The New Orleans Saints had a vastly improved defense in the NFL in 2013, but it never hurts to get a bit more veteran leadership and skill onto the roster. That’s what they did by adding Champ Bailey during the offseason, and he is looking for a Super Bowl ring before his stories career ends.

Jacksonville Jaguars Place All Of Their Eggs In Basket Of Blake Bortles

It may be ugly at times in 2014, but Bortles will be unnerved and will benefit by going through any growing pains this fall as the Jaguars have much work to do before competing in the AFC South.

Major NFL Rule Changes For 2014 Season

The biggest rule change of the 2014 NFL season won’t require a single edit in the rule book. That’s because, technically, it’s not a change.

Sharrif Floyd Looks To Continue Vikings Tradition Of Good Defensive Tackles

The Minnesota Vikings have a long tradition of having very good defensive tackles. They drafted Sharrif Floyd in the first round of the 2013 draft in hopes that he can continue the trend.

Browns Hope Johnny Manziel Keeps Focus On Field Instead Of Off

Johnny Manziel fell a lot further than anyone would have expected at the NFL Draft, but he landed right where the Cleveland Browns wanted him to fall. Now, the focus needs to stay on the field instead of off it, and Manziel could up bringing an excitement that the Browns have not seen in decades.

Stevie Johnson Returns Home To Round Out 49ers Receiving Core And Silence Critics

The 49ers’ acquisition of wide receiver Stevie Johnson is a win for both the team and player. San Francisco gets what they hope is the final missing piece to their passing game, while Johnson gets the chance to return home and not only play for a contender, but play in a market where his talents will not go un-noticed.
