San Francisco got Sherman and offensive lineman Weston Richburg. There will be more calculated spending ahead, and besides, the Niners already made the big move of the offseason by signing and then extending Jimmy Garoppolo.
The Rams countered by tagging safety Lamarcus Joyner, trading for cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib and re-signing corner Nickell Robey-Coleman.
Cleveland’s 2015 first-round pick was drafted with the idea of being a nose tackle in Mike Pettine’s 3-4 alignment.
Former Panthers left guard Andrew Norwell wasn’t heard in any rumors regarding the Jags, but there he is, about to line up next to stud center Brandon Linder and further boost the blocking in front of Leonard Fournette for the league’s No. 1 rushing attack. The Jaguars don’t want to mess with the running game/physical identity that got them a quarter away from the Super Bowl. At the same time, they took a worthy flyer on a cheaper Robinson fill-in with former Colt Donte Moncrief and also kept Marqise Lee.
Grade for Vikings: B+ After adding Keenum, the Broncos found themselves with an overstuffed quarterback room and dealt one away to Minnesota.
Denver sent Week 1 starter Siemian to the Vikings along with a seventh-round pick for a 2019 fifth-round selection.
The move presumably installs Paxton Lynch as the primary backup for Keenum depending on what the Broncos do in the draft, a situation that would not inspire much hope in the case of a Keenum injury.
Wade has felt the love of those crowds as he has expanded his pursuits beyond sneakers. His Li-Ning deal allowed him to develop and trademark his own logo, which he can use not only on his signature Way of Wade shoes, but also on any other product he develops and endorses, such as his Wade Cellars wine.
That’s good news for teams like the Broncos and Cardinals, who need a quarterback but have limited cap room to work with this offseason. Still, there’s a long list of players better than McCarron who might find jobs first.
Buffalo is shipping off all kinds of assets before the league year opens. On Monday, they dealt left tackle Cordy Glenn to the Bengals and swapped first-round picks with Cincy as part of the deal.
