Fit talking to "2 or 3 players" about extensions


Recommended Posts

Other than that he fact that Tim Weaver is probably correctly surmising that Robby and Donte are probably the ones we're trying to lock up to longer term deals, even though Fitterer didn't come out and say it and some Huddlers have suggested that both may be on their way out, I find it somewhat amusing that Fit said we're talking to two or three players. I mean, why the secrecy? He throws out a little bone that everyone pretty much has the read on, but isn't playing it so close to the vest that he doesn't say anything. Then, he says "two or three" when he's the GM. I mean, which is it, two or three? And if Robby and Donte are two of the three, then who's the third?

Maybe there are actually strategic reasons, obscure or otherwise, for not being specific, such as potential trades/signings/post-cut additions. Maybe he enjoys playing games with these responses. Maybe he doesn't really care about being up front with the media. Maybe some mix of all of those things.

might be smart to extend him before he heads into his first NFL season that features a QB willing to throw downfield that also doesn't have a blown out shoulder. 

Moore could easily put up some big numbers.   He puts up good numbers with dudes that can't /won't throw downfield.

Ah, just assumed that was a given, but you're probably right. 

I'd like to be a fly on the wall for that negotiation though. Does DJ increase his value by NOT signing an extension, or does he push all his chips in now?

DJ Moore?  Donte?  Robby?  

First two, OK. Robby? That would be a bad move. Isn’t the hope that Smith, Marshall and the other Moore (along with maybe some real TEs in Tremble/Arnold) make it easy to let Robby go for a comp pick?

I would be really disappointed in extending Robby with the amount of college WR talent coming our every year. Spending a lot on your WR2/maybe 3 next year makes little sense.

Donte I wouldn’t mind because he’s relatively cheap right now. If he wanted a lot, you can wait on it and see how Taylor does.

Possibly DJ...adding years on to his rookie deal.

Would have to assume DJ...could Paradis be one of them?

 

 

DJ most certainly. Paradis? I can’t see that one due to age and injury history. We can sign or draft his replacement next year if we haven’t already.
