The offseason is a big part of the NFL, all-stars saying bye to their old teams and signing with new teams. General Managers getting fired because they made a bad deal. Or Hall of Famers deciding on whether they should end their wonderful career. All of this is what happens during the NFL offseason, whether it is good or bad it will still happen.


Now let’s jump into the winners and losers of March


AFC Winner of March: Cleveland Browns

After a decent 2018-2019 season, the Cleveland Browns have decided they need to step up their game. In order to step up there game, the Browns decided they need to sign some big players. So this offseason the Cleveland Browns have decided to sign All-Star Wide Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. who is coming of a season with an incredible 1,052 receiving yards with an average of 13.7 yards per catch! In addition to OBJ, the Cleveland Browns have signed another All-Star, Kareem Hunt. Although Hunt is currently suspended, he has rushed for 824 yards on only 181 carries. Now with all the edits, the Browns have made, they are looking forward to winning a championship!


NFC Winner of March: San Francisco 49ers

After a rather disappointing 2018 season, the 49ers look like they are coming back strong. In order to come back strong, the 49ers have had to make many moves to overcome their challenges to potentially get a spot in the playoffs.So… the 49ers added former Atlanta Falcons running back Tevin Coleman, and they also added Tampa Bay Buccaneers star, Kwon Alexander. Now, if the 49ers can fix up their injury report, and they can figure out whether they should keep, or deal star quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, they will e able to come back strong and have a good 2019 season.

AFC Loser of March: Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers have just been unlucky over the 2018 season and this year’s offseason. The NFL has always looked up to the Steelers as one of the most powerful franchises in the game, then they could not win their division to find a spot in the playoffs. The bad luck continues now that two of there top three best players have left the team. Although Leon Bell did not play in the 2018 season throughout his other seasons on the Steelers he has left a long-lasting impact on their organization, and Antonio Brown is unarguably one of the best receivers to play the game of football. Now with two stars gone young players with lots of talent such as Juju Smith-Schuster and James Conner will need to step up there game in order to have a chance at making the playoffs.    


NFC Loser of March: New York Giants


After losing their best player, the Giants are one of the league’s least talented teams. Although they still have star running back Saquon Barkley the Giants have made a big mistake by dealing Odell Beckham Jr. After he posted a season with 1,000+ receiving yards they should have done the best they could do to keep him on the team. Another issue the Giants are facing right now is finding a replacement for Eli Manning. If the receivers step up there game, and the Giants are able to find a good replacement for Eli Manning they could look forward to a decent season, and if they do not then it may as well be the end.
Long gone Giants star Odell Beckham has made lots of contributions to there franchise. Many Giants fans believe they have never seen a greater wide receiver on there team

Now that you know what is going on in the NFL, I suggest you watch out for any bold moves or blockbuster trades.
