SAN JOSE: For the first time in 12 seasons, the San Jose Sabercats roster will not feature Mark Grieb. When the future first ballot Hall of Fame quarterback announced his intentions to retire on November 8, 2012, the SaberCats were quick to find a suitable replacement. They did just that with the addition of another future first ballot Hall of Famer, Aaron Garcia. Garcia will enter his AFL-record 18th season in 2013, but is still playing some of the best football of his career, passing for 4,985 yards and a career-high 118 touchdowns with the San Antonio Talons last year. Those numbers came while working with a rotating receiving corps that was plagued by injuries last season. Assuming the SaberCats stay healthy, Garcia should have as talented a lineup as he ever has in the League. Huey Whittaker, Hank Edwards, Samora Goodson and Fred Williams all return from last year's San Jose roster, while the team has also added former Jacksonville Sharks utility back Jamarko Simmons, versatile rookie Corbin Louks and one of Garcia's all-time favorite targets, Jason Willis. A pair of longtime San Jose standouts, James Roe and Ben Nelson, remain free agents. The offensive line will also be a strength of the team, where the club will be aided by the additions of four free agents - TJ Watkins, George Bussey, Michael Diaz and Raymond McNeil. If they can keep Garcia upright, there should not be any dropoff for the League's top-ranked offense from a year ago. On the defensive side of the ball, the team will have to deal with some significant losses. Losing the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Joe Sykes, and massive nose guard Tim McGill to San Antonio will no doubt hurt. The team is also currently without fellow defensive linemen Gabe Nyenhuis and Jermaine Smith, both of whom remain unassigned. To fill the void, the team brought back four-year veteran Jason Stewart and added former Golden Gophers standout Cedric McKinley. Rookies Terrell Turner, Christian Tupou and Michael Ebbitt will also compete for playing time. The linebacker position will see some interesting competition as well, as All-Arena Mac backer Francis Maka is joined by Justin Lawrence and Justin Warren for 2013. The squad should be set with starters in the secondary, as incumbent playmaker Mervin Brookins is joined by veteran Ken Fontenette and former All-Arena selection J.C. Neal. That trio will be pushed by second-year man Jameel Dowling and rookies Andre Freeman and Will Billingsley. The team has yet to be assigned a kicker for 2013.
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.
