As far as the Ravens are concerned, they are probably going to need to sign a new every-down running back not only because of Ray Rice’s current physical situation with the injuries, which is why he wasn’t very productive in 2013 even when he was playing, but also because of his current legal situation, with what may have happened between him and his fiance in Atlantic City. So if I’m General Manager Ozzie Newsome, I’m looking at new running backs in the NFL Draft and in free agency as well as signing a possession receiver to complement Torry Smith, and having tight end Dennis Pitta back will be a big help as well.

Not much was expected from the Pittsburgh Steelers going into 2013.  They were expected to finish anywhere between 7-9 and 9-7, and they finished 8-8. This is an aging team with big holes on the offensive line, at running back, and with a beat up quarterback in Ben Rothlisburger, who’s going into his eleventh season having taken all sorts of punishment in his career so far.  So if I’m the Steelers and running personal for them, I’m concentrating on these areas, including signing either a talented young QB or drafting one who could play right now if something were to happen to Big Ben.
