General NFL Free Agency Thread


Recommended Posts

1 hour ago, Mr. Scot said:

Pretty much all of the initial news is teams re-signing their own players, including apparently Tampa and Shaq Barrett.

 

Speaking of Shaq's...

...it wasn't through free-agency but Texans traded for Shaq Lawson who played at Clemson with Deshaun Watson.

Lawson promptly reached out to Watson through social media and posted a photo in instagram which was captioned with:

"Getting the band back together."

Gonna get interesting!

Texans are going to go all out to keep Watson.

I think the Texans are going after players they think can help the team and also keep Watson in the fold.  It may just be me, but it seemed Watson relationship started to sour with Texans when his college and Texans teammate Deandre Hopkins was traded.  The Texans may feel if they can add 2 or 3 ex-Tigers to the team, maybe Watson may tone down the rhetoric and opt to play for them.

Ehh, that Jonnu Smith deal makes it look a lot less likely we can sign Henry to a cap-friendly deal.  

Happy for Cam though.

Good for Cam he does love his TEs but making a guy whose career high in yards is 468 the third highest paid TE???

I always thought that we should try and sign Gerald Everett a little cheaper, and rely on the draft.

Everett will see that ridiculous contract Smith got and think he can get the same. Just trade for Njoku

I'll take Njoku! I'd think that Everett's money would be a helluva lot closer to Njoku's than Smith's though. It'll be interesting to see.

I also disagree with you on that Smith earned his increase. He's a baller! It's only around 30 mil guaranteed.

Nah, we only overpay for average O-linmen FAs.  As for TE?  We will wait until there's nothing left and have to re-sign Manhertz if he's still around.  Remember, we signed that Seahawks castoff. Superb Owl!

Shaq Lawson will not keep Watson in Houston, not even a thought. That trade was all about fit for both teams. McKinney fits better in Miamis scheme, whil Lawson will help transform Houston from a 34 scheme to a 43 scheme under Lovie Smith. McKinney agent is actually the guy who pursued and found the trade partner as McKinney was about to be cut as a non-fit in the Lovie scheme
