1 offensive and 1 defensive player from any team in the NFL to build your team around.

Who do you select?


I take Matt Ryan and Patrick Willis.


Yes, I am bored.
Joe Montana and Ronnie Lott
Good call on Matt Ryan. As much as I love Patrick Willis, I gotta get to the QB, I'll take DeMarcus Ware. Hate me if you must...
Alex Smith and Kwame Harris.


Nah, Matt Ryan and P Willy sound like a great start.
Not convinced with Matt Ryan yet. He's had 1 good (no great) season.

My picks are:

Off: Adrian Peterson
Def: Willis
Jordan Gross
DeMarcus Ware

No. Teams have to offer up any 5 players who were on their 53 man roster. However, the expansion team can only take up to 2 players from any one team.

The benefit for the offering team is that the player that is chosen has his salary completely wiped away from that team. Meaning, no dead money. So a team can clear space very easily. Thus, there is an incentive for teams to offer up solid role players, possibly a few starters. And the expansion team can acquire NFL-worthy talent to build around.

Tom Brady and Vince Wilfork.....damn Patriots.

I was also gonna say Patrick Willis, but ILB's are easier to find than NT's. And yes, I would stick with the 3-4 defense.

My OC and DC would be:

Marty Mornhinweg and Rex Ryan
