    Yep, Jones or Stidham for my money.

    I don't advocate getting Foles, but we can get him without gutting the roster, we have several absurb contacts on the books.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I totally agree, we do have cap room to make a big FA move at QB right now. As for 2021, get ready for a lockout.

    That only reinforces my thoughts that he has a good idea he might not make it past #1. good debate as ever by the way

    The 2019 Free Agency Tracker

    Another major consideration in free agency has to be the expiring CBA. We only currently have little more than a dozen players potentially contracted in 2021. Smith, Moses, Richardson, Reed, McGee on the bigger contracts. Scherff will get added to that list soon. Now you can safely say at least 3 of those players won't be here in 2021. Recent times has seen seen a rise in one year deals. Maybe this year we see a greater step up again in 1 and 2 year deals. Not good for teams with limited cap space. I wonder if the teams loaded with space have an obligation to spend big over the next 2 season, in both cap and cash terms. Pretty sure you can't carry dead money into 2021 if that is a year not covered by a CBA/Salary Cap. Fairly sure I've read that it accelerates forwards into 2020 if the new CBA is still unresolved. I reckon there is a lot more going on in the background that us as fans don't see in advance of the expiring CBA. Maybe that's why we might be happy with a 1/2 year stop gap at QB. Maybe you go for it this year, then clear the decks next and reboot 2021/22, some say a lock out is due. Interesting times.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I agree here. Dan has to be itching to create some major Buzz. However inept he may appear, it is starkly obvious that the franchise is dying on its arse. I know you are fairly hot on Murray. Sure he'd create the hype, personally not convinced we are a realistic option for him. Can't see us getting high enough in the draft to get him. Can't see any reason why Murray would fancy coming here. The guy has basically got a number of front offices by the balls given the lure of baseball is never far away. I think he can almost hand select a far better option for himself that the Redskins. Any decent advisor will tell him that. Maybe Murray doesn't care that much where he plays, he's going to land a fully guaranteed 30mil plus contract. Who knows. You do have to think that something 'wild' is just around the corner though. It may well just be another disaster, but I dare say it will be a high profile move in some capacity nonetheless. Perhaps Bruce thinks purging our rivals for Foles and Landon Collins is the answer.

    I have a hard time seeing up trade up in this draft. The Smith contract makes our day 1 and 2 draft selection absolutely crucial over the next two season. I could see us going QB at #15, or at most after a very marginal trade up. I think Gruden will believe he can develop Daniel Jones. Seems like a fit to me, however unpopular. After that, Stidham at the end of the third with the Cousins comp pick. That's the direction I think we'll go in the draft with QBs. I'll be surprised if Murray makes it past the #1 pick. This has got a feel of the Mayfield scenario for me. At worst, I see someone jumping into the #5 slot of Tampa's to take him.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Dont think we'd ship a 2nd rounder for a vet QB like Dalton. I think we would trade a third, our Cousins comp pick, for a QB though. The second rounder might go in a trade to move up from 15 in the draft mind. Must be something going on with the so called brains trust, I mean we were in discussions with Josh Johnson weeks ago.... I smell a QB move coming by Bruce Almighty.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I think Smiths record 2013-17 was enough to suggest he'd be a 'viable' option here. But at the the right trade value and contract cost. They clearly were not right from the offset, he then got mangled. Sticking up around 3,500 yards like he'd done the 4 years prior, with a backfield game churning out another 1,500 total years could easily have worked. But the third rounder, Fuller, and the contracted money make all that discussion redundant. It's proven to be a debilitating trade. Can't argue with that now.

    Starting QB 2019???

    I clearly can't prove this, but I would wager that we made a polite inquiry to the Ravens about Flacco. Interesting that Elway was also in talks the Eagles about Foles, but shipped a 4th for Flacco. Probably realised he couldn't compete with the Jags.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I agree. I went on record 12 months before we signed him saying he'd be our QB in 2018. I think getting him had merit. You make a good point about it being done in haste. The injury is outright unfortunate, I'd say what sticks in the throat more than anything is the cost. The pick, Fuller, the guaranteed cash. Bad contract, Bad cost, but personally I think Smith could have had a viable place here for say three seasons. Tough **** now. For all the talk that we have no cap space, I still think Bruce is gonna pull the tigger on another vet QB deal. This time though I think we will also draft one.

    Agreed. Brown is sitting out unless traded. Never playing for Pittsburgh again.
