The 2010 season promises to be a very interesting battle for supremacy in the NFC West. Several new faces have come into the division.
This report will focus on the trades and incoming free agents that will play a key role in the race for the NFC West title. Draft picks are not a part of this analysis, as they have been discussed at length in other reports.
Who are the top 10 new additions that will have the biggest impact in the NFC West this season?
The Arizona Cardinals have won the division for the past two years, including a Super Bowl appearance in the 2008 season. The Cardinals have lost several key players from last year's 10-6 team. Have they added enough to maintain their stronghold atop the division?
Which division foes have improved the most this off-season?
The San Francisco 49ers are poised to make a playoff run in 2010. This is Mike Singletary's second full season at the helm, and he will try to improve on last year's 8-8 record.
The Seattle Seahawks made a number of off-season moves, following a disappointing 5-11 season. The Seahawks were hit hard by the injury bug last year, and are hoping the moves they made this off-season will help them turn things around.
The St. Louis Rams are in a rebuilding mode, following an NFL worst 1-15 record. In addition to No. 1 draft pick Sam Bradford, the Rams made several off-season pickups. These new additions should improve the Rams, but they have a long way to go before they will be in a position to challenge for the division.
