Four Potential Candidates to Be Next Bears GM

The Chicago Bears are in the market for a general manager, after former GM Phil Emery was fired on Monday. Emery made some good moves, but ultimately he made more bad than good.

He also signed Jay...

These 10 sleepers could challenge the Baltimore Ravens for a 2014 playoff spot

One of the great things about the NFL is that nearly every team can make a case for the upcoming season being “their year.” That’s because every campaign sees plenty of worst-to-first turnarounds, where non-playoff teams from the year before suddenly find themselves in postseason contention down the stretch. Some of this is nothing more than false hope, summertime bravado that...

Ravens turn 7th rounder into 6th for “Rolando McClain”

Ozzie Newsome seems to have done it again. On face value, trading a former top-10 pick and a seventh round pick for a sixth rounder isn’t anything to get excited about.  The only thing is, most former top-10 picks haven’t sat out one and a half seasons. The Ravens signed McClain before last season in hopes of turning his once immense talent into some tangible production.  What...
