Key Offseason Acquisitions

Arik Armstead, DL (re-signed, five-years, $85 million); Travis Benjamin, WR; Ben Garland, C (re-signing, one-year, $2.25 million); Jimmie Ward, S (re-signing, three-years, $28.5 million); Trent Williams, OT

In an incredible turnaround from their 4-win 2018 season, the San Francisco 49ers posted a 13-3 record in 2019 and placed first in the NFC West, their playoff run taking them all the way to the Big Game, which they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 20-31.

By re-signing Garland at the center and bringing in highly coveted tackle Trent Williams on a trade with the Washington Redskins, the 49ers’ front office made sure that Garoppolo would have plenty of time to throw the ball safely in 2020 and running back Kenyon Drake would have decent holes to slip through.

And just when you think San Francisco’s brutal defensive line couldn’t get any scarier, they actually traded down a spot and still snagged the highly sought South Carolina defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw in the first round of the draft, the team’s quarterback-hunting potential in 2020 now potentially legendary.

Key Offseason Acquisitions

Phillip Dorsett, WR; Quinton Dunbar, CB; B.J. Finney, OL; Jacob Hollister, TE (second-round tender); Bruce Irvin, Edge; Mike Iupati, OG; Cedric Ogbuehi, T; Greg Olsen, TE; Jarran Reed, DT (re-signed, two-years, $23 million); Geno Smith, QB

For the eighth time in the ten years Pete Carroll has been their head coach, the Seattle Seahawks did well enough in 2019 to make the playoffs, their 11-5 record and second place in the NFC West good enough to score a Wild Card spot, which they parlayed into a Divisional Playoffs matchup with the Green Bay Packers, losing 23-28.

To slow down the rush against quarterback Russell Wilson (he was under pressure in over 40% of his dropbacks), the Seahawks used free agency to bring in some muscle, namely center B.J. Finney, tackle Cedric Ogbuenhi and guard Mike Iupati.

Seattle used the draft to add depth to their 26th ranked defense, selecting Texas Tech linebacker Jordyn Brooks in the first round and Tennessee defensive end Darrell Taylor in the second, with veteran free agent edge rusher Bruce Irvin also brought back (he spent the first four years of his NFL career in Seattle) for 2020.

Key Offseason Acquisitions

Austin Blythe, OL; Michael Brockers, DT (re-signed, three-years, $31.5 million); Leonard Floyd, Edge; A’Shawn Robinson, DT; Andrew Whitworth, OL (re-signed, three-years, $30 million)

Key offseason loss: Todd Gurley, RB (released)

For the first time in his three years as the Los Angeles Rams’ head coach, Sean McVay failed to lead his team to the playoffs in 2019, settling for a 9-7 record and a third-place finish in the NFC West.

With injuries and roster changes taking their toll on the Rams’ offensive line, rebuilding it to an acceptable level took precedence this offseason, the team using free agency to bring in guard Austin Blythe while re-signing talented left tackle Andrew Whitworth for three more years.

A big hole in the backfield was created once running back Todd Gurley was released in March, so the Rams will count on veteran Malcolm Brown to step up and into that role, plus they’ll keep an eye on the rookie they snagged in the second round of the draft, Florida State running back Cam Akers.

Key Offseason Acquisitions

De’Vondre Campbell, LB; Kenyan Drake, RB (transition tag); Larry Fitzgerald, WR (re-signed, one-year, $11 million); Marcus Gilbert, OL (re-signing, one-year, $1.05 million); DeAndre Hopkins, WR; Devon Kennard, LB; Jordan Phillips, DT

As was expected, the Arizona Cardinals led by their rookie head coach Kliff Kingsbury along with their rookie quarterback Kyler Murray lost double-digit games in 2019, eventually posting a 5-10 record and a last-place finish in the NFC West.

Murray was tied for most times sacked in league with 48, but with the exception or re-signing right tackle Marcus Gilbert for one year, Arizona did not seem to address their offensive line needs head-on in free agency this offseason, though they did get Murray an exceptional deep threat target by trading for veteran receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

They did use the draft, however, to add depth to the tackle position, snagging Houston’s Josh Jones with the 72nd overall pick, and that was after selecting the top linebacker in this 2020 class, Clemson’s Isaiah Simmons, in the first round, a definite upgrade to the roster and an immediate starter.
