Trivia: March 26, 2020

Lamar Jackson finished last season with a combined 43 touchdowns – 36 passing and 7 rushing. Who are the only active quarterbacks who have had a season with even more combined touchdowns? answer »


Around the NFL: Veteran RB backups

A pair of veteran running backs have landed with new teams in recent days – Dion Lewis to the Giants, Peyton Barber to Washington. Expectations should be low for both.  more »


Factoid: Breshad Perriman

Probably the two best wideouts remaining on the free agent market signed yesterday. Robby Anderson agreed to a deal with Carolina, and hours later it was reported that Breshad Perriman agreed to a slightly cheaper deal with the team that lost Anderson, the Jets.   more »


Trivia: March 25, 2020

Cordarrelle Patterson has run for over 100 yards the last three years for three different teams – Raiders, Patriots, Bears. Originally a first-round pick by Minnesota, Patterson had multiple seasons there with 100 rushing yards, too. Who was the last other wide receiver who had 100-yard rushing seasons for different teams? answer »

Around the NFL: Pats axe Gostkowski

The Patriots have released Stephen Gostkowski. That puts them in the market for a kicker while officially ending the highest-scoring run by a player at that position in league history.  more »


Around the NFL: Marcus Mariota

Oakland signed Marcus Mariota yesterday, to a two-year deal worth over $17 million, with $7.5 million guaranteed in 2020. Make no mistake: this is backup quarterback money. The only starting quarterbacks who will make less than him this season are on their rookie deals. But it does present competition for Derek Carr.   more »

Factoid: Sanders, part 2

I’m a day late, but let me chime in on Emmanuel Sanders. I do have a couple of thoughts on him landing with the Saints.  more »


Andy Richardson: Waiting for Winston

I'm surprised that no one has signed Jameis Winston. I get that he throws a lot of interceptions, so NFL decision-makers have a different perspective on the guy than me, a fantasy football writer. But if you can set aside the turnovers (and clearly Bruce Arians couldn't), he's been pretty impressive.   more »


Trivia: March 23, 2020

Ravens, Saints, Bucs, Seahawks, Cowboys and Kansas City. What was the only other offense last year that finished with 30 touchdown passes? answer »


Factoid: Patriots sans Brady

The Patriots are moving into the post-Brady era. Now what? Will they go after a big-name quarterback in the offseason?  more »


Around the NFL: Emmanuel Sanders

Emmanuel Sanders signed with the Saints yesterday. It's a little surprising that San Francisco didn't make a huge effort to bring him back; they must be very comfortable with what they have behind Deebo Samuel, or will be adding someone early in the draft. Sanders definitely fills a need area for New Orleans.   more »


Trivia: March 22, 2020

A.J. Brown went over 1,000 receiving yards last year while averaging over 20 yards per catch. Who was the last other rookie receiver to do this? Said player once competed in the Olympics. answer »

Around the NFL: Bad news Bears

Bill O’Brien has pretty much sewn up the title as the league’s worst GM. Tough to outdo giving away one of the game’s very best receivers for a second-round pick and a bad running back contract. But Ryan Pace is making a little noise himself in the Windy City.  more »


Around the NFL: Steelers sign Ebron

Eric Ebron signed with the Steelers yesterday, and that's an intriguing landing spot. The days of Heath Miller aren't too far in the rearview mirror, and even Vance McDonald and Jesse James combined for over 1,000 yards in 2018. The potential for strong numbers is there.   more »
