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.
The #Broncos will now shop QB Case Keenum, who is guaranteed $7M in 2019, I’m told. If they can’t, it’s either a massive paycut or a straight up release. He’d be a top backup.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 13, 2019
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.
They want him but cant have him. Steelers wont deal him to NE, BAL, CLE or CIN. Kinda like how Belichick wouldnt deal Jimmy G to CLE— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) February 13, 2019
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
