Browns Trade for Brock Oswiler

Last season the Browns signed former Redskins QB RG3 this year they trade for the very overpaid Brock Oswieler. The Texans were likely than likely glad to rid themselves of Oswieler after horrific play from him in 2016. 

The trade did cost the Texans a 2017 6th rounder and a 2018 2nd rounder, in return they got a 2017 fourth rounder. All in all it looks as though the Texans might be the losers in this trade but tge Browns are always losers in the end.

Cavs to waive Andrew Bogut

The cavs thought that they were going to get some decent play from former Golden State Warrior Andrew Bogut but fate had other plans. Bogut breaking his tibia less than a minute into his Cavs debut against the Miami Heat making his signing just about useless. 

The team plans to waive Bogut to sign another center and waive Andrew Liggins to save some money. Bogut was signed after the Mavericks brought him out of his contract as he didn’t meet expectations and let’s just say that he definitely didn’t meet expectations in Cleveland.

Pierre Garçon to join 49ers

The 49ers are starting their rebuilding phase by agreeing to sign Redskins reciever Pierre Garçon. Last season he had 1,041 yards on 79 catches. 

The 49ers will have him paired with Jeremy Kerely but with the Quarterback position still in shambles the niners future is still up in the air. The details of his upcoming contract haven’t been released but I’m sure it’ll be some decent cash because Kyle Sannahan  is goingbto have his back. 

Ravens to sign Danny Woodhead

The Baltimore Ravens are looming to get a half decent running back on their team. Ex- Chargers RB Danny Woodhead fits the description pretty well and he’ll  provide some competition for Terrance West ( if he gets resigned) and possibly Javarious “Buck” Allen.

Woodhead is more of a finess back that has recieving skills. If he wins the starting job the team might turn him into a probowler the way they did with Justin Forsett. He could even provide a nice one two combo of Speed & Strength with Terrance West given that he gets resigned. Woodhead has 2,182 yards and 15 TDs since he entered the leauge in 2008. Overall the move is good considering the Ravens are kind of strapped for cash this year but they do need to get a better back or have a interchangeable pair of backs.

Ex Jets WR Brandon Marshall wants to play for Steelers

2017 looks too be one hell of a year for free agents with names like Alshon Jeffery, AJ Bouye, & several other big plagers on the market. Ex Bears & Jets receiver Brandon Marshall is one of the top free agents after requesting to be released from the Jets. The veteran wide out won’t cost too much considering he’s coming off the worst season of his career and he’s 32. 

Marshall would be a good addition to go alongside Antonio Brown and if Martavis Bryant could stay out of trouble the Steelers could have one of the best receiving corps in the NFL. Marshall will definetly draw some attention given that he’s just one season removed from a 1,500 yard season but if he truly wanys to play fir Pittsburgh then it should definitely be easy to get him.

Heat Waive Derrick Williams, Sign Okaro White to 2yr Deal

The Heat have now won 11 straight games with their 115-113 win over the Memphis Grizzlies but one player on the team won’t be with them to help them anymore. That player is the former New York Knick Derrick Williams who was picked up as a free agent prior to the season. Williams was waived in favor of rookie forward Okaro White from Florida State. 

White was signed to a 2 year deal, if Williams isn’t claimed off of waivers then the Heat will have to dish out $5 million because of contract obligations. White’s contract has him covered for the remainder of the season.

Miami Heat Win Their 10th Straight Game

Last night Hassan Whiteside and the Miami Heat beat the Philadelphia 76ers 125-102 winning their 10th Straight game and setting them two games behind the last playoff seed in the Eastern Conference. It wasn’t too long ago that the heat were looking like one of the worst teams in the NBA. The Heat were the second worst team I the East and we’re looking like they were trying to tank for a draft pick. But that all changed with a 109-103 victory over James Harden and the Houston Rockets. In that game Harden dropped 40 points. 

No one can really pin point the exact reason the Heat have gone on this winning streak but the play of PG Goran Dragic and SG Dion Waiters is a likely cause. Regardless of the reason me and the rest of the Heat fans are glad that they’re winning. It’s likely that the Heat could win their next 3-4 games and end the season with a positive record with the way they’re playing. 

