Bills Sign TE Jim Dray

The Buffalo Bills announced Wednesday that they’ve signed TE Jim Dray to a contract following his recent visit. It’s worth mentioning that signing to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks. Dray, 29, is a former seventh-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract with the team before signing a three-year deal with...

Where the Browns stand: Defensive Line

This past season brought on a lot of change, including a whole new front office led by Sashi Brown and Paul DePodesta and a new coaching staff led by head coach Hue Jackson.

Cleveland Browns defense shows youthful hope in disappointing season

The Cleveland Browns defense placed close to the bottom in most defensive rankings this season. The team bled yards and points (27 points per game) with an overpaid, old roster. It wasn’t just one position group either. All three levels showed ineptitude at one point this season. Defensive Line Desmond Bryant, Danny Shelton and Randy Starks combined for 105 tackles and 6...

Browns make it four losses in a row, lose to Bengals 31-10

It would have been pretty easy for the Cleveland Browns to just kind of pack it in this week. The final score makes it look like they did, but the Browns had a bit of fight in them. A short week after a brutal game against the Arizona Cardinals, with a bunch of starters missing, when you’re an 11 point underdog on the road, with a horrendous record, is about as bad as it gets heading...

Miami’s star defensive tackle isn’t ready to give up on the 2015 season

Ndamukong Suh was supposed to be the final piece to Miami’s puzzle on defense. Getting rid of Jared Odrick and Randy Starks to make room for Suh seemed like a no-brainer (and it still does). Even though the team has only one sack, Suh hasn’t lost confidence in the teams ability. “People don’t give out sacks. They’re not free. So at the end of the day, you’ve got to go...

After being quite for most of the off-season, the Browns decided to add two 30+ year old free agents this off-season. Starks’ deal isn’t as (2 years, 8 million) as Tramon Williams’ deal, but there’s a reason for that. While Williams has yet to show any real signs of decline going into his age 32 season, Starks has.
