We simulated the season moving Arizona around to every division to see what happened. The result? Their Super Bowl odds would go up 60 percent in the AFC South. It's also good these days to live in the AFC North and NFC East. The NFC West, not so much.

Any team can win the Super Bowl in any given year. What would it look like for the league's worst team to somehow win it?

NFL.com's Ian Rappaport is reporting that arbitrator Stephen Burbank has ruled in favor of the New Orleans Saints: Jimmy Graham will be paid the franchise tender at the tight end position, not wide receiver.

Sigh. Honestly, what is going on with linebackers and injuries this offseason? This is a huge blow to the Bills' defense, which was much better than most people realized last season. We know Nigel Bradham is nowhere near as good as Alonso, and it's hard to imagine that third-round rookie Preston Brown will be -- although hey, Alonso was a somewhat unknown second-rounder last year at this time. You never know.

Doug Farrar, Cian Fahey, and I had a bit of an e-mail round robin about Flowers about a month ago, before Kansas City cut him. Flowers had phenomenal charting stats in 2012 -- top ten in both Adjusted Success Rate and Adjusted Yards per Pass -- and then horrific charting stats in 2013. Looking closer with two film guys, though, it looked like less of a case of getting old and more a case of player and scheme really not matching. The Chiefs had always played Flowers on one side, period. Suddenly in 2013 they were moving him all over, sometimes into the slot.
