Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks could be coming to a crossroads for the franchise in the very near future. After a 3-8 start to the season, their hopes of coming back and getting into the playoffs are practically gone. Now, they will have to focus on potential changes that they need to make to either retool or rebuild their roster.
Russell Wilson stopped just barely short of asking the Seattle Seahawks for a trade last offseason. Wilson was unhappy with the state of the team at the time, but the Seahawks made some offseason acquisitions and seemed to smooth things over with their franchise quarterback. Given how things have gone this year, it is fair to wonder if the trade talk will come up again this winter.
The payoff for the Giants’ trade in last year’s draft is nearing. For the first time since 2006, the Giants traded back in the first round, moving from No. 11 to No. 20 while adding a 2021 fifth-round pick and 2022 first- and fourth-round picks from the Bears.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are floundering. After a 5-3 start, they are 0-2-1 in their last three games and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger looks like a shell of his former self. The Steelers are now 5-5-1 and sit in last place in the AFC North. So what can fix this team? Receiver Chase Claypool has the answer: music.
Last year, the Buccaneers went on the road for every playoff game and ran the table, allowing them to become the first team ever to play in a Super Bowl in their home stadium.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will be the gem of the 2022 NFL free-agent class.
Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore has cleared up the legal matter that was hanging over his head. Lattimore, who was arrested in March and charged with possessing a loaded handgun that was believed to be stolen (a fourth-degree felony), recently pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of failing to promptly inform officers that he was carrying a concealed handgun, as Mike Triplett of ESPN.com writes. The felony count was dropped as part of the plea deal.

After trading away outside linebacker Von Miller for two high draft picks and giving contract extensions to wide receivers Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick, the Denver Broncos appear to be gearing up to add a high-profile quarterback to the mix in 2022.
Von Miller is by far one of the NFL's most well-known stars slated to hit free agency in 2022.
Starting their year 5-2, the New Orleans Saints appeared primed to make a playoff run before Jameis Winston went down for the season with a torn ACL. Four losses later and the Saints now look more primed for a high draft pick than a spot in the postseason.
Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott appeared to be just as confused as fans were about his lack of touches on Thanksgiving. The Cowboys had nearly an even split in the backfield against the Raiders with Tony Pollard’s ten carries combined with Elliott’s nine rushes.
When you fire the offensive coordinator 11 weeks into the season, it usually means the season is lost.
The Detroit Lions found another way to lose against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving Day, and while the coaching staff hasn’t been a direct reason for a lot of the team’s failures in 2021, that was not the case this time around.
The Bears didn’t care how they won. It won’t matter to them in the moment that the offense mustered 16 points against the last-place and winless Lions and that the game wasn’t pretty by any stretch.
Keeping the Lions on Thanksgiving might not be best for anyone's appetite.
The Cleveland Browns are on the precipice of another lost season. They're 6-5, in last place in the AFC North. Baker Mayfield is hurt and clearly struggling. The team will travel to Baltimore on Sunday to face off against the Baltimore Ravens who will presumably welcome back Lamar Jackson after the former MVP missed last week with a non-COVID illness.
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen "is getting the care he needs" after leaving his home following an incident Wednesday, the team announced.
