    I think my math is right?

    I'd be more concerned with them spending the rollover before its lost.
  6. The big thing that has bothered me about the past few days is the fact that most of these contracts have come without the players and staff sitting down and having a formal "interview". Yes, it is a relatively small community but they dont really have a chance to sit down and have a talk to discuss if each other have similar philosophies, goals, good chemistry with teammates, etc and will ultimately gel together. I think this has been the big reason why Ballard has made so few moves. He has put the team culture as one of the main focuses of his regime and you cant judge another player based on a phone conversation with their agent.

    Ahhhhhh, off the field issues. I dont expect the Colts to sign him because he doesn't fit team culture. Or McDaniels'd.

    Tampering Day 2

    Well, that's a whole other can of worms that has nothing to do with being used to the physicality of the sport. That's more of a discussion on how NFL contracts are done. It's best to just view it as a business and expect players to want new contracts every year and teams to release players 2 years after signing them. But back to Bell, I agree with the trend of the past few decades that has devalued the position. And with his history (although I understand his motives of getting his money while he can), he could very well go through the same cycle of behavior in a year or two after getting a new contract. And with the average career length of a NFL rb, it is hard to invest a ton of capital longterm into a player at the position.

    Not saying I would want to pay Bell a huge contract if I was in Ballards shoes. But the time away, especially for a running back, could help heal the body more than the harm of being away from the contact for a year would do when coming back. I think the time away is less a concern than how it was spent. These guys can afford private trainers and still go through a lot of the same activities that a person on a roster did and definitely as much as what a guy on IR has done. But if the player spent the year on the sofa with a bag of doritos rather than continuing to practice, then yes there would be red flags.

    Ricky Williams came back just fine after going on tour with Afroman for a year. Also, didnt Saturday sit out a year before the Colts signed him all those years ago?

    Looks like Washington might free up some space. https://mobile.twitter.com/TomPelissero/status/1105158011188842496

    I'm sure teams are looking at Gurleys contract and his late season injury and remembering why the RB position had become devalued.
  13. Great, then there would be discussions of whether or not cankles would justify a player going in the top 10.

    He has been a GM for 2 drafts. "literally" means very little If he main goal is to build the lines then why did he take a safety with a limited playing history in his first draft? I understand that, but at the same time Dungy was a well respected coach and I'm pretty sure he had a say in the players drafted. I agree 100%. I doubt a receiver is drafted but you can never guess 100% of the time what talent will be available. With a sample size of 2 drafts, there really is no way to predict a pattern.
