Winner: Defensive Tackle Market

A year ago, the wide receiver market exploded. Eleven different wideouts signed deals with an average annual salary between $20 and $30 million. That unofficially made wide receiver the fifth-ranked position behind quarterback, offensive tackle, edge rusher and cornerback.

The defensive tackle market experienced something similar this offseason, though not quite at the same level.

It is extremely difficult to achieve tackles that are consistently disruptive. Therefore, one signed a big-money deal in free agency, while others got contract extensions.

The Philadelphia Eagles were unable to re-sign Javon Hargrave, who quickly agreed to terms on a four-year, $84 million deal with San Francisco 49ers at the beginning of the free agency. In the meantime Tennessee TitansJeffrey Simmons, New York Giants‘ Dexter Lawrence and Washington’s commanders‘ Daron Payne signed all new contracts ranging from $21.9 to $23.5 million annually.

Market demands set the baseline for positional value, and the next in line for new deals — the Kansas City Chiefs’ Chris Jones, New York Jets‘ Quinnen Williams, Cincinnati Bengals’ DJ Reader and Miami DolphinsChristian Wilkins – will benefit greatly.

Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes won’t define his legacy with Super Bowl wins

In a extensive podcast interview with Associated Press reporter Rob Maadi on Wednesday, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes discussed whether his team can be the first repeat Super Bowl wins since Tom Brady and the New England Patriots achieved a second consecutive championship following the 2004 season.

But the league’s two-time MVP (and two-time Super Bowl MVP) admits it’s not that easy to do.

“I think it’s so difficult because there’s so much player movement these days,” he explained. “I mean, you see so many different guys [from] free agency or trade – and you [have] guys coming in the draft who are good players. So every team gets better and better every year.

“And it’s hard to win the Super Bowl. I think I’ve noticed that from my first win to my second. You can do everything the right way — and you don’t win. So to be able to repeat that, you just have to keep working and working and working – and try to put yourself in a position to win the big games.

“I’m confident in us because we’ve had a lot of guys coming back now that have won a Super Bowl — [that have] been in the big moment. But at the same time we have to go out and prove it. It starts – literally – next week.”
