Tony Romo Retires

Well, this isn’t too surprising. Dak Prescott took his spot and Tony Romo became obsolete. He was younger, better, and didn’t get injured every ten games he played. He was old too, so he did only have about only four more years maximum. Besides, he a lot of injuries too. Some minor, but all ended up in Tony missing at least one game. He got one injury per season or preseason since 2010. Ouch. There were many theories on wether Romo would retire or go to free agency. Some said he might stay with the Cowboys, but we all knew that was unlikely.

Tony Romo. Despite all his injuries, he is still considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of the 2000’s, and some say one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Let’s flash back to his best year in 2014, when Tony Romo is shaking off his injury from 2013 took a loss to San Fran in week one, but bounced back and came back with a six game winning streak. He then lost one game to the Eagles on Thanksgiving, then got one more win before guess what; another injury. Surely, most certainly, not the best season, but I needed to flash back to his personal best season just cuz.

This may be hard to believe, but Romo is thinking about playing for the Dallas Mavericks. But, because I’m only responsible for football, I don’t need to write about that. I never really liked Tony Romo or the Cowboys, but because he’s so popular and all, I need to write about him. So, don’t blame me if I did a bad job, blame my non-liking Cowboys mind.lololo

Eddie Lacy Heading to the Seahawks

Former Packers running back Eddie Lacy has a total of 3,435 yards in four seasons along with 23 touchdowns. Not too bad, but we recently have news on Eddie going to Seattle. The Seattle Seahawks are trying their best to retain a good running back, because Marshawn Lynch retired. They’ve been doing a pretty good job with that with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise, and all. Eddie Lacy will be a huge improvement to the Seahawks, helping them in this year’s super bowl run and the run game in the regular season. Lacy suffered an ankle injury in 2016, and was then a free agent. As Seattle picks him up, we will most likely see major improvements on the Seahawks’ run game.eddiiiiiieeeee

Brandin Cooks Traded to Pats

I’ve mentioned Brandin Cooks in one of my previous posts called “Should the Eagles Trade for Brandin Cooks?”. In that post, I was talking about Brandin Cooks going to the Philadelphia Eagles, but at the same time, the Patriots were looking at Cooks as well. Recently, he was traded for the first-round pick of 2017 and their third round choice to the Saints for Brandin. If Tom Brady wasn’t powerful enough, this should do it with Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, and Gronk. This continues the Patriots’ wild free agency run, taking Stephen Gilmore earlier. So, just like that, the Patriots have an even higher chance of winning their second super bowl in a row. You’ll see what I mean when the Patriots go 13-3 or better.brandon-cooks

Alshon Jeffery to be shipped to Philidelphia

Alshon Jeffery has been mentioned in my previous post: “10 Free Agents that could be Game-Changers”. We talked about Jay Cutler, who is now a free agent; being the wrong quarterback for Jeffery. But now, Jeffery will be playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, whose quarterback is Carson Wentz. The improvement will help the Eagles deeply in the air attack, seen as Carson Wentz had 14 interceptions in 2016. So, with that being said, we will se wether my predictions of Alshon Jeffery are right or totally wrong.trolol

10 Free Agents that could be Game-Changers in 2017 (Not in any Order)

10. Alshon Jeffery, WR, Bears

trolol

Alshon Jeffery is not the most thought-about wide receiver, but as we’ve seen before, he can be pretty explosive. This guy has loads of potential, and to reach that potential, he needs a good or at least decent quarterback. It’s a shame that he’s had five seasons wasted on the bears, but if the team that picks him up has a good quarterback, this guy could be epic.

9. Jamaal Charles, RB, Chiefs

jamaal-charles-nfl-kansas-city-chiefs-denver-broncos-590x900

Let’s face it, Jamaal Charles is already a game-changer. But, there are some teams that are in need of a running back. To those teams, an opportunity has come. Charles has 7,260 career yards and 43 career TDs. So really, whichever team picks him up will have an impressive run game.

8. DeSean Jackson, WR, Redskins

DeSean Jackson

DeSean Jackson is a very speedy player, and could dominate with the right quarterback. This guy’s job is pretty simple; run for 40 yards, catch the ball, score a touchdown. On teams like the Panthers, Seahawks, and maybe even Patriots, DeSean can possibly make some playoff efforts.

7. Dont’a Hightower, ILB, Patriots

Dont'a Hightower

This guy has 17 career sacks, so not too bad for an inside linebacker. He forced a safety this season too. Also not too bad. The former Patriot will soon be entering his prime years. If the right team picks him up, he can possibly lead the team to the playoffs.

6. A.J. Bouye, CB, Texans

USP NFL: AFC WILD CARD-OAKLAND RAIDERS AT HOUSTON S FBN USA TX

Although he’s got only 6 picks and one TD, A.J. has potential. I mean, he actually managed to pick off Tom Brady in the divisional round this season. I know I say this every single time, but if he goes to the right team, he could possibly be a game changer.

