Every NFL Team’s Most Nonsensical QB/RB/WR Roster Move This Offseason

6: Pittsburgh Steelers: Stevan Ridley, RB

The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to avenge their embarrassing divisional playoff loss at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Steelers also have arguably the best running back in Le’Veon Bell (assuming he ever plays for Pittsburgh again). They also have many more offensive weapons like Antonio Brown.

The Steelers re-signed Stevan Ridley and he looks to be a fourth string running back.

He also has had a history of fumbling the ball repeatedly in games and also fumbling the ball in key situations in the game. Meanwhile, they still haven’t signed Bell to an extension.

5: San Francisco 49ers: Signing Jerick McKinnon

The San Francisco 49ers have been making moves the past few seasons that have put them in discussions for a playoff spot in the 2019 playoffs. The 49ers also made a signing in running back Jerick McKinnon that leaves San Francisco fans in disbelief. Carlos Hyde went to Cleveland and their solution was to sign a guy who’s never been anywhere close to being a lead back. The 49ers had way better options at RB back in March, but settled on a guy who at best, is a decent change of pace back on 3rd downs.

4: Seattle Seahawks: Signing Brandon Marshall

The Seattle Seahawks made a really late signing in wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Marshall has been a problem for any team he has been on. He seems to be the type of guy that cares more about his statistics than he does about winning championships.

The Seahawks already have receivers like Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett to compliment Russell Wilson and the running game.

Marshall could be a big factor or a huge disappointment for this new look Seattle Seahawks team. We’re leaning to disappointemnt

3: Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Keeping Ryan Fitzpatrick

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been underwhelming the past few seasons with so much talent on offense. The Buccaneers have been relying on the arm of Jameis Winston and that has not gotten them far. Re-signing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was by far the worst move they could have made. Now yes, Jameis Winston was just given a three game suspension. But after those three games, the Buccaneers are wasting money on keeping Fitzpatrick around. He is at the end of his career and doesn’t have much left in the tank.

2 : Tennessee Titans: Signing Blaine Gabbert

The Tennessee Titans have vastly improved throughout the off-season with the signings of guys like Dion Lewis and Malcolm Butler. They also have signed a guy in Blaine Gabbert that doesn’t really fit into the type of system Tennessee has.

They have a high powered, young, fast offense that likes to move quickly.

Gabbert just doesn’t seem like a guy who can come in and run an offense like Tennessee’s if in case Mariota goes down with an injury, which has happened in all three of his pro years.

1: Washington Redskins: Letting Cousins Walk, Trading For Alex Smith

The Washington Redskins will be switching from the Kirk Cousins to Alex Smith era. For several years, the Redskins refused to commit to Cousins long-term so instead, they finally let him walk and brought in the veteran Alex Smith. While Smith was reliable in Kansas City, that was with a far more talented roster than the one Washington has heading into 2018. The Skins didn’t do enough to surround Alex Smith with the weapons he needs to bring the offense to the next level, which makes this whole QB fiasco all the more baffling.
