Around the NFL: O.J. Howard

Bruce Arians is the new coach in Tampa Bay, and that's a good news, bad news situation for O.J. Howard. On the one hand, Arians has had a lot of success drawing up strong offenses, in Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and Arizona. On the other hand, as Ian's posted recently, those offenses haven't produced a lot of viable tight ends -- the list pretty much begins and ends with Heath Miller over the years.   more »

Scheduletron: Strength of schedule, rushing

Baltimore and Seattle had the league’s two best rushing offenses at the end of last year. They also, as luck would have it, project to play the easiest schedules against the run in the upcoming season.  more »

Around the NFL: Cam Newton

Cam Newton underwent shoulder surgery in January, and around the time there were some worrying things being put out there about his recovery process. Owner David Tepper said back then, ""If you told me that [Newton] took a year off and could be fully recovered and that's what it took, why wouldn't you do that?"

Factoid: Falcons OL

The Falcons used two first-round picks on offensive linemen, and two of their three largest free agent purchases were on offensive linemen, and it’s easy to see why. They weren’t good enough in that area of the team last year.   more »

Factoid: Eagles lock up Wentz

The Eagles locked up Carson Wentz with a four-year, $128 million contract extension yesterday. It seems a little bit risky, what with Wentz having ended the last two seasons being sidelined by injury. But hard to argue with the quarterback's production on the field.   more »

Fantasy News: Colts receiving corps

If you want a team that can spread it around inside the 10, I offer the Indianapolis Colts. They were the only team that had 13 different players catch passes in that part of the field last year (and all but two of them caught touchdowns).   more »

Around the NFL: Willie Snead?

With Lamar Jackson in the lineup, Baltimore had the league's worst passing game a year ago. He'll be their quarterback this year, though, so they evidently think there's some chance he'll improve. But they're replacing most of their top wideouts from last season, so one of their two rookies will need to pick up all those targets. Or maybe a holdover, lightly regarded Willie Snead.   more »

If Aaron Rodgers is to have a bounce-back season in Green Bay's new offense, he'll need more playmakers than just Davante Adams. Geronimo Allison is the favorite for No. 2 duties, but another possibility is second-year wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Rodgers has good things to say so far.   more »
