Kirk Cousins just changed the landscape in the NFC North

Even though the NFL season ended just over a month ago, we’re already back into the swing of things with free agency. In this article I’ll go over some of the top free agents on the offensive side of the ball, and later I’ll take a look at some moves on defense.

The new league year is upon us, and NFL players are now free to sign with new teams for the upcoming season. A lot of familiar faces are looking for a new home this season, so let’s take a look at who has already signed, and who is left after the dust has settled after the first few days.

Kirk Cousins

The quarterback who was originally drafted as an afterthought by the Redskins the same year that RGIII was selected 2nd overall and was supposed to be the future in Washington. After playing the last two seasons under the franchise tag, the Redskins finally cut ties with the player that they refused to see as the future of their team. This year, Cousins was the biggest name among free agents and with a lot of teams in the market for a capable quarterback he was bound to get paid. After narrowing it down to the Jets and the Vikings, Cousins decided to take his talent to Minneapolis, leaving some money on the table in order to get a shot at a Super Bowl.

What to take from Gemany’s upset win over Canada

If you were one of the dedicated fans up for 7:10am this morning, then you witnessed first hand the disappointing result that the rest of Canada woke up to news of. In the semi-final at the Olympics, the Canadians came up short in their quest for a third consecutive Olympic gold medal after losing to Germany 4-3.

Never Count Out Tom Brady and the Patriots

He did it again. After being held to just 10 points through three quarters of the AFC Championship Game, it was looking like the Jaguars were about to pull off the improbable upset over the Patriots. Turns out Tom Brady had other plans, and not even a broken hand or some stitches could slow him down. Down by 10 in the 4th quarter, it was time for Brady to get the comeback started.

A Tribute To Rene Rancourt

It’s been a long 42 years, but after this season a Boston Bruins legend is calling it a career. Rene Rancourt, who first began to sing the national anthems before Bruins games in 1976, announced yesterday that this would be his last season before retirement. It’s not very often that teams become so attached to a singer, or even have the same singer for every game, but over the years Rancourt has become a fan favourite to Bruins fans everywhere.

I realize you’re thinking “So what? He’s just a singer” but Rancourt has been a staple with the Bruins for almost half a century. In fact, he’s become such an important part of the team that he got his own Stanley Cup ring after the Bruins won in 2011.
