Around the NFL: Jerry Jeudy

Early reports from Broncos camp are favorable for Jerry Jeudy. There's been good chemistry between the second-year wideout and Teddy Bridgewater, the heavy favorite to beat out Drew Lock for the starting job in Denver. How much better might Jeudy be in year 2?  more »


Trivia: June 8, 2021

Who was the last player to finish a season as the highest-scoring wide receiver (PPR scoring) but who otherwise never ranked in the top 10 in scoring at his position? This player was never selected in the regular NFL draft, and he had his big season with his second team (in the ‘90s). answer »


Factoid: Najee Harris

If Najee Harris is going to have a successful rookie season, it will be with the Steelers playing a lot differently than they did last year. Their running backs didn’t really do much of anything in 2020.   more »


Around the NFL: Julio Jones

Julio Jones was traded to the Titans yesterday. There's a lot to unpack with this deal: the winners, the losers, both obvious and not so obvious. Anyway you look at it, though, it's a really nice acquisition for the Titans.   more »


Trivia: June 7, 2021

Who’s the only head coach with at least 20 playoff games who has an all-time losing record in the postseason? answer »


Factoid: Odell Beckham

I don’t expect Odell Beckham will have a big bounce-back season. Cleveland has other receivers who look comparable, and I don’t like the offense.   more »


Around the NFL: J.K. Dobbins

A recent quote from Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman that the team "is going to use all of its running backs" has some concerned about the workload for J.K. Dobbins. If Baltimore is using a three-back committee with Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, it would be hard for Dobbins to put up great numbers. If such quotes cause Dobbins to slip in drafts, good.   more »


Trivia: June 6, 2021

Who was the last player to finish a season as the highest-scoring quarterback (standard scoring) but who otherwise never ranked in the top 10 in scoring at his position? Obviously not looking for a Hall of Fame guy like Brady, Brees or Manning. This was a lesser guy – a former 10th-round pick who just put together one magical season. answer »


Around the NFL: Tua Tagovailoa

There’s been some nice things said about Tua Tagovailoa at the offseason workouts. He knows the offense better. He’s got more confidence. He’s taking charge. The usual kind of stuff. Let’s hope there’s some truth in some of it.  more »


Around the NFL: Mac Jones

So Cam Newton injured his throwing hand on a teammate's helmet at OTAs yesterday. There was a small degree of intrigue -- would this launch the Mac Jones Era? -- but updated reports have it as a minor bone bruise. Newton should be fine; more reps for Jones at these early practices, but that's it.   more »


Trivia: June 5, 2021

In the Super Bowl era, what are the only two franchises have had 20-plus head coaches? answer »


Factoid: A.J. Green

I was surprised when Arizona signed A.J. Green to a $6 million contract. To me, he looks like he’s done: a 32-year-old who can’t do it anymore. But at least one stat suggests things might not be as dire for Green as I have been thinking.   more »

Around the NFL: DJ Chark

No one is really sure what Jacksonville's offense will look like under Urban Meyer. How he'll use his running backs, what the depth chart will look like at tight end, and how the wideouts will be ordered. Meyer had some things to say about potential No. 1 DJ Chark yesterday.   more »


Trivia: June 4, 2021

Who are the only two franchises that have never had a coach win 60 career games for them? The leaders in all-time wins (for a coach) are both still active head coaches in the league right now, but both are currently head coaches for other teams. answer »

Around the NFL: Julio Jones

Reports suggest Seattle has joined the hunt for Julio Jones. One online oddsmaker has even made the Seahawks to favorites (for those who like to bet on such things). That could make some fans of that team to say, “here we go again.”   more »
