Tuesday was one of the craziest days in NFL offseason history. It started with Aaron Rodgers telling his buddy Pat McAfee that he’s returning to Green Bay in a somewhat predictable announcement given how everything had been trending. Reports of a four-year, $200 million deal are still being denied by Rodgers’ camp, but he will be playing for the cheesemen in 2022.
A few hours later, as teams designated their franchise tags or re-signed some of their own players, the Denver Broncos decided to drop a bombshell. They agreed to trade for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, a move that only cost them two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a fifth-round pick, and three players—quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, and defensive end Shelby Harris. But hey, they also got a fourth-round pick in return!
In between those massive moves, the Detroit Lions also broke some news by re-signing veteran wide receiver Josh Reynolds to a two-year deal. It was a solid, savvy move to solidify their wide receiver No. 2 or 3 position, depending on how you label Amon-Ra St. Brown.
So considering the historic day, the PODcast crew gathered for an emergency mini-podcast to react to Tuesday’s wildness.
- How does Reynold’s re-signing impact the rest of the Lions’ offseason?
- With a depleted wide receiver market in free agency, will the Lions no longer be major players?
- What is the impact of the Jaguars tagging offensive tackle Cam Robinson?
- Did the Packers make the right move or are they just digging a hole?
- Is the Seahawks’ haul for Wilson a result of last year’s Matthew Stafford trade or did the Lions get low-balled?
