Within the last week there ha e been reports articles and everything listing 5 or 6 teams with possible interest and many saying he has a strong market. This is something I would listen too outside of just a few talking heads on NFL Live.
With Brees still showing he has all the talent why would they get rid of him? You compare it to Manning and 2012 but he was coming off a serious neck surgery and a potential to not be the same. So we drafted the extremely highly touted Luck. That isn’t even close to the same scenario in NO. They keep the guy they have loved for a decade and can’t afford Teddy. It’s simple math. You don’t allocate 50 mil just to your QB’s. With all the guys they need to sign plus possible extensions. A smart GM clearly doesn’t do what you are suggesting.
Getting all Dolphins first round picks would be a start for the Bengals, I guess. Like I quoted above, his family has said he is not pulling an Eli. He will sign and play for the Bengals if he is drafted by them, no doubt in my mind.
They said that about Manning's draft mate, Ryan Leaf too lol...
The point is, which you're actually helping, if Teddy is so good and seen as a franchise guy, why not keep him, and let an aging DB, who was injured a third of the year in 2019 go. Bottom line is, they, and most of the talking heads out there, don't think Teddy is worth it. They were pretty ruthless talking about him yesterday on ESPN's NFL live. They went through all the potential landing spots for Teddy, and were pretty down on his chances.
