Every NFL team has gone through a tough time and they have managed to get over it. Let's check out what the franchise had to go through this year and how they fought it.
Rookie linebacker Zaven Collins could have been a fine defender for Arizona Cardinals. But this time, he needed to be more than a sub-package defender. He was selected in the 16th round, but the positional value brought up many problems.
The Cowboys almost swung on to Chidobe Awuzie even though the cornerback signed a three-year deal. He was paid a $21.75 million contract with the Cincinnati Bengals. Well, he has played well and seems to have paid off for what he was selected.
It seems like Green Bay Packers didn't treat Aaron Rodgers well enough. They should have treated him like other teams do with their quarterbacks. They should have given him the freedom to discuss certain moves.
The Kansas City Chiefs picked Melvin Ingram III right before they passed this year's trade deadline. But many people believe he should have been a member of the team much sooner.
The additions of Von Miller and Odell Beckham Jr. gave the organization a season with an all-or-nothing approach. On the other hand, DeSean Jackson has now become a forgotten man in this discussion, as he couldn't deliver enough. He's now joined the Raiders.
In the team, cornerback JC Jackson should be viewed as a top available retention player, as last season he finished second in the league with nine interceptions.
The Bucs passing on Edge Azeez Ojulari for Joe Tryon-Shoyinka. Shoyinka is a rotational piece alongside Shaquil Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul and he'd become a bigger part of the defense. Ojulari is younger, but doesn't more to offer.
