Let’s track some of the NFL free agency rumors. The free agency period doesn’t start until March 9 but there’s stuff going on before that. The Chiefs, for example, signed Eric Berry and cut Jamaal Charles. Other teams are preparing to be under the $167 million salary cap by March 9, which means cutting veterans making a lot of money. The other part of this is trade talks. There’s already trade rumors going on out there and we will see some potential trades coming up.
Let’s track the news...
Jets Releasing Brandon Marshall https://t.co/ugduxQK4de— Gang Green Nation (@GangGreenNation) March 3, 2017
Brandon Marshall is still a good player. He reportedly wants to win a championship so he could be eyeing a contender. I mean, sure I’d take Brandon Marshall but I’m not sure he really fits with the Chiefs (either on the field or financially).
Chiefs GM will "fight like the dickens" to get Dontari Poe back https://t.co/GXXVgaNFT9— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) March 2, 2017
The Chiefs will try to keep him but I’m not sure how they would fit him under the cap. We’ll see.
Saints WR Brandin Cooks is the object of trade talks with the Titans and Eagles identified as two interested suitors, per league sources.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 2, 2017
They’ve talked about Cooks being a trade candidate for almost a year it seems. He is a very, very fast receiver who is still on his rookie deal so the Saints would trade him to get picks in return before they have to pay him, I guess.
One backup QB drawing interest on the trade market: #Eagles QB Chase Daniel. As teams try to improve there, Daniel is one to watch.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 2, 2017
Old friend alert. Chase Daniel signed with the Eagles last year. He’s the backup there. I hope someone gives him a shot to start.
