2015 NFL countdown: 12 days until kickoff and Cardinals jersey No. 12

So...close... The regular season begins for the Arizona Cardinals in 12 days. 12 has been a decent number for a few years. Who has worn it? It is the number that currently belongs to John Brown, who has a heap of expectations upon him by many. It will be Year 2 for him. He was an impact player for the team as season ago and many believe his potential has no ceiling as a receiver. Before Brown, it was the number Andre Roberts wore. Another third round pick, he was solid for four seasons. Quarterback Josh McCown, who was a part-time starter for the Cardinals between 2002 and 2005, also wore...

2015 NFL roster cuts: Rob Crisp waived by Arizona Cardinals, roster down to 75

The offensive lineman was intriguing to the team. The Arizona Cardinals announced the final roster move to get their roster down to the required 75 players. After letting go of 10 players and waiving/injured one player, the team released one final player -- undrafted rookie tackle Rob Crisp. Crisp signed with the Cardinals after he went undrafted out of North Carolina State. One can imagine the Cardinals thought highly of him when they signed him. He was given a $15,000 signing bonus. Teams have a total of $86,000 they can use to sign undrafted rookies. The only player to get a bigger...

Should the Panthers sign DT Phil Taylor?

The Cleveland Browns released Phil Taylor today, just three days after he got on the field for the first time in nearly ten months (in a preseason game vs the Bucs). Before you dismiss a player that was not good enough to play for the Browns, allow me to tell you more about him. Taylor was a the 21st pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, but has only played in all 16 games once, his rookie season, and only played in five last season due to a knee injury. Entering his fifth season in the NFL, Taylor is no doubt a veteran presence, and at 6'3/334 fits the type of defensive tackle preferred by Dave...

NFL Roster Cuts 2015: Can the Giants find upgrades on the waiver wire?

With a flood of players up for grabs, can the Giants find a roster upgrade among the recently released players? The deadline for the first NFL-wide roster cutdowns has come and gone, and now every NFL roster is at 75 -- or fewer -- players. Whenever a New York Giants coach or front office executive, usually Tom Coughlin and Jerry Reese, are asked whether they are considering a free agent as a possible upgrade to the roster, they answer with some variation of "We are always looking at everything to improve the team." When asked after practice about competition at certain positions on the...

Is There A Blueprint Emerging For The Cowboys' Running Back By Committee Approach?

Dallas is expected to distribute the carries much more in 2015. Have they tipped their hand to how they want to do this? There is an NFL acronym that is being thrown around when talking about the Dallas Cowboys this season: RRBC. It stands, of course, for running back by committee, and refers to the expectation that the carries are going to be much more evenly distributed than they were in 2014, when the the Cowboys rode the career season of DeMarco Murray into the playoffs. The primary workload is expected to be shared by Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden, with Lance Dunbar used as a...

13 days until 49ers kickoff: Who wore it best? Who wears it now?

The San Francisco 49ers season starts in 13 days. We take a look at jersey No. 13, worn by some notable names in franchise QB history. The San Francisco 49ers kick off the 2015 NFL regular season on Monday Night Football, on September 14. That game. means San Francisco is now a mere 13 days away from kicking off its 2015 regular season. In the spirit of that approaching date, I thought I would steal this idea from our Oakland Raiders site. Who wore it best: P Tom Wittum (1973-1977) I have to admit, No. 13 is an odd one in the history of the San Francisco 49ers. I decided to go with a...

Tim Tebow has very good chance to make Eagles roster, per report

You shouldn't be surprised. One of the biggest things to watch in this week's Eagles vs. Jets game is the battle of Philadelphia's third string quarterbacks: Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow.

Here's the latest from NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport: One note I mentioned while discussing looming roster cuts: It seems Tim Tebow has a very good chance to make the #Eagles. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 2, 2015 Rapoport also noted that the Eagles have "tried to trade [Barkley] a lot." The fact that Tebow has a realistic chance...

Eagles Rumors: Philadelphia interested in Robert Griffin III if Washington Redskins cut him

Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report reports the Eagles are one of three teams who could be interested in Griffin if Washington releases him.

49ers cuts not claimed off waivers, team claims nobody

The San Francisco 49ers cut ten players on Monday. None were claimed on waivers, so they remain on the radar for the practice squad later this week. The San Francisco 49ers made ten roster cuts on Monday, and according to Matt Maiocco, none of the players were claimed off waivers. Maiocco also reported the team did not place any claims. The 49ers likely had a variety of reasons for releasing different players. On Tuesday, Jim Tomsula spoke specifically about Lawrence Okoye. He made an interesting case for the value of releasing Okoye on Monday instead of with final cuts. He talked about...

Falcons Uniform History: High Hopes But Very Poor Results

Bad and ugly mingle at #93. As we wind down our uniform history series, we get to a number that was really, really forgettable. As my title stated, , we now take a look at two players who were supposed to be a determining factor for the Atlanta Falcons defensive line. Both would flop and leave fans with many terrible memories of the two players, unfortunately. Let's review the two most memorable players to wear the jersey number #93. Aundray Bruce: (1988-1991) Where do we begin? Bruce came out of Auburn with the weight of expectations heavy across his shoulders after taking the nation by...

Tom Cable, Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson press conference notes

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, offensive line coach Tom Cable, and quarterback Russell Wilson spoke to reporters after Seattle's practice on Tuesday. Here are a few quick notes I jotted down from both pressers. Originally published at Reddit. Tom Cable: The O-line took from Week 2 to Week 3 with great improvement, a bunch of run space, protection, really good again. Gave up one cheap one (didn't need to give up that one, just really dropped hand) but really clean and good run space. We think the starting five are the guys we have seen, need to get a feel for health and depth, but if...

Falcons near bottom of the league in young talent

ESPN ranked teams with the best young talent, and the Falcons did not do well. We like to ensure you are up to date on rankings that are both countless and pointless. Enter ESPN's list of the best NFL teams with talent under 25, following the Dolphins game and right before the first round of cuts. Why 25? Why not? If you need an arbitrary line to draw, 25 sure rolls off of the tongue well.
