NFL Quick Takes 2

Welcome to Baller Central!!!! Basketball and Football articles created by Phil and Akeem

Free agency started off with a BANG as the Patriots went on a spending spree and others tried to catch up to fill their team’s needs. Plenty of moves were made and here are some we highlighted.

Pats kickoff free agency with a BANG

Patriots run through the free agency table and acquire many players.

Phil’s Take

WELL NEEDED!!!!! After a rough 7-9 season Bill B pushed all his chips to the middle and signed a lot of players. They even brought back Cam Newton. All that is missing in my opinion is a better WR even though algholor and Bourne give them depth, a QB to give cam some competition hopefully they trade up to grab Trey Lance in the draft, and probably a safety to replace newly retired Patrick Chung.

Akeem’s Take

I'm sure Cam Newton is very happy with all the weapons that have been signed. It'll give him more protection to do what he did when he was in Carolina, move around.


Drew Brees Retires/ Famous Jameis Re-Signs

Phil’s Take

It was only a matter of time. Brees was battered and showing decline it was the right move. Plus he helped him out with salary cap so they can get out of the negatives. He has had a hell of a career but it was time to ride off into the sunset. Next stop for Drew Brees is Canton.

Akeem’s Take

What is there to say about the man that needs no introduction? He's had an awesome career, and will truly be missed in the league. Can't wait to see what happens next year. It'll be interesting to not have him there. Does this mean certain weapons will lose value?

Chiefs Release Fisher and Schwartz gains Thuney and Long

Chiefs lose Fisher and Schwartz but gain Thuney and Long.

Chiefs lose Fisher and Schwartz but gain Thuney and Long.

Phil’s Take

Chiefs started off shaky releasing their O-LiNeman but redeemed themselves by grabbing coveted G Joe Thuney and Kyle Long coming back off of retirement. I like the Thuney pickup but the jury is out on Kyle Long since he has been out of football for a year.

Akeem’s Take

This isn't something I've paid much attention to but it's a good thing. Gives Mahomes the protection he needs.

Fitzmagic to Washington

Fitzmagic signs a 1 year 10 Mill deal with WFT

Fitzmagic signs a 1 year 10 Mill deal with WFT

Phil’s Take

It was a risky move for Washington to grab the gunslinger in Fitzmagic but scary terry and newly acquired Curtis Samuel will have a very much needed upgrade at QB. The only downside to this is he can cost Washington a game down the stretch with his questionable decision making at times.

Akeem’s Take

Again, things I don't care about. But hey, if he is going to a new team, sure. Hopefully he can still bring the magic to washington. They could definitely use it given their qb woes as of late.

Juju Re-Signs with Pitt

Juju Smith Schuster stays in Pitt with a 1 year 8 mill deal.

Phil’s Take

Tik Tok star aka Mr. CORVETTE CORVETTE is back in Pitt. He turned down bigger offers from the Chiefs, Ravens, and Eagles to be back in Pitt. What does Pitt have in mind that made Juju turn down KC?!?!?!?!?!?! It’s only a one year deal so let’s see if juju truly stays in Pitt.

Akeem’s Take

Well duh. Was there another team you guys expected him to go to? But he is a big asset to whatever team he is on. So I'm glad to see he'll be able to continue the amazing work he's done in Pittsburgh this far.

Free agency is still going on as we speak so we will see what other moves get made!!!!!! Next stop NFL DRAFT!!!!
