It’s free agency time in the NFL, and my message as always to current NFL general managers is buyers beware.
Kevin Huber Authentic Jersey Especially when it comes to the three free-agent quarterbacks who wore Vikings purple last season.
With Minnesota apparently jumping into the Kirk Cousins derby, it’s likely that Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater all will hit the open market March 14. All three players come with question marks, yet they are intriguing based on their past production.
Elite Tom Jackson Jersey Meanwhile, Keenum will attract some good offers coming off a career year in which he went 11-3 as the starter for the NFC North champs. He began the season as Bradford’s $2 million backup but took over after Bradford’s knee injury in the opening game. Keenum played well (22 TD passes, 7 interceptions, 98.3 rating). He also beat the Saints in the divisional playoffs with the last-second TD pass to Diggs. But Keenum and the entire team didn’t play well in the NFC title-game loss to the Eagles.
The Giants are fortunate they can focus more on depth for the defensive line, because their current talent with 2016 free-agent additions Damon Harrison and Olivier Vernon is built well for the transition in fronts.
Linebacker, however, simply needs bodies. Kelvin Sheppard, Devon Kennard, Jonathan Casillas, Keenan Robinson, Mark Herzlich and Akeem Ayers all are Myles Turner Authentic Jersey unrestricted free agents. B.J. Goodson, their returnee in the middle, struggled through an injury-marred 2017 season. Agreeing to get Alec Ogletree in a trade from the Rams to start in the middle is a good start.
Wentz had a passer rating of 110.3 when kept clean in the pocket, throwing 25 touchdowns, which ranked second in the league, despite Wentz missing the final three weeks of the season with a knee injury. Wentz also was phenomenal on third downs, leading the league in big-time throw percentage (12.0 percent) and passer rating (125.0).
Keenum’s leap in performance was almost as impressive as that of Wentz or Goff. He was fantastic all season and enters free agency with the question of whether he can repeat that in 2018 or beyond.
