This NFL season brought a lot of interesting aspects to the table. The Cowboys emerged as the front-runners of the NFL, along with the Patriots, Falcons, and Chiefs. Though there were great times this season, there are certain players who didn't enjoy their time in the NFL season, or just didn't succeed. The NFL as a brand wants players to be in the best position to succeed, and for them to enjoy their careers. Though the NFL is a big corporation that employs a lot of workers, they are known to be particularly rude towards players. If an individual doesn't like his team situation, he may request a trade, or maybe he will end up being released regardless. This list is of players who struggled, or didn't fit within their team's system. It is likely very obvious who is going to appear on this list, and you, the readers, will understand why they are on this list. Some of the players who need a change are superstars or at least used to be. Some of these guys are merely solid players who maybe haven't yet achieved superstar status because of their situation. Anyway here are 15 NFL Players who NEED a change this offseason, comedic or severe as it sounds.

Here are 15 NFL Players who NEED a change this off-season.
15 Marvin Jones
14 Derrick Henry
Henry is stuck behind DeMarco Murray, who has now emerged as the fantastic running back that he once was in Dallas. Murray had a rough year in Philadelphia but is back on track. Henry was fantastic in college, and his talents should be used elsewhere. He is a bulky back who has strength and agility. Though he may lack significant speed, Henry is a "Frank Gore"-like back who can power through defenses. Some potential landing spots for his talent could be Philadelphia, a city in need of a young running back.
13 Tyrod Taylor
The Bills offense isn't the right one for Taylor. This guy can run and needs a protective offense line that doesn't get penalties 24/7. Taylor had a great year in 2015, but was nursing an injury this year. He had a rough year with Rex Ryan, and so did the entire Bills organization. It seems probable that he should want to continue his career elsewhere, maybe as a backup on another team. Taylor isn't necessarily meant to be a first string QB.
12 Jeremy Langford
I'm a pretty big advocate of this guy. I think he is on the wrong team, this being the Bears. He had an awesome year when Matt Forte was injured last season, and killed it for fantasy football owners. He hasn't produced under the shaky Bears offensive line this year, and Jordan Howard has. Langford should request a trade maybe, though he's not worth a whole lot. It would really do him well to be behind a solid offensive line, or an average one.
11 DeAndre Hopkins
10 Philip Dorsett
9 Jeremy Maclin
Maclin started the year as an average player, and just declined from there. The Chiefs have been riding the young prospect Tyreek Hill. Hill has been unbelievable in the past couple weeks, helping Kansas City get some huge wins. Maclin was the top guy over in Philadelphia but while this is true, his team is doing very well right now. Alex Smith is showing pocket control as a QB. Maclin would do fairly well on a team that had a more fast-paced offensive attack.
8 Jimmy Garoppolo
7 Tim Hightower
Hightower might have played better than Mark Ingram this regular season. In terms of his fantasy football value, he was a steal from the waiver wire. Tim got a great opportunity from Sean Payton, and proved valuable. I would be shocked if other organizations didn't make a run for Hightower. He proved that he can be VERY valuable out of the backfield, even without the presence of a fantastic offensive line. He is similar to Laurence Maroney in my opinion.
6 DeAngelo Williams
5 Jordan Reed
Jordan Reed has been on the Redskins for an eternity it seems like. And though he has his fair share of injury problems, he should want to leave Washington already. I find the Redskins boring, not multi-dimensional enough for Reed. Reed is a top three tight end in football, but doesn't get to perform on the level he can for the Redskins. On another team, with more talent around him, he could really flourish. Reed on the Cowboys? Imagine that.
4 Eric Decker
Decker went on IR earlier this year. Regardless, he is stuck in a horrible system. Fitzpatrick sucks, and the Jets just can't find a groove in the AFC East, or a QB. Decker would be smart to get out of this situation as soon as possible, and escape Todd Bowles. He is an elite receiver who deserves to have a talented or somewhat talented guy throwing him the ball. In 2015, Decker had 12 touchdowns. With another team, he could put up those numbers and then some.
3 Jay Cutler
2 Josh Gordon
Josh Gordon has said that he wishes to stop using drugs and fully focus on football. Hopefully, this is true because the guy was one of the best receivers when he was playing in the league. Gordon should go to another team, maybe one with a nice city. I could see a change of scenery being beneficial to Gordon. With a solid QB and some palm trees in his sight, he could return to his intensely athletic position in sports.
I would like to see him go to a team that would be very strict with him but also have a good passer. Gordon, like Hopkins, hasn't had a good QB, but with one his style will be totally different.
1 Tony Romo
Many thought Romo would NEVER leave Dallas. Why would he? But now it has come to a crossroads for him, a potential time for change. Dallas has found their QB, a rookie Pro Bowler by the name of Dak Prescott. They have also found their flow, killing it in the regular season, and earning home field advantage in this year's NFL playoffs. Now Romo needs to decide where he would like to be. Does he want to be a backup for his franchise, or move on to start elsewhere? He should move on for sure.
The Broncos need a QB badly, and Romo would fill the spot better than Jay Cutler -- or any free agent. Romo is still an elite QB, and with a couple of Pro Bowl receivers, he could lead the Broncos to new heights. Maybe we could see a Broncos/Cowboys matchup in Super Bowl LII.
