As the NFL offseason heats up, more teams look to sure up their lineups and put themselves into position to compete next season. Each team has a different idea on how to improve which creates intriguing news.


One team that is currently rebuilding is the Carolina Panthers. They have the first overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft and are preparing their team to add one of the many young quarterbacks available.


Recent reports say they are very high on Florida’s Anthony Richardson. Standing 6 ‘4’’, 244 lbs, and running a 4.43 40-yard dash, Richardson is indisputably one of the best athletes we’ve ever seen at not only the quarterback position but football in general.


While Richardson is the most athletic QB in this class, CJ Stroud has been deemed the prototypical quarterback. This is due to his frame, accuracy, and decision-making. His maturity should also make him a top NFL player.


The Panthers will have a tough decision on who to draft but with the number one pick, they should be able to get a generational player regardless of the direction they head towards.


Another team looking to rebuild is the Seattle Seahawks who just signed former All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner. Although Wagner is getting older, he is still an effective player. He had previously been a Seahawk for 11 seasons before being cut last offseason and signing with the Los Angeles Rams. The Seahawks will look for him to add leadership to their young defense in an attempt to put the Seahawks closer to Super Bowl contention.


The New York Jets are looking to be contenders for the first time in a while. They just signed Mecole Hardman to add speed to their receiving core. 


While it’s always good to have receivers with game-breaking speed like Hardman, The Jets made this move to convince Aaron Rodgers to play for them. Rodgers has teased wanting to be a Jet but it has been reported that he has a list of demands before he will play for them. It will be interesting to see if the Jets draft more offensive or defensive players.


Lastly, the Baltimore Ravens appear to have angered their franchise quarterback Lamar Jackson as he requested a trade early Monday morning. This comes in the wake of the Ravens giving Jackson the nonexclusive franchise tag which allows other teams to trade for him. The team did not expect this to happen as the Ravens believed that they would be able to keep Jackson or trade him without causing drama. It should be interesting to see what happens with the former MVP going forward as there could be a number of teams in line for his services.
