Around the NFL: Darius Slayton

I see that Darius Slayton is staying away from the Giants’ workouts, hoping to get his contract adjusted. I’m not sure if that will be successful, but I can see where he’s coming from.   more »

Factoid: Second-round quarterbacks

Saw a discussion recently about a couple of quarterbacks expected to go in either the first or second round of this week's draft, Washington's Michael Penix (pictured) and Oregon's Bo Nix. The gist was that the hit rate on early 2nds was really good. I took a look.   more »

Trivia: April 21, 2024

Tom Brady threw 50 touchdowns for the Patriots in 2007 and 43 for the Bucs in 2021, leading the league both years. Peyton Manning threw 49 for the Colts in 2004 and 55 for the Broncos in 2013, also leading the league both years. Who is the only other quarterback in the Super Bowl era who’s led the league in touchdown passes for two different teams? answer »

Around the NFL: Courtland Sutton

Courtland Sutton is staying away from Denver’s offseason workouts, and I can’t say I blame him. He wants a new contract, and his value will never be higher.   more »

Andy Richardson: Pat Tillman

Twenty years ago this Monday, former Cardinals safety Pat Tillman was killed in action in Afghanistan. Tillman was a 7th-round pick, selected 226th overall in 1998, and coincidentally the Cardinals have the same pick again this year. Would be remarkable if the pick were anywhere near as successful.   more »

Factoid: Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins have one of the trickier backfields to grade. There will be multiple backs involved, and the production isn’t going to be as good as last year.   more »

Around the NFL: DJ Chark

If it seems like we've been talking a lot about Chargers wide receivers lately, we have. They don't have much at the position, and they seem to be kicking the tires on a lot of potential candidates. Another veteran lofts his hat into the ring this week: DJ Chark.   more »

Trivia: April 19, 2024

Len Dawson and Johnny Unitas are both Hall of Famers. What team originally drafted (and unloaded) both of these men, before they spent the bulk of their careers with the Chiefs and Colts, respectively? answer »

Factoid: Diminishing value

Teams don’t value running backs like they used to, and this year perhaps more than any other. No running back will be selected in the first round, and I’m not sure that one will even be selected in the second.   more »

Around the NFL: Dobbins and Edwards

As anticipated, the Chargers have signed running back J.K. Dobbins. With Gus Edwards also under contract, they've got both Ravens main runners from the last few years, the offensive coordinator (Greg Roman) from most of those teams, and I notice the head coaches (John and Jim Harbaugh) even have the same last name. Spooky.   more »

Trivia: April 18, 2024

What four Heisman Trophy winners have also been named MVP in Super Bowl games? answer »

Factoid: New York Giants

The Giants are an interesting wild card in the top 10. Are they looking to replace Daniel Jones? Or are they more interested in getting him some help, which could potentially involve trading back?   more »

Around the NFL: Royce Freeman

Dallas signed veteran running back Royce Freeman yesterday. It's doubtless a small-money contract, with Freeman a journeyman who won't necessarily make the final roster. But the remote possibility of him opening as the team's starter must be considered.   more »
