The AFC East has been simply known as Tom Brady’s playground. A new defensive scheme installed by Defensive Coordinator Mike Pettine will help defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and his teammates prove to everyone that they won’t be pushed around anymore.
Wide receivers in the NFL can either prosper greatly and make a big-time name for themselves or sit quietly in the background and move around from team to team. Kevin Walter is one of the few that has done both, and hopes to excel now with the Titans, since this may be his last chance.
The Redskins organization is hopeful that rookie CB David Amerson will soon become the remedy to a secondary that last season ranked 30th in pass defense. Team officials understand that a cornerback with elite talent can easily mask the deficiencies of an inept secondary.
The Minnesota Vikings traded away four draft picks to move to select Cordarrelle Patterson in the first round. Patterson has already impressed the Vikings coaching staff with his learning ability, speed, size and athleticism. The former Tennessee Volunteer could play a few different roles for the Vikings as a rookie in 2013.
Quarterback Matt Ryan set five Falcons single-season passing records. While impressive, it made the Falcons one-dimensional, relying too much on their aerial attack. With the addition of All-Pro running back Steven Jackson, the Falcons can now be dangerous both through the air and on the ground.
There are a large number of high-profile players who, due to injuries or poor performance, disappointed last season. Here are 10 who are poised to return to form this year.
The Miami Dolphins made their first roster cuts of the preseason Wednesday in order to get down to the mandatory limit of 75 players.
After four consecutive losing years, the franchise’s longest such skid since the 1960s, the Dolphins should be more fun to watch in 2013.
Miami Dolphins fans can exhale a bit because rookie defensive end Dion Jordan returned to practice Tuesday after sitting out much of the last two weeks.
Fans of the Oakland Raiders know the phrase “quarterback competition” almost more than any other in the English language. That is no different for the 2013 season, but Matt Flynn hopes that the competition ends his well-traveled career and ends with him.
