2022 Offensive Outlook: “O’Sullivan returns for his 3rd season as the signal-caller, so expectations are high. The Key will be finding depth on a roster that only holds 37 currently. It’s a long grind till November so we need to be able to run the ball between the tackles this season to take the load off of O’Sullivan.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “Butler and Hackett form a formidable one-two punch up front. Depth again will be key to keeping them fresh. Ceresier and Kohlbrenner return in the secondary with a lot of experience. Linebackers are still up in the air.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “We will need to replace the kicker, punter, and long snapper this season. Carl will not be an easy replacement after handling the kicking chores for the last three seasons.”
