Behind the measurements: Height vs. arm length

By National Football Post 3 hours, 49 minutes ago

NFL scouting combine, draft prospects strip down to their underwear and parade in front of scouts and executives in an event known as the weigh-in.

The Butchers’ Toll
Part 2

The Saints’ went all out in FA and the draft for defense. Yes we did add another group of aging vets to one year contracts in FA. Well that is our standard mode of operation.
