The 2022 NFL season has finally begun after what could be described as one of the wildest offseasons in years.

We’re just speculating on some of the major off-season storylines leading up to the events of week 1…

Aaron Rodgers intrigues have long been on NFL offseason bingo cards, and this year is no different.

The Packers quarterback finally shed some clarity on his future, signing a new three-year, $150.8 million, $101.5 million guaranteed contract in March before Robin left for his Batman and Davante Adams was traded. Las Vegas Raiders. Adams’ target turnout the past two seasons has been 29.65 percent (2021) and 28.33 percent (2020) for a combined 2,927 yards. This is not a drop, but an abyss in production. He makes Matt LaFleur work hard to make it with the stunt team.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ top 10 games in the 2021 NFL season.

Rodgers, who publicly expressed his frustration with young receivers throwing the ball in practice, joked that running back Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon could end up throwing out 50 each; spoiler, I wasn’t kidding.

The Browns have received unmatched attention long before a single snap has been played this season. The Cleveland traded for Deshawn Watson on March 18 and signed Jacoby Brisset as a kind of insurance policy on March 25, while freezing Baker Mayfield, who has since won the starting job with the Carolina Panthers. This means Cleveland has had a full five months to decide if they’re comfortable starting with Brisset, if they can find a better solution than Brisset, if they compete with Brisset/survive/pray knowing Watson will inevitably lose. a significant part of the campaign through suspension.

Watson, who was given a $230 million fully guaranteed contract, will miss the first 11 games of the season after the NFL appealed an initial six-game suspension following allegations of sexual harassment during massage sessions during his tenure. with the Houston Texans. He is eligible to return in Week 13 when the Browns face the Texans.

In recent years, Brisset’s work has ranged from addressing Andrew Luck’s retirement issues in a timely manner to being a short-yardage specialist, without lowering the curtain on a long-term start. His newest role could well be seen as that of a night watchman, keeping the playoff team competitive and averting disaster before Watson, albeit a rusty Watson, is ready to take the reins. Fortunately, he has a bulldozer in the form of Nick Chubb and a tormentor Miles Garrett in the company.
