I'm sorry, but Charles Johnson is getting paid waaaaay too much. He's gone next year.

I can't fathom why Godfrey is still here.

 

It could be because he hasn't been medically cleared yet. And since he hasn't, if we cut him, he could file a grievance with the NLFPA that we released him because he got hurt (which is a massive problem).

This is a depressing thread. 

 

It is but explains why we are sitting tight right now. We can't afford anyone until their asking prices come down. Players right now want as much as they can get, Gettleman is waiting til they will take what they can get because he has to. No more throwing Guaranteed money out there and spreading it across future years and taking a hit if the player doesn't work out.

 

Hurney threw Guaranteed money around like no tomorrow cuz he was robbing peter to pay paul to try and save his job since he was operating without a contract. I guess he gets the last laugh now.

I don't have time or patience to double check but I think our 24.5 Million commited in dead money leads the league.

    • I was very intrigued by him early on. The tape (highlights) look good, and at that size still seemed to have pull away speed. Then I looked into him more, and he has some very bad fumbling issues. If I am remembering right it is like once in every 34 carries on average.  Near the bottom in the entire RB draft class.
    • Honestly I claim no expertise regarding the draft and haven't gone to the trouble of creating a board or ranking players. But I think that guys in the top 50 are often from bigger schools and get more hype than other guys.  Plus there may be guys taken at some positions much sooner or later than previous years. In the past 2 drafts, no tight ends were drafted in the first round. And the last time 4 TEs were picked in the top 3 rounds was a decade ago. This year we could see 2 tight ends taken in the first round alone and another 2 or 3 in the second round.  On the other hand there is often a run of OTs taken in the first and this might be the first draft in a while where no OTs are taken in the top 20. We could get one of the top 10 tackles at 98 or 115 where other years they would be chosen much higher. Is that because they all suck or is it that there are more attractive guys at other positions?  You make a good point about trading up. Is it better to have 2 picks at 40 and 64 instead of one at 24. I think it depends on how we see our current projected starters.  If we think we have several holes to fill and these guys are going to be impact players than don't trade up. If you think that the guy at 64 would be a rotational guy but who we want at 24 is going to be a starter and really impact the team, you trade up. It depends on what we think we need and how the draft pans out.
