future, and maybe they have. Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz did a lot of good things last year. But looking at the career arcs of previous quarterbacks, I get a little more nervous about those guys.  more »
