10 players across the NFL that need a change of scenery
Sometimes for whatever reason, NFL players just don’t work out at a certain location and they need a fresh start elsewhere.
Sometimes a player just needs to find a new home to become something in the NFL. There are mixed results when it comes time for these players to change their uniforms in for new ones but those listed here might not have a choice.
They are struggling at their current location and need to find a new home. Some players just cannot get anything going with a certain team and they just need a new place to get their career going again.
Even though some players do pan-out with their new clubs, many more continue to struggle. No matter if they are draft busts or just getting too old for the game. Some players are just getting to the end of their time in the league and that new place is not a great experience. For many of these players listed, they need to get going either this season or during their next opportunity because the clock is ticking.
Marcus Davenport, EDGE, New Orleans Saints
Now here is a young player that will be searching for a new place to call home after the 2021 season. The Saints traded up for Marcus Davenport a handful of drafts ago and it hasn’t worked out well. They gave up a lot of picks to acquire this player based on his athletic ability. His potential was through the roof when he was coming out of college. The Saints bit and got slapped back when they selected him.
This player just has not been able to become a premier pass rusher of any kind. He could always break out this season but it looks less and less likely by the day. The best season he ever had saw him compile six sacks in 2019. Ever since then it has been small stats and injuries hampering his career. This player just might not be cut out for the NFL but he will likely get a chance to prove himself elsewhere based on his draft profile.
