2012 NFL Offseason: Each Team's Biggest Priority Ahead of Next Year

Whether it be Steve Smith blindsiding Tom Coughlin to better his chances of winning a Super Bowl ring—good decision Steve!!!—or Jeff Fisher suddenly departing into the wilderness of unemployment, there is never a shortage of story lines during the NFL offseason.

Despite the fact that the regular season is relatively short, with only 16 regular season games currently each year, the NFL remains very active on fans' minds throughout the whole calender year.

With new coaches and high draft picks bringing optimism to the bottom feeders, and free agency or retirements creating holes in champions, the offseason is a fascinating time for fans of all teams.

This time last year, Carolina Panthers fans were anxiously anticipating the arrival of Cam Newton and trying to figure out if Newton was going to be the biggest mistake in franchise history or their saviour. It may be difficult to realize after his rookie year, but very few people actually believed in Newton at this time last year.

Such is the drama of the NFL offseason. Such is the riddle faced by the Indianapolis Colts this year. 

It is not only the team with the worst record in the league who have major issues to fix this offseason however. From the Colts, Rams and Vikings to the Patriots and Giants, every NFL team has work to do over the coming months.

As such I've compiled a list of each team's biggest priority to deal with between now and training camp next year.

*While I understand it is the offseason and there is a certain level of expectations on us in the media, I promise you there will be absolutely no mention of Brett Favre in this article...well, except for that one!
