Welcome to the first edition of The Morning After Huddle, your daily round-up of the top news from around the NFL. Every morning you expect an overview from our staff of what you need to know to stay plugged in.
Here’s what you need to know for today:
- The 2022 NFL Draft happened over the weekend and there was no shortage of surprises. Thursday night, we saw A.J. Brown moving on to the Eagles and Marquise “Hollywood” Brown moving to the Cardinals. (For more on those stories, read here.)
- Although many predicted Malik Willis to be a first round draft pick, he ultimately fell to third round where he was selected by the Tennessee Titans. Titans General Manager Jon Robinson mentioned “He was a player who was just kind of staring at us there, and we were excited when we were able to get up and get him and not get jumped if somebody was coming up.”
- Baker Mayfield remains on the roster of the Cleveland Browns. The Carolina Panthers seemed to be working on a deal for the Browns QB, but instead opted to draft Matt Corral in the third round when talks stalled.
- In other news, Kevin Colbert, GM of the Pittsburgh Steelers, has stepped down after more than 20 years with the team.
That’s a wrap on Monday’s edition. Catch us tomorrow morning for more news.
