As the NFL’s 2017 League Year opens, we here at PowerHouse and our Members and broader community are whipped into a frenzy. We’re in the midst of preparing for the NFL Draft, now just seven weeks away, but we’re taking a break from that work to focus on the veterans whose contracts are expiring and who will be on the market for anyone to sign.

Since I posted Part 1 of this 2-part series, I've done a bunch more updates to our contracts. Hearty thanks to Jason Fitzgerald of OvertheCap.com, who was very responsive when I reached out with a bunch of questions and suggested edits. Jason's site is a great resource for us, and belongs in all of our browser bookmarks.

Going through the process of updating the contracts in our system is always an interesting exercise, and there is much to be learned from the moves that teams make and how contracts are structured. Here are some things that stood out this time around, in no particular order...

More Player Trades than Usual?

NFL_Draft_Trades_Adrian_PetersonEarlier this week, I had an interesting email exchange with Shane Johnson - one of the guys here at PowerHouse who does a lot of great work for us. You will hear a lot more from Shane in the coming weeks...

The topic was Shane's speculation that the way the NFL Draft might fall could lead to teams having a "best available" in front of them who is at a position that is not a need, and in that case, might we see veteran players traded during the Draft, potentially including Adrian Peterson, to clear cap space and open a path for the draftees.

I thought the conversation was interesting enough to turn into a blog post, so here it is...

SHANE:

Hey, Chris. A couple of weeks ago I read where an NFL GM was quoted as saying that there are no more than 15 true 1st rounders in this year's draft. When I read that I felt like he was probably correct.

A few hours ago I was able to run the mock draft while selecting for each team manually based on the needs. In some situations there was not a player that I felt was good enough to meet their needs in the first round. The next best thing was to select the best player available for that team. But, when attempting to do this, I ran into situations where the best available player would be sitting the bench due to the talent the team already has at that position.

From what I have discovered this draft is going to be a very unique one. If you are in the top 10, things will work out for teams quite well. But after that it becomes very difficult. I think we are going to see more trades than we normally would but not in the way that we tend to see draft day trades executed.

The first team I ran into that had needs that could be filled in the next couple of rounds was Minnesota. The best player I thought was left on the board was Melvin Gordon. But with AP in the backfield what do they do?

NFL Team Needs | NFL General Managers – The Difficulty of Cutting Veteran Players

By Ted Sundquist, The Football Educator

NFL Team Needs Shannon SharpeThis past week I was asked on air, “When do you know that an established veteran no longer has it?” No longer has it? Hmmm. That was about as good a question that’s been thrown out at me in years. From a NFL General Manager’s perspective it’s the “million dollar question”. Sometimes it can be a multi-million dollar question.

NFL Transactions | 2012 NFL Roster Cuts – Matt Overton’s Journey

By Ted Sundquist, The Football Educator

NFL Transactions UFL OvertonAnd so it goes. A little over six weeks ago NFL Training Camps opened with optimistic energy. Thirty-two clubs entered the official start of the 2012 Preseason with hopes of a Super Bowl Championship, playoff appearance, or at least some signs of improvement upon their efforts from the season before. The arduous process of assembling 90 man rosters over the course of seven months started with NFL front offices looking under every rock, checking every nook and cranny for available talent to improve their chances this season; Reserve Futures, Unrestricted Free Agency, the 2012 NFL Draft, trades, waiver claims and street Free Agents.
