Fri Feb 26, 2021 --from FFMastermind.com

The Pittsburgh Steelers official website reports Steelers owner Art Rooney II says the Steelers still believe that QB Ben Roethlisberger is a Super Bowl-caliber quarterback. "We think Ben played at a high level last year," Rooney said. "We won our division and set a franchise record for most consecutive wins to open a season, so there was a lot of good stuff. Ben was as disappointed as anybody the way it ended. That last game is just hard to swallow, and I think in part Ben wants to come back and leave on a high note. We're still confident he has the ability to do that. His arm, I would say, is as strong or almost as strong as ever, so I think he’s certainly capable of getting the job done. Part of the concern is putting a [competitive] team around him, and we had a good discussion about that. We know there are still a lot of pieces to the puzzle that still have to fall into place this season, and we're hard at work trying to make that happen."

-- Russell Wilson Watch --

-- Source: Tension Between Russell Wilson & Seahawks Has Grown --
Thu Feb 25, 2021 --from FFMastermind.com

The Athletic reports a source says tension has grown between QB Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks coaching staff regarding Wilson's desire to essentially be the offense, like QB Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City. That motivation drove the #LetRussCook phenomenon early in the season. However, HC Pete Carroll freaked out after a turnover-fest against the Bills (four from Wilson) and another subpar performance against the Rams (three more Wilson turnovers). It's unclear whether the unnamed source is a Seahawks source. If it is, it suggests that the Seahawks should indeed try to finagle a major trade package from a team who views Wilson the way Wilson views Wilson. If it is, it also suggests that the Seahawks should be more discreet about their true feelings, since if that's how they regard Wilson then maybe a huge trade offer isn't justified. That's really what this comes down to. If the Seahawks view Wilson as an all-time great, they should treat him that way. If they don't, they should trade him to a team that does, since that team would put together a trade offer that the Seahawks would regard as one they can't refuse.

NBC Sports' Peter King reports the Carolina Panthers could offer RB Christian McCaffrey, QB Teddy Bridgewater, WR Robbie Anderson and first-round and second-round picks in 2021 (eighth and 39th overall), a first-round pick in 2022 and third-round pick in 2023 in exchange for Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson.

FFMastermind.com's Michael Nazarek believes any deal that includes McCaffrey from the Panthers would be a mistake.
