2021 Offseason Predictions

1. Same Division, Same Face– J.J. Watt asked for his release from the Houston Texans this month. For the first time in his career, he will be wearing the uniform of another team. J.J. may not be the guy he was when he won three defensive MVP awards in four seasons, but he can still have an impact. Pass rushing is still his specialty. The Tennessee Titans struggled to rush the passer all season long in 2020. The Titans will land the veteran defensive end. He would help their defense and provide them with a guy who can consistently rush the passer.

2. Reunion?– It was a rough year for James White both personally and professionally. Now, the dynamic running back is set to enter free agency next month. The Patriots have the money to keep him on the roster, but the depth within their running backs may cause James to go elsewhere. I know a place where he can go and a guy who will welcome him with open arms. Can somebody say Tampa Bay? He was a favorite target of Tom Brady for years and I think he’d be a great fit for the Super Bowl champs.

3. One More Chance?– Cam Newton will be a free agent once again. Things didn’t necessarily pan out in Foxborough for the former MVP quarterback. He’s anxious, yet eager to play once again to prove himself. One team immediately came to mind. That’s the Washington Football Team. Think of the Carolina days and who his coach was. Ron Rivera. Who’s the head coach for Washington now? Ron Rivera! Cam had the best year of his career with Ron as his coach. This could be Cam’s final opportunity to prove he’s still a starting quarterback.

4. A Steel?– This is a deep class of wide receivers for free agency. Corey Davis is one of those prized receivers available. He’s a former first-round pick who hasn’t quite reached his potential yet. Also, he was overshadowed by A.J. Brown the last two seasons. The Steelers had playmakers in their receiving core, but not a consistent number one option. This is where Corey would fit. He’d give Ben Roethlisberger a number one receiver, something he hasn’t had since the Antonio Brown days. His size and catch radius would work in Pittsburgh.

5. OBJ, GB– As lethal as the Green Bay Packers offense was in 2020, they still did most of their damage with one consistent receiver. Allen Lazard is set to be a free agent and Marques Valdes-Scantling doesn’t put fear into defensive backfields. Green Bay would be ideal for the star wide receiver. This would work because Odell loves taking the top off coverages and Aaron Rodgers can still let the ball fly down the field. A potential trio of these three would be scary for any defense preparing to face them.
