This article isn't explaining too much that we didn't already know, but it's great to see Greg plying his trade over at Shutdown Corner. How much of Cam Newton's "slump" this past year was him, and how much was play calling?

A big day for Kansas City: They franchised left tackle Branden Albert and re-signed both prodigal son/wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and punter Dustin Colquitt. Bowe was 56th in DVOA among wide receivers this year, but it's just another in a long line of years where Bowe has advanced stats that look unimpressive compared to other No. 1 receivers but far surpass the rest of his Kansas City teammates. Colquitt led the NFL in our gross punting value metric this season. Albert may be moving over to right tackle if the Chiefs, as many expect, take Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel with the first overall pick.

If you want to know what happened at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference this year, our own Bill Connelly and SB Nation's Andrew Sharp kept a pretty good live blog going at the SB Nation site. Video of the panels should be online in a couple of weeks, and we'll make sure to link both the Football Analytics panel and the Monday Morning Quarterback Coaching Decisions panel here at that point.

As first reported by Jay Glazer, Joe Flacco has reportedly reached agreement with the Baltimore Ravens on a contract extension. A source tells Adam Schefter the contract is for 6 years, $120.6 million dollars. Flacco was set to become a free agent when the new league year begins on March 12 unless the Ravens re-signed him or hit him with the franchise tag (the deadline for which is Monday).

Is the NFL sleeping on Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib or is he Russ Lande's ranking of him as his top player on his draft board crazy talk? Not as crazy as you might think.

In light of the Alex Smith deal, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Kansas City Chiefs has an eye on E.J. Manuel as a project to develop behind Alex Smith ala Colin Kaepernick.

Lane Johnson and D.J. Fluker were selected high in the draft, but both have troubling flaws in pass protection according to Word of Muth.
