Seattle trades with the Jets for Sheldon Richardson
This is fairly new news as I am writing this. The Seahawks have traded Jermaine Kearse and a 2018 second round pick to the Jets for Sheldon Richardson. I like this trade for both teams. The Jets add some talent to their offensive arsenal which sorely needed help. This should also help for whenever they decide to draft a quarterback. The Jets also gain some valuable draft capitol, which is a big deal or a rebuilding team. The Seahawks also add a really good player to their defensive line, which helps bolster their roster for another playoff run.

Joe Haden signs for the Steelers and Martavis Bryant returns
This is an incredibly over-hyped signing by Pittsburgh in my opinion. Joe Haden has not played well at all for the last two seasons. Perhaps he can regain his Pro-Bowl form, but nothing has shown me that he will do that. Martavis Bryant was also cleared for full activity, which is huge for the Steelers as a number 2 option behind Antonio Brown.
