1-Man’s Opinion on Sports-Wednesday. “NFL SPENDING SPREE”

Posted by on March 13th, 2024  •  0 Comments  • 



Day 2-of NFL free agency was just as wild as opening day, and teams continued to write big checks to lure players.

And other teams went the trade route to help themselves.

Who made the headlines on Tuesday?

RAVENS…They replace one stud running back with another.  Maybe an upgrade when you swap off Derrick Henry to make up for the loss of Gus Edwards.  Turner probably has 2-good years left in him, and he has a (9,020Y) on his resume of success running the ball in Tennessee.

STEELERS…Pretty good upgrade getting Ravens LB-Patrick Queen.  Steady, physical, smart, a Mike Tomlin type of player.

HOUSTON…Now this has been an off season for the Texans.  They trade for power run back Joe Mixon of the Bengals, and then land Vikings top pass rusher Danielle Hunter in free agency with a (2Y-49M) package.

CAROLINA…They have the QB-Bryce Young and now they have big play people to put around him, trading for spicey Steelers WR-Diontae Johnson, who averaged 18YPC.  They also got Rams big DT-A’Shawn Robinson.

QB MOVES…Virtually all the recognizable passers are now gone.  Marcus Mariota goes to Washington;  Tyrod Taylor, a really serviceable backup, goes to the Jets from the Giants; Remember Drew Lock, ex Broncos-Seattle, he is now Aaron Rodgers’ backup with the Jets;  Jamwis Winston winds up with the Browns; and Sam Darnold will become the starter in Minnesota, which has lost alot of people.

Keeping score at home, thru two days of dealing, 86-players have now changed teams in NFL free agency.  On we go to Wednesday, with more deals to come.
