OK, this seems to be two veteran defensive lineman signings that don't quite make sense. Well, one of them makes a little bit of sense, Shaun Rogers signing in New Orleans. The Saints certainly could use the help stopping the run. However, I don't know how comfortable Gregg Williams will be with Rogers', shall we say, "more chill" approach to the concept of practice. Marcus Stroud to New England really doesn't seem to make sense, as he struggled early last season when the Bills tried to fit him into the defensive end spot in a 3-4. I doubt he would start: Ty Warren is coming back from injury, Gerard Warren played reasonably well last year, and there's a good chance the Pats could draft a 3-4 defensive end like J.J. Watt.

Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
