NFL Notebook: Philosophies for all 32 NFL teams in 2014

+

This article is from SB Nation's Seahawks blog "Field Gulls". I like the short statement they offer: "Cross Fingers That Cam Can Mask Flaws And Benjamin Becomes a Jump-Ball Stud." There is more there but I liked it.

NEW SB Nation automated name change procedure

Newton rated 16th best QB by insiders

+

Mike Sando over at ESPN took a poll of 26 'league insiders' and asked them to rate QBs into one of 5 tiers of ability. Cam was 16th or the 1st in the third tier.

Forget rust, Newton will be better than ever

+

The article is ok. I just put it up for this quote:

As Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway recently told me, Newton is on the verge of moving into the upper tier of NFL quarterbacks. Critics no longer are questioning his ability to lead after guiding the Panthers to a 12-4 record last season.

Do penalties equal championships?

1

Over at the Bills SB Nation website, they looked at penalty stats and found that four of the last five champs were among the league's most penalized.

Carolina Panthers adding retired Jordan Gross to radio team

NFL’s Best Running Quarterback? The Answer May Surprise You

3

Lots of stats here that I am not qualified to tell whether they mean much. I found it an interesting read though. And the answer to the question in the title? He likes Andrew Luck like all the good corporate sports folks.

Why these are the NFC’s most overrated players?

1

USA Today's Brent Sobleski thinks the Panther's most overrated player is DWill. His reasoning has to do with cap hit vs production. I'm going with Bell personally. After all RR thinks he'll be an awesome LT. . . which I doubt.

Cam vs Luck for the Madden cover

+

There is also Sherman vs Kaepernick in the other bracket.

'Greatest Show On Turf' to Carolina?

+

Sounds like Proehl wants a lot of proven receivers playing coach and role model at training camp.

How Much College Quarterbacks Are Worth

+

I thought this was an interesting bit of math. It turns out Cam was worth 3.6 wins to the Tigers back in 2010.

Panthers’ G.M. will conduct final day of the draft via Skype

+

Gettleman is in Worcester, Massachusetts, where his son is graduating from Becker College today. So he’ll communicate with the rest of the team’s personnel staff via Skype, and he’ll still make the Panthers’ picks in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh rounds of the NFL draft.

Folks close to Cam expect long term contract before option year.

+

Newton has made no secret that he wants his relationship with the team and the city to be more than a pitstop on his way to something else. Those close to the 2010 Heisman Trophy winner say the fifth-year option, which guarantees Newton $14.67 million in 2015, won't ever come into play because the team will sign him to a long-term deal before that year is activated.

Sidney Rice returns to the Seahawks

Sidney Rice returns to the Seahawks

Rice broke the news himself on Twitter. Per a league source, it’s a one-year deal. We’re told the deal pays more than the veteran minimum, but the specific amount isn’t currently known.

The Quiet Dominance of Steve Smith

+

I know people are probably getting sick of Smitty posts but I like this post for the compilation of links to metrics and other data.

Steve Smith Thanks Panthers Fans with Newspaper Ad

+

What a classy way to go out. Ad at the link. . .

Newton’s ankle had been bothering him for years

+

"The ankle, we’re told, nevertheless has been bothering him for several years, dating back to college. If the season were occurring now, he’d continue to play through it." From an unnamed source so it may or may not be true.

James Jones to Raiders

Raiders giving former Packers WR James Jones a three-year deal.

NFL draft: Deception is standard fare

+

An interesting read on draft day deception techniques.

Saints finagle $3.13 million 2014 cap number for Byrd

+

The Saints combined an $11 million signing bonus with a fully-guaranteed (as of March 21, 2014) 2015 roster bonus of $6 million. Coupled with a fully-guaranteed base salary of $1.3 million for 2014, Byrd gets $18.3 million fully guaranteed at signing.

Free-Agent Frenzy

+

Once Adam Schefter had reported that the Raiders were finalizing a move for Jets tackle Austin Howard early Wednesday morning, the NFL had reached a staggering new high: Its teams had handed out, by my count, more than $1 billion worth of contracts in roughly 72 hours. About $350 million of that is guaranteed.
