Which former Free agents do you wish we would have signed if we didnt franchise Hardy?

26 posts in this topic

Assuming we had to give them the same contract they received from another team and we were their team of choice.

 

This isn't a bash the Hardy Franchise tag thread but more of a what have we missed out on thread?

 

Please list the contract terms of whoever you list. Pie for the best answers.

 

Here's my list and upon further review we could have nearly done this anyway!!...

 

1.Eugene Monroe 5 yrs 37.5 Million, 17.5 guaranteed (first  2 years salary fully guaranteed + 11 million signing bonus

 

14 cap hit -3.2 Million (1 million base salary +2.2 million prorated signing bonus)

15            -7.7  Million  (5.5 base + 2.2 prorated signing bonus )

16              8.7 Million   (6.5 base  +2.2 prorated signing bonus)

17             8.95 Million (6.75 base + 2.2 prorated signing bonus)

18             8.95 Million (6.75 base + 2.2 prorated signing bonus)

 

2. James Jones 3 yrs/ 10 Million,  3.65 Guaranteed

 

14 cap hit 3.8 Million (only 500k guaranteed past 1st year0

15             3.1 Million

16             3.1 Million

 

For Bonus points I would have kept Steve Smith and not picked up Roman Harper

 

But back to reality... I don't know a single offensive tackle out there worth a poo but 2 receivers remain. Cotchery and Lance Moore, I'll take either or both pending the price please.

If we diminish our pass rush, I believe we would need to score more points than those two would afford us.

If we go long-teem with Hardy it's worth it. If not, this was a severe miscalculation.

I'd have liked to keep Mitchell. I think he offered a lot to the defense in terms of being a leader and a guy who set the tone for the team. Replacing that will be hard.

We could've signed someone to be a stop gap to replace the pass rush gained from Hardy.

Then, of course, a receiver. Not sure who.

Anthony Collins as well.

With what he's gonna get paid if he stays here, we could have signed anybody.  With what he wants to get paid, we could have signed everybody.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
