  1. Ehh...it’s hardly an egregious overpay, even for a TE going into his thirties. Before any other signings this offseason he’d be the 12th highest paid TE in the league — between Tyler Higby and Cameron Brate. It’s basically an 11% raise over the last deal he signed while the cap is projected to increase about 20% over the same period. The skills he brings to the table — blocking, short/intermediate routes — are also likely to age pretty well. It’s not like he’s ever been particularly fast/explosive. I’d guess most of the guaranteed money is in the first two years of the deal too.
  2. Dunno. To my untrained eye the play fake looks like it did exactly what was intended to — freeze the DE and linebackers at the line of scrimmage and open a lane for Costanzo as a lead blocker in front of Hines. If Pascal makes a better block or the DB a lazier fill, it looks like you’d have Costanzo in front of Hines with a single DB to beat.
  3. Agreed. Some of the draft media who actually talk to evaluators (Tony Pauline, Dane Brugler) still have Love pegged in the early teens. My guess is he’s going to kill the pre-draft process enough that Ballard might have to execute a small trade-up to get him. Which would be justified in my opinion. Great arm, great athlete, and, given his background, seems to be a tough kid as well.
  4. In fairness to Tell, those are two of maybe the 5-10 fastest WRs in the league. Chark ran something like a 4.35 at 6’4” and 200 pounds and Fuller was sub 4.3. They create separation in man from plenty of CBs, not just a rookie who’s a half season through the transition from safety.
