Arizona Cardinals Should Target Free Agent Pierre Thomas
With an aggressive defense and explosive passing game, the Arizona Cardinals started last season with the best record in the NFL at 9-1. Multiple injuries held the team back from making a serious Super Bowl run, but with a majority of their team back for next season, the Cardinals will be a force to be […]

Chicago Bears Make Strong Move Signing Pernell McPhee
Under new head coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, the Chicago Bears are heading towards a major transition on the defensive side of the ball. Fangio is bringing his 3-4 defense to the Windy City, but the Bears have been a traditional 4-3 team for many years. This means that the defense will […]

Chicago Cubs: What Role Will David Ross Play in 2015?
The Chicago Cubs completely revamped their catcher position this offseason. First, by trading for Miguel Montero to be their starting catcher, and then by signing 13-year MLB veteran David Ross to a two-year, $5 million contract. Ross is a career .233/.318/.435 hitter. While he does not give you much offensively, Ross makes up for that with […]

Chicago Cubs: Tsuyoshi Wada an intriguing bullpen option
Perhaps the most interesting position battle for the Chicago Cubs this spring will be the fight for the fifth starter spot. Barring injury, Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta, Jason Hammel and Kyle Hendricks are all guaranteed spots in the starting rotation on Opening Day. Hendricks, who had a 2.46 ERA in 13 starts as a rookie last season, […]

Kansas City Chiefs: 5 2015 NFL Draft Sleepers to Target
The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to get back on track after a disappointing 8-8 season in 2014. The Chiefs have a ton of talent to build around, but they are missing players at key positions that have prevented them from becoming legitimate AFC contenders. The Chiefs have already had an eventful off season that […]

Arizona Cardinals: Running Back Options in 2015 NFL Draft
The Arizona Cardinals have a need at the running back position. Andre Ellington is a talented back with elite change of pace skills, but Ellington proved last season that he was not able to carry a full load as a featured NFL back. The Cardinals’ rushing attack averaged only 81.8 rushing yards per game last […]

2015 NFL Draft: Kansas City Chiefs Must Target QB Brett Hundley
The Kansas City Chiefs seem perfectly willing to go forward with Alex Smith as their starting quarterback. He is a solid quarterback, but his inability to push the ball down the field severely limits his upside. Smith is a guy who is not going to kill you at the quarterback position. He makes smart, conservative […]

Arizona Cardinals: Target 49ers linebacker Michael Wilhoite
Almost unarguably the biggest need on the Arizona Cardinals’ roster is the inside linebacker position. Larry Foote is now a member of the Cardinals’ coaching staff, Daryl Washington’s situation is very murky and Kevin Minter has not progressed like the franchise had hoped when they drafted him as a second-round pick in 2013. The free […]

Arizona Cardinals Should Aggressively Pursue Justin Houston
On Monday, the Kansas City Chiefs applied the franchise tag to their star outside linebacker Justin Houston. Houston was a third round pick by the Chiefs in the 2011 NFL Draft. He has an incredible career up to this point, which has been highlighted by his 22 sack season in 2014. Houston’s 22 sacks were […]

Kansas City Chiefs: First Round Wide Receiver is Not a Must
The Kansas City Chiefs could clearly use some talent infusion at the wide receiver position. After not completing a single touchdown pass to the position throughout the entire 2014 season, wide receiver is a huge need that the team must address throughout the upcoming off season. The Chiefs have already released receivers Donnie Avery and […]
