Burfict, 23, proved to be an outstanding undrafted gem from the 2012 NFL Draft out of Arizona State, appearing in all 32 games (30 starts) with 298 tackles with four sacks, a forced fumble and interception.

The 6-foot-1, 248-pound sideline-to-sideline linebacker actually led the league with a whopping 171 tackles in 2013 and was set to make just $570,000 in the final year of his rookie contract as an impending 2015 restricted free agent before today.

Burfict does more than just tear up the stats sheet though. He’s also renown as a borderline elite run defender and coverage linebacker in the weakside spot of a Bengals defense that finished fifth against the pass, fifth against the run, tied for fifth in points allowed and finished third in total yards per game last season.

Stay tuned to GridironGrit.com for the latest news and analysis on the Bengals and the rest of the NFL.

Geno Smith Compares Himself To Aaron Rodgers http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/geno-smith-compares-himself-to-aaron-rodgers/ http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/geno-smith-compares-himself-to-aaron-rodgers/#comments Wed, 20 Aug 2014 20:46:15 +0000 http://gridirongrit.com/?p=25340

Geno Smith is coming off a disappointing rookie campaign with the New York Jets, completing just 55.8 percent of his passes for 3,046 yards with 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions. But after rebooting in the offseason, he’s expecting to burst onto the scene with a breakout campaign. In fact, last year’s No. 39 overall pick is comparing himself to Aaron Rodgers.

I liken myself to him,” Smith said, via ESPN New York. “He throws a great ball and he’s very accurate in the pocket, but he’s also skilled enough to run around. He’s got enough speed to score when it’s there. I think I’m pretty fast — I think I can run pretty good — but I also want to be one of those guys that can play from the pocket.”

While the team has inevitably stopped short of announcing its Week 1 starter, ESPN New York has just confirmed that Smith will be Gang Green’s starting quarterback to open the 2014 season.

“When the coaches say, ‘First-group offense,’ we know who’s walking in the huddle,” wide receiver David Nelson said on Tuesday. “It’s not something that needs to be said. [Geno's] the guy and we’re moving forward.”

Rich Cimini of ESPN New York says there are two reasons why the Jets haven’t named their starter — GM John Idzik doesn’t want to contradict his competition mantra and he seems to have a “superstitious” outlook on a possible injury.

But barring injury or a catastrophic meltdown, Smith will line up under center for the Jets’ season opener at MetLife Stadium against the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 7.

Smith completed just 55.8 percent of his passes for 3,046 yards with 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2013, but he expects to be a Top 5 quarterback within a year or two. He’s performed well throughout the team’s first two preseason games and may be able to make a big leap if he can improve on his decision-making in 2014.

Stay tuned to GridironGrit.com for the latest news and analysis on the Jets and the rest of the NFL.

Detroit Lions: Sleeper Team To Watch in 2014? http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/detroit-lions-sleeper-team-to-watch-in-2014/ http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/detroit-lions-sleeper-team-to-watch-in-2014/#comments Wed, 20 Aug 2014 17:43:01 +0000 http://gridirongrit.com/?p=25328

The offseason presents a ray of sunshine across the NFL landscape. Each team is presented with a clean slate and a golden opportunity to fill various holes through the draft and free agency.

It’s no wonder that nearly every year about half of the teams that made the trip to the postseason the previous year fall short of returning to the NFL’s tournament.

The Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans came into 2013 widely regarded as legitimate Super Bowl contenders and finished the season with just six winscombined. The Minnesota Vikings, Washington Redskins and Super Bowl XLVII champion Baltimore Ravens also managed just 16 combined wins after each making the playoffs with a 10-6 record in 2012.

Meanwhile, San Diego (improved from 7-9 to 9-7 in 2013), New Orleans (7-9 to 11-5), Carolina (7-9 to 12-4), Philadelphia (4-12 to 10-6) and Kansas City (2-14 to 11-5) took their place as the five new teams to punch their tickets to the playoffs last season. So which non-playoff teams from 2013 will turn things around this season?

The Detroit Lions are among our 10 NFL sleeper teams poised for a potential playoff run in 2014.

Like Washington, Detroit’s secondary is still a concern after the club neglected to address the back end of its defense until the fourth round of May’s draft. But they may have enough dynamic pieces on both sides of the ball and the “championship DNA” to overcome their Achilles’ heel and challenge Chicago and Green Bay for the NFC North crown.

