We all know what March Madness is all about. But for the NFL, March is a month that is filled with as many rumors as any other time period on the NFL calendar.

You have the whispers of why certain teams are downgrading certain players from the recent NFL Scouting Combines. You have rumors that teams are expressing interest in certain players for the draft, which you realize is a smokescreen to keep other teams guessing as to their true intended targets. There are the rumors of which players will receive the franchise tag and which players are going to be released.

That is the thing about rumors, you can only put so much faith in them. Not only did none of these players have the franchise tag applied to them as was rumored, but their team didn't apply the franchise tag to any of their free agents. Matt Flynn - GB, Mario Williams - HOU, Vincent Jackson - SD, Brandon Lloyd - STL and Sione Pouha - NYJ.

The 11 teams that didn't use their franchise tag designation were the Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Green Bay Packers, Houston Texans, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams.

The Steelers did use a tender offer on Mike Wallace, and we will talk more about that on their team slide.

Rumors are flying around everywhere. What rumors are actually tied to something that will happen and what rumors are tied to something that turns out to be nothing more than noise? As for this presentation, we are going to visit every NFL team and focus on what's the hottest rumor going on with every team right now.
