Around the NFL: Giants axe Marshall

The Giants have released Brandon Marshall, and the only surprise is that they didn’t make the move sooner. At 34, he seems to be pretty much done at this point (I was surprised when they signed him last year).  more »


Around the NFL: First-round wide receivers

The Cowboys cut Dez Bryant, and now every mock draft is sure they'll draft a wide receiver in the first round. Calvin Ridley, Courtland Sutton (pictured) and D.J. Moore are the popular choices. And maybe they will. But the history indicates that while that player might go on to be the team's future at wide receiver, he's unlikely to put up big numbers in his first season.   more »


Trivia: April 19, 2018

Sam Bradford (assuming he's healthy) likely will start on opening day for Arizona. He's a former No. 1 overall pick, and the Cardinals began last season with Carson Palmer (also a former No. 1 pick). When was the last time this happened -- a team starting back-to-back seasons with different quarterbacks who had been chosen No. 1 overall. As with Arizona, the two quarterbacks were both originally chosen by different teams. answer »


Factoid: Cole Beasley's decline

I didn’t have a problem with the decision to cut Dez Bryant loose. I think he’s lost some speed and effectiveness. But he didn’t cause all of the stink down in Dallas. A lot of other guys on that team have struggled as well.  more »


Around the NFL: T.Y. Hilton

It was a rough year for T.Y. Hilton in 2017. With Andrew Luck on the shelf, Hilton finished with the worst numbers of his career: just 4 TDs, and his lowest number of receptions (57) and yards (966) since his rookie season. He'd gone over 1,000 yards in four straight years previously.   more »

Trivia: April 18, 2018

Who are the only three active running backs who’ve had seasons in with 50-plus catches while averaging 11-plus yards per catch? Two of three guys are pretty easy – franchise players. The third is an obscure back who’s slipped the last two years – he’s never progressed beyond being a change-of-pace and third-down back and isn’t a lock to be on a roster opening day. answer »


Around the NFL: Flacco goes camping

I’m not a big Joe Flacco fan. I have posted a couple of items in the last few months dumping on him – outlining just how bad he’s been over the last two years. But I see that he’s now intending to work with his receivers in the offseason for the first time, and that’s a step in the right direction.   more »


Around the NFL: Ameer Abdullah

There was a story over the weekend that the Lions could shop Ameer Abdullah. My knee jerk reaction was, for what, exactly? Abdullah has been in the league three years now, and he's been nothing but disappointing. A couple of flashes in the preseason, but nowhere to be found when the games start.   more »


Trivia: April 17, 2018

Who is the only player in NFL history with 100-yard receiving games for six different teams? He's a former first-round pick, and he once caught a touchdown pass in a Super Bowl. answer »


Around the NFL: Bucs re-sign Humphries

I see that Adam Humphries has signed his tender. He’s remaining with the Bucs, and I think he’s a notable player.   more »

Around the NFL: Broncos release Anderson

The Broncos have released C.J. Anderson, and like the Dez Bryant release, you wonder a little bit why the team couldn't have done the player a favor by cutting him sooner. Anderson can still play, and might have had more of a market earlier in the free agency period.   more »


Trivia: April 16, 2018

What are the only four teams that in this century haven't selected a quarterback with a first-round pick? answer »

Factoid: Dez Bryant

Where will Dez Bryant land? One ESPN report indicates four teams have interest so far: Cardinals, Ravens, Bills and Packers.  more »


Factoid: Saquon Barkley

The fantasy appeal of Saquon Barkley comes from not only his running ability (3,843 yards and 43 TDs in three college seasons, and a 4.40 at the combine) but also his receiving potential. Arguably he offers the best combination of the two from a college running back we've seen in a number of years. Especially as a receiver, he really stands out.   more »
