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.

    • Did Blankenship actually win the kicking competition last year?  More than a few people seemed surprised he won the job.     For nearly 15 years prior to 2019, we never had to think about the kicker.  If Vinatieri ever missed one early, he almost always made up for it late in a clutch situation.  Of course he probably played a year too long in 2019.
    • I like Blankenship, and if we can keep 2 kickers he'd be great. He'd be the "inside the 40" guy, but we'd need a bomb leg for outside the 40. He was short from about 50 last year, that's brutal. Once again, hine sight is 20/20, but we should have signed Gano when Carolina waived him, now the Giants got a pro bowler with a cannon leg.
    • Thanks for sharing   I imagine that you already know this, but whats interesting is that if you look at the Pro Bowl players from the last few years many of them are around 4.7 or even slower    Cameron Jordon ran a 4.69 JJ Watt Ran a 4.81 TJ Watt ran a 4.69 Nick Bosa Ran a 4.79 Joey Bosa Ran a 4.88   Of Course its better to be faster, but a big tall strong guy could be still be a pro bowler   (Of course not saying Dayo has arrived)    My hope is that we have 2 DEs screaming around the edges in the very near future
    • Absolutely brutal miss in buffalo within the context of the game.  Never been convinced by Blankenship, especially from 45 plus.  Makes total sense to add competition here. 
    • I agree with this. East is making some good points about Blackmon's need to improve his deep coverage. But his rookie season was so strange, and he had so little time to prepare at a position he had just started to play in college, that you have to give him some slack as he matures in the job. I think he'll be a pleasant surprise this season to those who are worried about him.
