The 2018 NFL Season ended with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots defeating the L.A. Rams at Super Bowl 53 to capture their teams 6th Championship. Tom Brady has surely cemented his name in the history books with his 6th Super Bowl ring and with a TD-to-INT of 517–171 this was never a topic of debate for many NFL Fans. The current offseason has led way too many interesting story-lines. Another QB to surely take some of the conversation off the previously mentioned Brady, is 2019 First Overall selection, Kyler Murray. Murray was a highly touted prospect while playing for the Oklahoma Sooners (2017 and 2018) and capturing the 2018 Heisman Memorial Trophy as the best collegiate football player in the country. The Cardinals have since shown their belief (and some confirmation in his abilities) in Murray with their four-year contract agreement worth $35 million, with a team option for a fifth. It includes a signing bonus of more than $23 million. Another headline grabbing off season transaction was the blockbuster trade of one of the best players in the NFL at any position in Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham was traded to the Cleveland Browns for SS Jabrill Peppers, G Kevin Zeitler, and 2019 1st-round (No. 17) and 3rd-round (No. 95) selections. The Browns will look to improve on their 7–8–1 record in 2018 and end their franchise-record and league-high 16-year playoff drought on the back of one of the most dangerous offenses with players like OBJ, Jarvis Landry, Baker Mayfield and Kareem Hunt. Needless to say, their stock has risen, and the current futures lines have Cleveland paying +1400. Leading as the favorite to win Super Bowl 54 is the current Defending Champion Patriots at +700.
