If the Browns tender Kareem Hunt with a 3rd round tender, would you get him?

Let us say the Browns tender restricted free agent Kareem Hunt with a 3rd round tender.

 

Would you give up a 3rd round pick for signing him?

If we could do a specific trade like pick 44 for the Chiefs late 2nd and Hunt I would. However, I believe we'd have to trade a 3rd rounder specifically in this case. So only if Ballard moved down 3-5 spots in the draft and used the pick to acquire Hunt. Maybe the Cowboys move up 4 spots for Delpit or the Dolphins move up 5 spots to secure an elite WR that falls to 13? Only scenarios I see where I'd do it.

We didn't get him when we could have had him for free, so I doubt we give up a 3d now... 

 

Also, if it were up to me I wouldn't do it either. :dunno:

 

You HAVE to say 'no', since they're a dime a dozen.

Yeah, Hunt is a little different than most RBs since he can catch the ball and provides some extra value as a pass-catcher, but still... not sure it's enough to justify a 3d round pick.

I dont think he's better than Mack

 

He is much better than Mack in the catching department and is big enough to take on more punishment between the tackles, IMO. However, he is a PR nightmare for anyone wanting to sign him.

The same Kareem Hunt that just got pulled over and admitted he wouldn't pass an NFL drug test currently, and after he served a suspension for kicking a girl? Nah, I'm good.

she hit him too he had to do something.  it was heat of the moment im not going to black list him over that

 

weed is petty AF too, nothing major will come from that

I don't think it would make sense for Hunt and Mack to be on the same roster.  I guess it comes down to what Hunt would cost and what Mack would cost, and would either be subject to upgrading if something better popped up in the draft.

 

In the end, it seems like a push, especially that Hunt might be a suspension risk.  I wouldn't let fake outrage impact the PR angle so much that I wouldn't make the move  if it made sense.

 

Maybe if Mack was going to cost $12mil/year, I'd give a 3rd for Hunt.  If Mack would cost $5mil, I might only give a 5th for Hunt.

He would be an instant improvement at the kicker position.

He'd be awesome for the locker room too.

I dont think you realize just how many players smoke weed in this league.

Maybe I am from a different era than you because I think it’s never ok to hit a woman. 
 

But let’s pretend that it’s OK to react as Hunt did with woman in the video. Do we also pretend that his alleged involvement in a note club incident where a man ended up with  broken nose also never happened?  
 

Despite video evidence, do we also pretend the traffic stop and weed admission never happened either?  
 

Maybe taken individually all these things are minor but collectively don’t they show you who the guy is?  
 

Now take the football part of it. It is debatable that he brings that much more to the table than Mack. He is not head and shoulders better than Mack. And Ballard sure as hell is not giving up any capital to bring him on. 
 

There is less than a zero % chance Hunt is a Colt.

There is room for both him and Mack, not going to comment further on the rest

Same here, but, that sentiment can't be written into a law or practiced in an unwritten policy by a company or else that is illegal discrimination....the thought that a crime is more punishable because the victim is a certain gender.

 

At least, if any man had the guts to sue an employer for unfair punishment.

 

So its best to just ignore that aspect of it, IMO.

OK - leave the character issues out of it.  Ballard won't but let's play pretend again and say that Hunt is a boy scout.

 

Do you think the reports of a contract extension for Mack are true?    I would be willing to bet they are true. The Colts are a top tier running team with Mack, Wilkins, Hines and Williams.  All under contract and all relatively cheap.  Ballard has said he "likes them picks."  The question in the thread is would he consider Hunt even if having to give up a pick to get him.  The answer is somewhere between no and hell no.  Why would he pay Mack and also give up resources to get Hunt?

The OP didnt  ask if we think its likely to happen, they asked if we would do it for a third round tender so i said yes.  if we were voting on if its likely i would have said no

No we'd have to not only give up a 3rd rounder but we would also have to put in a tender that the Browns where not willing to match.  So we'd have to spend a lot of money for him.

 

Not to mention he's had some off the field issues as well

He had to kick her when she was on the ground? seriously? The pushing was permissible, the kick crossed the line.

I support the league allowing the use of weed. But as of right now, its a player with a suspension history breaking the rules. The risk outweighs the rewards.

Should not have kicked her but he served 8 games for that and it's over as far as the league is concerned

 

I bet there are guys on the team now that smoke, could not care less about that

Nah. There's a Kareem Hunt without the baggage that we can get with a 3rd-4th round pick. His name is Zach Moss.

 

I don't think running back nears the top of our list of concerns though, and I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't addressed at all.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player.
