This Changes Everything!

Today, with the first uncapped year since 1993 only 10 days away, the NFLPA wants to press pause until March 2011. Executive Director De Smith discloses in a memo sent to all players and agents today that the union's most recent proposal to the NFL "contains an offer to continue the current capped system for an additional year which would allow the parties ample time to complete work on a long-term CBA."

Looks like the NFLPA is hearing from all of those unrestricked/restricted free agrents and their agents. This could have had a lot to do with Peppers not getting tagged. Wow, how quickly things do change!

It's sort of funny how everyone was "pretty sure" there would be no cap.

Makes a lot of RFA's UFA's too. On our team and others.

The NFL owners will likely reject it. They don't want a cap (floor) and will use the opportunity to unload big contracts with no cap consequence and sign a lot of guys to RFA tenders for 1 year so they aren't obligated to pay them in 2011 if there is a lockout.

    • I have a weird suspicion we're really interested in Ross to many's dismay.  Last year proved in too many wats how much we need a playmaker and in a major way.  Looking just at in-game skills, Ross is the best playmaker in the draft.  I feel better about him than the board did about Brandin Cooks in his draft.  We need to draft someone clearly ahead of Shepard/Johnson and to be our third in volume receiving option behind Olsen and KB.   I can also see that causing a stir here so it'd be an entertaining summer for inline fandom.    
    •   Allen is an intriguing prospect. I just wish I had more faith in his versatility. IMO, we need DE more than another DT. Even if that DT is pretty dang good.   Ross? Really? I love everything about him. Except...those knees, and that shoulder. Small guys with injury problems in college? Not high on my list. But hey, that's just me. We can still get a talented kid who doesn't have injury concerns. Just not at 8.   Now a CB? That tickles my fancy. As much as I would love a Hog Mollie at DE. A top flight CB does not repulse me. But...to me, CB is like WR. We should still be able to get a talented kid, even in the 2nd.   Man. I don't know. Part of me wants that Hog Mollie DE. Part of me wants a kid that can scare a Defense. I just am of the mind that we need Offense more so than Defense. But, Fournette is the only Offensive player worthy of that 8 slot. Wishy washy is my name.   Other than that. Thanks for playing.
