5th year option is average of top 5 contracts.

 

I'm sure that number would be $30m +

Top 5 contracts at the position.   Right now, is there even ONE WR who makes $30m?   Not that I’m aware of.

 

Is it possible 5 years from now?   Sure, it’s possible, but I don’t think it’s likely.   Right now a contract of 5/100 is considered big.   Hard to see the average going up that high, that fast.   
 

Just my two cents, and often not worth that much.    :thmup:

Ballard for two guys that will contribute day one.    

By the end of today, Goodell will be reading the picks from his bed

Buckner is a freakin all-pro. Relax.

Nope it's Jordan Love. I'm glad he gets to go to a place that won't force him to play this year because he is not ready.

 

I see him more as a Colin Kaepernick with less athleticism than the Patrick Mahomes comparison everybody is throwing around.

 

Don't know how Aaron Rodgers is going to feel about this though...

People forget Kaep has an arm just not top of the line accuracy or vision.

Was referring to trading up for Love.

Wouldn't be surprised if Ballards first pick is OL.

Some will have a meltdown when Ballard doesn’t take a QB for awhile.  I think he will take a developmental type like Morgan or Gordon, if he takes any one this year.  But I wouldn’t mind Eason or Hurts.

Favre didn’t mentor Rodgers & Rodgers has always been called aloof & kinda selfish.  I doubt he’s gonna be enthused to mentor his replacement.  Be interesting to know his contract situation because I’d take him over Rivers as a stop gap or win now QB.

Rodgers just led his team to the NFC Title Game and is healthy. This pick makes ZERO sense. He still has at least 3 or 4 good to great years left. Love will be drinking coffee on the sideline and holding a clipboard for a long while. Rodgers is a top 5 QB in the league with ease.

I’m in the same camp. CB has said trenches first. However, there looks to be some absolute fantastic WR’s left, Delpit still on the board and the TE’s. We definitely have options that in most drafts, would be first rounders.

There has to be more to it...injuries or something behind the scenes. Perhaps a messy divorce is in the future.

How would you guys feel if we trade #34 for a 2021 1st and say 2020 4th rounder?

I’d like that trade a lot, just for the fact that we will guarantee have a better pick

December of 2014.   More than 5 years ago when he was young and stupid.  How long you going to hold on to this?

    • I wouldn't be shocked if we picked up a LB later in the draft or a cheaper FA for depth reasons... but TBH, I think we'll see EJ Speed get more reps at LB this year.  The coaching staff says he has as good of physical traits as any LB on the team, but coming from Tarleton State he needed a bit of NFL coaching refinement.     I also tend to think with our secondary we'll see a lot of plays with 4 DL, 2 LBs and 5 DBs.  Meaning Leonard and Oke likely get the bulk of the LB work if Walker walks (which seems inevitable).  With Leonard, Oke, Speed, Franklin, Adams I think we're OK at LB without adding another one (with Glasgow being a 6th man unlikely to see LB snaps, but on the roster for ST work).  We also have the potential of Skai Moore coming back from covid opt-out.     Ballard has said in numerous press conferences that he likes Walker but the price would have to be right for Walker and the Colts.  I see Walker demanding high dollar and Ballard letting him go try to get that $ elsewhere.  As I noted above, I think the coaching staff is pretty high on EJ Speed and we have pretty solid LBs (well a stud in Leonard) with Oke, Adams, Franklin already on the team.  Like you said, I won't be shocked to see Ballard go after a later round LB in the draft or bring in a cheaper vet for depth purposes, but I don't think we'll miss Walker all that much if he leaves (we especially won't miss him if he is demanding a huge contract as we have other areas where we can/need to spend $).
    • I don’t have a specific number.  But I’m doing some basic math.      Enough money was lost this year that the salary cap number could’ve been much lower.  But it would’ve blown things up for all 32 teams, so it was agreed that the absolute floor would be $175m.   A few revenue streams came in a little better than expected so the current number is $180.5.   It may go up another 1-2 mill, but that’s reportedly it.    The agreement between management and players called for a gradual increase as things returned to normal.  Neither side wanted a sharp increase like — you know — $40m in one year.   Makes things too volatile for everyone.  The goal was to return things to normal in 3-4 years depending on how long the Covid issue remains.   That’s what I know.    Im not saying you’re 100 percent wrong about the figure just yet.   Only that it’s (A) too soon to know, the decision is a ways off.   No one knows if, or how many tickets will be sold for the ‘21 season?   And (B) it’s likely a wrong figure because the talk of gradual and manageable figures to return to normal for the betterment of both sides.   Thats what I remember reading when things got settled last year.   I’m guessing we won’t know for quite some time until revenue figures for ‘21 are better understood. 
    • 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.
