CLEVELAND: The 2013 Cleveland Gladiators will certainly look different than the 2012 squad. As it stands now, the team is highlighted by 18 rookies and returns just eight players from last year's roster. On the plus side, three of those eight returners were among the team's top four receivers in 2012. All-Arena wideout Dominick Goodman leads the bunch, as he looks to improve upon a record-setting 2012 season. Joining him once again will be Thyron Lewis and Carlese Franklin. The man throwing them the ball remains a mystery, however. Trusty veteran John Dutton remains unassigned and very well may have taken his final snap in an AFL uniform. If that's the case, the Gladiators will need to rely on either Chris Dieker or Brian Zbydniewski to take over the quarterbacking duties. Both served as backups last season in Iowa and New Orleans, respectively. The team did bring in some help along the offensive line, adding C.J. Cobb and Shannon Breen in free agency. Defensively, the team will rely heavily on new faces, as nearly every starter from the League's first-ranked scoring defense a year ago will need to be replaced. Pass rusher Brian Brikowski figures to lead the rebuilding charge. Brikowski tallied 20 tackles, including six for loss, in five games with the team last season. Former Georgia Force defensive lineman Kris Cooke should also provide some veteran experience, while former Michigan Wolverines and New England Patriots linebacker Pierre Woods possesses the raw talent to become an instant difference maker for the squad. Perhaps no position group was hit harder in free agency than the team's defensive secondary. The team will be without all five of their top defensive backs from 2012, a group that ranked second in the League in passing defense. With that kind of turnover, big things are expected from Maurice Williams and Lenny Wicks in 2013. Arguably the biggest acquisition made by the team this offseason is the addition of defensive back Jamar Love, who started 17 games as a rookie last season with the Milwaukee Mustangs. The team will rely heavily on the former Arkansas Razorback to bring leadership and big plays on the defensive side of the ball. Steve Thonn will go into 2013 with what looks to be almost an entirely new team, but that does not mean the club is without talent. But with a roster of 18 rookies and only two players (Zbydniewski and Franklin) with more than two seasons under their belts, the Gladiators will need to gel and develop quickly in order to stay competitive in a much improved American Conference.
UTAH: The Utah Blaze, blessed with one of the most electric attacks in the Arena Football League in 2012, experienced a fair amount of turnover in their receiving corps during the offseason. Tysson Poots, one of the toughest young receivers in the game, bolted to division rival Arizona. Similarly, Alvance Robinson, who posted 1,015 receiving yards in 10 games with the Blaze last season, has been assigned to another ArenaBowl contender in Philadelphia. The Blaze didn't waste time mourning, however, bringing in potent weapons in L.J. Castile, who recorded 1,196 receiving yards for New Orleans last season, and Jared Jenkins, who reeled off 119 receptions for 1,610 yards as a rookie with the Milwaukee Mustangs last year. Castile and Jenkins will join Aaron Lesue ' who more than doubled his touchdown total from 27 in 2011 to 56 last season ' in providing Utah with a three-headed monster at the receiver position. Where it matters most, however, the Blaze have remained stable, with quarterback Tommy Grady coming back after a record-breaking year in Salt Lake City and Ben Stallings, the franchise's all-time leading rusher, returning to Utah for a third year. So long as the Blaze have Tommy 'The Tower' Grady, who accumulated an unbelievable 5,870 passing yards and 142 touchdowns last season, they will be head and shoulders above most defenses in the AFL ' literally and figuratively. On the defensive side of the ball, 'Sack Lake City' took a bit of a hit themselves with the departure of Mike Lewis, who compiled 23 sacks during his two years in Utah. Utah will now rely on Mike Alston to help keep offensive lines from doubling up on Caesar Rayford, who is the franchise record holder with 23.5 career sacks, and Keenan Mace, who flashed All-Arena potential as a rookie nose guard last season. With Mace and Rayford still donning the orange and black, the Blaze should be able to generate an above-average pass rush, which when combined with experienced defensive backs in Al Phillips and Josh Ferguson should lead to poise in their pass defense. Phillips and Ferguson will need to emerge as leaders, however, given that the Blaze have five rookie defensive backs on their roster at the moment, and veteran leader David Hyland remains a free agent. While the spotlight will surely shine on the Blaze as they attempt to wrest West Division supremacy from the Rattlers, attention should also be paid to an emerging rivalry between Utah and Spokane, from which the Blaze took offensive lineman Shannon Tevaga, as well as Alston and Ferguson.
