OK, Good work, KC. Now 2-1 in the Super Bowl.

So, who do the "experts think will do well next year?
Same as always. I'm beginning to wonder if they really are experts.

IMO, AFC, it's KC vs. Baltimore again. I don't see New England recovering until they figure out Brady's replacement, and their defense was exposed down the stretch. Several teams could leap up with a key component now and again, but I don't see much change in postseason contenders.

NFL, it's SF, New Orleans (if Brees is back), Green Bay, Seattle, with the latter two needing some big talent infusions in the draft to take the next step forward (and Rodgers needs to get back to form).

NO was still really solid with Bridgewater, so I don't think Brees is a mandatory component to their success. I've heard some people say Hill might be a viable candidate, but I think they're insane.

Does Mahomes need a new $40M a year contract or does he have a year left on the rookie deal? Might decide when the KC window closes and how quickly it closes.

49ers will have a few cap decisions on who to extend but they should still be good next year.

I have no clue what other teams cap situation looks like but with Lamar still on the rookie deal, the Ravens should be good again.

A lot of older QBs could be doing the shuffle and that could alter the landscape quite a bit.

He has 1 year left on rookie deal, but the rumors are they're going to extend him early. I guess you can be creative on contract structures to keep the early cap hits lower, but he's expected to get $40M a year.

Chris Jones also apparently wants Aaron Donald money (6 years, $135M, with $87M guaranteed).

If they do absolutely nothing, including keeping Mahomes at his guaranteed $5.4M, they only have $19M in room for 2020. Cutting Watkins (or negotiating him down) gives them an extra $14M. But they also have a bunch of players who are free agents, including several members of the DLine rotation and secondary.

NFL contracts are weird though. You can give a solid signing bonus and low early salaries to keep the early cap hits low, and worry about later years later, then convert the later high salaries to signing bonuses on contract extensions, etc., and never truly have to pay the piper re: QB salary cap until the end of his career, where you just eat it and rebuild (e.g. NY Giants, Eli Manning)

Mahomes has 5m cap hit from rookie deal in 2020 and 5th yr option in 2021 (franchise tag money so ~30m or so).

Look at who's not shelling out massive dollars for their QB and has money to spend on other positions. Those are your early leading contenders.
