Blockbuster Wilson, Wentz, Mack trades set in motion the lead-up to free agency

When it was reported that Aaron Rodgers would be staying in Green Bay on Tuesday morning, you may have thought that would have been the biggest NFL story of the week. And boy, how you would have been mistaken.

Charles Robinson & Frank Schwab react to the three major trades this week, all in the lead-up to free agency on today's podcast. Starting off in the AFC West, the guys talk about how the Denver Broncos trade for Russell Wilson came together & the west coast arms race that led the Los Angeles Chargers to trade for Khalil Mack a few days later. But can either team dethrone Kansas City?

In the NFC, the Washington Commanders traded for former Colts QB Carson Wentz in a mostly head-scratching move as Wentz has been one of the most frustrating players in football the last few seasons. The guys talk about the lack of a trade market for Wentz & what Indianapolis does next now that they've re-entered the QB wilderness.

Finally, Charles & Frank talk about some of the big free agents who will look to be signed by new teams next week including Allen Robinson, Bobby Wagner, Terron Armstead, J.C. Jackson, and very likely, Amari Cooper.
