That's not bad.

It’s the same per year we gave Apple and Roberts last year or Searcy the year before.

It’s a fantastic deal if he plays back to his past level. It’s another terrible deal if he plays like last year.

It does feel like we’ve paid a decent amount again to “broken” players again. We done awful with FAs the past few years with only a couple exceptions. Spent a ton of money on retreads and injured players and it hasn’t worked out. Here’s hoping it does. We need a little luck because we are paying a decent amount to guys other teams don’t seem to want.

I go back to saying I think this is truly year one of the rebuild rather than year two.

These are moves like I might expect in a year one.

We botched year 1 last year, badly. Really sucks that we felt like a team that was 1-15 to close the prior two years that lost Luke, Cam and a score of others was worth patching up. Amazing that we even thought that. Honestly, we just got lucky that the young guys on D played their asses off because our offense scored less than Kyle Allen.

A problem inherent when shopping in the Kmart bargain bin.  Cap gets better next year, we'll be able to shop at Target.

I would tend to agree with this. Fans and team alike need to show patience of building the team the right way as this is likely a 3-4 year rebuild to the top of the division. However I think if we draft a QB this draft then they are trying to accelerate that schedule.

Would not mind Rasul Douglas being re-signed could be solid depth at CB

As long as it does not hinder development of young players.  I want to see how Pride makes the transition from rookie to sophomore.  Hartsfield was listed as a S, now they have him as a CB and he was playing some nickel.  This should keep Jackson away from their #1 WR, which is good.

    • They go all out on garbage QBs, not elite QBs.
    • Even if the rationale is that there has not been anybody available in the draft that "lit their fire" (realistically, given where we were drafting/our ability to move up without throwing away the rest of the team), at some point you just have to pull the trigger, anyway. In 2021, it was pretty obvious the only QBs in the draft they liked at #8 were Wilson and Lawrence.  Maybe Lance, but I did not hear anything that indicated they would have jumped on him if he had been available at #8.  OK, I get it, you run with your scouting assessment. That was probably what helped caused the Darnold trade, knowing they would not get a chance at Wilson or Lawrence.  But this same scenario can and probably will happen every year.  They can narrow down their "golden group" of QBs beyond what is likely going to be available to them and then start looking at more reclamation projects. The idea behind Bridgewater was not bad: get a stop gap who may show he is the answer, but if not, you have him for a couple of years and then move on, hopefully with "your guy."  They effed that up and are not in clusterf*#k mode.  After they purged Bridgewater, they would have been better off staying the course with a veteran who was going to turn in to a pumpkin in 2 or 3 years, and continue to look for their long-term solution in the draft. But they didn't.  They keep looking at 30% fat ground beef and thinking they can turn it into filet mignon.  Meanwhile, they may have pulled the trigger on a guy some in organization thought was a potential solution (Corral) and the coaching staff decided "redshirting" him was a good idea.  He may not have paid any dividends, but he sure the he11 wasn't going to without some effort on our part.
    • People just don't get it yet. If you've been a day one fan you've seen enough coaches and teams to know when it's not going to work. No damnit! NO! Time to rebuild already, AGAIN.
