The Giants have made a concerted effort to bring in as much corner back help as humanly possible this off-season. They started by giving Janoris Jenkins a huge free agent contract, used their 10th pick overall to draft Eli Apple, and not to mention they still have Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the roster. I guess you can say that a team can never have enough good corners and Hall is considered one of the best slot defenders in the league. He is still currently recovering from surgery to repair a "disc injury" in his back.
The Browns may have brought in Robert Griffin III this off-season but that does not mean he will be their Week 1 starter. Hue Jackson has made it perfectly clear all off-season that the Browns starting quarterback job is up for grabs. Josh McCown, Robert Griffin III, Austin Davis, Connor Shaw and rookie Cody Kessler will all have an opportunity at the job.
Here is what we call a draft causality. The Chiefs loaded up in the draft and felt that Gordon was not worth holding up a roster spot. He was signed earlier this off-season for depth at the linebacker position. He is still only 24 years old, he should find another home.
Wynn didn't play last season due to a torn ACL and after just 17 career tackles with the Bills, they decided to cut ties with the defensive lineman. He would likely be nothing more than position depth for his new team, if he even gets a deal.
Liuget wants to slim down, presumably to play the game quicker and faster. San Diego shouldn't have a problem with that, as long as he continues to clog up the middle. Liuget recorded 34 tackles and three sacks last season.
Atlanta needs help in the middle of its defense and Jones could be an immediate impact there. He lead his team last season with 100 tackles and 13.5 tackles for loss. Also, he recorded five sacks, two picks and three pass breakups. He's going to have to adjust to the NFL, but he has a lot of potential.
Interesting development, but regardless of who or what is at fault, Rolle is still down with a knee injury. He's said he wants to "bust their ass". Their meaning the Chicago Bears, because he was released following the injury. He has little fantasy value in IDP formats.
This should come as no surprise, as the Buccaneers took a kicker – Roberto Aguayo – in the second round of last weekend's NFL Draft. Aguayo will prove to be an instant upgrade over Barth, as he finished his Florida State career as the most accurate kicker in NCAA history.
The 6-foot-4, 230 LBS German freak of nature is the first straight from Europe product to ever be drafted to an NFL team. His tape was spectacular – however against competition that appeared less skilled than a Rhode Island Pop Warner squad – but in any event, his 4.43 40-time is not something that can be misleading. The guy is incredibly gifted athletically, and the Vikings are a stable enough franchise that can bring him along slowly. The heartwarming aspect of this story is that since he first began following American Football, Boehringer has been a fan of the Vikings and Adrian Peterson the most. It is a great day for the NFL that they can make a fan's wish come true, especially one from overseas.
