The Cleveland Browns have an expensive No. 1 quarterback in Deshaun Watson, who has yet to play to the potential of his monster contract. Once he’s healthy, he should be able to resume his role as the team’s QB1. As for his chief backup, that’s not all too clear at the moment. Joe Flacco is a pending free agent, leaving the unproven Dorian Thompson-Robinson as the only QB other than Watson with a contract for the 2024 NFL season. Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com recently fielded a question from a Cleveland Browns fan who asked about the possibility of someone…

The Washington Commanders have the next most precious pick at the 2024 NFL Draft. After the Chicago Bears select the top overall pick, it will be the Commanders’ turn to get theirs in the first round with the No. 2 selection overall. Brent Solak of The Ringer indicated that he has strong feelings about the potential of the Commanders trying to secure the Bears’ pick by trading up for the simple reason that Washington wants to get Caleb Williams. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOQ9TO5lc5E&pp=ygUOY2FsZWIgd2lsbGlhbXM%3D Could the no. 1 pick be on the move again? I can’t shake the feeling that Washington (who currently owns…

Don’t look now but there seems to be a growing belief in the NFL realm that JJ McCarthy is the third-best 2024 NFL Draft quarterback prospect. Caleb Williams of the USC Trojans and Drake Maye of the North Carolina Tar Heels are widely believed No. 1 and No. 2 QBs, respectively, while Jayden Daniels of the LSU Tigers remains the consensus No. 3. However, it may be time to stop believing that McCarthy doesn’t belong in the same tier as Williams and Maye. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYePSHOl2QY According to Ben Solak of The Ringer, at least some people at the NFL Combine in…

The New England Patriots don’t have a promising quarterback situation. In 2023, they had Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe starting under center, and neither did an amazing job. That is also why the Patriots are widely considered in the offseason as a team that needs to shore up their QB room. They just aren’t going to go places with Jones and Zappe.  Enter Tampa Bay Buccaneers Baker Mayfield, whose name gets linked more and more to the New England Patriots as the NFL free agency gets closer and closer. The Buccaneers are still the favored 2024 team of Mayfield, but…

The Minnesota Vikings have a quarterback issue to address this offseason. Kirk Cousins is expected to become a free agent which means he may have already played his last game in Vikings uniform. If Cousins ends up somewhere else, the Vikings will have to find a replacement. One name Rich Eisen brought up as a potential target for the Vikings is Dallas Cowboys backup Trey Lance (h/t Tyler Forness of Vikings Wire). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zu57mG1-Mtw “Trey Lance is a possible solve for the Vikings. Now the Cowboys picked up Lance and kept him on the roster long enough to get a bonus,…

The Atlanta Falcons are set to run it back with offensive lineman Ryan Neuzil after he and the NFC South division franchise agreed on an extension deal, as reported by Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. #Falcons are extending guard Ryan Neuzil on a one-year deal, per source. Neuzil was an exclusive rights free agent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTkHfQZtFgA Atlanta Falcons Make An Under-The-Radar Move Neuzil entered the pros in 2021 when he signed with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent. Before declaring for that year’s NFL Draft, Neuzil played college football with Appalachian State from 2016 to 2020. So far in his…

Deshaun Watson used to be good. But since he started playing for the Cleveland Browns, he hasn’t played like his best days during his time with the Houston Texans. There is still hope for Watson to be THAT quarterback again, but it might also be a good time for the Browns to sniff around for potential QB options – like you know, Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears. This idea has been raised recently by Ben Solak of The Ringer: If they find a starter in Fields, they can escape out of the back door of what is proving to…

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have finally checked one of the major boxes of their offseason by agreeing to a two-year deal with wide receiver Mike Evans. With that already sorted out, the clear next item on the list for the Buccaneers is no other than quarterback Baker Mayfield.  The Buccaneers are still the favorite to sign the former No. 1 overall pick this offseason, but at the same time, there is no such thing as a sure shot in NFL free agency, especially for a quarterback who has just successfully rebuilt his stock. There will always be suitors lining up…

If there was Mulligan in the NFL, the Denver Broncos likely would have used it to take back the enormous mistake of trading for/signing Russell Wilson to a huge contract in 2022. Wilson’s stint with the Broncos is full of bitter memories for the franchise, but at least it is about to end soon, with Denver announcing on Monday that it will be releasing the quarterback this March. Mark Schlereth Did Not Hold Back In His Opinion Of Russell Wilson’s Time With The Denver Broncos A lot has been said about how big of a disaster Wilson’s stint has been…
