2022 Offensive Outlook: “We need to improve throwing the Football. We were very young at WR and need to make plays there. We will have a new QB but I think We have the right guys in that room. We have a very good O-line and RB Situation.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “We need to be much more physical on Defense, We are looking for a major improvement on this side of the ball. We need to be better against the run and create more take-a-ways to have the type of Defense we expect to have around here.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “We should be very good in the kicking game. It is something we take very seriously. We return a number of guys who have experience on Special Teams and I expect us to be very good in this area.”
