Factoid: Pierre-Paul to Bucs

In a fairly surprising trade, the Giants shipped Jason Pierre-Paul to the Bucs yesterday, essentially for a third-round pick. That's a valuable commodity, but so too is Pierre-Paul. He hasn't been quite the explosive (sorry) force he was earlier in his career, but he still has difference-making pass rush potential.   more »


Trivia: March 24, 2018

Terrelle Pryor signed with the Jets on Thursday. While he didn’t do much in Washington, Pryor two years ago caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards for a Cleveland team that went 1-15. Among teams playing a 16-game schedule, who are the only two players who caught more passes that Pryor while playing for teams that won fewer than 2 games? One comes from this century, and one comes from the ‘90s. answer »

Factoid: Short-range tight ends

I notice that more tight ends are running shorter routes nowadays, with Austin Seferian-Jenkins leading the way. He averaged only 7.1 yards per catch last year, the lowest average by any tight end with 50-plus catches in the last 25 years.   more »

Around the NFL: Mike Wallace to Philadelphia

Quite a winning streak for the Eagles and GM Howie Rosemann. Coming off a Super Bowl win, you usually expect teams to take a lot of hits in free agency. But the Eagles seem to be getting better.   more »


Trivia: March 23, 2018

What quarterback put up 2,487 total yards during the second half of last year? That’s over 200 more yards (combined passing/rushing) than any other quarterback when looking at the final eight games for each team. answer »

Around the NFL: Seattle adds Fluker

The Seahawks signed D.J. Fluker, and that’s not a surprise. They love kicking the tires on first-round picks who didn’t work out elsewhere – see if they can do a better job of tapping into the talent. And they’re looking to get their running game going, and Fluker might help in that regard – a 340-pounder who can bulldoze people inside.   more »


Factoid: Allen Hurns

The Jaguars cut Allen Hurns the other day, and it's a move that's seemingly been two years in the making. He didn't really live up to the huge contract the team gave him after his 1,000-yard 2015 season, plus Jacksonville has lots of other capable wide receivers.   more »

Around the NFL: Free agent blockers

How did we get to the point where Andrew Norwell is the highest-paid guard in the league? Four years ago, no NFL team was willing to even draft him.  more »

Around the NFL: Miami Unsound Machine

Sometimes you need to take a step back when looking at offseason moves. From a distance, it's easier to see intent, and the plan the front office is putting together, as with a complex puzzle. And then there's the Miami Dolphins. I'm not really sure what they're doing.   more »

What team has gone the longest without selecting a running back in the first round? answer »

Factoid: Mitchell Trubisky

Is there any hope for Mitchell Trubisky? They’ve added some new weapons, but he was pretty stinky as a rookie.  more »


Around the NFL: Eric Ebron to Colts

Sometimes it's like these guys just don't care about fantasy teams at all. Eric Ebron was by far the most intriguing free agent tight end out there, a still-young pass catcher who could go somewhere and put up starting-caliber production. So naturally he signs on with a team that already has a quality starter, damaging the appeal of both players.   more »


Trivia: March 20, 2018

Who’s the only tight end who had 3 receptions of 40-plus yards last year? This isn’t a player most anyone would guess. All three of his long catches came in the final seven weeks of the season, and another tight end on his own team finished the year with over twice as many catches. answer »
