2018 NFL Transactions

New Orleans Saints: Sign Dez Bryant WR to $1.25-million for 1-year IR Grade

Dez Bryant was a number one target on Dallas for many years. Now he goes to New Orleans on a one-year prove it deal as a complimentary target to Michael Thomas who is one of the leagues best wide receivers. Dez Bryant just tore his ACL and is currently having an MRI. If he gets placed on injured reserve then he will be out for the year.




October 31, 2018


Houston Texans: Trade for Demaryius Thomas WR A+ Grade

Houston is only giving up a 2019 fourth round pick for Demaryius Thomas which is nothing at this point. Houston can cut Thomas to save $14-million against the cap in 2019 if he does not come in and dominate for an injured Will Fuller who landed on injured reserve for the second year in a row after being a 2016 first round pick. Denver still has Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton even without Thomas plus Carlos Henderson can move into the slot so Denver shuld be glad they got something for Thomas.



Philadelphia Eagles: Trade for Golden Tate WR A+ Grade

Golden Tate is in a contract year. He's worth a third round pick easily. He was Detroit's best receiver and number one target. I'm still trying to figure out why Detroit traded him.



Washington Redskins: Trade for HaHa Clinton-Dix SS A+ Grade

Washington gets a safety that completes their defense. I feel like Washington can now push the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC East Division with this one move.



Los Angeles Rams: Trade for Dante Fowler 3-4 ROLB C Grade

The Rams gave up a third and a fifth round pick for a guy who was a backup 4-3 defensive end on Jacksonville. I'm not even sure he's a good scheme fit for the Rams, but he's an upgrade over anything they got. The Rams need him if they want to make a Super Bowl run. With HaHa Clinton-Dix on the Redskins, you can make a case that Washington is the biggest threat to the Los Angeles Rams despite the fact that Green Bay was my preseason pick to make Super Bowl 53.



Baltimore Ravens: Trade for Ty Montgomery RB C- Grade

Baltimore gets a running back for depth. Remember Montgomery was nothing more then a rotational running back on the Green Bay Packers.




August 31, 2018


Los Angeles Rams: Re-Sign Aaron Donald 3-4 RE 6-year $135-million dollar deal A+ Grade

Aaron Donald is the best defensive lineman in the NFl. This contract was long overdue for Donald.




August 29, 2018


Green Bay Packers: Re-Sign Aaron Rodgers QB 4-year $134-million dollar deal A+ Grade

Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL not named Tom Brady. This was an awesome extension by the Green Bay Packers.




Seattle Seahawks: Re-Sign Tyler Lockett WR 3-year $37.8-million dollar deal A+ Grade

Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL not named Tom Brady. This was an awesome extension by the Green Bay Packers.



New Orleans Saints: Trade for Teddy Bridgewater QB A+ Grade

New Orleans gave up a 2019 third round pick to get Bridgewater. New Orleans can groom Bridgewater to be the successor to Drew Brees.



New York Jets: Trade for 2019 third round pick. A+ Grade

New York got a 2019 third round pick from the New Orleans Saints. They can use this pick to build their team around Sam Darnold.




August 27, 2018


New York Giants: Re-Sign Odell Beckham Jr. WR 5-year $90-million dollar deal A- Grade

Odell Beckham deserved to get paid. He's the leagues highest paid receiver now. The only reason this gets an A- grade is because I believe Antonio Brown should be the leagues highest paid receiver.



Cincinnati Bengals: Re-Sign Geno Atkins DT 4-year $65.3-million dollar deal A+ Grade

Cincinnati extended Geno Atkins. This is a smart move by the Bengals. It extends their window of opporutnity to contend in the AFC North.



Cincinnati Bengals: Re-Sign Carlos Dunlap LE 3-year $45-million dollar deal A+ Grade

Cincinnati extended Carlos Dunlap along with Geno Atkins. Dunlap is Cincinnati's best defensive end. With all their talent at defensive end, the Bengals really didn't need to extend Dunlap. At the same time, I understand why they did knowing his impact and presence.




