    Pat Yasinskas

    When the Carolina Panthers signed Ron Edwards coming out of the lockout in 2011, the thinking was he'd give the team the run-stuffing defensive tackle it had lacked since Kris Jenkins left after the 2007 season. It never came even close to working...

  4. Revisionist history on Ray Edwards

    Pat Yasinskas

    Pat Yasinskas

    This easily has been the most interesting offseason in the NFC South since we started the ESPN Blog Network in 2008. There has been so much going on that last year's lockout (and the boredom that came with it) seems like it was about 10 years ago....

  15. Packers have put the Falcons in a rut

    Pat Yasinskas
