Players Fans Should Keep an Eye on This 2017 NFL Season
The 2017 NFL season begins in September. Similar to all other seasons in the past, every American sports fan is in high anticipation, not only because Super Bowl LI champs New England Patriots will start things off against the Kansas City Chiefs, but also because there is a lot of excitement over the new crop of players who came in after the recently concluded NFL Draft. And of course, there’s the fantasy league, NFL free picks, and people trying to get some heads-up on early betting odds.
But instead of talking about the early contenders and possible team match-ups and traditional rivalries, what if we discuss the top players to watch in the upcoming season?
1 – Robert Griffin III
The cat-quick quarterback played for the Cleveland Browns last season, but the team cut him at the last minute before the new season begins. Although recently cut, it does not mean that he’s done. A recipient of the 2011 Heisman trophy, it’s hard to imagine him sitting out the new season and if we were to bet on it, we’ll go for him finding a new team sooner than later.
2 – Matt Ryan
Matt Ryan is one of the most popular football players in the NFL today. However, it’s fair to say that his popularity is also linked to the historic comeback made by New England against his team, the Atlanta Falcons in the recent Super Bowl. But if you’re to look at Ryan’s setback last season, it might very well be the reason why everyone should give him a closer look this season since he’ll return a hungrier and more desperate quarterback for one of the NFL’s best teams.
3 – Michael Thomas
The New Orleans Saints’ young and promising wide receiver had 92 catches/1,137 yards last season, which obviously are numbers worthy of a closer look in the upcoming season. The Saints look to improve their offense in the new season and that right there is an indication that Thomas will be filling in a bigger role. If there is one good proof of the enormous potential found in Thomas, it has to be the fact that during his rookie season, he managed to break franchise records for a rookie in touchdowns, receptions, and receiving yards.
4 – Black Bortles
Although Bortles had a rough time last season, the 25-year old has more than enough time to make up for it this year. The good thing going for the third overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft is the fact that he is well-loved as the quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars; he just needs to learn how to be mature enough to carry the responsibility of leading his team this season.
Predictions Of The 2017 NFL Season – Interesting Facts About It That You Should Know of
It will not be too long until the regular season of NFL, or most commonly known by many as Super Bowl, to come kicking off but before it officially opens its season, we will first be talking about the predictions we have on what could possibly happen on its 2017 season. If you are wondering why we are talking about predictions right now, well, that would be because we want to have something to share to you while waiting for football to return.
Every single year, new surprises and upsets come together with it and if you are a bit NFL fan then we are sure that you are already familiar with it and this upcoming season, we are certain that the same thing will still happen. However, even if that is the case, this does not mean that we can no longer make any educated and plausible predictions with regards to how the upcoming NFL season is going to be played out.
The return of the Patriots tot the NFL field is one of the predictions that we will be sharing to you with regards to the upcoming season of the Super Bowl. Yes, we know that the return of the New England Patriots to the NFL stage is not the boldest prediction we will have but then again, this is a very common prediction for a reason. As you may know, the New England Patriots have already claimed the title as one of the best, with the way they won the come-from-behind title in the last season and that does not look like that it will change anytime soon. With the New England Patriots coming out from a post-free agency ranking at number one, they have made it a point to make aggressive move as they return to the big stage.
When it comes to their pass game, they will not only have the return of the great TE Rob Gronkowski but also, they have acquired Brandin Cooks as well. And also, there goes the fact that the Patriots have acquired two cornerbacks with the addition of Malcolm Butler and Stephon Gilmore plus, they have also re-signed one of the best players, Donta Hightower.
Another prediction that we have when it comes to the upcoming season of the Super Bowl is Redskins snagging a Wildcard. While others may argue about the statement we have mentioned earlier on due to the fact that the Redskins lost two of their wide receivers, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, they still have other greats with them who are going to the 2017 NFl season and these are Terrelle Pryor and Josh Docton.
