UA-59049186-1 NFL Roundup: March 18, 2020 - Good if it Goes

NFL Roundup: March 18, 2020

The two days of legal tampering brought us some huge moves and big names changing homes. NFL.com has a list of the moves made by each team. Here are the highlights.

Obviously, the biggest move made was QB Tom Brady agreeing to terms with the Buccaneers, as you may have seen on Twitter from various folks photoshopping him in a jersey he’ll never actually wear. The deal will pay him around $30 million per year. Reaction to the news on Twitter was split. Some folks thought this move makes the Bucs instant contenders with the future Hall of Famer teaming up with a great group of receivers. Others wondered how Brady, at 43, was going to fit in an offense set up to go deep down the field. Your author is in the latter group. Brady’s sill got plenty left, he’ll have plenty of weapons and solid coaching – they should be fine. I question their ability to make a deep postseason run, but the NFC South race just got a whole lot more interesting and if nothing else, Brady will take care of the ball a lot better than Jameis Winston did and mentor whoever the long-term guy in Tampa is going to be. Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissaro said on Twitter that the belief among teams was that Brady is looking to bring Antonio Brown with him wherever he goes, but Brown’s status with the league is still up in the air.

The Texans traded WR DeAndre Hopkins and a 2020 4th-round pick to Arizona for RB David Johnson, a 2020 2nd-round pick, and a 2021 4th-round pick. I have no idea why. The Texans then filled the hole at receiver by signing Randall Cobb to a 3-year, $27 million deal. I have no idea why.

QB Teddy Bridgewater agreed to terms with Carolina. The Panthers also traded OG Trai Turner to the Chargers for OT Russell Okung.

The Bears agreed to terms with EDGE Robert Quinn and TE Jimmy Graham.
