Chiefs Trading Talented, Hot Headed CB Marcus Peters To The Rams. Is This The Right Move?

It has been a busy NFL offseason so far, with every team making moves in preparation for the draft at the end of this month. Some moves fill a minor hole or fix a small problem, but some signings and trades have the potential to be franchise-altering decisions.

This article will highlight the best move each of the 32 teams has made so far this offseason.

Arizona Cardinals — Signing G

Justin Pugh :

The Cardinals got themselves a versatile lineman in Pugh, who started at both guard and tackle (on the left and right) for the Giants over the past five seasons. He is a former first-round draft pick who will spend his prime years in Arizona, if he’s able to stay healthy.

Atlanta Falcons — Signed G

Brandon Fusco :

It has been a quiet offseason in Atlanta. One impact move they did make was the bringing in Fusco, who has started every game in which he has appeared for the 49ers and Vikings over the past six seasons (80 games). He will start for the Falcons next.

Baltimore Ravens — Signing WR

Michael Crabtree :

The Ravens let their No. 1 and No. 2 receivers from last season,

Jeremy Maclin and

Mike Wallace , walk in free agency and picked up a more consistent veteran in Crabtree. If

Joe Flacco can’t make it work with him in 2018, it may spell the end of an era in Baltimore.

Buffalo Bills — Trading up to Pick No. 12: Right now, the acquisition of defensive tackle

Star Lotulelei looks like Buffalo’s best offseason move, but they don’t seem to be done. After trading with the Bengals to move up to the 12th pick in this year’s draft, look for them to possibly use that pick to move up even further in the pecking order.

Carolina Panthers — Signing DT

Dontari Poe :

The Panthers not only picked up a two-time Pro Bowler in Poe, they also got a former division rival. He should have plenty of motivation to ball out in Carolina, with personal weight incentives and the opportunity to make a new name for himself in the NFC South.

Chicago Bears — Signing WR

Allen Robinson :

The Bears needed a No. 1 receiver for up-and-coming quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, and they found someone who can potentially fill that roll in Robinson. He is coming off a serious knee injury but can be an explosive weapon when healthy and on his game, as evidenced by his 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015.

Cincinnati Bengals — Trading for OT

Cordy Glenn :

Lack of a franchise left tackle totally derailed

Andy Dalton and the Bengals on offense last season. Cincinnati targeted this deficiency directly when they swung a trade for Glenn, who is a former second-round pick with 77 games worth of starting experience from his time with the Bills.

Cleveland Browns — Trading for QB

Tyrod Taylor :

The Browns cannot seem to find a solution at the quarterback position. At the very least, Taylor provides them with a competent starter until they find a young passer they like. If that player is selected with either the first or fourth pick in this year’s draft, Cleveland can rest easy knowing that a veteran signal-caller is on the roster to show him the way.

Dallas Cowboys — Signing WR

Allen Hurns :

Hurns doesn’t exactly relieve the Cowboys of their

Dez Bryant issue, but the former 1,000-yard receiver does provide them with another set of hands for fledgling quarterback

Dak Prescott . If Prescott is to succeed as the starter in Dallas, he’s going to need all the help he can get.

Denver Broncos — Trading for S

Su'a Cravens :

That dominant defense which brought Denver a Super Bowl just a few seasons ago needed an upgrade this offseason and found one in Cravens. Although he sat out all of last season, the former second-round pick is only 22 years old and was a difference-maker for the Redskins in 2016.

Detroit Lions — Signing LB

Devon Kennard :

Detroit hasn’t made any moves that turned heads, but the acquisition of Kennard was an under-the-radar pickup that deserves some praise. The 26-year-old linebacker is a fierce run defender who played an underrated role in the Giants’ dominant defense from 2016.

Green Bay Packers — Signing TE

Jimmy Graham :

Aaron Rodgers was already the NFL’s single greatest playmaker at the quarterback position, and now the Packers have gifted him a 6-foot-7, 265-pound tight end in Graham. These two have the potential to turn Green Bay’s offense into an absolutely unstoppable force in 2018.

Houston Texans — Signing CB

Aaron Colvin :

Last offseason, the Texans lost a talented cornerback in A.J. Bouye to the Jaguars. This year, they stole one back in Colvin. The 26-year-old defensive back is stellar in the slot and will boost a Houston defense that took a step back without Bouye in 2017.

Indianapolis Colts — Trading back from Pick No. 3: The third pick in this year’s draft will likely be used to select a quarterback, now that the Jets own it. The Colts still have faith in

Andrew Luck as their starter, so moving out of that spot made sense. Indianapolis can now rebuild around Luck with the sixth-overall pick, as well as the three second-round picks from New York (two this year, one next).

Jacksonville Jaguars — Signing G

Andrew Norwell :

Since the

Tom Coughlin takeover, the Jaguars have shown a commitment to building in the trenches on both sides of the ball. This continued during the 2018 offseason, when Jacksonville brought in arguably the best offensive lineman on the open market in Norwell.

