Baltimore Ravens Trading Joe Flacco to Denver Broncos for a Fourth Round Pick

Although not official until the new NFL season begins on March 13, reports from ESPN's Adam Schefter and The MMQB's Albert Breer indicate the Baltimore Ravens will be sending Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos in exchange for a fourth-round pick in this year's NFL Draft. With the move, the Broncos are expected to shop Case Keenum but given his high salary, it's far more likely the team releases him.

 

Jay Glazer Makes Bold Prediction that New York Giants Will Trade Odell Beckham Jr. This Offseason

Jay Glazer believes the New York Giants will move their star wideout this offseason. He made the bold prediction while answering mailbag questions for The Athletic. Giants GM Dave Gettleman is the one who signed OBJ to a long-term deal less than a year ago and has been steadfast in denying any rumors of Beckham going anywhere. Still, OBJ's off-the-field attitude and criticism of the team has rubbed coaches the wrong way.

Report: Pittsburgh Steelers Unwilling to Trade Antonio Brown to the New England Patriots or AFC North Teams

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Steelers will not move Antonio Brown to the New England Patriots or any of the AFC North teams. It would make a lot of sense considering the Patriots are perennial AFC contenders and helping a division rival would be unwise for the Steelers. There has been chatter of the Patriots looking to upgrade their WR corps and Brown would make a lot of sense, but AB in a Patriots uniform is a long, long shot.

 

 

Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury Quells Rumors of Drafting Kyler Murray 

Despite constant talk of the Arizona Cardinals possibly drafting Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray, the organization is publically backing Josh Rosen at every opportunity. Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic provided a quote from Kingsbury saying "Josh is our guy." Publically, the Cardinals have done their best to squash any talk of them taking Murray with the top pick but it will surely be a continued storyline up until the NFL Draft.

New England Patriots QB Brian Hoyer's Amazon and ESPN+ Subscriptions helped the New England Patriots win Super Bowl 53

The New England Patriots received help in the most unconventional of ways to beat the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53. Hoyer told The MMQB's Albert Breer how his streaming subscriptions and familiarity with Sean McVay's offense helped the Patriots hoist the Lombardi Trophy.

Hoyer began his career in New England, but he got his first shot as a starter in Cleveland. In 2014, his second year there, he started 11 games for coordinator Kyle Shanahan, then played for Shanahan again in San Francisco in '17. Rams coach Sean McVay coached tight ends for Mike and Kyle Shanahan in Washington from 2010-13, which led Hoyer to believe he'd have some institutional knowledge of McVay's offense.
Before the Super Bowl, he watched an episode of Peyton Manning's Detail series on ESPN-Plus on Goff, and it hit him right away- the offense is the same. Looking at the Rams tape confirmed it. … Then, Hoyer went back to Amazon's All or Nothing series on the Rams; it was about the 2016 season but had footage of OTAs from McVay's first spring there. Hoyer recognized the language.
