NFL free agency and the draft increase the anticipation. Of course, not all 32 NFL teams are created equal, but every franchise has an opportunity with a clean slate
Derrick Brown was the seventh overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, and the 25-year-old defensive tackle has shown some impressive skills and strength in the trenches in his first three seasons in the league.
The Carolina Panthers might be longshots to win the Super Bowl in NFL spreads, but the Panthers are switching to a 3-4 defense, and Brown is working hard to take his game
Despite enduring some hard times in recent seasons, the Panthers have been buoyed by the performance of Brown, who has improved since his rookie year.
It's a new era for the Panthers with an overhauled staff, and if Brown can put more pressure on quarterbacks, Carolina's defense could keep the team in the hunt for a playoff spot.
Davante Adams is one of the best wide receivers in the league. But his first season with the Las Vegas Raiders in 2022 did not go as planned after being traded by the Green Bay Packers
Adams still caught 100 passes for 1,516 yards and 14 touchdowns. The six-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro is looking to put up even bigger numbers in 2023.
