  1. Hitner to the Rams?

    Nothing official, but he says so. If true it's disappointing but we shall see on the terms. http://www.turfshowtimes.com/2016/5/4/11593588/2016-nfl-free-agency-los-angeles-rams-signing-donte-whitner-safety
  2. At OT, considering its premium and dearth of talent league wide, I'm just not so sure. We'll see though.
  3. He subscribed to it last year with a much older/past his prime Jared. He also traded a pick TWO years out for Norwood. He also said he thinks we'll get a comp pick (3rd rounder) next year, but didn't want to count on it. Perhaps after May 12, although there's no way to REALLY know, that will be a little closer to certain. All things to consider. Investing a day 3 pick (in 2017 OR BEYOND) and relatively little guaranteed money into much needed OT depth would not necessarily mean sacrificing future for present. At all. Just an option/tool on the table that can't be discounted. One can even argue it'd an investment IN the future by helping protect our investments.
  4. Yes but that contract in particular was structured in a way that required an instant guaranteed $60 million check. Stupid, yes, and the salary cap is an equalizer in the free market (although it penalizes teams that draft well), but having an owner richer than others (which Smith still wouldn't be close to being, just more $$$ than JR), can't hurt.
  5. As long as they remain 100% hands off on the football side, the richer the better. We NEED an indoor practice facility, the sooner the better. And with contracts like the Suh contract last year a reality in the salary cap era (never mind the fact it was a BAD deal), the ABILITY for an owner to write a check for $60 million guaranteed to a defensive tackle without breaking a sweat is an asset.
  6. But are we going to give him a chance to prove it? ;)

    Seattle got cute and thought they'd trade back AND get the DT they wanted. Wrong. Suckers.
  9. Current Super Bowl Odds

    Several things- -For starters and most importantly, we're winning the whole damn thing, so let's get that out of the way -Injuries permitting (and injuries are an X factor no doubt), we're better than last year. JNo is a loss but there is no answer for our DT rotation and a healthy KB. Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth. -our roster is NOT complete and we have a ton of cap space -we're favored in every game but [email protected] Seattle is a dog in 3, @AZ, @NE, @GB. We simply have fewer fans playing futures odds, that's the bottom line and there is value to be had in these lines because of that -first things first-win the division. No one is in sight, as our biggest rival is paying our 4th best DT, a guy who was slated to be their highest paid defender. They then reach for a safety in round 1.
  10. There will be other options. Sometimes one man's trash is another's treasure. But make no mistake they'd be scrap-heapish options in a league desperate for OT help.
  11. Not ideal, but then would know if he's worth resigning long term with an inside track on him-and if not, if someone truly throws big $ at him, then maybe get a comp pick in 2018 as a result. Far more likely than him completely falling off the face of the earth and being out of football at 25. A one year rental for a backup is not worth a 4th, but there's more than meets the eye here, as the Jags may not feel motivated to give away their own depth for less as Beachum is recovering from injury himself.
  12. Other than saying ain't happening you've given no reason. We're thin both in the short and long term at OT. One injury and it's threat level midnight. We traded for Kevin Norwood and Jared Allen, and, again, claimed Jonathan Martin. All last year, without NEAR the cap space. This makes worlds more sense than that.
  13. Which is why the 24 year old former #2 overall pick is more intriguing, to me at least.
