The Morning After Huddle: August 31, 2022

We breakdown the biggest NFL news from Tuesday in our latest Morning After Huddle

Welcome to your Wednesday edition of the Morning After Huddle! Did you catch your breath yet? It’s been a wild few days in the NFL.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • After all the drama, the San Francisco 49ers are keeping Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The team does not have a trade partner for the Quarterback. This is leading the team to keep him and restructure his salary. Jimmy has a new deal with a base of $6 and a max value of $15.45 million. This is far from the ideal situation. The 49ers likely help themselves by restructuring his contract. Perhaps a trade partner becomes available.
  • Next up, Jon Gruden is back and he apparently, has something to say. Gruden claims that, despite the mountain of evidence saying otherwise, he is not the man portrayed in his emails. Gruden says he is a ”good person” who attends church. He goes on to say he has made some mistakes and is hopeful he gets another chance. Here’s the thing: you can be all of things and still be honest about the prejudiced and blatantly racist things said. If this was said via email, imagine the things said behind closed doors. When someone shows you who they are, believe them.
  • Finally, your Key Signings and Trades Roundup:
    • TRADE:
      • The New Orleans Saints are sending Safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson to the Eagles for a pick in 2023 and 2024
      • The Raiders are sending Cornerback Trayvon Mullen to the Cardinals for a conditional seventh-round pick
    • Full Slate of League Moves from Tuesday
