NFL Free Agency Recap

The NFL otherwise known as the (National Football League) began their free agency period Monday March 16th. The new NFL season began Wednesday March 18th where all deals can become official. So far, the Miami Dolphins have spent the most money out of every team and acquired a top five free agent in cornerback Byron Jones. However, the most questionable move they made was signing former first round draft bust Ereck Flowers and giving him ten million dollars a year. He has bounced around three teams and is struggling on the offensive line.

As a devoted Giants fan I am happy with the signings they have made so far. They have signed James Bradberry, Blake Martinez, and a few other players. The Giants are slowly but surely making the right steps to continue their rebuild as James Bradberry is a great cornerback and Blake Martinez is a stud tackler at the linebacker position. My only worries about Blake Martinez is he is not the best in coverage and his signing along with fellow linebacker and teammate Kyler Fackrell may stop the Giants from drafting versatile playmaking linebacker/safety Isaiah Simmons. The Giants may draft an offensive lineman which is also a major need for the Giants and can give franchise quarterback Daniel Jones and franchise running back Saquon Barkley some much needed protection but I feel like the Giants cannot miss on Simmons talents.

The most surprising move of the offseason so far was debatably Tom Brady leaving the New England Patriots after twenty seasons and signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tom Brady has spent his entire career with the Patriots. He shocked the world when he announced he was leaving the Patriots to go to the Buccaneers.
