With the world set to enter a major winter storm, the NFL is in the middle of a massive offseason.
The league is now considering the possibility of players wearing sleeping bags on the sidelines to help them get the most out of their time in the cold.
Here are five players who will need to get the sleep they need.
Matt Cassel and Tom Brady The New England Patriots QB is currently on a bye after leading the NFL in passing yards and completing 57.4% of his passes.
Cassel is a great quarterback with a very efficient passing game.
He’s got some pretty big shoes to fill with Brady coming off of a career year and Cassel has a chance to become the first quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards and 10,000 touchdowns in his first two seasons.
Casse is also the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL right now, making $8.4 million per season.
But the Patriots need Cassel to have the best of seasons for Brady to remain the best quarterback in football.
He has shown flashes of being a very good QB and Casse has a lot to learn to be the best.
J.J. Watt and Odell Beckham Jr. The New Orleans Saints running back is having a strong season, but his production has dipped in recent weeks.
His rushing totals have dropped, and his yards per carry has dropped.
The good news for Watt is that he’s also been getting more touches than he did last year.
Watt was one of the most dynamic and physical backs in the league last year and he should be able to take a big step forward in 2017.
But he needs to find a way to make more plays in the passing game, especially if he’s going to be a top-tier running back.
Terrance West and Tyreek Hill Tyreek Bell, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, is having one of his best seasons ever.
Bell is the most productive running back in the draft and he’s now tied for the lead in yards per game.
The Titans need more of the ball from West, who needs to get more of it into his hands.
He also needs to make plays in his own end zone.
Tyreek Miller and DeAndre Hopkins Hopkins Hopkins has had some good moments this season.
He should get plenty of carries from Miller, the former No. 1 overall pick who is the highest paid player in the game right now.
Miller has the talent to be one of college football’s top running backs and Hopkins has the potential to be as well.
Mike Gillislee and Arian Foster Gillis Lee has shown that he can be a productive pass rusher.
Foster has been getting sacks and holding onto them.
The Ravens need more from Gillislees rushing attack.
Gillis, Foster and Foster have been a solid rushing attack in the past.
They need more production from the other offensive linemen in this offense, especially Gillis and Foster.
Jordan Howard and DeAngelo Williams Both Howard and Williams are big, physical defensive players who can rush the passer.
Both players need more consistency and they need to have consistent chemistry with each other.
Ryan Fitzpatrick and Terrance Williams Both Fitzpatrick and Williams have shown flashes this season of being very effective pass rushers.
But they need more playmaking from the QB. 8.
Ryan Mallett and Ryan Fitzpatrick Ryan Malletts biggest problem is getting the ball out of his hands in time.
Fitzpatrick is getting sacked at a higher rate than any other QB.
Fitzpatrick needs to use his legs to run the football, not just run like a running back and take the ball away.
Ryan Mathews and Terrence Williams The New York Jets RB is coming off a career-best season.
Mathews is averaging 7.2 yards per rush and he has more than double the yards per reception of any other running back besides LeSean McCoy.
The Jets need to add more production for the Eagles offense, which needs more of their explosive plays from Mathews.
Jason Pierre-Paul and Marcus Peters The New Carolina Panthers running back has been on fire lately.
Pierre-Peters has been one of New York’s most consistent offensive players in recent seasons and he needs more help from the offensive line.
Brandon Jacobs and James Conner The New Washington Redskins WR is coming into his own as a receiving threat.
Jacobs and Conner have shown they can be dangerous as pass catchers in the short and long-term.
DeMarco Murray and Jordan Howard Both Murray and Howard are two of the best running backs in NFL history.
Both Murray has shown signs of being an elite back and Howard is now a better player.
But both need to be able play at a high level.
Ryan Nassib and Dez Bryant Nassib has been a very productive wide receiver, but he is currently dealing with an injury and Bryant hasn’t had
