Latest News

Recent News's Tim Twentyman thinks Tahir Whitehead could surpass 100 tackles this season.
The strong favorite for the starting middle linebacker job following the departure of Stephen Tulloch, Whitehead is in a great position to rack up counting stats. A three-down linebacker, he notched 91 tackles in 2014 while filling in for an injured Tulloch for 13 games. He is a solid sleeper in IDP formats. Jun 24 - 9:26 AM
