  1. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    Have you taken a look at Taven Bryan from Florida? Maybe a second rounder? Regular bullrusher. Also I believe Tomsula is not too heavily invested in the typical NT size requirements. Personally for me Maurice Hurst is the best lineman in the draft followed by Vita.
  2. True but it's still 7 million in dead cap for a guy that has done zero. Not the end of the world it's just I cant believe how ineffective he was.
  3. I remember a lot of us were wanting that one big time guy on the line last year. I was a Hankins guy. I understand why they signed the guys they did for the potential upside but I do not understand why they did not give an immediate out in the contracts. McClain should be cut this year but they hamstrung themselves with a cap hit. I still like McGee as rotational depth but they should be getting a new lineman this year. This may be the year they get Poe or Logan believe it or not.
  4. So after looking at the upcoming FA class for ILB I'm in the camp to let Brown go. Call me crazy but the guy just didn't do it for me. He is a sure tackler and is quick but he can't cover anyone. I think Vigil called a capable defense in his absence in hindsight and there are a lot of young ILB to be had. I know we need help at this position I am not daft but I just think we can do better. All about keeping as clean of a cap as possible and both Cousins and Brown to me, are not worth the contracts they are about to receive.

    This guy gets it. This is going to be my last question for those that love Kirk. Is it worth it in your opinion for him to sign a 27 to 30 million dollar cap hit contract. To be the highest paid player in history. I see a lot of he needs a team around him. Fair point. Where are we getting these team mates at this price? I seriously want to know the rationale at this point.

    I still don't understand why some have to name call or insult others to get their point across on this board. We are all just fans sharing our opinions. People got to be dicks though I dunno. HTTR.

    If 4 or 5 backs go in the first round (which I doubt) then we are going to get an awesome guard or tight end in the second. Someone nice is going to fall out of those groups if the backs explode like that. Mark Andrews fits that bill nicely.

    I guess I just don't understand what I am looking at. I keep going off of the spotrac numbers for the cap hit. I wasn't looking at anything but that for all of the contracts. I wasn't getting into the details of it just looking at the cap hit number itself. http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/detroit-lions/matthew-stafford-6078/

    No I don't think you are being condescending. What I am saying is that there would have to be multiple restructures to get this to happen. If it were one guy maybe two? Alright I could get on board with that. But I guess I just personally don't see it happening. In @Paul Cumberland's example this is my hang up. He has it listed for 19 million for the 2018 year. That would be both below Carr and Stafford's number buy a decent amount. I guess what I am saying is why on earth would he go for that when he just got tagged for 23 million? That is a heavily backloaded deal with a chance of Cousins not even getting that contract. His agent would be a fool to make that deal considering how Stafford and Carr's deals are worked. It's a good chance that when Cousins does indeed sign he could be the highest paid player in the league. He is not going to take a deal that loads the majority of it on the final year. I mean if I am wrong here I would gladly eat crow. I just don't see these numbers being moved around as easily as some of you believe. I could just be naive but when I look at the figures and cap space of current teams for me the Denver Broncos cannot play ball with Washington, Cleveland. or the NY Jets.

    Here is the thing. You are assuming these players would go for a restructuring of contracts. Can they? Sure. Will they? Who knows. Not all players are big team players when restructuring talks come around. These guys have won a super bowl. They got their ring. I promise you they want their money now because they know they can get it. I could be wrong of course but I am just looking at the typical modern NFL player. Greed is good. In regards to the contract. Lets take a look at what Stafford is making and the cap hit for him and the Lions. 26,500,000 in 2018. 29,500,000 in 2019. Derrick Carr is going to be making 25,000,000 for 2018. 22,500,000 in 2019. What makes you think Kirk is going to go to 16m or 19m? Those are the last two contracts on the books for QB's. Cousins is expected to have a Stafford deal or better. No way they construct that contract to be only a 16m to 19m hit. That would blow up their cap to 29 or 30 million dollars in the future years if he gets anywhere near Stafford money because they would have to backload all of it. If they (Denver) do indeed sign Cousins I would suggest that in the very least he makes 25,000,000 on the cap hit. With their current situation a lot of folks will have to take pay cuts or released outright for it to work. I am sure it could happen but with what I outlined its not very likely IMO. The Jets and Browns however could launch a down right contractual assault on the senses for Cousins that would make everyone's head spin and I do believe that to be the scenario. Time will tell on all of this. At the end of the day I think we are all going to sit back and say what were they thinking about one team be it the Skins or someone else.

    Agreed. And this may be why the Browns are being mentioned with everything now. One look at their cap situation they can dump money into a contract any way they choose and may ultimately be what happens. I think Cousins is a Jet next year personally but time will tell.

    I think people are too easily skipping over salary cap implications with Kirk. If he gets 27 or 28 million a team like the Broncos will not and I repeat WILL NOT do that. That one player takes all of the cap that they have. You really believe thats what they will do? I know I know they can cut this guy and cut that guy and restructure blah blah blah. They won't cripple themselves salary wise with one player and zero upgrades anywhere else. Teams need depth. Depth costs money. I don't think this market is going to materialize with 32 teams like some of you seem to think. Might only be 3 or 4 teams max spending on him. Real time view of the caps as they stand now. http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/cap/

    http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/washington-redskins/terrell-mcclain-7784/ Seems to be more accurate but I dunno.
  14. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    If we cut Terrell McClain it will be a cap hit of -2,312,500 if its pre June 1st. After June 1st its a dead cap of 4,500,500 for 2018 and 2,500,000 for 2019. Only get a savings of 187,500 dollars. That is one guy we should not cut because he is going to ding the cap. At least not this year. We need every dollar of it if resigning Cousins.
  15. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    Alright we can go off of that. We still need another ILB starter. We still need LG starter money. Questions at RB which many result in a FA. Even if we did sign a big name WR we would still need to resign Grant or someone comparable plus depth. OLB questions in Murphy and Gallette which will get decent money. Breeland might get a contract but I doubt that one. Also need money to sign our FA depth. And the rookies. Now granted more than likely one rook will fill a starters role. I guess I just see a lot of holes on the roster with little money to help fill them. My biggest worry is if we don't do enough to make the playoffs what do we do then back up against a cap wall? Yes I know it could go haywire the other way too with a new QB that costs less but this is a serious turning point in this franchise that has to be 100 percent right. With the questions that surround Cousins on various things, true or not, is it worth it in the long run? To me I say no.
