The New York Jets have become the biggest headline in the National Football League after last Wednesday when, less than a month after the draft, they fired their General Manager Mike Maccagnan. Along with him they also fired Vice President of Player Personnel Brian Heimerdinger, who was Maccagnan’s second in command and potential successor. The Jets then placed new head coach Adam Gase as the interim GM.

We’re over a month into the new season, and there are still players seeking employment, including Dallas Keuchel.
Two weeks from today we will have two major events going on, day two of the NFL draft and Marvel Endgame. The importance of those is up for debate. What is not up for debate is that the New York Jets draft will be determined on day two of the draft.
The Antonio Brown saga is finally over. After enduring through months of complaining from Brown, as well as a fake news report from Ian Rapoport, the Steelers have finally rid themselves of the locker room cancer.

Le’Veon Bell will be a hot name going into free agency as he held out for the 2018-19 NFL Season preserving his body for the upcoming season. He is expecting $17 Million this season and could have a monster season back with a new team. It will most likely not be the Pittsburgh Steelers as the relationship has soured and the Steelers have clearly shown they are willing to move on from him by starting James Conner and letting Bell sit on the bench while not giving him a new contract.
