The Ravens have had very little time to bask in the glory of winning the Super Bowl. Within thirty days, the Ravens had to take steps to re-sign impending free agent, Super Bowl MVP quarterback, Joe Flacco. In doing so, they made him the highest paid player in the NFL! Now, with a key player back in the fold, the Ravens were expected to have a tough time re-signing other key free agent players, most of who were in high demand. The team’s biggest unrestricted free agents included FS Ed Reed, LB Dannell Continue reading

The Rams came so far under new head coach Jeff Fischer whose team improved from a league worst 2-14, to a respectable 7-8-1. The Rams not just a team on the rise, but a team being transformed. This off-season, more work remained for the Rams. Both wide receivers Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson were unrestricted free agents. It was also about time to protect Sam Bradford and improve upon a Rams rushing attack ranked nineteenth in terms of yardage. With running back Steven Jackson moving on Continue reading
The Titans had a lot of work to do this off-season. The Titans finished the 2012 season with one of the worst offenses (tenth least in points scored) and defenses (most points allowed) in the league. Much like 2011, the Titans lacked defensive and offensive consistency. The Titans pass protection struggled, allowing the twelfth most sacks at 39. Suffice it to say, the Titans needs entering free agency were aplenty. Continue reading
After a terrible start, the Saints salvaged their 2012 season, finishing 7-9. This was despite the fact the Saints defense was one of the league’s worst in points allowed and yards allowed (total, passing, and rushing). On defense, the Saints never quite found themselves last season. Upon being reinstated by the league, and shortly after rejoining the team, Sean Payton took immediate steps to Continue reading

Even though the Bears finished the 2012 season with a 10-6 record, the Bears offensive line was exposed again in 2012, allowing 44 sacks, eighth most among all teams. In addition, when free agency was about to begin, there was a need at the guard position where the starting right guard, and back-up right guard and left guard are all free agents, along with the back-up right tackle. One way or another, the Bears needed to add Continue reading
Keith Grieve and Steve Taylor gets a visit from Jim Saranteas of TheFantasyGreek.com. They talk about the sudden retirement of third-year veteran, Ravens Rolando McClain, and what it means for the Ravens, as well as the breaking news out of New York, that Jets David Garrard will be hanging it up too, retiring after a nine-season career!

You don’t have to tell fans that the Cowboys were a huge disappointment yet again in 2012. It’s the same old story. On paper, the Cowboys look like one of the most promising teams in the league, a team that should at least make the playoffs. The Cowboys could take the field tomorrow with a full roster. So, this off-season was about upgrades for the Cowboys and building quality depth. This off-season was about trying to get back to what made this team great. It’s about getting back to not only believing you’re the best, or saying you’re the best, but being the best. Continue reading
The Dolphins finished the 2012 season with a 7-9 win/loss record. Yet, the Dolphins could be a team on the cusp of turning things around! Entering free agency, the Dolphins had roughly $40-plus million in salary cap space. But, the Dolphins had seven starters that were free agents on March 12th including, among others, RB Reggie Bush, LT Jake Long, WR Brian Hartline, and DB Sean Smith. Like 2011, the Dolphins defense had its moments where it looked like one of the better defenses in the league, especially their rush defense. The Dolphins defense was also top-ten in least points allowed at 19.8 per game. The offense, on the other hand Continue reading
