Biggest 2020 offseason needs for all 32 NFL teams
As the 2019 NFL playoffs cruise along, 24 teams already have turned their heads to the 2020 offseason -- and the rest of the pack isn't far behind. From the two-win Bengals to whomever ends up being the Super Bowl champion, every team will need something in the offseason.

The prestige associated with continuing to build a resume as an NFL offensive coordinator could be tough to turn down, though.
