  1. WRs Stevie, Brandon on 49ers' bubble?

    Tom Carpenter

    The San Francisco 49ers have plenty of veteran depth in their WR corps but little in the way of sure-fire playmakers. Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin top the depth chart, but Crabtree will have to stay healthy and Boldin is aging. And if offseason...

  4. Manuel key to Watkins' success?

    Tom Carpenter

    The massive potential seen in Sammy Watkins is why the Buffalo Bills traded up five spots to take the wide receiver with the No. 4 overall pick in this year's draft. The long-term upside is obvious, but what can we expect from him as a rook? Well,...

  6. Will Joel Bitonio start at LG?

    Tom Carpenter

    Since the Cleveland Browns eschewed a glaringly obvious need at wide receiver to select offensive lineman Joel Bitonio with the 35th pick of this year's draft, it's no surprise that he slid right in as their starting left guard during OTAs. He wil...

  9. Week 9 for Navorro Bowman's return?

    Tom Carpenter

    Tom Carpenter

  11. Is interference replay review inevitable?

    Tom Carpenter

  12. Is Julius' long-term future in DEN?

  13. Will Smith start over Vick?

    Tom Carpenter

    In his annual ranking of NFL quarterbacks, ESPN's Ron Jaworski pegged New York Jets QB Geno Smith 30th as we head into training camp. Because he ranks only one quarterback from each NFL team, the presumption, then, is that he expects Smith to start o...

    Tom Carpenter

    In 2012, the Cincinnati Bengals drafted Mohamed Sanu in the third round and Marvin Jones in the fifth. In 2013, both caught about the same number of passes (Jones had 51, Sanu had 47), but Jones outpaced Sanu in yards per catch (14.0 vs 9.7) and touc...
