Love this time of year. Free Agency begins and the flood-gates open up. It’s a little hard to keep track, so I will fill you in on the biggies (20 years today RIP in Peace) and give a quick couple words on what I think about the signings/trades.
**None of these are official yet, but are rumored to be “Done Deals”**
Danny Woodhead (RB) to the Ravens: Love this move for both parties involved. We all know what Woodheads’ scrapiness brings to the table. He’s one of the best pass catching backs in the league and for a team that totaled out at around 400 total receiving yards from all of their running backs last year, they can use a guy who racked up 755 in 2015. The Ravens came in at 28th in rushing yards last year, and could really use the boost in the backfield.
Desean Jackson (WR) to the Bucs: Hate Desean with a passion, but I can see him meshing well with Jameis and Mike Evans. The Buccaneers were looking for a guy that could make some long plays and Desean averages 17.7 yards per reception. I was at the miracle in the Meadowlands Pt II, and I have seen first person what this squirely fuck can do to a team’s secondary. He has more 50+ yard TD catches than anyone in the league since 2008, and you could expect a few more this year with Famous Jameis’s deep ball.
Kenny Britt (WR) to the
Eagles Browns HAHAHA: Got a nice giggle out of this one. Eagles fans were praising their next messiah in a washed up Kenny Britt and the guy just dekes the shit out of the entire fan base and signs with the Browns. Britt’s got a rap sheet that would make Katt Williams look like a choir boy, so It’s probably better off he doesn’t come anywhere near Philly.
Dwayne Allen (TE) Traded to New England: Allen was sent to New England in exchange for the Patriots swapping their 4th round pick with the Colt’s 6th. Good move considering Martellus Bennett is pretty outspoken about leaving New England for a pay day. Allen’s a great pass blocker and had his best year of his career in 2016, but joins Gronk in being an injury concern. Allen missed 23 games over the last four seasons.
