Around the NFL: Dallas Cowboys

Dallas had probably the league's very best offensive line in 2016, helping Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott put together breakout rookie campaigns. It's not certain it will be worse in 2017, but it will definitely be different.   more »

Trivia: March 19, 2017

What school has had the most players chosen in the first round (since the start of the common draft in 1967)? answer »

Factoid: Rookie receivers

With wide receivers, there’s a tendency to fall in love with players who are selected in the top 10 or who seem to be the consensus best rookie available. I’m as guilty as the next guy. I remember being high on Tavon Austin and Justin Blackmon. I was high on Corey Coleman (who might still be very good but had a so-so rookie year).  more »

Around the NFL: Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson has been one of the league's very best backs for close to a decade. But age catches up to everyone, and that's probably one of the reasons that Peterson is currently unemployed. That and perhaps money, and the reality that Peterson isn't a fit for every team.   more »

Trivia: March 18, 2017

Since the merger in 1970, what four universities have had over 20 players selected in the first round but have never had a quarterback chosen in the first round? answer »

Around the NFL: Minnesota Vikings

I see that the Vikings have signed Adam Thielen to a healthy new contract. They tagged him as a second-rounder, then gave him a three-year deal worth $17 million, with $11 million guaranteed and another $10 million possible in incentives. Makes me wonder what the team thinks of former first-rounder Laquon Treadwell.   more »

Factoid: Jared Cook

The Raiders have signed Jared Cook, filling a team need after Clive Walford was a disappointment as the main tight end a year ago. The question is if the general lack of production was due to Walford, or the offense -- and if Cook is really the guy to fix things anyway.   more »

Trivia: March 17, 2017

What three current NFL quarterbacks were first-round picks, and also the only players from their schools ever chosen in the first round (since the start of the common draft in 1967)? answer »

Factoid: Rookie running backs

Ezekiel Elliott had a standout season, but there was an additional big-time rookie runner last year. Given the situation he was in, Jordan Howard’s initial season was arguably even better.  more »

Around the NFL: Latavius Murray

Latavius Murray has signed with the Vikings, ensuring that Adrian Peterson won't be back with Minnesota. It won't be the least surprising if Peterson now signs with the Raiders, as Oakland seems to have an opening on their depth chart. It will be interesting to see how Murray fares, moving from one of the league's better offensive lines to one of its worst.   more »

Trivia: March 16, 2017

The Texans have finished with a winning record three years in a row, and they've done it with three different starting quarterbacks -- Fitzpatrick, Hoyer and Osweiler. But they're switching quarterbacks anyway. What was the last team to pull off what Houston is attempting -- four straight winning records with four different quarterbacks? One of the quarterbacks was also involved in the most-recent other three-QB streak. answer »

Factoid: Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers are going with Anthony Lynn as their head coach, and that should help Melvin Gordon around the goal line. Too often under Mike McCoy, that team tended to get pass happy around the end zone.  more »

Poll: March 15, 2017

What Seattle running back will finish with the best numbers in 2017 (standard scoring)?

Thomas Rawls (28%)
C.J.Prosise (28%)
Eddie Lacy (44%)

Factoid: Thomas Rawls

Seattle signed Eddie Lacy yesterday, and that move raised some eyebrows. His one-year contract for $5.55 million seems like a hefty (no pun intended) sum for a player who's apparently struggled with his weight, including now. But Seattle clearly needed to do something to have options beyond their current ones.   more »
