A big part of the NFL offseason began on Tuesday with teams deciding whether or not to put “franchise tags” on free agent players to keep them (and the big salaries that come with that) or let them go to sign elsewhere. On WISE Sports Radio, we highlighted the biggest names tagged and which ones will be in demand on the open market.
Also, will the Carolina Panthers keep quarterback Teddy Bridgewater after trying to trade him and upgrade at the position? What are the remaining options? And is Drew Brees going to retire and jump into broadcasting, or is he preparing to play one more season?
While sports are on hiatus due to the coronavirus crisis, there was one big development that still held some drama and suspense: Would Tom Brady leave the New England Patriots and end his NFL career with another team?Now we know. Brady will be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterback next season.
Of course, that led Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment. Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discussed other big free agent signings and trades that have happened this week, including Teddy Bridgewater signing with the Carolina Panthers, Philip Rivers going to the Indianapolis Colts, and a bizarre allegation toward Houston Texans coach and general manager Bill O’Brien.
