It's Week 9, is it too early to look ahead to the NFL off-season?
The precedent set by some of the teams who are already looking ahead to the draft says no while the calender says yes. It truly is in the eye of the beholder.
But to me the only thing that comes close to the NFL is the NFL's off-season. Between combines, the draft and pro days at universities across the country, you have plenty of things to keep you occupied in between that long void from the time the Vince Lombardi trophy is presented and when the Hall of Fame game is played.
There's especially high drama in trades and free agency, although the NFL is unlike other sports in the sense that the focus is more on who teams are getting rid of than who teams are signing.
What players could teams be interested in jettisoning this off-season? Why would these teams decide to cut these players loose?
