The problem with that is that Evan Engram hasn't beem an impact TE. He came in with extremely high upside, but he has only really had 1 solid season in his career so far. On the plus side, he only had 3 drops last season instead of the 8 or 11 in prior seasons.

That & it makes the Kyler Granson pick questionable.

Zadarius Smith released. I'd definitely take a chance on him coming off a surgery. Hell of a player.

By far the better of the 2 Smith's they signed in FA that year. Surprised the extension went to Preston!

My guess also.  You’re going to overpay.  We get outbidded every year

The over-bidding sets the market value. So, you're not gonna get a cheaper option by waiting for next year. The market is set and it'll go up.

 

You only get a cheaper option by choosing to pay for a player that hasn't yet shown that they are deserving that type of money.

 

I agree that if we are getting outbid for players that we may want, then Ballard needs to change his approach. However, I think it's more likeley that he hasn't even swung the bat yet.

WOW! I was way too optimistic we would be able to sign him for 5-6M a year. I guess the Rams see him as their LT of the future. Good for him. 

Ugh, I was on the Notebloom train as well!

That's the best paid cap space in the league! 

I think you have to pay that amount because you never know when you are going to get another chance at a cap like that.

Jags are signing Kirk. Jags get 4 impact players, we get air, like always..


they can have Kirk for 4 years and $84 million.  He was someone I wanted but not for $21 a year.

It is 'up to' but its still ridiculous. Also I imagine guarantees aren't that high. But its going to make it harder to sign any other FA WR .

We say that every year and the prices keep going up. The first problem with the current strategy of CB is that we never add any impact players via FA. The second problem is those players go to our AFC competitors. Guess who are the finalists for Robinson? Kansas City and Cleveland. Cleveland is loading up....the Colts are imploding! Its not hard to predict how this is going to turn out.

i agree but you don’t give that money to THAT quality of receiver.  I don’t mind overpaying for talent that’s worth it.  But Kirk getting paid that much is a HUGE overpay.  This is one of the reasons why prices go up.

 

now if he doesn’t play up to $21 mill standards, we would be the first people to want the GM gone.

 

this is why Byron wanted Baalke GONE lol

    • Ballard should be fired.    We have no Oline depth. No Dline depth.  (if Buck or Grove get injured, we have late rounders backing them up, Ben Banagou is still on the roster somehow?) Hole at QB  Our best secondary player is an aging veteran that we signed in FA, behind him is Moore and Rogers ..) Moore probably not gonna be here too much longer, and Rogers Sr is the only quality depth piece there.    We drafted well at safety this year, and he had a quality signing with McLeod (bridge player) Thomas II has played above expectations, and Cross needs some time.    The main problem is there's no depth for the Oline (hole at RG, possible need at LT) Similar problem at DE --> Yannick hasn't been all that great, probably lost the trade overall. Kwity is often injured. Dayo is alright but nothing special yet, Tyquan Lewis is solid but often injured. Turay isn't on the team, Banagou is a bust.    for DT depth we have Cowart and Johnson II ? It's poor, it's very poor when you look at it. We've got some real talent in the starting spots, but when you really look at the roster, to use ballard's own terminology, "the cupboards are bare"    
    • Nothing is new here. The Oline has been struggling.  Yeah our offensive line has regressed since it's top level play.  But to say "after 2 games we r seeing the issue with this team is" doesn't make sense because they've improved, at least from what i've seen, since saturday has been here.    We have a rookie at LT, and a 7th round backup at RG. --> with almost no good depth, outside of an aging dennis kelly. 
    • we need more depth at DT. If we lost Buckner or Grover we'd be in trouble. 
    • Think Williams wrapped up the Heisman tonite,  USC is sitting pretty going into Pac 12 title game. The D has forced turnovers all season long, and club is #1 in nation in turnover differential by a large margin (#28 closer to #2 then #2 is to USC).
