Five Worst NFL Fan Bases - Fansided
We try to avoid linking to slideshows whenever we can, but we make an exception here. Just read the Texans and Redskins writeups and you'll see why.

Jason Garrett, Rex Ryan among six coaches on hot seat in 2013 -
Elliot Harrison writes that "Frankly, I'm not too keen on speculating about who will get fired," and then does just that. Harrison identifies six coaches in tenuous situations, among them Jason Garrett.

Morris Claiborne is one comfortable Cowboy -
Entering his second season in the National Football League, Morris Claiborne is feeling comfortable, and his second offseason as a pro proceeding smoothly.

"I think he’s much further a long than when he showed up here last year," Garrett said last month after the Cowboys ended their OTAs. "He’s a good football player, very talented. Like with all rookies, there’s a lot to learn when you get here. I think he’s done a good job learning from the experiences he had as a player last year."

Fantasy Football - 2013 Draft Prep: Scouting the rookie RBs -
Dave Richard examines who might be this year's Trent Richardson, Doug Martin and Alfred Morris - rookie rushers with a major fantasy impact in their first NFL season. The rundown includes the Cowboys' Joseph Randle:

"If the Cowboys were looking for a passing downs candidate at running back, they did a great job by taking Randle. Armed with quick feet, particularly for a tall running back, Randle caught 108 passes over three college seasons and averaged 8.5 yards per grab. Of course, his rushing skills were more impressive as he put up over 3,000 yards over three seasons and never had worse than 5.2 yards per carry in a single year."

"If he's a hit in camp he'll be a name to remember on Draft Day this summer, though his future is obviously tied to Murray's status."
