Topics I've Started

Jon Beason impresses in Giants debut

16 October 2013 - 10:11 AM





Apparently he is playing quite well. It would be nice to see him shine again, even if it's with another team.


I only mention this in the Panther's section because it was for a conditional pick. Whatever the conditions were, it looks like Beason might be meeting them. Here's to hoping for a 5th or 6th if he continues to play like this.

Something's up....

Armanti being cut today can really only mean 1 of two things off the top of my head

1) The organization is trying to light a fire under the player's asses

2) We are making a trade of some sort. Have you ever heard of a team CHOOSING to roll with only four wide receivers? Two go down in a game and we are screwed. It doesn't matter if he was simply taking up a roster spot, that's what #5 receivers do, they sit on that damn bench 95% of the time.
We COULD be replacing him with a slightly better #5 receiver, but given the low priority, the fact that the new player would have to adjust by learning the system, the additional cap...it seems unlikely. I'd say there may be a significant upgrade coming. thoughts?

Marqise Lee suffers bad knee injury

29 September 2013 - 09:08 AM

I don't know a lot regarding college football so I was hoping someone else would have started the thread by now.

Last night, down by 27 late in the fourth, Marqise lee suffered a knee injury returning a punt. He had to be carted off the field and looked to be in great pain.

I hope the man is ok and wish him the best in his recovery, but assuming his injury is significant, how does this affect his draft stock? Would he fall to late first round or early second if he misses most of training camp? Would he be an ideal selection if we continue to win games?

Cardinals lose three defensive starters yesterday

23 September 2013 - 11:52 AM

Two Linebackers and a Safety...


 "According to Darren Urban of the team’s official website, the Cards will place linebackers Lorenzo Alexander (Lisfranc) and Sam Acho (broken leg) "


Also their starting Safety lost his finger....yes, you read that right, he took off his glove to find the tip of his finger still in the glove. He had to have emergency surgery and lost the finger down to the first knuckle (roughly an inch or an inch and a half). He will almost certainly not play us in two weeks.

edit 9/25 - Alex Okafor , LB also added to IR today.

2014 cap space and resigning concerns and questions

31 July 2013 - 02:28 PM

I wanted to take a look at our Cap situation for next year to see where we stand. I went to Spotrac and found next years cap to be at 119 million. This leaves us over 4 million in cap room assuming we have a similar cap to last year. It may go up slightly, which will leave us with 5 million. I think we will sign a veteran guard this year and end up carrying over about 12 million


Total cap space before resigning Free Agents or draft picks -17 million

-4 million for draft picks

=13 million. Now onto our Free Agents. Below are the notable free agents for next year. There were some others I didn't include as well but no one notable that should be resigned.

Derek Anderson, Byron Bell, Richie Brockel, Jeff Byers, Bruce Cambell, Jimmy Clausen

Colin Cole, James Dockery, Drayton Florence, Graham Gano, Ted Ginn Jr, Jordan Gross

Greg Hardy, Ben Hartstock, Domenik Hixon, Brandon Lafell, Mike Mitchell

DJ Moore, Captain Munnerlyn, Nakamura, Jordan Senn, Jason Williams


Out of these 22 players I believe they'll let  7 walk and won't bother to resign

Richie Brockel, Jeff Byers, James Dockery, Graham Gano, Ben Hartstock, Nakamura and Jimmy Clausen

Brockel and Hartstock are not the answer to our TE problem and may not even make the 2013 final roster. Byers will probably be cut to be replaced with a higher quality player in the draft. Dockery the same if he even makes the 2013 final roster. Clausen doesn't fit our scheme and I think we draft a kicker.


Out of the remaining 15 Free Agents I believe we will resign 8 with about the same cap hit as their 2013 cap hit.

Derek Anderson-555k, Bruce Cambell-630k , Colin Cole-555k, Domenik Hixon- 1.1 mil,

 Captain Munnerlyn-1.1mil, Jordan Senn-620k , Jason Williams-715k , DJ Moore-620k


Total to resign these players is 5.9 million which leaves us with 7.1 million to answer these questions....


Byron Bell- I doubt he resigns for his salary in 2013, which was 560k. Starting Right tackles in the NFL make more than that. I think there is a chance we resign him at 1 million on a 1 or 2 year deal. I don't think he is the future but we will probably draft our LT next year, not replace Bell and I doubt we can get cheaper help in FA that would be an upgrade to him.


Drayton Florence- If he does well will he resign for vet minimum?


Ted Ginn Jr-If he acts as a poor man's Mike Wallace this year helping to open up the field with his speed and does really well he is going to want more than the 1.1 million he earned this year and also ask for a multiple year deal. Is he worth it?


Jordan Gross- I don't know how that dummy year affects his cap for 2014 if he decides to play for us, assuming we want him. His cap hit was 5 million this year. If we draft a LT early next year we could pick up a veteran guard for less than half of Gross's price, but that's still another two million towards our cap. I think we let him go after 2013.


Mike Mitchell- He's going to shine this year and will not be available at his old price of  $625k

This is just my personal opinion but he's going to perform very, very well this year. What do we pay him?


Brandon Lafell- According to another Huddler, he was actually smack in the middle statistically last year. I think he picks up his game this year and is in the top half or number 2 WR's. His cap hit in 2013 is 1.5 mil. There is little  chance he resigns with us for that amount and is probably going to want double that. Anyone know the median number 2 receiver salary?


Greg Hardy- We could probably safely resign everyone else if we let the Kraken walk, but I don't see that as an option. To compare his 2014 salary with his 2013 salary of 1.4 million is a joke, considering our other DE, whom I believe Hardy is just about equal to, makes ten times that amount. I think a salary as low as six million in 2014 is doable, if that number escalates greatly after 2014. I think a number around 8-10 million a year is much more realistic.


On top of all these questions, we will still have Cam to sign in a future year, but fear not. The large cap jump is coming soon enough and will help along with the release of at least one, if not both running backs. If we can get through 2014 I think we will be ok for the future.
