NFL Injury Report:
If the Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns have it their
way, there may be a few trades agreed to early in this year’s NFL Draft. Peter King of Sports Illustrated reports that the Raiders and Browns both want to
trade down from their No. 3 and No. 6 selections.
The Raiders are hoping to add a second-round pick, as they
are without one this year due to their previous trade with the Cincinnati
Bengals for quarterback Carson Palmer.
The Browns also want to trade back, and NFL.com speculates
the move could be used to pick up West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith a few
selections later. There is speculation that Cleveland could be a factor when it
comes to Smith.
This draft is considered weak overall, so the Raiders and
Browns could find a hard time dropping back. However, falling back and
acquiring additional picks would appear to be a good move for either franchise considering
they both has several needs entering the new season.

Peter King of SI.com can’t imagine the Kansas City Chiefs selecting anyone but either Central Michigan left tackle Eric Fisher or Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel with the first overall pick in next week’s draft.
It only makes sense for the Chiefs to take either Fisher or Joeckel with the first pick. Both players are safe picks and can help them right away.
According to Peter King of SI.com, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers “love” West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin and could end up using the 13th overall pick on him, if they don’t trade it to the Jets for Darrelle Revis. Tavon Austin would be a wonderful compliment to Vincent Jackson, who ended up being a great free agent acquisition last year. Need NFL Tickets? var _CI...

When last we left… Peter King, he was lamenting the loss of Roger Ebert, who was apparently to film criticism what Troy Brown was to the Patriots teams of the early to mid Aughts. PK also feigned like he didn’t know what a bunch of fancypants writerly words mean because he’s just like you and me, you see, except incompetent and a millionaire. Finally, Peter discovered the...

The Atlanta Falcons just missed out out on making their second super bowl in franchise history last year, and if they want to get back to the NFC championship they will have to fix their defense.

Ever since LT Branden Albert signed his one-year $9.8 million franchise tender last month, he has been very unhappy with the team for being slow in their attempt to lock him down long term. Albert was seeking a multi-year contract during the offseason and instead was slapped with the franchise tag. Although he would still be making a pretty penny in 2013, Albert is more concerned...
