Super Bowl 57 is here! The biggest event in the known universe. And that can distract us from everything else going on around this wonderful league. A lot of important NFL news and info can slip through the cracks. But don’t fret, my little sports angels, because Fantasy Alarm is here to have your back so you don’t miss a darn thing!

Starting now, and every Friday through the off-season, we’ll do our best to hit on the important NFL news and rumors. We’ll give you the big stuff that breaks, we’ll talk about the transactions that go down, and we’ll make sure to mention any football-related nonsense that made us chuckle. We’ll be here through coaching changes, free agent signings, the 2023 NFL Draft, and NFL training camp, and before you know it, it will be time to kick off once again. No off-season here baby! So let’s get to it!
