The NFL sure is making us watch the headlines as we prepare for the regular season. From interesting holdouts to players requesting trades and a team open about wanting to trade a former No. 3 pick, we have it all.
Michael Lombardi is back with another episode of The GM Shuffle presented by DraftKings Network. He is joined by his co-host Femi Abebefe to break down the latest moves around the NFL.
The duo begins by addressing the news that the San Francisco 49ers have not only named Trey Lance as their QB3 but have also revealed their intention to explore trade options for him. He will play in the team’s final preseason game, becoming an impromptu audition.
Lombardi and Abebefe then turn their attention to Jonathan Taylor’s situation, where he has been granted to seek a trade. Still, the Indianapolis Colts have set the price high despite not wanting to pay the running back a high salary.
They end the podcast by discussing Chris Jones’ holdout from the Kansas City Chiefs and his threat to sit out until Week 8. Also, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have named Baker Mayfield their QB1; how does this affect their season outlook?
