|The rumor mill is churning as the NFL Scouting Combine approaches, and it’s starting to get clearer as to which free agents will re-sign as well as those who will leave and their likely landing spot(s). Pro Football Focus recently debuted its free agency rankings, featuring advanced analysis, PFF grades, wins above replacement (WAR), contract projections, team needs and much more. Using that one-of-a-kind database that includes data used by every single NFL team, they predict where every single free agent in PFF’s top 50 rankings lands this offseason. For openers: Philip Rivers, Indianapolis Colts. Jacoby Brissett produced just a 59.3 PFF grade in 2019 that ranked 29th of 32 quarterbacks a mark that was actually worse than his 62.4 PFF grade in 2017 when he had to step in for an injured Andrew Luck. The short-lived Brissett era that featured a few weeks of MVP talk from other national media outlets is over. There have been rumors about a potential reunion in Indianapolis between Philip Rivers and Frank Reich, who was his quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator in San Diego from 2015-17. For anyone who thinks this is a bad idea, it’s really not. To read the other 49 Free Agent landing projections click here.|

Grinding Out The Profits
Sorry to see Cleveland Cavaliers head coach John Beilein resign after just 54 games at the helm. He’s simply cut from College Basketball cloth, not the NBA. The Cavs haven’t had a coach last more than three full seasons since LeBron James left for the first time in 2010. JB Bickerstaff will be Cleveland’s sixth head coach in seven seasons. Not pretty.
