Juju for the Steelers? I hate to see him go. No, really.

"The Dolphins would need to sign and/or draft another backup quarterback."

I'm glad they're sticking with Tua, although I love watching Fitz play.  Look at the four teams that got into the divisional rounds of the AFC -- all of them with QBs still on their rookie deals.  Plus, this saves the team about $20 mil in cap space.

I could see their 1st round pick being Waddle, Smith, or Chase.

Keep Juju. Ben wants Juju to stay, Ben can give up some of his #41.2M to make it happen. Yes really.

New England Patriots
Center David Andrews. There are a lot of other notable choices -- quarterback Cam Newton


Yeah, how would the Patriots ever replace Cam and his prolific ... [checks notes] 8 TDs?

I hope Football Team and Scherff come to some kind of sgreement, since their lines are starting to get good.

Sounds about right for the Vikings. Until we can get well shot of the millstone around the Viking's neck that is Cousin's contract cap space is always gonna be tight and sadly something has to give.

Meh, their defense is probably fine assuming the COVID holdouts return.  What they really need are receivers.  I love Edelman, but he can't be the #1 receiver that defenses get to focus on.

Packers need to keep their line together. You can always find a good RB in the draft for way less than what Jones wants. Especially since Rosenhaus is his agent now.

Guy was playing for a contract when he was dancing on the other teams' logos?  What is wrong with so many star WRs?

Keep your head down, put up great numbers, sign a massive free-agent deal with lots of guaranteed money, THEN go diva and AW.

The Bengals' biggest dilemma? The Brown family still owns it.

The biggest issue facing the Texans is that they need a football team.

This....

And, of course, the answer is always "Dan Snyder" when the question is "what's wrong with the Washington Football Team?"

As a Denver fan, we really need to go after DaShawn Watson.  But we still have a issue with Coaching.  At least Elway got put somewhere where he cant do as much damage.

I'm surprised they were able to narrow it down to just one dilemma for the Bears. That roster has holes all over the place because Ryan Pace keeps farking up the top draft picks when he isn't trading them away. The first round bust list is far longer than the first round hit list.

I agree that the Seahawks' top free agent is Shaquill Griffin. But I don't see the need to break the bank for him. He might be a bit overrated at this point and if some team throws huge money at him, he should walk. There are other options. DJ Reed was a revelation at the opposite corner; they can bring back Quinton Dunbar on a cheaper deal (he clearly wasn't well in his last start against Buffalo and hopefully can heal); they can give Tre Flowers (who improved to not-terrible late in 2020) another look; they can give Ugo Amadi a look on the outside (assuming Marquise Blair can come back and reclaim his slot role). Griffin is a solidly above-average starting corner, but his Pro Bowl selection in 2019 wasn't really deserved.

Chris Carson could be the more interesting one. With many teams following the "don't pay for RBs" strategy, along with Carson's injury history and physical style, there's perhaps a better chance they can bring him back on a reasonable deal. The team barely got to see Rashaad Penny in 2020 and I'm not sure they'll be totally comfortable rolling with him.

They went for QB with the Colts, which is the easy, cop-out choice.

Beyond QB, they have WR1, DE1, DE2, CB1, LB2, HB1, QB2, FS1, RT1, TE1 all as free agents. They also saw a star lineman retire along with their QB.

Tons of cap space, but not enough to restock half the offense and half the defense. Going to be an ugly year next year, methinks...

Anyone try and figure out how the Saint's are going to shed 105 Million next year?

I like how they point to "Jalen Mills" for the Eagles. Because, clearly, a kinda-decent CB that was turned into a mediocre-at-best safety should be a priority over, well, everything else about the team.

GB : The big guaranteed money was missing. So [Aaron] Jones turned it down and then opted to change agents, hiring Drew Rosenhaus.

He will no longer be a Packer next year.  Drew is one of the most Toxic agents around and the Packers will not even bother to try and negotiate with him.  Especially when LaFluer rather have a stable of rotating running backs instead of an every-down back
 
2021-01-20 5:43:34 PM  
I'm amused that someone will pay Nelson Agholor, more surprised they did ask if William's becomes a cap casualty.  Also depressing they need to be mistake free to even have a chance to run with the Chiefs and they're near the cap.
