The main reason why being, simply, we have no idea. Contract details...

Juice This: The Secret to NFL Sucksess

A lot of movement around the NFL, but is it musical chairs? Is it rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic? Everyone seems to think that someone else’s semi-successful NFL quarterback can do the same for their team when usually all they can do is make someone else’s team that much more semi-sucksessful.I mean, seriously, is Case Keenum going to do for the Broncos what Peyton Manning...

Report: Frank Gore leaves Lions without contract

It looked as though running back Frank Gore would sign with the Detroit Lions. But that’s not the case just yet. In fact, after visiting with them, he would leave without said contract. At 34, Gore can still play. But from Detroit’s standpoint, this probably makes sense. Why jump at signing him when other running backs remain available? Still, there’s hardly a more consistent back...

Earlier this morning I posted the first half of this piece on free agent fits for the offense. That article can be found here. Now it’s time to switch over the side of the ball that needs much more work: the 27th total ranked defense of 2017.