August 23, 2018


Pittsburgh Steelers: Re-Sign Chris Boswell K 4-year $16.7-million dollar deal A- Grade

Chris Boswell is one of the leagues better kickers. I still don't understand paying him or Vince Williams before Le'Veon Bell. Bell is one of the leagues best running backs and this is a slap in the face to Bell to be completely honest.




August 20, 2018


Los Angeles Rams: Re-Sign Rob Havenstein RT 4-year $32.5-million dollar deal F Grade

Rob Havenstein is a great durable run blocker. My issue with this extension is that he's awful in pass protection. Plus, it's a slap in the face to Aaron Donald that Havenstein got paid before him.




August 13, 2018


Chicago Bears: Sign Roquan Smith 3-4 MLB 4-year $18.4-million dollar deal A+ Grade

Roquan Smith finally ended his holdout. This is a huge signing for the Chicago Bears as they finally got their rookie linebacker inked to his rookie deal.




July 24, 2018


Los Angeles Rams: Re-Sign Todd Gurley RB 4-year $60-million dollar deal A Grade

Todd Gurley was an integral part to the Rams offense. I felt like the Rams could pay him next year, but I see why they extended him now. He's such a huge asset to the Los Angeles Rams offensively. I cannot fault the Rams for this at all.



Cleveland Browns: Sign Baker Mayfield QB 4-year $32.68-million dollar deal A- Grade

The Browns won't even start Baker Mayfield this year. I still like this signing for the Browns though. Baker plays with fire and intensity. He was my third best quarterack behind Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen. He's got a better floor and better accuracy then any quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft.




July 22, 2018


New York Giants: Sign Saquon Barkley RB 4-year $31.2-million dollar deal A+ Grade

The Giants signed Saquon Barkley before training camp. Not only did New York get the best player in the draft. They signed him before training camp which is huge since it prevents any potential holdout.




July 17, 2018


Los Angeles Rams: Re-Sign Brandin Cooks WR 5-year $80-million dollar deal C Grade

Cooks was the Rams best receiver. Locking him up before extending Aaron Donald is fiscally irresponsible though. I don't hate this move, but the Rams had better things they could have done so this re-signing gets a C grade from me.




July 3, 2018


San Francisco 49ers: Reuben Foster MLB Suspended two games D Grade

San Francisco is probably going to lose their week 1 game against Minnesota. I picked San Francisco over Detroit, but would not be surprised if this suspension costs the 49ers their season since they get three of their first four games on the road and that's one thing that hurts the 49ers since Foster is their best linebacker when he's healthy. This team can win 7 or 8 games with their schedule, but they may be a year away from making that huge leap and taking over the NFC West.




June 29, 2018


Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston QB Suspended three games D Grade

Jameis Winston got a three game suspension and what's even worse is that Ryan Fitzpatrick opens up the year against three of the top 6 teams from last season including last years Super Bowl winner in week 2. You know this is getting a D grade for a dire as fuck situation when Tony Mario is dropping jokes about trading Winston to Red Lobster for their Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

Z'Darius Smith, 3-4 LOLB, Baltimore Ravens


Jeraud Powers, CB, Baltimore Ravens


Baltimore Ravens 2018 Offseason Outlook: Baltimore has $12,910,273 for 2018 at the moment. The Ravens filled all of their needs through the 2018 NFL Draft and appear to be someone who could emerge as a wild card. Baltimore used the 2017 NFL Draft to reload with more depth defensively and then did the same thing to get more offensive depth in the 2018 NFL Draft. It will be up to Ozzie Newsome's successor to keep this young, promising core, in tact.


They drafted Lamar Jackson in the first round to compliment Joe Flacco. Releasing Flacco in 2019 saves nearly $20-million in cap space allowing them to bring back both Terrell Suggs and C.J. Mosley if Lamar Jackson balls out with those two on defense.

