Okay, Le'Veon's a big one (obviously) but if you're a top 10 franchise in the National Football League and not expecting to have a franchise player contract dispute at the end of every season then that's like not expecting the sun to rise in the east and set in the west (ask recent Bushwood Gardens card member, Jared Goff)...

but this? This is nothing! Justin Hunter is still on the team? Tomlin just signed Ridley three weeks ago, and Arthur Moats has the most hokey Medieval Times name I've ever encountered. Listen, you guys will be fine (unless Ben retires, then ohhhhh boy). Just lock in Bell & Boswell and let the rest of the chips fall where they may. You guys have the Jags to worry about first (ha, I know, but hey, any given Sunday).
