I might be in the minority but I'm quite enjoying watching the "no-name" wide receivers get their opportunity and develop.   Are the all superstars, not even close, but for one reason it ano

Did you mean something dirty    If so       

Why would Chicago give up their leading WR when they are in the playoff hunt?

Just pay the price and get A J Green for a 5th if he is healthy, the Bengals know they won't get much more for a guy they will lose in free agency anyways. At least he can run more routes than John Ross. They have Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd and other young TEs to lean on.

It’s sit a week right? That’s not terrible 

 

They won't even have more than a 20 game package anyway. That's not a major factor IMO. 

 

With TY hurt there's a small chance they do something, but I still doubt it.

Would love to get Green for cheap. Fits Rivers style of WR also.

Yeah, if the Bengals owner/GM plays hard ball and wants a 4th, let him know that it can go up to a 4th based on playing time, make it conditional and start with a 5th.

20 play package, I meant. A new receiver will only be on the field for 20 plays or so in the first week, even without COVID. So a 5 day waiting period isn't a major issue.

If you want to go all in and try to win the SB just pay the price and get someone like Amari Cooper.  He would be our playmaker for quite a long time.  If the Cowboys lose tonight I think Jerry would do it.  If you want to go cheap then go get a Golden Tate or AJ Green.  You get what you pay for.  Rivers showed today he can hit the deep ball.  Our receiving corp is young and still developing.  We need an experienced WR right away to stay in the hunt.  We are now tied for 1st in the division and now one of the top teams in the conference.  We can win this thing with Rivers.  After today I'm really expecting Ballard to make some kind of move at the deadline.

We cant afford to pay him his $20m a year.

Sure we can. Without sweating it

I think they are more likely to bring Fountain and Harris back to the main roster and depend on Johnson, Pascal, and Pittman to be their top three.  I do think you could see Hines playing a few snaps at WR too.  

This is the most likely scenario

Yeah his salary isn’t the issue.  I think the price tag Jerry would want for a trade for him is the issue because I don’t think Jerry is interested in trading him.

I would agree there. And I don’t think Ballard is gonna give up anything major for him.

Me either.  Ballard doesn’t like to trade picks and nor should he with how heavily they have invested in WR in the past couple of drafts.

That’s why i said in another thread, that I’d take a flyer at John Ross for no higher than a conditional 5th

It would be a heavy sweat. It would prevent us from re-signing a couple of our own free agents, for sure. 

 

So I guess it's about whether he'd be worth it.

That’s more realistic but I think we both agree Harris and fountain coming back are the most realistic option.  Still if the Colts were to make a trade what you have proposed is much more realistic.

    • Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.   I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.  
    • TY - 2Y/22M - he can still play but he’s not Tyreek Hill taking the top of defenses anymore, and with his disappearing act at the beginning of the year I’m afraid to sign him any longer or with too much guaranteed. Partly for sentimental reasons I want him to stay, but I do think he’s still got some juice.    Mack - 1Y/1M - Likable player but due to his position and injury, no way can I justify giving him much more than vet minimum.    Houston - 1Y/8M - Fell off a lot this year compared to his first year. Still our best edge player, basically by default and I’d be hoping we can get a more 2019 performance out of him at arguably our weakest position on the team.    Autry - Walk. He will price himself out with an inflated sense of value because he’s gotten decent sack numbers, but he is the definition of JAG and I’d only keep him if he agreed to a minimum contract.    Rhodes - 1Y/6M - He was a stud this year. If we could guarantee that he won’t revert back to his last two years in Minnesota I would be willing to go longer and higher. With how much he fell off after getting paid the first time, I’m not giving him a long term deal.    Walker - 1Y/2M - He was playing a very small percentage of downs at the end of the year so I’m keeping him less based on ability and more based on leadership and football savvy.    Hooker - Walk. Both sides need to just move on. I’d keep him at minimum too but I think both sides want a fresh start. Also a little miscast in the current defense so no reason to force a square peg into a round hole.    Brissett - 1Y/5M - Too big of a fan of Brissett as a man to want to see him leave. I don’t want him starting but he’s a very solid backup and compared to the 20M we gave him last year, I can live with his salary being at 1/4 of that this year.    Pascal and MAC both tendered at 2.24M. I want to bring in Kenny Golladay or Allen Robinson and Pascal is JAG so he’s not falling into my future plans much. I’m a big fan of MAC and I wouldn’t mind seeing him play the Jack Doyle role. He’s a better blocker, has better hands, and is more explosive.    I may be lowballing some guys but I’d hate to fall into the trap of overvaluing our guys and keeping them just because you want to keep your own. Unfortunately, I think the five most important positions on the team also coincide with our five weakest positions on the team; QB, WR, CB, DE, and LT. Fortunately we’ve got a good cap situation and this is the perfect year to be needing a QB. 
    • If we let Walker Walk, (and I think it’s likely) it’s not because we want an upgrade.   It’s because we simply don’t play him enough.   I think East Street has the numbers in snaps, but I think Walker is roughly playing 25-30 percent of the snaps.   That’s it.    We can't pay him enough for that.   Some other team will PLAY him more so they will PAY him more.    When Walker is off the field, we are either playing a 4-2-5 or a 4-1-6.   Leonard plays basically 100 percent of the snaps and I think Oke is about 55-60 percent.     There is a method to our madness.  
    • I'm surprised some folks want to resign Walker. Imo we definitely need an upgrade.... I'd let him walk.
    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
