Watkins can be the same type of complementary player in KC. The Chiefs already had a loaded offense with running back Kareem Hunt, deep threat Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce. Now, they add a bona fide No. 1 receiver. Second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes assumes the starting job this season, and he’ll have one impressive cast of characters to work with.
The Phillies’ ability to make a late, somewhat surprising strike on Arrieta reflected the state of the market and some concerns over Arrieta’s 2017 numbers and long-term durability.
Teams obviously can have positive or negative cultures, but I’m skeptical the Dolphins are going to turn it around by spending $8 million per year on a decent third wideout.
The former first-round pick was particularly disappointing in 2017 as the rest of the Rams’ offense flourished, catching just 13 passes for 47 yards while rushing for 270 yards on 59 attempts. If his 2018 production is similar, the restructured contract will essentially cost the same as if the Rams had cut Austin.
Hudson was in Minneapolis for the Super Bowl last month but watched the game in his hotel room with his little sister.
Cousins is the biggest name on the quarterback market this offseason. The 49ers just shelled out $137.5 million over five years to make Jimmy Garoppolo the highest-paid quarterback in NFL history. Now, Cousins will make more than the $27.5 million per year Garoppolo got.
Earlier this offseason, a report by Peter Schrager suggested that Cousins would seek a shorter deal with more guaranteed money. The idea is to get three to four years of mostly guaranteed money, so he’s able to hit the market again when the price for quarterbacks ultimately goes up again which is what ended up happening.
The Cardinals’ cap situation will make it difficult for them to be serious players in the Cousins sweepstakes. But Carson Palmer retired, and they’ve got no other quarterbacks on the roster.
St. Louis got goals from four players, two days after seven Blues scored in a 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings.
