  1. Cap space - about 50M (spotrac)

     

    Resign:

    Rhodes - 2/17M

     

    Cap Space - 42M

     

    FA:

     

    Carl Lawson - 4y/40M

    Romeo Okwara - 4y/40M I trust Ballard but he doesnt have the best track record for drafting edge rushers so lets double down in FA on two that we know can get five or more sacks

    Jonnu Smith - 4y/32M

    Joe Haeg - 1y/1.5M

     

    Cap Space - 12.5M

     

    Draft:

    Miami got desperate and gave us both of their twos for our first 

    Most picks may go earlier but they could fall

     

    R2P4 - Liam Eichenberg OT

    R2P18 - Greg Newsome CB

    R2P22 - Tutu Atwell WR (Let TY walk but replaced him with his reincarnation) 

    R4P22 - Richard Lecounte S 

    R5P21 - Monty Rice LB

    R6P21 - Khyris Tonga DT

    R7P21 - Tristan Hoge G/C

     

    Roster:

     

    QB - Wentz, Eason

    RB - Taylor, Hines, Wilkens

    WR - Pittman, Pascal, Patmon

    WR - Atwell, Campbell, Dulin

    TE - Smith, Doyle, MAC

    LT - Eichenberg, Haeg

    LG - Nelson

    C - Kelly, Hoge

    RG - Glowinski, Pinter

    RT - Smith

     

    DE- Okwara, Turray

    3T - Buckner, Lewis

    NT - Stewart, Tonga

    DE - Lawson, Banogu

    WLB - Leonard, Glasgow 

    MLB - Okereke, Speed, Rice

    SLB - Franklin, Adams

    CB - Rhodes, Ya-sin, Rodgers

    K - Blankenship

    P - Sanchez

    LS - Rhodes 

  2. Who does everyone say we take tonight? Trade back or forward; with who? Any good guesses?

     

    My three picks today gonna be a little different. I've noticed Ballard normally likes to double up on positions throughout the draft.  

     

    34 Tee Higgins - Get a bigger body receiver for Rivers and it's our biggest position of need imo.

    44 Michael Pittman Jr or Denzel Mims - Getting another receiver in hopes of not hearing receiver being a position of need for the next three years with a hopeful extension for TY. Then we have Campbell, Higgins, and Pittman (or Mims) for 3 more years+. 

    75 Robert Hunt G/T - Lets get some line depth with Haeg leaving.  

  3. I got a feeling he is going to spend some money this offseason. 

     

    Cap Space: 71M

     

    Resign/Cut : 4M 

     

    Hunt Save 4M We sign a real NT in FA

     

    Le'Raven Clark - 2years/4M Depth

    Geathers SS - 2years/4M - Bring him back to maintain culture and for depth

    Haeg OG - 3years/9M - a good depth lineman will have to overpay because line is too goo

    Johnson WR - 1year/1M - homegrown talent give him another year shot has potential

     

    Cap Space: 67M

     

    FA: 39M

     

    Jadeveon Clowney Edge - 5years/95M I've seen a couple reports linking us together. He would be an immediate upgrade plus he can stop the run on the way to the quarterback. 

    Austin Hooper TE - 4years/36M Replacement for ebron but a better blocker and more reliable hand to catch with.

    D.J. Reader - 4years/44M Finally a solid NT/1T/3T(if needed); something we haven't had in quite a while. He has played in a 3-4 so it should be a easier transition.

     

    Cap Space : 28M

     

    Draft - As always just a draft from first-pick I did two this time so take your pick

    We’d be stupid to pay Chris Jones 23 million a year. No DT should make top 15 QB money. 

     

    That being said, I’m with you on him being my highest priority if he tested free agency. I’d be fine paying closer to $15 mil per season. 

    When I think about it were not going to be paying a QB for at least 4 more years unless we sign a FA. So why not start dividing that money up of the next four years. 23M is excessive you're right. I definitely exaggerated that number and that on me. Donald is at 22.5M and Mr. Jones isn't that good(yet). JJ Watt is at 16.7M and he only plays half seasons. I could see 18M to 20M for Mr. Jones if he hits the market. I have no problem with either one of those figures as long as the contract is five years or less. Maybe even front load the first two years a bit. To be on the safe side due to everyone we will be resigning. 

     

    ^ this is why I'm not a GM. No self-control. 

  6. I don't think our team overall is looking too horrible this year considering our loss to the Dolphins. On a side not that loss hurt my soul. It was very depressing.

     

    In no particular order our needs right now:

    An Elite - Edge/Pass Rusher or DT

    A Stud - Edge/Pass Rusher or DT

    Number 1 - WR

    Depth 7- 9 - Oline 

     

    After the Season is over and free agency starts:

    A consistent pass catching touchdown grabbing Eric Ebron, (A TE unless we resign both of them.)

