- New Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak expects tight end Dennis Pitta to be a big part of the offense in 2014. Any hope you had of getting Pitta on the cheap is now probably gone.
- Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett had 8.5 sacks this season despite playing in a rotational basis and just 711 snaps. He’s playing on a one year deal and has earned the chance to test free agency again. Unless the market dries up like last year, an unlikely scenario now that Bennett has a good track record, chances are Bennett gets a bigger opportunity somewhere else. He’ll make an intriguing DL1/2 pick in 2014 dynasty leagues.
- Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley heads into the off-season as the probable backup to Nick Foles. It’s some good news for folks that drafted Barkley with hopes in dynasty rookie drafts last year.
- Saints running back Pierre Thomas is the most likely running back to be cut in New Orleans this off-season. It’s good and bad for Thomas since he could get the opportunity for more touches but also will miss being in one of the more explosive offenses in the league. Expect impressive second-year back Khiry Robinson to get more carries.
