The one thing I root for when it comes to the NFL is a great story. And while the prospect of Magic Johnson pulling a rabbit from his hat by luring Peyton Manning to L.A. would generate plenty of interest, there’s another quarterback who’s migration to California would be nearly as compelling.

Bob Firtos never thought it possible back in the days when they rode the bench as freshmen on the Granite City South High basketball team.

But then came "career day" a few years later, in the spring of senior year. His best friend and former basketball bench warmer, Kevin Greene, didn’t even go to the event — much less talk to anyone about a career.

Apparently the Rams do want a quarterback...

In the true spirit of love, we’re going to rank which teams are most in love with their quarterbacks, and thus which quarterbacks have the most job security.

Teams have won a Super Bowl with a bad quarterback. Not many, but it has happened. Take the 2015 Denver Broncos, for instance.

However, that’s not ideal. You need to have someone under center who won’t throw the ball to the other team and can control the offense from a mental standpoint. There are a few teams that aren’t that lucky.

The draft order is determined by record, and using strength of schedule as a tiebreaker (record and strength of schedule are official tiebreakers to determine the draft order).

Los Angeles Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson is likely to be the hidden gem of the 2016 free-agency class. The 26-year-old fourth-year cornerback from the University of Montana has grown leaps and bounds to become a quality starter. But he may be overlooked due to the quantity of quality cornerbacks available this offseason.

The Los Angeles Rams’ wide receiving corp didn’t scare any opponent on any Sunday this past season.

Halley Harding is hardly remembered among the NFL’s most influential figures. But nearly 70 years since the late sportswriter spoke up in the name of equality, the league’s history can’t be written without him.

Every year there is a plethora of talented players available in NFL free agency, and every year there is at least one or two teams that fans around the league hope and pray don’t get them because then it just wouldn’t be fair. What are some of those possible deals that would strike fear across the league? Here are some of the most promising examples.
