Bad Team Offseasons

Wow! Some teams seemingly had terrible offseasons. I’d say that the worst ones were the Eagles and Dolphins. Let’s recap some of their moves:

Eagles:

Oh boy. I feel bad for that fan base. That franchise has probably removed itself from the playoff picture for the next three years. Good news is, they’ll have a shot at Connor Cook next year!

Signed DeMarco Murray (5 years, $8 Mil/Year, 45% Guaranteed)

How did this happen?! Seriously?! DeMarco Murray has played one full year in his injury-riddled career. This latest year was just a fluke. Plus, he was only able to dominate with Dallas’ top-notch O-Line. $18 Million Guaranteed?! This truly baffles me.

Signed Byron Maxwell (6 years, $10.5 Mil/Year, 35% Guaranteed)

This was bad. I laughed when I saw these numbers; they make Byron Maxwell the 5th highest paid CB right now. Maxwell is a clear product of the Seahawks system. I would need all of my fingers and my toes if I wanted to count every CB better than Maxwell. Richard Sherman only makes $3.5 Million less every year, but Sherman receives less guaranteed money. I can’t wrap my head around this contract.

Dolphins:

This franchise has no signs of becoming any smarter. They haven’t had any hope since the Wildcat ages. Tannehill isn’t progressing very well at all, and they still need a speedy WR.

Signed Ndamukong Suh ($19.1 Mil/Year, 52% Guarenteed)

Maybe the worst signing this free agency. Miami has so many holes, namely at Quarterback and Wide Receiver, so paying QB money to a DT is mind-boggling. Ndamukong Suh isn’t the best defensive player EVER! Yet, he’s being paid like he is.

 

Dolphins trade

  • Mike Wallace
  • 7th Round Selection

To Vikings for

  • 5th Round Selection

Wow. Just, wow. Why don’t the Dolphins like offense? Philbin won’t be back next year. They have no apparent talent, save for Kenny Stills. But Stills isn’t a WR1. Nor will their 5th Round Selection.
