Three positions that the Philadelphia Eagles upgraded this offseason

A couple of days ago I shared a story about ESPN’s grades for the Philadelphia Eagles offseason moves. Overall they came up with a B, with most of the concern being over potential injuries to Sam Bradford. Quarterback is a big question mark and I don’t know how all the pieces will fit together on the field, but I do know that the Eagles have upgraded significantly at at least...

How Cary Williams and Will Blackmon will fit with the Seattle Seahawks

Following the end of their second Super Bowl run in as many years, the Seattle Seahawks secondary was battered and short-handed. Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor and Jeremy Lane were all injured and then Byron Maxwell left for the Philadelphia Eagles. Suddenly, things didn’t look so good for the legion of boom. Reinforcements came when they signed two free agent cornerbacks...

Seattle Seahawks sign CB Cary Williams

The Eagles cut Cary Williams earlier this off-season, but that doesn’t mean that he’s not still a starting caliber player in the NFL. The Eagles were simply in the middle of a massive roster makeover and were cutting anyone that thought wasn’t worth his salary in an effort to free up as much cap space as possible for this off-season. The Eagles used some of their large amount...

New Seattle Seahawks corner Cary Williams knows what he needs to work on

I had the privilege to watch a lot of Philadelphia’s games this past season in my role as the editor of our Eagles blog. They’re a fun team to watch and Chip Kelly is the most interesting character in the league at the moment. One recurring theme I saw (and read a great deal about) was the utter failure of Philly’s starting cornerbacks. Bradley Fletcher (now with the Patriots...

Packers Cornerback Position: Panic time?

The Green Bay Packers have already lost cornerback Devon House to a big money contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars (showing why the Jaguars are the Jaguars). The physical cornerback would have been a candidate to replace fellow free agent Tramon Williams if/when he left. Williams, the Packers starter and best cover corner, supposedly rejected the Packers offer of a two year contract...

Packers Should Be Careful Playing Waiting Game with Tramon Williams

If I was going to give the Green Bay Packers a grade on their offseason up to this point, it would have to be an A. But, that grade could easily be dropped down to a B if the Packers were to let Tramon Williams depart as a free agent, leaving themselves vulnerable at cornerback, one of the NFL’s most important positions. Yes, getting back Randall Cobb and Bryan Bulaga was huge...

The Seattle Seahawks And The Free Agent Field

Free agency begins on March 10th and all indicators point to the Seattle Seahawks being very active. While the Seahawks don’t have a mountain of money to spend like the Oakland Raiders ($63 million), they do have a respectable $30 million available to retool an already impressive Super Bowl roster. It is hard to pin-point exactly who the Seahawks will pursue in free agency as the...