    A Stud LT or resign Castonzo(I'd prefer Castonzo)

    A Starting or Backup SS

     

    Most Importantly:

     

    A DECISION - Continue with Jacoby. I like him, the team likes him, and the staff likes him. I would rate him for 13-18 for QB range. However, I personally think when he is in the whole entire team steps their game up. (offense/defense/special teams) I know I'm about to take some heat for that. OR Find a franchise QB. Maybe tank next season for Trevor Lawrence. Trade the house for whoever we could get. Trade up this year for someone. We have more than enough money and draft capital for almost all of these options. We won't be able to determine this till the season is over however. 

    I hope Jacoby has a MVP type second half of the season and takes us a couple rounds deep in the playoffs. Ballard put together a pretty solid team around him except for WRs, which we have the most horrible luck with.

  7. Next Week:

     

    Colts at Steelers  Colts W

    Texans at Jaguars   Jaguars W (Jags got a chance at home)

    Titans at Panthers   Panthers W

     

    Not looking too bad for us as long as Steelers don't beat up on us like they have been the past few seasons. 

     

  8. Just going to throw this out there. Next off season there is a good chance were going to have over 100mil to play with. I'm not saying blow it all by any means. I know were going to have a lot of our own to extend. However, I wouldn't be upset if we signed a top free agent or two. I know it's early but I'm going to throw out some names for giggles...

     

    Chris Jones

    Amari Cooper 

    AJ Green

    Yannick Ngakoue

    Leonard Williams

    Jadeveon Clowney

    Arik Armstead

    Hooper is ATL's leading pass catcher right now. I don't see them letting him leave without a fight. He's been very cheap for them, and I wouldn't be surprised if they got an extension done this year.

    Atlanta has got to cut a lot of players in order to resign/extend him. They have negative money to play with next year.

    Nice effort, I like most of the picks, but YUTER.... (Sheeze, who names their kid Yuter) May go top 20.

     

    I think we need a DT ASAP in the next draft

    I agree with the DT I'm praying one of the studs makes it to FA. If we can't pull any in FA I would move DT to one pick in the first two rounds. That name Yuter is very unique!

    236: R7P23 CB KINDLE VILDOR GEORGIA SOUTHERN

     

    As far as FA is concerned with our own players

    -TE: I'm not signing both Ebron and Doyle to big contracts. I'd pick one. Even with Ebron's drops, he still has more yards and TDs with the same amount of targets as Doyle. I'd probably resign Ebron and MAC, and let Doyle go unless he's will to sign a very friendly contract.

     

    -WR: We'll have a decision to make with Funch depending on how well he does when he comes back. Both Pascal and Rogers are FAs, and I'd definitely try to upgrade at least one. Position wise, I think Rogers is more flexible, so I'd likely keep him if any. Really hoping Fountain comes back strong. Love what we were seeing from him.

     

    -DE: Sheard? I just don't know. We need an upgrade at DE. Stinks that Turay is losing time due to injury. Regardless, I think I'd resign Sheard if it's a team friendly deal. 

     

    I  picked Mo Ali-Cox and Doyle to resign. Ima let Ebron walk.  Then I got Austin Hooper in FA from Atlanta.

    I think for the D-line we need to push the draft or sign whatever stud makes it to FA. 

  11. I know this is way to early but killing some time

     

    Resign:

    Anthony Castonzo - 3 years

    Jack Doyle - 2 years

    Clayton Geathers - 1 year

    Joe Haeg - 4 years

    Mo Ali-cox - 4 years

    Zach Pascal - 1 years

     

    Free Agents: ( I know most wont make it to free agency but just playing around)

    A kicker - 3 years

    AJ Green - 2 years - We're hopefully gonna get a functioning receiver besides TY from somewhere this off-season. We've had horrible luck with receivers we have the money lets swing for the fences. He should most likely have a year or two left in the tank. Just front load the contract for when the worst happens. Probably the most realistic of the good recievers to hit free agency in my opinion.

    Austin Hooper - 4 years Falcons have no money next year. They gotta make cuts and Hooper is having a fantastic season, and has always had consistent hands. Not as many TDs as Ebron, but he moves the chains. 

    Chris Jones(lol(Mahomes' contract is coming up and maybe Houston will recruit him))/Jordan Phillips/Arik Armstead/Vernon Butler/A'Shawn Robinson/Leonard Williams/Maliek Collins/  - 4 years(lock one of them up) Take your pick, We need to upgrade our "NT". We just need a big, mean, nasty dude who wants to eat blockers. 

