If you haven’t heard already, the New Orleans Saints have secured themselves as playoff contenders for the next few years by giving QB Drew Brees a new deal. The contract is reportedly the highest average yearly salary in NFL history, with $40 million guaranteed this upcoming season. In return, the Saints get a top two QB for at least another 5 years. Although the overall response is positive, some people feel the Saints lost out on this deal. While I do think that it took way too long for the two sides to agree on a contract, I don’t think the Saints gave Brees too much. Let’s take a look at the deal: (more…)

It’s that time of year again. It’s a day that marks the realization of a dream for many young talented men, while allowing the fans, players, and many team officials to have a glimpse of the league’s future. Without further ado, I give you the NFL Draft. This year, the class is deep in many positions, most notably offensive linemen and WR. With star players such as Andrew Luck and RG III, expect this to be one for the ages.
The top 10 teams all have huge holes and needs in their roster. On April 26th, each of those teams has a chance to transform from laughing stocks to possibly contenders (or at least a tough matchup) with their first round pick alone. The difficult question is who to choose. Often times, many stars are overlooked by other players with immense potential. Add to the fact that some players might not pan out in the NFL, and it’s a tough day for executives all around the league. That is why I, Shrederdude63, will be breaking down who I think should be taken by each team. They may not all be right, but I pick based on what I think they should do with that pick (For example, if I think the Colts should take a WR in the first round, I will pick him instead of a QB, regardless of the fact that they will obviously take a QB). It will take a lot of explaining to do with each pick, so I have divided the round into three sections: First 10, 11-20, 21-32. I may or may not post the rest of the draft, depending on my schedule and how I feel about my picks. You guys know I’m a perfectionist, so we’ll see. I think I’ve kept you guys waiting enough, so let’s get to it: (more…)