With Reggie Bush, Joique Bell, Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Ryan Broyles, Eric Ebron, Brandon Pettigrew and Scott Fauria at his disposal in new OC Joe Lombardi’s up-tempo offense, sixth-year quarterback Matthew Stafford should be in for a monstrous 2014 campaign. He’s thrown for 14,655 yards with a 90:52 TD-to-INT ratio over the last three seasons, and that was without the help of a No. 2 receiver and a tight end who will be utilized like Jimmy Graham.

The Lions should also wreak more havoc on the defensive side of the ball due to a rapidly improving front seven that features Ndamukong Suh, Ezekiel Ansah, Kyle Van Noy, Jason Jones, Devin Taylor, DeAndre Levy and Stephen Tulloch.

How well do you think the Lions will do in the upcoming season? Sound off in the comments!

Miami Dolphins: Sleeper Team To Watch in 2014? http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/miami-dolphins-sleeper-team-to-watch-in-2014-2/ http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/miami-dolphins-sleeper-team-to-watch-in-2014-2/#comments Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:36:02 +0000 http://gridirongrit.com/?p=25324

Losing star center Mike Pouncey (hip tear) for the start of the season certainly stings, but the difference between last season’s offensive line and this year’s unit is night and day.

After parting ways with Richie Incognito, Jonathan Martin and John Jerry, Miami acquired OT Branden Albert and OG Shelley Smith off the open market and picked up first round OT Ja’Wuan James and third round OL Billy Turner through the draft.

Those moves will work wonders for Ryan Tannehill, who was sacked more times last season (58) than any quarterback since 2006 (Jon Kitna). The additions of veteran RB Knowshon Moreno, rookie WR Jarvis Landry and new creative OC Bill Lazor will also help the former 2012 first round pick (No. 8 overall) as he looks to “make a big jump” in 2014.

[RELATED: Will Ryan Tannehill Have Breakout Season For Dolphins in 2014?]

Not much has changed on other side of the ball with the Dolphins defense, which ranked eighth in points allowed (20.9 PPG), 16th against the pass, 24th against the run and 21st in total yards per game. But bringing back cornerback Brent Grimes, defensive tackle Randy Starks and replacing Reshad Jones with Louis Delmas were savvy moves.

Jay Cutler showed “incredible progress” during the offseason, and has looked rock-solid in preseason play. That shouldn’t come as a shock considering he’s operating behind a stable offensive line in a very friendly system under QB whisperer Marc Trestman that also features Matt Forte and arguably the best WR duo in the NFL today. 

The only potential new starter on offense is the team’s breakout candidate (see below).

[RELATED: Who Will Step Up For the Chicago Bears in 2014?]

Things are quite a different on defense, however. Despite losing DT Henry Melton to the Cowboys, DE Julius Peppers to the Packers, DE Corey Wootton to the Vikings and FS Major Wright to the Buccaneers, the Monsters of the Midway look to wreck quite a bit more havoc on defense after finishing 30th in total defense and points allowed and dead last in the league against the run in 2013.

Ex-Vikings DE Jared Allen, former Raiders DE Lamarr Houston and first round rookie CB Kyle Fuller (No. 14 overall) are the three sure-fire new starters in Mel Tucker’s defense. That number will double if second round defensive tackle Ego Ferguson (No. 51 overall) and third round DT Will Sutton (No. 82 overall) and one of the team’s new safeties (Ryan Mundy, M.D. Jennings, Adrian Wilson or rookie Brock Vereen) step into the starting lineup opposite Chris Conte.

Panthers Trade Kenjon Barner To Eagles http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/panthers-trade-kenjon-barner-to-eagles/ http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/panthers-trade-kenjon-barner-to-eagles/#comments Wed, 20 Aug 2014 02:26:05 +0000 http://gridirongrit.com/?p=25318

The Carolina Panthers have traded running back Kenjon Barner to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange of a seventh round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The move reunites Barner with Chip Kelly, who coached him at Oregon.

A former sixth round pick (No. 182 overall), Barner carried the ball just six times across eight games in his rookie campaign in 2013, but the 5-foot-9, 195-pound Oregon product offers plenty of versatility and some much-needed depth at running back for the Eagles. Second-year coach Chip Kelly will also know how to get the most out of him.

