After learning that he cannot fulfill his dream of being a professional athlete, Jordan, who finished with a finance degree from De La Salle University (2014), decided to do the next best thing, which is to write about sports and the athletes themselves. His first love is basketball, but eventually, he started to regularly cover other sports like American football, Formula 1, tennis, and soccer. Prior to joining Gridiron Heroics, he has worked for several reputable outlets like FOX Sports PH and ClutchPoints.

While it is certain that Jordan Love will be the Green Bay Packers’ QB1 for the foreseeable future, it is still uncertain who will be the backup behind the former Utah State signal-caller. Acquiring a capable QB2 is one of the Green Bay Packers’ priorities this summer, and they can do so via the open market. Bleacher Report’s Timothy Rapp suggested that Green Bay might have to consider trading for Zach Wilson (or sign Ryan Tannehill). “Green Bay’s current backups behind ascending star Jordan Love are 2023 fifth-round pick Sean Clifford and Alex McGough,” wrote Rapp. “The Packers could seek…

The Green Bay Packers have acquired Josh Jacobs and Xavier McKinney as two of their biggest signings in 2024 NFL free agency. And as it turns out, Jordan Love played a huge role in why it is so. Josh Jacobs and Xavier McKinney reunited in Green Bay Packers In an interview with ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, both Jacobs and McKinney said that the idea of playing with a budding young quarterback in Jordan Love was one of the main factors (besides money) why they pushed for a move to Wisconsin. “Obviously, young quarterback, young skill guys, good offensive line,” Jacobs said.…

After spending his first three NFL seasons with the Chicago Bears, Justin Fields was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a 2025 sixth-round pick that could become a fourth-round selection, depending on his playing time. Many were surprised by the lack of return that the Chicago Bears got for Fields, considering he was a top lottery pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, including Robert Griffin III. With that said, the former NFL quarterback now-turned-NFL analyst has offered sage advice for the former Ohio State signal-caller. Robert Griffin III called the Justin Fields trade before it happened “The return the Chicago…

The Kansas City Chiefs took a step in the right direction in addressing their need to fill out the wide receiver room with their latest acquisition of Marquise “Hollywood” Brown in free agency. Brown is coming off a lackluster 2023 campaign with the Arizona Cardinals, as he only recorded 51 receptions for 574 receiving yards and four touchdowns. However, it can be noted that his season was cut short due to injuries. The Kansas City Chiefs are fresh from successfully defending their Super Bowl and are hoping to pull off a three-peat next season, so the fact that they’ve added…

Upon announcing Dodson’s signing, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Tariq Woolen…

The Las Vegas Raiders are one of the biggest winners early on in the NFL’s legal tampering period after they pulled off a massive coup by signing Christian Wilkins in the open market. Christian Wilkins was signed to a four-year deal worth $110 million, with $84.75 million guaranteed by the Las Vegas Raiders, and the former Miami Dolphins defensive tackle is more than excited to play for his new NFL team in 2024. When Wilkins hit free agency, he said that he was eager to join the Las Vegas Raiders because that was his preferred destination. It turns out that…

After losing Russell Wilson to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Denver Broncos have a gaping hole in the quarterback room, so they are not expected to do much in the 2024 NFL campaign, especially since Jarrett Stidham is likely to be their Week 1 starter. In this free agency period, the Denver Broncos have passed on opportunities to sign the likes of Jacoby Brissett, Joe Flacco, Baker Mayfield, Mac Jones, or Kirk Cousins, among others, so the team seems to be looking ahead. And if rumors are to be believed, the Denver Broncos could look to tank for top quarterback prospect…

The Houston Texans struggled with their run game last season, so acquiring Joe Mixon via a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals is a great move. With little depth in the running back room, Mixon is now the undisputed RB1 in Houston. Joe Mixon is coming off yet another solid campaign for the Cincinnati Bengals, as he managed to record his third 1,000-rushing yard season in the last five seasons. In 2023, the Oklahoma alumni recorded 1,034 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns in 257 carries, plus 52 receptions for 376 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns. Mixon benefited from playing…
