NFL rumors: Post-Tom Brady Buccaneers world is pure sadness, what is Aaron Rodgers even doing?
The latest NFL rumors feature a sad post-Tom Brady landscape for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and an absolute shenanigans coming from Aaron Rodgers’ home world of California.
With the legal tampering period opening in less than 24 hours, NFL rumors were heated during the second weekend in March, well.
All eyes are on the clock because once 12:00 PM ET hits on Monday, March 13, the suspended free agents can talk to and possibly sign with other teams, unofficially, of course. Players who were already independent agents prior to the start of the new league year may have linked up elsewhere. Look no further than Derek Carr leaving the Las Vegas Raiders for the New Orleans Saints…
With spring just around the corner, let’s sink our teeth into this delicious batch of NFL rumors.

NFL rumours: The Lions have some serious competition for Jamal Williams
Last year saw Jamal Williams lead the league in rushing points with 17 points. The Green Bay Packers comeback saw a career renaissance with Dan Campbell, man, on the Detroit Lions. Although the Lions would love to send him back to free agency. Go Long’s Tyler Dunn reports that teams like the Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, and New York Jets have interest.
Nugget free agency to pass. There is a shared interest in Jamaal Williams returning to Detroit, but a source told me today that Buffalo, Cincinnati and the New York Jets are very interested in returning to Detroit.
Williams led the NFL with 17 rushing tackles last year.

All four clubs are of a playoff caliber, with the Bengals and Bills both sitting at the top tier of the AFC with the reigning Super Bowl champions Kansas City Chiefs. New York already has Bryce Hall, but he’s coming off a serious injury. Cincinnati could move away from Joe Mixon, so the Bengals’ interest in Williams makes sense, too. For Buffalo, the Bills have to do something to improve their running back.
Although they previously used draft picks on the likes of James Cook, Zac Moss, and Devin Singletary, Buffalo tends to use quarterback Josh Allen on every play, pass, or run. The Bills were even traded to Nyheim Hines last season, but even he couldn’t help balancing their rushing offense. By signing Williams in free agency, the Bills could add a bell cow.
One way or another, Williams is about to get paid so the Lions better be willing to pay him.
What does Aaron Rodgers do?
