Middle of the pack league-wide is understandable i guess.
Its only for 2020, gave is time to evaluate JB, gave some stability under the circumstances (luck retiring), and doesnt really affect our cap.
Even bad QBs get paid in this league. Thankfully Ballard didnt tie us long term.
Yep...that's his cap hit. They gave ~$28M more (essentially the Franchise Tag) when Luck retired...and put some of the money into this year. His dead cap hit is $12.5M...but I think if traded (before his roster bonus is due)...he would have a$5.5M dead cap hit.
If u would have told me that we would b 6 and 6 after losing Luck, I would b satisfied. However, my biggest disappointment is the regression of the O line. I don't think they r playing at the same level as last year. Their level of play has been a problem since pre-season. The special teams is a mess. They may need to look at replacing those 2 coaching positions.
