Offseason Dreaming.

Recommended Posts

We pick up FAs DE Clowney and CB Roby or Bradburry. Draft Kinclaw, QB Gordon or Fromm, WR Claypool, and best talent available after that. Oh and find a way to trade away Brissett and get rid of Hoyer. Let Kelly and our Drafted QB battle it out to start.

Clowney is grossly overrated

Depends what you call overrated. 8-10 sacks a year and an elite run-stopper is fine with me. :thmup:

Id like a starting D.   Houston-Autry-Kinclaw-Clowney. Okereke-Walker-Leonard. Roby-Hooker-Willis-Desir. Moore for Nickle

Replace Roby with Damon Arnette in the 2nd round and you have my exact sentiments.

Don't forget Leonard Williams is a FA too. 

My aunt is a Jets fan, so I know them well, and Leonard Williams is absolutely terrible. He's an average run-stopper with no pass-rush ability that did nothing after getting traded to the Giants. Absolute bust at this point.

Do you know how many sacks Clowney had this year?    I believe the number is 3.

 

Do you know how many seasons Clowney has had 10 sacks?   I believe that number is...   0.   As in zero.

 

Are you ready to pay a minimum if 5/100 for that?   How about 6/120?   It may take that much.

2017 he had 9.5 sacks. 2018 he had 9. He had an off year last year. He is an elite run stopper as well. I would give him 5/100 yes. Probably not 6/120. Everyone overpays in FA and he's 27 years old.

Trade for Carr. Keep Brissett and Kelly as back ups.  Sign Ngakoue. Draft Kinlaw.  Take 2 WRs in the draft.  Sign Austin Hooper. Sign Byron Jones.

My off season dream is 

 

Upgrade QB (draft or FA) 

Get a legit 3T (draft or FA)

 

Everything else is gravy. If I can add gravy, I'd take an OT somewhat early, I'd replace both Funch and Ebron with Chase Claypool, take thumper AJ Dillon late, a speedy project CB from a small school, and a late round speed WR from a small school.

Two good years.    Two good years out of six.    The other four years are nothing special.

 

I’m not saying JC is a bad player, but he rarely gives you your money’s worth.  I think he’s far more reputation than he is substance.   He doesn’t strike me as a Ballard type signing,  but you may be right.   Players of his caliber rarely get on the market, so maybe we go after him?

There was a cbssports article today that said the Colts and Giants are interested in Clowney. So it very well may happen.

Pipe dream but I love it. I would also like to add a big move the chains type RB via the draft or FA. I like our trio but it would be nice to have another Robert Turbin type RB that almost always guaranteed us a 1st down every time we only needed 1 or 2 yards.

Yes, I agree it's mine to. I still think we get Rivers and draft a QB.

Well said. Clowney is a good player but is overrated. Hopefully the Colts pass on this opportunity. Instead, how about Ngokoue and Austin Hooper for off season pickups; draft Love and a top WR along with a 3T with the first 3 picks, and its off to the races!

If we get Rivers, an idea I’m vehemently against, it definitely signals that JB and Hoyer is gone. It could mean that we draft another QB or allows a safety net to allow Kelly to attempt to win the job but if he still has more growing to do, the team feels safe with a Rivers type guy. I just don’t see Rivers (@25 million+) a good solution and I don’t feel as he is a mentoring type team player. As nauseated as I would be seeing him, I’d much rather add Brady as a 1 year gap and mentor to the new QB of the future.

Clowney, definitely overrated and gets injured a lot. Match Ynagouke's franchise offer and you'll have a dominant D-line with drafting Kinlaw or Gallimore.

    • Not trying to be argumentative but you simplifying this issue is not the reality of it all. Not only are there 53 players plus 10 practice squad players (90 in training camp) there are how many others around a NFL team? Doctors, trainers, coaches, assistant coaches, coordinators and whoever else. Just the sheer space need to keep social distance is impossible.  All of these people have families away from a locker room so it's not like they are going to be quarantined.  How about the mental aspect of the players? Can the players put all of this out of their thought process when their mindset has to be 100% about the game itself?  We are always reminded about distractions in the locker room and how it can have a negative effect.  IMO this goes much deeper than what can and can't be controlled.   
    • Its funny you say that.... I feel the same......   Strange times......
    • I would tend to agree   There is significant $$ moving around so I believe there will be a season of some sort.... maybe shortened.....   I think the NFL union may hold the players back from competing until there is a resolution or some protection.   We are seeing a crazy jump in new cases in Texas. (My daughter just tested positive   she is ok now)    If we are in mid August and the new cases in Covid starts to drop AND the death rates are dropping we may see a season.....   If not..... we may see a start in Oct......   Who knows....    
    • There is a big difference. After they all get initially tested the chances of it spreading among players is low. With the amount of times they will be tested and the fact none are going to even get in the facility with even a slight cough until they are tested the chances of it spreading is pretty small. Yes initially there will be some. I don’t even believe there are all these asystematic  cases. I think there are a lot of false positives. Which is why the nfl has a different protocol for them.
