The original content and analysis produced by the PFR staff during the past week:
- Ahead of last Tuesday’s trade deadline, Zach Links ran down all the potential candidates to be moved, a list that included Joe Thomas, Joe Staley, Torrey Smith, Brandon Marshall, Sheldon Richardson, and Alshon Jeffery. Ultimately, the biggest deal went down the day before the deadline, as the Browns picked up linebacker Jamie Collins from the Patriots. But Richardson, specifically, drew interest before 3pm CT Tuesday, with the Cowboys (for one) making an offer.
- During last week’s Thursday night contest between the Falcons and the Buccaneers, Connor Byrne asked PFR readers to vote on which club who emerge with the NFC South crown. After taking down Tampa, Atlanta sits atop the division with a 6-3 record, while Tampa fell to 3-5. The Saints, meanwhile, are 3-4 heading into today’s game against the 49ers, while the Panthers are still at the bottom of the division with a 2-5 record. Nearly 80% of respondents think the Falcons will take the division title.
