CURTIS LOFTON RUMORS

Ben Heenley offers the Raiders depth and special teams upgrade

With their first of two fifth round picks, the Oakland Raiders drafted linebacker Ben Heenley out of Kansas. The Raiders have their starting linebacker positions taken with Khalil Mack, Curtis Lofton and Sio Moore but their depth is questionable. With Heenley the Raiders have a guy who can back up all three spots but doesn’t have much potential to be anything more than just a backup...

Tale of the Tape: new #Raiders LB Curtis Lofton

Curtis Lofton signing his Raiders contract Photo courtesy of Raiders.com Over the last day I’ve watched a few Saints games to get a sense of new Raiders LB Curtis Lofton – what are his strengths and weaknesses and how does he project onto the Raiders unit? I came away with a mostly favorable impression of the 8 year veteran but with some definite concerns as well. First, Lofton...

Oakland Raiders sign MLB Curtis Lofton

Curtis Lofton finished 4th in the NFL in tackles with 145 last season. Given the size of this deal, 18 million over 3 years with 10 million guaranteed, I assume the Raiders didn’t actually watch Lofton play last season and just looked at the tackle stats. His 22 missed tackles led the NFL regardless of position and a lot of his tackles were him cleaning up broken plays after big...

Saints release Curtis Lofton

Curtis Lofton’s time as a Saint is over. The release doesn’t come as a complete shock given the rumored news he was being shopped for a trade, but prior to that I would have never guessed the Saints would let him go this offseason. To me he was the one guy you would keep on that defense. I’ll wait to see how they build the roster before making full judgment on this, but at...

Saints possibly shopping Curtis Lofton in a trade

This seems crazy to me. This is the one guy I would think you want to keep. We’ll see what happens, though.   The #Saints are shopping LB Curtis Lofton, who had 144 tackles in 2014 and has played in 16 games every year of his career. Unexpected. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 4, 2015

Curtis Lofton is the jack-of-all-trades that makes the New Orleans Saints defense tick

Last year, the Saints defense became notorious for their rotational nature and their ability to confuse quarterbacks based on personnel. However, there was one constant amongst these rotations. Middle/inside linebacker Curtis Lofton (aka the only Falcon we’ve ever loved) is an unsung hero in the Saints defense. Everyone talks about Rob Ryan and the Saints secondary, but the things...

New Orleans Saints: State of the inside linebacker positionWith the improvement of the New Orleans Saints’ defense, most of the attention has gone to the younger talent in the secondary and defensive line. However, one position that gets somewhat lost in the shuffle is the play of the inside linebacker position, led by veterans Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne. Lofton, one of...

New Orleans Saints: Offseason adventures

In my previous articles, I have discussed what the New Orleans Saints have been up to football-wise during the offseason. It’s been pretty stressful for the Saints Organization as far as finding room in the budget for all of their best players. But while the offseason can be stressful for the brass (and some players), this is a time when players have no restriction to how they...
