Factoid: DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins sure sucks in a lot of balls. It seems like wherever he goes and whoever’s at quarterback, they’re trying to jam the ball into his hands.   more »

Factoid: Drew Lock

The Broncos are occasionally connected to Deshaun Watson. They're a team with some offensive talent at the skill positions and a credible defense, but they've got a question mark at quarterback. Former second-rounder Drew Lock started most of the season, and his NFL future is very much in doubt.   more »

The Falcons selected Julio Jones in the first round in 2011. He’s completed 10 NFL seasons. Besides Matt Ryan, who’s the only player who’s thrown a touchdown pass to Julio Jones? answer »

Factoid: T.Y. Hilton

T.Y. Hilton is headed for free agency, and I will be interested to see what kind of market there is for him. He’s been a great receiver for a lot of years, but not so much recently. That will scare off some bidders.  more »

Around the NFL: Wilson and Watson

So who had Russell Wilson being dealt before Deshaun Watson? Neither blockbuster has happened yet, and various representatives and media sources are throwing cold water on the deals happening -- maybe neither one will. But these things take on a life of their own, to the point where it's fair to wonder if it's more a question of when than if, on at least one of the two.   more »

Factoid: Jonathan Taylor

I like the look of Jonathan Taylor for the 2021 season. He got a lot more comfortable in the second half of his rookie season, and I think the Colts will rely on the run extensively.  more »

Around the NFL: Ben Roethlisberger

The Steelers announced yesterday they're bringing back Ben Roethlisberger as their starter in 2021. I probably shouldn't have been surprised, but a lot of recent stories seemed to suggest a split was coming. And in my memory, Roethlisberger's game really tailed off the second half of the season.   more »

What wide receiver in 1995 caught 119 passes for 1,781 yards and 13 TDs but wasn’t invited to the Pro Bowl? No receiver has ever finished with as many catches or yards and not gotten a Pro Bowl nod. answer »

Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

I have been updating my strength of schedule files, and let me share a few numbers while I’ve got them in front of me. Scheduling hasn’t been super meaningful in recent years.  more »

Around the NFL: Packers running backs

Couple of recent stories on Green Bay free agent running back Aaron Jones. One (which I question) indicates he could command up to $15 million per season; that sounds high. Another that Miami could be one of the interested teams. Whatever the case, it seems likely that some team will offer him more than the Packers, and he'll be gone.   more »

Who’s the only player who holds the single-season record for receiving yards for two different franchises? answer »

Around the NFL: J.K. Dobbins

I see where J.K. Dobbins says he’s anxious to build on his rookie season. He wants to carry the ball more and play a bigger role in the offseason. That kind of talk, of course, is always easier in the offseason.  more »

Factoid: Josh Oliver

The Jaguars released Tyler Eifert yesterday. The 30-year-old will likely catch on with some other team, playing as part of a tandem (to keep him healthy) and having the occasional game with 3 receptions for 30 yards, with a touchdown once every 5 or 6 games. Personally I'm more interested in who's left behind.  more »

Trivia: February 23, 2021

What was the only Super Bowl that was played between two teams that no longer exist? (Both franchises are still in the league but both are now operating under different names – for example, the St. Louis Cardinals are now the Arizona Cardinals). answer »
