NFL Teams Making Move as the Trading Season Begins

The NFL has recently seen many roster moves and some huge deals as the new league year began on Wednesday. Here’s some of the big news in the league this week.

Wilson Traded to Broncos

The Seattle Seahawks have recently agreed to send their nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos. However, the blockbuster trade cost the Broncos a lot as they will give Seattle two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a fifth-round pick, TE Noah Fant, DE Shelby Harris, and QB Drew Lock. The Seahawks will also send a fourth-round selection to the Broncos in 2022.

Wilson had to waive a no-trade clause to complete the deal, which was one of the biggest trades in the history of the NFL. The 33-year old quarterback was with the Seahawks for ten seasons and was the starter when the team won Super Bowl XLVIII 43-8 against the Broncos. The trade talks have been ongoing for weeks as Wilson was the main target of the Broncos this offseason.  

Adams Signs With Raiders    

Davante Adams was traded from the Green Bay Packers on Thursday to the Las Vegas Raiders for two draft picks, including a first-rounder in 2022. Adams will sign a new five-year, $141.25 million deal as part of the trade. Over the past five years, Adams has been the league’s best receiver with 6,195 yards and 57 touchdowns.

The Packers recently placed a franchise tag on the wide receiver after they were unable to reach a deal for a long-term contract. He then informed the team this week that he would not play under the tag, which forced them to either trade him or take the risk of him sitting out for the season. 

Browns Say They Won’t Trade Mayfield

After trying to complete a trade for the Texans’ Deshaun Watson, the Browns plan to keep Mayfield as their starting quarterback, but Baker has other ideas. He has requested a trade and believes he and the team would be better off going their separate ways. However, there are reports that the Browns informed his agent that they would not grant his request. 

Once the team realized they weren’t going to acquire Watson, they may now believe there is no deal available that would be an upgrade at the position. Mayfield has one year left on his contract that will pay him $18.8 million, and there may not be another team willing to take on his salary in a trade. Unfortunately, it looks like Mayfield and the Browns will be together for one more year.

Steelers Sign Trubisky

On the first day of the NFL’s new year, the Pittsburgh Steelers have signed former Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky on a two-year, $14 million deal, which could be worth as much as $27 million with incentives. Only $5.25 million is guaranteed under the new agreement. 

Trubisky was the top quarterback in this free-agent class and said Pittsburgh was where he wanted to be in 2022. He will have some big shoes to fill in his first season in the Steel City.

Trubisky begins a new era for the Steelers after the retirement of Ben Roethlisberger after 18 years with the franchise. Big Ben finished his career with 12 playoff appearances, eight division titles, three AFC Championships, and two Super Bowl victories.
