The Las Vegas Raiders traded WR Bryan Edwards and a 2023 7th Round Pick to the Falcons in exchange for a 2023 5th Round Pick. Edwards was a third-round selection by the Raiders in 2020, he didn't play much his rookie season due to injuries and last season in 2021 he caught 34 receptions for 571 yards and 3 Touchdowns. With the hiring of new HC Josh McDaniels, it was hard seeing Bryan Edwards having much of a role in the offense so by being traded to Atlanta Edwards has the chance to make an immediate impact. The Atlanta Falcons add another big body WR to go along with Drake London and Auden Tate.

In 2021 New Orleans finished with a 9-8 record barely missing out on the postseason despite having many injuries to several starters including starting QB Jameis Winston who returns this season. Sean Payton recently announced his retirement and Dennis Allen will take over as the Saints new HC retaining almost the entire coaching staff. The Saints despite losing Marcus Williams and Terron Armstead still improved by upgrading the WR position and signing several key players on both sides of the ball. JT Sports discusses why he feels the New Orleans Saints are going under the radar heading into the upcoming 2022 NFL season.

The Minnesota Vikings hired Kevin O' Connell to become their next Head Coach. O'Connell spent the previous two seasons as the Los Angeles Rams OC playing a critical role in game planning and designing the offense. He takes over a very talented Vikings team with talent on both sides of the ball and with his innovative play-calling, he could help elevate Kirk Cousins's game to the next level. JT Sports gives his first-year expectations for Kevin O' Connell with the Minnesota Vikings.

Josh McDaniels long time OC of the New England Patriots returns to the AFC West as the Head Coach for the Las Vegas Raiders. McDaniels last stint as Head Coach was with the Denver Broncos from 2009-2010 compiling an (11-17) record and he was eventually fired. After over a decade McDaniels gets another opportunity as Head Coach for a Raiders team that is coming off a surprising 10-7 season that saw them make the postseason for the first time since 2015. In arguably the toughest division in the NFL, JT Sports gives his first-year expectations for Josh McDaniels with the Las Vegas Raiders.