Kansas City Chiefs — Trading for CB

Kendall Fuller :

Although it cost them a veteran quarterback, the Chiefs picked up a talent they really needed when they landed Fuller in a blockbuster trade with the Redskins. Besides, Kansas City had been preparing to move on from Alex Smith ever since the selection of Patrick Mahomes with the 10th-overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Los Angeles Chargers — Signing C

Mike Pouncey :

The Chargers quietly improved their offensive line with the acquisition of a new anchor in Pouncey. The three-time Pro Bowler started all 93 of the games in which he appeared for the Dolphins, and some of his best days may still be ahead of him at only 28 years old upon his arrival in L.A.

Los Angeles Rams — Trading for CB

Marcus Peters :

Peters comes with some character concerns, but the Rams only had to give up a fourth-rounder in this year’s draft and a second-rounder in next year’s draft to get him. That is a relatively cheap price to pay for a playmaker who has defended 55 passes and created two dozen turnovers in his first three years.

Miami Dolphins — Signing RB

Frank Gore :

Gore is going on 35 years old, but he fell only 39 yards shy of 1,000 for the Colts last season. The veteran back will play inspired in his return to his hometown and likely outperform the terms of his contract (1 year, $1.1 million); that’s more than can be said about

Albert Wilson , who signed for $8 million/year.

Minnesota Vikings — Signing QB

Kirk Cousins :

The Vikings were forced to break the bank for Cousins, but that’s the price a team must pay to bring in a potential franchise quarterback via free agency. If the gamble pays off and Minnesota makes it to the Super Bowl, the former fourth-round draft pick will be well worth the hefty price tag.

New England Patriots — Trading for an additional 1st-round pick: It is a little odd to see the Patriots picking on Day 1 of the draft, considering the fact that they haven’t had a first-round pick since 2015. It’s even weirder to see them with two picks in the first round. The last time this happened (2012), New England selected a pair of Pro Bowlers in Chandler Jones and Dont’a Hightower.

New Orleans Saints — Re-signing QB

Drew Brees :

The top priority for the Saints this offseason was to keep Brees in New Orleans. They did that by signing him to a two-year contract extension, which pays out considerably less than what he probably would have been offered on the open market ($25 million/year).

New York Giants — Trading for LB

Alec Ogletree :

The Giants went searching for a difference-maker on defense and found one in Ogletree. The former first-round pick was a solid starter for the Rams and comes to New York in his prime at 26 years old, giving the franchise a valuable cornerstone for years to come.

New York Jets — Signing CB

Trumaine Johnson :

The Jets made multiple splashy moves this offseason, but the best one was landing Johnson on a five-year mega-deal. In the 27-year-old cornerback, New York now has a confident contributor with a history of betting on himself and winning.

Oakland Raiders — Signing LB

Tahir Whitehead :

In his first year back with the Raiders, head coach

Jon Gruden has made a lot of moves but not many that have turned heads. The acquisition of wide receiver

Jordy Nelson was certainly Oakland’s splashiest signing, but Whitehead is younger, cheaper and will probably make a bigger impact.

Philadelphia Eagles — Re-signing LB

Nigel Bradham :

The Eagles had multiple members of their Super Bowl-winning defense plucked up in free agency, but Bradham was one they were able to keep. This was an important move for the team’s future, as the 28-year-old linebacker has started every game in which he has appeared since arriving in Philadelphia in 2017.

Pittsburgh Steelers — Signing S

Morgan Burnett :

Burnett comes to Pittsburgh with a ton of experience for a 29-year-old safety. He was a rookie on the Packers team that beat the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV and has been a competent starter ever since. His versatility and leadership will be his most valuable assets with his new team.

San Francisco 49ers — Signing CB

Richard Sherman :

Not only did the 49ers pick up the NFL’s most feared cornerback in Sherman, they also picked up a player with an axe to grind against his old team. That grudge could help San Francisco gain ground on the Seattle and propel this rising squad to the front of the NFC West.

Seattle Seahawks — Signing G

D.J. Fluker :

It’s no secret that Seattle’s biggest need was along the offensive line, and the acquisition of Fluker helps fill one of the team's holes up front. The former first-round pick never quite cut it as a tackle in the NFL, but he has turned out to be a decent guard and will be a quality addition for the Seahawks.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Traded for DE

Jason Pierre-Paul :

The Buccaneers swiped two Super Bowl-winning defensive linemen from the Eagles, but the bigger acquisition came from elsewhere in the NFC East. Pierre-Paul also has a championship season under his belt and returns to his home state with something to prove.

Tennessee Titans — Signing CB

Malcolm Butler :

For the second year in a row, the Titans stole a cornerback from the Patriots. Now that Butler has been reunited with

Logan Ryan in Tennessee, he has a an ideal opportunity to redeem himself from the infamous Super Bowl benching opposite a familiar playmaker.

Washington Redskins — Trading for QB

Alex Smith :

Trading for Smith gave Washington a quality starter at quarterback and ended the 

Kirk Cousins saga, solving a problem that once looked like it would have no end. This move allowed the Redskins to move freely into the future with a more certain salary-cap situation.
