Jerry Angelo is a former personnel director for the Bucs and former general manager of the Bears. Each week, Angelo answers your questions regarding the NFL. Send your questions to with "ask the expert'' in the subject line. The most interesting question will be selected.

No one ever remembers what a team accomplishes in May. So how important are those OTAs? And are they more important for a bad team than a good one?

The OTA period is as much about team building as it is installing new offensive and defensive schemes. For the more established teams, it's more important than creating new wrinkles for what they are already doing.

It’s the first time the ’15 team meets and practices together. It is more important to the poorer teams, who usually have new coaches and more new faces, than the established teams.

I like that statement about the only reviews that count: on Mondays…..wish the media would pipe down with the Winston hype until he actually proves worthy of it at the NFL level.