Barner joins an an explosive Eagles offense that also features LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, big-time breakout candidate Zach Ertz and Darren Sproles, as well promising second round rookie Jordan Matthews and third round WR Josh Huff, who was the first Oregon player Kelly picked up through the draft since taking over for the Eagles.

What do you think of the trade and Barner’s chances of success in Philly? Sound off in the comments!

Former Carolina Panthers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears and Tennessee Titans linebacker Tim Shaw has announced he has ALS in a new video on the Titans’ official website.

In the clip, Shaw challenges the Titans organization, along with James Franklin and the Penn State football team (his alma mater) to take part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Shaw’s announcement obviously puts another face on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which has led the ALS Association already raising $13.3 million, compared to $1.7 million during the same time period (July 29 to August 17) last year.

A former 2007 fifth round pick (No. 164 overall), Shaw appeared in 80 games (just three starts) and racked up 127 tackles with three forced fumbles in six NFL seasons. Though he rarely lined up as a starter, he was very good on special teams.

Check out a series of interesting videos below related to the teams Shaw played for during his career.

[RELATED: The 10 Best NFL Free Agents Still Available]

Keisel, who turns 36 next month, was widely regarded as one of the best free agents still on the market.

He declined an offer to visit the Arizona Cardinals earlier in the day because he “didn’t want to leave his family“—making it quite clear that he was going to retire if he didn’t return to the Steel City.

The 6-foot-5, 285-pound defensive end has appeared in 144 games (110 starts) and racked up a total of 391 tackles with 29.0 sacks, seven forced fumbles and one INT returned for a 79-yard TD since entering the league as a late seventh round pick (No. 242 overall) with the Steelers out of BYU in the 2002 NFL Draft.

We suspect Keisel will line up as a rotational role along the Steelers’ new-look defense in 2014.

Houston Texans: Sleeper Team To Watch in 2014? http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/houston-texans-sleeper-team-to-watch-in-2014/ http://gridirongrit.com/2014/08/houston-texans-sleeper-team-to-watch-in-2014/#comments Tue, 19 Aug 2014 12:33:07 +0000 http://gridirongrit.com/?p=25288

The offseason presents a ray of sunshine across the NFL landscape. Each team is presented with a clean slate and a golden opportunity to fill various holes through the draft and free agency.

It’s no wonder that nearly every year about half of the teams that made the trip to the postseason the previous year fall short of returning to the NFL’s tournament.

The Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans came into 2013 widely regarded as legitimate Super Bowl contenders and finished the season with just six winscombined. The Minnesota Vikings, Washington Redskins and Super Bowl XLVII champion Baltimore Ravens also managed just 16 combined wins after each making the playoffs with a 10-6 record in 2012.

Meanwhile, San Diego (improved from 7-9 to 9-7 in 2013), New Orleans (7-9 to 11-5), Carolina (7-9 to 12-4), Philadelphia (4-12 to 10-6) and Kansas City (2-14 to 11-5) took their place as the five new teams to punch their tickets to the playoffs last season. So which non-playoff teams from 2013 will turn things around this season?

Despite missing the cut on our list of 10 NFL sleeper teams poised for a potential playoff run, the Oakland Raiders are among the 10 most improved NFL teams for 2014 and could be a sleeper team to watch.

Despite a dreadful performance in their preseason opener, the Texans had a nice bounce-back performance against the Atlanta Falcons and look to have a promising season ahead under first-year head coach Bill O’Brien.

While they won’t be making a run at the Super Bowl with Ryan Fitzpatrick or Case Keenum under center, the team plays in arguably the weakest division and faces one of the league’s easiest schedules.

Houston also plans to use a recipe that still works very well in today’s pass-happy era—run the football with authority behind a pretty strong offensive line and play smashmouth defense. Don’t forget the Jets made back-to-back trips to the AFC Championship with a guy known best for his infamous buttfumble.

The Texans also have one of the league’s best WR duos with Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins and history is also on their side. Each of the last two years, the team that had the No. 1 pick in the draft went on to make the playoffs.

How well do you think the Texans will do in the upcoming season? Sound off in the comments!