Cleveland Browns 2018 Offseason Outlook: Cleveland only loses 2 key players to Free Agency in 2019. They also have $66.706,015 to spend on players for 2018. Cleveland drafted Baker Mayfield first overall to take over for Tyrod Taylor so Taylor probably will not get re-signed unless he takes the Browns to the playoffs like he did with the Bills last year.

Pittsburgh Steelers 2018 Offseason Outlook: Pittsburgh has $4,423,574 for 2018 at the moment thanks to franchise tagging Le'veon Bell once again. Pittsburgh has five key players that turn Free Agents in 2019, but a strong core back. With the depth they added in the 2018 NFL Draft, I think the Steelers are now the favorite to win the AFC and it pains me to say this.

Houston Texans 2018 Offseason Outlook: Houston has $28,936,726 for 2018 at the moment. Houston will have to make more offensive line upgrades as well as reload the defense next offseason.


Houston will probably re-sign Clowney before the start of the season. I think they will address the offensive line or take the best defensive player on the board in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Indianapolis Colts 2018 Offseason Outlook: Indianapolis has $51,795,056 for 2018 at the moment. They can cut left tackle Anthony Costanzo to save cap space if they need to as well or they can move him to right tackle and draft a left tackle. I felt like they bolstered their offensive line in the 2018 NFL Draft, but ignored other critical positions. I like Costanzo and many Colts fans thought he did well on tape despite giving up 6.5 sacks which was most by a left tackle on all 32 teams who started 16 games so I'm gonna see how Costanzo does this year before I list it as a potential need since they don't need to cut him to save cap space at the moment, but they may if Luck gets injured again.

The Jaguars have a good core of players for the next two years while the 2016 NFL Draft class where they hit big on plays out their rookie contracts. While the Steelers have a one-year window of opportunity in 2018, the Jaguars have a two-year window of opporutnity to win the AFC unless they fail to bring back A.J. Cann next season.

Derrick Morgan, 3-4 LOLB, Tennessee Titans


Tennessee Titans 2018 Offseason Outlook: Tennessee has $33,156,048 for 2018 at the moment. The Titans will have to potentially extend Marcus Mariota plus worry about all of these starters that are set to be Free Agents. If Luke Falk does well enough to win the backup job, don't be shocked if Mariota gets supplanted. It's too early to say if that happens, and Mariota got the Titans a playoff win so he's earned the benefit of the doubt for now.


Putting faith in the Titans 2017 draft picks at wide receiver is risky business. Harold Landry, Tennessee's 2018 second round pick will also have to step up. They can cut Logan Ryan and Jonathan Cyprien to save cap space so it will be interesting to see what the Titans do. Byard who led the NFL in interceptions also enters a contract year in 2019.

Miami Dolphins 2018 Offseason Outlook: Miami has $14,245,460 to spend on Free Agents and the draft in 2018. They can get $13-million more if they cut Ryan Tannehill, but that only happens if he gets injured again. We can all agree this year is a make or break year for Tannehill, but his verdict with the Dolphins is too early to say.


Regardless, Tannehill's backups suck. The right tackle position will need to be addressed if Ju'Wuan James leaves.

They can also save cap space by cutting Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, or Dwayne Allen, but as long as Tom Brady is playing those are his guys period unless someone else in this group steps up. It's probably also time to draft Tom Brady's successor.

The Jets got their quarterback of the future in Sam Darnold in the 2018 NFL Draft after Cleveland ended up taking Baker Mayifeld at 1. The Jets are losing a lot of Free Agents in 2019 when Darnold is expected to take over for Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown at pretty much every offensive position, plus this team could use offensive tackle upgrades so if Darnold does not take off until 2020 that's why.

Denver Broncos 2018 Offseason Outlook: Denver has $7,877,869 to spend on Free Agents in 2018. They will probably save this money and then try to re-sign their offensive linemen in 2019. If quarterback Case Keenum underperforms Denver can cut him. They can also cut both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.


Denver may also try to re-sign Peko. This team could win 6-9 games in the AFC West and may even surprise people by winning the West.

