Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper has been ranked as one of the worst owners in the NFL, and it’s not hard to see why. The 66-year-old billionaire has spent a lot of money on hiring (and firing) head coaches over the years, but other than that, he hasn’t invested much into the franchise, especially when it comes to helping them win games. Following this week’s announcement to their season ticket holders that they are increasing their average ticket price for the 2024 campaign by around 4% from last season, Tepper will certainly make it harder to convince their fans to…

Nick Chubb has been a huge talking point for the Cleveland Browns this offseason. Because he carries a huge cap hit of roughly $15 million to the 2024 NFL season, he has been tipped as a potential cut candidate to save up around $11 million and have only $4 million in dead cap. However, despite this, Cleveland Browns GM Andrew Berry has made it clear that they aren’t giving up on Chubb just yet, which is what he emphasized while speaking to the media recently at the NFL Combine. “I understand that Nick is a popular discussion point. I meant…

Other than Marvin Harrison Jr., Frank Gore Jr. is another legacy prospect to look out for this summer, as he declared for the 2024 NFL Draft after playing four seasons for the Southern Miss Golden Eagles. Frank Gore Jr. is determined to follow in his father’s footsteps since he also plays the running back position. But unlike many other kids of famous athletes who have failed to meet expectations, Frank Gore Jr. has the potential to become one of the best, at least according to his dad. “Very good football player. Tough. Great eyes. Great feet. He’s going to do…

According to ESPN’s Mel Kiper, Detroit has to address its deficiency in the secondary, so he proposed that they should select Iowa State’s TJ Tampa this summer with the 29th overall pick. The Detroit Lions are picking late in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft after coming off arguably their best campaign, but they can still manage to get a starting-caliber player before the second round. “Here’s a corner who might be going a little under the radar. Tampa can start for a team from day one,” wrote Kiper in his latest mock draft. “He played nearly 900…

Even under their new owners, the Washington Commanders were ranked last in a player survey that was recently conducted by the NFL Players Association (NFLPA). The NFLPA just revealed the second set of its annual report cards on Wednesday, which allowed players to grade different aspects of the team’s working conditions, such as the locker room, travel, ownership, and the coaching staff, among others. The Washington Commanders are often criticized for their substandard facilities, which is not a surprise considering their issues under former owner Dan Snyder. With Josh Harris taking over the club last year, the hope is for…

For the New York Giants to have a chance to return to the playoffs next year, they must be able to strengthen their defense, which was ranked 27th overall after conceding an average of 361.7 defensive yards per game and 48 touchdowns during the regular season. One key area to improve on is their pass rush. Yes, they have a good piece in Kayvon Thibodeaux, but pairing him up with another top-notch defender would certainly help them a ton, and PFF’s Brad Spielberger has an interesting idea. Leonard Floyd is set to hit free agency this summer after spending one…

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a chance to form a potent defensive duo this offseason, and The Athletic’s Alec Lewis has an intriguing idea. In his article last week, Lewis listed the Jacksonville Jaguars as a potential landing spot for Danielle Hunter, who is going to hit free agency this offseason, as well as the Chicago Bears and the Arizona Cardinals. “And then there are the Jaguars, who have expressed interest in Hunter in the past year. They do not have endless cap space for 2024, but they could creatively structure Hunter’s deal to fit their current timeline,” wrote Lewis. “Jacksonville’s…

With roughly $82 million in cap space, the Washington Commanders are capable of pulling off their biggest coup yet by acquiring a proven pass-rusher to shore up their defense. On Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they would release Shaquil Barrett because of his hefty cap charge. The two-time Pro Bowler was due a $15.04 million bonus next month, and releasing him would give them nearly $5 million in cap relief. Barrett, 31, was a key contributor to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl-winning defense in 2020. His best individual season there was in 2019, where he recorded career-highs…

After yet another underwhelming season with the Chicago Bears, Darnell Mooney might find himself wearing a different uniform next year since he’s going to be a free agent this offseason. Since breaching the 1,000-yard threshold in 2021, Mooney had career lows across the board. In 2022, he only had 40 receptions for 493 receiving yards and two touchdowns, and in 2023, Mooney only had 31 receptions for 414 receiving yards and one touchdown. With roughly $80 million in cap space, the Chicago Bears will have the chance to fully rebuild their roster. In theory, Darnell Mooney’s production can be easily…

David Bakhtiari is adamant that he’s not yet done with the game of football because he wants to walk away from the game on his terms. “When I want to look back, do I want to look at the guy who got injured and was like ah, that’s good enough?” said Bakhtiari a few months ago. “If that’s not me, then the future, older me is gonna be pissed at the younger me like, ‘You f—ing quitter.” The Green Bay Packers have a huge decision about the three-time Pro Bowler. If the team decides to keep him on March 13…
