I would imagine a few of these players will be re signed in March.

Just because they are up for contracts does not mean they will be hitting free agency.

I agree completely, but they aren't signed now just wondering everyone's thought on the questions.

Hard to answer that question.

Once the season get completely over we will find out. I think the GMs are already talking to agents but till a deal is signed we don't know who or where these players will go.

The rumor mill will be rolling. haha

They're best guess and opinionated questions on what you think could happen. I understand how free agency works. I just want to see if anyone has some good theories as of now before anything is set in stone. Let me give you an example:

 

I think Brandon Graham could be a colt next year. He is getting up there in age so he may not resign in Philly and he has a Frank Reich connection. I think he would get around 6 mil or so(this is just an example).

I think Trey Flowers has a chance to hit FA. Pats usually try to avoid paying for players they haven't invested in a ton. They have shown willingness to let players go and just collect the 3d-4th compensatory that comes with it...

I think they traded Chris Chandler and Jaimie Collins before they had to pay them.  I could see the same happening with Flowers.

I have this gut feeling an edge rusher is making it to FA and were gonna pay. I'm thinking Trey Flowers as well, but then again they may sign him since they haven't traded him yet to get max value. Maybe its just wishful thinking on my end.

Chandler Jones. And they did trade both of them. Collins was a bit of a different case...because he was apparently doing his own thing too much on defense. Still not sure why they traded Jones.

 

If Flowers gets tagged...I hope the Colts stay away. Doubtful those two teams are trading again for a while anyways.

Thanks for the correction.  It was Chandler Jones I was thinking of.  I wonder if the Patriots would want Brissett back as part of a trade for Flowers.  Just thinking out loud.

They'll sign DeMarcus Lawrence, Clowney, and Earl Thomas...all of em. Then we'll draft Deebo Samuel, AJ Brown, and DK Metcalf at WR and Jacobs at RB, and Hockenson at TE. All defense FA, and all offense draft. That's. What's. Gonna. Happen. 

 

I love these posts because it keeps the offseason interesting, but the odds are much better of none of those guys listed hitting FA than them hitting the market. They'll most likely aggressively pursue anything that does hit the market, and draft DL early. I'd imagine there will be either an FA WR or one drafted (the brass is more content with in-house WRs than the fanbase), with other most likely positions addressed via draft being CB, S, LB and OL...always OL.

Forget about David Irving.  He missed a few drug tests, apparently.

 

I could possibly see Shane Ray, as an Ebron-type move.  Polian thought he was the next Mathis.  Let Mathis work with him and see what happens.

    • 1. Gallup 2. 3rd - 5th round pick     If we moved him for a pick, we would also pick up around $5.5m in cap space, which would be nice to carry over for next season.   Dallas would only owe him $5-$6m for remainder of season. Very manageable.
    • I rewatched the vid. The guy definitely measures too far into the back. Per the combine how to's, they are supposed to measure from edge of scapula. Basically where the humerus and scapula meet. Doesn't really matter as his wingspan is the important thing.    I liked Rodger too. Thought he was too small to be legit CB contributor until he adds some weight, but loved his long term upside. What is strange to me though they had him working in as NB, which seems like he'd get crushed at his weight if he gets caught by RB or TE. I'd love to see him put on some pounds. Given he's blazing fast, he can certainly add 10-15 and still be plenty fast.
    • it's not Bills system it's Erhardt Perkins
    • I think Jones said they are going back to the feed Elliot mode. If so, JB is fine handing it off 65% of the time, tossing a few high %, and maybe an air coryell shot or two if 3rd and long.
    • No it isn't worth a lot of back and forth but I think guys are built different and looks like the end of the should blade could "cut into " the chest measurement. In any event Rodgers has long arms and that's good. BTW... when we did our favorite 2 picks of the draft mine were Rodgers and Blackmon. So obviously I think Rodgers is going to be a good cover man going forward. He's for sure going to be a liability vs the run , so he'll most likely never be a guy that plays more than say 50% of the plays without an injury . Unless of coarse he gains 15 pounds without losing a lot of speed.
