The NFL season is quickly approaching and I think we will see some trades before the season begins. There are several unhappy players around the league, some want to be traded, and I think this will happen soon. I think several players will be dealt and when they are I think it would be cool to guess the teams they land on. So let’s have fun.
Desean Jackson – Philadelphia Eagles – The Eagles wide receiver was in the news recently after making some pretty horrible comments towards the Jewish Community. I think he will be dealt not because Howie Roseman and Jeff Lurie are Jewish but because the Eagles are kind of cap-strapped. The Eagles signed Jackson last year at 33 years old and he still has four year remaining on his contract. The Eagles ship him to the Patriots for a 4th round pick. Cam Newton gets a new toy! Also, Desean Jackson ends up teaming up with Jewish wide receiver Julian Edelman, who reached out to him after his comments.
Jamal Adams – New York Jets – The star safety has already said he will only play for the Cowboys, Ravens, Texans, Chiefs, Eagles, or Seahawks and guess what? One of those teams called. Adams is sent to the Seahawks in exchange for a 2021 2nd round pick. The Seahawks give Adams a new contract and land one of the best young safeties in the NFL. The Cowboys make a push, but the Seahawks offer Adams the best deal and Joe Douglas wants to rid himself of the headache.
Desmond King – Los Angeles Chargers – King can do it all, and he ends up landing on a team that is going to use him right. King joins Minkah Fitztpatrick and Joe Haden in the Steelers secondary. The Steelers send a 2021 Third Round Pick to the Chargers in exchange for the sound return man and cover corner. King will come in and start right away opposite of Haden. King will help the Steelers have one of the best defensive back sets in football.
David Njoku – Cleveland Browns – Njoku is a good player but he has struggled staying healthy. The Browns want to send him packing after his latest request to be traded. The team that lands him is the Miami Dolphins. Njoku returns to the Miami area where he played college ball and gives Tua and the Dolphins one of the best young pass catching duos at the tight end position. Mike Gesicki and Njoku are 1 and 2 on the Phins and the Dolphins only end up sending a 5th to land him from the 2021 NFL Draft.
Yannick Ngakoue – Jacksonville Jaguars – Many are hoping that Ngakoue will land on the Eagles, but I have him going in a different direction. Yannick is headed to play for the Minnesota Vikings after the Vikings and newly signed Mike Zimmer send a 1st and 4th to the Jaguars for the young pass rusher. The Vikings tag Ngakoue with one of the most underrated pass rushers in the NFL in Danielle Hunter. The Vikings add another amazing piece to get after quarterbacks.