Colts Punter Pat McAfee retires 

One of the more comical special teamers in the League retired recently. Colts Punter Pat McAfee retires at age 29 and will be a member of Barstool Sports. McAfee was a probowler in 2015 & 2016. Originally drafted back in 2009 he was one of the better punters in the NFL ad had signed a 5 year contract which would had played him a total of $6 million over the next 2 years. 

McAfee was most retired due to the 3 knee surgeries he’s had over the last 3 years. McAfee had his moments including a first down pass against the Steelers on Thanksgiving day in 2016. The site McAfee will be writing for is a blogging comedy website which fits him since he did a comedy tour. McAfee played nine seasons in the NFL.

5 2017 Options for Bears QB Jay Cutler

If you haven’t heard by now bears QB Jay Cutler is going to have season ending shoulder surgery. The bears are most likely to trade or cut him if there is a good quarterback available. Cutler has spent the last 8 seasons in Chicago, before that he played for the Denver Broncos. At the age of 33 he may have 3-4 years left in his tank given that he can still throw well after the surgery and if he can stay healthy.

5: Arizona Cardinals 

The Cardinals may not have Carson Palmer come next season if  he decides to retire meaning that they’ll have to rely on Drew Stanton, a drafted QB,sign a Quarterback in free agency, or trade for a QB. It’s more likely that they would sign a QB in free agency. Cutler would be pretty expensive but he could allow a mid round draft pick to develop and learn the playbook. He would be able to excel under Bruce Arians offense with all the weapons that offense has like Malcom Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson.

4: San Francisco 49ers

The 9ers don’t have any good Quarterbacks on their roster and will definitely be looking for a Quarterback after the season is over. Kaepernick will most likely be gone next year or will serve as a back up, Gabbert probably won’t even be on a team meaning that they need a quarterback. Offensively San Francisco doesn’t have many weapons so Cutler will struggle some especially if Chip Kelly is still the head coach.

3: Miami Dolphins

The dolphins have a rather strange QB situation with Ryan Tannehill. Sonwtimes he does great other times he can’t even throw for 100 yards. If Tannehill starts to play how he did earlier in the season then it’s a safe bet that they’ll move on from him.

2: Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jags have Blake Bottles a very talented QB but he often under preforms meaning that if Gus Bradley us fired then Bortles may find himself on the bench. The Jags have a good offense consisting of WR’s Allen Hurns ans Allen Robinson, TE Julius Thomas, and RB’s TJ Yeldon & Chris Ivory. Those weapons would definitely allow Cutler to get out the deep ball and if they could get a running game going then they could be a playoff contender. The only problem would be their O-line.

1: New York Jets

The Jets practically need a new Quarterback. Ryan Fitzpatrick fell off, Geno Smith and Bryce Petty flat out can’t be long term solutions and Christian Hackenberg still needs to develop some. In New York Cutler would be reunited with former teammate WR Brandon Marshall who just so happens to be the Jets #1 receiver, alongside him he would have former Broncos receiver Eric Decker and another former teammate RB Matt Forte. The damage that could be done with Cutler at the helm of their offense would make the jets a playoff contender.

Personally I think the team that bestfits him is the Arizona Cardinals. Weapons like Malcom Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald would show that given the right assessts Cutler isn’t as bad as people think, he would also have the help of a very potent defense that can force turnovers and stop opponents from scoring.

Geno Smith to start for Jets against the Ravens

The Jets finally decided to bench Ryan Fitzpatrick after what was undoubtedly the worst start to a season by a Jets QB in at least 4 years. Unfortunately the man they’re starting this week isn’t much better, and they probably should’ve just picked up a veteran free agent or traded for a QB like Mike Glennon. But what they should’ve done aside Geno Smith isn’t a good QB at all and they could’ve just kept Fitz as the starter instead of benching him.

The Jets have bigger problems they need to fix like the shitty pass defense they have especially considering that the Ravens have a talented offense that has players like Joe Flacco, Steve Smith, Terrance West, Breshaun Perriman, and Mike Wallace. Overall the Jets are gonna take a fat L with a score of 33-13 because their offense and defense simply won’t do well against Baltimore
