If that's true, we should get at least a 5th for Marlon Mack. Ertz is 30 years old and this was the return.

 

Yeah but RB position is a position that you can replenish from the draft with quicker ROI from the draft than the TE position which takes longer from the draft for ROI, and longer to assimilate to an offense if you don't have experience, IMO.  Even highly ranked TEs like Kittle, Hockenson, Fant, Kelce took longer to flourish in the NFL after the draft while RBs and WRs lately have hit the ground running in their rookie years. 

 

6th rounder is the most you will get for Mack, IMO. Better off keeping him and using him well.

Mack isn’t a 3 time pro bowler

Marlon Mack is also 25 years old. Zach Ertz is 30. The Cardinals are not getting the Pro Bowl version of Zach Ertz. They are getting a Maxx Williams replacement version of Zach Ertz for one year. It's obvious that Ertz has declined over the last few years if you've paid attention to him.

Mack looked good on Monday, We would be smart to keep him. Have patience brother. I know Monday was a nut kick, I was sick from it but we are getting to reel off 4 or 5 wins in a row. Trust me.

Yeah, the offense looked solid. I think Wentz will be our new franchise QB for around the next ten years. A lot of our problems Monday were due to injury honestly in the secondary. That should of been an easy win. The Titans will have a couple hard matchups coming up, so theoretically, we could be tied with them in two weeks.

 

It's just been exhausting watching the first five weeks I guess. I think we actually have hope though. There's a bunch of teams that don't at this time. I'm just worried about the future with the lack of salary cap we are going to have after signing Nelson, and being without a 1st round pick. Next year, the chickens may come home to roost as we finish paying our own.

Huh?    Lack of salary cap money after we sign Nelson?    Am I understanding you correctly?

 

Ballpark figures for next year….  The Colts have roughly $60 mill, which pegs us around top-5.    Nelson gets $20m, so we’ll have roughly $40m for all the other signings.   That’s more than most teams.    We’re not in bad shape all things considered.    Our financial team will keep us in a good place.

We have 29 FA's after the season. I realize not all of them are expensive and we won't re-sign them all, but with only $40 million in cap room, we are going to be extremely limited in what we can do. We will lose some good players, and it will be tough to replace them not only in FA, but in the draft next year without a 1st round pick (most likely) when we could of used a cheap talent like that. I'm not sure we can depend on anything but growth from who we have to get better as the cap will restrict us cap-wise, and talent-wise, we will more than likely be worse.
