Top nine NFL offenses in 2020? Watch out for cowboys, chefs, crows and… Bengals? | NFL.com
2 chefs de Kansas City
This is Patrick Mahomes’ world and we all live in it. The reigning Super Bowl MVP (and 2018 League MVP) is clearly the best player in the NFL and the driving force behind this unstoppable attack. He just signed a deal for half a billion dollars – and he’s worth every penny. Barely 24 years old, Mahomes has plenty of room to grow, which is a terrifying thought for the rest of the NFL. Can you imagine how dominant this guy will be when his experience catches up with his transcendent skills?
Of course, it doesn’t hurt Mahomes because Kansas City has assembled a dangerous and diverse pass-catching track team. Tyreek Hill is the game’s biggest home hitter today. Its unmatched speed keeps defensive coordinators awake at night. Sammy Watkins is a threat to take over any game he plays in. The former No. 4 overall pick opened last season with a master class of 198 yards and three touchdowns and closed it with a prolific playoff streak. Mecole Hardman steals and scores (six of 26 TDs as a rookie), while Demarcus Robinson played a 172-yard game last season. Oh, yeah – and how about Travis Kelce? You know, the best tight end on this side of George Kittle? And I can’t wait to see first-round pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire in that attack. He is an ideal modern running back as a playmaker in the ground game and air attack.
And who is in charge of this spicy collection of supreme talent? Ingenious offensive guru (and future Hall of Famer) Andy Reid. Start warming up those fingers, dash operators.

Chefs de Kansas City
The Super Bowl champions don’t need any help, but canceling those games against NFC South would sure be nice. They are expected to face this division in the second half of the season. Including road games for this division’s two Super Bowl contenders, New Orleans and Tampa Bay. They are already set to finish with back-to-back home games and reducing the December load a bit would go even further to increase their chances of a repeat.

Attack: QB Patrick Mahomes Defense: S Tyrann Mathieu
What Mahomes has been up to the past two seasons – winning the NFL MVP award in his first season as a starter and being named Super Bowl LIV MVP in his second, then getting the biggest contract of any athlete in American sports history – speaks for itself. Mathieu, meanwhile, turned out to be the missing ingredient in the Chiefs’ championship-winning mix. The security veteran recorded four picks, 12 assists defended, two sacks and 75 tackles in his freshman year at Kansas City, earning first-team All-Pro honors and helping a 31st-ranked pass defense in 2018 to reach the top 10 in 2019.

Chefs de Kansas City: Sammy Watkins, WR
Watkins has been a playoff hero for the Chiefs after a very irregular regular season. He’s only had 673 yards in 14 games and is still a long way from the 1,000 yards we saw early in his career with Buffalo. It’s possible he may have seen less attention this season with the emergence of Mecole Hardman.

Buffalo Bills signs Sean McDermott for multi-year contract extension | Buffalo Rumblings (Buffalo Bills SB Nation site)
the Buffalo Bills signed head coach Sean McDermott for a multi-year contract extension, the team announced. McDermott was entering year four of the five-year deal he agreed to when he joined the Bills in 2017, which meant that expectations for an extension were turning.
The decision was clear and McDermott was the first name on our list of planned contract extensions published earlier today. With a 25-23 record and two playoff appearances in his three years as a head coach, McDermott is the Bills ‘most successful coach since Wade Phillips’ tenure 20 years ago. He rebuilt the culture of a team in the midst of their worst playoff drought, oversaw a dramatic roster overhaul, and led the team from that slump to a playoff argument. He has also overseen a defense that has placed in the top 3 in yards allowed over the past two seasons.

Ravens de Baltimore
The Ravens can’t touch Matthew Judon’s contract until the start of next January, as he’s playing with a $ 16.808 million franchise this season. Judon will be assured of free agency in 2021 if the Ravens do not extend Ronnie Stanley’s contract, as Stanley will be franchised.
The Texans have done the Ravens a disservice with Laremy Tunsil’s $ 22 million per year extension, which contains an offensive lineman record of $ 40 million fully guaranteed at signing. Tunsil having a higher-than-expected average annual salary for a shorter period than expected likely complicates Stanley’s negotiations.
Stanley, who is set to earn $ 12.866 million this season on a fifth-year option, was selected sixth in the 2016 NFL Draft, seven picks before Tunsil. The two were named to the Pro Bowl for the first time last season, with Stanley also claiming first-team All-Pro honors.
Aside from cornerback Marcus Peters, the Ravens aren’t used to making high-end deals where players only give up three new years on extensions signed in the final year of rookie contracts or when they expire. . Unlike Tunsil, Peters had to sacrifice his average annual salary for a shorter tenure. It will be interesting to see how Stanley capitalizes on Tunsil by radically resetting the market for offensive equipment.
Jets’ Le’Veon Bell expects career year after ‘complacent’ season | ESPN
“This is what I felt best and I’m ready to show it,” he said Wednesday in a video conference with reporters. “I’m ready to show he’s the best Le’Veon Bell that has ever played in the NFL.”
Bell, whose reported playing weight is 222, said he was between 210 and 215. He thought he was in good shape last year too, but admitted in retrospect that he “wasn’t even close” from where it should be. On May 30, he decided to step up his off-season training.
Big 12 football to continue; NFL May Adjust Offseason Schedule To Host Spring College Football | NFL.com
“One thing that is very clear after speaking to several NFL officials and high ranking members of different teams, the NFL is going to do what it can to welcome college football and basically help guide them through. that and help them adjust their own timeline to make sure it works for all sides, ”said Rapoport during an appearance on Good morning football ahead of Wednesday’s Big 12 announcement. “For example, if there are things in the NFL calendar that need to be moved or moved to help college football play in the spring, if that’s what they decide to do. It is certainly something the NFL is more than willing to do. They know pretty well how important college football is to some of them.

Patrick Mahomes on quarantine: “That’s the plan”
And ever since Brady had arrived, Bayless has asked Mahomes if he could picture himself playing at Brady’s 43-year-old.
“That’s the goal,” said the 24-year-old, who has already signed a contract to stay with the Chiefs during the 2031 season. “I spoke to two of my teammates who have younger children. I always joke with them and tell them, “I will play with your children every time you look from your house”. To play up to 43, you have to have that mentality that Tom had – not only to be awesome on the football field but also to be awesome off it; to be able to go there every day and take care of your body. So far I’ve worked out a good plan with my coach every year, and I’m going to try to do that and be as healthy as possible – so that I can play at this age.
