During a recent appearance on ' The Rich Eisen Show', former Chicago Bears and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was asked about his relationship with his old quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall, who has zero chill, replied that he had not spoken to Cutler in "two years." Naturally, Eisen was shocked and mentioned that they were teammates just a season ago. Marshall essentially confirmed that they were not talking off the field during his last year in Chicago, but ultimately wished Cutler well.
With the added element of Calvin Johnson's possible retirement, here are five free agents the Detroit Lions should pursue this offseason.
Calvin Johnson is following in the footsteps of some of the NFL's greatest players by announcing his early retirement.
According to one report, Calvin Johnson has informed the Detroit Lions of his plans to retire from the game of football.
The Houston Texans made a lot of mistakes in 2015 even though they won their division, but these five stood out as the worst.
Ray Rice is still looking for another chance in the NFL, and the New York Jets have reportedly discussed signing him.
The New York Jets will enter the 2016 NFL Draft with plenty of needs, and will have to plug some holes through the draft. Myles Jack and these four other prospects would be nice fits with the Jets.
By keeping Mike Mularkey as their full-time head coach, the Tennessee Titans have made a commitment to being one of the worst teams in the NFL next season.
