Grades for the Marcus Peters trade: The Chiefs get a fra smithlucky's blog

C for their end of the swap, in which they sent Peters and the 196th Authentic Miles Plumlee Jersey pick to the Rams for the 124th selection and a 2019 second-rounder. If the Rams finish 20th in the draft order next year and we don't depreciate the pick's value for time (both of which are perhaps conservative estimates), the Chase Stuart suggests the Chiefs picked up the 33rd selection in a typical draft for a 25-year-old formerMen's Replica Majestic Pedro Martinez White Alternate Home Jersey - #45 MLB Boston Red Sox Cool BaseAll-Pro cornerback on a below-market deal for the next two seasons. While Kansas City clearly wanted to trade Peters, this is a price point at which the Chiefs probably needed to trust their ability to rehabilitate Peters and bring him back into the fold. The Rams, meanwhile, get a B+ for their end of the bargain. They probably need to start holding onto their draft picks after sending high selections out in the trades for Peters, Jared Goff, and Sammy Watkins, but they're not incurring an enormous Authentic Deacon Jones Jersey amount of risk in trading for Peters. They can go year-to-year and pay the Washington product just $27.5 million over the next three seasons, which is less than inferior cornerbacks like Dre Kirkpatrick and Logan Ryan got in their free-agent deals last offseason. Men's Mitch Richmond Swingman White Adidas Jersey: NBA Sacramento Kings #2 Throwback 1995 All StarPlenty of people figured the Chiefs were going to trade Alex Smith this offseason to free up their starting job for 2017 first-round pick Patrick Mahomes. They were half-right. The Chiefs didn't wait until the offseason to make their move, agreeing to a deal to trade Smith to Washington for a third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller. Washington's stunning trade for a new quarterback should reverberate around the league; a half-dozen teams that weren't involved with the deal suddenly saw their offseason plans change or come into focus. The deal (and Smith's subsequent extension) obviously suggest Washington will be moving on from incumbent quarterback Kirk Cousins, who will hit unrestricted free agency. The Ravens in 2019 can move on from Flacco, who hasn't played up to a contract that ranks among the richest in the NFL. Flacco ranks No. 36 in passer rating since being named Super Bowl MVP, throwing 98 touchdowns and 74 interceptions over the past five seasons. If Baltimore was thinking about moving on from Flacco, 33, the selection of Mayfield makes sense. Mayfield was one of the most decorated quarterbacks in college football history, winning the Heisman Trophy in a landslide. Taking Red Auerbach Youth jersey a quarterback Teemu Selanne Jerseythis year would allow him to sit for a year behind Flacco before having to play. But this would be a bold move for a franchise that has to win now. The Ravens haven't reached the playoffs for three straight seasons, and there's an urgency to add playmakers to produce immediately. It's difficult to make a pick aimed at helping the team in the future when there are jobs on the line now. The other line of thinking is a team can't pass on a quarterback you really like because you never know what that quarterback class will look like next year or the year after that. Mayfield would be a completely different pick than Flacco a decade ago. He's a shorter but brasher quarterback from a big-time program, which contrasts the taller and more stoic Flacco who came from what he called the minor leagues of college football. Opinions vary greatly on Mayfield, one of the more polarizing figures in the draft. Some believe he has the size (he's listed at 6-foot-1) to warrant a pick in the top half of the first round, and others believe he has the "it factor" to be the face of a franchise. Mayfield's numbers are jaw-dropping. Over the past two seasons, he completed over 70 percent of his passes while throwing 83 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. There are character concerns. A year ago, he was arrested for public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and fleeing. Teams have to be certain about not repeating a Johnny Manziel Mayfield also created some controversy during his playing career, from planting an Oklahoma flag at midfield of Ohio Stadium following a win over Ohio State to grabbing his crotch and cursing at the Kansas sideline. He later apologized for both incidents. At the NFL combine, Mayfield showed a strong arm and tested well, according to ESPN's Todd McShay. He's considered the 10th-best prospect in the draft by Mel Kiper Jr. The Ravens have only drafted two quarterbacks in the first round -- Kyle Boller in 2003 and Flacco in 2008 -- and have never selected one in the top half of the first round. Let's face it: If you want to suck up to your friendly uniform columnist and contest judge, you could do a lot worse than to include striped sleeves -- and especially striped socks. That's what O'Keefe did, and it's hard to argue with the results, especially with the dark teal metallic-flake helmet -- a nice touch. But hey, Angus, if you really want to end up as teacher's pet, you need to move those sock stripes up to calf level! Let’s start with the most obvious and pressing matter. Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins will also become a free agent next week after the Redskins chose not to apply the franchise tag for a third straight year. As ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported, the Vikings are one of four teams expected to compete to land Cousins’ talents, along with the Jets, Broncos and Cardinals. The team's decision not to franchise Keenum only further tips the scale in favor of going after Cousins. With speculation that Cousins could command a deal with upwards of $90 million guaranteed, it’s fair to point out that the Vikings have the ninth-most cap space in the NFL and are in the best spot among Cousins’ potential suitors to win now. It appears that the free-agency quarterback market will run through Minnesota. Whatever happens with Cousins -- and whether he signs with the Vikings -- will set a number of other wheels in motion. If Cousins signs with the Vikings after free agency officially opens March 14, a new era will have officially begun in Minnesota. However, if he doesn’t, the Vikings have to go to Plan B or C.,103333,100535
