Four Signings to Forecast the 2020 NFL Season

The NFL remains a popular pick for sports fans and, with all the pre-season news that has come via the NFL Draft and other factors so far, this one is among the most highly anticipated ever. Here, we take a look at a few signings that will certainly have a big influence on the next NFL season.

Hopkins the Cardinal

DeAndre Hopkins has been traded from Houston to Arizona, effectively in exchange for David Johnson. Playing alongside fellow stars such as Larry Fitzgerald and Kyler Murray, Hopkins will likely bring plenty of appeal to the Cardinals. He’s a reasonable pick to top the season’s catches held and yards made.

The outspoken wide receiver certainly isn’t short on confidence in the public’s eye.

“I definitely think I’m the best. I know I’m the best. I don’t complain. I don’t make excuses. I go out there and work,” Hopkins said recently on Jalen & Jacoby.

Early days, indeed, but the Cardinals are priced at 51 with Sport Nation for the 2020-21 season win. For significantly shorter odds with the same bookie, there’s the Kansas City Chiefs at 7.50 and Baltimore Ravens at 8.00. Betting on the NFL is a notable pastime that goes along with the sport and checking out bonuses from new bookies could be rewarding when placing bets on season and transfer specials.

Bigging up with Brady

In one of the biggest moves the NFL has ever seen in its long, illustrious history, Tom Brady has left the New England Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He has received a two-year contract with $50 million guaranteed at Tampa Bay – and up to $4.5 million per year for incentives based on performances, which he will probably bank each and every time. The deal he has struck also has no-trade and no-tag clauses. He, indeed, negotiated well there.

“It would be of course impossible to sum up everything that Tom did in 20 years into a comment, then or now,” said Patriots coach Bill Belichick recently.”

“And I’m sure we’ll be talking about him for years and decades to come. For right now, we’re moving forward and will continue to put the best team together in 2020.”

Sport Nation and 22Bet have the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers among the outside favourites to advance to and win the next Super Bowl. They’ll have stiff competition elsewhere, though.

Sanders now a Saint

Another wide receiver in Emmanuel Sanders is off to the New Orleans Saints. They got him for a two-year contract worth a whopping $16 million contract. The Saints have also brought back Malcolm Jenkins. They, too, have retained Drew Brees for now. That’s a talent trio if ever there was one – and sure to have a huge impact on the Saints’ chase for the title. The Saints are priced at 14.00 for that outright win.

“Truthfully, I think people put way too much emphasis on chemistry. I think the ultimate thing that me and Drew have in common is that we both love the game of football,” Sanders said of his playing partnership with Brees.

“If you take guys that love the grind of football and who are passionate about football, it should click regardless if they have the proper talent. I know Drew loves football and I know I love football.

“I just feel like that chemistry is going to be there from the jump because we are both down to work our butts off because we both know what we’re trying to accomplish and that’s [winning a] Super Bowl ring.”

Once a Ram, now a Raider

In closing, there’s a quality linebacker headed to the Las Vegas Raiders in Cory Littleton. His new three-year contract is reportedly worth up to $36 million. At a mere 26 years old, he has plenty of years to continue at the Raiders what he achieved at the Rams – and then some.
