This is the point of the NFL offseason when expectations are the highest.
Teams have completed the first free agency period and the draft, and most teams have had their first mini-camp by now.
Optimism is at its peak, but for every franchise, there is always one guy or group of guys who has just a little more riding on each season. These are the ones who'll be under the microscope of either the media or management—the ones who there is just a little extra pressure on.
The reasons are many:
Some might be looking to rebound after a bad season or performance.
Some might need to justify a questionable decision or two or three...
Others just need to step up to their potential.
This has the makings of a very entertaining football season.
