Many teams are rumored to be interested in Griffin, but the early front runners include the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys. Although his future destination is unknown, one thing is certain, Griffin will not be the quarterback for Washington in 2016. Analysis: Greg Jewett
C.J. Anderson said he believes Peyton Manning "should ride off into the sunset" after Denver's Super Bowl victory.
It would appear teammate C.J. Anderson agrees with the overwhelming narrative at the end of Super Bowl 50. His quotes about QB Peyton Manning "riding off into the sunset" would be appropriate especially in light of the recent USA Today article accusing Manning of covering up an incident while in college. As to his statistics, Manning had his lowest quarterback rating since his rookie year with a 67.9 for the 2015 season. He had 17 interceptions against nine touchdowns in the regular season and was reduced to a game manager in the Super Bowl. Perception would tell you going out on top is the best, Manning could be wise to do so. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Coach Adam Gase could give quarterback Ryan Tannehill more freedom and control of the offense.
If Adam Gase can help turn around Jay Cutler, he may be able to teach Ryan Tannehill some new tricks as well. Tannehill did surpass 4,000 yards for the second consecutive season in 2015, but since entering the league in 2012, no quarterback has been sacked more times. When Gase arrived in Chicago, he cut down Cutler's sacks to 29 last year from 38 the season prior. For perspective, Tannehill was sacked 45 times last year. In an effort to keep Tannehill upright, Gase will try to provide his young quarterback with more freedom and to make quicker reads. Gase has extensive background with offensive sets and should make the Dolphins attack more fluid. Tannehill was ranked 21st of 32 quarterbacks in both completion percentage (61.9) and quarterback rating (88.7) in 2015. With a new coach and opportunity, here is hoping that Tannehill can take a step forward in his development. Analysis: Greg Jewett
