NFL fans will already know that the league is in its most intriguing period; free agency.

This is the time of the season when players who are out of contract or who have been released, have the opportunity to trade teams in readiness for next season.

It is also a time when teams take stock of their situation and decide whether now is the time to rebuild from the bottom entirely, or to push on and make some moves that could turn them into Super Bowl contenders.

You can check out the odds on the Super Bowl winners for next season in the future markets at bet365 Sport, with odds available for all 32 teams.

And with the NFL Draft coming up at the end of April, it is also a time a team will take stock of what options they are likely to have in that draft, and how they can get best value from their picks.

All of this, of course, takes place within the NFL’s famous salary cap, which means teams do have to make some tough decisions of which personnel to keep, who they can franchise tag and who they have to let go.

So let’s take a look at some of the big news headlines in the NFL from free agency and more over this past week.

Will Aaron Rodgers Bet A New York Jet Next Season?

Allen Lazard has already made the switch from Green Bay to New York to play for the Jets.

Now Aaron Rodgers intends to do the same. That is, if New York and Green Bay can agree a trade for the 4x NFL MVP.

So far, no official announcement of a trade has been made, with suggestions that the Packers and Jets are struggling to find agreeable terms to let Rodgers make the move.

With Packers president Mark Murphy commenting that he was “sworn to secrecy” about the deal, he has already intimated in an earlier interview that Green Bay plan to go with Jordan Love as their franchise quarterback next season.

Of course, the Packers want a hefty deal for their superstar QB, but at age 39 and with perhaps one or two years left in the NFL, will New York want to trade a huge amount for someone who could bring an immediate improvement at QB, but only for a small window in time?

Latest NFL Draft News And Mock Draft Roundup

The big news of the draft is that the Chicago Bears have traded away the number 1 pick in the draft to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a slew of draft picks over this and the next few years, plus talented WR DJ Moore.

No further trades have been announced in the draft as yet and in truth, it is probably unlikely that there will be any further announcements until draft day itself.

Then I feel we may well see some early action, depending on whom the Panthers and Texans take with the first two picks in the draft, with a number of QB needy teams perhaps eyeing the Cardinals third spot pick as one they could trade for.

  • Early Run on QBs Predicted

Many Mock Drafts have seen prospect quarterbacks drafted early, with a couple suggesting we could see four signal callers go in the top five picks.

Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Anthony Richardson and Will Levis are the four rated most likely to go early in the draft, while a number of experts are predicting that Hendon Hooker from Tennessee could also go further down the first round.

Tanner McKee, Jake Haener, Jaren Hall, Max Duggan and Stetson Bennett are just some of the other quarterbacks in this draft that could be picked up by teams with later round picks.

  • Carter’s Crash Involvement Damages His Draft Stock

Rated by many as the best player available in the NFL Draft, former Georgia Bulldogs defensive lineman Jalen Carter has seen his draft stock fall after his involvement in a fatal crash involving a number of his former Bulldogs team mates and staff.

Carter has been charged with reckless driving and racing the other vehicle, which saw Chandler LeCroy, a 24-year-old recruiting staffer for the Bulldogs and offensive lineman Devin Willock, killed.

On the back of that, many experts feel teams are going to be unwilling to take too much of a risk on the hugely talented defensive lineman, as his legal status going forward is unknown.

Carter has pleaded his innocence and says that he expects to be “fully exonerated of any criminal wrongdoing.”
