Does this team make any trades before deadline?

The guy's name is Mikey Salads. Protect your feelings for right now...

He's some twitter random with 300 followers. I wouldn't hold my breath... but if true, that trade would be pretty nice, even though I feel like him and Pittman's roles kind of overlap.

I don’t think we make any trades. We can’t afford to.

 

Does it bother anyone that we have average/below average overall talent, and no cap space now?

Yes! And next year we have to pay Q near LT money to keep him… a guard. 
 

We’re going to be stuck in cap space purgatory without the talent at important positions to show for it.

The cap is going to increase by over 20 million next year

You do know the cap is going to go up a lot the next few seasons?

Parker does have two "cost-controlled" years left on his contract. Perhaps him, along with a draft pick, could be the WR room going into next season. In that scenario, I doubt Pascal re-signs though.

This is Ballard doing what he likes to do.  Looking for bargains with upside.  Players on the clearance rack.

I know...and doing so at WR...has been largely been a failure.

 

I will take Parker of course, but I don't really see it moving the needle the next two years.

Reddit rumor says Parker for a 5th. I'm skeptical. (just a rumor, not verified, doesn't seem like a reliable source, please take with a grain of salt)

 

 

This tweet did follow up a tweet from NFL Rumors sightings numerous sources that we have called the Dolphins about Parker.  So that feels pretty solid.  We will know soon enough if something goes down.  It certainly looks like we have interest on deadline day.

Not happening.

Ballard is very good at picking and choosing where to spend his money.  Not everyone can get paid.  He has to draw the line eventually.  Makes no sense to overpay at the guard position to a player with chronic back issues.  His back issues will only get worse with time.  Ballard is smart enough to know that.  JMO.

No offense, but this statement makes no sense to me. 

I think it does to GM’s.  Their success and the team’s success depends on them making good decisions. Tackles get big contracts all the time.  Much easier to overpay there for a more important position.  Overpaying for guards is pretty low on the priority list I would think.  There are more important positions that need to be paid.

Nelson, Reed, Pinter, Pryor, Smith. 

 

Would save some coin, and probably not change the talent level much.  Save money and realign the salary structure by position.

Do you know many games Nelson’s chronic back issues have cost him?    Zero. 
 

And he’s had three seasons of superior performance.   This is the only season he’s graded poorly, and is due in part to his foot, not his back. 
 

Why are you bringing this up now?  We have two posters whose only purpose is to remind us that neither Quenton Nelson nor Darius Leonard or even Braden Smith and perhaps even Nyheim Hines are worth what we’re paying them.   What is new about your argument?   Do you think the dead horse has any life left for you to beat out of it?   What’s different about your argument that hundreds of posters here are suddenly going to change their minds?   
 

Whats?   The?   Point?!?!?

    • I was disappointed in Wentz but I will say this our D was so disappointing against Jacks that they made me so angry. 
    • The problem with Adams is that GB can just franchise tag him. So I don't think he's going anywhere for free. However, in order to get him to sign it and not have it be a messy situation, they would likely set up a trade (with his approval) that works for everybody involved. If Rodgers leaves, it will be interesting to see just how committed he is to playing with him. 
    • OR, there was every reason to believe Campbell would finally be a talented member of a good passing attack. Darn that injury!  And every reason to believe Pascal & Hines would once again be good again in 2021. And crowd favorite TY still here.  With our top line, and All-Pro RB striking fear in defenses, our passing game, 200 yds per game, was erratic and sub-par. Hmmm!  GEE, who addressed the DE Position with our 1st & 2nd? LMAO
    • This team, as constructed, seems to resemble a poor man's version of the TEN team. To make matters worse, the Colts are more like TEN was back BEFORE the 2019 season (not the current version).   Look at these parallels: Coming off a 9-win season where they narrowly missed the playoffs by losing to a divisional rival in the final week (which was the Colts) Great RB (Henry) who had just exploded onto the scene Huge question at QB, both in the short and long-term with Mariota, who had a huge cap hit that upcoming season Lack of playmakers in the passing game. Only viable WR was Corey Davis, who had nearly 900 yards that season, but no other pass catcher had more than 500 yards (sounds familiar) Here is what TEN did: Traded for Ryan Tannehill for cheap to compete with Mariota as the QB2 Drafted AJ Brown to be their WR1 in the 2nd round Pretty much crushed that draft (Simmons, Nate Davis, Amani Hooker, David Long)  And when Mariota inevitably struggled, Tannehill took over and everything sort of clicked on offense, with Brown breaking out and even Jonnu Smith becoming productive.   It took the defense a couple of seasons and lots of investments to catch up, but it appears they have. I think the Colts have a bit of a head start there, but they definitely need help at ER and S.   I am skeptical the Colts can get as lucky as TEN got, let alone pull all of that off. But whether it's through a post-hype lottery ticket like Trubisky, or the draft, they at least have to try. when it comes to QB (and WR/TE as well). 
    • I don't think he was thrown under the bus. I think this is a simple acknowledgment that the team needs to play better, and that includes Wentz. I don't think it's a signal about their plans in either direction, it was just a stating of the obvious.