If Patrick Mahomes can surprise people in some games that the Chiefs are not supposed to win, then the Chiefs could easily repeat as Division Champions, but if he doesn't and the defense struggles this will be a long year for the Chiefs.

The Los Angeles Chargers have most of the pieces to make a huge splash in this division if everyone is healthy. I see a 9-7 wild card team that gets the six seed at the very worst. If they don't take the AFC West this season expect the front 7 to be revamped in a big way.

Oakland Raiders 2018 Offseason Recap: The Oakland Raiders will have $5,722,007 in cap space for 2018. Oakland filled a lot of short-term needs which is why they may end up winning a very close very competitive AFC West division. I think they will struggle at first, but get hot at the end, and the reason I have them winning the AFC West is cause I have them winning home games against teams like the Los Angeles Rams and the Pittsburgh Steelers. If the Raiders fail to do this they will miss the playoffs once again in 2018.

The Packers want to re-sign Aaron Rodgers and lock him up so they can get more cap space for this season, but less cap space starting in 2019. Besides that the other top player they will probably look to bring back is Clay Matthews. This is probably Green Bay's last year to potentially do something special by helping Aaron Rodgers get a second Super Bowl with their window of opporutnity closing after this season.

Minnesota Vikings 2018 Offseason Outlook: Minnesota has $17,792,409 to spend in 2018 after signing Kirk Cousins in Free Agency, extending Danielle Hunter at 4-3 left end, and extending middle linebacker Eric Kendricks. Minnesota has enough to extend both Diggs and Barr, but not both. I feel like Minnesota will try to wait until the right time to extend both players. If the Vikings can pull that off they will rule the NFC North for years to come.

Carolina Panthers 2018 Offseason Outlook: Carolina will have $2,474,862 in cap space. They hardly have any cap space and yet still have a lot of holes. I also thought they wasted their first round pick on D.J. Moore as I had him as my sixth best receiver in the 2018 NFL Draft. This team still lacks a number one target and just drafted Moore to replace their number two target in Funchess. A successor to Greg Olseon would also help. Hopefully Carolina's new owner, can bring a Super Bowl to Carolina at some point, because their fans deserve it, but this is a team that feels like they are set for a rebuild.

In fact outside of tight end, defensive tackle, and a cornerback next to Lattimore you can argue all the pieces to contend in the NFC over the next two seasons are there.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2018 Offseason Outlook: Tampa Bay has $11,566,075 for 2018 at the moment. The scary thing is Tampa Bay can release other players like quarterback Jameis Winston, wide receiver DeSean Jackson, right tackle Demar Dotson, right end Vinny Curry, left end Jason Pierre-Paul, and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy could all be salary cap options for Tampa Bay if they want to increase cap room for 2019. I think Ronald Jones lacks the pass protection and vision to be a three down back, and unless he balls out with this shitty OL this Tampa Bay rebuild may be too much for Jameis Winston to overcome with his three game suspension.

Dallas Cowboys 2018 Offseason Outlook: Dallas has $7,338,937 to spend on Free Agents. I'm not sure if this number is accurate though since Travis Frederick and Tyron Smith took pay cuts for 2017. Doug Free retired at right tackle and I'm not sure Chaz Green is ready to replace him.


Dallas should have two goals. Getting under the Salary cap and drafting defensive players that can help Dak Prescott win a championship. A lot of people including myself believe Dallas is an early favorite for Super Bowl 52. The Cowboys may be, but right now getting the Salary Cap under control is the top priority.


Dallas brought in Byron Bell, but he sucked at right tackle. Replacing Doug Free with Chaz Green and Byron Bell is bound to backfire.

Landon Collins, FS, New York Giants


New York Giants 2018 Offseason Outlook: New York has a lot of needs and only $7,046,013 in cap space for 2018. I wasn't a fan of the Pat Shurmur hiring, but Dave Gettleman had an awesome first draft as the New York Giants GM. The talent to win 8 games this season is there. Getting Eli Manning some weapons and upgading the secondary have to be priorities moving forward.

