National Football League (NFL) is a strange

  • For instance , Leonard Fournette was one of the league's most effective running backs last season and Saquon Barkley is expected to be just as effective in his first season with the New York Giants. The league is increasingly becoming younger and teams and adapting. Players don't want to play the dangerous sport for as long and are also becoming less effective into their early 30s due to the physical nature of football. As a result, teams seem more willing to take chances on players via trade and free agent signings and, at the same time, more eager to cut ties with a player if he isn't performing up to expectation early in his career, although part of that can be owed to the absence of guaranteed contracts in the league.Every league has its fair share of teams that have made regrettable trades or signings but Drew Lock Jersey , because of the changing nature of the league, the NFL has been more prone to ridiculous transactions in recent memory. Not saying that this list was 100 percent inspired by the Khalil Mack trade, but it's not hard to guess as to where that transaction ends up on the list. But that's just one of 20 recent moves teams are already wishing they hadn't made in the past year or so. Not surprisingly, the Browns and Bills show up more than once on the list, but even successful teams like the Patriots and Rams aren't immune from bad decisions. TEMPE , Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals thought they had their quarterback of the future when they moved up five spots to take Josh Rosen at No. 10 of last year’s NFL draft.Now they have a new future.Arizona selected a quarterback with a first-round pick for the second straight year, nabbing Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray at No. 1 overall. The Cardinals then shipped Rosen off to Miami, getting the No. 62 overall pick this year and a fifth-rounder next year in return.“The more and more we dug in, the more it became crystal clear Kyler Murray was the pick,” Cardinals GM Steve Keim said. “I’ve been doing this 20 years and I’ve seen guys who can throw like him T.J. Hockenson Jersey , guys who can run it like him. I can tell you I’ve never seen the combination he brings to the table.”The Cardinals expect Murray to thrive in new coach Kliff Kingsbury’s pro version of the Air Raid offense and made sure he will have plenty of targets, picking three receivers in the draft.A look at the rest of the Cardinals’ 2019 draft:WHO THEY GOT: Murray was the big name, but Arizona addressed some glaring needs with the rest of the draft. The Cardinals used the 33rd overall pick on Washington cornerback Byron Murphy, hoping he can play opposite Pro Bowler Patrick Peterson. Arizona added a group of receivers for Kingsbury to play with: Massachusetts’ Andy Isabella, Iowa State’s Hakeem Butler Zach Brown Jersey , and KeeSean Johnson from Fresno State. Boston College defensive end Zach Allen, selected in the third round, should provide help on the defensive line and Alabama safety Deionte Thompson gives the Cardinals depth in the defensive backfield. Arizona closed out the draft by picking Morgan State OL Josh Miles, Temple DT Michael Dogbe and made UCLA TE Caleb Wilson “Mr. Irrelevant” by selecting him with the draft’s final pick.SURPRISE MOVE: Picking Murray and trading Rosen was a bold move, but the Cardinals believe the Heisman Trophy winner can be a transformational player.HOW THEY DID: The Cardinals needed help on the defensive line Kyler Murray Jersey , cornerback and receiver, so their picks should boost those areas. They also needed offensive line help but waited until the sixth round to draft Georgia center Lamont GaillardWHAT’S NEXT?: Murray will be the unquestioned starter heading into next season with Rosen no longer on the roster. His success will depend on whether his speed, athleticism and ability to throw at different angles will be enough to overcome his lack of size (5-foot-10) for an NFL quarterback. Murphy could start as a nickel cornerback or play opposite Peterson if recently signed Robert Alford doesn’t get the job. Isabella and Butler will give Arizona speedy receiver options and Thompson a big target to go with Larry Fitzgerald and second-year pro Christian Kirk.
