2017 Free Agency Cost-Benefit Analysis - Bryan Knowles
Russell Okung is a major injury question mark. While he played all 16 games last year, he missed 13 in the three seasons prior. That makes a contract with $25 million guaranteed quite the gamble for the Los Angeles Chargers; Okung is now the second-highest paid offensive lineman in football, behind Trent Williams, and that's a bit of a gamble. Similarly, the metric doesn't like that Kevin Zeitler is now the highest-paid guard; it's hard to be a value when you make more money than anyone else at your position.

Most-improved defensive players in 2016 - John Gatta
Despite playing only six games last season before suffering a concussion, Flowers’ level of play in coverage, rushing the passer, and run defending saw a large uptick from 2015 to 2016. In the span of games Flowers did play (Weeks 1-3, 8-10), only six CBs (of 115 qualified) had a higher overall grade. The most interesting statistic from his 2016 season: he rushed the passer six times and generated five pressures. Despite players pass rushing at three times the rate or more, just seven CBs generated more total pressures than Flowers over the course of the entire season.

Who will the Las Vegas Raiders play in 2020? - Paul Gutierrez
Again, if the rotation remains the same, the Raiders will play host in Las Vegas to the New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers and either the AFC South or AFC North team that finishes in the same spot in the standings the previous season.

Mailbag: Who Emerges as Bolts' Third Down Back? - Ricky Henne
In addition, Oliver and newly signed Kenjon Barner have proven deft as receiving options out of the backfield.  This year’s draft is also considered deep at the position, so there is a chance the Bolts go that route as well.  Nonetheless, my eyes are on Gordon to continue to develop as a threat in passing situations and believe he will emerge as a top option.
