Where will Trevor Lawrence land next year? These are the five teams that come to mind:

5. New England Patriots- New England has taken a big step backwards. It’s hard to bet against Bill Belichick but this team is in bad shape. If they do finish last in the league. Trevor Lawrence would be a nice consolation prize.

4. Carolina Panthers- Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski’s arrival in the NFC South means Carolina will face an uphill battle. Keep in mind they were already last in this division a year ago. If they’re the worst team in football then it’s bad news for Teddy Bridgewater.

3. Detroit Lions- The Detroit Lions are always bad and sooner or later it’s going to fall on Matthew Stafford’s shoulders. Stafford isn’t the problem in the Motor City. But Trevor Lawrence will be too good to pass up.

2. New York Jets- New York isn’t a very good team and they don’t seem to have a game plan. They’ll probably stick with Sam Darnold. However it’s hard to see them finishing any better than 6-10. That at least puts them in the conversation for the first overall pick.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars- Gardner Minshew has shown a lot of promise. Unfortunately the Jaguars haven’t done a good enough job of building around him. Instead Jacksonville focused on their defense this off-season. And it could come at Minshew’s expense. Even if it isn’t his fault.

Honorable mention. Cincinnati Bengals- They just took Joe Burrow. But Cincinnati will still be near the bottom of the league. Will they be tempted to dump Burrow for Trevor Lawrence? It’s possible but unlikely.

Who’s the most improved team in the NFL? Look no further than the Miami Dolphins:

The Miami Dolphins added so much talent to their roster it’s mind blowing. When you go across the board and see how many boxes they’ve checked off. You can already tell that will have a big impact on the field. Because talent trumps everything in the NFL. We can start in the backfield where they brought in Tua Tagovailoa to be their next franchise quarterback. Eventually Tagovailoa will take over this team and give them the spark they need. But we can’t forget that Miami also brought in Jordan Howard and Matt Breida to solidify their running game. So they’ve got better athletes than they’ve had in the past. And then they drafted Austin Jackson to get tougher at the line of scrimmage. For most teams that would be a pretty good off-season. However that’s only the moves the Dolphins have made on offense. On the other side of the ball they added Byron Jones and Noah Igbinoghene so they can play more man coverage. Shaq Lawson and Kyle Van Noy also came down to South Florida. And you have to remember that those two guys played for the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots. Who happen to be the Dolphins rivals in the AFC East. So not only did they gain some key pieces. They also took those pieces away from two teams they’ll face twice a year. With Brian Flores overseeing all of this it feels like there’s something special happening with this team.

If Jalen Ramsey leaves the Los Angeles Rams. Two years will be wasted:

Jalen Ramsey said that he’ll show up to the Los Angeles Rams training camp without a new contract. But what if Ramsey doesn’t plan on re-signing with the Rams? Ramsey could have his poker face on because he knows that he plans on cashing in after next season. And if Ramsey left Los Angeles in free agency it would be a complete disaster for the Rams. You have to remember Les Snead traded two first round picks and fourth round pick to get this guy. That’s so much draft capital to trade away and if Los Angeles doesn’t have the player either (Ramsey). They could find themselves in a world of trouble. Looking back at that exchange it’s becoming obvious that Jacksonville got the better end of the deal. Snead has made a number of poor decisions as the G.M of this team. But this could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. If Ramsey doesn’t stick around then Los Angeles has to fire Snead. Because he’s buried the Rams with some of the choices he’s made. It might not be over yet either. All eyes will be on Ramsey and what he does next off-season?

Dak Prescott believes a shorter contract is the best course of action for him. Otherwise known as the Kirk Cousins strategy:

Kirk Cousins’ contract is serving as a template for Dak Prescott. If you’re not familiar with Cousins’ deal. He took a 3-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings for $84M. The idea is that the NFL’s revenue will grow three years down the road and that means the contracts will be worth more. It’s actually a brilliant strategy but there is some risk involved. Cousins bet on himself by believing he’ll be healthy and productive over the duration of his agreement. Luckily for Cousins he’s been able to do so. But Prescott has to be careful because if he isn’t as fortunate. Then it could end up costing him a lot of money. If Prescott got hurt or had a down year. He could see his earnings go from $40M per year to much less than that. And we can’t forget that Andy Dalton is also on the Cowboys’ roster. So that makes the situation even riskier. If Dallas really wants to give Prescott a longer deal (7-years). Then he shouldn’t be fighting for a shorter contract. Because we all know how dangerous this sport is. And Prescott will be grateful to have that security if he does run into any problems. It’s like the old saying goes “better safe than sorry.”

Teddy Bridgewater earned a starting quarterback job. Now he has to show us that he’s here to stay:

Teddy Bridgewater worked so hard to battle back from a horrific knee injury. Then he took the long road back to being a starting quarterback. Which included stops with the Vikings, Jets, and Saints. Now after an impressive stretch with New Orleans. Bridgewater finds himself in Carolina hoping to be the answer for the Panthers. It seems like he’ll succeed in that quest because he’s already overcame so much to get where he is today. That tells you just how resilient Bridgewater is. There were so many points throughout his journey where he could’ve given up or just been content as a backup. But Bridgewater was determined to write his own history. And he didn’t want to let an injury prevent him from fulfilling his potential. With the Panthers he finally has that chance. He’s got a new three-year $63M contract with Carolina. But we can’t forget that the Arizona Cardinals once signed Kevin Kolb to a five-year deal and he didn’t even make it halfway through that agreement. So we’ve seen guys in this same situation squander their opportunity. You get the feeling that won’t be the case with Bridgewater because he developed thick skin during those tough times. That’s going to help him this upcoming season and it’ll probably be the reason why Bridgewater ends up working out for the Panthers.
