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.
PITTSBURGH: Pittsburgh's power stems from its secondary. Coming off a season in which the Power led the Arena Football League in both total defense and pass defense, the team only bolstered its defensive backfield during the offseason, bringing in All-Arena Jack linebacker Alvin Ray Jackson and veteran defensive back Sergio Gilliam to mesh with the franchise's career interceptions leader, Chris LeFlore. Jackson immediately gives Pittsburgh an edge at the Jack position, after snagging 14 interceptions ' more than any Jack in the history of the League ' with the New Orleans VooDoo last season. Meanwhile, Gilliam led the Kansas City Command with six interceptions and LeFlore led the Power with nine interceptions last season. With Gilliam and LeFlore in place, the Power should be more adequately prepared for the potential loss of leading tackler Bryan Williams. On the defensive line, Dominie Pittman was intriguing as a rookie last season. The team will need a big year from him, especially if fellow lineman Anthony Degrate does not return to the squad. The defense will need to be sound if the Power are to earn their first playoff berth in franchise history. On offense, Pittsburgh boasts a number of interesting, yet unproven, options. Pittsburgh's Achilles' heel the last two seasons has been the quarterback position. Coach Derek Stingley hopes to change that this year with the addition of former LSU signal-caller Jordan Jefferson. Though a tremendous talent, Jefferson is still an unproven commodity who will have to beat out fellow rookie Shane Austin and third-year journeyman Steven Sheffield for the job. There will also be an interesting battle at fullback, with last season's starter, Tyre Young, competing for carries with Kirby Griffin ' who took last year off after helping the Jacksonville Sharks to an ArenaBowl championship in 2011 ' and Jason Ford ' who ranks second in Illinois history with 26 career touchdowns. Question marks still remain at the receiver position, however. The franchise's career receiving leader, Mike Washington, returns for a third season as the squad's clear number one target, but the next three receivers on the team's 2012 depth chart all remain free agents. The biggest name on the list is undoubtedly former Ironman of the Year, PJ Berry, who has starred as a receiver and kick return specialist over the last three seasons. The team is also currently without the big play abilities of Oderick Turner and Randy Hymes, who are both unassigned to this point. On the team's current depth chart, the recently acquired Shamar Graves comes in as the second-most experienced wideout on the roster after hauling in 29 passes with the Jacksonville Sharks last season. Though the team is certainly not devoid of talent at the position, bringing in another veteran receiver ' whether a new face or one from last year's squad ' may likely be on the immediate agenda. In the kicking game, Pittsburgh hopes that new acquisition Josh Smith can help the team move up from a dreadful 70 percent conversion rate on extra-point attempts last season. Coach Stingley insists this will be a very interesting training camp for Pittsburgh and with plenty of talented, yet unproven options, Power fans will want to stay tuned during the month of March.
