Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden and his struggling offensive line might be in for a world of hurt against the Baltimore Ravens on “Thursday Night Football.” Even with the losses of edge rusher Jarrett Johnson to San Diego in the offseason and Terrell Suggs due to an Achilles injury, the Ravens are still finding ways to rush the passer because of their scheme. Their ability to confuse protections by providing different looks and disguising their blitzes makes up for their lack of premier pass rushers. They are proficient with twists and stunts while bringing pressure off the edge, which leaves offensive lines in disarray and often leaves a lineman on air while a free rusher clobbers the QB. The Browns’ […]

Heading into this offseason, the Cardinals must address their offensive shortcomings. Whether they shoot for the stars with Peyton Manning, or make less flashy moves with their $10 million in cap space…
In our first look in to the Seahawks’ offseason, we focused on a few teams needs, including running back, defensive end and linebacker. But for every team, the biggest questions always revolve around the quarterback.
The Seahawks are expected to be well over the salary cap, and a large chunk of that cash might be reinvested to patch up a dearth of contract players at running back, defensive end and linebacker.
The Chiefs might be hanging just outside of the top 10 in this year’s draft, but, unlike most teams atop the board, they are only a few pieces away from competing within their division.
With $33 million in cap space, and the 10th overall pick in the draft, the Bills have a chance to remedy some of the ills of their mid-season losing streak.

Ron Rivera’s Carolina Panthers need to improve their run defense through this year’s draft.
The Miami Dolphins are a team with much still to be decided, including who will play quarterback and how it will shift to a 4-3 defense.
For any team that drafts a quarterback in the first round, next year’s offseason has to be about solidifying your squad around that player. Now, a year into their term with Blaine Gabbert at the helm, the Jaguars need to amplify the strengths of their prized signal caller and do their best to work around some of his weaknesses.
Far be it for us to speculate what the Redskins will do in the offseason. So, instead of trying to séance with Dan Snyder’s money and figure out where it will go, let’s try and find a few places where it might be well-placed.
Following a 10-6 season in 2010, Raheem Morris nicknamed the Buccaneers “Youngry” because of their talented stock of up-and-comers. That promise didn’t pan out in 2011, leaving Morris without a job and incoming head coach Greg Schiano with decisions on what to make of his young first-team (which averaged less than 26 years old coming into the year).
The Browns tilted the balance of their draft picks to the defensive side of the ball last year, but after a dreadful season offensively, this offseason will probably have to be pushed in the other direction.
What route the Vikings take with the No. 3 overall pick in the draft will determine their course of action in free agency.
