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 well 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 »

Factoid: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

I’m not a big Mike Evans fan. Great player, and under different circumstances I might have him up at No. 2 among wide receivers on my board. But I think we could see a statistical slip this season.  more »

Factoid: Josh Doctson

First-round wideout Josh Doctson made no noise as a rookie, his season wiped out by a lingering Achilles injury. What should be the expectations for the Washington receiver in Year 2?  more »

Trivia: May 22, 2017

Who’s the only kicker who hasn’t missed any field goals inside 50 yards over the last two years? Among guys who’ve played, of course. This kicker has gone 36 of 40 over the last two years, with all of the misses from at least 51 yards. answer »

Factoid: LeGarrette Blount

I’m not crazy about the fit of LeGarrette Blount in Philadelphia. Rushing touchdowns, yes. The rest of the stuff, not so much.  more »

Factoid: Kareem Hunt

Kansas City traded up to select Kareem Hunt in the third round of the draft, and there's a chance he beats out Spencer Ware for the starting job. Kansas City could use an upgrade, after its running game disappointed down the stretch last year. In terms of touchdowns, team running backs didn't do very much all season.   more »

Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

We’re debating and haggling about defenses right now, trying to settle on a 1 thru 32. We try and set the right number for each category – fumbles, interceptions, sacks, touchdowns, special teams – and then see what those forecasts give us back in terms of team rankings.  more »

Around the NFL: DeSean Jackson

The Bucs signed DeSean Jackson in the offseason, and they're looking to get big plays out of him. Specifically, according to offensive coordinator Todd Monken, they're looking for him to prove worthy of his three-year, $33.5 million contract.   more »
