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

    • I am going to go out on a limb here because I live on the edge.  A risk taker--man on a mission, etc.  My friends call me, "that guy," if that means anything to you people..........That's what I thought. Jones WILL go to SF at #3.  Book it. The #4 spot, whether it is Atlanta or another team after a trade, could go to a NON QB player.  Sewell or Chase, if a non QB---a trade between Denver (not WFT or NE) and Atlanta is the only way Fields goes at #4.  (That is a pretty bold, specific prediction.  MARK MY WORDS!!! Watch Mond and the Patriots--he could not only sneak into the first round, he could go before Lance.  Everyone is expecting New England to trade up, and they might, but they could move up to Detroit or Dallas and take Mond. Washington will be aggressive and end up with Lance. Maybe with a trade with the Lions or Panthers--- So when the chips start falling and the desperate teams start moving in for a QB, the Panthers' front office is going to look pretty smart.  Imagine that 5 QBs go before the Panthers?  Six?  Let's take a look at how that could go down--think desperate GM here-Washington, Denver, New England come to mind. 1. Jax Could they take Wilson?  Nah. Lawrence QB 2. Jets Wilson QB 3. Niners--I am still convinced that Jones is their guy.  Jones QB 4. Denver (trade with Atlanta) Fields, QB 5. Cincinnati Sewell or Chase--probably Sewell LT 6. Dolphins Chase WR 7. Lions (Trade with New England) SHOCKER!!! MHS HAS Cahunas!  Mond, QB    8. WFT (trade with Panthers) Lance, QB 9. Atlanta (from Denver) Pitts TE 10  Cowboys Kwity Paye, DE 11.  giants Surtain CB 12. Eagles Parsons LB 13. Chargers Darrisaw LT 14. Vikings Slater T/G 15. Detroit (from New England--Not sure Waddle lasts this long) Waddle WR 16. Cardinals Horn, CB 17. Raiders Smith WR 18.  Dolphins Barmore DT 19. Panthers, (2021 first, 2021 second, with a 2022 first and second rounder for Pick #8) Caleb Farley, CB Just a hunch that this could go down.  Marty likes to deal with people he knows, and RR and Snyder will be frothing for a QB... Panthers have 2 picks in second round.   OT and DT.   Tampa Bay may draft Mills, QB Stanford. 
    • Anyone else notice the opening graphic had us taking jamaar chase and devontae Smith going a pick earlier to the lions?...
