RENTON, Wash. -- With less than an hour til the 2013 NFL draft, I've put together a chart showing which picks NFC West teams hold and how they acquired those picks.
Those eagerly awaiting the start of NFL free agency March 12 with visions of your favorite team loading up on accomplished veterans should revisit the list of unrestricted free agents NFC West teams signed last season.
Recent draft choices Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright have become very good young linebackers for the Seattle Seahawks.Two linebackers the team did not want on its roster could help the team as well.
HOUSTON -- The question is the same today as it was during the week.Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph will play, but how well? His groin injury hurt his performance in Houston’s last two games, a win at the Jets and a loss to the Packers.
HOUSTON -- The Green Bay Packers have deep, long roots and an impassioned regional and national following.The Houston Texans do not.That had no bearing on Houston as it prepared for tonight’s game at Reliant Stadium against Green Bay.
Trindon Holliday had a great preseason.It didn’t translate to the regular season.The Texans have been bad on special teams, and it will take more than a new return man for them to improve.
Jonathan Vilma and other current/former suspended New Orleans Saints players won reversals Friday.What it means for the NFC West: The decision clears Vilma to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12.
Some observations from the New Orleans Saints’ 34-27 preseason victory against the Houston Texans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Saturday night.
The New Orleans Saints turned to a player familiar with the NFC South to help solve their temporary injury crisis at linebacker.The team announced Monday night it had traded an undisclosed draft pick to Seattle for Barrett Ruud.
SEATTLE -- A few NFC West thoughts from CenturyLink Field as the Seattle Seahawks prepare to open their 2012 exhibition season against the Tennessee Titans: Skies are clear and the temperature is about 80 degrees.
Chris Clemons' decision to skip a mandatory minicamp won't cost him $1 million in 2012 salary, after all.The veteran defensive end reached agreement Monday on a multi-year contract extension to remain with the Seattle Seahawks, according to sources.
Pull up a chair. Now, hand it over to Chase from Arizona and watch him pummel me with it.A good rant can be so cathartic. This one, delivered to the NFC West mailbag, stemmed from my contention that teams tend to sign 35-year-old veterans as backups when they haven't acquired or developed younger alternatives.
In hindsight, one of the biggest mistakes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made last season was letting middle linebacker Barrett Ruud depart in free agency.Now, they might have a shot at getting a better version of Ruud and that could provide a big boost to their defense.
Early thoughts on the Titans' players scheduled to become unrestricted free agents come March 13, with thanks to Mac’s Football Blog, where you can find complete team-by-team lists that include exclusive rights and restricted free agents.
