The Browns made a very Sixers trade taking on Osweiler to land a 2nd rounder. I assume Depodesta had a lot to do with this.

My Jags won the offseason Super Bowl two years in a row!

I legitimately don't get why teams trade with the Patriots. It's not even in the "they're the best team in the league" sense, it's that these trades all seem to end up lopsided in their favor. Like, if the Pats engage you in trade talks, how do you not run in the other direction?

Brandin Cooks for the 32nd pick. Damn.

And 15 spots in the mid rounds! Like if it was Cooks for a 1st and 3rd... ok. But somehow the Pats get a 4th too.

Bringing Berry back was a no-brainer. They're tight with salary cap so they decided Poe was expendable for now and will try to resign him. I think the Chiefs believe his injury history might drive his price down and they can snag him again. They also have Jaye Howard coming back and Chris Davis and could bring in another nose tackle... they'll be just fine.

The surprise was re-signing Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. The Chiefs think that they have the makings of a very good young line, so they're locking up the best parts of it to keep it together for the long term.

We all knew they would release Charles and Foles. They'll draft a versatile RB to replace him and we still have Ware.

The big talk is whether the Chiefs would go after Romo, but that never made any sense to me. Lots of speculation that the Chiefs will grab a QB in the draft. It seems like the perfect draft to get a QB in the last first round or early 2nd round and let them sit behind Smith for a year. We have the extra picks to move up if we need to. Smith's contract is easy to get out of in 2018, so it makes a ton of sense to keep him for '17, draft and develop a QB, and then re-evaluate for '18.

seems like a good deal for the pats.

im sure they will somehow end up with 3 or 4 first round picks by the time the draft comes around though

For the third time in two years, an NFL franchise has relocated. I still love football but I have reservations about committing to a league that hardly commits to its fans

You already had to do that with the Vegas Golden Knights. :wink:
