Using Some of That 24M**

Then don't do it. Also, I doubt a safety that gets cut is going to get a ton of money on a 1 year deal.

 

There are plenty of reasons a player could get cut. Money, team wants to go younger, bad attitude, bad play.

 

Also, if we did happen to find a FS that was cut. Why does it have to be a 1 year deal?

Agreed, but what if a FS that we liked became available? Wouldn't we just cut Burris and the money would offset?

Absolutely, if you are dumping Burris it’s likely a wash (guys on couch now aren’t demanding high salaries) but the person I was replying to was trying to say that we could add as many FAs as we want with no impact to next year. That’s not the case with rollover, wasted cap does impact our cap next year and by wasted cap I mean we sign Okung for 1 year at $10M and release a $1.5M Scott. I don’t think it gets us to be a contender and our cap space is $8.5M smaller in 2022.

Got a feeling Fitterer's boy Quandre Diggs (FS) from Seattle may get released. He wants a new contract and they are already about to make Adams the highest paid safety in the league... Just a possibility.

Yea I definitely agree with you there. Unless a good fit at safety becomes available I don't want to make any moves. I am also pretty high on Sam Franklin, just see him more of a SS, but maybe that's why we are going to allow Chinn to play deep.

That defiantly is one, of many, possibilities. Or nothing could happen as well.

I know the staff loves Sam. I guess we shall see how much. If we don't bring in any S help, it says a lot about how they feel.

 

Or maybe they are willing to roll the dice, and play with what we have. Saving that money for next year.

 

Dang, ain't teh NFL fun?

Chinn has the size and speed to be in the box or deep, IMHO.

Not sure where the idea that he can't play Centerfield came from? He has plenty of speed to play in the back end. Plus, he will hit you. We haven't had a thumper back there is more than a few years.

 

But I do know Rhule would love to have a complete D. Allowing him to play Chinn wherever he is needed.

Need to roll over all 24 if possible. Much to my dis-taste last year about spending 60(?) mill in cap, for a 3 win to increase its total to 5.  Herniay only knew how to spend to win. Save up for a rebuild was NEVER part of his plan.....

 

No much in the vein of 25-ish players out on the market. There are some names, about the only ones that I feel could help are former panthers - Boston, KK, but mainly Okung. I dont want anyone, unless Okung wants a 6 million type of deal...... just in case Darnold is a real QB, that maybe enough to prevent him form getting hurt.
