PS: Is anyone else following the off-season? Not seeing much here.

I am. Here are a few ... lights:
- Doug Baldwin and Kam Chancellor were released by Seattle, and both are expected to retire for injury reasons. They've added D-line depth (Ziggy Ansah, Al Woods). Here's a little highlight reel on Kam: http://www.espn.com/blog/seattle-seahawks/post/_/id/31024/th...
- Patrick Peterson got suspended today for the first 6 games of the 2019 regular season(PEDs). http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/26761850/sources-cardinal... I found it funny that someone said, "they can't win without Peterson." They can't win with him, either.
- Tampa hired Bruce Arians as their new coach. That's a pretty big thing, even if he's a Class I a-hole.
- Foles to Jacksonville is kind of a big deal, but Jacksonville very much isn't, so nevermind.
- Teams on the rise: Jets (LeVeon Bell, CJ Mosley), Raiders (buncha draft picks), and Browns (OBJ). It'll be exciting to see whether the Jets can rise above Miami for the right to say they're sort of technically almost as good as New England. KC also made some big moves, though I think they way overpaid for Frank Clark and Tyrann Mathieu. Then again, a SB win 9 months from now, striking while the iron is hot for Reid and Mahomes, could stop any such questions.
- https://www.xfl.com/ (heads up LA, St. Louis, Seattle, Houston, Dallas, NYC, Tampa, and DC)
- It's all about Trevor vs. Tua in college football, apparently. I'm just hoping UW can repeat in the Pac-12 (and that the conference doesn't suck wind so hard again), which would mean that Jacob Eason hasn't forgotten how to be a quarterback, and has someone to throw to. The Husky D is pret-ty deep, so that's not a concern. My prediction, though, is that they fall off a bit and someone from the south half finally wins.
