Around the NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars are continuing their seemingly futile attempt to climb back to respectability. They’ve endured double-digit losses six years in a row, tying for the 3rd-longest streak in NFL history. Plenty of key draft picks and free agent signings will come in the next few months, but they’re starting with the offensive line.  more »

Factoid: Kenny Britt

The 2009 NFL Draft featured six wide receivers being taken in the first round. Early on, Hakeem Nicks and Percy Harvin looked like the two shiniest gems from that class. In 2017, though, those players are out of the league, while three other first-rounders are enjoying the more noteworthy careers.   more »

Trivia: February 20, 2017

Since extra points were moved back prior to the 2015 season, who are the only two kickers who haven't missed a PAT? (Both of these players have been their teams' kickers for all 32 of these games, hitting a combined 127 extra points.) answer »

Factoid: Robert Kelley

Robert Kelley had an impressive rookie season for Washington, rushing for 704 yards and 7 TDs despite being undrafted in April and not emerging as the starting running back until Week 8. It's not the first time Washington has turned a nobody running back into somebody as a rookie.   more »

Around the NFL: Seattle Seahawks

I don’t think the Seahawks are going to re-sign Steven Hauschka. They’ve signed Blair Walsh to a contract worth $1.1 million, and I think their plan is to save a few bucks at the position – they’ll go with either Walsh or some other cheaper option.  more »

Trivia: February 19, 2017

Only five players ever have been named Rookie of the Year (either Offensive ROY or Defensive ROY) and then gone on to play in a Super Bowl (that same season). Assignment today is to name any of these guys. Hint: We’re looking for a pass-rushing defensive end, a Hall-of-Fame linebacker and three ‘70s-vintage running backs. answer »

Around the NFL: NFL fines

They do something pretty neat at the spotrac.com website. They list all of the league fines for every player – and not only for the 2016 season, but going all the way back to 2002.   more »

Factoid: Ezekiel Elliott

It's not news that Ezekiel Elliott had a great year. But with 1,994 total yards and 16 TDs, his year wasn't only great -- it was the best by any rookie running back this century.   more »

Factoid: Carolina Panthers

I saw the blurb go by where Ron Rivera was suggesting that the Panthers want Cam Newton to run less. They’re worried about him getting hurt.  more »

Around the NFL: Melvin Gordon

One of the more interesting early fantasy picks next season with be Melvin Gordon. After a lousy rookie season, he carried fantasy teams for most of his second year, although one of the key measurables is a little suspect -- he averaged just 3.9 yards per carry. But his new coach thinks Gordon can be special.   more »

Trivia: February 17, 2017

We'll see how he runs at the combine, but for now most observers say Mike Williams will be the first wide receiver drafted -- the fourth Clemson receiver selected in this first round in this century (joining DeAndre Hopkins, Sammy Watkins and Rod Gardner). What are the only other three schools that have had four wide receivers selected with first-round picks since 2000? answer »

Fantasy News: Free agency

I find Tyrod Taylor and Kirk Cousins to be interesting pieces in the offseason. Both have shown some ability to operate offenses. They are worthy of being two of the 32 starting quarterbacks on the planet. But neither looks particularly likely to ever develop into one of the top 15 quarterbacks in the league.  more »

Andy Richardson: Jimmy Garoppolo

Not enough that the Patriots are Super Bowl champs, again. They seem poised to win the offseason, too. Tom Brady thinks he's going to play another 5 years, and Jimmy Garoppolo is apparently going to fetch the Patriots a premium draft pick in the next month or so. At least.   more »
