After watching Winston Guy and Brandon Browner get suspended last season, as well as Richard Sherman fighting suspension for using Adderall, you’d think Bivens would have been smarter. The initial assumption in the minds of fans was probably that Irvin was taking steroids, but this just doesn’t make sense to the 12th man.

Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Brandon Browner, and now featuring Antoine Winfield. Look out.

He weighs in with some draft predictions, his free draft preview, and explains what he thinks are the teams roster weaknesses.

And yet, despite all of the accolades that Wilson has received this season, he will be doing battle against one of the top quarterbacks in the league, Matt Ryan. Ryan, who completed 422 of 615 (68.6%) of his passes this season for 4,719 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions, had one of the best seasons of his career with the help of Roddy White, Julio Jones, and Tony Gonzalez.
