Everywhere there is news in this busy world of football that generates a lot of money and stirs passions, let’s take a look at these important movements that are taking place, and that will continue to increase in the days of this year that has just begun.
The most notable events in NFL football have had three protagonists at the beginning of the year, outside receiver Antonio Brown, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Bruce Arians, coach of the Buccaneers, who were involved in a situation that left the 33-year-old troubled player out of the reigning Super Bowl champion.
Although it seems like the end of Brown’s career, there are rumors of up to four teams interested in the services of the receiver, among them are the Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, and Washington Football Team, the speculations are based on the lack of quality receivers in those teams, where a player of Brown’s talent and stature could solve the limitations they have.
In other NFL football movements, it has been confirmed that Washington Football Team secured until 2024 the California offensive tackle Charles Leno, a transaction that was agreed at 37.5 Million Dollars.
The end of the regular season is bringing with it many movements in the quarterbacks of some teams, as has been evident in the Chicago Bears, where the Georgian, Justin Fields, has been named as the starting quarterback of the team by coach Matt Nagy.
And unsurprisingly, COVID-19 is wreaking havoc as we enter Week 18 of the season, and has caused moves that have necessarily involved departures for several teams, including some with postseason eligibility, such as the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have lost cornerback Joe Haden to COVID-19, for whom the season will be over if the Steelers do not advance to the Playoffs.
Other players who will not participate in the last game of the season due to COVID-19 are Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon, who tested positive for the coronavirus, meaning he will not play in the game against the Cleveland Browns. Joe has 1,205 RYDS, second in this statistic in the entire NFL, and the Bengals also have lost Texans cornerback William Jackson III, defensive tackle B. J. Hill and guard William Jackson III to the coronavirus. J. Hill, and guard Quinton Spain, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Ambry Thomas, and Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Al Woods.
