Optimistic or pessimistic?

im not quite sure what better moves they could have made on defense. 

The Bouye move is going to depend on contract. We're going into next season relying on a lot of players with significant injury histories. That usually ends up predictably. Bouye is coming off of both an injury and a down season while he was on the juice. That's a big red flag. I hope the deal is cheap. Worthwhile gamble if it is.

Reddick played all 16 games last season, and has never missed a game in 4 seasons. 

Denzel Perryman.....Reddick has never missed a game in his pro career.

also who cares about money? the cap isn't real

The Reddick signing was great. The rest suspect at best

I really liked the Morgan Fox signing as well, but like you said the rest of them are going to be largely dependent on if these guys can stay healthy/perform at a level they were at or close to before. I'm cautiously optimistic but not ready to start celebrating quite yet.

Whitehead was a miss but we had quite of few additions that surprised us.  I hope we that these additions were not just names but players we targeted. 

I've always been an optimistic person.  Fitterer and Rhule hopefully have a plan and these players pan out.

Defensively I think we have added some good pieces.

The draft I still think will be mostly on offense but not completely especially in the latter rounds.

Every year I go in hoping we will be competitive and win and make the playoffs.

Ya never know.

Fox looks positive, not nearly as sexy as Reddick but positive. 

The rest is suspect to normal cheap swings at any positives. Still a lot of holes if you do not go by the warm body theory of management.

TE is going to be upgraded some, but we still do not have that weapon we are used to. 

[gasps]   Are you kidding me?  We have the TE position well in hand.  “Darnold to Dan Arnold” sounds beautiful, melodious, almost poetic.  It is a thing of beauty.

    • As long as it's not the old Panther's offense of yore where half our PA plays were just: "PA -> all go routes." With our speedsters not named Steve Smith of Keary Colbert, and Kris Mangum, or whatever it was at the time. Just a joke to defend and led to Jake getting crushed far too often for a massive loss.
    • I understand that as well. I would not be in favor of a LB that early. I am pretty much opposed to taking a RB in the first round ever. So I do get it. That said, DT is just such an important position. I just don’t understand the positional value argument I’m relation to DT. Because the best ones eat two blockers. That gives so much leverage to your edge rushers and LBers.    Obviously it isn’t the most important position on the field but it plays such a huge role that gets overlooked by the casual fan. I was of the mindset from day one that I preferred to keep Star over Short. And clearly Short was a great athlete but Star made his job significantly easier. A nasty DT makes the job easier for ever single player on the line. I wanted Brown months before the draft process had started for this reason.
    • Having history with Matt Rhule definitely helps. We interviewed another former Patriots guy for our GM job too. Monti Ossenfort made it to the second round but didn't get the job. Of course, just like Stewart, Ossenfort had a job elsewhere inbetween the Patriots and us.
