The Good News? Free Agency

After Reddick and Gilmore get paid, we keep a couple other of our own FAs, and sign the draft…I’m not sure exactly what you have left out of 30m…but it most definitely won’t be enough for any kind of splash at. And that’s not even factoring a QB.

I have to break it to peeps, I’m not sure where this ‘we have tons of cap’ came from but it’s actually 2023 that is the magic year with tons of cap we can ultimately start looking options.

Dumpster diving next year.

The trick to having a good line is only paying on or two guys top dollar and finding other guys who can not suck while doing their job.  In particular, it's far more common to find teams paying most of their OLine money on the tackles than the interior. 

This is why I've been such a proponent of Brady Christiansen.  Not because I am convinced of his ability, but because it's CRITICAL that we find out if he has it.  If the guy is a LT, we need to KNOW going into free agency.

Likewise, we spent a draft pick on Deonte Brown.  The dude needs to play.  If he's an NFL guard, we need to KNOW going into the offseason.

If both BC and Brown turn out to be NFL players, our entire offseason takes on a different complexion.

We have 30m right now. Everyone is forgetting the cap is probably increasing 20 mil or so. Then there is always an easy 5-10 million in cuts. 
 

So probably looking at 55 million. Minus 8 for draft picks.

47 million.

minus Gilmore and Reddick (15 mil a piece roughly) 

Gives us 17 million.

So still broke. Might be the smartest move to only resign Reddick OR Gilmore if we want to fix the OL.

I think we could also see some extensions that piss some of us off, starting with Darnold. I don't think Rhule/Fit will be willing to admit & eat the cap for their mistake, so congrats on your 2 year extension, Sammy.  He's our backup for the next 3 years. 

Going to take the 18 mil for next year, turn it into a contract for 25 total, and spread it over 3.  Granted, I doubt Sam would agree to that, but I think it's our most likely option to put lipstick on that pig unless the FO surprises us and is willing to move on.

So you structure guys contracts where the big money starts in 2023? Give them big signing bonuses with voidable years on the back end and make the actual cap hit for the first year manageable for the team.

We need to part with some wasted cap first. I haven't looked at the numbers but we will be dumping some dead weight to get that 30 million higher.

No idea who but depending on who is here and in charge will set that pace.

No Armstred, his injury history is just a repeat of the last 2 guys we brought in. Great value in the 3rd but he isn't healthy enough to rely on any more. 

Getting just adequate help would be such an improvement, that and healthy.

contracts can be structured to easily fit into next year's cap with bigger payouts coming the two following years when we have 300 million to play with, and that doesn't include the expected cap rises.  .

No need to worry about the cap next year.  We need to worry about giving contracts to the right players.
