The NFL is going crazy with franchise tags, trades, free agency to distract us from the horror and panic of COVID-19. Thank God. Today on the show TC and NFL Editor Matt Johnson provide instant reaction to the biggest moves early in the NFL free agent season.
NFL Quarterback Deals
The Atlanta Falcons cut DeVonta Freeman. The guys provide opinions how it affects Matt Ryan and Julio Jones, and what happens for the Falcons in 2020. Next up is the news on the Dallas Cowboys locking up Dak Prescott and the possibility of losing Amari Cooper to the Philadelphia Eagles of all teams. Cincinnati keeps their guy in A.J. Green, which hasn’t gone over well with the star wide receiver.
The Minnesota Vikings surprised many by franchise tagging safety Anthony Harris. Now the Vikings have two high-priced superstar safeties in Harris and Harrison Smith – will they be trading one of them? In addition, the Vikings signed quarterback Kirk Cousins to a two-year extension as free agency started. Finally, the Chiefs made sure superstar defensive lineman Chris Jones is staying in Kansas City by applying the franchise tag to him. Unfortunately, his days may be limited with Patrick Mahomes II’s big payday on the way very soon.
