Derrick Henry has decided to take the safe route, opposed to taking all that he could get from the Tennessee Titans. Henry, who would ideally love to sign a long term deal with the Titans..
With the bulk of free agency ending and the draft quickly approaching, it is time for fans to see if the newest additions to their team was worth the money that was spent.
The Tennessee Titans are bringing back OLB, Kamalei Correa. The 25 year old is coming off his best season yet. His contract is for one-year, and is expected to be for 3.5 million. He made vast improvements last season, and he came on strong late in the year, when it mattered the most. But, he really proved his worth in the playoffs.
Tom Brady and Chris Godwin should have fantastic chemistry both on & off the field. Who will wear the number 12?
What if I told you, that an NFL quarterback threw for 5,109 yards and added 33 touchdown passes. What if I also told you, that he threw the ball to the opposing team’s 30 times. What if I told you, that he would be replaced by the greatest of all time, Tom Brady.
As we get closer to this years draft it due time to look at it in it’s full scope. Let’s blueprint the New York Giants potential draft. Whilst they have some great young pieces there are still needs on both the offense and defense, although some less than others. We’re shooting for realism, let’s get into it!
Rookies! On today’s show Pride and Q go over some quick pieces of news and then get right into the rookie review! In this episode, they go through the rookie quarterbacks and running backs and analyze their first fantasy football season. They will look at their game logs, their consistency charts, their production around the goal line and more!
I think we all know that Detroit has a lot of work to do going into this off-season. Finishing with an abysmal record that warranted the 3rd overall pick in this year’s draft, and a mandate to win-now from Martha Ford, the QuinnTricia brain trust has been acting with a sense of urgency during the 2020 Free Agency Period. Both Bob Quinn and Matt “Rocket Scientist” Patricia know that it’s now or never this year for their jobs with the Lions. If they don’t perform, they’ll both be crawling back to Daddy Belichick in New England in 2021.
Well, it did not take long for the inevitable to happen. P.J. Walker, an XFL future Hall-of-Famer no doubt, has been signed by the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. The XFL’s MVP led the league Champion Houston Roughnecks to a perfect 5-0 start before the inaugural season was cut short by the COVID-19 virus. That didn’t stop the Panthers’ front office from signing the 25-year-old to pair him up with his former Temple coach in Matt Rhule.
The Atlanta Falcons have certainly made headlines since free agency opened up. Atlanta snagged Dante Fowler Jr., on a fairly cheap deal for a premium edge rusher, which bolsters one of their biggest needs. This gives Atlanta a fairly scary front four with Grady Jarett, Takk McKinley and Tyeler Davison. The Falcons also made a move on another Rams player, with Todd Gurley. When the Rams released him, he wasted no time getting in touch with Falcons star Julio Jones and was eventually signed to the Falcons. Of course, with Austin Hooper leaving, the Falcons found his replacement when they traded for Hayden Hurst. At the cost of securing some top names.
Tom Brady is gone, so now what? It’s hard to believe and it will never not sting seeing Tom Terrific in a different team’s uniform. Patriots fans, you’ve experienced nearly two decades of dominance, something that is as rare as a supernova in the professional sports world. The Patriots have accomplished what few other sports franchises have done in history. This is the truest definition of a dynasty. Across sports, the only other comparable teams that come to mind are the Popovich-led Spurs and the Lombardi Packers. Nine Super Bowl appearances, six Super Bowl victories, all of those being on the arm of Tom Brady and the mind of Bill Belichick. But fear not Patriots fans! The dynasty isn’t dead yet; not if Bill Belichick has anything to say about it.
A few years ago, this would have seemed unthinkable, but the toll of injuries and the wear and tear from his physical style of play have worn the former MVP down so much, that the last time we saw him on the field, he looked a shell of his old self.
With Mike Person getting cut and the 49ers only signing a depth piece to replace him, do they look to the draft for their next starting Guard?
On Friday, Broncos agreed to terms with almost 27 year old, 2x pro-bowl running back, Melvin Gordon. Aside from the immediate excitement of revenge games versus his former team the Los Angeles Chargers, the running game will take a leap forward in 2020. Denver and MGIII agreed to a two year deal worth $16 million, $13.5 million guaranteed, making him the 6th highest paid running back in the league. Denver will be one of only three teams with two pro-bowl running backs on their roster. While I’m not thrilled about the contract, I’m enticed by Gordon’s pass catching ability, as well as his blocking ability, and am hopeful this move will make sense come the end of 2020.
With the bulk of the craziness of NFL Free Agency (and its been crazy), coming to a close, it’s due time to look towards the NFL Draft, if you haven’t been already. Specifically, the top of the draft where we have a few teams that could move around. First the New York Giants, who were big players in the open market, focusing on defensive production and offensive depth. With a plethora of options at offensive tackles, including Jedrick Wills Jr. and Tristan Wirfs, we could see the Giants trade down, nab some extra draft capital and still be in a good spot to grab an elite building block. Second, our prospective partners, the Los Angeles Chargers. With the mutual parting of quarterback Philip Rivers, his departure to the Colts and Tom Brady’s move to Tampa Bay, the Chargers are in the market for a signal caller. Tyrod Taylor has decent accuracy, above average ability to read defenses and good leadership, but a lack of arm strength. So, with options such as Oregon prospect Justin Herbert and pro-ready Tua Tagovailoa ready and available this year, it’s likely the Bolts will search for a viable upgrade. It’s also likely and necessary to move out of the 6th slot, with the Miami Dolphins ahead of them and also in the market for a QB. Now there’s also a possibility of the Detroit Lions swerving and selecting Tagovailoa, but that will not be discussed. That’s already been discussed in-depth, here. Plus, the last time the Giants and Chargers pulled off a draft day deal I’d say it turned out pretty well. Let’s take a look at some potential outcomes!
