The 2023 NFL season is only a few weeks away. Football is almost back. Let’s dive into whether or not we should buy or sell some of the offseason buzz. Just about each team in the NFL has had their share of buzz-worthy events happen to them this offseason, so we could do a buy or sell for each team.
However, I think there are three teams that have made the most noise this offseason, but just because a team made a ton of noise in any given offseason, does not mean they will have that type of success when the season begins. For example, there really is no correlation between spending a ton of money in free agency and success during the season.
Besides that, these three teams made a variety of moves that include massive trades, solid drafts, free agency splashes, and everything in between. Let’s dive into a buy or sell for these three teams ahead of the 2023 NFL season.
2023 NFL Season: Buying or selling offseason buzz for teams
New York Jets: Sell
The New York Jets made arguably the biggest move of the offseason this year when they traded for Aaron Rodgers. I think the Jets gave up too much in this trade, but that is a different story. Not only did the Jets trade for Rodgers, perhaps ending their league-leading playoff skid, I don’t entirely buy their offseason.
Sure, they have signed a slew of Aaron Rodgers’ former teammates and did hire his old offensive coordinator in Nathaniel Hackett, but they’re still the New York Jets, and there was another team last offseason who underwent precisely what the Jets are experiencing now.
The Denver Broncos made a huge trade for a veteran QB last offseason and also hired Nathaniel Hackett. The Broncos had a ton of hype from that and many pegged them as a true playoff team. That all blew up on their face, though.
I don’t think the New York Jets are going to have as bad of a 2023 NFL season as the Denver Broncos did last year, but I don’t think they’re as easily of a playoff team as some may think they are.
