Power Ranking 10 Worst Contracts in National Football League

Embed from Getty Images Remember when Colin Kaepernick signed a six-year, $126 million contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers? That averages out to $21 million per season, but the reality is that the structure of NFL contracts means the heart of the contract is the guaranteed money.

SwartzSports 2016 NFL Midseason Awards and Updated Super Bowl Prediction

Embed from Getty Images The New England Patriots are dominating the NFL, Drew Brees is on pace for another 5,000-yard season, and the Cleveland Browns can’t win a game. Just as we expected. Then again, Tony Romo may have lost his starting job forever, J.J. Watt is out for the season, and the Oakland Raiders are actually a terrific football team.

With a 4-3 record, the Eagles are nearing the halfway point of what has been a typical rollercoaster Eagles season.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman Early Favorite for Executive of the Year

Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz.  I could write his name 500 times in a row, 100 times for each touchdown pass he’s thrown so far this season, and it would probably be one of the best articles some of you have ever read. Maybe that reflects on my writing style, but I think it’s more proof that this city is completely infatuated with its new…
