Could be some very interesting options...Smith, Njoku, Engram, Everett, Howard and Henry.
Smith will likely get a nice deal. Probably out of the Colts range.
Njoku is purely a flyer...but he has upside. I would love to give him a cheap one-year deal if other options fall through.
Everett has flown under the radar in recent years...because there are so many pass catching options in LA. So he could be an interesting gamble.
Evan Engram could be a cheap trade candidate as well. He has issues with drops and isn't much of a blocker...but he has huge upside in the passing game. A chance of scenery could be huge for him.
I don't think OJ Howard will be ready for the season to start...and TB doesn't save anything by cutting him since they picked up his 5th year option...so he's probably not a real option.
I doubt the LAC let Henry leave...especially as they try to build a top tier offense around Herbert. But if they did...absolutely sign him.
My hope is that they take a flyer on one of those guys AND drafts a TE to develop. With MAC...that seems like a pretty good group of TEs for the next few years. I know Doyle is still there...but they can save $4M on him if they wanted. Have to be practical about players. I think I would give MAC a 2nd round tender and see if anyone signs him (and if they do...keep Doyle). If nobody signs MAC...then release Doyle.
It's time to rebuild the TE group.
We're also extremely deficient with LT now. It's a little scary how many crucial pieces are missing on this team. I like Stafford, but I have a feeling we're going to be outbid. Two first round picks is essentially the opening bid according to NFL.com.
pittsburgh is not in the running until they commit to moving on from Roethlisberger. Which they should do this offseason but I have a sneaking suspicion that they will give up on Big Ben too late rather than too early (or on time).
I think Rooney fully intends to break camp with Big Ben still their intended starter in 2021. I don't think it's the right move but I think it's the decision they're going to make. I think the Pittsburgh brass sees 13-3 rather than all the underlying problems. I think they'll avoid making any significant changes.
Bottom line I don't see a move to a new QB in Pittsburgh this offseason
