If LeGarrette Blount doesn¡¯t re-sign with the team and Lacy¡¯s price drops, the Patriots could turn to the former Packer to be their new bruising tailback. Head coach Bill Belichick likes backs who can catch the ball ¡ª James White and Dion Lewis immediately come to mind ¡ª and Lacy has always been an underrated receiver. New England has fewer than $3 million locked up in running back salaries next fall, but may prefer to stick with Blount or roll the dice in the draft instead.

Carolina is expected to release longtime veteran Jonathan Stewart and his $8.25 million cap hit this spring, leaving room to add an impact runner to the roster. The Panthers probably aren¡¯t ready to hand the reins over to Fozzy Whittaker and Cameron Artis-Payne just yet, so expect them to be active in free agency and the draft in hopes of putting a forgettable 2016 in the rear view.
Mens Starling Marte Jersey I lamented during the preseason that this approach was frustrating to watch because the Raiders, like most teams, play so much nickel defense that Mack wasn’t on the field much for first or second downs. Then he would come in on third down as a pass rusher with Tuck moved inside to defensive tackle and Woodley at which ever defensive end spot was opposite of where Mack lined up. Mack didn’t appear to be comfortable as a pass rusher because he was being shuffled in and out of the game every few plays.
On the other hand, with Mack at right defensive end, they were wasting Woodley on the bench which didn’t make much sense either.
Last Sunday against the Patriots, the Raiders fixed that problem by lining up in a 3-4 on early downs for much of the game. This allowed Woodley and Mack to play outside linebacker, something they are both very comfortable with.
