Data scientist Eric Eager uses the PFF Elo rating system to identify the NFL teams that have most frequently been "elite," the NFL teams that have most frequently been "poor," and the rate at which teams tend to transition between the two extremes.

Hall of Fame G.M. Ron Wolf recently decried “diva” quarterbacks who want to disregard long-term contracts and secure trades to new teams.

This year, NFL teams already have traded […]
