The Dallas Cowboys will continue to look to get over the hump in 2024. Following an extremely disappointing end to their 2023 campaign, the Dallas Cowboys will yet again look ahead to the off-season with more questions than answers. Tailback Tony Pollard’s future as well as building the rest of the off-season around franchise QB, Dak Prescott will be the biggest points of emphasis for Jerry Jones and co. From ESPN: “Gallup has never quite come back from the ACL injury he suffered near the end of the 2021 season. Last season, he was the clear third among the Cowboys’…

How will the New England Patriots improve heading into 2024? It’s no mystery that the New England Patriots need a ton of help if they’re to get back to their heyday. However, with seemingly every position being a massive need on the offensive side of the ball, how will Jerod Mayo kick off his tenure as the man in charge in Foxboro? Will the third overall pick be a quarterback or will Mayo and co. decide to build around the rest of the roster before adding the franchise’s next signal caller? From ESPN: “The obvious move for the Patriots is to…

Even if the Philadelphia Eagles had a respectable run last season, there were alleged cases of tension and strife in the locker room. And if head coach Nick Sirianni’s involvement in the termination of Dom DiSandro is to be believed, NFL fans may have a good reason to be outraged. Just recently, a report stated that Sirianni was involved in a number of arguments with the players and members of his staff on the sidelines. This development comes after Dom DiSandro, the Eagles’ head of security, was suspended due to an altercation with Dre Greenlaw in December of last year.…

Without a doubt, last season’s campaign ranks among the worst in the Chicago Bears’ history as a franchise. While there are a lot of factors to consider, Matt Eberflus and the coaching staff are some of the biggest reasons why the team didn’t perform well. Before the previous season began, the Bears had a 3-14 record in 2022. In 2023, that record improved to 7-10, placing them last in the NFC North division together with the Minnesota Vikings. Throughout that run, the Bears ranked 18th out of 32 teams when it came to offense. Chicago’s defense was also 20th in…

Even though the Baltimore Ravens failed to make the Super Bowl, the team had a pretty good run last season. While Lamar Jackson is the obvious reason why they’re so good, credit should also be given to Jon Harbaugh and the entire coaching staff. The Ravens finished last season on top of the AFC North division with a 13-4 record. Despite suffering major injuries to Trayvon Mullen, Nick Moore, J.K. Dobbins, Mark Andrews, and Keaton Mitchell, Baltimore’s core still held on throughout the regular season. Throughout that time, the Ravens led the entire NFL in points per game, sacks, and…

After losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in the most recent Super Bowl,  the San Francisco 49ers are back to the drawing board this offseason. Chase Young, in particular, is one of the pieces that need to be assessed carefully before the next season starts. Selected second overall by the Washington Commanders in the 2020 NFL Draft, Young entered the league with a four-year $34.56 million contract attached to his name. Rightfully so, because the defensive end proved to be capable of holding his position against opposing squads. In his first year in the NFL, Young became the only rookie…

Every team in the NFL is carefully assessing which free agent will be the best fit for them during the offseason. But if a high-risk, high-reward scenario is to be considered, front offices may want to take a look at signing Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Baker Mayfield. Selected first by the Cleveland Browns in the 2018 Draft, Mayfield spent four years with the team before playing one season each for the Carolina Panthers and Los Angeles Rams. After those short stints, the Buccaneers went ahead and signed the former number-one pick to another one-year contract last season. During that time,…

Mitch Trubisky has certainly been around the league long enough to know how the business works. What he didn’t expect, though, was when the Pittsburgh Steelers asked him to do something weird after the franchise drafted Kenny Pickett in 2022. After being selected with the second-overall pick in 2017 by the Chicago Bears, Trubisky spent one season playing backup to Josh Allen in 2021. The following year, the quarterback signed a two-year contract with the Steelers, which was the same season Pickett was drafted by the team. During that time, Trubisky thought Pittsburgh was giving him an opportunity to get…

After being eliminated by the Buffalo Bills in the playoffs, the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to reinforce their lineup, especially in the backup quarterback position. In this regard, the team is reportedly eyeing the Chicago Bears’ Justin Fields to fulfill that need. The Bears, in particular, didn’t have a good run after finishing fourth in the NFC North division with a 7-10 record. Despite not making the playoffs, Fields finished the season with 2,562 yards, 16 touchdowns, nine interceptions, and a 61.4 percent completion rating. The Steelers, meanwhile, have been enamored with Fields since before he entered the league in…
