Legend of Luck

Zeitler to the Browns

Recommended Posts

Huge money for a guard.   The Brown's have a great o line on paper.  Still no qb,

12 mil/year was true...wow  31.5 guaranteed.

And now they have one of the best lines in football.

 

Thomas, Bitonio, Tretter, Zeitler, Pasztor

That is a nice but expensive line.  I would take it though.  They still need t o sign Pasztor though right?

Yep....but for how long....by the time they get a qb and groom him those guys will be long gone. I feel like this is in preparation of taking care of a young qb and getting the running game going. They have neglected their defense though.

I'm not sure. I think he's still under contract.

Yep, except that they don't know if the guy they protect is any good enough. :) 

 

Go on, take the money and run, woohoohoo...Steve Miller Band was right. :)

It could take a while. But, I just wish we could say that we had one of the best lines in the game with Andrew in his prime...

You never know.  They might trade for Jimmy G or draft a guy that pans out.  They have a mediocre RB and only one real threat at WR.  They need more offensive and defensive help than just a stout o-line.

They do still have a lot of picks in this draft

12 mil per year is a reach but the Browns could afford that. I think he was legitimately worth maybe 10 mil. Maybe we can snag T.J. Lang? I still think it's ridiculous our O-line has been below average for so many years straight.

Ballard needs to make a move and add someone. This team desperately needs to give Luck more time and be able to run the ball.

There is always one or two teams that completely destroys the realistic worth of positional players every Free Agency period.  Here is a perfect example of it, that is LT money and you spend it on a Guard?  Now Guard and Tackle prices will be driven higher because of this.  It is the never ending cycle of garbage teams way overspending to get top FA's, because they can't get them otherwise, and continuously redefining positional worth.  12 million for a Guard....geez!

Yep...they need LOTS of help....but if you are going to build somewhere than on the OL is as good as any. Any young qb would likely have the chance to have some extra time to sit in the pocket and hopefully a strong run game....give them time to develop. Money has to go somewhere I suppose....they were only like 100 million under the cap.

    • Due diligence.  Kick the tires on anything you can and maybe you catch lightning in a bottle. 
    • Mack got $90M gtd...I can't see Clowney getting close to that. I think it would probably be ~$60-65M...which is what Lawrence and Clark both got...and maybe not even that much.    It's not my money...but I would do it. The Colts have the money...and I don't think the Colts will find a better player to add to the team in FA...Clowney is a 3x consecutive Pro Bowler with double digit sack upside...heading into his prime...whose skill sets fits perfectly into a position where they have a long-term need.    To put it another way...I would much rather give Clowney a deal and add him to this team to try and win a Super Bowl...than spend that cash on extending guys 1-2 years before they are due. The Colts have a nice 3-4 year window where they can be a lot more aggressive.   Signing someone like Clowney will make a dent...but it won't hurt them long-term. There is a very good chance this team will have left upwards of $80M on the table over this four-year period. Right now, they have to spend $44M in cash next offseason just to get 89% (using OTC and estimating a $10M increase for the salary cap). They will make that up for sure (in FA and extensions)...but they have the flexibility to commit to a player like Clowney. I get being lean during those first two years...but not now.   The key for me would be the draft capital. If it's only one of those 2nds...I am very intrigued. 
    • You can't believe everything you hear. He's perhaps just testing out market value
    • Well it did say in the article Ballard contacted the Texans about his availability.
    • Thank God Ballard is too smart to fall for this kind of noise. Looking forward to this season I think we have a fine team
