Burfict is leaving the Bengals weakest position group and I am fine with it. He has such a weird combination right now, he gets baited by guys all the time to do something stupid (which he avoided almost all of last year), but he half assed on so many plays now and I'm not sure if he was concerned about his reputation or just doesn't give a shit anymore. And he usually injures himself on a lot of tackles.

Enjoy the roller coaster because when it's high it's fucking awesome. It's pretty cool he injured Ben, Bell and AB in two games in one season, but I don't think he has much left and if he does he'll miss games due to suspension.

Can't top out much better then the catch he made in that Super Bowl. Injuries riddled him a lot but when he was healthy, he was maybe the most dominant TE I've seen. His run blocking tends to be underrated, given his greatness as a receiver, but he could hammer dudes when willing.

Also WR Jeremy Maclin announced his retirement from the NFL.

I like it, but I'm just afraid that it will slow the game down even more and create additional "dead spots." For a league that wants to promote the offenses they sure don't mind taking excessive time tediously reviewing plays and calls.

Though some of the other rules do sound like shit. I'm not a blocking on kickoffs expert but it sounds lame.

Serious question from years of rules being modified to where I don't understand things anymore.

What's the difference between a blindside block and a block to the back? The terms have the same meaning from a literal standpoint but there must be some sort of difference if this is a rule "change".

From what I've seen on TV, 'technically' there isn't much difference. But in terms of application, the block in the backs tend to strictly be from players being blocked in the back and pushed forward (most often on punt returns by the receiving team trying to push their gunner around the return man). That's also why you'll see guys lift both hands up when the opponent tumbles to the ground directly in front of them to avoid this call.

The blindside block, for all intents & purposes, is a blindside hit. Usually a player peels looking for a defenseless player usually out of the picture in terms of making a play and wallops them with a forearm/shoulder/helmet to the head area.

St. Brown's hit on McCain is an example.

The Raiders just signed Isaiah Crowell, who should fit in as part of an RBBC. If their offense sucks this year I don't even know man. They have talent across the board now. Carr really picked it up at the end of last season, the improvements in the offseason are drastic. They should be able to score a lot of points.

They also signed LB Brandon Marshall. The defense doesn't have much in terms of pass rush, but there are some good cover guys and thumpers on the team now. Really looking forward to draft day.

The Raiders should spend the first of those four picks on one of Williams, Oliver, and Bosa in that order. The second/third one on Ferrell or Simmons. Then the other one of those two late firsts on a tight end.

Dolphins continue to shed talent, accumulate draft picks, and act like they really aren't tanking ;) as they dealt Robert Quinn to Dallas for a 2020 6th Round pick.

Speaking of the Patriots coaching staff, they did hire Jerod Mayo to help work with the LBs.

They're not bad but black is not one of our colors and all of the black accents should be white. The helmet, for instance, has a pretty good shell but if the facemask were white and not black they'd look great. The numbers and lettering are fine I guess. The white jersey/green pants combo looks good. Get rid of that black alternate though, yikes.

Not looking like a deal is going to get done between the Seahawks and Wilson. Apparently Wilson wants a contract that when the cap increases by whatever percentage, so too does his contract increase by that percentage.

So yeah, not seeing a deal getting done.

Wilson got paid as expected: "Seahawks signed Russell Wilson to a four-year, $140 million extension through 2023. The deal includes a massive $65 million signing bonus with $107 million in total guarantees."

Done at the last minutes from what I heard. Seahawks got Wilson to walk away from the % cap hit, probably because more guarantees.

Patriots agreed to terms with WR Demaryius Thomas on a one-year contract worth up to $6 Million (likely incentive based). Reunites Thomas and McDaniels while keeping with New England's typical low risk/high reward contract tactics. If Thomas doesn't show anything, New England can cut him fairly cheap or get a good season at a cheaper cost compared to other bigger names who were on the market.

NFL Schedule is being leaked. Patriots have the Steelers, Ravens, and Chiefs on the docket. Also opening the year against the AFC East for the most part as well as closing out against the Jets and Bills IIRC the final 2 weeks.

Update on the Bears off-season place kicking news.

Bears waived Redford Jones and John Baron following rookie mini-camp this past weekend.

Today the Bears have traded for Eddy Pineiro. In exhange, the Raiders will get a 7th round pick IF he plays in a certain number of games for the Bears this season.

Pineiro will join the kicking competition with mini-camp kicking survivors Chris Blewitt and Elliott Fry.

The Jets deserve all the criticism for the timing of this—amazing that they let him oversee this much of an offseason, with that amount of cap—but can’t say MacCagnan hasn't dug his own grave.

He’s hit on several first rounders, but after that, the roster depth produced from the draft has been horrendous. And this is a GM who was hired for his scouting ability.


Edit: lol and Gase has already traded Darren Lee to KC for a 6th rounder.

Patriots are bringing back Jamie Collins into the fold. Apparently Jerod Mayo was a key factor in this move.

Guy had a ton of talent but freelanced and worked himself out of the Patriots and over to Cleveland when he was traded. Not sold that Collins has changed his attitude/demeanor but we'll see. If the deal is minimal, it sounds like Collins will have to prove himself as willing to play by the book to stick on the roster/find time on the field. Best case scenario is Belichick uses him better, he buys into the team first mentality, and we get Patrick Chung 2.0.
