That's an under statement based on what we have already seen in over a months of NFL off season activity. We have seen some big time names switch cities to state their claims on their new teams. We have seen one of the most active free agencies in NFL history. It's as if teams are making up for what they missed out on last year. With the draft a few weeks away, I expect to see even more action. There are still a few top rated players that could be moved to new teams for draft picks. At this point, all we can do is sit back and watch the flurry continue.
On top of the crazy free agency signings, the NFL mixed in the Bounty scandal leaving the Saints organization in a bit of disarray. Do I think this will affect the Saints this year? To a certain extant but I feel they will still be playoff contenders. Even though I agree that the Bounty's put on players was wrong and should be punished, I don't think it makes the Saints a bad or feared franchise. In competition you are always looking for a way to hype your players/teammates up but that can only go so far. What does this do to the NFL? Its adds to the off season drama and based on the punishments this will be the last we hear of any bounty's on players. At least that's what the NFL is hoping for.
In closing, the off season is a great time for teams and fans to forget about last season and get excited about the 2012 season. Based on several of the moves (player acquisitions) that I have seen, I feel as the teams are starting to even out. Rookies are catering their play and skill levels to fit in this ever growing and changing league. In return NFL GM's are looking at these future NFL players style of play closer and can pin point the skill positions they need to improve on from last year. Don't get me wrong, there will still be some weak teams out there in 2012 but for the rest of the league, I don't see a clear cut favorite at this point.
That wraps it for now, I hope you enjoy the draft and thanks for taking a minute to read our blog.
