In this Tuesday’s NFL news: the Jets acquire Joe Flacco from the Eagles, Cam Akers could return to the Rams in the postseason, the Cowboys recover Michael Gallup from IR, and more. Don’t miss the NFL news.

Jets acquire Joe Flacco from Eagles

This Monday the team change of a veteran quarterback was confirmed. Via Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Jets acquired QB Joe Flacco from the Eagles in exchange for a conditional sixth-round pick for the 2022 NFL Draft that can become a fifth-round pick depending on Flacco’s playing time in New York.

The decision makes too much sense for the Jets as QB Zach Wilson will be out for 2-4 weeks due to a posterior cruciate ligament injury suffered in last Sunday’s game against New England, and the depth chart The team at the position is among the weakest in the league with only quarterbacks Mike White and Josh Johnson on the roster of 53.

Also, Flacco returns to a team he already knows. After having played from 2008 to 2018 with the Ravens and another year with the Broncos, in 2020 he was part of the Jets, where he started in 4 games and threw 864 total yards, 6 TDs and 3 INTs in 74 completed shipments. However, during his stay he worked under Adam Gase, and now, with Robert Saleh as head coach, he will arrive at an unknown system.

Finally, in the Eagles, the one who came out winning is QB Gardner Minshew II, who last August was acquired by Philadelphia from Jacksonville, and will now have the opportunity to act as a direct substitute for QB Jalen Hurts. Which team took the best part of this trade?

The Rams could have Cam Akers back for the postseason

No team is injury free in the NFL and the Rams know it. Before even starting the 2021 season, the team lost to RB1 Cam Akers due to a ruptured Achilles tendon. Yet 14 weeks later, as Akers continues to rehab, the Rams are “cautiously optimistic” that they can have him back for the postseason.

“You don’t want to be presumptuous, but if we are able to reach the playoffs (…) the expectation is that Cam is available to play,” HC Sean McVay told Jourdan Rodrigue de “He’s on his way to do that (…) unless you saw the scar, you wouldn’t notice any kind of problem. You are attacking rehab in the right way. He is doing very well. I think the plan is that if we can play beyond the regular season, we will get Cam back this year and he will be playing in the playoffs. “

An eventual return of Akers in the postseason – assuming the Rams (5-1) get their ticket – would be extremely good news for Los Angeles, who placed their star running back on the Injured Reserve on July 28 after suffering the Injury off the team premises.

In 2020, the University of Florida graduate ran for 625 total yards and 2 TDs on 145 carries in his rookie season, and is still expected to, coming back from his mishap, become the leader of Los Angeles’ running game by many years to come. With Akers on the field, would the Rams be clear contenders for Super Bowl LVI?

Jimmy Garoppolo will remain the starting QB of the 49ers

The 49ers were recently humiliated at home against the Colts in SNF Week 7 in what has so far been QB Jimmy Groppolo’s worst game of the season by completing only 16 of 27 passes for 181 yards, 1 TD and 2. INT, however, in San Francisco, HC Kyle Shanahan has no plans to replace him. Garoppolo will remain the starting quarterback even with QB Trey Lance’s planned return to team practices this Wednesday:

“We didn’t go into the game thinking Jimmy Garoppolo was one game away from losing his job,” said Shanahan, via Jennifer Lee Chan of “Trey hasn’t practiced in two weeks, so when he gets back, he’ll probably be limited. Odds are, when it comes to the game plan, you’re not going to start rotating quarterbacks because it’s not open competition right now. “

Everything indicates then that, despite his terrible game the previous Sunday, Jimmy G is guaranteed his position for at least one more week. In the last 11 games that Garoppolo has started he has thrown 13 TDs, 9 INTs and the 49ers are 5-6, yet Shanahan still believes that Garoppolo is the one who gives San Francisco the best chances to win.

For his part, Lance, who injured his knee in his first game as a starter in the Week 5 loss to Arizona, will have to keep waiting to fully take over the team’s offense. What are the 49ers aspiring to this year with Jimmy Garoppolo as the starter?

Cowboys get Michael Gallup back from IR

At 5-1 the Cowboys currently rank as leaders of the NFC East, however, we cannot forget that in Week 1, their only loss this season, they also lost one of their key men on offense: the WR. Michael Gallup. However, to the good news of the team, this Monday it was confirmed that they recovered Gallup from the Injury Reserve after healing the calf strain he previously carried.

With this designation, Gallup will be able to return to practice with Dallas for a maximum period of 21 days before reaching the deadline in which they will have to decide if it will be activated to the roster of 53 or will be out for the rest of the 2021 NFL Season; he can be activated at any point in that time window and could play as early as Week 8 against the Vikings.

Gallup had 4 receptions for 36 yards before getting injured in the Cowboys’ first game of the season, yet in his previous three years with Dallas he has recorded 162 total receptions for 2,493 yards and 13 TDs, so without a doubt his return would be a great enhancer to the offense commanded by QB Dak Prescott. How would this team benefit from Gallup’s return to the roster?

DJ Chark, out the rest of the 2021 NFL Season

In more NFL news, the 2021 season just got worse for the Jaguars. WR DJ Chark was placed on Injured Reserve in Week 4 following a broken ankle suffered against the Bengals, and on Monday, HC Urban Meyer confirmed that Chark will remain out of the year as a result of the injury. .

For Jacksonville, who are 1-5, this announcement is devastating. The team expected this 2021 Chark to make a quality leap towards the league’s elite wide receivers after registering a total of 1,714 total yards and 13 TDs in 126 receptions between 2019 and 2020.

However, now it is the opposite. Chark only caught 7 passes for 154 yards and 2 TDs this season, in which he was playing under his last year of contract, so his future with the Jaguars is currently more than uncertain, and if he wants to change teams by 2022, You may have to settle for a less than expected contract to show that you are still productive after the injury. On which team will we see DJ Chark play next year?
