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?
Mock draft season! With most of the big names signed so far in free agency, we have decided to do another dynasty startup mock draft! In today’s episode Pride and Q are joined by Miles Peacock again as well as two other writers in this mock draft. They draft through 14 rounds and give analysis on every pick and explain their differing draft strategies when at different draft positions! They also at the beginning of the show discuss the impacts of Robby Anderson and Breshad Perriman signing with new teams!
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!

Free agency has been a wild one. I can’t remember a time where free agency has been heightened to this magnitude. And with all of the major sports being shut down due to the Coronavirus, you could say that this is the type of entertainment every sports fan needs. But on the Tennessee Titans front, it has been business as usual. So, here is a recap of what the Titans have done so far in free agency.
In the year of LSU, one name has stood out the most. Joe Burrow. His Heisman winning campaign was an incredible season and one that will talked about for ages. However, to be a great Quarterback, you need a great Wide Receiver…
Media coverage surrounding the NFL’s free agency period has been dominated by the departure of DeAndre Hopkins from the Houston Texans and his fractured relationship with general manager/head coach Bill O’Brien. Fair warning: This article is not intended to sift through who is at fault for failed negotiations leading up to a trade that shocked the league. Rather it attempts to explore O’Brien’s thought process and examines recent roster acquisitions and what moves the team is now inclined to make regarding the weapons at Deshaun Watson’s disposal.
John Elway has quietly put together a strong free agency. From securing a trade for A.J. Bouye in early March to trading a 7th round pick for pro-bowler Jurrell Casey, Elway and Co. have been making what appear to be all the right moves…
The former Panthers cornerback is set to ink a 3 year/$45M deal with the Giants, that equals to about $15M AAV. Bradberry was drafted by Dave Gettleman, with the Panthers, in the 2nd round of the 2016 draft to replace Josh Norman, who departed for the Redskins earlier that spring. Bradberry additionally has a long, strong frame at 6’1 212 lbs. He’s spent a good chunk of his young career covering some of the leagues best receivers in the NFC South…
The 26-year-old out of West Virginia, earned the nickname “Hitman” after his consistent hard hits against opponents, Karl Joseph is a very hard hitter. Last year with the Oakland Raiders, Joseph had 49 total tackles, and 1 interception.
Tom Brady isn’t a Patriot!?!? That’s right Tom Brady plans on signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers! In this episode Pride and Q discuss the Brady signing and its impacts on fantasy football. They then discuss the Stefon Diggs trade and the impact on fantasy football from it. They then recap the biggest signings related to fantasy football in free agency and provide analysis on what the moves mean moving forward.
This was news we got Thursday afternoon as I hesitantly held on to my power rankings article, because I thought that if I released it, I would jinx it and they wouldn’t play week 6, but that didn’t matter as they followed suit with the other professional sports leagues. The seasons over and I could barely get a handle on what the league had to offer.
According to Tampa Bay Buccaneers WDAE Radio Host Tom Krasniqi, the greatest football player of all time is planning on taking his talents to Tampa Bay. That is right, Tom Brady is expected to head to the NFC South.
The Minnesota Vikings find themselves in an offseason that could be very different than years past. They have very little cap space and have the worst cap situation out of all teams. Minnesota’s 1.3 million in available cap is not enough to get anyone that can help the team. Minnesota will have to resort to cutting veterans and letting the fresh faces get their shot at glory. From what they showed last year, that might not be a bad thing. The Vikings will also have to look into the free-agent market. Minnesota has done a good job in the past at finding a solid player for cheap in the free-agent market.
Day 1 of the legal tampering period was a wild ride for 49ers fans and players alike. As expected, Arik Armstead’s contract was the first domino that needed to fall before the red and gold could begin making any other moves. Armstead was willing to bend quite a bit to help the team stay competitive and took a hometown discount on a back-loaded contract over the next 6 years. Paraag Marathe and John Lynch have bought themselves two more cheap years before the cap hopefully catches up to his contract.
