In the span of a few hours the New York Giants traded their biggest star while the New York Jets brought in arguably their biggest star in free agency ever. On this episode I break down both moves and see give my thoughts on the Cleveland Browns, New York Giants, and New York Jets going forward after the Odell Beckham Jr. trade and the Le’Veon Bell signing.
On this episode we look at the first domino to fall during the NFL trading deadline with the Oakland Raiders trading Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys for a first round pick. Not only do I give my reaction on the trade and who I felt came out the winner, but I also discuss which team’s are being limited by their quarterback and what the future holds for them.
According to NFL.com the Denver Broncos have traded for Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez sending a 2017 conditional draft pick to Philadelphia. While it still appears that the Broncos are still actively pursuing San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but have at least added depth with the addition on Sanchez whose cap hit for 2015 will be $4.5 Million.
The fifth overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the New York Jets, Sanchez has had an up
and down career. His most famous moment on the field was the infamous “Butt Fumble” when he ran in Brandon Moore’s backside. In his NFL career Sanchez has started in 72 games throwing for over 15,000 yards with 86 touchdowns and 84 interceptions. In those 72 starts Sanchez is 37-35 but has a 4 -2 career playoff record.
While Sanchez may not be the best answer at the quarterback position for the Broncos, he at least provides an option for the moment and could be a reliable backup if the Broncos do add another signal caller.
