When all was said and done last season, Allen emerged not only as the Chargers’ top threat, but one of the top wide receiver stories around the NFL.

Sharrif Floyd Looks To Continue Vikings Tradition Of Good Defensive Tackles

The Minnesota Vikings have a long tradition of having very good defensive tackles. They drafted Sharrif Floyd in the first round of the 2013 draft in hopes that he can continue the trend. He learned a lot of from former teammate Kevin Williams and slimmed down in the offseason to reach his full potential. This season should be the beginning of the Floyd era in Minnesota.

Stevie Johnson Returns Home To Round Out 49ers Receiving Core And Silence Critics
