Giants are gambling big on Jason Pierre-Paul

The New York Giants don’t like paying big bucks to anyone, regardless of whether they’re in-house or street free agents. But the G-Men also seem to realize that the window for another Super Bowl is still slightly open with Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr., which might explain why they decided on Monday […]

For Cowboys, decision to part with DeMarco Murray should be easy

DeMarco Murray might only be 27 years old, but he’s coming off a season in which he carried the ball more frequently than all but seven backs in NFL history. Backs who receive as many touches as he did in 2014 are typically cursed, and it also appeared last season was an aberration for a […]

Marshawn Lynch opens up to the media….in Turkey

If you thought Marshawn Lynch was a bizarre character then his latest exploit won’t surprise you. Lynch famously avoided media questions during the Super Bowl and has not been making much noise since the Seattle Seahawks loss in the big game. Marshawn finally opened up to the media this past week but it wasn’t the American media. It […]

What to expect on franchise tag deadline day

On March 2 at 4 p.m. EST, NFL teams will no longer be able to use their franchise tag on a player. While many will decide to avoid the tag because no pending free agent is worth the guaranteed money, others will apply it in the final seconds. Across the league, no player has been […]

Gore and Freeney: Veteran free agents who still have something to offer

Football demands youth spread throughout every roster, because older bodies have endured more punishment, and could break easily. This is not revolutionary thinking, but the salary cap dictates that finding veterans to plug into a specific role is a necessary front-office skill. It separates championship-caliber general managers from the rest. Aging yet still useful talent […]

The Oakland Raiders are finally trending up

Since losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII, the Oakland Raiders have been the epitome of dysfunction and losing. Oakland has not been back to the playoffs since, only twice (2010, 2011) winning more than five games in a season. The franchise has plowed through eight coaches since that fateful afternoon, ranging […]

The Jacksonville Jaguars need to step up

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been an utter embarrassment. Jacksonville has not made the playoffs since 2007 and even worse, has failed to make any real effort to get there. The Jaguars have turned off legions of fans in Florida, forcing the team to tarp off portions of EverBank Field in recent years. After going 9-39 […]

Catching up on latest NFL roster moves

With the new NFL league year approaching, teams are frantically working to square away their rosters before the start of free agency on March 10. By NFL rules, franchises have to be below the $143 million salary cap number by that date, meaning some teams have some cuts to make before re-signing any of their […]

Buffalo Bills wasting their time on Josh McCown

The Buffalo Bills might only be a quarterback away from contending, which explains why they’re reportedly in talks with free-agent pivot Josh McCown. But the reality is there are much better options out there than a 35-year-old coming off a season in which he posted an abysmal passer rating of 70.5, ranking 32th among the 33 […]
