Team-by-team 2016 NFL Off-season Outlooks
The NFL’s 2015 season has come to an end, but we all know that the NFL never really stops. Chris Burke and Doug Farrar take a look at the most pressing personnel situation for each team to address this spring and what each team needs to do to contend in 2016.
We’ll be publishing in reverse draft order over the next few weeks (with a break for the NFL combine), so check back for updates.
The Bengals cannot afford any offensive step backs under their new coordinator this off-season if they are going to get that elusive playoff win.
Teddy Bridgewater has spent two years as a game manager. Now it’s up to the front office to find him more playmakers.
The Texans are so good everywhere else that it’s time to stop stalling and find their quarterback of the future.
Even as they remain in Calvin Johnson limbo, the Lions are in need of an upgrade in the trenches on both sides of the ball.
Aside from their franchise pass rusher in Khalil Mack, the Raiders have plenty of work to do on the defensive side of the ball this off-season.
The Giants desperately need a strong draft this off-season. But more importantly, the team needs to rethink how those decisions are made.
The 49ers quarterback situation was nothing short of a disaster last year. New head coach Chip Kelly must determine a plan for the future of the position.
The Ravens might let their best free agent walk and still come out ahead this off-season using the understated strategies they have made a trademark of recent roster-building efforts.
The Jaguars’ painful rebuild needs to start bearing fruit soon. Luckily, they have plenty of resources to pour into their roster this off-season.
The Cowboys’ defense has worked magic in getting the results it has in the past two years. Imagine what Dallas could do with some upgrades on that side of the ball.
