A lot happened in the last 15 hours so I may not comment on all of it but I will comment on the ones that struck me…
Seattle trades Center Unger and their #1 for Jimmy Graham and a #4. Seattle had a young center who played effectively for most of the year last year while Unger was hurt and adding Graham to the Lynch/Wilson Offense makes the Seahawks – on paper – the absolute Super Bowl 50 faves.
The Saints giving up their only TD threat (I will just ignore the Mercedes Lewis signing) is a step backwards and with everyone on O just getting older this trends badly for the Saints.
Revis back to the Jets and they also signed Buster Skrine. Revis is years past ‘RevisIsland’ and Skrine is ok as a corner. However in the case of the Jets and their ‘WORST SECONDARY EVER’ this is an improvement and will make them better.
Foles from Philly to STL and Bradford from STL to Philly. My first thought was ‘both teams still need a QB’. I am not really straying from that. A lot is being made of Foles 2013 but that may have just been his moment in time. I will post a picture of my eating of my favourite Chicago BEARS hat if Foles throws 26 TDs with only 2 picks in 2015 for the St. Louis Rams. Bradford may only be in Philly temporarily as he may be a ‘Chip’ (pun intended) to use in moving up to draft Mariotta. He is also the Webster’s definition of injury prone. Look it up – Bradford’s pic is in there.
Gore to the Colts (along with a couple of Defensive F/As) is a good move for Indy. Frank Gore isn’t what he used to be but he will give Indy a year or two of a decent RB to help balance that woefully unbalanced O. If his plane mate Andre Johnson signs to be a vet WR then this is a very successful Free Agency period.
Willis Retired from SF and Jason Worilds also retired. It is refreshing to see younger players choosing to be healthy in their life and not playing until they are Earl Campbelled.
Speaking of SF – losing a key O line guard and Willis and signing Torrey Smith…this is a team sliding downhill fast and are currently looking at residing in the basement in the NFC West.
Arizona signed Both Iupati and Woodley and they are a QB away from being dangerous this year.
More to come later/tomorrow
