The New Orleans Saints went all-in on building around Drew Brees in 2020, but now they face an offseason surrounded with questions as to what the future looks like and how they navigate the most tenuous cap situation in the NFL.
We’ve seen Rodgers look mortal once this season when he threw for just 160 yards and tossed a pair of interceptions against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back in Week 6. Otherwise, this has truly been the best version of Rodgers that we’ve ever seen.
Javonte Williams, was absolutely terrific in 2020, averaging over 7.0 yards per carry and 4.59 yards after contact per carry for the North Carolina Tar Heels. He projects well to the NFL level, making him an intriguing prospect ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Baltimore Ravens waived cornerback Davontae Harris on Monday but his departure from the team may ultimately prove to be short-lived.

Patrick Mahomes was grimacing — and limping — after the Chiefs’ second touchdown Sunday. He injured the big toe on his left foot, needing attention in the blue medical tent in between series. But that became a footnote (pun intended) when the Chiefs’ quarterback departed with a concussion with 7:11 remaining in the third quarter. […]

Eventually, the presumption flipped, with most players making it back to action in the next game after […]

The 2012 offensive […]
