Landon Collins was the one guy I really wanted in FA this year. Pretty much 50/50 against a Redskins team with little cap and we can't get him. Really upset, don't care what happens in the next few days now of FA. :(

No way I want him at that price. This kind of deal is why bad teams are bad. Redskins will be bad with these kind of deals.

Given these prices...might be time to explore the trade market. OBJ's contract...for example...doesn't look too bad.

This idea is really looking strong right now.  He has a great contract and considering what these FA prices are looking like it might make a lot of sense.

Everyone is getting paid. For comparison, Doyle in on a 3 year/$18.9M deal. 

 

That was two offseasons ago though. I would say Doyle and Uzomah are pretty similar in terms of situation.

Ballard sticking to his guns, what a shocker. He is not going to overpay for anybody.

I still thinks it’s funny that so many players only want cash and don’t want to win. I mean when your making millions and you just want more millions. I hope they love their cash and aren’t miserable after every game.

I like Ballards approach, but were going to pay someone, sometime... aren't we? I would have paid Collins...

But what is going to stop him from demanding a new one after a trade.

OBJ is just one example because most people are like "that contract will kill us all." But even his contract doesn't look so crazy.

 

But I imagine there are a handful of guys on the trade market with "big" contracts that probably don't look so big right now. There are also guys entering walk years that teams might be open to trading. Ballard has cap space...maybe it's time for some wheeling an dealing.

The problem is that not only is the draft class average at best for safeties, but now other safeties will want more now in FA. Better to just sign Collins.

I was all for overpaying, at least for one player.  In this defense, Collins would have been a plug and play impact player IMO.  

 

That said, it was a lot of dough.  It might be better spent in a different way.  We'll see what happens.

lol this reminds me of when the NBA cap spiked and guys like Ian Mahinmi and Solomon Hill got massive contracts that teams have been trying to dump ever since.

It’s funny seeing our name linked to all these players. That is a lot of players. Maybe one or two will happen. 

Most cap space in the league. We’ll be linked to any and everyone.

Really upset?!?

 

Dont Care what happens for the next few days?!?

 

The man got $86 mill.   

 

Hang in there...    we are being smart.   Remember what Ballard says...    teams that the typically win FA don’t do well in the regular season.    

 

Keep your head up!   Stay in the game!

In the NFL...you almost have to take the money...unless you are one of the lucky ones that gets to have a very long career. Many guys only get the gtd amount of their deals.

I never got my hopes up for the big three everybody was clamoring for, Collins/Flowers/Mosley. I don't see Ballard giving out insane contracts until it's time to keep our own guys.

Pretty much exactly what the estimated market dictated.

 

At this rate expect guys like Smith and Smith to get something like 4 yrs and $55M or as much as even 5 yrs and $75M

 

It is going to be a total clusterf%&*

 

This is why I am ok paying a guy like Houston 3 years and the $45-$50M I thought he would get when Brandon Graham signed his extension. Even though some folks here said no way Houston gets that much. I hope they are right and we still get him if so lol

Collins was widely considered to be the best safety available and the youngest.  Others will probably try to tag their value just below him.  None of them could make a legit argument to be above him in pay. 

 

So we could probably get Amos for like 12 or 13 million.

Earl Thomas reportedly wants 2/30... I'd be much happier giving him this contract than giving Collins what he got.

Thought he might get a bit more...though DET had the coach connection thing working in their favor. I bet it would have taken $18-19M to get him to another team.

Give it a few days.  I'm sure Ballard was prepared to give Collins a huge deal, just not that huge.  Someone's gonna get paid.

I'd take Amos in a heartbeat. Problem is that we aren't interested from what I heard, Collins we were.

That might not be a bad thing.  We won't be competing with any other team for his services.  Just renegotiate the contract.  We know he is a top receiver.  No argument there.

Wasn't it Frank Gore that flipped after it was originally announced he'd agreed to the Eagles?

 No it wasn’t. QBs, OL and Pass Rush are premium positions. Flowers is young and great talent. Patricia will use him properly. It actually expected market for him

Name a NE FA that has left NE and played to the level of his contract... I'll wait.

Yes, I think Gore agreed to a 3 year/$12M deal with the Eagles before he changed his mind and signed that with the Colts.
