5 NFL Teams Primed for a Fast Rebuild

For all but eight teams, the 2013-14 NFL season has reached its end.

For many teams, it is time to begin preparations for next year. There are roster moves to ponder, a pool of free agents to evaluate and a bevy of draft-eligible collegiate stars to get to know. With the new league year beginning on March 11, there is little time to waste.

For a handful of NFL franchises, however, there could be a little more at stake over the next few weeks.

We're talking about those teams in need of drastic changes, either along the depth chart or in the front office. You know, the teams about to enter the dreaded "rebuilding mode."

Fortunately, returning a franchise to relevance no longer requires a long, arduous process in today's NFL (think this year's Kansas City Chiefs team or the Indianapolis Colts a season ago). Some teams have at least a few key pieces in place and have the potential to make a quick turnaround.

These are the teams we will examine over the next few pages.

Since expectations and the definition of a "disappointing season" vary from franchise to franchise, we will only include teams that had a losing record in 2013 and that have made or are expected to make a change in the front office or at quarterback (sorry, Atlanta Falcons fans).
