Sharrif Floyd Looks To Continue Vikings Tradition Of Good Defensive Tackles

The Minnesota Vikings have a long tradition of having very good defensive tackles. They drafted Sharrif Floyd in the first round of the 2013 draft in hopes that he can continue the trend.

Major NFL Rule Changes For 2014 Season

The biggest rule change of the 2014 NFL season won’t require a single edit in the rule book. That’s because, technically, it’s not a change.