5. Colin Kaepernick, QB, 49ersthe kneeler

Yes, the kneeler. But, with 72 passing TD’s and 13 rushing TD’s, he can get better. If he lands on a team that has some good receivers, he could be a little more respected.

4. Darrelle Revis, CB, JetsDerrell REvis

With 29 career picks, and 466 career yards, Revis is and will be great, no matter which team picks him up. Darrelle Revis is no stranger to switching teams; in 2013, he was shipped to the Buccaneers, and the next season shipped to the Pats and played in super bowl 49. I’ll be interested to see who picks him up.

3. Adrian Peterson, RB, Vikings

AP

Well, if you didn’t pick up Jamaal Charles on time, at least you got AP. He may have a few years left, but worth the money. With 11,747 career yards and 97 career TD’s, he’s unstoppable, unless, of course, he’s injured. But seriously, dat face tho…

2. Sam Shields, CB, Packers

sammy the tree

Sam Shields has 245 tackles and 18 picks. This man has been dubbed a “legend” in Madden, but I think their exaggerating. Sam Shields isn’t great, but he can be great if he goes on a team that will function more with him. But, otherwise, he should just keep doing what he’s doing.

  1. Julius Peppers, OLB, Packersjulius peppers                            This beast has 644 tackles, 143.5 sacks, and 11 picks. He may be 37, but still a boss. Peppers, like Darrelle Revis, he’s no stranger to peing on new teams. He was drafted as a Panther, went to Chicago, then to Green Bay. Personally, I think that the Panthers should have Peppers for a few more years while they have might get better cornerbacks. No matter who picks him up, he will still be a notable linebacker.

 

3 Free Agents the Carolina Panthers Need to Target

Personally, I’m a Panthers fan. I’m kinda writing this because of that but, anyway, the Panthers were beasts in 2015. They went 15-1 in the regular season and came short of world champions in super bowl 50. Quarterback Cam Newton was league MVP and many began to think this was the start of a rise-up for the Panthers. But, the Panthers went 6-10 in 2016, ending up lowest in the division. This was due to a terrible secondary, because Josh Norman went to the Redskins, and maybe an even just as bad offensive line. So, here are some free agents Carolina should target.

  1. DeSean Jackson Desean jackson.jpg                        With Ted Ginn in free agency, DeSean Jackson would be a good replacement, a guy who can go deep and make big catches, and a speedster. This guy could be dangerous to have with Kelvin Benjamin on the other side.
  2. Captain Munnerlyn captain-munnerlyni                        The Panthers are in a big need of a cornerback. After Josh Norman left, the Panthers tried to keep a decent secondary with James Bradberry, Daryl Worley, Zack Sanchez. These guys are ok, but there’s nobody very consistent in the nickel and Captain Munnerlyn can easily fit that spot. Maybe not for a long time, due to his age, but still just what Carolina needs for a cornerback.
  3. Andrew Whitworthandrew-whitworth                          As I mentioned before, Carolina needs addressing to their offensive line. The offensive line needs to be able to stop big threats from reaching Cam Newton, who’s been taking a lot of sacks. If Cam is going to stay healthy, Carolina needs to get a better offensive line. Andrew Whitworth is just the person the Panthers’ offense needs to protect Cam.

Should the Eagles Trade for Brandin Cooks?

Should the Eagles trade for Brandin Cooks? This guy is a legit wide receiver with 215 receptions, 2,861 yards, and 20 touchdowns. He also hit a top speed of 21.89 mph. on an 87 yard touchdown reception. This is exactly what the Eagles need. The Philadelphia Eagles are 2004 NFC champions, their Super bowl run stopped short by the Patriots. Over the past 13 years, the Eagles have lowered in rank. By a lot. The Eagles need to seize this chance to become a more respected team. What about the New Orleans Saints? Would they accept the trade? Drew Brees and Brandin Cooks are very close. In, fact they’re even neighbors. But is Cooks left, Brees would have his eyes more open to Willie Snead and Coby Fleener. But still, no reliable Brandin Cooks to give the pigskin to. I think that this will negatively affect the Saints. Who knows if either side will accept? But, it’ll be interesting to see who picks him up. Maybe, he might not even go to the Eagles. We’ll see who picks this heck of a wide receiver up.brandiin

Chiefs Drop Jamaal Charles

The Kansas City Chiefs are known for having a few weapons like Alex Smith, Jeremy Maclin, Tyreek Hill, etc. But there’s one running back that would easily get on this list; Jamaal Charles. This guy has 7,260 career yards and 43 career touchdowns. But, this season, he only had 40 yards and 1 touchdown. How could this happen? Charles only played in eight games and started five games over the past two years, totaling 404 yards on the ground. This was happening because of knee injuries. Jamaal is the all-time Chiefs rushing leader with 7,620 yards. Philadelphia is a possibility and so are many other teams. This man has a few years left on his legs, so I’ll be interested to see who this picks this beast up.
