Albert Breer makes the worst Atlanta Falcons mock draft selection my eyes have ever seen

What in the hell happened here? The Atlanta Falcons have had a pretty easy to follow offseason. They have made an effort to keep their own players, and there has not been much turnover. The biggest changes have been along the defensive line. DE/DT Adrian Clayborn left for more money with the New England Patriots. DT Dontari Poe left for more money with the Carolina Panthers. DE/DT Derrick Shelby. DE/DT Courtney Upshaw has not been re-signed. It is pretty clear that they lost a lot along the defensive line. The only other major loss was cutting TE Levine Toilolo. We were not sure what the...

After losing Jimmy Graham to the Green Bay Packers in free agency, the Seattle Seahawks signed Ed Dickson to a three-year contract worth up to $14 million.

To begin his career, Dickson was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. The Oregon product played there for four seasons, then moved to North Carolina to play for the Panthers for four seasons, and now he plays for his third team with the Seahawks. Over the course of his eight...

Bills didn’t learn from Seahawks free agency lesson

In 2014, they finally got a change in ownership, going from the late Ralph Wilson to Terry Pegula.
