Antonio Brown Traded to the Raiders

Antonio Brown’s wish has finally come true, as Ben Roethlisberger is no longer his quarterback.

Instead of Big Ben, Brown will now be catching passes from Derek Carr after the Oakland Raiders completed a trade for the superstar receiver.

The Raiders were able to get a steal in this trade, as it took just a third and a fifth round draft pick to net arguably the best receiver in the NFL.

Anyone paying attention to Brown’s social media today would have seen just how happy this change of scenery has made the former Steeler.

One reason for Brown to be so happy about this move, is because he all of a sudden has a lot more guaranteed money coming his way.

Brown was set to make nearly $39 million over the next three years, but none of that money was guaranteed. Now he gets $30 million guaranteed, along with roughly $4 million more per season.

While consensus around the Steelers organization was that Brown’s time in Pittsburgh had to come to an end, the fact that they did not get more in this trade has left some fans puzzled by the move.


It is hard not to sympathize with Steelers fans here, considering the fact the Brown is coming off a historic six-year stretch in which his production has reached heights that we have never seen before.

Only time will tell if Brown can keep up that level of play for the next three years, but if he does, the Raiders just made an unbelievable trade.

Bengals Cut Ties with Controversial Linebacker Vontaze Burfict

There is no one in the NFL that is more widely considered a dirty player than Vontaze Burfict.

Burfict has been suspended multiple times and is caught taking cheap shots on opposing players nearly every week that he is on the field.

The Bengals have stood by Burfict, because of his obvious talent, for years but they ultimately decided he wasn’t worth the headache and have officially released the former Pro Bowler.

While his time in Cincinnati has come to an end, we will never forget all of the punishing hits he has given throughout his career.

When the dust settles, it will be interesting to see if a win-now team decides to take a flier on Burfict despite his reputation.

‘Fitzmagic’ Takes His Talents to South Beach

After trading Ryan Tannehill was last week, the Miami Dolphins were left without a starting quarterback.

Now it seems that they have their guy, as the Dolphins have signed journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick to be their signal caller for the 2019 season.

At this rate, Fitzpatrick will end up playing for over half of the teams in the NFL as he seems to land on a new squad every year.

Last year, “Fitzmagic” swept through the Tampa area for a few weeks, as Fitzpatrick lead the Buccaneers to a few early season wins. “Fitzmagic” could not maintain that success for long run, but those games were the highlight of an otherwise dismal season for the Buccaneers.

The Dolphins hope for the same kind of success, or lack thereof, this season as they are clearly in tank mode. Fitzpatrick winning a few games to bring excitement will be good for the fans, but he is really in Miami to lose.

We cannot possibly now how bad this season gets for the Dolphins, but it sure got more interesting with their signing of Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Johhny Manziel is finally back in the states after being banned from the Canadian Football League last month.

Not only is Manziel back, but he is also set to hit the football field again, as it was announced that he has signed with the Alliance of American Football.

The AAF is six weeks into their inaugural season and is in a desperate need of some star power.

Manziel is hands-down the biggest star to sign with the AAF and he now becomes the ironic face of this newfound spring football league.

While Manziel is one of the most controversial figures in sports, he is at least a draw that will bring eyes to the upstart AAF.

Manziel will now report to the Memphis Express, as they had the worst record in the AAF and were able to get the first crack at claiming him through their waiver system.

As crazy as it is to say, the entire future of the new AAF league may lie with Johnny Manziel, because if he plays well, their audience is likely to grow exponentially.
