More details on the financials. Breakdown of how much is incentive-based will be interesting. But still a good deal for him and shows that Edge guys are still getting paid even this late in the game.

I thought it would look like this.  Up to 10m.  Worth the chance if you view your team as a contender.  Good for him.

really liked what I saw from him last year. I don't think he's someone you plug in as a starter, but he's fantastic depth and can be great to have for match-up purposes.

After what Irsay said today Newsome could be the pick if he's there at 21.  Looks like It's going to be ER, LT, CB in no particular order.  He mentioned those positions as the primary needs.  Reading between the lines on his comments it looks like they made Houston an offer but he said there are other ER's still available and he appears not worried about finding a veteran.  He mentioned extensions coming up so one or two could happen pretty soon.

Anyone else surprised that Malik Hooker hasn't signed with anyone yet?

Actually yes very. I thought he was for sure signing with Dallas. They signed Beal but I still figured he would be added depth for them. Maybe the physicals and medical side have not been good for him.

Yes and No. His injury history is the obvious red flag, not being signed by anyone yet and he may be just biding his time as well. Some team will eventually sign him to a modest, 1-2 year deal with incentives.

Good signing 

Why all the 1 year deals though 

Similar to last year.  Maybe he wants a lot of latitude to sign the kids next year?

It does?     

 

Maybe for you, but all it does for me is move it back a round or so.

 

 

We have 6 corners that have played well for us. Rhodes Moore Carrie Rock Rodgers Tell. How many more corners do we need?

Fair point.   100 percent.   
 

But I wouldn’t feel good enough about that group that I wouldn’t rule out taking a corner in the 4th or 5th round if I liked them enough.  You may find someone that you’d keep over Carrie.   Or if someone gets hurt, you’d have a better quality replacement.    
 

Some of this depends on how many more picks we acquire?  I’m expecting a minimum of two.   Ballard has never had less than 8 picks in any draft.  Right now, we have 6.

Unless we trade down and acquire more picks which I fully expect us to do, imo we have other more pressing needs. I fully expect our first three picks to be T and double down on edge.

You’re expecting us to double-down on edge with two of our first three picks?    Wow, I sure didn’t see that coming.....

We haven't done anything to address pass rush unless you count signing Rochelle and Mohammed.

    • I don't buy that Eason was picked with an assumption to take over either. I do think he was rated to be a solid backup at minimum, with traits and the hopes he might develop over time into more.   With Ehlinger, he simply doesn't have the physical traits to be more than a very very limited backup. Just doesn't have arm strength and lacks size. I guess he can learn and improve pocket presence, but if you're starting with poor arm strength and height out of the gate, why bother. IMO, he would have likely been available post draft. I just would have preferred to get a guy with at minimum physical trait upside, or a guy who can impact special teams.   It's a 6th round pick, so not gong to lose sleep over it. I just think there were other high character guys (if that's what you want) out there with better traits in positions we needed more.   Leonard really wasn't underrated though, or some brilliant pick. He was tied for the 39th best rating in the draft. He was taken 36th. He pretty much was drafted where the experts predicted.   The jury is still out on Okereke. IMO he's the weak link on the D right now. Willis is really growing on me. Not flashy, but solid role player and great kid.
    • That doesn't make sense at all. We have Braden Smith, who has been one of the top RT's in the league and needs a new contract. He's not taking a lesser contract to kick inside to RG and it wouldn't make sense to have a RG making RT money. With bringing in O'Neill, that would mean you have 2 high $$ RT's and playing one at RG. I think our replacement at RG is already on the roster (Pinter or Reed).   I don't see us making a move for O'Neill and despite salary cap concerns, I don't see them letting O'Neill get away, as he's far and away the best player on their OL. If he hits FA, he'll cost way more than we're wanting to pay.
    • I went A B C.   I loved the Paye pick, Dayo is a high reward but high risk thing. I docked this a lot due to injury risk. That said, I’m okay with the concept of getting two potential impact players at DE back to back. If Dayo comes back to form, him along with Paye on the opposite side and Buckner in the middle with Stewart, should make us a dangerous DL.    I went C the rest of the draft but honestly don’t know much about those players. To me, once you get passed the 4th round, those other guys are typically camp bodies or special teamsters. Every now and again a GEM is found but right now, we can’t really say.     it’s why I hate giving draft grades at this point in the off-season. I mean the Jags have an A+ right now. What if Trevor Busts out? Or what if  Ehlinger balls out and somehow wins the starting job from Wentz?
    • He's like the fans.  For a split second, he almost got a little emotional talking about Luck, but like he said, you have to keep moving forward.  You have no choice.
    • What's the situation of Skai Moore from udfas couple of years ago? Anyone thinks he can make the 53?
