  1. IMO, I think Cleveland and us are the front runners. Cleveland's roster is loaded, young and excitinig...it's a question of the culture and direction the leadership in power takes them. Are they finally done being the awful team that is full of unfulfilled talent and dreams, or are they finally for really after 2 decades of embarassing play. I think they are ready for primetime and will be a big time player in the AFC this year. Comparing our roster to theirs, as a free agent, they've got some talent oozing at spots.... QB - Mayfield RB - Chubb, Johnson, Hunt WR - OBJ, Juice, Calloway TE - Njoku A talented young offensive line DL - Garrett - Vernon - Ogunjobi - Richardson LB - Kirksey DB - Ward - Greedy - Gaines SAF - Randall & Burnett I like how we are a quiet sleeper team to regain a stranglehold in the NFC this year, but Cleveland's roster is not to be slept on. If I'm McCoy, it's going to take $$ and some other factor - Family, location, ability to play the Bucs 2X a year, etc. to sway me, becuase on paper, the teams are similar....with CLE possibly being better. I think us and the Browns are both playoff caliber teams with a 10-6/11-5 season ahead of us that are both appealing to McCoy. Not to throw shade at the Ravens, but that roster doesn't excite me as much vs. us and CLE if I'm looking at a team to play for for the next 3 years.
  2. I really hope we sign him here. With the Kalil money opening up soon, we can fit him in, and still have money to add a FS if we want. We fit the bill as a 'contender' and something that he didn't mention, but I'm sure a player of his caliber and drive -- the ability to face his former team 2X a year. A front seven of : McCoy - Poe - KK Addison - Kuechly - Shaq - Irvin/Burns Yes, please.
  3. I didn't like Tre in his first go with us, but I feel like he's improved since his departure. He's not going to be in the Pro Bowl anytime soon, but he would be an improvement over what we have... on a 1-yr deal - I'm ok with it. I'd prefer Gilchrist or maybe Stewart equally as much. Gilchrist is a heady and versatile SAF that can also play NB. We could roll a great package of Reid-Gilchrist-Gaulden out there as well. We aren't making a move until after 5/7 in order to not affect our comp picks, but the release of Searcy, combined with the Luke restructure makes me think we make two moves... DL - Bailey S - Gilchrist
  4. Sign Boston, move Gaulden to dime back or as a rotational third safety with Reid and Boston. Gaulden is a project that is not a starter beside Reid, he's more SS than FS. Bradberry-Jackson-Cockrell Reid-Boston
  5. Have they released salary numbers for Hogan? If it's low, than Torrey has to be released. Let's say it's $2M, a Torrey Smith release would equal a $3M cushion to sign someone like Tre Boston or Darian Stewart...or go towards signing Bailey. Torrey Smith (30 yo) 6'0" 205# | 2017 & 2018 combined: 53 catches - 620 yds - 4 TD Chris Hogan (30 yo) 6'1" 210# | 2017 & 2018 combined: 69 catches - 971 yds - 8 TD 2 SB rings and not a social media diva The choice is obvious. Bye Torrey.
  6. Sounds like he's going to the Broncos or Colts with that hold your horses hashtag. I'd like him here on a fiscally responsible deal and move Gaulden back to CB or in a sub package with 3 safeties. I don't think Gaulden is our future at FS.
  7. Top 12 defense? DE - Two 31 year old rotational guys DT - Short, but who else.... TBD LB - lost TD... how will this affect Luke No FS worth a damn currently We need DE help, so I really hope we don't go with a WR in the first. I think there's good value after the first round if we want a rookie WR in this draft. I'm not saying we draft for need at 16, but the DE/DT are stacked in the first round, and fall off a deep cliff in the early 30s of the 2nd round.
  8. Still hoping for a trade with the Browns for Ogbah. Outside of a 1-yr bridge signing like Ansah, the rest of FA edge rushers are very meh for me. Good thing we are investing in the likes of Torrey Smith and Colin Jones.... who needs an extra $6M right now, right? No doubt we are zeroing in on a DE at 16, but we still need another player in here....Addison, at 31 years old, isn't doing it for me in '19....nor beyond.
  9. Seems like the same narrative this time of year for us lately. Pressed against the cap to make any major impactful signings. Re-sign several of our own guys....usually one or two overpays are done, and we will look to the draft to fill our areas of need. That being said, we could still free up some money and there is still a good amount of talent that fills holes for us. Za'Darius and Preston Smith are still out there, and still some decent FS talent too. Daryl Williams could still be brought back. I was hoping for Morse, but after seeing what Buffalo paid him and what Paradis is going to get...no thanks. I'll look to the 2nd/3rd round to bring in a young franchise center. After seeing some of the ridiculous contracts (See: Funchess, Devin; Badger, Honey), I'm okay for now. Def need to get one impactful defender.
  10. Great year for edge rushers. Burns is intriguing...the only knock was his size, but he took a lot of the air out of that concern today. Don't think we could go wrong if we go DE at 16. Still like Sweat and hoping somehow one of the big guys slated to go top-10 (Allen/Oliver) drops to us, but don't think Hurney can f*ck this up.
  11. I feel like one of the guys Dallas drafted or someone was a C/G coming in and went top-10....maybe I'm confusing it. San Diego.... Baltimore? I forget. I'm drinking at the airport, so maybe I made that up. haha.
  12. I'm fine with Williams, as long as it's not a Charles Johnson kinda contract. Spend the rest on a top-notch DE and kick the tires on a depth DT maybe. Do the rest of our damage in the draft. Still need a QB2, but who knows where this franchise is planning to go there.
  13. Bradbury could sneak into the top-10. Even at 16, I only take him if DE and SAF are off the board. Guy is going to be an instant plug n' play OL for a decade, but there are guys in the 2nd and maybe even early 3rd that have franchise potential. I'd rather get one of the DL or Thompson. Hard for me to take a C in R1.
  14. To be fair, I recall quite a number of people (not necessarily you) that were confident that Poe > Star after we signed Poe. Poe was garbage this year on a level that is akin to Hornets' Batum, but as a NT in a 34 look, he might actually make more sense.
  15. I'd take him if the $$ is where it needs to be. I too want to get younger at FS....which we technically are, but plugging in Gauldin or a draft pick in 2019 is risky....especially with Gauldin. Now, if we take Deionte Thompson in R1, I think he has a Derwin James impact here by midseason. That's why Quin would be a solid stopgap as others have said. Could do a lot worse at FS on a 1 year deal while we evaluate what we have. Sidebar - I had no idea we signed Nacua last year. I had high hopes for him during his draft year...thought he was raw, but within a few years, could turn into a solid starter.
