Odds to Win 2020 Super Bowl
It is safe to start believing all of the trade rumors over the past month. Sports portals on the internet and twitter have gone crazy the past hour reporting trades that have been agreed on or are shortly to be announced. The swap that is riding a Twitter wave is the Giants wide out Odell Beckham to the Browns.
Odell Beckam to Browns
The Giants sent Beckham to the Browns in exchange for two draft picks (a first-rounder and third-rounder) along with safety Jabrill Peppers.
For those that are active on Twitter the news and comments have informed most NFL fanatics of the latest news and fan feelings. Comments such as “Wait, what just happened” to “John Dorsey is a genius”. One Twitter reply even suggested that there are consequences to one’s actions. “I hope Dave Gettleman gets fired in the next three hours.”
After the Browns acquired star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in a trade with the New York Giants, Cleveland general manager John Dorsey and agent Drew Rosenhaus mutually agreed to not follow through on a verbal agreement with wide receiver Breshad Perriman, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen. The report states that Perriman now will sign a one-year, $4 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Dee Ford to be a Niner
The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to trade rush end Dee Ford to the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners are expected to give Ford a multiyear deal in the range of five years and $87.5 million. San Francisco will send a 2020 second-round pick to Kansas City, a source confirmed. The deal can’t become official until the new league year begins Wednesday.
In addition former Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray has agreed to sign a four-year, $14.4 million deal with the New Orleans Saints.
Also veteran and former Miami Dolphins’ defensive end Cameron Wake told ESPN that he will sign a three-year, $23 million deal that includes $10 million guaranteed with the Tennessee Titans.
NFL Trades become official at midnight tonight.
The National Football League craziness has just begun. Hang on and enjoy the ride.
