Charles Woodson Must Lead The Oakland Defense To New Heights In 2014

Even though he will be 38 in October and well past his prime, safety Charles Woodson has the ability to lead the Oakland Raiders defense this season to a level the team hasn’t seen in awhile.

Jeremy Maclin Must Embrace Becoming The No. 1 Receiver For The Eagles

Jeremy Maclin is not going to have to be Jerry Rice or Terrell Owens. He merely needs to be a receiver for Nick Foles, while the tight ends help chip in the rest of the production in the passing game.

Greg Olsen Gives The Carolina Panthers A Proven Receiving Threat

The Carolina Panthers cut the face of the franchise, Steve Smith, and let the only other three wide receivers on the roster that caught a pass last season leave as free agents.
