Factoid: Older running backs

We’ve got older backs with new teams. Adrian Peterson in New Orleans, Marshawn Lynch in Oakland, and Jamaal Charles in Denver. Is it worthwhile gambling on any of these players?  more »

Around the NFL: Brandon Marshall

Brandon Marshall with the Giants is an interesting case. He definitely won't be the No. 1; the question is whether he'll be the No. 2. The Giants have Sterling Shepard in his second season. They'll also throw to other players, having added Evan Engram in the draft, and they like to throw to their running backs.   more »

What is the only team that has been a member of the NFL every year since Super Bowl I and never played in a Super Bowl game? answer »

Around the NFL: Chicago Bears

I don’t get Ryan Pace, the general manager of the Bears. He’s had a bizarre offseason.   more »

Around the NFL: Breshad Perriman

Is this the year Breshad Perriman puts it all together for the Ravens? Maybe. The team is saying good things about him at the padless practices, and Perriman himself says he's feeling great. He flashed some potential a year ago, too.   more »

Factoid: New England Patriots

I’m not sure what to make of Dwayne Allen. If Rob Gronkowski gets hurt yet again, we’ll all want Allen. But he doesn’t look as dynamic as some of the other tight ends they’ve had there.  more »

Around the NFL: Jay Ajayi

Jay Ajayi comes off a breakout season for the Dolphins, impressive because he wasn't even active in Week 1 and wasn't a starter until Week 5. And the Dolphins are suggesting he'll have an even bigger workload in 2017.  more »

Trivia: May 25, 2017

What two quarterbacks were the first to start 100 consecutive regular-season games? Both quarterbacks were chosen in the 1973 draft – one in the second round, one in the third. They both started their playing streaks on the same day in September of 1977, and they both played their 100th consecutive game on the same day in September, 1984. answer »

Factoid: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

We have kicked around Mike Evans some the past few days. I have let the cat out of the bag that I’m not super high on him for this year. As much as I would like to elevate him above Odell Beckham Jr. and Julio Jones (receivers I also am leery of), I just don’t see it.  more »

Trivia: May 24, 2017

Cortez Kennedy passed away yesterday -- found dead in his home in Orlando at age 48. His Hall of Fame career was highlighted by him being named the Defensive Player of the Year in 1992 despite playing for a 2-14 team -- by far the worst record for any team with a player to win this award. Of the 46 winners of this award, which played on the team finishing with the best record? answer »

Factoid: First-round quarterbacks

The Bears say Mike Glennon is their starting quarterback, and Andy Reid says the same about Alex Smith. Less plausibly, Houston says Tom Savage will start ahead of rookie Deshaun Watson (left). Recent history suggests that all three of the first-round quarterbacks play plenty in their rookie season -- and it's a bad sign for their NFL futures if they don't.   more »

Factoid: Rookie tight ends

You can never say never on any player. Strange things happen. But I’m pretty confident I won’t be selecting any of the three tight ends chosen in the first round of the NFL draft: O.J. Howard (left), Evan Engram and David Njoku.  more »

Trivia: May 23, 2017

Tony Romo finished his career (at least for now) with 248 touchdown passes. Not bad considering he had to work his way into the league as an undrafted free agent. Who are the only two quarterbacks who were never drafted who have more career touchdown passes than Romo? answer »

Around the NFL: C.J. Anderson

C.J. Anderson was a key component of Denver's Super Bowl run two years ago, but that might be a career highlight for him. He was hurt most of last season, and it doesn't sound like he'll be featured in the Broncos running game this year.   more »
