Sam Darnold to the 49ers, and a Panthers fan on Reddit called the 49ers "Panthers West".

Besides Darnold and McCaffrey, there is another parallel: the 49ers also made a huge trade two years ago to get their QB of the future. Although the Panthers can only dream of being 49ers East  :-P

Bears signed 2 LB, an OL and a DL yesterday. Plus they got a WR and a handful of picks from their trade with Carolina. Should be a markedly better team this year, in a very winnable division.

That’s kind of insulting to the 49ers.

The Cowboys are releasing Zeke. Similar to when they released Amari Cooper, I’m sad to see him go, but I 100% agree with the move. They’ll be able to find somebody in the middle rounds of the draft to fill Zeke’s role for much less money.

I remember thinking in 2016 through 2019 of Zeke being a future HOFer, playing for the Cowboys his entire career. Hard to believe he’s no longer a Cowboy, but that’s the reality of running backs nowadays.

Rodgers to the Jets is seemingly a done deal. When that happens, Dak will be the longest-tenured starting QB in the league. Nuts.

There is nothing like one of your division rivals shooting themselves in the foot in the Super Bowl and then selling off most of their defensive line, except for the player who lost that Super Bowl for them.

Felt like looking up the top 5. Year they joined the team:
Dak Prescott - 2016
Patrick Mahomes - 2017
Kirk Cousins - 2018
Josh Allen - 2018
Lamar Jackson - 2018

Today's the start of a new league year, when all the signings, trades and releases become official.

Upon hearing that Aaron Rodgers is (likely) going to play for the Jets next season, I say good riddance.

Case Keenum returns to Houston as a backup QB, where he played college and debuted for the Texans.  I am hoping that the two most celebrated former Texans legends Andre Johnson and JJ Watt can join the Texans staff in any capacity (perhaps as team consultants or on coaching staff or management staff).

It seems like 95% of Texans fans (myself certainly included) have happily welcomed DeMeco Ryans back to Houston; DeMeco himself said he's glad to return to the city that drafted him.

The last play Zeke played for the Cowboys was at center and he got run completely over!   :-D

Running back is the position with the largest supply in relation to demand. Unless you have an elite guy like Henry, Taylor or Barkley, it doesn't make sense to pay big money for a RB when you can get a guy almost as good a lot cheaper.

I think all of the memes & parody tweets surrounding Rodgers' supposed "free agent wish list" has been my favorite thing about NFL news this week.

As an example:

The Colts have released Matt Ryan just less than a year after trading for him last offseason. The one silver lining is that he will at least get paid $12M this season, but if this is the end of the road for his career, it is an almost impossibly brutal ending. What was supposed to be a perfect pairing between Ryan and the Colts turned into (one of?) the worst in-season train wrecks of all time.

I don't know of anyone who thought it was going to be great, but it was certainly much worse than most expected.

I think if teams are eager to move on from "Franchise QBs" a la Carson Wentz, Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan, etc., then that should tell you something. Voluntarily getting rid of experience at the most important position in all of sports is only done if for a reason.

I think a lot of us are blind to the fact that most of us know nothing about these players outside of game day and an occasional news article. The teams get to see their players almost every single day in a variety of settings and circumstances. They know far more about their players than anyone outside of the organization does.

Carson Wentz hasn't been even close to a Franchise QB for a few years now. Ryan is just old. Wilson I believe can still turn it around with Payton.

Yeah, it feels strange that Green Bay is letting them take Aaron Rodgers. As if getting a 39-year-old QB that's probably past his prime would help them get into the playoffs.

But Philly let him go when he still was.