Ronald Darby, CB, Philadelphia Eagles


Philadelphia Eagles 2018 Offseason Outlook: Philadelphia has $4,033,320 for 2018 at the moment. They lost offensive coordinator Frank Reich despite winning Super Bowl 52. No NFL team has ever repeated after losing their one of their coordinators to a head coaching gig in the modern era.


Philadelphia needs a successor to Jason Peters and they may need to reload at a few positions defensively. Overall this is a fairly deep Eagles team and even if they don't repeat, they should win a second Super Bowl at some point down the road.

Washington Redskins 2019 Free Agents


Jameson Crowder, WR, Washington Redskins


Shawn Lauvao, LG, Washington Redskins


Arie Kouandjio, LG, Washington Redskins


Tony Bergstrom, C, Washington Redskins


Washington Redskins 2018 Offseason Outlook: Washington has $12,249,022 for 2018 at the moment. Washington has a lot of components in place, but they ignored safety during the 2018 NFL Draft while downgrading at the quarterback position which is why I feel hesistant about Washington even though they have a very good front 7 that will keep them in close games.

Arizona Cardinals 2019 Free Agents

J.J. Nelson, WR, Arizona Cardinals


Deonne Bucannon, ROLB, Arizona Cardinals


Arizona Cardinals 2018 Offseason Outlook: Arizona has $13,352,898 for 2018 at the moment. They have a lot of key players entering contract years and can release players like quarterback, Sam Bradford, left tackle D.J. Humphries, and defensive tackle Corey Peters to increase cap space for 2019. Keeping this core around is paramount if the Cardinals 2018 first round pick Josh Rosen plans on succeeding in the NFL long-term.

Sam Shields, CB, Los Angeles Rams


Lamarcus Joyner, FS, Los Angeles Rams


Los Angeles Rams 2018 Offseason Recap: Los Angeles has $3,803,225 for 2018 at the moment. They will have a lot of cap space perhaps up to 70 million for 2019 when they need to place a fifth year tender on Jared Goff and extend running back Todd Gurley. The Rams went all in to win Super Bowl 53 with their blockbuster Free Agency period and Rams fans are hoping to feel the same magic when the Rams won Super Bowl 34 as the St. Louis Rams out in Hollywood.

San Francisco 49ers 2019 Free Agents


Jeremiah Attaochu, LOLB, San Francisco 49ers


Eli Harold, LOLB, San Francisco 49ers


Jimmie Ward, FS, San Francisco 49ers


San Francisco 49ers 2018 Offseason Recap: San Francisco has $36,253,897 for 2018 at the moment. The 49ers finally got their quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo. They also drafted a very good right tackle in Mike McGlinchey who could eventually succeed veteran left tackle Joe Staley as the teams blindside down the road. This team has players coming back on both sides of the ball and really only needs a few upgrades and they will have at least $29-million to spend in 2019 so the 49ers are in a very stable direction thanks to John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan.


Back in 2017, I said the 49ers would need at least three years of excellent drafting to be competitive again. They finally found their quarterback and have had two very solid drafts so they finally have enough pieces to go 8-8 and should unseat Jared Goff by 2019 if they can keep their core together.

Brandon Marshall, WR, Seattle Seahawks

K.J. Wright, ROLB, Seattle Seahawks


Earl Thomas, FS, Seattle Seahawks


Seattle Seahawks 2018 Offseason Outlook: Seattle has $11,120,944 for 2018 at the moment. Seattle managed to cut Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett, and Richard Sherman in one offseason. Strong safety Kam Chancellor may never play another down in the NFL again and free safety Earl Thomas wants out of Seattle as he enters a contract year just like outside linebacker K.J. Wright. I hate to say, it Seattle fans, but your defense is about to collapse as hard as the Roman Empire, plus this offensive line sucks compared to the one Russell Wilson had in his two Super Bowls.
