jj watt signs with cardinals
Amidst several rumors, JJ Watt has finally found his new home. The Arizona Cardinals signed him to a two-year deal, worth $31 million, with $23 million guaranteed. And he made sure to report the deal himself.
Watt reunites with former Houston Texans teammate DeAndre Hopkins and former defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. After being linked to the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills (which was my personal pick), and the Green Bay Packers, he chooses neither of them, with the Cardinals being the dark horse.
And the Cardinals play the Texans in 2021. Of course they do.
Joe Lombardi excited about expanding Justin herbert's skillset
One of the best stories of the 2020 NFL season was the arrival of Los Angeles Chargers rookie quarterback Justin Herbert. The Rookie of the Year winner was thrown to the wolves by accident after a self-inflicted injury of then-starter Tyrod Taylor and shocked the entire NFL world with how well he adjusted to life as a starter. Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi had nothing but good things to say about Herbert and plans to expand his skillset heading into his sophomore season.
washington expected to move on from alex smith
The Washington Football Team is set to release quarterback Alex Smith soon, according to NFL Network.
As the winner of this year's Comeback Player of the Year Award, Smith defied all odds after returning from a devastating leg injury, almost losing his leg and life. No one is taking that away from him. However, there's also no denying that we all watched through our fingers when he took the field this season, hoping everyone just stayed the hell away and he stayed upright.
An intriguing spot for Smith, should he choose to continue playing, is the Jacksonville Jaguars. Smith could reunite with head coach Urban Meyer and serve as a mentor for probable first pick Trevor Lawrence.
