#23-2012 Ryan Fitzpatrick-Buffalo Bills  This is what 3,400 yards passing with 24 touchdowns and 16 interceptions gets you in Buffalo, a ticket to a backup role in Tennessee! Fitzpatrick had three decent seasons in Buffalo but he wasn’t part of the new regime so time will tell who mad out the most from this move.

Retro #23-2012 Chad Pennington-QB New York Jets It’s pretty fitting that Chad shows up on this day, because he was mediocre QB but 2002 like many other players in this countdown was his best season. Over 3,000 yards passing 22 touchdowns and only 6 picks. Pennington never approached these kind of stats again.

Looking Ahead-

ESPN-Jimmy Graham TE New Orleans Saints- With the question marks surrounding Gronkowski, Graham is the #1 tight end going into the season.  Graham has a nose for the ball and the end zone, and in the Saints offense that means a lot of points.

CBS- Dez Bryant-WR Dallas Cowboys It’s kind of weird that the experts seem to fall for Cowboys just like fans do.  Bryant is good but he also has Romo throwing him the ball which means inconsistency and a lot of looks to Jason Whitten.