     

     

    Draft: Fanspeak Rounds 1-4

     

    R1P23: Ceedee Lamb WR Oklahoma - We're hopefully gonna get a functioning receiver besides TY from somewhere this off-season 

    R2P3: Yuter Gross-Matos Edge Penn State - can stop the run on the way to the QB 

    R2P23: Austin Jackson OT USC - I think he is about to start shooting up boards

    R3P23: Lorenzo Neal DT Purdue - competition in the trenches

    R4P23: Logan Stenburg G Kentucky - competition in the trenches 

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  12. I love Doyle but if Hentges is a better version. I'm going to get shot for saying this. Should we try to shop Doyle? If we can get enough for him. Honestly we missed Doyle after he went down for the first couple games but we figured it out shortly after. We did not perform poorly without Doyle. There may be some value there and we could save a roster spot this way. 

  13. I know it's way to early, but I enjoy free agent predictions, re-signings, and mock draft almost as much as football season. 

     

    Who does everyone think were going to resign for the 2020 season. For how much total and how many years. Would love to see everyone TOO early predictions!!! Hopefully get a general consensus what are team will look like for the next few years.

     

    Players set to be free agents for the 2020 Season:

     

    Jacoby Brissett 

    Devin Funchess 3years/39M (I think he is going to ball out this season)

    Chester Rogers 

    Anthony Costanzo - 2years/27M 

    Zach Pascal

    Eric Ebron - 3years/22.5M (He will regress(I hope I'm wrong))

    Jack Doyle 

    Mo Ali-Cox - 2year/2M

    Ross Travis

    Joe Haeg - 4years/14M

    LeRaven Clark 

    Evan Boehm 

    Jabaal Sheard

    Luke Rhodes

    Kenny Moore - 5 years/42.5M (I think he will improve again and everything I read about him is positive (everyone loves him))

    Clayton Geathers 

    Matthias Farley

    Chris Milton

    Grandpa Vinny 1year/3M (If he doesn't retire)

    Rigoberto Sanchez 4years/8M

     

  14. I think he will resign some of our players but as of now with no one being resigned. This is how I have the position rankings. When they resign Ebron, Costanzo, Ali-Cox, Haeg, and Clark then the positions will change. As of now with no one being resigned TE is a clear cut number one unless everyone is happy with Billy Brown and Hale Hentges.

     

    I have NT/DT in tier 2 and have it labeled we need a solid started. We will have Autry, Lewis, and Hunt all under contract. I dont think those positions need to be in Tier 1 which is labeled we need to rebuild the position, but an upgrade for those positions would be great.

     

    Honestly, the more I keep looking at NT the less value for that position I see. If you look at our D-line right now. We have one true NT Stewart (330 lbs) After that we have five line man 260-290 lbs (Autry, Lewis, Ward,  Hunt, and Lewis). Then we have Turay (220). Then from 250-260 (sheard, Houston, Green.)

     

    For the edge, I think we need to start looking to find two building blocks; possibly rebuild the position. Back up the brinks truck for a young stud Edge player. Sheard will be a FA. Houston is getting up there in age. That leaves Turay a second round second year player who had four sacks and fifteen total tackles last year one. It also leaves Green a fourth round rookie. Lewis is more of a DT to me they may transition him outside more if injuries occur, but I think they are looking to replace Autry with him. 

  15. I know it's really early but, if anyone wants to get a head start on looking at next years draft prospects or free agents. This is my positional needs ranking from most needed to least needed at this time. Tier 1 we need to rebuild the position. Tier 2 we need solid starters. Tier 3 Depth. Tier 4 not needed at all. 

     

    Tier 1:

    TE - Everyone is a free agent.  

    LT - Castonzo, Clark, and Haeg are all free agents. Hopefully at least resign Castonzo and Haeg will be resigned if not all three. 

    DE - Sheard is a FA. We will have Houston, Turay, Green, and a couple roster bubble guys. We will need two solid young starters.

    K - Vinny is getting old he may have another who knows 

    P - Rigo is RFA probably will be resigned

     

    Tier 2:

    CB - Moore will be a FA. We still have RYS, Desir, and Wilson but retaining Moore is a must in my opinion. 

    SS - Willis isn't proven yet and Geathers is a FA.

    WR - We will need a taller wide receiver still in my opinion(maybe not). Funchess will be a FA. We still have Hilton 5'9", Campbell 6' , and Cain 6'2" 

    NT - An upgrade here would be awesome

     

    Tier 3:

    DT - depth/upgrade

    QB - Need a backup or to retain Brissett

    C - Depth

    RT - Depth

    G - Depth

     

    Tier 4:

    RB - 4th string
