  1. There's a few Ols who were drafted high and eventually found some success after a few years, even if it was after a shift of position. Leonard Davis might be the best example of this. Hell, Cleveland seems to think Greg Robinson is finally playable after many years. There still seems to be a decent chance Ereck Flowers can at least be a usable player, so i understand the interest. It's just a matter of cost.
  2. I assume you mean the Bengals, unless we're talking about a different Ross or the Bengals are so bad the Browns automatically get all their picks
  3. Jared Cook is kind of meh. 2018 he posted career numbers on a terrible team that just worked over their WR corps. This is the same guy that just put up crap numbers with Aaron Rodgers a few years back. He's not better than Reed, though probably will be healthier. I'd say he's an upgrade over Davis, but at what cost? How much money would you have to give and you'll like forfeit either a 4th or 5th round compensatory pick to do so. And let's not forget he'll be 32 next month and doesn't block. Davis has stayed productive into his 30s, but would I trade Davis, a 4th/5th round pick, and another $10 million in cash to get Cook? Cause that's effectively what it is. And the answer is probably not.
  4. The minimum tender for restricted free agents was just under $2 million. And that would have been an original round tender. He wasn't going to factor in compensatory picks regardless, but do you really want to pay Harris $2 million? Sure, it's technically non-guaranteed and he could get cut, but it takes up cap space and he might get hurt. He'll probably get less on the open market and the Redskins can always re-sign him for a lower salary.
  5. Yeah, I feel that's a contract the team will regret some. But it's "only", which I suppose isn't terrible. But it's a lot for an aging RB you'd rather have be a back-up. Everybody loved Peterson last year and he was great, but he also sucked the last several year prior and is pretty darn old for a RB (though Frank Gore still looms)
  6. I'd agree with you. He was not good last season, but he's had a good career and I'd put more weight on that than half a season with no training cap/pre-season on this team. He's at least shown talent in this league
  7. Ego would really be the only reason Saban leaves. To prove that he can succeed in the NFL after previously failing. Otherwise there's really no good reason
  8. How the hell did Perriman get $4 million dollars? He seemed to work out for half the league last year after getting cut by the Ravens (and then the Redskins). He sucked for years and had, what, 2 good games for Cleveland. That's really worth $4 million?
  9. I guess he's #1, because he's better than what's here. But he's also a guy that the Chargers had throw up over 1000 yards in 2016 when Keenan Allen went down. And then when Allen came back, the Chargers decided to draft a WR in the top 10 anyway in 2017 to push Tyrell back to #3 at best. Which isn't encouraging if you wanted that guy to be your #1. And at what cost? If Funches can get $10 million, shouldn't Williams get at least $12 million a year?
  10. I pretty much agree with this. The move didn't really make sense at the time. It was basically a job saving move by certain people on the team. Or at least an attempt at it. The Redskins were losing a bona fide starting QB, which likely meant taking a step backwards. Rather than do that, they gave a decent draft pick and good young player to take on an aging QB to maybe provide competent play for a few years so people wouldn't lose their jobs. But it wasn't really solving anything. And this team literally made this exact move before with Donovan McNabb. It didn't work out then either. It was basically a move to avoid finishing 4-12 or 5-11, so we could finish 7-9. And give up a young player and a draft pick to do so. Who does that help? And in the end, it went about as poorly as possible. So it was a bad move complicated by an even worse outcome.
  11. He'll be on his third contract, which is always risky for WRs. Particularly non-elite ones. Tate's been a decent guy and thrice has topped 1000 yards in 9 seasons (though one was by three yards). I'd view him like Garcon or DeSean Jackson. When both left here they were guys seeking a third contract. Some people bemoaned missing one or both of them. Both signed big deals elsewhere. Both failed to live up to their contracts. Garcon signed for 5 years and played 2 years totaling 786 yards before getting cut this offseason. Jackson signed for 3 years and was a bit better, totaling 774 yards and 668 yards respectively. Though just got traded for a bucket of balls. Be careful with those older receivers. You're often paying for past performance.
  12. I tend to agree. There's a select few players I'd make an exception for. Mosley is one of them. But generally speaking, I'd pass on most options. This team has needs, but you're really not going to fill most of them in free agency. I'm not sure there's anyone worth signing on the offensive side of the ball. The team needs a bona fide starter at QB and two WRs, but those players aren't out there in free agency. Instead of paying $10 million a year on the Chargers # 3 WR, I'd just focus on the draft for those positions. Defense has less needs, but better available players. Safety is the one spot that really needs attention and I'd consider some options there too. The rest of the needs, like LG are probably better served either via small deals or cuts or the draft.
  13. His free agent market has been ice cold the last two offseasons, which is why he end up here in the first place on a one year prove-it deal and eventually re-signed last year after finding no other major takers. I think the league has spoken on his value, particularly now when he'll carry a decent sized cap hit and was benched towards the end of last season. Foster, on the other hand, is at least fairly cheap so he has that going for him.

    Starting QB 2019???

    He hasn't exactly proven health either though. It's one thing to say he hasn't had that many injuries, its another to acknowledge that he's missed games with injuries any time he's been given any playing time. Some of it is perception. They remember McCoy getting hurt in the National Championship game in college (though outside of that, he remained relatively healthy in college). But in the pros? He missed games with injuries in 2010, 2011, 2014, and 2018. The only years he has started games in the NFL are 2010, 2011, 2014, and 2018. The other years he was a back-up and basically didn't play. So it's not a good track record in the NFL. He's never stayed healthy when asked to play.

    Starting QB 2019???

    I can totally the see the developmental side of things, though the Dolphins and Giants really don't belong on that list. But the Chargers, Patriots, and Saints do. All 3 having aging QBs who will need to be replaced in the near future. And the opportunity to grab a highly regarded QB on the cheap isn't a bad move for these franchises. The trade-off is that all those teams are in "win now" mode, so the question becomes how many assets do you want to allot to Rosen? And if Rosen has to sit for 2-3 years, he'll eventually just be a free agent before you even know what you have. But I can totally see it making sense, particularly for a team like New England, which has multiple draft picks thanks to compensatory selections. Of course the caveat is that any of these teams have to actually believe in Rosen. Which is unclear if they actually do.
