New England's Spending Spree, Bucs Prepare to Run it Back, Saints Begin Post-Brees Era

The NFL's paradoxical "legal tampering" period has begun with both unusual activity and non-activity. This week on the Weak-Side Podcast, Conor and Jenny discuss the early free-agency headlines, including...*The Patriots made an uncharacteristic splash as soon as free agency opened, signing Matt Judon, Jalen Mills, Davon Godchaux and Jonnu Smith (plus Nelson Agholor after we recorded the show). What does this tell us about Bill Belichick's path forward after missing the playoffs last season?*Drew Brees officially retired Sunday, creating a void that will be hard to replace. We know Taysom Hill is in the Saints' 2021 plans; will any other QBs be as well?*The Buccaneers re-signed Shaq Barrett, who joins Chris Godwin and Lavonte David as key free agents from the Super Bowl team who will be staying put. Can Tom Brady and the Bucs run it back in 2021?*Plus, The Orracle predicts a dream team-y 2021, and the Vrentas Consensus weighs in on what position group will account for the most important free-agent signings.Loyal listeners, we want to keep hearing from you!
