Biggest NFL Offseason Trades and Signings 2022

The NFL Offseason is in full swing for the 2022-2023 season. While small deals were made earlier this offseason, some of the biggest names stole the headlines this past week.

BLOCKBUSTER BRONCOS

The biggest story to come out this week was a blockbuster trade between the Broncos and the Seahawks. The trade involved ten year veteran Russell Wilson moving too Denver for a massive haul of draft picks and players. 

The trade package sent to the Seahawks included Drew Lock, Noah Fant, Shelby Harris, two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and a fifth round pick in the draft. In return, the Broncos receive Russell Wilson and a 2022 fourth round pick in the NFL draft. 

The Broncos are expected to have a loaded roster on the offensive side of the ball for 2022. Wide receivers Courtland Sutton, Jerry Judy, and Tim Patrick are dangerous weapons for Wilson to target. 

MONEY, MONEY, MONEY IN GREEN BAY 

Overshadowed by the Wilson news, Aaron Rodgers reportedly signed a 4-year $200 million deal back to Green Bay. 

Rodgers confirmed himself that he has not signed a new contract with the team yet. He will have a much more team friendly contract due to wide receiver Devante Adams’ franchise tag given to him earlier this week. 

If the Packers did offer that huge contract to Rodgers, they cannot offer Adams a long term deal because they will be over the salary cap/luxury tax. Although Rodgers is the highest paid quarterback, Adams is determined to be the highest paid receiver in the NFL. 

WENTZ REVENGE TOUR IN NFC EAST AND KHALIL MACK MOVES TO LA

The Indianapolis Colts are trading quarterback Carson Wentz to the Commanders for multiple draft picks. Originally, Washington offered a massive haul of first round picks to the Seahawks for Wilson, but Seattle declined the offer. Washington will play two of his former teams this season which include the Colts and the Eagles twice.

Khalil Mack is moving to LA after the Bears traded him for a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023 sixth-round pick in the draft. Coming off his third season with Chicago, Mack marked only one double digit sack total in his first year with the team. The Chargers defense will now include two of the best with Mack and Joey Bosa in the trenches.
