Philip Wheeler and the June 1 Cut

With most of the NFL world congregating in Indianapolis for the NFL combine, the rumors are starting to pick up.  While most of the talk is focused on whispers of which teams are looking to strike in free agency, there are a few more subtle storylines lingering.  One of these was this little nugget from @VicTafur, who covers the Oakland Raiders and NFL for the San Francisco Chronicle.

I haven’t discussed my background yet on the site, but this may explain why I found this rumor more interesting than most others.  I am a native of Miami, Florida and grew … Read the rest

Status Update on the Eight Franchised Players

It was a big week for a few players playing under the Franchise Tag this season and I figured it was a good time to just check-in and see they are doing so far this season.

The Good:

Michael Johnson – Defensive End – Cincinnati Bengals – Tag $11,175,000

The Cincinnati Bengals defense is playing excellent football and at the heart of that success is Michael Johnson.  Johnson tied for 9th in the league last year with 11.5 sacks and although he has only recorded 1.5 sacks this year, there may not be a defensive end playing better football … Read the rest

Buccaneers Release RB Peyton Hillis

The Buccaneers have decided to release RB Peyton Hillis today.  Hillis, who broke out for the Cleveland Browns in 2010, was brought in to be the primary back-up to Doug Martin in the backfield during the offseason.  Hillis had signed a 1-year Veteran Minimum Salary Benefit contract which paid him $715,000 in P5 (base) salary with no guarantees but would only count $555,000 on the cap.  Remember, a Minimum Salary Benefit contract allows a veteran player, in this case 6-year veteran Peyton Hillis, to only count as much on the cap as a 2-year veteran.  After not seeing the field … Read the rest

State of Rebuild – Oakland Raiders

How do you build a winning football team?  Over the next few weeks I am going to look at a handful of teams that are relatively early in their rebuilding process or on the verge of a possible rebuild.  The purpose of this is not to reflect on past regime decisions compared to the current decisions but rather to start the analysis from day one and evaluate personnel decisions along with contract structures and styles to see if certain trends help produce a winning franchise.
